If you are the kind of person who loves to pamper their skin then you probably have a collection of skin care creams and treatments already. Those of you who don’t have the time to visit the spa for a treatment and for those of you who don’t have a lot of money to spend on skin care regimes then I have a few tips that will help you out.
Most of these treatments are affordable and you will see the results of these treatments in a matter of a few days. Start by educating yourself on the ingredients and products that will be beneficial for your skin.
Every skin type has a different requirement and thus it would be a good idea to know what products to invest in. Start your own skin care regime at home in order to nourish your skin and pamper it daily.
Another benefit of creating your own skin care products at home is that you can avoid allergic reactions and breakouts on your skin.
Aloe Vera gel is a great ingredient for your skin. You can use the gel in face masks or as a cream on your skin. The gel nourishes and hydrates your skin while also eliminating tans and getting rid of sunburns.
Milk can also be used as a moisturizer. Wash your face with warm milk or soak your feet in milk for a few minutes at night. Milk will help to exfoliate the dead skin cells from your body and moisturize your skin. Coconut milk can be used as a moisturizer too.
If you suffer from blackheads and whiteheads you can use nuts to get rid of them. Grind almonds or walnuts and add a few drops of milk to the powder and use it as a face scrub. The paste will help to open pores and eliminate blackheads from your skin.
Cucumber is infamous as a remedy for dark circles and puffiness in the under eye region. Simply place slices of cucumber on your eyes and rest for a few minutes. Continue this until the dark circles under the eyes vanish.
Citrus fruits can be used as an astringent. If your skin is scarred as a result of acne or has blemishes on it then you can rub lemon slices on your face; the juice will reduce the blemishes and scars on the surface of the skin. Lemon can also be used to bleach the surface of the skin and reduce the appearance of a sunburn or tan.
