Are your store-bought beauty lotions and creams not effective? It can be annoying when you put in hard-earned money to purchase them and yet you never see the results you want. In this article, you’ll learn how to use common and basic ingredients found in your kitchen to make your own simple facial masks and scrubs! Making your own beauty products can also help to keep harmful synthetics and chemicals off your skin. The natural recipes will be aimed at the top five most typical skin issues.

Not a surprise there! Honey contains a substance which has the ability to hold and contain moisture levels in the skin. It is also a good remedy for clearing up acne as it deep cleanses the pores and prevents further bacteria from growing in the skin. For a relatively easy face scrub, mix 1 tablespoon of honey, 2 tablespoons of finely ground almonds and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Gently rub this mixture in circular motions on your face and jaw line, avoiding the eye area. Rinse off with warm water after.

It can be surprising – how these all natural in origin recipes can be so beneficial. Even when compared with expensive skin care products, they can stand their ground. They work to improve the skin’s texture and contain no colorants, perfume and preservatives. It helps to soften the epidermis, leaving the skin smooth and hydrated. They boost the skin’s moisture levels and enhance its ability to protect itself from free radicals and toxin. These benefits are very similar to those imported creams, lotions and masks claim as results, except homemade skin care are inexpensive and safe to use.

If you are new to this, I would suggest doing a quick Google search online. In that way, you will find a wide myriad of possibilities in natural and organic skin care and will certainly be overwhelmed at the amount of information. With hundreds or even thousands of recipes for making scrubs, creams and masks, you will be off to a busy start!

This face mask will have you manually remove your face’s dead skin cells build-up using 4 pineapple chunks and 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. The olive oil is rich in vitamin E which will renew your skin’s youthful glow. Blend the ingredients into a smooth paste and leave it on your face for 15 minutes.

Bananas are rich in everything that’s good for the body and skin – fiber, zinc, potassium, vitamins A, B, E and F. They have calming properties that help in reducing skin inflammation, blemishes and swelling. A facial mask that would benefit dehydrated skin most, combines papaya, banana and avocado. Simply mash and combine all ingredients into a smooth paste. Spread it evenly on your face for up to 20 minutes and rinse off.

As with any natural skin treatment and mask, don’t expect instantaneous results. Be sure that you incorporate these recipes you’ve learned into your routine and apply them regularly to achieve the healthy, glowing skin you want.
