Freshen up for spring! After being put to the test in winter, your skin needs to be pampered. Infallible and well-kept, grandmother’s tricks are gaining ground against chemical lotions year after year. Head for these natural and economical techniques that do not age!
While the beauty departments are jostling with slightly chemical cosmetics, your conscience calls you to reason to bet on natural products. To have beautiful skin without looking far, many grandmothers’ tricks promise you a peach complexion without going through the supermarket box. These healthy recipes that play with the effects of time will convince you quickly enough to establish themselves as your new beauty routine.
1. A Cucumber Lotion to Moisturize the Skin
The seeded and peeled cucumber can be mixed with honey and organic almond milk to create an effective moisturizing lotion! Apply the mask in the morning and evening on a clean face and rinse.
Note: the recipe can be stored for four days without any problem!
2. Black Tea for Oily Skin
To be infused in boiling water, cooled black tea will increase its field of action tenfold to guarantee you healthy, non-oily skin. You can do this ritual every morning and evening.
An excellent tip: repeat this beauty gesture for two weeks.
3. The Honey Mask to Hydrate
Honey is the ultimate natural ingredient for soft skin with many regenerating properties and is known to help the skin heal. Honey will deeply hydrate your skin and you can use it as a mask.
4. Coffee Grounds for Exfoliation
The coffee grounds used as a scrub are the right solution to have beautiful skin. This mixture will help you get rid of impurities!
5. Salt to Remove Dead Skin
To “pimp” the epidermis and get rid of dead skin, mix two handfuls of coarse sea salt, two tablespoons of olive oil, and a few drops of lemon or lavender essential oils. Rub to distribute the salt crystals and remove dead skin evenly.
This salty lotion will tone your skin by acting as a natural scrub!
6. Sweet Almond Oil for Dry Skin
Sweet almond oil has several strings to its charitable bows!
This natural fatty substance nourishes, soothes, tones, and repairs the skin. Rich in vitamins and iron, sweet almond oil also strengthens the hydrolipidic film on the epidermis and erases the signs of skin aging.
Apply a few drops on the face every day, making it well and making circular movements to act in-depth.
7. Turmeric To Say Stop to Redness
To overcome persistent redness on the epidermis, you will have to get your hands dirty.
Dip into your cooking spices, turmeric powder, and coconut oil. Pour the same amount into a previously washed and dried bowl to obtain a pasty substance.
Then spread it on the red areas of your face and let it act for 10 minutes, then rinse with clear water.
8. Cottage Cheese to Hydrate
Combined with two tablespoons of honey and a few drops of lemon juice, the cottage cheese in your refrigerator can be applied like a mask on the face. If you do not have cottage cheese, yogurt will do!
9. Butter as a Makeup Remover
Another alternative to olive oil, butter, is an excellent natural makeup remover. Cut small pieces to make “ointment butter” and apply it on a cotton pad to finish the job.
The other good news: butter has anti-wrinkle and moisturizing properties!
10. A Green Clay Mask for Dry Skin
Acting as a regulator, green clay is beneficial to dry skin. The ultimate trick: dilute the clay in powder form in olive oil and not water to avoid drying out the epidermis.
11. Egg Whites to Hydrate
Moisturizing and softening, this recipe based on egg whites and a touch of honey will hydrate your skin without the use of chemical substances. Be sure to add brewer’s yeast as it has regenerating and purifying properties.
12. The Steam Bath Opens the Pores
Say goodbye to blackheads!
Without regret, we go through the house “steam bath” box to clean the pores and free them from their excess sebum. A boiling pot placed under your face covered with a towel (to keep the steam in) will be the right compromise.
13. Cold to Tighten Pores
Cold helps tighten the face’s pores! Take an ice cube (miniature or large version), then slide it morning and evening for 20 seconds on the T zone (nose, chin, forehead) of your face.
Practical advice: Use a sizeable ice cube, which will polish and smooth after several uses and will be more practical to use!
14. Lemon to Lighten the Complexion
Squeeze the juice of half a lemon without pulp and add some mineral water. Then, soak a cotton ball in the substance, leave it on the face for 2 minutes, and rinse. In addition to guaranteeing you a peachy complexion, lemon will tighten the pores of the epidermis.
15. An Oatmeal Bath to Nourish the Skin
Ideal for dry skin, infused oatmeal in your hot bath will deeply hydrate your skin!
Pour two good handfuls of oatmeal into a (coffee) filter or a demi-bass, then close the bag and leave to infuse in a very hot bath for the magic to work.
Bonus: use the sachet as a washcloth to fully enjoy all the benefits of oat juice.
