We all want to find remedies to all our ails, and it seems like there’s something for everything. For instance, you might look to Healthy Heroics for answers on losing weight. What about when it comes to skin problems? Luckily, you don’t have to stress. Here are 5 remedies for rejuvenated skin that you can make in your own home – no harsh chemicals needed!
1. Coconut Oil
The first remedy on our list is for dry or dull skin, and it’s rather simple because all you need is coconut oil. You can find coconut oil almost anywhere, but if all else fails, it can be found online typically for a rather low price.
First, you’ll want to warm up the coconut oil a little bit. You don’t want the oil to be too hot, or it will be uncomfortable or even damage your skin rather than helping. Just make sure it’s a little warm. Then, apply it to your face and neck by massaging it in small circles. After that, all you have to do is go to bed and leave it on overnight. This remedy can be used every night for consistent glowing skin.
This works because coconut oil is great at locking in moisture. At the same time, it’s full of essential fatty acids that nourish your skin at the same time. To complete its usefulness in helping your skin glow, it has plenty of antioxidants as well.
2. Baking Soda
Most people have baking soda floating around the house somewhere. This baking soda isn’t just useful for cleaning, though, because it can also help you keep your skin clear and gorgeous.
You won’t want to use baking soda on its own. Not only is this not the most effective method, but it’s also difficult to apply baking soda to your face on its own. Instead, mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and a ½ teaspoon of honey in a bowl.
This mixture can then be applied to your face – once again, in circular motions – and left on for 10 minutes. After that, just rinse it off with cool water and continue your moisturizing routine as normal.
Baking soda works so well because it exfoliates, removing dead skin, and works to neutralize skin’s pH. You can do this once a week to keep your skin healthy.
We mentioned earlier that you should mix your baking soda with honey. However, we neglected to mention that honey is more than just a binding agent in that mixture. Honey is a great choice to achieve soft and glowing skin whether you struggle with dry skin or combination skin.
The best choice to get the most out of this remedy is to use organic raw honey since none of its natural properties have been processed out. Don’t worry about it being a hassle, though, because it’s still relatively easy to find.
You don’t need to mix this with anything either, so you don’t need to worry about any prep time. Simply apply about a teaspoon of the honey to your face and leave it on for around 10 minutes. Then, just wash it off and pat your skin dry. This remedy is to be used daily for the best results.
4. Green Tea
Green tea is a powerhouse when it comes to rejuvenating skin. Not only does it give your skin a healthy glow, but it also helps with signs of aging as well. This is because green tea is full of flavonoids which help promote collagen production. To put this in simpler terms, it keeps your skin elastic, preventing and reversing signs of aging such as wrinkles.
To use green tea, start by boiling the green tea in a pot of about a cup of water until you notice the water taking on the tea’s hue. At that point, transfer about two teaspoons to a separate container. In this container, add in an equal amount of brown sugar and a teaspoon of cream.
Take this face mask that you’ve made and, once again, apply it gently in circular motions to your face. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse your face with cold water and pat it dry. Only do this routine once or twice a week.
The final remedy on our list is one of the most timeless ones alongside the use of honey. Milk is great at nourishing and moisturizing skin. There are even tales of royalty like Cleopatra using these remedies to stay young and attractive.
To get the most out of both of these ingredients, mix about a teaspoon of honey with two teaspoons of milk. Add in about a teaspoon of gram flour to make a paste. Apply this paste to your face and leave it for 20 minutes. If it isn’t quite dry at 20 minutes, leave it on just a little longer. Rinse it off with warm water when done. Do this twice weekly to achieve the best result.
