Want Natural Glowing Skin?
Here's some great tips to use the healing powers of nature and support your body’s innate healing capacities for Naturally Glowing Skin!
Cleanse Your Skin With Almond Oil
Switch from bar to liquid soap that doesn’t lather. Instead of stripping your skin with foamy cleansers, nourish your skin while you cleanse for a healthy clean glow. You can use oils such as argan and almond oil to cleanse the skin naturally or use a natural cleanser.
Brighten Skin By Using Green Tea as a Toner
White and green teas applied topically on the skin have anti-inflammatory, brightening, evening, cleansing and hydrating properties. They’re ideal for using as a skin brightening tea toner. You can make a tea toner with one or both of these teas by steeping the teas for 5 minutes, allowing them to cool to room temperature. Then, either pat onto your face, apply with cotton pads or pour into a spray bottle and spritz onto clean skin.
Use Tea Bags To Soothe Puffy Eyes
Briefly steep 2 green, black, or chamomile tea bags in hot water for less than a minute. Then remove the tea bags from the water and chill in a small bowl in the refrigerator. Once chilled, place 1 bag over each closed eyelid. Leave on your lids for 5 to 15 minutes
Want Clear Pores?
Combine the healing, clarifying, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial effects of honey with pore cleansing and sebum balancing effects of turmeric and pH enhancing and lactic acid effects of yogurt into this pore cleanser.
1 Tablespoon plain yogurt
1 Tablespoon raw honey
1 Teaspoon turmeric powder
Mix into a paste.
Apply to face and neck and leave for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then wash with cool water, pat your skin dry and apply your favourite serum or moisturizer.
Hydrate Dry Skin
Start your morning with a glass of fresh unsweetened coconut water or add it to your morning shake. Throughout the day, drink filtered water. At meals include skin-hydrating foods such as wild salmon, avocado, olives, and coconut.
Treat Blemishes With Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is well-known for its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, and research shows it can help reduce mild to moderate acne breakouts. Be sure to use diluted tree oil because the undiluted variety can burn and irritate skin when applied directly. Just add 1 to 2 drops to a single application of your cleanser, serum or moisturizer. You want about a 5% dilution, which means 5 drops of tea tree oil per 1 teaspoon of carrier oil or cream. You can apply this 2 – 3 times daily.
Moisturize With Aloe
One of the great things about this plant is its natural components. It has almost 20 amino acids; minerals like calcium, magnesium and sodium; enzymes; polysaccharides; and more—all helpful components in producing young looking, beautiful skin. It penetrates quickly and deeply, moisturizing at the lower levels of skin and nourishing with natural enzymes and amino acids. These properties also make aloe a great ally in reducing the visible effects of aging. Aloe has long been used as a moisturizer, and recent studies suggest it may help reduce skin dryness. Because it's moisturizing but not greasy, it's perfect even for those with oily, combination, or sensitive skin.
