When it comes to skin care, sometimes you want to go the natural way and avoid all the creams and gels and treatments. Here are a few http://mediluxe.ca/ plant-based solutions you may not have thought of (but will certainly never forget):
AVOCADO HONEY MOISTURIZER
No matter what your specific skin needs is concerns may be, a good moisturizer is a definite must. Moisturizers help your skin to retain moisture, of course, which prevents drying out; filling in dermal gaps that would otherwise form wrinkles. Fortunately, you can make your own moisturizer at home with some avocado and a little honey.
Simply mix some milk or cream with avocado and honey (roughly 3:2:3 Tbsp) in a blender and puree until smooth. You can apply this to the skin and leave on for several hours or overnight to improve your skin. Just rinse with warm water when it is time to remove it.
Not just any fruit salad will do if you want to maximize the anti-aging power of fruits. You do have to know which fruits to use, though. You want to use the fruits that offer the most antioxidant power. Basically, you want to take about a half cup each of fresh blueberries, fresh strawberries, orange juice, kiwi, and chopped pomegranate seeds and chopped walnuts (all high in vitamin E) and mix in a bowl. For added health benefits, you can add some dark leafy greens like kale and spinach to make it a little more like a traditional salad (and add more B-vitamins, fiber, calcium, and vitamin D).
AT-HOME ACNE SPOT TREATMENT
Sometimes you need more than your everyday cleaners and routine; you need to get rid of that stubborn blackhead as soon as possible. Well, if you have a lemon and some brewer’s yeast you can do it without medical/cosmetic creams. You can make an acute breakout paste with a little brewer’s yeast and a squeeze of lemon and just a few drops of water. That’s it: apply to the blemish like a salve and cover with a bandage for at least 10 minutes.
Basil leaf has antiseptic and anti-aging properties so why not use it on your skin? Take about 3 Tbsp dried basil leaves and mix them into 1 cup boiling water. Once this cools, strain out the leaves, of course, ans put the steeped solution into a spray bottle to spritz on your skin; you can also just put it in a container and use cotton balls like an astringent. But make sure you do this as a precursor to a cleansing strategy, not to replace it.
