I noticed that lately natural cosmetics is very popular. A peak of relevance for many women – this is exactly the cosmetics that is prepared directly at home with their own hands from natural and affordable ingredients.
In such cosmetics there is an essential and undeniable plus: it is without preservatives and chemical additives, which can not be said about store cosmetics in tubes. If you, like me, want to save time and money without buying products in the store, try my homemade cosmetics recipes. So, let’s start!
As we all know, skin requires complete care of itself. This means that care should be gradual and logical. It all starts with purification. I just wash my face with water. Someone prefers to clean the skin with soap. But after all, soap, no matter how good it is, dries the skin, and this leads to its early fading and aging.
I made this mask: yogurt mixed with olive oil and a few drops of lemon juice. In principle, oil can be used differently, and instead of yoghurt it is allowed to take kefir. You know, I’m just using kefir now. I do a light massage and wipe the kefir with a wet towel for the face.
Do you like porridge? Personally, I – no. And I prepare it exclusively in order to use it as a cosmetic. Therefore, I add 1 hour L. of natural honey and favorite olive oil to cooked and cooled oatmeal. With the resulting scrub, I rub my face with soft movements.
Honey perfectly nourishes and softens the skin. Oatmeal has the same properties, it perfectly cleanses the skin. Therefore, the resulting scrub is not inferior to the expensive counterpart in the store. I don’t like the taste of oatmeal, but I am delighted with the smell of such a scrub! He is barely perceptible and not intrusive.
This newfangled word is very popular and just became necessary for all women. Lifting helps tighten the skin and make it elastic. As a home lifting, I decided to try the following mix. This is 2 tbsp. l natural yogurt (or kefir) with 1 tbsp. l lemon juice.
I apply this mixture with a cotton swab or brush on the face and neck for about 25-30 minutes. The tool must be absorbed into the skin and have time to act. I believe that half an hour is enough for this. Then I just wash it off with warm water. They say that a contrast shower is very good for the skin of the face. I tried it – very cool, especially for a full awakening.
The overall tone of the face is usually leveled with a tonal tool. I decided to use tea as a toner. Tried black long leaf and green teas. I’ll tell you what. If you aspire to a more tanned skin type, and a dark shade to you to face – you can brew black tea. If you prefer a light tan, use green tea.
The skin always needs moisturizing! If it is not moist enough, it becomes dry and flabby. This skin will fade faster, it looks exhausted and dull. So I decided not to wipe my face with a towel until the end. And pay more attention to moisture. Ask what you should do for this?
Moisturizing must be from the inside. It is necessary to consume enough water. This is 2-2.5 liters of water per day. And, as I told you earlier, it is better to use melt water. Wipe face during the day can be natural tonics. This may be a decoction of dill seeds, chamomile, calendula.
