Every woman desires to look and feel beautiful, but lotions, creams, and other commercial products can be harsh on the skin as well as on the wallet. They are not only expensive, but can also expose you to different kinds of chemicals that can cause faster aging.
The good news is you don’t have to rely on these commercial products. In fact, you can get the same benefits by heading to the grocery store or to your kitchen – but this time, without chemicals, side effects, and putting a dent on your budget.
Next time you write your shopping list, add the following to your beauty arsenal:
#1: Yogurt, Orange, and Sugar
If you have dull and oily skin, just get some yogurt (iced yogurt works best) and mix it with sugar and half an orange. Scrub all over your face until you feel the yogurt has melted completely. Just wash your face with ice cold water and you will instantly notice the difference.
#2: Papaya, Oats, and Honey
Meanwhile, if you have dry, dull, and tired-looking skin, rejuvenate with a mix of these ingredients. Add cold milk if you like and start scrubbing onto your skin. Just wash it off and do this daily to become younger-looking.
#3: Honey and Egg White
First, wash your face with cold water and spread a teaspoon of honey on it. While the honey sits on your face, get the white egg and apply onto your face. Rub some ice all over your face and let the whole mixture dry. Wash your face with cold water and this can give you instant facelift.
Buy some cucumbers and just slice them thinly. You can also juice them and apply onto your face. Leave it on for at least 10 minutes. Doing so can help tone your face. You can also eat cucumbers to obtain a lot of benefits.
#5: Skim Milk
Instead of using cold cream on your face, use skim milk to wash your face. What’s good about this ingredient is that you can use it no matter what your skin type is – and even if you’re lactose intolerant. Another use of skim milk is for exfoliating your skin. Have softer skin by adding powdered skim milk to your bath water.
Aside from applying the ingredients above onto your skin, you can also eat healthy foods to make you look beautiful inside and out. Tomatoes, green tea, avocados, and salmon are some of the best foods that can help make your skin younger-looking and smoother.
