Healthy Glowing Skin – At Home Tips

 

There are many products on the market that claim to have the answer to healthy skin.  The majority of these products contain many harmful chemicals and others are too expensive for the average person to afford.

 

Fortunately, creating healthy skin doesn’t require the help of commercially marketed products. There are many at-home tips and tricks available to get the desired results from your skin.

 

You may be pleasantly surprised at how easy, effective, and inexpensive some of these tips are.  When you save money, then you can justify buying organic food to improve your skin from the inside out.  I just had to slide that in since our diet plays such a major part in how our skin looks.

Try these tips for healthy glowing skin the easy, at-home way:

 

Create natural masks – There are many elements in nature that can help give your skin the healthy look you want. Some of those items may already be in your kitchen or garden! If you want healthy, glowing skin, here are some ideas for making natural facial masks:

 

  • Prepare regular oatmeal (not instant – preferably organic), let it cool, and then apply it to your face for about 30 minutes. Once you rinse it off and dry your face, you’ll instantly feel the benefits of the exfoliating properties of natural oatmeal.

 

  • Crack open an egg, discard the yolk, and briskly beat the white until just before it forms soft peaks. Then, apply it to your face for 30-45 minutes. While it’s on your skin, you’ll feel your skin start to tighten.  When finished, spritz the egg white with water and remove with cool water  on a cotton ball. Using an egg mask once a week will give you healthier looking skin and is wonderful for crow’s feet.

 

  • Raw Aloe Vera is another great option for creating a homemade mask. Simply rub the gel onto your face and let it stand for about half an hour.   Aloe Vera is good at removing blemishes and cleansing the skin of impurities.


Use a daily facial wash – A daily face wash made from 1/2-cup cold milk (yogurt if your skin is dry), 1 tablespoon of salt, and 2 tablespoons of witch hazel will ensure your face is moisturized and cleansed of bacteria, grease, and impurities that can contribute to unhealthy skin, pimples and blemishes.

 

Puffy Baggy Eye Treatment – Most of us have heard that cucumbers help those puffy eyes.  Several thin slices over each eye while you are lying down relaxing can make a major difference in your appearance.  But did you know that raw potato skins (preferably organic) help tighten puffy baggy eyes also?  Try it!  Do the same as with the cucumbers and rejuvenate your eyes!

 

Lip Wrinkles – Mash up 1/4 cup of papaya and generously apply to lips and surrounding areas or use 1/4 cup of papaya juice and apply with cotton balls. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse with cool water.

 

Use clean linens – Your hygiene habits can determine how healthy your facial skin will become. It’s important to always use clean linens. Face cloths and pillowcases that are exposed to your skin need to be free of bacteria so the germs aren’t transferred to the face.  It’s beneficial to change pillowcases and face cloths at least twice a week.

 

These are easy tips that can give you the skin you want without breaking the bank.  And you just may see results faster than with products found on the market, and you will be avoiding dangerous chemicals!  Try these techniques today and enjoy that healthy, glowing skin you’ve been seeking.
