One of the basic principles behind all natural skin care is that your skin is an incredibly absorbent organ, and that you shouldnt put anything on your body that you wouldnt want in your body. Therefore, you really shouldnt use any natural skin care products that you wouldnt be willing to eat! There are some really excellent all natural skin care products available for purchase, and this might be the best solution for you. But you also might try your hand at making some natural skin care recipes yourself. By doing this you can save a little money, learn a new skill, and be guaranteed a super natural, wholesome product since you personally know every ingredient that goes into your natural skin care recipes.
Many skin care recipes can be made from ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge or pantry. Here are three great natural skin care recipes to try.
Did you know that oatmeal can help clear clogged pores? And that onion can help heal scars from acne? To take advantage of the healing powers of these natural ingredients, try this recipe. First, let three tablespoons of plain oatmeal steep in one ounce of boiling water for five minutes. Second, peel one medium size onion, and grind it in the food processor until it becomes a smooth puree. Add the onion puree to the warm oatmeal. Test out this mask on your face. If it has a consistency that will stay on your face then it is ready to use. If not, add some green clay or some honey to thicken the mask. This quantity will make enough for eight applications, and should stay fresh for up to a week in the fridge.
Another great recipe to try requires only honey, lemon juice, plain yogurt and an egg white. For this mask, combine two tablespoons of honey, three teaspoons of plain yogurt, four teaspoons of lemon juice and one egg white in a small bowl and whisk until the mixture thickens. Immediately apply it to your clean and dry face and leave it on for fifteen minutes. After fifteen minutes wash the mask off with warm water, and gently pat dry. The benefits of this recipe are that lemon and yogurt can help fade acne scars while protein from the egg white helps prevent future damage to the skin. Honey has antibacterial properties that soothe your facial skin.
The final of the three all natural skin care recipes
takes aspirin and apple cider vinegar. You might never have thought of aspirin as an ingredient in natural organic skin care
, but its true that aspirin combined with apple cider vinegar can act as a toner to smooth skin and help clear up scars from acne. To take advantage of these benefits, mix half an ounce of organic cider vinegar with three ounces of mineral water and five regular aspirin tablets, crushed. You can crush aspirin tablets using a mortar and pestle, or by placing in a plastic zip bag and crushing with a rolling pin or other heavy implement. Apply this toner to your skin with a cotton ball.
