Home Remedies For Your Skin

There are several skin care items you can make yourself with items you can find in your own pantry or medicine cabinet! It’s easy to care for your skin with these simple, natural recipes. Here are a few to get you started.

Soothing Tea Face Mask

Boil a cup of water with two organic tea bags, a sprig of mint, and a sprig of rosemary. Chop the mint and rosemary before brewing if desired. Let it boil for 5 minutes, then take it off the heat and leave to cool. Strain the cooled tea and soak strips of gauze or cheesecloth in it. Lay the soaked strips on your face, avoiding the eyes, and wait for them to dry. Then wash your face with cool water. This mask cools and tightens your skin and soothes redness. Refrigerate the mixture and reuse it later (use clean cloths to avoid contaminating the mask by double-dipping).

Almond Olive Oil Scrub

To make an exfoliating facial scrub, process a handful of blanched almonds until they are a fine meal. Sift out any large pieces or chunks and mix with olive oil to make a thick paste. You can scent the paste with a few drops of essential oil if desired. Use this to gently scrub the skin and rinse off with lukewarm water. The olive and almond oils will nourish and moisturize your skin while removing dead skin cells.

Oatmeal Milk Mask

Use a food processor to grind oatmeal into a very fine powder. To make one application of face mask, mix two tablespoons of oat powder with a teaspoon of honey and enough milk to make a smooth, spreadable paste. Spread the paste over your face immediately. Let the mask stay on your face for about 30 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water. This oatmeal honey mask contains proteins, oils, and the concentrated nutrients found in honey and oats. The mask will moisturize and soften skin and soothe irritation. As with any face product that features solid ingredients, keep this well away from the eyes.

Yogurt and Lemon Cleansing Treatment

To release blackheads and generally remove residues from your skin, mix a tablespoon of lemon juice with a quarter-cup of yogurt. Massage it into your skin with your fingertips and wash off with lukewarm water. The gentle acidity of the lemon and yogurt help remove toxins and dead skin cells while the milk proteins and vitamin C soothe and nourish the underlying skin, leaving you with a bright and healthy glow.
