Your hectic daily lifestyle can affect your daily skincare routine to a great extent. Many just don’t take the time they need for basic skincare, but years of neglect will slowly appear. Hence, you should make time for treating your skin so that it retains that youthful glow and remains soft and supple for years to come. Daily routines don’t have to be a chore, but they do require a little discipline if you want to take proper care of your skin. Skin can be affected by internal as well as external factors.
If we are considering external reasons, one of the biggest is over exposure to sunlight. Others include pollution, smoking, drinking, and poor diet. Clear, clean skin demands a balanced diet and a good digestive system to ensure your skin can process toxins effectively and keep acne eruptions and blemishes at bay. Choose suitable cosmetics and soaps that will suit your skin type. Include as many raw vegetables and fruits in your diet as you can to stay healthy. If you follow these good habits, you will definitely see a significant difference in the texture and quality of your skin.
You can also treat your skin externally by whipping up some homemade face packs and masks. A mix of milk and honey will keep your skin clean, soft and supple by introducing natural anti-microbials, and natural skin- softening agents found in lactic acid. Another way to keep your skin healthy and glowing is by reducing blotches and age spots with a mix of honey and egg white.
For oily skin try combing cocoa (1/3 cup), heavy cream (3 teaspoons), honey (1/4 cup), ripe papaya (1/3 cup) and oatmeal powder (3 teaspoons). It might be tempting to eat the mixture it smells SO good, but save it for your skin! After you put this mixture on your face let it dry for 10-15 minutes and rinse with warm water. This is very effective for individuals who have oily skin.
For a great, effective homemade cleanser mix milk with cucumber juice. Use a natural oil like jojoba or almond oil to remove stubborn eye makeup.
Stay natural, stay beautiful!
