Natural Skin Care Essentials
Ever since ancient times, women have taken care of their bodies and had their own skin care routines. Certainly, beauty products have evolved and, in spite of that, women still stick to the organic and natural skin care products. So, we’ve singled out a couple of natural go-to essentials you might want to try.
Channel your inner Cleopatra
For the ultimate glowing skin, dare to use some old tricks that one of the best-known women in history adored. It’s no secret that Cleopatra loved to take baths in donkey milk in order to preserve her youth and beauty. It is believed that milk rejuvenates the skin and gives it a healthy radiance. The Egyptian goddess also liked to rinse her face with apple cider vinegar, and she used the luxurious combination of milk and honey as a facial mask. Milk and honey are beneficial in many ways, since they contain antibacterial properties that hydrate and clean impurities. Honey serves to moisturize the skin, while milk exfoliates it. You can easily make a DIY mask by mixing these two ingredients, and applying it on dry areas. Rinse after ten minutes, and repeat this royal treatment a few times a week. Also, honey seems to be an excellent choice for healing your flaky lips. Before you go to bed, coat your lips with a light layer of honey and you’ll wake up with softer and more kissable lips.
Rose water- yes, please!
As romantic as it sounds, it’s made from water and rose petals. This magical beauty potion has gained popularity among many women today, and it can be used regularly as a face cleanser. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, rose water reduces the skin irritations and shrinks the clogged pores. Also, there’s a rose water toner you could use after removing your makeup, which will leave your skin perfectly smooth and refreshed.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, can I eat ’em all?
What’s more beautiful than the beauty itself? An edible beauty in the form of different food for glowing skin. That’s right, you’ve heard well. The newest trend of healthy treats with beauty benefits has emerged, and we are happy to share the good news. Finally, we can eat raw chocolate without feeling guilty, and plus it’s vegan and it keeps our skin healthy. You could also include certain puddings and mousses in your diet, as they leave your skin hydrated and soft. I think I’ve found my latest obsession, how about you?
Cocoa & Shea Butter body lotion
Regardless the season, you must always nourish your skin to keep it safe from losing elasticity and firmness. There are plenty of softening lotions that deserve a spotlight, but this one’s a real gem. It moisturizes the damaged skin, and it should be included as a part of your daily routine. It’s also good for the body parts we like to neglect like elbows, knees and heels. It smoothens and nourishes even the driest parts and it smells amazing, too.
Fruit infused water
I guess we don’t have to tell you how hydration is important for your entire body. If you’re not hydrated enough, your whole body suffers. It happens very often that people forget to drink water over the day, or even worse, they drink it only when they’re thirsty. To make drinking water fun and tasty, you can jam pack your favorite juicy fruit combinations in a glass bottle, and enjoy your flavored water.
Bentonite clay does wonders
Regardless of your skin type, you could use a bentonite clay mask as a part of your daily beauty regime. Make a mask by mixing one teaspoon of water and one teaspoon of clay to get a thick paste. Optionally, add a drop of an apple cider vinegar and mix it altogether. Apply the mask on your face and neck, avoiding the under eye area. Wait for 30 minutes, rinse it with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel. Repeat this process 3 times a week and you’ll notice how your skin gets smoother and fresh.
Remaining young and fresh is what every woman today dreams of, and with these natural products be sure you could prolong your beauty and health in the easiest way possible.
