As I have gotten older, I find myself leaning towards more natural and DIY skin care products for cleansing, toning and even as a mask. I tried a few different ones. Here are two of my favourite ingredients you probably can find in your kitchen and pantry.
Avocado facial masks are one of the best facial masks out there. They are nourishing and revitalizing. This DIY mask is skin-friendly as it’s packed with minerals such as iron, calcium, potassium, copper, magnesium, vitamins such as A ,E , B, K and unsaturated fats.
1) Great for dry and acne prone skin
2) Promotes elasticity
3) Very anti-ageing
5) Restores your skin PH balance
What you would need includes:
1 full ripe avocado and mash that up.
Depending on your skin type, if you need extra moisture add ½ to 1 tsp of manuka honey into the mixture.
Use your fingers or a special brush to apply the mask all over your face. Do cleanse your face prior to application.
Leave the mixture on for 10-15 mins.
Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.
The second ingredient I have been using quite often lately is Manuka honey!
Honey has so many benefits and one of them includes it being excellent skin care.
I personally recommend to use it as a facial cleanser. It provides your skin with moisture that it needs and is so soothing to your skin because of its antibacterial properties and if you have sensitive skin, this is one of the best natural skin care alternatives to use as it is very healing.
Manuka Honey removes all impurities without stripping skin’s natural oils hence keeping your skin soft and supple and also does improve and refine skin texture because of its natural enzymes.
Use one to two times a day. Remove your makeup, use ½ tsp of honey and apply it to your face using fingers.
Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
I always follow up with two drops of Astarism after to restore hydration and also it boosts my skin’s base conditions for skincare and makeup application if needed.
I hope this quick skin care tips will help if you are looking for more natural products to take care of your skin!
Of course it is not only what you put on the outside that matters but what you do ingest also does make a difference. So take care of you and be happy, stay healthy and love yourself!
Till next time.
