There are plenty of natural skincare ingredients you probably have at home right now or can find in your favorite products that will help you get better looking skin in no time!
Coconut oil is in a lot of beauty products. It can be applied neat to the skin too, as long as you aren’t allergic. It can be used to safely remove makeup, including stubborn waterproof mascara. When used as a moisturizer, leave it to soak for a few minutes before washing it off with your normal cleanser. This will have you on your way to better looking skin in minutes!
Aloe vera isn’t just for burns, although it is excellent at soothing mild burns when squeezed direct from the plant. As long you don’t have an aloe vera allergy, it can revive tired-looking skin at any time of the day. Use it after washing for that skin glow factor. It’s also great for eczema and dry skin patches. You can find aloe in a variety of natural skin care products like Zum Bar goat’s milk soap. If you want better looking skin, aloe vera is the way to go.
Seems water is the remedy for everything, right?! The body is 60 percent water. So if you want better looking skin, it only makes sense to keep it hydrated by drinking water. As well as keeping your inner organs happy, this keeps the largest organ of them all happy. And it shows. Someone who isn’t drinking enough water is going to dehydrate. One of the first places this shows is on the lips, when they become chapped. Dry skin is much more likely to crack and show age.
You are what you eat. A poor diet is going to hurt more than just your insides. If you want better looking skin, you need to think about what you put in your mouth. Skin loves leafy green vegetables, berries, orange and yellow fruits and vegetables, nuts and fatty fish. It doesn’t love pizza. There’s a reason that kid covered in zits was called pizza face way back in high school. Diet-related outbreaks aren’t just for teens.
Don’t bathe in Dante’s Inferno
Hot water can open pores, but after that, turn down the temperature. Once the lobster look fades from excessive heat, the skin is left looking tired and dull from the hot water striping away the natural oils. Cooling down the water after the initial fire can improve circulation. Good circulation isn’t only for fingers and toes, it can help you get better looking skin that appears younger and firmer.
The world seems to be against that spa glow with hormones, fast food, stress and other variables teaming up to make your skin look tired and aged. Unlike wine, skin doesn’t get better with age. Some simple changes can provide glowing skin until you can next make it to the spa.
When applying anything to the skin for the first time, patch test like you would with hair dye. A drop on the inside elbow for 24 hours. No reaction equals no current allergy.
