Flawless looking skin has always been a target for men as well as women, as nothing can compare to the beauty and softness of healthy, radiant skin. Whether you’re born with flawless skin or you want to achieve that eye catching perfection, you have to offer your skin nourishment and care from early to old age. This pursuit for fabulous skin has lead to the development of a myriad of natural remedies, which have been passed on from generation to generation.
Nature provides everything our body and skin needs in order to maintain health, so no wonder these natural methods are in higher demand. Natural treatments don’t contain those chemical ingredients manufactured skin care treatments offer, so people are leaning more and more towards basic elements for health issues and skin care. Choosing right is definitely not easy as there are a variety of natural ingredients out there, this is why we have selected some natural treatments that can do your skin good:
Parsley juice Parsley is not only delicious when added to your meal, but parsley juice can also help stabilize melanin production and help give the skin a uniform coloration. Natural parsley juice mixed with equal parts of lemon juice, orange juice and black currant, can be a perfect mix which you can use to visibly reduce the appearance of freckles and other pigmented spots on the skin. Apply the mixture using a cotton pad on your complexion and then apply your regular face cream.
Thyme infusion Thyme is known for its purifying properties, so don’t use it only as a spice for your food, but as an aid in your skin care routine. A thyme infusion can help destroy bacteria which can cause acne and other skin problems, so purify your skin using thyme.
Oils Natural oils have been used in skin care and aromatherapy for centuries, so no wonder people are still using them for different purposes. They are inexpensive compared to high quality cosmetic products, so try to cleanse and purify your skin using almond oil instead. This is a perfect aid for mature skin, so apply a thin layer on your skin and let it act for one minute before removing it, using a clean damp wash cloth or a natural sponge.
Aloe Aloe is a perfect aid for a variety of skin problems and there are a variety of products which promote the benefits of aloe. Use aloe’s calming properties to sooth itching skin, deal with skin rashes and sunburn. You can apply aloe on the skin directly from the plant or use natural products which contain aloe.
Apricots Apricots are a fabulous source of beta-carotene, folic acid and iron, all contributors to perfect looking skin. These ingredients can help protect the skin against free radicals, toxins and ingredients in cosmetics, thus contributing to the skin’s health. Turn to apricot facial masks and make them a part of your diet as well your skin care rutine for a flawless looking complexion.
Cucumber Cucumber juice is a perfect aid for skin imperfections as it contains ingredients which refresh and maintain the skin hydrated. Use cucumber juice to diminish the appearance of red skin and puffy eyes.
