Every woman tries to take care of herself and her skin, but some brand name cosmetics can cost a fortune. Another problem is that most of them contain many chemicals that you wouldn’t want to put on your skin. Even products labeled as natural can also contain harsh ingredients.
That’s when the natural skin care tips come in handy. You can make your own products right at home at a fraction of the cost. Read on to learn why it’s a good idea to have some beer at home even if you don’t drink.
Sunburned skin, for example, can be soothed by a mixture of a half cup of pureed strawberries combined with two tablespoons of natural yogurt, while a mixture of peppermint leaves and vinegar helps relieve sweating, according to Busch.
‘You put a cup of fresh mint leaves into a closable container and fill it with vinegar,’ she said describing the mixture for relieving sweating. ‘Filter it after letting it stand for two days and pour it into a brown medicine bottle. This ensures the vinegar will keep.’
Swab it on sweaty skin right out of the bottle or put it in a spray bottle for quick and simple relief away from home, said Busch, who believes everything required for maintaining beautiful hair and skin can be found in the garden and the refrigerator.
‘I have normal facial creams and body lotions in my bathroom at home because you can’t always find time to make natural products,’ said Busch. ‘But my basic facial and body skin–care products are taken from nature.’ Homemade skin- and hair-care products, however, don’t have a long shelf life and should therefore be made only in small amounts and stored in a cold place.
There is a vegetable that’s very helpful when it comes to natural skin care. That’s a cucumber. It not only tastes good, but it’s also great for your skin. Just apply several slices to your face and leave on for about 15-20 minutes. It will tighten your pores and make your skin very smooth. Of course you can always eat it and provide your body with many nutrients.
