Oftentimes the best things for beautiful, healthy skin can’t be created in a lab. Reveal your inner glow by incorporating some of these natural wonders into your skincare regimen.
Vitamin E Oil – From reducing scars to diminishing fine lines, vitamin e oil is a true wonder for the skin. It helps prevents water loss and blocks free radicals from the body to help slow down the aging process. Make you own homemade eye cream by combining one teaspoon of vitamin E oil with one tablespoon of coconut oil. Use at night for best results.
Coconut Oil – So much more than a great butter substitute, coconut oil is an excellent smoother and won’t irritate those with sensitive skin. Just remember that it’s slightly comedogenic, meaning if you’re prone to breakouts, do not use it on your face! If you have more normal to dry skin than go for it! Start with baby steps, such as using a dollop as a natural eye make-up remover.
Honey – Honey’s chemical properties can speed up healing, prevent infection and lock in moisture for those with dry skin. Blend one apple with one tablespoon of honey to form a thick paste. Apply to skin, leave on for fifteen minutes and rinse. It will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and supple.
Baking Soda – Minimize the appearance of those pesky pores on your face. Take two tablespoons of baking soda and add small amounts of water until a paste forms. Massage the paste onto your skin for two minutes while in the shower to reveal a healthy glow!
Jojoba Oil – This skin nourishing oil (it’s actually a wax) has a molecular structure similar to sebum, the oil your face produces naturally, which is why jojoba oil is perfect for oily and acne-prone skin. For a gentle cleanser combine six ounces of castile soap and distilled water with one tablespoon of jojoba oil. Add six drops of tea tree essential oil. Perfect for acne and blackheads and it won’t dry out your skin!
