To avoid things like these, you can try some of these tips that include homemade remedies for organic skincare. Read on to know more.
DIY solutions to freshen your skin
There are several ways to freshen up your skin using ingredients found easily at home. Here are some of them:
Just use plain rose water. You could either use cotton to dab it on your skin or transfer the rose water to a spray bottle and spray it on your face when you need it. You could also add a tablespoon of lemon juice to this, but if you have sensitive skin, it is best to avoid it.
Tired-looking skin is can be brought back to life by brewing a strong pot chamomile tea. Only you’re not going to be drinking it. Use about 1.5 cups of water with 1 teabag. Allow it to cool and pour it into an ice tray and freeze the tea. Ensure to wrap the tea cubes in a thin cloth and apply them on pimples and all over your face. This is also a great solution for puffy eyes, sunburnt skin, and irritated skin. You could also add cucumber pulp or aloe vera gel (naturally removed and not store-bought) to this concoction.
Face masks for organic skincare
Some of the best face masks are available in their raw form in your very own kitchen! All you have to do is know how to use them.
One of the best combinations that has worked wonders on any kind of skin is a blend of turmeric powder and sandalwood powder. You could use either honey/water/ rose water to make a thick paste of it. Apply this on the face and allow it to naturally dry. Ensure to use only warm water to wash the face.
Another great tip for organic skincare would be the use of oats and avocado. The former has moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties while the latter has hydrating and other nourishing content, which naturally occurs in Vitamin A and E. In a bowl, blend together 1/2 cup of uncooked oats and 1/2 cup of avocado. Use yogurt as the binding agent in order to blend them into a paste. Yogurt has nutrients and enzymes that reduce not just inflammation but also maintains the pH level of your skin. Leave it on your face for about 30 minutes and remove it with a washcloth.
