In years past, women relied on home treatments from the ingredients found in their kitchen or gardens.
Products created from ingredients available at home have essential vitamins, minerals, nutrients and healing properties that work with your body to heal and protect the skin without any cosmetic cover ups.
The basic rule for home made care;
* Keep your recipe simple.
* Avoid ingredients that will have unpleasant side effects on your skin.
* Sterilize and dry all the equipment and containers.
* Make small batches of the product that you'd use each day.
* If you smell anything off or bad, throw out the concoction.
* Do a patch test before trying out any home made beauty recipes to avoid nasty side effects.
* Hygiene and cleanliness is all important.
* Create a facial mask at home, keeping in mind your skin type.
* Home Facial for Oily Skin
Despite its disadvantages, oily skin is a boon in the long run, as wrinkles, lines, etc., take more time to show up than they would on dry skin, making you look younger than your peers.
You still have to take proper care for oily skin, with the right skin care products.
Peppermint dissolves excess oil and gives a cool refreshing sensation to the skin.
It cleans the pores and kills bacteria that causes acne.
Use pure peppermint essential oil.
Mix 1 Tbs. milk, 1 drop of peppermint oil, 3 tsp. distilled water, 2-3 Tbs. kaolin to make a soft smooth paste.
Apply the peppermint mask on your face.
Relax and let the mask harden.
After the mask is completely tightened, gently peel and rub off the mask.
* Home Facial for Normal Skin
Having normal skin doesn't mean you should avoid taking care of it.
Cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin daily so your skin will stay natural looking and healthy for years to come.
* Peppermint and Lavender oil facial mask
To relieve yourself from tensions and headache, a peppermint and lavender duo comes in handy.
This facial mask relaxes the facial muscles.
Mix 1 tsp. jojoba or any carrier oil in a bowl with 1 drop of peppermint and lavender essential oils.
Add 3 tsp. distilled water, 2-3 Tbs. kaolin to a smooth spreadable paste.
Apply the natural face mask.
Relax, have a cup of green tea and wait for the mask to dry.
Peel off solid pieces of hardened mask and use plenty of water to cleanse your face from the rest of the mask.
* Home Facial for Dry Skin
The honey and banana combo makes a good facial for dry skin.
Honey leaves the skin hydrated with its hydrating properties and bananas with hordes of vitamins, calcium and other essential nutrients keep the skin smooth and soft.
The bananas should not be over ripe.
Mash 1 small banana.
Add 1 tsp. of honey to it and mix well.
Apply this on your face and leave it on for 10-15 minutes.
Wash off with lots of water afterwards.
Avoid using if you are allergic to something.
