My Affordable And All Natural Skin Care Routine
Since I work from home I wash my face once a day, every morning unless I spend the day out or put makeup then I wash it twice . I also like to vary my skin care.
Option 1: Raw Honey. It is naturally antibacterial, so it’s great for acne. It’s also full of antioxidants and highly moisturizing and soothing.
Option 2: DIY honey and tea tree oil face cleanser. Mix 1 tps of honey with 4-5 drops of tea tree oil, also known as Melaleuca. Apply on face and leave it for 1 minute then rinse with warm then cold water.
Toning is as important as any other part of the cleansing process especially for the oily skin. It helps remove oil and traces of dirt. Also, it hydrates the skin while restoring its pH balance.The following 3 are my absolute favorite natural face toners:
Orange blossom water: It soothes redness and relaxes the nerves, and makes skin soft and smooth.
Apple Cider Vinegar: It helps restore and balance the natural pH levels of the skin and reduce acne scars appearance.
Rose Water : It aids reduce the redness of irritated skin, moisturizes, and controls excess oil.
Ice cubes have many great benefits on the skin such as: refreshing the face, fight acne and the formation of wrinkles etc.
I use the Aloe Vera Gel from Forever Living because of their stabilization process which means their Aloe gel is as good as getting it directly from the leaf. The Aloe vera gel is great to moisturize, soothe, and condition.
I exfoliate my skin about twice a week. I either use oatmeal soap or Forever Aloe scrub (which is also a body scrub)
For my face mask, I combine two ingredients with infinite benefits and phenomenal results: TURMERIC and ALOE VERA GEL. Seriously,this mask is all you need to get rid of acne, have a clean and glowing skin, reduce redness and inflammations, Tighten your pores, reduce facial hair (Oh! Yes), brighten Skin, and the list goes on…
How to do it:
Step 1: Use any of the cleansing options above to wash your face. I also like to have my face mask the same day I exfoliate.
Step 2: Mix 1tbsp of turmeric powder with 2tbsp of Aloe vera gelly until the paste is creamy. Apply on face and neck. keep it for 30 mn. rinse your face well with warm then cold water.
P.S. You might want to wear an old T-shirt and use gloves when applying the mask and again when washing your face because Turmeric stains and your nails might turn yellow.
