If you haven’t tried at home remedies, then you are missing a lot on so many beneficial treatments that you can formulate using products found in your kitchen cupboard!
At my part of the world, thousands of home-made beauty recipes have been transferred from a generation to another. Originating from the former societies that relied most on agriculture, herbs and other food products were widely used by women (& men) to maintain and/or enhance their looks.
It is true that not all of these remedies are as universally successful as my grandmas swear them to be, and that they can’t replace some products we use, but seriously, many surprisingly magical results that would normally cost a lot using high-end beauty labels, can be achieved by mixing simple ingredients at home! For this reason, I have decided to post, weekly (fingers crossed), some of these tried on remedies, hoping for you to try them out as well, thus, help reinforcing a natural and organic way of living.
Skin Dermabrasion Mask:
Simply mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda with a bit of warm water, until you have a watery paste. Massage your face with this paste using circular motion, for about 2-3 minutes. Relax and enjoy while doing so! Then rinse with warm water, and follow with your favorite moisturizer while your pores are still open. Repeat weekly, as needed.
Result: Baby soft skin that will most probably be less wrinkled than most people out there, after repeated use. This is achieved by brushing off the outer layer of dead skin cells that causes dry/oily (or both, depending on your skin type), rough appearance, and consequently showing off a healthier, more radiant layer.
Note, this baking soda paste could also be used on your body! Just be careful not to go around eyes and sensitive areas. For the body, after rinsing the paste off, use baby oil. Results are heavenly smooth skin, that you’ll definitely thank me for
Try it out, and let me know what you think!
