It's 2016, and the world is finally embracing Mother Nature and all the wonderful gifts she has to bring. If you’re tired of using the usual chemical beauty products that leave your skin and hair in poor condition, here are some natural beauty tips you can do at home that’ll keep you glowing always.
Simple Honey Face Mask
Throw away your chemical face mask and get a jar of raw honey. That’s right; all you need is raw unprocessed honey. Take a tablespoon of honey and spread it on your face, rubbing it in gently. Leave it on for 5-10 minutes then rinse off with warm water. Do this about once a week. This is a great, easy way to get soft, beautiful skin.
Natural black head removal
For clear, black-head free skin all you need is a lemon and some honey. Cut the lemon in to half or preferably into a wedge. Then place some honey on it. Rub the honey-covered-lemon on your face, emphasize on the areas of concern. Leave on your face for 5 minutes then rinse with cold water. It’s preferable to this before bed as the lemon makes your skin sensitive to sunlight, so you really don’t want to go out in the sun after you’ve done this.
Apple-honey face mask
The high anti-oxidant present in apples and honey help minimize wrinkles and aging. All you have to do for this anti-aging beauty mask is apply a mix of apple juice and natural honey on your face. Let it dry, and then rinse it off.
Cucumber face mask
This green fruit is not only useful when having facials but can also be used as cure to dry skin. Simply, apply its juice on your face, let it dry then wash it off.
Aloe Vera hair treatment
Most people know Aloe Vera for its medicinal or skin use, but Aloe Vera is very good for the skin also. It’s a fantastic way to treat dry and damaged hair as it adds volume and shine to it. During your usual hair wash apply a small amount of Aloe Vera gel into your hair conditioner, leave it in for a few minutes then rinse.
Castor Oil & Coconut Oil
For thicker, longer hair coconut and castor oil is the way to go. All you have to do is mix the coconut and castor oil together and heat it mildly, apply it on your scalp and massage it repeatedly in circular motion. Leave it on for space of 2 hours then wash it off. Do this at least once a week, and you’re certain to have luscious and thick hair.
Aloe Vera is a great treatment for acne, irritated or inflamed skin and also contains properties that can heal scars. Apart from this Aloe Vera moisturizes and stimulates new skin cell growth. Simply extract the gel from an Aloe Vera leaf and apply it on your face or area of concern. Let it stay on for about half an hour then rinse. Aloe Vera can also be used as a moisturizer or an aftershave treatment because, of its healing characteristics.
Milk for rough hands
Rough hands tend to be embarrassing, especially when people give you a handshake. But here’s a simple solution to an annoying problem; soak your hands in milk. Milk has hydrating and nourishing properties which will leave your hands softer and smoother. The key is to warm the milk, and leave your hands soaked in it for about ten minutes. Do this repeatedly, day to day and, voila! Baby-soft hands!
And lastly, the 3 most important natural beauty tips to always remember;
- DRINK WATER
- EAT HEALTHY
What we put in our bodies is just as important as what we apply on the outside. Drinking plenty of water and eating a healthy diet with Vitamin A enriched vegetables, doesn’t only improve your health but you’ll also get glowing skin to go with it. Getting the necessary hours of sleep will also get your skin glowing; give you smooth, luscious lips and awesome hair.
