Skin care home remedies are inexpensive, fun, and leave your skin feeling beautiful.
Everyone dreams about having perfect skin- that luscious, soft and dewy complexion only today's models seem to have. It's skin that looks and feels perfect, with an even tone and color.
Of course, anyone could tell you that an expensive spa treatment will give you amazing skin. But did you know that the right skin care remedies can provide the same results?
Skin care home remedies cost anywhere from $0 to $10. The best part is that you can have fun creating them in your own home, and then enjoy the beautiful results.

One of my favorite skin care home remedies is this recipe for soft skin. This dry skin home remedy is practically free, (assuming you have a few standard items in your shower), and is a miracle worker for rough, flaky, or marked skin. (Or even if you have great skin, and want to make it perfect for a romantic night out!)
You will need:
- A shower brush or loofah
- Gentle soap
- A razor if you need it for the specific area
- A moisturizing lotion
The first step in this recipe is to clean your skin and prep it for the whole process. Begin by soaping up the area you'd like to soften, and work it into a nice rich lather to remove oil, dirt and dead skin cells.
After rinsing off the soap, add a dollop of shampoo to your brush or loofah. Work the brush around and around in two inch circles over the entire area. Exfoliating this way is important, so be sure to do this for about two or three minutes.
If you need to for this specific area of the body, shave carefully as usual. After you have finished shaving, exfoliate again in small circles for one minute. This will help to completely soften the skin and prevent razor burn.
Don't forget this step! After you've gone through the exfoliation process, apply your skin moisturizer liberally to the area. (I recommend raw coconut oil.) Let it soak in for 20 to 30 minutes, and enjoy how soft and healthy your skin looks and feels
Another of my favorite personal skin care home remedies is all about getting the closest and smoothest shave possible.
It's really frustrating to spend so much time shaving your legs for a great night, only to find that the stubble has returned within 12 hours. In retaliation of this pesky annoyance, I created a formula to get the closest and longest-lasting shave possible.
To get the closest shave with my skin care home remedies, you must begin with exfoliation to remove skin, dirt and oils. The process is the same as the exfoliation process in the above recipe, using body scrub to remove dead skin.
Start by soaking your skin in hot water for 5-15 minutes.
Add soap or shampoo to your shower brush/loofah, and scrub your skin in two inch circles for a few minutes. Pay special attention to knees, elbows, ankles, and feet as these areas get particularly rough.
Next you will want to turn on cool water. It doesn't need to be dead cold, but it should be cold enough to give your healthy skin light goosebumps.
Using a good amount of soap or shaving cream, carefully shave the entire area of skin.
When you are finished shaving, rinse with warm water. Then exfoliate again, the same way as above. This process allows your razor to get closer to the skin by exfoliating first, and also gives you a closer shave with the use of cool water.
As the last step, gently dry your skin with a towel, and apply moisturizers to the area you shaved. Allow it to soak in for 10 or 15 minutes.
