Kitchen-made skin care recipes to clean, soften, and brighten your skin
1. Skin care products are way too expensive! A tiny jar or bottle can cost well over $60 depending on the company name and brand. That's about $55 spent paying for their advertising campaign, and about $5 spent on their secret recipe product. No, thank you!
All of my skin care recipes have given me real results in a short matter of time, and most of them only cost $1 to $5 to make!
A home remedy to lighten skin
While lemon is a great lightener, it can also make your skin very sensitive because of its acidity.
To use on a daily basis, mix 1 tsp lemon juice into 1 1/2 cups of your daily moisturizing lotion. Use this mixture daily to lighten your complexion.
The perfect wrinkle and eye puffiness combo recipe!
Here is something each of us can do about it.
You may have seen on TV or heard from your mother that cucumber is great for reducing puffy eyes. This is true! But, there is a better way.
Using both avocado and cucumber together can effectively eliminate both eye puffiness and wrinkles! Avocado has natural oils that can plump and rejuvenate skin to erase those ugly wrinkles.
Cucumber rehydrates, cools and soothes the skin. This helps both reduce the puffiness, and also adds water to the skin to plump it and help the wrinkles fade.
Begin by using an avocado-honey paste around your eyes to sooth the skin, plump it, and begin erasing those wrinkles. After 20 minutes, gently rinse it off.
Then, try the traditional method of lying on your back with cucumber slices over your eyes. Leave these on for an additional 15 minutes.
After this home spa treatment, you should feel healthier skin and see more beautiful young eyes! :)
