Native Remedies, the world’s leading online provider of all-natural, homeopathic and holistic health & wellness products, has compiled a list of helpful tips that will have your skin going from drab to fab by summer.
1. Use natural facial products. Use products that contain essential oils such as Marula, Rosehip or Avocado oil. These act as natural antioxidants and have been found to have therapeutic benefits for the skin.
2. Open your fridge! Try cucumber for rosacea, yogurt for smoother skin texture (due to lactic acid) and apple cider vinegar to tone the skin.
Grapes make a great natural cleanser. Simply split a few grapes into halves and rub gently across your face for several minutes, then rinse with cool water. Alternatively, you can also mash a few grapes and apply, allow to dry, then rinse off after 15 minutes.
Eating certain foods can also do wonders. The best foods for skin rejuvenation include berries, peaches, sardines, citrus fruits and natural oils. Herbs such as Spirulina and Rosemary can help to counter act the effects of oxidization of cells, while extracts of lemon and peppermint have been shown to help give skin that ‘pick-me-up’ boost when it is lackluster and dull!
3. Invest in a good overnight product. During sleep, our body regenerates on a cellular level and this is the time when your skin can absorb nutrients. Choose a product that can be left on overnight to plump the skin, promote elasticity and help reduce fine wrinkles.
I like L’BRI smooth n’ Firm Eye Repair Gel. I’ve tried other eye creams in the past the burns and stings. This gel is an all natural facial care product that restores elasticity to the eye area. it is created for all skin types and reduces fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. this product is formulated with aloe, cucumber and vitamins A, C and E.
4. It’s all in the application. Remember to massage gently when applying skin creams and cleansers- no harsh rubbing or pulling!
