Wouldn’t you feel better if you knew exactly what was going on your skin, your outer covering that has stuck with you throughout your life? When HealingRadius says healthy solutions, we mean fruit and popular homegoods like lemon, aloe vera, and green tea. We’re all about the pure, cost-effective, unprocessed goodies of the world. Although it’s not an easy task to maintain clear and glowing skin, we’ve got some inside information that can help you ditch the store-bought products and focus on what’s in your kitchen. Check out some home favorites that can keep your face looking fresh all day, every day:
The antioxidants and vitamins in lemons act as a natural bleaching agent for the skin, which can encourage new cell growth, enhance skin complexion, and prevent the development of scars. To get started on these benefits, dip a cotton ball in freshly squeezed lemon juice, apply it to your face, have it sit for an hour, then wash it off with water!
If you have an aloe vera plant in your home and you’re wondering what the heck to do with it, you can use it as a solution for healthy and glowing skin. The properties in aloe vera can restore the skin’s original color while regenerating new cells and rebuilding damaged tissue. Simply cut the outer layer of a leaf, squeeze out the gel, apply throughout your skin for about 30 minutes, then wash it off with water.
With its antioxidants and beneficial stickiness, honey can pull away any dead cells and microbes from the pores, making your skin look younger, shinier, and smoother. All you need is one ingredient (use filtered honey rather than traditional cooking honey), apply it as a layer on your face for approximately 20 minutes, and voilà!
Oatmeal works as an effective scrubber to give your skin the shine and smoothness that you’re looking for. Simply take a half cup of oats and mix with a small amount of warm water until it creates a thick paste. Next, apply it to your face in gentle circular motions and keep it on for about 15 minutes, then wash off with cool water.
Due to its high amount of antioxidants, vitamins, potassium, and caffeine, green tea enhances your skin’s complexion while flushing out toxins, healing blemishes and scars, reducing inflammation, and improving elasticity. To get started, cut open two used green tea bags, scoop out contents into a small bowl, add 1 teaspoon of raw honey, a tad of fresh lemon juice, and apply it to your face for 5 to 10 minutes.
With these natural remedies, you can say goodbye to costly facial washes and masks and say hello to fresh, healthy, and naturally glowing skin! If you have any recipes that you use for your skin, please let HealingRadius know in the comments below!
