While there is no scarcity of skin care products available in the market, opting for natural and home based products brings along several advantages with the best one being safeguarding your skin from harsh chemicals. There are several things in your kitchen which can be used for the natural skin care program, which includes cleaning, toning, and moisturizing. Going the natural way is not just healthy but is also budget friendly.
For the purpose of cleansing, you can make use of any plant or vegetable derived oils such as almond oil, olive oil and jojoba oil. The best part of the deal is that these oils will nourish your skin at the same time as they clean it. And if you think that using oils for cleansing can aggravate your oily skin conditions, there’s nothing to worry because these oils are quite helpful in removing the excess oil from your skin. However, oily skin people who are still not convinced can make use of plain yogurt, preferably homemade to which a few drops of any of these oils or honey has been added.
For skin toning, the most suitable natural product is apple cider vinegar; however the other things you can make use of are rose water, lemon juice, cucumber juice, tomato juice and witch hazel extract. Just put it straight on to some cotton and apply it all over your face, leave it on for some time and then rinse your face with cold water.
For the purpose of moisturizing your skin you can either use a moisturizing mask or you can use some natural oils which can be left on the skin. To make a mask you can mix in some honey, yogurt, fruits, essential oils and herbs. Almond, apricot kernel, jojoba, evening primrose and avocado based oils can serve the purpose of daily moisturizer. Look for the more refined forms of these oils to avoid their strong odors.
If these homemade things sound too much, you can even go in for some commercially manufactured natural products which are freely available in the market, but most of these herbal and natural skin care products are quite expensive.
