Eating organic and healthy is trendy nowadays, and we tend to incorporate foods into the diet that make us fit. But what if we use the same to make our skin healthy? Yes, going au naturale is the best way out there, and there are plenty of foods you can use to get that glow of dreams. Use these seven foods for a complete facial skin care regime and shine bright!
Use olive oil as cleanser
Olive oil has multiple benefits, and apart from being the health goddess that it is, this oil does a lot for your skin too. It cleanses your skin by dissolving the sebum on your face and going deep into the pores. Massage olive oil on your facial skin for 1-2 minutes, then rinse it off with lukewarm water.
Use lemon as a toner for your facial skin
Yes, lemon is harsh for your skin, but if diluted properly, it acts as an amazing natural toner. The facial skin is slightly acidic in nature so as to prevent bacterial growth. Squeeze one tablespoon of lemon and mix it with two tablespoons of water to get the best results. If your skin is too oily, you should use two tablespoons of lemon juice with two tablespoons of water.
Banana as a natural moisturizer for your facial skin
Apply a ripe, mashed banana on your skin directly. Wash the remainings after 20 minutes to see the change from day one! Banana is rich in vitamins A, B, E and potassium which acts as a really good moisturizer. The high water content helps in facilitating that, giving you that desired glow on your facial skin.
Strawberry as facial mask
There is numerous strawberry infused beauty products out there, so why not use the original one? Strawberries are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. These help prevent the collagen breakdown and radical damage to your skin cells and act as an anti-ageing, compound respectively. Apply a handful of mashed strawberries and apply onto your skin directly.
Use olive oil and vinegar as cream
Using cream on your facial skin before going to sleep is beneficial. Olive oil lightens your dark spots and vinegar acts as an antibacterial agent, making sure you wake up fresh and happy in the morning. Combine a half cup of olive oil and one-fourth cup of vinegar with one-fourth cup of water to get best results.
Brown sugar and honey as exfoliator
Grind some brown sugar and combine a half cup of it with three tablespoons of honey. Gently apply this mixture to your face and wash off after 15 minutes. Do it one or two times a week for best results.
Green tea for your eyes
Dampen two bags of green tea and put in in the fridge and let it cool. Put it on your eyes for fifteen minutes to reduce puffiness of the eye area. The anti-inflammatory antioxidants help to keep your eyes fresh as ever!
