Great skin is something that we all want to possess. When we look good, we feel even better, and this is why the beauty industry creates thousands of new skincare products each year for consumers to purchase. However, in the last few years, people have been turning to natural methods to create smooth, soft and supple skin, which have some of the best results.
1. Great Oatmeal and Milk
Oatmeal is a good source of protein and the Vitamins E and B, making it perfect for both your body and skin. Eating oatmeal will help lose weight, but combining it with a little bit of milk will be the perfect meal for your skin. Mix a little oatmeal and milk together with a little honey, and smear it over your face. Since oatmeal has a grainy texture, it is great for exfoliation, leaving your skin refreshed and smooth.
Grapefruit has a composition quite similar to that of lemons, with a high concentration of vitamins A, B, C, D and P, making it one of the best natural supplements for great skin. Because of its high amount of vitamin C, natural beauty creams, lotions and washes made from grapefruit will help to refresh the skin, as well as lighting facial hair, blemishes and scars, and fighting the battle against wrinkles and freckles.
Lemons have been used for thousands of years as a much loved ingredient for numerous natural beauty treatments. Great skin can be yours when you too use this little fruit. Lemons contain high concentrations of citric acid, sugar, vitamins A, B15, B2, R and C. You can use it in a number of different ways to lighten facial hair and skin, as well as fight acne and refresh the skin. Lemon masks will leave you with great skin by slicing a lemon and infusing it in a glass of vodka for ten days. Wet a piece of gauze in the infusion and place over the face for 15 minutes, but do not wash the mask off. It will tighten the pores and leave a glowing look to your skin.
4. Lime Flowers
Lime flowers can be found at any drug or natural health store. Known for their wonderful pain relief properties, they can also be used to achieve great skin. Simply pour half a cup of boiling water over a tablespoon of dried lime flowers and leave to infuse for a few hours before filtering. After this, mix a tablespoon of the infusion with a tablespoon of natural butter. Smear the paste onto your skin for around 20 minutes before wiping off any remnants of the butter with a piece of clean gauze. The results are beautiful, naturally soft skin that seems to glow.
Not only are bananas yummy for your tastebuds, but they are great for your skin since they contain a high amount of potassium. Simply mash a banana up (with honey if you like) and rub it onto the skin. It works as a fantastic moisturizer, keeping your skin supple and smelling great.
