Despite lacking a fancy label or a huge price, the best skin care treatments don't necessarily have to come from an exclusive salon or shop. Some excellent treatments can come from your own kitchen. In fact, you may be surprised at how well foods that you are probably eating can also help feed your skin or hair to nourish them back to health.
The recipe that I want to share is loaded with beneficial
natural beauty boosting antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins
for reviving a dull complexion while whitening, moisturizing, softening, and tightening--in addition to helping with anti-aging.
Fresh strawberries are wonderful for helping bleach skin
without any harmful side effects. This berry is also good for exfoliating
due to the salicylic acid present and Omega-3 fatty acids for repairing
the cell structure to bring out a younger appearance. Grapes also have
amazing power at whitening the skin as well as softening and anti-aging effects
since they have antioxidants. Honey is jammed with moisturizing capabilities and attracts
water to lock those benefits in while oatmeal tightens, tones, and helps
exfoliate old skin cells to revive and usher in a fresh, glowing complexion.
Of course, there is a bit of work involved compared to
opening a jar of a purchased product. You need to shop for those items
that may not be in your refrigerator and pantry to make your mask and pull out
your blender to prepare it.
Nonetheless, the results are well worth those
few minutes of extra time once you see what happens after you treat your
starving complexion to a proper meal. Let your mirror be the judge and it
has ruled in my favor every time. My guess is your mirror will also pass
the same judgment in your case!
My Homemade Brightening Anti-Aging Facial Mask
1/2 cup of fresh strawberries
4 green grapes
1-1/2 tablespoons of oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon of honey
Take out your blender and grind the oatmeal on high for about 30 seconds or so until its fairly fine.
Next, add the rest of the ingredients together on blend on high for about a minute. This should have a smoothie consistency.
Apply to your freshly washed face and hide away to your
bedroom or wherever you go when you want to be alone. I recommend picking the bedroom because you can relax on the bed since twenty minutes are needed for allowing this mask to work. (You will want that
privacy because you will look temporarily disgusting with these fruits plastered
all over your face).
Use that time to close your eyes, think pleasant thoughts, and then
let your mind just drift during the time can help with stress as well.
Wash the mask off your face when your time is up with
lukewarm water. Be sure to close your pores with cool water before applying your
You will look better and feel more mentally refreshed!
