Dull skin is a problem for many of us. With our busy lifestyles, most of us don’t have time to pay attention to our skin. The hustle is real. While foundations and creams may help, they are only short term solutions. Some creams might not be good for your skin either. If you have dull skin, give it a boost with a homemade fruit facial.
When it comes to taking care of your skin, the treatment may be as close as your kitchen. No matter your lifestyle or budget, you can use natural ingredients to enhance your skin without exposing yourself to harsh chemicals. Actually, I heard that you should not use anything on your skin that you cannot put inside your mouth. Gets one thinking hey?
Understanding your skin
Your skin is the largest organ of your boy. It is there to protect your internal body. But if you do not give your skin the nourishment that it needs, it will have a hard time doing its job. You need to take good care of your skin by giving it proper nutrition and keeping it moisturized.
One way to keep your skin moisturized is to boost it with topical facial masks. The best kind of facial masks are homemade fruit facial masks. Once you have these fruits, you can make your facial mask at home. When you combine this with good nutrition, exercise and drinking lots of water, you will have skin that glows.
What facial masks do: They remove excess oils, retain moisture and remove dead cell layers so that the healthier skin beneath can shine through.
Ingredients for your homemade fruit facial
Below are some ingredients you can use to make your facial mask:
They are filled with antioxidants. For sallow skin, the seeds can gently exfoliate the outer layers without being harsh. You can also use raspberries and blackberries.
All masks need to have filler that holds the mask together. Oatmeal is good to absorb any excess oil in the skin and soften its feel. Try to find oatmeal that is ground to a fine powder instead of the big rolled oats. Better still, put the regular oatmeal into a dry blender.
And you wonder why babies have such shiny skin. Bananas are added for help in retaining moisture in your skin.
They contain antioxidant substances as well. See your skin tighten and tone.
They are not just for your eyes but your entire face. Cucumbers reduce swelling and puffiness while soothing and cooling your skin.
TIP: Before you apply your homemade face mask, wash your face free from any makeup. You could also take a warm shower to open up your pores.
How to make your face mask
Simply mix these ingredients together until they are a smooth paste. Next gently spread it over your skin with your fingertips. When you’re done, lay down and place a slice of cucumber over each eye. Relax for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse off.
If you want skin that glows all the time, facial masks will help a lot, but you also need to pay attention to your diet. Eat natural and healthy foods. And drink lots of water.
