There are many combinations of natural skin care recipes that you can make at home using ingredients that are easily found within your reach. Some of these recipes are quite similar to the ones you find in natural skin care products in the market. With these natural skin care recipes you can make masks, scrubs, fresh lotions and many more forms of skin care materials. By making such natural skin care recipes at home by yourself, you can ensure that they’re tailor made for the specific requirements of your skin.
When you get hold of a natural skin care recipe, you should first read and see if it suits your skin. Usually natural skin care recipes with ingredients such as oatmeal, olive oil and aloe are typically used for sensitive or dry skin. Natural skin care recipes that consist of fruits like strawberries, lemon and vinegar are mostly used for individuals with oily skin and acne problems. If you have skin that is a combination of both dry and oily then it will require different treatment; you can safely stick to the soothing, gentle natural skin care recipes that will avoid drying skin.
Like with any other skin care product, it’s important to use the right proportions of natural skin care recipes. Use the recipe correctly and do not overuse it. You should also bear in mind that just because the recipe contains natural ingredients, it does not necessarily mean that you will not have any unfavorable reaction to it. So carefully read your natural skin care recipe and see if it contains any ingredients which you are knowingly allergic to. If you figure out that you’re allergic to it once you use it, then immediately discontinue using that particular natural skin care recipe.
If you have sensitive skin, here’s a recipe for an easy-to-make scrub; simply put together 2-3 teaspoons of baking soda, ½ cup of cornmeal uncooked, whole milk ¼ cup, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 3-6 drops of tea tree oil. Mix all the above ingredients together until well blended. You can put this on your face and gently massage the skin for around a minute. Use warm water to rinse first and then cold water to close the pores. You can use this natural skin care recipe on your skin may be around 2-3 times a week. It will result in smooth and healthy skin.
Another way to use a great natural skin care recipe to come up with an oil absorbing facial mask is to mix mashed avocado or mango with a considerable amount of oatmeal which will result in a thick paste. Put this on your face and wait for 5 minutes. Wash away with warm water afterwards. If you have very oily skin, you can add mashed strawberries also to the mixture.
Now you see that the easiest natural skin care recipes can be made using natural items which can be easily found in your home. It’s just a matter of achieving the right balance that is needed for your skin.
