There are numerous preparations from kitchen items:
- Use lemon and pineapple juice to get rid of large pores and blemishes.
- Apply ice to reduce swelling and redness, leave on blemishes for 15 minutes at a time.
- Cleanse your face using lemon.
- Make an exfoliant from sugar paste, or fruit seeds. Exfoliate your legs with salt.
- Make tonic from rosewater.
- Make goat’s milk lotion to nourish healthy skin.
- Make an avocado and honey skin softener to soften your skin.
- Make a facial or face pack from ripe mangoes and almonds, chocolate and honey, carrots, cucumber, milk, and honey, or orange and yogurt.
- Make a sugar and coffee scrub to moisturize your skin overnight.
- spread egg whites over your face for a brightening, firming mask.
Boil some water with either a teaspoon of salt or half a teaspoon of baking soda in it (you can also do both if you DO NOT have sensitive skin). Hold your face over the steam for about 30 min with a towel over your head. (Baking soda has exfoliating properties; salt disinfects and cleanses your skin, the sweating will help get rid of toxins and open pores). Make sure you are doing this on a clean face, afterward is a good time to exfoliate because your pores are open, make sure to do so gently.
