Home Skin Care Remedies For Women

Most women would love to know how to make skin care remedies at home that actually work. Luckily, there are plenty of recipes out there, most of which can even target very specific issues that you may be experiencing with your skin. Because these methods are completely natural, you can try them out and see which one works best for you without any risk. Do, of course, be aware of any allergies that you may have. Let’s take a look at some of the best home skin care remedies out there for you to try.

Lemon

First of all, you have to have lemon in your house. Lemon is incredibly tasty when added to drinks, like making an infusion by adding a few drops and slices to boiling water, or to cooking and salads. It is also a citrus fruit, which means it is excellent brain food. But most importantly, it is a vital tool for skin care remedies as well.

“Lemon is one of the best ingredients that you can use to promote clear skin. The citric acid present in lemon helps keep the skin clear by removing dead cells, and its vitamin C content helps reduce dark spots by increasing the cell renewal process. Lemon also has bleaching properties that will help improve your overall skin complexion.”

You can, very simply, apply freshly squeezed lemon juice to your face and neck. Do not, however, go out in the sun afterwards as it may cause your skin to burn. You can also mix it with some organic honey and create a face mask that you leave on for about 15 minutes. Finally, mix it with some sugar (brown is best) for a brilliant exfoliator, getting rid of all the dead skin cells.

Raw Honey

We mentioned raw (organic) honey earlier, but it deserves a mention in its own right. Again, it is something that everyone should have in their house simply for the sheer tastiness of it. Honey also has natural anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. Because of this, it is perfect for skin care regimens. Turning honey into a facial mask is very easy to do, and the best thing is that it works really well to combat acne.

“Mix 1 teaspooon of ground cinnamon with 3 tablespoons of raw honey for a (literally) killer acne-fighting mask. Spread the mixture on clean, dry skin and leave for up to one hour before rinsing with warm water.”

Your skin will feel rejuvenated and soft after this. Honey truly is a wonderful product, which is why it was also so popular in ancient times. The Ancient Egyptians, for instance, believed it to be the fountain of youth, which goes a long way towards explaining why it is such a popular anti-aging ingredient.

Papaya

Papaya is a wonderful fruit. It is said to be a ‘super food’ because it contains so many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that it will always benefit the body, whether it is consumed as food or applied topically. You can also turn it into a wonderful face pack.

“Ripe papaya contains BHA or beta hydroxy acid which act as a mild exfoliater. This gently removes the top dead cells of the face and gives a radiant and younger looking skin. It also clears the dirt and oil that can lead to acne and break outs on the face.”

Simply cut the papaya into pieces, add a bit of sandalwood powder (this will make you smell gorgeous as well), add a teaspoon of honey, and mix it all into a paste. Apply directly to the skin and leave for about 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
