Do you ever get the feeling those centuries-old tips on anti-aging from your mother or grandmother are better than some of the modern techniques we hear about? You’re right. Many of those tips are the best you’ll get. Take for instance, the wash-your-face tip from your mom.
Proper facial cleansing is the best anti-aging tip you’ll ever get. There’s more than one way and cleansers go from natural to formulated. Some are Eco-friendly and some are not. There are a number of natural facial scrubs you can make right at home. Scrubs are part of a valuable anti-aging regimen you can follow regularly. GerardCosmetics.com knows how important youthful skin is. Here are a few natural scrub recipes that will help enhance your skin naturally.
Scrubs exfoliate your skin by removing the dead skin cells and dry skin from the surface. Open your cupboard and you’ll probably find a lot of natural scrub ingredients. One of them is oatmeal. Oatmeal is great for sensitive skin. Mix finely ground oatmeal with honey and yogurt. Rub in a circular motion around your face and then let it sit for about 20-30 minutes before wiping off with a warm, moist cloth.
A sea salt scrub is great for dry skin. It contains trace minerals and can help to rejuvenate dry skin. Add essential oil, such as lavender and then mix with mineral oil or coconut oil to make a paste. Scrub in a circular motion and then rinse and wash as usual.
Some over the counter scrubs you can buy from the cosmetic section of most stores are not the best. In fact, many can do harm to your tender facial skin. Be sure you know what you’re using and follow instructions on every product you buy.
Raw honey is antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal. If you have acne, this scrub is for you! It kills skin infections, including those caused by acne. Raw honey reduces inflammation and hydrates the skin. Mix honey with any of the other exfoliants mentioned in this article to boost the antioxidant and anti-bacterial benefits.
Taking good care of your skin is (hopefully) the way you start your day. It’s also the way to end your day. Remember to remove makeup and cleanse before bed.
