Who Knew Honey, Cucumber & Lemon Were Such Amazing Skincare Miracles?
A naturally glowing skin – beautiful, smooth and flawless - is a show-stopper any day.
The amazing power of homemade organic skincare products can give you show-stopping skin!
Although there are many seemingly useful chemical products aimed at cultivating an even skin tone, nothing beats natural remedies.
Fortunately, nature has been very gracious to us by according us with plenteous fruits and natural skin savers.
Instead of burning a hole in your pocket to get a spa facial, why not tap into nature’s skin care miracles?
You'll be saving a lot of money and putting back some deserved radiance on your skin. For this purpose, we have discovered three natural ingredients
that are nature's skin care miracles and some excellent ways of getting the best out of them!
The first is Honey. . .
- Honey is indispensable in the medical community.
Besides being used to sweeten your cookies and cakes, this amber-colored sweetener is very potent for preventing infection and boosting healing. It's therefore not surprising that certain varieties of honey are now recommended by hospitals and medical practitioners for the treatment of skin irritations, wounds, and even acne.
- Honey is your skin's natural miracle worker.
Honey's impressive chemical composition makes it an antioxidant, antimicrobial moisturizer that is fantastic for skin care. Also, its ability to regulate skin pH levels, plus its smooth, viscous nature provides moisture that creates a glowing, improved complexion. However, ensure that you opt for a raw form of honey that has not been pasteurized, heated or refined, such as Manuka honey.
The second wonder is cucumbers. . .
- Cucumbers contain two useful components for your skin.
Cucumbers contain caffeic and ascorbic acid which are both very helpful in preventing water retention. Using cucumber for your skincare needs ultimately means saying goodbye to swollen abrasions, dermatitis, and puffy eyes. Once these problems are history, you’ll be creating room for naturally smooth and supple skin!
- Cucumber is synonymous with flawless skin.
Since cucumber and the skin have the same hydrogen levels, it’s much easier for cucumber to target and correct all the problem areas in the skin. This makes it an effective remedy for aging skin, wrinkles, poor skin tone, and skin inflammation. Plus, cucumber contains high quantities of silicon which promotes an elastic, clear-complexioned skin.
The third is lemons. . .
- Lemons can naturally lighten dark scars and age spots.
These small yellow globes of goodness are a terrific addition to your skin care treatment routine because of the high levels of antioxidants and vitamin C contained in them. This makes lemons excellent for skin lightening and treating numerous disorders such as uneven skin tone, blemish scars, and dark spots.
To lighten dark spots, all you need to do is apply some lemon juice to the discolored area before going to bed and wash it off the following morning. You’ll notice the visible effects.
- Lemon juice is an excellent exfoliant and as such can remove dead skin and soak up excess oil that collects on the surface of the skin.
Lemon juice contains citric acid
which acts as a natural exfoliator, ridding you of that oily, problematic skin. You can do this by dipping a cotton swab in a little lemon juice and cleaning your face with it before going to bed, then washing it off when you wake up the next morning. Look out for the results!
But what happens when you combine these three natural miracles?
You make your own amazing anti-aging homemade organic skincare products!
