Today, it is appropriate to say that we live our lives behind four walls since we cannot leave our homes that much. When it comes to children's lessons, virtual meetings, and housework, we can neglect to spend time on care. Because cleaning the face feels like a burden, and combing the hair feels like a tournament. Feeling good at such times can directly affect our mood and how we spend the rest of the day.
It is time to reconsider the products at home and simplify our care routine. We can also prepare effective care recipes with readily available natural ingredients. Most products, organic or unnatural, promise short-term or partial solutions. The easiest solution to all of this is to use natural products that you can prepare at home. Also, nourishing and natural beauty is better for us and our environment.
We can start by creating a care corner at our bedside. Here, you must have the cream of your own production for nail bottoms (mix vaseline with almond oil) and lavender oil that we can drop on the pillow for a good sleep. Then let's take a look at the pantry and kitchen cabinets. Let's see what we have. Let's save the used tea bags, keep the peels while peeling the fruit. You will find that they all work very well.
Lifting' with eggs
Apply the egg white, which has a rejuvenating effect on the skin, on your face with the help of a brush, and leave it on for a few minutes. When you feel that you have difficulty mimicking, you can wash your face with lukewarm water. Say hello to your tight skin!
Anti-cellulite body care with honey
Apply two teaspoons of honey to the desired areas and pull it back and forth with your fingers and drag it over the surface of the skin. 5-10 minutes massage increases circulation in the area and provides oxygen and nutrient flow to the skin.
Milk alone is a great exfoliating product for the skin. It provides shedding of dead cells; renewed fresh skin radiates with health. Apply the milk to your face with the help of cotton, massage it into the skin.
Oats for breakfast!
Finely ground oat is an effective ingredient that can be used in face masks. Because it is rich in antioxidants and loaded with vitamin E, it protects the skin and strengthens the skin barrier. It absorbs excess oil from the skin by reducing sebum production. On the other hand, it also provides the moisture that the skin needs. We recommend it, especially for oily skin.
- 2 tablespoons of ground oatmeal
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 heaped tablespoon of yogurt
- Grind the oats, add brown sugar and yogurt
- Use as a face mask or exfoliation
Purification with apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar cleanses the skin from dead cells and gives vitality, and keeps sebum production under control. You can rub it on your face with cotton, mix it with honey and drink it. It is also beneficial for hair. It contains Acetic acid that preserves the natural pH balance of the hair. It prevents dandruff, adds shine to hair.
Purifying hair care with apple cider vinegar
- 1 part water
- 2 tablespoons of vinegar
- Slowly add the vinegar to the water
- Apply the mixture you have obtained to your hair after shampoo and rinse
You can prepare a unique steam bath by mixing the leaves, spices, fruit peels, and herbal tea bags in the house. Well, which tea is good for what?
It has an anti-inflammatory effect. It soothes and nourishes the skin. It removes redness caused by skin sensitivity and acne. Add lemon peel to the steam bath to benefit from its purification feature.
It is loaded with antioxidants. It protects the skin from free radicals and damage over time. If you are at home, you can add rose petals to the steam bath as well as green tea to support collagen production.
It accelerates blood flow. It prevents acne formation by keeping oil production under control. With its refreshing effect, it reduces itching and soothes the skin. You can also add oil-balancing fresh or dried thyme and soothing lavender oil to the steam bath.
It speeds up circulation. It is good for tired and pale skin. Cinnamon and cloves, which give vitality to the skin, can be added to the steam bath with ginger tea leaves. Orange peel also provides a refreshing effect.
- First, wash your hands thoroughly
- Prepare your face for steam, preferably with a double cleansing method (oil-based and water-based cleanser)
- Put the mixture in a bowl. Add boiling water and let it sit for a few minutes
- Place a towel over your head, lean into the steam, breathe deeply and exhale
It is very important to follow this process with a natural moisturizer that does not contain harmful chemicals, because the skin becomes more absorbent with the opening of the pores.
The skin renews itself every 28 days. As we age, the process slows down, and a dull, stained skin texture is formed. Dead cells, product residues, and dirt form a layer on the skin surface. Thus, blackheads and pimples are born.
We should do body scrub frequently to reveal fresh and new skin. Using circular movements in the direction of the heart while peeling the body increases blood circulation, activates the lymphatic system, and cleanses the body from toxins.
Coffee, which is the ingredient of many cellulite and detention creams, revitalizes and tightens the skin. We can use Turkish coffee grounds for peeling. After the filter coffee is drunk, it leaves a residue of the kind you can use.
- ½ Cup brown sugar
- ½ Cup can be finely ground filter coffee (or residue) or grounds of Turkish coffee
- A tablespoon of cinnamon or ground ginger
- ½ Cup measuring cup coconut oil or any other home oil of your choice (olive oil)
- Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Slowly add some of the oil to the mixture. After a little mixing, add the rest. The mixture should have a consistency that can be spread easily, like wet sand
Hoping to be able to go to the beach freely and touch the genuine wet sand in the hopeful summer days when the sun touches our skin.
