Fresh Fruit Facials for Healthy Skin
I have become obsessed with learning new natural skincare recipes and remedies. I have a skin condition called psoriasis; so I have become well read on natural remedies and supplements for healing my skin andyes natural skincare remedies and recipes do work. I have literally managed and my psoriasis with very little to no flare ups for years;and I did not have money to go to a dermatologist. I take vitamins and eat somewhat healthy(I can’t lie, I battle with junk food). I de-stress with meditations, affirmations. So enough about me, I really want to share any knowledge regarding natural skincare remedies.
One of my favorite face tightening mask is the peach facial, which works very well. Simply take a ripened peach, and remove the skin and the pit from the center. Place the peach and the whites from a single egg in a blender, and whip until smooth. Pat the mixture onto your face, and allow it to sit there for 30 minutes. Rinse good with cold water.
I have researched and found that the apple mask is very good for normal skin. Peel, core, and quarter an apple. Chop the apple in your blender, and add two tablespoons of honey. Blend until smooth. Then remove the mixture from the blender, and refrigerate for approximately 10 minutes. Apply the mixture to your face using a patting motion, and be sure to pat until the honey becomes tacky. Leave it on for about 30 minutes, and rinse off with warm water.
A friend’s grandmother taught her about using a Strawberry mask for healthy glowing skin. The trick here is to use extremely ripe Strawberries. Add approximately ½ cup of strawberries and a ¼ cup of cornstarch to the blender, and mix until smooth. Apply the mixture to your face, and be careful to avoid the area around your eyes. Leave it on for 30 minutes, and rinse it off with cool water.
The next facial mask works great for blemished skin. Chop a ripened tomato into small pieces, and place it in your blender. Add one tablespoon of lemon juice and some instant oatmeal or rolled oats. Mix until it is all combined. Do not mix for too long, as it will not stick to your face. If it gets too thin, simply add more oatmeal. Apply the mixture, and leave it on for 10 minutes. Scrub it off using a warm, wet cloth.
There are many different ways to heal your skin, and as many different products on the market. In my experience, the most natural treatments provide the best results. Always avoid products that have heavy perfumed scents or that use poor quality ingredients. All natural fruit facials have worked wonders for skin.
