The best option is to make the most of what one picks up during grocery shopping and whisk up some effectual and pocket-chummy facials one could hit upon.

  • Innate age combatants like the combination of a banana and five to six shredded almonds is an ideal exfoliating, smoothening and anti-aging mask. The well-known age-combating anti-oxidant properties of olive oil are great for all skins especially so for flakiness. Olive oil nearly a quarter cupful blended along with a teaspoonful of brown sugar is a wholesome skin cleanser. A great mask is a combo of half portion of both banana and avocado, two tablespoons of yoghurt and a teaspoonful of olive oil, left for close to half an hour is great for relieving dryness and getting that dewy appearance. For those with pigmented skin, a blend of a cupful of curds or yoghurt along with two small spoonfuls of ground red tea is an ideal scrub for all skin types.
  • Another natural anti-aging, hydrating mask that can be whipped at home is a teaspoonful of cold pressed organic walnut oil, around ten grinded almonds and a drop of Geranium Essential Oil to make a viscous mix to be applied over the face and washed off with tepid water after half an hour.
  • A creamy face pack of a blend of a tablespoon each of yoghurt, cucumber and parsley when slathered and left on the face for twenty minutes gives a rejuvenating and moisturising effect.
  • For gentle and effective natural exfoliation, one could firstly mix two cups of sugar with a quarter cup of almond oil, thoroughly blending followed by tipping in close to four teaspoons of freshly extracted lemon juice and four drops lemon essential oils. This scrub gently lifts off dead cells and gives a natural glow.
  • For sensitive skin, the soothing, beneficial mask of a chilled, blended mix of a tablespoon each of Brewer’s Yeast and grinded oats, a de-skinned cucumber and two tablespoonful of sour cream or yoghurt to be left on the face for close to thirty minutes and washed off thereafter to get that invigorated, fresh feel.
  • For a gleaming skin, a mask comprising of a blend of two-third cup of freshly pulped papaya, a half cup of pumpkin and a beaten egg is to be left for fifteen minutes and removed off to get a fine glow.

    Well these are some great tips for sure! I love trying out new recipes for my face and body. I use pure olive oil for my moisturizer and baking soda for my cleanser. I also take my Vidazorb chewable probiotic every day! I have read that probiotics not only boost immunities but they help with anti-aging and skin! Yay! Thanks again :)
