Without stripping your skin of its natural oils, coconut oil can eliminate any shine that appears at the end of the day. It has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, it’s an effective moisturiser, and it’s great for your skin. However, if you have acne-prone skin, steer clear of coconut oil unless you know that your face can tolerate it.
Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar may help restore your skin’s pH levels (a figure expressing the acidity or alkalinity of a solution) to help soothe breakouts, prevent clogged pores, and keep skin from becoming too dry or too oily. Its pH of about 5.5 is very close to the ideal pH of human skin. Apply to a clean face with a cotton ball or pad. Once your skin dries, put on your usual daily moisturiser.
Honey and lemon face cleanser
Honey and lemon together are a natural moisturiser and antiseptic, a perfect soothing and cleaning combination for a natural face cleanser. Honey is naturally antibacterial and full of antioxidants, which are shown to prevent acne and slow down your skin’s ageing process. Honey is also great if you’re looking for a complexion boost. As for the lemon juice, “it’s often recommended in DIY skin care because it has vitamin C, which is a great antioxidant. Combine 2 teaspoons honey and 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice. Warm it between your fingers, then smooth a thin layer onto your face and neck.
Yoghurt is a perfect natural face cleanser, rich in protein and lactic acid. These compounds work together to help detoxify the skin. Applying lactic acid regularly encourages your skin to get rid of the dead cells through exfoliation, and protein helps tighten pores, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and hydrate. Gently massage a thin layer of plain yoghurt into your clean face using your fingertips; this action will help loosen any dirt or makeup. Leave yoghurt on for 5-10 minutes, then wash off with warm water and a towel.
Suffer from dry skin? Avocado oils are rich in fatty acids and polyphenols, which are nourishing and help fight ageing. Just apply enough oil to cover your face with your fingertips using a circular motion, and hold a warm washcloth over your oil-covered face for a few minutes to open the pores. Then gently wash away using warm water.
Grapes can help shield skin cells from harmful UV radiation. Grapes also contain vitamin C, which is proven to help form collagen, the protein that improves skin elasticity and keeps you looking young. Split 3 or 4 large grapes (red or green), removing any seeds. Rub the fleshy interior on your face and neck. This will condition your skin and reduce dryness. Rinse with cool water and gently pat skin dry.
