5 Simple Organic Skin Care Recipes
You can make a nice scrub with dried corns. Take a table spoon of dried corn kernels and grind them to make a fine powder. Mix this powder in a table spoon of ground rice powder. For making a thick paste mix either raw milk (for normal to dry skin) or carrot juice (for oily skin). Make a fine paste and use as a scrub. Wash off with plain water and apply some moisturizer.
Papaya mask For brightening your dull complexion, take half cup of ripe papaya. Mash it and mix it with half cup yogurt and a couple of lemon juice drops. Apply on your face and neck and let it air dry. Wash off with plain water. It will immediately brighten your complexion.
This mask lends a pink glow to face. Its soothing fragrance relieves stress and makes us feel good. Take two roses and separate the petals from the flower.
Make a thick paste of the petals and mix it with a tablespoon of rose water, a tea spoon of honey and a teaspoon of yogurt. Apply on the face and neck. Rinse with plain water after air drying.
Tomato is a natural astringent and toner for oily skin. If you are pissed off blackheads and whiteheads on your nose then rubbing a small piece of fresh tomato before bath will help in removing them and keeping excess oil away from your skin.
Leave the tomato juice on face for 15 minutes before washing off with plain water. Do not use soap after rubbing tomato on your face as it can cause itchiness and dryness on your face and do not rub the tomato vigorously on your face.
Cucumber juice acts as a natural organic toner for all skin types. It helps in reducing pore size also. Take a cucumber and grate it to extract its juice. Store this juice in a glass bottle and store in refrigerator. At bed time when you follow your regular CTM (Cleanse, tone, moisturize) routine use this cucumber juice as a natural toner.
Take it on cotton wool and gently rub all over your face and neck. Do not use the same juice for more than 4 days. Extract juice from a fresh cucumber after every four days.
These organic skin care products are easy to make and are gentle on skin. You can easily use them on daily basis. Somehow, if you feel you are allergic to certain products then stop using it on your skin else it can lead to skin problems.
