So, head now to your kitchen and start making your own beauty formulas for a skin rejuvenating session.
Lemon for Blackheads – Squeeze one whole fresh lemon in freshly boiled milk and let it cool for few minutes. Massage the milk mixture on face before going to sleep and wake up to a fresher, black-spot-free face.
Cooling Cucumber – Cucumber gives off cooling sensation to the face and body, therefore can also be used as facial cleanser. Combine cucumber juice with milk and mix well. Moisten a piece of cotton with the cucumber juice mixture and apply to the face and neck.
Facial Honey – If you have dry skin, massage your face with honey and lemon mixture every day for 15 minutes. The honey will naturally replenish your skin’s moisture and give the face a youthful glow.
Whitening Tomatoes – Tomatoes are known to be good bleaching solutions. So if you have dark spots and uneven facial skin tone, rub slices of tomato on face and neck to achieve fairer and even complexion.
Oil-free Face – Squeeze lemon juice on thinly sliced cucumber and rub on face. This formula will help control facial oiliness. Apply daily for a fresher look and oil-free face.
Pore-Tightening Milk – Squeeze one whole lemon juice on room-temperature liquid milk and wash on face before putting any make-up on. The milk solution will tighten facial pores, stopping dirt and chemicals from entering skin openings that can cause pimples and blackheads.
