Looking for proven home remedies for your skin? While many people think that the secrets to great skin are always found in the beauty counter, you may find a few helpful options no further than your kitchen counter. Here are a few affordable ones you should try:
Right at the top of our home remedies list is raw honey. It is full of nutrients, antioxidants and other beneficial substances, explain the Kristals Cosmetics research team. Look for the raw kind of honey that hasn’t been heat-treated so you can get the full benefits of the phytonutrients. Creating a honey mask is simple. Spread a teaspoon on your face, wait 15 minutes and then rinse. If you want to get that gunk out of your pores, mix 2 tablespoons of honey with 2 tablespoons of jojoba or coconut oil. Then apply the blend to your face. Be sure to steer clear of the eye area.
#2 Baking Soda
You probably already have a box in the fridge to keep it smelling fresh, but you can also blend 1 tablespoon with 5 drops of hydrogen peroxide to make a paste. Once a week, you can brush your teeth with this mixture, let it sit for five minutes and then brush with regular toothpaste. The goal here is a brighter, whiter smile. You also can add a bit of baking soda to water to try as a quick spot treatment for pimples that pop up so as to dry them out.
