Who doesn’t want to look beautiful and pretty? We all want to look our absolute best, and yes we know the struggle of trying to find all the best beauty products that may not ruin or damage our skin, or worst of all cost us a kidney, yikes! So here are ten things to add to your skin care routine that’ll keep your wallet at ease and make your skin look beautiful:
1. Rose Water
Rose water helps maintain the skin’s pH balance and it also controls excess oil that forms on the skin. Rose water has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce the redness of irritated skin and get rid of acne, dermatitis and eczema. Rose water helps to even out skin tone and tighten the pores. If you want a faster skin lightening process, you can mix lemon juice and rose water. Rose water has antioxidants that protect skin cells against damage. As rose water also has anti-inflammatory properties, it can be put on the skin to soothe irritation caused by conditions such as eczema and rosacea.
2. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is a common plant that can be found easily in most homes. Aloe vera comes with anti-inflammatory and cooling properties, it provides a protective layer to the skin which helps retain moisture. It also contains compounds such as antioxidants, antibacterial properties and is also rich in minerals which can help speed up the healing process.
The best way to use aloe vera on your face is twice daily, once in the morning and once at night. It can be used for various purposes such as skin whitening, degreasing oily skin, curing pimples, moisturizing the dry skin, decreasing wrinkles, soothing irritated skin, etc.
3. Coconut oil
Coconut oil, found in our kitchen easily, is linked to some potential benefits for the skin which include reduction of inflammation, keeping the skin moisturized and helping in healing of wounds. It also has medium-chain fatty acids which have antimicrobial properties that can help treat acne as well as protect the skin from harmful bacteria.
Water is the best solution to all our skin problems. Proper hydration keeps the skin dense and elastic. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines. Water has an anti-aging effect on your appearance and helps maintain the balance of body fluids. So not only does it help your skin glow and skin care routine, but also keeps your internal body system sorted.
5. Home made scrubs
Rather than spending on exfoliators and scrubs which have chemicals and other processed substances, how about you make your own? Use ingredients like coffee, brown sugar and honey to make yourself a quick organic scrub.
6. Cut down on the products
Using twenty products will just confuse your skin more so pick five of your top and essential products and stick to those rather than spending on multiple products and wasting them.
7. Start believing in Dupes.
Drug store makeup is pocket friendly and does the job just about perfectly so why not buy that instead?
8. Switch to Korean Beauty
Sheet masks are all the hype and we promise you they work brilliantly. So rather than spending tons on messy paste masks, use the super easy and beneficial sheet masks for quarter of the price.
9. DIY facials
You don’t always need to go to the salon for facials. Giving yourself a facial at home is so easy these days. Try it out!
10. Be positive
Positivity and happiness help keep your skin glowing and keeps you smiling. And guess what it is absolutely free.
