DIY Your Own Skincare

Living in a fast pace city, we may not always be able to dedicate sufficient time for treatments. Despite that, we still want to keep our skin looking smooth. So here are some tips on how you can get your own skincare products right in your home!

1. DRINK YOUR DAY AWAY

While most people think drinking water is just going to be making them visit the washroom every few minutes, in truth, it helps your skin a lot. By drinking at least 12 glasses of water every day, it helps to detoxify your skin. It helps to wash out all the toxins in your body.

2. WASH AWAY THAT MAKEUP

Always remember to wash away the makeup on your face before you go to sleep. Sleeping with your makeup on would be one of the ways to get your pores clogged up. Adding on to that, sleeping with your makeup on will cause your skin to look dull and lifeless.

There is a simple way to make your own makeup remover at home. This would be all that you need!

–          ½ cup of Extra virgin olive oil

–          One bottle of aloe vera or filtered water

–          A couple of cotton pads

Instructions

Pour the oil into the bottle of water and shake. Because oil doesn’t mix with water, you need to immediately use after you shake. That’s it! You’ve got your own makeup remover at home.

3. PICK THE RIGHT CLEANSER AND EXFOLIATE

Remember to pick the right cleanser that is suitable to your skin type. Do not use normal soap as it might cause your skin to be dry. Also, do remember to exfoliate at least twice a week. However, if you do have oily skin, you might have to exfoliate more than twice.

You can make the cleanser and exfoliate at home! Here is what you need for the cleanser!

–          1/8 ground roasted almonds

–          2 tablespoons of milk

–          1 teaspoon of lemon juice

Just combine all the ingredients together until you get a paste. Then just gently cleanse your skin with it. There you go, your very own cleanser!

But wait, you can also make your own face scrub! All you need is coffee! Yes, you read it right, COFFEE! Coffee is a natural exfoliant and it makes your skin softer. All you need to do is ground some coffee or use the leftover from your morning’s coffee, add a tablespoon of water and mix well. Then just rub gently on your face and pat your skin dry. Your face will feel soft and smooth after!

4. GET YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP

When you don’t get enough sleep or rest, it’l start to show on your skin, especially on your face. When you don’t get enough rest, blood vessels begin to dilate and that’s when you start getting dark eye circles! Also, your skin will start to sag and become really dull. So the trick is to always get enough sleep and now we all know why they call it beauty sleep.

So there you go, you have your very own skincare products in the vicinity of your home. You can do all this after a long day st work. Give it a try!
