We go through life constantly searching for that one product that’s going to clear up our skin, make pimples and blackheads vanish, and wash away splotchy skin tones. But what if the answer is already in our kitchens? Explore 3 of nature’s little skincare miracles.
1. Honey has been accepted in the medical community.
a. Certain hospitals and practitioners now prescribe specifically prepared varieties of honey as a treatment for wounds, skin irritations and even acne. Can you say, “honey, stat!”
2. Honey can work miracles on your skin, naturally.
a. Honey is an antimicrobial, antioxidant, moisturizer, and it regulates skin pH levels. But only a truly raw variety that has not been refined, heated or pasteurized. Try ordering manuka honey.
3. Cucumbers contain 2 important things that your skin loves.
a. Ascorbic acid and caffeic acid. They prevent water retention, so puffy eyes, dermatitis and swollen abrasions are no match for it's mother nature-inspired miraculousness (new word)
4. Cucumbers will get your glow on.
a. Cucumber juice is loaded with silicon, providing your skin with much needed elasticity, and clear complexion. And all the water in it hydrates, giving skin a natural glow.
5. Lemons can lighten dark scars and reduce age spots.
a. By applying lemon juice to the discolored area at bedtime and leaving it on the skin overnight, you can lighten dark spots on the skin. Wash it off in the morning.
6. Lemon juice can remove dead skin and soak up oil.
a. The citric acid in a lemon acts as a gentle, natural skin peel. And dries up oily skin. Seems mother nature provided alternatives to all the expensive treatments long before they existed. Clever much?
7. Mix raw, organic honey and lemon juice for a post-steam mask.
a. A few teaspoons of honey mixed with fresh lemon juice make for a majorly moisturizing mask made for mama. Begin with a steam facial to open pores, apply mask for 30 minutes, and rinse. Supercharge and close pores with a cucumber juice rub.
8. Mix cucumber and lemon juice for the eyes of a teen.
a. Shred up cucumber and mix with fresh lemon juice. Press cotton rounds into the mixture, cool in the fridge, and use the soaked pads to shed years off your eyes.
9. Mix honey and cucumber to tone and promote elasticity and new skin growth.
a. The mix of cucumber and honey make for a mask that beats all masks. Puree a small cucumber along with a few teaspoons of organic honey. After 20 minutes, rinse with cold water. Do this several times a week and bask in the results.
10. Mix honey, lemon juice and cucumber for the all-out superhero mask.
a. You’ll feel like Wonder Woman, and have her perfect skin, too. Mix these three to tone, hydrate, exfoliate and lift skin to levels only a superhero like you could appreciate.
