Starting a Natural Skin Care Routine

Using simple things found in your own kitchen or garden, you can make your own skin care products. Making your own medicines can save you money and be just as effective as ones you can purchase from a store. To find the diet that works best for you, it’s vital to try and experiment with a variety of dishes.

Part 1: The Needs of Your Skin

  1. Determine your skin type. Most people have oily, dry, mixed, or normal skin. If your skin is very oily or dry, read up on how to care for greasy skin and dry skin in general.
  2. Determine whether your skin is allergic to stronger compounds. You have sensitive skin if it turns red, itchy, or acne-ridden when exposed to the sun, other skin products, or scent.
  3. Determine target issues for your skin. Some of these are wrinkles, pimples, dull skin, and dark spots.
  4. Determine how much time and work you want to put into your skincare routine. Exfoliator, cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and spot treatments are all part of a complete skincare program, but you do not have to use all five. The majority of skin care products either clean or moisturize your skin.

Part 2: Natural Solutions

  1. Select the ingredients you want to employ. Ingredients for moisturizing at-home products are listed below.
    • Olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, cream, honey, avocado, and aloe vera are all good options for dry skin.
    • Lemon juice diluted with water, egg white, tomatoes, shredded apples, shredded cucumbers, and apple cider vinegar can all be used to treat oily skin.
    • Yogurt, milk, honey, avocado, shredded apples, shredded cucumbers, and milk for combination skin
    • Yogurt, honey, avocados, almond oils, and green tea are good for regular skin.
  2. Think about whether you want to use some of the above things to make a scrub. Scrubs get rid of dead, dull skin cells and keep wetness in the skin that’s left. Most scrubs have the same amount of liquid and abrasive (listed above and below).
    • Sugar, brown or white
    • Flour
    • Oatmeal or dried oats
    • Fresh strawberries
  3. Select acne-treating ingredients if applicable. Spot treatments that are left on the skin can be used to treat acne without irritating other skin areas. These are most effectively administered using Q-tips or cotton balls.
    • Every day, use 3 drops of tea tree oil diluted to 5-15% to your issue region.
    • 6 drops of jojoba oil to keep your skin hydrated without encouraging acne formation.
    • Every day, apply 3 drops of lemon juice to the affected region. The acidity of lemon juice kills a large number of acne-causing germs.
  4. Choose your moisturizer of choice. This can be an oil, aloe vera gel, or any other hydrating lotion that won’t make your skin uncomfortable if you leave it on for longer than 15 minutes.
    • Even while using an oil-based moisturizer when you have acne may seem unusual, sebum, which causes acne, is an oil and dissolves other oils. Because they are hygroscopic and attract/hold water, oil-based moisturizers are frequently advised by dermatologists because they will hydrate your skin.
    • A moisturizer that is all-natural or organic can be purchased, but it cannot be created at home.

Part 3: Starting a Regimen

  1. Make your skin masks, scrubs, and moisturizers by combining your ingredients. Here are some examples of popular masks and scrubs:
    • 1 egg white and 1 tablespoon lime juice
    • 1 avocado, 1 tablespoon yogurt
  2. Slowly introduce your new routine. Try your new routine for one day each week at first, then two, then three. You might only require your face mask once a week or your scrub twice a week, depending on your skin type and the products you’ve chosen. Find the balance that works best for you.
  3. Wash your face 2 time a day, and always moisturize right after while your skin is still damp.
    • If you have dry or sensitive skin, use warm water.
    • Use light and gentle motions to cleanse. This may help prevent wrinkles and will not irritate your skin.
  4. Unless you have oily skin, moisturize right before bed so that your skin can soak up wetness while you sleep. This is especially important for places with dry skin.
