Of course, we love how our skin can react instantly to certain products. But most natural remedies take time to show their impressive results, but there are a few skincare tricks that make your day brighter! While make-up can always come to the rescue for special events, clean and fresh skin is always beautiful to work on!
Some of us have had experiences in the past of not getting enough sleep at night and waking up with dull and tired skin right on the day of an important event! These are some tried and tested skincare tricks that have worked on some beauty enthusiasts.
TRICK 1 – SCRUB NATURALLY
Scrubbing your skin can help remove all the dead and dull skin. But store-bought scrubs usually do more harm than good. You can make this amazing DIY scrub using fresh and natural ingredients from your kitchen.
HOW TO MAKE WATERMELON SCRUB?
- Combine cold mashed watermelon, milk powder and fresh orange juice in equal quantities.
- Massage your face for 2 minutes with this mixture and wash it off in 10-15 minutes with cold water.
If you have dry skin, you can mix five drops of almond oil/olive oil in this.
Watermelon is very hydrating on your skin and is loaded with vitamins that help your skin behave well. Massaging watermelon juice extract on the face rejuvenates and revitalizes the dull skin.
Milk powder here is a mild exfoliating agent and does its job brilliantly. Milk powder is known to clean your skin thoroughly and leave it clean and refreshed. The healthy fats in powdered milk moisturize dry skin and soothe oily skin. Milk powder also hydrates the skin by increasing its water retention capacity. Water retention is something you need on a dull skin day.
Fresh Orange juice is love! The vitamin C content instantly gives you a softer, smoother skin that is visibly well textured.
TRICK 2 – MASSAGING YOUR SKIN
Massaging your skin increases blood flow that plumps up slack skin and adds vitality. This DIY massage paste is full of skin-loving ingredients for instant results.
HOW TO MAKE DIY MASSAGE PASTE
- Mix Olive oil or Almond oil, Amla Juice and Ground Oats in a paste form.
- Massage your skin for 15 minutes
- Wash it off with cold buttermilk, leave it on for 10 minutes, and then wash it off with cold water.
The massage with this mixture will plump up your skin (be it oily or dry) and bring a glow to your skin. Olive or Almond Oil is suitable for all skin types and is excellent for massage. They spread well and absorb into your skin without any greasiness. The vitamins and nutrients present are well delivered because of their absorbent qualities.
Amla juice is again a high dose of Vitamin C that rejuvenates your dull skin, leaving it soft and fresh. Ground oats powder acts as a mild scrub, but more than that, it has skin-lightening properties that work like a charm!
TRICK 3 – TRYING AHA MASK
This mask is rich in hydroxy acids that exfoliate the skin wonderfully, leaving it instantly bright and fresh.
HOW TO MAKE AHA MASK
- Mix Mash Apple paste, Cold Curd and two drops of lemon
- Apply and massage on your face for 10 minutes
- Keep for another 15 minutes
- Wash it off with cold water mixed with apple cider vinegar in 3:1 ratio.
This paste is suitable for all skin types.
Note: avoid this skincare trick if your skin is too sensitive. If your skin is dry, add 1 tsp. of honey would be a good idea
Apples are rich in Malic acid, which is excellent for toning your skin. Temporarily, it can shrink pores making your skin look taut. Curd is rich in Lactic acid, promotes brightening and skin toning. Lemon is strong in Citric acid and gives spotless skin.
In addition to the above skincare tricks, you can also perform a 1-minute headstand for an instant better look and feel. The blood rush will make you feel fresh and will also impart glow to your skin. But of course, ensure you either know how to make a headstand or have a trained specialist with you! DO NOT try this on your own it is hazardous—also, patch tests ALL the recipes first to avoid any reactions or allergies.
One last bonus takeaway advice would be to keep drinking water throughout the day. Hydration is vital for good-looking skin. These are the skincare tricks that can do wonders!
