Easy home remedies without any cost
By Tania Arora, Staff Writer
There are many different skin care rituals for every skin type, and on top of that, one’s skin care routine should depend on the season. For instance, your summer products might not be the same as your winter products, as the cold air tends to dry skin out. The hotter months are about protecting your skin from grease and oil buildup, whereas the goal of the colder season is to save your skin from completely drying out (while also including sun protection).
We spend so much on skincare products, which honestly have become too expensive now because areas of skincare research have expanded, and certain companies target specific epidermal layers and parts of the body. This winter, instead of spending your hard-earned money on expensive creams that may or may not work, why not try some products that are cheap, easy to use, and are probably sitting in your kitchen as you read this?
A container lies in the refrigerator of almost every household. Yogurt is known to contain lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid that helps to dissolve dead skin. The greasy properties make the skin rich in moisture while adding a glow to it. Yogurt helps in preventing breakouts, and it also clears those fine lines and wrinkles. Next time, if you cannot eat the whole tub, you know what to do with what’s leftover.
This is something my mom has been making me use since I was a kid. Sharing the benefits of the oil makes me feel nostalgic. I cannot emphasize enough the wonders that coconut oil does to your skin. I used to keep it on my bedside and just put a couple of drops on my skin, massage it, and proceed with my beauty sleep. The fatty acid content of the ingredient flows deep into the layers of your skin and locks in the hydration.
Yes, it is too sweet and sticky and might feel irritating when you touch it, but the properties of honey are the sweetest for your skin. Acne, eczema, and psoriasis can be treated with honey. It balances out the bacteria on your skin and protects you from any challenges that could cause further damage. It is well known for speeding up the healing process and building new layers of skin.
Next time you run out of any products or are too broke to buy more, just pick these things up from the kitchen and whip up the recipe for a successful self-care day.
