5 DIY Skin Care Tricks Straight From The Kitchen

When it comes to your beauty regime, the best tonics and potions can be found inside your kitchen—the place where you can weave magic… and they can be used to take care of the largest organ of your body—your skin. But it is also a big investment, so make sure to invest carefully.

Beauty maybe skin deep but there is something enticing about a healthy glowing skin that reflects a body well-fed and a life well-led. Natural foods fuel your body, both internally and externally. So, here are a handful of DIY beauty hacks straight from your granny’s kitchen that will keep up your natural glow. Treat yourself with some amazing natural beauty products and unlock the secrets to natural, radiant beauty.


1. Lemon Juice

A potent ingredient in your kitchen, lemon has anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant properties. The perfect source of VitaminC to get rid of your dark knees and elbows, it lightens the skin and removes dead skin cells. Mixing it with a little turmeric and honey and applying it as a face mask can brighten your face. If this is too much for you to grasp at one go, you can always rely on products like the Skin Republic 2-Step Brightening Vitamin C + Collagen Face Mask with an enhancing serum that removes dirt from the deep layers of your skin and makes your face gleam.


2. Egg White

One of the best beauty hacks, the sticky part of the egg white works as a magic serum for your face. Scraping out a small amount of membrane and applying it on your face can reduce all your fine lines and wrinkles and make your skin look smoother than ever. Egg whites are loaded with collagen and are essential to support the structure of your skin. Egg whites tighten your skin and make the pores less susceptible to clogging with blackheads and dirt. The qualities of egg white can also be found in products like L'Oreal Collagen Wrinkle De-Crease Night Cream that contain collagen and ply your skin with moisture to eliminate wrinkles. The GOSH Primer Plus Pore and Wrinkle Minimizer is another product that significantly reduces the appearance of vertical lines after six weeks of usage.


3. Honey

A miracle ingredient, honey addresses many skin concerns. It is a naturally hydrating, anti-bacterial and an anti-inflammatory substance that minimizes pimples and soothes skin irritation. It has enzymes that act as a natural exfoliator. Applying a thin layer of honey two to three times a week can make your skin incredibly soft. A honey mask can boost the moisture levels of your skin and increases your skin’s moisture retention capabilities. However, if you cannot get hold of pure honey, L'Oreal Revitalift Day Cream will do the job for you. It reduces the visibility of wrinkles and firms your skin. Its intensive formula stimulates skin regeneration as well. The Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Radiance Day Cream, which is formulated with a SPF15 UV,is also perfect for dry, dull or sensitive skin. It has natural soothers like cucumber oil and marshmallow extracts to ensure your skin is protected.


4. Coconut Oil

A natural cleanser for your teeth, coconut oil is also a natural cleanser for your skin. Not only is the oil a skin hydrating agent, it is also a nourishing potion that stimulates hair growth. It serves as an excellent make-up remover. This phenomenal oil can organically remove the toughest make-up and ensure your skin remains soft. It can make even the most waterproof mascara melt away while it cleans your eyes in an organic way. The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water can act as an alternative all-in-one cleanser for your eyes, face, and lips. It removes your daily makeup with ease and soothes your skin. The GOSH Donoderm Cleansing Mousse is another magic product that regulates sebum secretion and helps you get makeup and dirt easily off your face.


5. Turmeric

An anti-aging remedy and an antibacterial powerhouse, turmeric reduces excess sebum and leaves your skin brightened, super radiant, and glowing. Applying a turmeric and milk facemask once or twice a week leaves you with a gleaming look. An anti-face tan mask can also be made using turmeric, honey, and dried orange peels. Mixing it with ground wheat husk can turn it into a chemical-free face scrub. Enough of your granny’s tricks? Try the Skin Republic Gold Hydrogel Face Mask Sheet instead and hydrate your skin with minerals and plant extracts, or apply the Skin Republic Platinum Lift Face Mask to stimulate, firm and lift your skin.


Taking care of your skin is a great responsibility. Make sure you do it well.
