Summer Skin Care With Natural Masks

Natural Skin Care Tips

Genetic factors, oily skin and hormone changes are all major causes of acne. Intensive skin care during summer is different than what it is in other seasons. You should protect your skin against sun-rays and moisturize it regularly. Skin is usually exhausted during summer; the rising temperature helps secretion of oil for those who have oily skin. With sweat and dust, blisters are more likely to appear on the skin. Constantly taking good care of your skin by cleaning and applying moisturizers and masks could be the best skin care solution.

Sweet potato mask for dry skin

Steam sweet potato and mash it well with honey very well. Then add milk and ginger. Mix all ingredients until you get a dough. Apply the mask on your face and neck for 20 to 25 minutes. Then rinse it with warm water. This mask will moisturize and protect your skin from wrinkles. You can store the rest of the mask in the fridge to use it later.

Yeast and honey mask for all skin types

2 tsp. yeast
1 tsp. sweet almond oil (for dry skin)
3 drops of lemon juice (for oily skin)

Mix honey with yeast in warm water. Apply the mixture to your face except for your eyes for 30 minutes then rinse your face with warm water. Repeat the mask twice a week until your skin gets better. Then make it once a week. Make sure to rinse your face before applying the mask and moisturize your skin with a cream after every mask. 

Orange and oat mask for oily skin

2 tsp. fresh orange juice
3 tsp. oats
1 tsp. white honey
1 tsp. egg whites

Mix all ingredients together. Then apply the mixture on your face and leave it to dry completely. Start massaging your skin in round motion. Then rinse your face and continue peeling. You can repeat the mask once a week.

Skin Care Tips For Winter

Hydration, Sun Screen Key Objectives

Harsh winds and central heating pull the moisture from our skin, leaving us prone to wrinkles. As the weather gets worse, here are some tips to protect your skin from the winter elements:

1. Moisturize: Our skin’s barrier function is less effective in winter which makes it more challenging to keep skin hydrated. To combat water loss, look for natural moisturizers that have the ability to hold and attract water in the skin.

2. Drink Warm Water: Water helps plump up the skin but a cold glass from the tap just isn’t that appealing if it’s cold outside. Not surprising then that, during winter, we tend to drink much less than the recommended daily 1.6 litres of fluid for women and two liters for men. Warm water is a great hydrator but if you can’t stomach it, drink white tea instead. Studies have shown that extracts in white tea strengthen the skin’s elastin and collagen content.

3. Avoid Long, Hot Showers: There’s nothing nicer than languishing in a steamy shower but your skin won’t like it. Long, hot baths and showers strip the skin of its protective oils, allowing moisture to escape. Keep showers short and warm, not hot, and as soon as you step out of the steam, while your skin is still damp and pores open, apply moisturizer. Put your moisturizer in a sink of hot water while you’re showering. It will feel warm and soothing as applied and it also will be absorbed more easily.

4. Sunscreen: UV rays are still a factor in winter, especially with snow around to reflect light. Use a broad spectrum SPF no lower than SPF25 to protect against rays.”

5. Oatmeal Therapy: Dry skin can feel itchy but scratching can damage skin and encourage fine lines to form into deeper wrinkles. Colloidal Oatmeal has an ­anti-itch, anti-inflammatory and ultra-hydrating action on the skin. The beta gluten in oatmeal leaves skin feeling like satin. Products are available that contain colloidal oatmeal. Or make your own.

6. Extra Eye Care: The fine skin around the eyes can get extra dry and sore in winter, leading to deepened crow’s feet. As always, pay special attention to this region of your face with cleansers, moisturizers and serums. Apply and remove lotions and makeup gently so as to avoid stretching this sensitive skin.

7. Wrap-Up To Avoid Moisture Loss: It sounds obvious but wearing scarves, hats and earmuffs will help avoid moisture loss. Go easy on exfoliant. We all know it’s essential to exfoliate to remove dead skin cells, which allows moisturizer to penetrate deeper but go easy in winter. Excess exfoliation damages the natural hydro-lipidic barrier, which can promote dehydration.

8. Good Fats: Fats are essential for healthy and nourished skin, but be sure to choose healthy (mono-unsaturated) ­varieties. Fats in nuts and avocados are great for a healthy complexion. They have antioxidants such as vitamin E and selenium.
