These days, many people rely on facelifts to get rid of lines and wrinkles or microdermabrasion to perfect their complexion. Both surgical and non-surgical treatments are widely available, but there are other ways to get a radiant glow – naturally.
Make your own facemask
With so many lotions and potions lining the shelves it can be easy to spend a fortune on expensive beauty products. This can leave you short of pocket, however, so why not whip up your own organic facemasks instead and invite your friends round for a pamper session? There are many recipes you can try, but the mashed banana and oat variety will soften and exfoliate your skin at the same time.
Raid your kitchen cupboards
If you’re looking for a long-lasting moisturiser than will nourish and condition your skin, olive oil is ideal. It’s used throughout the world to combat spots, stretch marks and frown lines, so raid your kitchen cupboards and see what you can find. If you don’t have any oil, butter is a great alternative for dry or flaky skin but you might have to warm it up slightly before applying. Combine it with sugar, salt of baking powder for a natural exfoliating product and you’ll feel great it no time!
Use tea to combat puffiness
Most of us enjoy a hot brew in the morning, but did you know tea is also good for your eyes? That’s right, refrigerated tea bags are thought to cool and soothe the skin and are believed to get rid of any puffiness you may be experiencing. The tannin in black tea is said to drain excess fluid while the anti-inflammatory properties of camomile can leave you fresh faced, so it’s worth experimenting if you have the time. Hate tea? Then a few slices of cucumber can work just as well.
Stay out of the sun
With summer rapidly approaching, many people will head outside in the hope of getting a tan. Sure, a bit of colour can be attractive, but it’s essential to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays. You don’t want to end up with lines, wrinkles or even skin cancer when you’re older so whack on some cream with a high SPF factor and cover up when possible. If you want to improve your pale complexion without putting yourself at risk, simply mix loose mineral powder with organic sun cream and rub it over your face.
As the warm spell gets nearer, many people will opt for liposuction or a breast enlargement to improve the chest area, but you’ll have the secrets to look good naturally.
