Oftentimes you can find alternatives to expensive, store-bought skin care items with things you have in your home already. Not only do these natural skin care items promote skin health, but they can save you time and money as well.
Use chilled tea bags to fight tired, puffy eyes. Start by briefly steeping 2 green, black, or chamomile tea bags in hot water for less than a minute. Next, remove the tea bags from the water and chill in a small bowl in the refrigerator. Once chilled, place 1 bag over each closed eyelid. Leave on your lids for 5 to 15 minutes.
Brighten your lips with raspberries and coconut oil. First, warm 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a small saucepan on low heat until it liquefies. Next, remove from heat and add fresh or frozen red raspberries. Mash berries and blend until smooth. Place the mixture in a small glass container and refrigerate until firm. Use clean fingers or a lipgloss brush to smooth over lips. Make a fresh batch every few days for bright and healthy lips.
Get soft skin with a blend of pomegranate, raspberry, and sweet almond oil. Mix together equal parts pomegranate seed oil, raspberry seed oil, and sweet almond oil. This antioxidant-rich mixture will naturally leave your skin hydrated and glowing. Apply after cleansing or after putting on makeup. Apply by placing 3 to 6 drops of the oil mixture in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together to warm the oils. Then, with your fingertips gently press the warm oil into dry areas of your face or areas where you have fine lines and wrinkles.
Hydrate your skin with coconut water. Start your morning with a glass of fresh unsweetened coconut water and follow up throughout the day by drinking filtered water. At meals, include skin-hydrating foods such as wild salmon, avocado, olives, and coconut.
Eat wild salmon to prevent sun damage. In addition to being hydrating, salmon helps your skin in other ways. Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant that helps protect skin from the harmful effects of UVA sun damage, acting almost like an internal sunblock. This antioxidant is found in seafoods such as salmon, krill, shrimp, lobster, crabs, and crayfish, as well as in supplement form. Enjoying several servings per week of wild salmon and seafood and consider taking a supplement every day—especially during sunny times of the year—can help prevent skin damage. Of course, you’ll want to continue to use sunscreen as well.
