Adorable Solutions From Your Kitchen To Rejuvenate Your Skin
Loaded with assorted vitamins and minerals as well as alpha hydroxy acids, papaya makes a wonderful solution for dull skin. And the good news is that you can apply it on your whole body to experience a total rejuvenation. Choose the ripest papaya available to reap its benefits. Mash about 1 cup of extra ripe papaya and mix in ¼ cup honey and ¼ cup milk. Apply this on your skin, starting from the toes in circular motions. Leave on about 20 minutes and wash off with normal water. The dead cells are eliminated and your skin gets a fabulous glow.
Orange peels and orange juice are two great skin rejuvenating ingredients. Packed with vitamin C and citric acid, these work on cleaning, exfoliation, lightening, and tightening the skin, leaving it rejuvenated and refreshed. Mix in ½ a cup of orange juice to ¼ cup powdered citrus peel to make a coarse paste. If you have a dry skin, ensure that you mix in honey and milk in equal proportion to the citrus mixture while for an oily skin, gram flour and turmeric in 1:1 ration would be great.
Are the blemishes troubling you? Try this vitamin B6 rich banana mash to bid adieu to the blemishes, improve the skin suppleness and elasticity, and give it a fresher look. This one is only for your face and neck. Mash a 6 inch overripe banana with 2 tsp honey and ½ a teaspoon coconut oil. Apply on your face and neck and leave for 20 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water for a rejuvenated skin.
Free radicals are one of the major culprits behind skin damages. Avert the damages and treat your skin with a good dose of antioxidants with the lycopene rich tomatoes. Mix 1 cup of tomato juice with ¼ cup lemon juice and ¼ cup milk. Add a couple of drops of olive oil or coconut oil to the mixture. Apply on your skin, right from the foot till you face, in circular motion. Wash off after 15 minutes for a rejuvenated, tighter skin.
