We all want a spa moment but we might not exactly afford it. Learn easy and affordable ways of taking care of your skin. Your face is the most sensitive of all plus it is what people see first, so you want to keep it radiant. Well, I have a few tips up my sleeve and they’ll fit perfectly in your pocket. You have probably been told you need to treat your face every once in a while, with this new tip you can do it every once a week
You need to cleanse, just to get rid of all dust and dirt that accumulates on the surface of your skin. So squeeze a fresh orange and use the orange juice to massage your face in anti clockwise patterns. Orange juice has vitamin C that makes it difficult for germs to survive. Leave it on for five minutes tops then rinse with warm water.
You need smooth skin, everyone wants smooth skin . Take 2 tablespoons of maize flour and mix with just about the same amount of water. It should form a paste, and then use this to scrub your face still in an anti clockwise pattern. Be tender; don’t scrub like sand paper, apart from smoothing it opens up your pores and this is where most build up of germs take place. After scrubbing for at least 2 minutes, rinse with warm water.
Now boil water make sure it is really hot, pour it in a bowl. You are free to throw in lemon slices or parsley then dip your head to steam your face and cover with a towel so that steam does not escape. Steaming is perfect, it is a detox and it will also clear out your nasal cavity. If you steam a lot and eat citrus fruits, Mr. Common cold will never come visiting. Steam should have a burning sensation on your face and you can catch a few cold breaths if it gets too hot. Steam for at least five minutes then rinse with warm water.
You feel good already, right? Now you need to mask, and what better way than egg whites. Drill a small hole into an egg and get just the white. Spread it evenly over your face and let it dry. You can go around doing other stuff and rinse with warm water after a minimum of 10 minutes. Masking usually lets your skin absorb beneficial nutrients and protect it from build up again. Your face looks like a million bob, right?
Now you can use what you normally use on your face, I’m a diehard Vaseline girl. When you wake up every morning, mix one tablespoon of honey with one table spoon of fresh lemon juice. Spread this on your face and rinse after 5 minutes. This will maintain your skin throughout the day. In the evenings just rinse your face, avoid washing with soap; if you wear makeup, use the honey and lemon to clean out the makeup before rinsing. If you have an acne problem, guess what, I do too, so this will totally sort you out. It will clear the acne and the daily honey and lemon mask will slowly work on the dark spots, give it a few weeks.
The best part about it is that it is all natural, even if you feel it doesn’t work, at least it has no side effects either. Now sit down with your calculator, did you use more than a hundred bob? We all got to survive, so bring the spa home. If it isn’t complete let your significant other treat you to a massage. I am no doctor though so this is no bible in case it does not work for you. Drink lots of water and exercise, that, even your doctor will tell you.
