Beautiful skin is one of the most attractive indicators of youth. Good sleep, plenty of water and stress free life are some of the most basic and important ingredients of youthful and beautiful appearance. And yes, healthy eating is crucial!
Our face and our hands are two particularly important (and visible to everyone) areas on our body that reflect our overall health and well being.
We will talk about 3 simple, yet great, secrets on how to keep the skin of our face, hands and the whole body beautiful and healthy:
1. Morning beauty ritual for your FACE
Some people love to use ice cubes on their face every morning to freshen and rejuvenate the skin. This ritual is great, but it can be a little harsh, especially for sensitive and redness prone skin. So, here is an alternative way to do it: simply wipe your face in the morning with cold raw milk. You can also mix the milk with cucumber juice and wipe your face with it using a cotton ball. Rinse your face with cold water once you are done. Not only it will instantly freshen your face, but also, it will help cleanse your skin and improve your skin tone, leaving your face extremely soft, glowing and fresh.
2. Use coffee for the beauty of your HANDS
Coffee that you drink every day can be used for skin care. Why coffee? Well, coffee grounds are a natural exfoliate. Exfoliation removes dead, dry skin cells from skin surface and boosts natural skin renewal process, making your skin look healthy and glowing.
Here is a good beauty recipe: mix coffee grounds (from your morning coffee) with olive oil (or any other oil of your choice; avoid using petroleum based oils and give your preference to natural ingredients) and massage your hands with this homemade hand scrub for a couple of minutes, use the same circular motions as those you do while applying your hand cream. Rinse your hands with lukewarm water. Your hands will feel very soft and tender. If you do this twice a week, your hands will look wonderful!
3. Wonderful natural BODY scrub recipe
Try this simple, wonderful, homemade body scrub: mix 2 tablespoons of used coffee grounds, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 4 tablespoons of olive oil. Massage your body with this scrub while in the shower, applying it in circular motions; especially concentrate on the areas with cellulite, on your legs and on dry areas of your body. You will notice an amazing difference on how this scrub will make your skin look and feel – soft, tender and velvety! I hope you find these natural beauty secrets useful.
