Just try to imagine how great our lives would be if we all had a flawless skin! You wouldn’t have to wake up at 6 AM in the morning to put on makeup and, in the evening, you could jump right into bed. No more cosmetic treatments, no more makeup removal every evening, no more carrying tons of mini-bottles and containers with you in vacation!
Well, the dream is not as impossible as you think. Of course, you will have to maintain a thorough skin care regimen and make smart culinary decisions, but a healthy lifestyle and a few secrets will be enough.
To get you started, we gathered a few tips & tricks that will help you achieve a brighter, healthier skin without using too many cosmetic products.
Use natural products, from your fridge
It may seem weird, but after a short raid in your fridge, you’ll find several natural products that can take care of your skin. Let’s see the most common ones:
- Lemon – the citric acid in the lemon is perfect for removing dead cells and reducing dark spots. Even more, the lemon has bleaching properties, which will make your skin look brighter and cleaner. There are several application methods and you can read all about them here.
- Honey – this ingredient is used for beauty treatments since ancient times. Honey is a natural antibacterial and moisturizer that can keep infections, like acne, off your skin. You have to simply apply a thin layer on your skin and wait for about 10 to 15 minutes. Wash it off with warm water.
Apply gentle facial scrubs
For this, you will need your favorite cleansing product and a specially designed facial cleansing brush that will massage your skin and clean-up your pores. Using gentle massage you activate the nutrients in the skin and remove the dead cells on the surface. The result is a brighter, healthier looking skin that everyone will love!
Take care of your skin during winter times
Each season leaves its mark on our skin but winter is the most difficult of all. Cold temperatures and harsh winds dry the skin and leave it lifeless and tarnished. These effects are more visible on mature skin as there is not enough collagen to fight back.
To repair or better yet prevent all these, you should use a special cream designed to take care of your skin during winter times.
Gather a small collection of light products
Natural ingredients are great for your skin but you can’t use them all the time. This is why it’s best to gather a small collection of skin care products that you know are good for your skin. These may vary according to season and type of skin, but the base will always stay the same. Also, be careful not to fall into the trap of using too many products at once. These can load up the skin and you’ll obtain the exact opposite effect.

In closing, I want to highlight that, with a bit of care and patience our skin can be flawless as well. We don’t actually need tons of makeup to hide our imperfections; we just need better skin care routines and a healthier lifestyle.
