Oatmeal is healthy for your skin and to fuel your body it seems. Oats are believed to have healing properties. Use 1/3 of a cup of oats and 1/2 a cup of hot water with 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt, an egg white, and 2 tablespoons of honey. Honey also soothes and repairs the skin whereas the egg white tightens and shrinks those large pores. Place a thin layer of the mixture onto your skin and let sit for around 20 minutes- you will see results instantly.
Whole-egg mayonnaise can be equivalent to an expensive moisturizer. It is extra beneficial if it is straight from the fridge and cooled, the cooling properties are good for your pores and skin. Spread the mayonnaise on your face and leave for 20 minutes. Wash off with cool water and your face will feel silky soft.
Plain yogurt is great for the gut- filled with probiotics. However, it is also a fabulous treat for your skin. Yogurt tightens and cleanses the skin, shrinking those annoying pores. You can slather just the yogurt on or make a fresh face mask. Mix 1 teaspoon of yogurt, orange juice from 1/4th, add a touch of pulp, and 1 teaspoon of aloe. Let the mask sink into your pores for at least 10 minutes before removing it.
Lemon does wonders for the skin as it contains AHAs and BHAs which are acids that clear dead skin, assist with blackheads, discoloration, and other blemishes. Some people mix lemon juice with 1/4 cup of olive or almond oil, however, if you have oily skin steer clear from this method. another method is to mix it with 1 tablespoon of honey and apply it to your skin for 15 minutes to see maximum effects. The lemon and honey truly complement one another.
If you have dry skin utilize the yolk, however, if you have oily skin the white is for you. You can add the egg white to your lemon and honey mixture mentioned previously. However, if you have normal skin you can use the entire egg and add the lemon and honey- you will be left feeling revitalized and with a glassy and fresh appearance. The great thing is you can add what you like depending on your issue. Oatmeal can too be added to the mixture and in some cases cinnamon.
