Tricks to Cleansing, toning and moisturising naturally

Most of us know the key to healthy skin to be a complete skincare regime, and most experts will tell you to follow a cleansing-toning-moisturising routine. While you can just go and buy online a complete set of cleanser, toner and moisturiser, it is advisable that you use natural products and ingredients for cleansing. Here’s a quick take on how you can maintain the best skincare regime at home without spending on expensive cosmetics.

Cleansing: Most commercial cleansers have surfactants and emulsifiers, and obviously you must try to ensure best for your skin. The first thing that you must do after a long day is to apply warm water on the face with the help of cotton balls. This will remove the initial dirt and open the pores for further cleansing. For deep cleansing of the face, you can try mashed papaya, ripe banana, lemon or even clay. Papaya is known to be good for dry skin, while clay is good for dry skin cleaning. Cucumber water and extracts are also known to be great for mild cleansing. For weekly scrubbing and cleansing, you can try a mixture of gram flour and honey for that smoothened skin.

Toning: As you cannot stop the clock of aging, you need to care for the skin, so that wrinkles are at bay. The simplest toner you can make at home is a mixture of egg white and honey. Just mix one egg white and one teaspoon of honey and apply the mask on the face for at least twenty minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water for best results. Also, you can mix cucumber juice and yoghurt in equal quantities and use the mixture as an astringent that works wonders. Avoid the areas near your eyes and lips.

Moisturising: The simplest moisturiser that you can find in your home is honey. Mix honey and olive oil in equal proportions and massage your face in upwards direction in small circles. As a smart alternative to olive oil, you can use coconut oil or almond oil. Olive oil works aptly for dry and oily skin in equal measure, and you will love the soft and supple skin in the morning. Among the other moisturisers that you can use for natural moisturising is yoghurt, but since you need to wash it after some time, you can skip using it every day.

As you can see that most of the ingredients used above are what you will get at home easily, and maintaining a natural regime is not that of a tough job. The natural ingredients are not only safe, but you can be sure that your skin is not exposed to any harmful chemicals in the name of skincare.

    I haven’t used honey! I guess I should get some more and try it, since most of my moisturisers aren’t working anymore. There’s just no moisture in the air for it to trap. x.x I used to use yoghurt, but the smell was a little too much for me…

    Olive oil is what’s in most generic brown-bottle skin oils. I found one at Walgreens a long while back, only 2 or 3 fl. ounces for some ridiculous price, $5 or so. Ingredients? 100% olive oil! Olive oil is a big counterfeit trade, and most olive oils aren’t pure olive oil, but I doubt what’s in that bottle is pure either. Olive oil can be gotten in the states in larger bottles for around $9, and sometimes go buy-one-get-one-free in some stores. There’s no reason to pay so much for a label! And it *works*. Ever meet a pastry chef with rough hands? Nope! All those oils in the breads and cookies, hand-kneaded, keep the skin soft all day long!

      BebeTaian, I’m sorry your moisturizers aren’t working anymore, how annoying. Give honey a go, hopefully it will help.

      And I agree about olive oil. It’s a great oil, but it’s hard to know how pure it is and some people sell it at outrageous prices. My grandma sometimes buys a few bottles from a friend of hers who’s a farmer. It’s pure EVOO, cheap, delicious to eat and great to pamper skin with.

    I prefer EVOO to coconut oil now for regular use. I still use my coconut oil because I have a good 50 oz left haha. I’ve never tried cucumbers, papayas, bananas, lemons, eggs, or clay. I want to try papaya though. 😀 I already have masks I buy so I don’t make my own very often.

      Oh, and why I prefer EVOO: it is liquid form at room temperature where as my coconut oil is solid and I have to warm it up = one extra step. EVOO also feels lighter on my skin and I don’t have to use a cleanser right after unlike coconut oil.

      • beautifulwithbrains says

        Janessa, doing an extra step can be very annoying at times. And I agree about it feeling lighter and thus nicer to use. EVOO is actually my fave oil, but then being Italian, I’m probably biased. We use it for everything here lol.

        I do prefer to buy my cosmetics, but I think it’s nice to make your own every now and then.
