10 Natural Skincare Remedies

Did you know that skincare has existed as far back as ancient Egypt? It is a timeless practice that is constantly evolving as new science and technology are discovered. Today skincare products are far more advanced than what they were in ancient times, but it still boils down to the same thing: taking care of your skin.

We all have different skin types and issues that we want to address with skincare. Skincare can be expensive if you buy products from a dermatologist or a skincare specialist. If you’re on a budget, there are some things that will help skincare without spending too much money! Here at 10 Natural Remedies for skincare.

Milk: Milk cleanses your face of impurities and helps moisturise at the same time. The lactic acid in milk works as an exfoliant without being too harsh on the skin. Milk also has Vitamin D which is great for skincare!

Egg: Some people swear by the power of eggs in skincare. The egg white will cleanse your face and tighten pores, while the yolk helps moisturise. Let the egg sit on your face for 10 minutes before washing it off with cold water to lock in moisture!

Egg whites are high in protein and essential amino acids making them perfect for hair masks. 

“There are no conclusive scientific studies that suggest egg whites can make hair stronger when used alone, but there is a tonne of accounts from people who have experienced stronger hair after using egg white masks” note the protein experts from Iconic Lifestyle.

Combining egg whites with other ingredients like castor oil, honey, banana, yoghurt or apple cider vinegar can make a hair mask perfect for treating split ends or dry hair.

Honey: Honey is a skincare wonder product because it holds so many skincare benefits at once. 

“It’s antibacterial, anti-fungal, an antioxidant, and full of vitamins essential for skincare health,” says natural remedy expert Elisabeth from Live by Your Codes

Just mix some honey with natural yogurt (about 1 tablespoon of each) and massage into your face like you would an exfoliating scrub. Let it set for 5 – 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water!

Oats: Oats are skincare superstars because they can help care for many skin issues including acne, dry skin, sunburns, and eczema. Oatmeal baths are a great skincare remedy to try, they are super gentle and can provide relief to skin irritation fast. Just boil some oats in your skincare bathtub and relax for 20 minutes while the heat helps open up pores. Then give yourself a good rinse to get all of that gunky goodness off your skin… This skincare remedy is especially helpful if you have a skincare product with retinol or AHA. These skincare ingredients can be a little harsh on the skin in high concentrations so an oatmeal skincare bath will help balance your skincare routine.

Aloe Vera: Aloe is a skincare miracle! It’s amazing at skincare hydration, healing wounds and scars, preventing wrinkles, and brightening. 

“Aloe vera is fantastic for sunburn because it contains aloin which is a natural compound that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits,” says the plant experts from The Grass Bros

Blend the inside of a fresh aloe plant and mix with your favourite skincare lotion. Apply it to your face for instant moisture!

Coconut oil: Coconut oil is amazing because it has skincare benefits for just about any problem you’re having on your skin. Coconut oil is moisturising and has antimicrobial properties that can be effective at killing bacteria and fungi.

Sugar: Exfoliating is a great way to give your skin a new fresh look and unclog pores. When you exfoliate you are sloughing away all of the dead skin cells that are hanging out on your face and clogging up pores. This will give you glowing skin without having to spend hundreds of dollars at a spa! There are so many skin care scrubs available in stores, but it’s really easy to make your own at home by mixing brown sugar or salt with skincare cream. Slather on and massage your face or body with small circular motions then rinse off for smooth, glowy skin.

Baking Soda: For acne, baking soda is a skincare money saver that will help balance skincare complexion. Baking soda can be used as an exfoliating scrub, brightening mask or even a fake tan remover. You can mix it with lotion, body wash or even water depending on what you want to achieve.

Grape Seed Oil: Grapeseed oil is an incredible moisturiser and can be used on your eyebrows and hair to help it grow long and strong. Grapeseed oil is super cheap and has a subtle smell making it perfect to use as part of your daily skin and hair care routine. 

The opportunities are endless for effective and natural skincare remedies. Natural remedies are cost-effective and more gentle on your skin than most store-bought skincare products. Give them a try and let us know how they work for you.
