Creating Skincare products in Your Kitchen

We all want to have beautiful healthy skin, the problem is that the products you can buy are so expensive. If you want to have great looking skin but can’t afford the top products why not make some.This article will give you some tips on improving your skin in the kitchen.

It is hard to believe but there are actually a lot of products that we have in our own kitchen that are great for our skin. The best thing about them is they cost you a fraction of the price of shop bought products and can actually be just as good for your skin. Most of the products you will already have in your cupboards or they can be picked up for a very low price at the supermarket.

If you want to relax you skin then there is a very easy way to do it. Simply put a camomile tea bag and some spearmint in a pan of water and bring to the boil. Once the water has boiled, remove from the heat and place the water in a bowl. Place you your head over the bowl and put a towel over your head to make a tent and keep the vapours in. If you then inhale the vapours coming from the water for around 15 minutes you should find you skin is relaxed and clear.

You can make yourself a great cleanser at home with cider vinegar. Just simply mix one part cider vinegar with 2 parts water and you have your cleanser. To apply it just use a cotton wool ball and dip it in the mixture and then rub across your face. Just continue to apply the cleanser until the cotton wool comes off clean. You will then find you have clean and fresh skin.

You can use coffee grounds as a great exhfoliator and it is really simple to do. Simply make yourself a cup of fresh coffee and use the left over grounds. Just rub them into your face and then rinse off with warm water. You will find this really helps to clean up and close your pores.

If you have tired or slightly puffy eyes you can use cucumber to deflate them. This is an age old trick and is really cheap and easy to do. Just place a slice of cucumber over each eye and lie back and relax for a few minutes. When you are done just throw the cucumber slices away and you will have fresh looking eyes.

The best thing you can use for a body lotion is safflower oil. For your face use a very small amount but you can use more on the rest of your body. You will soon find that you have smooth, soft skin all over your face.

There are plenty of things that you can use from your kitchen cupboards, you just need to do a little research. One of the best things to use is avocado, softened and mixed with a little lemon juice makes a great face mask. There is so much goodness in avocado that you will find a lot of it get absorbs into your skin. Be imaginative and find out the products with the best qualities to use. Remember good skin care does not need to be expensive.
