I am a huge believer in natural, home-made beauty products. They are easy to make, very affordable, and I am 100% sure what I put on my face. Your homemade skincare products allow me to do experiment on what is best for my skin with very little financial resources that I have, I enjoy the freedom in doing it and the process and everything. It’s a big accomplishment to create something from scratch and apply it on your skin and see the desirable result after several attempts.
In this post, I will reveal some techniques that I personally use for my face and body. I don’t have that perfect skin to show off, but what I’m about to share can enhance your beauty and help treat some skin problems that you may be having right now.
Bananas offer countless benefits to our health. It also has many benefits to our skin. There are many ways that you can do to let your skin absorb the greatness of bananas.
The quickest, easiest way is to slightly slice the banana and then put it on your face, let it rest there for 15mn, remove the banana from your face and then leave your face untouched for a couple of hour or overnight, then rinse off.
You will feel your skin is tightened, whitened and your pores shrink. It also helps reducing the dark circles around your eyes. Personally, one mature banana is enough to cover my face, and you can apply it on your face twice a week.
I love turmeric powder though I’m not comfortable with the strong aroma. You can either buy turmeric powder from Orrusey market or Olympic market or you can make it yourself. If you buy from the markets, you may not have the real turmeric powder. I used to buy the powder from Orrusey market. It costs 5000riels per 100 grams and it was not 100% from turmeric. The seller mixed the turmeric powder with other things to gain higher margin.
You can try making your own turmeric powder. All you need are fresh turmeric, time and effort. 1kg of fresh turmeric can produce around 100 grams of turmeric powder. And the process takes about 1 week to make.
First, you need to clean all your fresh turmeric and then slice them in to small pieces and put them under the sun for several days until they are dry. Grind the dried turmeric, and put it in a jar or a bottle.
There are many ways that you can use turmeric to heal your skin. I normally mix 1tbsp of turmeric powder with 1tbsp of honey/2tbsp of milk and apply the mixture on my face and body. Now, when you apply it on your face/body, you will notice the small pieces of turmeric that you can gently rub on your face. What I normally do is massaging my face for a few minutes, leave it for about 10 or 15 minutes and then rinse them off. Your skin would turn yellow for a few hours or even a day, no worry, it will wash off after a few showers.
Turmeric powder will help with scar recovery, whiten your skin tone, reduce acne, and make your skin healthy and fresh. I apply it, my cousin applies it and now my other cousin applies it. It will not give you instant result, but it’s worth your time and effort, I promise.
Pores and blackheads no more! If you ask me to name one thing that could eliminate blackheads, it would be tomatoes.
Tomatoes brighten your skin, make it glow and healthy. Simply slice tomato, and put in on your nose or T-zone or the entire face, leave it for 15 minutes and rinse off. It’s super easy and effective. I told my friend to try the same thing, and she got the best result, and now she even plants a tomato plants to harvest the fruit for her own beauty. Cool, right? I know!
