While it’s really not possible to have smooth and perfect skin overnight, there are a few techniques and tricks you can try to make your skin glow and look healthy.
Secret #1: One Minute to Glowing Skin
Most people (men and women) wash their face for no more than a few seconds. Try using a timer to clean your skin. Time it for 60 seconds, which should be enough to get rid of dirt, excess sebum, bacteria, makeup and dead skin. Use natural beauty products when washing your face because these things contain vitamins and other nutrients that will help the skin stay healthy. You’ll notice right after the first 1-minute wash that your skin’s texture has improved and it’ll look healthier and cleaner.
If you have puffiness and inflammation, try applying an ice cube on the affected areas for one minute. The coldness will constrict blood vessels and lower the inflammation. If you have a pimple, the ice will shrink it.
For puffy eyes and cheeks, try placing liquid green tea in a bag of ice and place it over your skin. Doing so will de-puff your eyes or any part of your face that looks puffy. The caffeine in the tea as well as the cold will lower water retention.
Secret #2: Five Minutes to Gorgeous Skin
Apply a natural exfoliating mask and leave it on your skin for at least 5 minutes. You can try using honey, yogurt and other ingredients you can easily find in your kitchen. This simple at-home facial routine can get rid of dead skin cells and fight blemishes in the skin so you will have smooth, healthy and glowing skin.
Another technique you can try to achieve great-looking skin in just a few minutes is a facial steam. You can try the herbal laxative called Swiss Kriss, towel and a bowl of hot water. Place 2 teaspoons of the Swiss Kriss flakes into a bowl of water and then soak the towel in the solution. Then place the towel on your face for a couple of minutes at a time, and re-soak if it is already getting cold. This technique will improve blood circulation on your face and at the same time, eliminate blemishes due to the clarifying herbs contained in the product.
As you can see, you don’t have to spend a fortune on beauty treatments. You can help make your skin look healthy and blemish-free using only natural products and kitchen ingredients. Just do this on a regular basis – make it a part of your daily routine – so that you will get long-lasting results.
In addition, don’t forget to drink plenty of water, eat nutritious foods, and get enough sleep every night. Doing all these things will most certainly help you achieve your skin care goals.
