1. ASPIRIN AND HONEY
You’ve got acne, your skin’s irritated, dull looking after the winter and now stuck at home. What are you supposed to do?
Aspirin and honey reduce the acne and get rid of your red irritated skin in just 10 minutes. Aspirin targets the inflammation and honey has anti-microbial properties, so it’ll attack your acne.
DIRECTIONS: • First, clean your skin with toner. You need to open your pores for this to work properly. • Then, crush an aspirin and mix it with a small amount of toner so you get a paste. Apply the paste directly to the acne and leave it there for 5 minutes. When you’re done, wash your face and dab honey on any spots you see. Rinse your face after 10 minutes.
2. LEMON SUGAR SCRUB
Don’t have any honey laying around to get rid of your acne?
That’s OK. Try this trick with lemon and sugar.
Lemons are perfect for removing dirt and bacteria from your face. They just need a little bit of help from an exfoliator. In this case, our exfoliator is sugar.
Just cut a lemon in half and sprinkle sugar on the cut half. Rub it on your face every night. You’ll remove dead skin and make your skin less oily.
3. MOISTURIZE THE RIGHT WAY
The best way to moisturize your skin is to first soak in a bath until your fingers almost turn prune-like. Pat yourself dry and apply moisturizer immediately.
You can use a greasy moisturizer like coconut oil, just make sure to put on sheets and pyjamas that you don’t much care about. If you don’t need a heavy-duty moisturizer, a creamy lotion will be fine.
If you’ve got cracked and dry heels, wear a pair of socks over the layer of moisturizser.
4. UNEVEN PIGMENT
Your skin’s tone is uneven for whatever reason (read: you smoke, got too much sun, or haven’t been drinking enough water). This will help even out your skin tone. No pore-clogging makeup required.
All you need is a lemon, 1 cup of white sugar, and a tablespoon of coconut oil.
This takes the previous skin hack just a tiny step further. But we’re going to do things slightly different this time around.
Again, cut the lemon in half. This time though, squeeze the juice into a small bowl. Then rub your face with the exposed part of the lemon.
Add the sugar to the bowl of lemon juice and mix it together. Do NOT let it dissolve in it. Rub the mixture on your face to exfoliate your skin. Rinse. Pat your face dry and rub coconut oil into your skin.
5. DRY, ITCHY SKIN
If you’ve got dry, itchy skin, there’s no need to go any further than your refrigerator. You’ve got one of the best “lotions” you could ask for sitting in it – milk. Milk contains lactic acid which helps remove dead skin cells. It also contains two enzymes (protease and lipase) to help break down impurities.
To help heal your dry, itchy skin, simply soak a rag in cold milk and put it on the irritated area for 5 minutes.
Eat it down to the rind and then rub the rind all over your dry skin.
6. REDUCE REDNESS
To reduce redness, just mix ¼ teaspoon of sea salt with one cup of warm water. Dip a cotton ball in the solution and put it on the red marks.
The spots will probably be back the next day, but it’s a good trick to use if you need to take pictures.
For Additional Help… They say beauty starts from the inside. And while they’re talking about something entirely different, they’re right. Plump, fresh-looking skin can be achieved by making sure you’re drinking enough water each day.
