Recipe for Better Skin


Keeping beautiful skin is a major priority for many of us. We are continuously seeking ways to improve our complexion.

However, improving our body's outer texture and tone may not be enough. If we are not selective in how we do this it can be extremely expensive.

However, you don't have to break the bank to improve the condition of your complexion. Time-honored recipes from our grandmothers are inexpensive and fun to make. In addition, knowing which ingredients to look for can help you select commercial products wisely. Keeping skin young looking can be accomplished for pennies a day.

Are you beginning to discern fine lines or wrinkles? Here is a recipe you can make at home. Combine two tablespoons of whole milk with one fresh, whole egg. Beat together until frothy. Apply to your squeaky-clean face. Wait five minutes, and then rinse with lukewarm water. If the outer surface of the body leans toward dryness, follow with a natural, fragrance-free moisturizer.

Do you have oily complexion? This type of condition requires an occasional masque to discourage excess oil, reduce blackheads, and tighten pores. Here is a wonderful treatment for treating this type of body surface. Simply combine two tablespoons of uncooked oatmeal with a bit of chopped parsley, and then blend in one tablespoon of lemon juice, four tablespoons of yogurt, and one teaspoon of olive oil. Apply this combination to your face, avoiding the eyes, and after five minutes rinse with lukewarm water. Your complexion will feel refreshed and clean.

Of course, improving complexion can also result from using brand-name products. Nonetheless, you don't have to purchase the most expensive ones to find mild, gentle formulations appropriate for your personal body care needs. Look for the following ingredients next time you shop:

Copper peptide:
This antioxidant may stimulate the production of elastin and collagen, both of which can help your body to seem firmer and more youthful looking.

Alpha, beta, and poly hydroxyl acids: These help to get rid of dead surface epidermis cells to reveal newer, smoother complexion.

Vitamin C:
This nutrient helps neutralize free radicals that can damage your body surface after being in the sun. Products that contain Vitamin C can also help to lighten brown spots.

You might also consider purchasing a basic exfoliation sponge. These are inexpensive and can be used with the cleanser of your choice. Even better, they can be rinsed and reused. Removing dry, dulling epidermis cells is another step towards a translucent and appealing body. Beware though these things are a safe harbour for all sorts of bacteria so either microwave it often to kill the bacteria or throw it out and buy a new one.

Keeping the body young looking, improving the body's surface, and maintaining the health of your complexion can be easy, provided you choose the right products and even mix up a few concoctions at home. Establish a routine that includes several of these recommendations, and you will be pleased with your healthier, more beautiful skin.
