Natural cosmetic, little and simple home remedies against dull skin

Carrot, green tea, rooibos and sugar, here are the allies for a luminous skin, able to counteract dull skin but also wrinkles and acne!
Tiredness, anxiety and insomnia, here are some causes of a dull skin. But there are some very effective remedies for a bright skin, without dark spots and that looks rejuvenated. And these remedies come directly ... from the kitchen! Let’s see how to prepare at home with the ingredients that are available or that can be easily found at the supermarket powerful beauty cosmetics, suitable both for young skin and mature skin with wrinkles.

Carrot

Rinse two carrots and remove the ending parts. Blend the carrots in the blender. Add two tablespoons of yogurt and, if you have it at home, a teaspoon of argan oil. Apply the mask on cleaned face for 15 minutes, then wash the face. Carrots bring vitamin C, with a well demonstrated antiaging and lightening action, also able to counteract dark spots (Al-Niaimi et al, J Clin Aesthet Dermatol., 2017). In carrots we find another interesting substance able to fight dark spots, the beta carotene (Kat et al, Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol, 2002).

Sugar

Mix two tablespoons of sugar, you can use white or whole cane sugar, the last even better, a teaspoon of lemon juice and a tablespoon of a plant based oil you have at home. In general, you can use any type of plant based oil but be careful with olive oil. Topical applications of olive oil, indeed, have shown to damage the skin barrier by worsening, if already present, or causing the atopic dermatitis (Danby et al, Pediatr Dermatol, 2013). On the contrary, safe and able to improve the hydration of the skin are other plant based oils that you can commonly find in your kitchen such as sunflower oil or sesame oil, that is also anti inflammatory (Lin et al, Int J Mol Sci, 2018). Massage the scrub on the face for a couple of minutes with slow and circular movements, then rinse with abundant lukewarm water and finally dry the skin with a towel. This scrub is really a regenerating cuddle for the skin, indeed, the sugar contains glycolic acid, a useful substance against skin spots and photoaging (Soleymani et al, J Clin Aesthet Dermatol, 2018).

Green tea and rooibos tea

Here are two healthy herbal teas that are very easy to find at the supermarket and that may become powerful cosmetics for the skin. When you drink these two teas try to save a small glass, soak a cotton pad and pass it on the face as a tonic! Rooibos tea has a deep antioxidant action, very appreciated to counteract the UV damages and the aging processes (Gerber et al, Pharmacogn Mag, 2015). Also green tea acts by counteracting the damages of free radicals with an antiaging effect, moreover, it is useful also for young and acne prone skin because it is anti inflammatory and plays a role in balancing the sebum production (Katiyar et al, Curr Drug Targets Immune Endocr Metabol Disord, 2003 – Mahmood et al, Hippokratia, 2013)
