Natural cosmetics Part 5, the kitchen is the best beauty shop

Little beauty cosmetics that you can make at home by using all the ingredients you can find in a kitchen, against eye bags, dull skin or oily skin
SOS dull skin? Or did you wake up this morning with eye bags and you are looking for a fast and efficient remedy? And what about if you have finished the face powder and you have an important date? The solution is often your kitchen that may become an amazing beauty shop by letting you prepare by yourself natural cosmetics without taking care of INCI or irritant substances. Let’s see some ideas.

Cacao and rice starch

The cocoa powder you bought to prepare the cake or the pudding may be really helpful, together with rice starch, in order to create a DIY face powder, light, anti-inflammatory, able to smooth the skin and rebalance the sebum (De Paepe et al, Acta Derm Venereol, 2002). Mix 3 tablespoons of rice starch, 1 tablespoon of white clay and cocoa powder until you’ll reach the desired color. Put the powder in a jar, close it and here you go! To use the face powder you have just to take a small quantity of the cosmetic and apply on face with a powder-puff.

Sesame seeds and oil

These ingredients are useful to prepare a scrub for the face skin. Grind in a coffee grinder 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds until you’ll obtain a powder. Pour this powder in a little bowl, add 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel or rose water. Massage on the clean face, then rinse and apply your daily cream. Sesame is an amazing ingredient to repair the skin barrier and it acts also as an antioxidant, it protects the skin and makes it luminous and with a healthy appearance (Tzu-Kai et al, Int J Mol Sci, Jan 2018).

Parsley

Parsley isn’t just a delicious and versatile herbs for cooking but it is also a plant with a strong decongestant action. For this reason, you can use the parsley as a basic ingredient for serums and lotions to counteract eye bags. Bring to boil 250 ml of water, remove from the heat and add 1 tablespoon of leaves and sticks of parsley cut into pieces. Leave to brew for ten minutes, then filter and let it cool down. Soak a gauze and apply for ten minutes on eyes, keep the eyelids closed. Parsley is rich in antioxidants such as chlorophyll and vitamin C (USDA Database) that is characterized by an interesting decongestant action on the eyelids and on the area around the eyes (Ohshima et al, Skin Res Technol, May 2009).
