Herbal Remedies for Beautiful Skin

Skin care is a part of our everyday life and facial masks can help us with that. Let's face it, our skin shows signs of aging first. Aging is individual for everyone and depends on many factors such as genetics, lifestyle, general health and work conditions, and climate. All of those factors take their toll on our skin.

Home-made masks for the face are good because it takes just minutes to prepare them, they are cheap and they give wonderful results. Facial masks should be used regularly, at least once a week, for the best results.

Some people choose just few skin care products and stick to them, some people like trying new and different ones. It does not matter as long as it makes you happy.  However, remember that some ingredients may cause allergic reactions. Always do a skin test before using any new beauty product.

Beauty Tip #1

Here's a great beauty tip courtesy of  Mop Top Maven that I've been using and I can honestly say that I can see a difference in my skin, especially with my pores and I can tell my skin is a little brighter.  Mix a tablespoon of honey with 2 teaspoon of lemon juice.  Apply a thin layer on skin, leave on for 30 minutes, then rinse with cool water.   This will help with facial discoloration and it's a quick way to tighten pores and fade blemishes!  Honey and lemon juice also fades age spots and brightens skin tone.

Beauty Tip #2

My second beauty tip is using honey mixed with a mashed avocado to retain moisture in my skin and create a nourishing and moisturizing mask.  I found that my skin became a little dry after using the lemon and honey mask and this helps the skin hold moisture and keeps my face soft and supple.  Avacados are rich with natural oils and are great for the skin.

Honey which is the key ingredient in both of these great beauty tips is a very versatile natural beauty product that is full of nutrients, antioxidants and other anti-aging, skin clarifying and moisturizing ingredients that makes it a must-have.  2 great beauty tips worth trying out!!
