Top Skin Products To Use At Home
Posted on December 20, 2010
If you are looking for a way to set up a natural skincare regimen you should know that there are effective and natural skin products that you can make from ingredients you have around your home. Whether you are looking for a thick, rich mask to moisturize dry skin or an exfoliating salt scrub to make your skin smooth and get rid of dead skin cells, you can use all natural ingredients to create skin products tailored to your needs. Skincare is critical if you want to retain a youthful and attractive appearance.
If you are trying to create skin products you may want to understand the different layers of the skin and how it ages and changes over time. An example of this is that the skincare products which are best for someone in their teens or their twenties may not have the moisturizing qualities that post menopausal skin requires.
Skin is made up of two layers, the dermis and the epidermis. Skin is constantly renewing itself and creating layers of dead skin cells which are shed. Good skincare skills accommodate these changes and nurture the skin at all stages of your life.
As skin ages it slows down the rate at which it sheds the dead cells and can begin to look dry and dull. There are several types of skin products which can combat this dullness. It is important to know what kind of skin you have and what skincare needs you must accommodate.
There are countless skin products which can be created at home. It is easier to list some ingredients which can be used to get the effects that you are trying to achieve, as well as a basic recipe. Part of the fun in creating skincare products at home is the experimentation to find what you like the best. Skin products that you create can be extremely personalized to your unique requirements.
Products such as scrubs are very popular and effective. They are part of a skincare routine since they remove dead dry skin cells that have not yet been shed by the skin. You can create amazing skin products using kosher salt and olive or other oils as a base. Simply mix together a quantity of oil and salt and slather this on the skin. Rub it slightly to rid yourself of the dead skin and then follow it up with a thick moisturizer to keep the new skin layer glowing and beautiful.
You can create moisturizing skin products at home. Moisturizers flood the skin with moisture which causes skin cells to swell and can improve skin tone overall. You can use oil from olives, avocados, sesame seeds and almonds to create a wonderful, all natural skincare moisturizer. Skin products made from these oils can include ingredients like honey for its antibacterial qualities and essential oils. You should mix oil and honey together into a creamy paste and apply it to the skin, then allow it to sit.
Using an exfoliator followed by a moisturizer is an excellent basic skincare routine.If you are interested in exfoliating the delicate skin on your face, a salt or sugar scrub can be too harsh and can irritate your skin. One of the more unique skin products you can make at home is an exfoliating mask that uses the lactic acid in milk or dairy products to remove the top layer of skin. Mix milk with oil, or avocado paste then spread it on your skin. After ten minutes, rinse it off with warm water.
Using some creativity and effort can result in some amazing natural skin products that you create at home. They are chemical free and affordable and also very effective as part of a natural skincare routine.
