Skincare remedies can be very expensive especially with the growing cost of living. Furthermore, not all of the beauty products are guaranteed to work. Fortunately, it is not necessary to spend huge amount of money to order to get the radiant and healthy skin that everybody is yearning for. In fact, there are many home remedies for common skin problems which are just as good as these beauty products. The plus point is that they are a lot cheaper than most of the over-the-counter remedies and just as effective at the same time.
Check out these 3 common skin conditions as well as their respective skincare remedies.
Common Skin Problem #1: Puffy and Tired Skin
Get a small bottle of Aloe Vera gel from your nearest health store and spread a dime sized amount over a dry, clean face. Allow the gel to dry properly before continue with any other daily beauty regimen. The benefits of Aloe Vera include tightening of skin naturally and offer a cooling effect which can reduce inflammation and puffiness.
Other than that, Aloe Vera can boost the skin’s immune system and continued usage of it in the long run will improve the overall health of the skin. Try to avoid the eye areas when applying the Aloe Vera gel.
Common Skin Problem #2: Large Zit
It is sometimes inevitable to suffer from pesky pimples problem, especially when life is so stressful. To get rid of the problem, crush up 1 tablet of ibruprofen or aspirin; also make sure that the tablet is a plain white tablet without any colour coating. Then mix the powder with a few drops of Visine until a paste is formed.
Apply the paste directly to the problem area. The Visine will reduce the redness while the aspirin can reduce the inflammation drastically. Wait for the paste to fully dry out. When dried, the paste will begin to crumble away and the zit will be gone as well!
Common Skin Problem #3: Patchy, Dry and Dull Skin
Vitamin E plays an important role in skin care and keeps the skin healthy. To solve this problem, break a Vitamin E capsule onto the finger tips and then apply the gel on clean face before bed.
The Vitamin E encourages the elasticity of the skin and also boosts its immune system. The gel will also keep the skin hydrated throughout the night. Gently wash the face or simply rinse with water in the morning.
The above home skincare remedies should be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise. Try them out first before investing loads of money on expensive skincare products that do not work. Cheaper remedies do not mean that they are not effective.
