I have always been in natural skincare and will provide you today with six tips for beautiful glowing skin. If you use one or some of these tips daily, you will be amazed by how your skin will glow.
There are many tips for cleansing your skin naturally; this means you don’t use chemical cleaners from a supermarket, but you can use your handmade products. Cleaning your skin with soft, natural, but powerful ingredients will quickly bring you results. I never use chemical products you can buy and which have more than 2 ingredients.
In my blog “Organic Natural Skincare,” I told you why I am not using products with ingredients that penetrate my skin and harm me. 🙂 Would you like to do that?
The tips I give here are additional to your daily skincare regime by including them daily or twice a week, maybe once a month. This is up to you.
Cleanse Your Skin with Apple Cider Vinegar
This is an amazing tonic, not only for internal use but also for external cleansing of your skin.
Apple cider vinegar is made from apples in a fermentation process by adding yeast that turns sugar into alcohol. Bacteria turn the alcohol into acetic acid. Its anti-inflammatory power consisting of acetic acid and alpha hydroxy acid makes ACV outstanding for inflamed skin restoring the skin’s ph levels in a natural way.
When you have done your skin cleansing, you might want to take a cotton ball with some apple cider vinegar and press it softly onto your face skin. It also refreshes your skin, and you will notice that the sour smell will disappear.
Done daily, your skin will be beautified, resulting in an amazing glow. But be careful; if you have an inflamed spot that is open, it will give a burning sensation for a moment, so you better dilute the apple cider vinegar with water. Used undiluted will not harm your skin, but it can burn extremely.
If you are suffering from acne, you need also to be careful, especially if you have open areas. It is always better to balance your hormones first by eating healthy, drinking lots of fresh vegetable juice and green powders, including flaxseed and healthy fats, like omega-3s.
Especially in puberty, it is quite normal to have hormone disbalances due to becoming an adult. If you try the ACV, then dilute it very strongly with pure water and try on one spot first. Apple cider vinegar will not worsen your inflamed skin, but you might experience a bad skin burning.
Better use skin masks with bentonite, which cools your skin and also has anti-inflammatory properties. You can always use the ACV later when your skin has healed.
If you already want to use ACV, take it internally by putting a spoonful of ACV into a glass of pure water, drinking it every morning, and maybe two more times during the day. So you will balance your alkaloid / acid levels in your body, which is essential to healing from the inside out. Always use organic apple cider vinegar, which is unfiltered and fermented in a natural way.
Organic skin masks for Beautiful Glowing Skin
There is so much you could do for your skin. A skin mask will cleanse and exfoliate your face but also hydrate your skin. It depends on what your skin needs.
If you have dry skin, you will gently exfoliate and focus more on hydrating your skin. If you have oily skin, your goal will likely be to reduce the oil on your skin. If you have inflamed acne skin, you will cool your skin and reduce the inflammation. Some women have Rosacea, which needs a different approach. If you have normal skin, you would like to keep your glow and hydration.
There are many recipes you could try out. I will list some for you.
1. Dry Skin
recipe a) 2 spoonful greek yogurt, 1/2 spoonful organic honey
Optional for the honey. You could crush a piece of cucumber or a piece of apple.
Mix the ingredients, and leave on your face for at least 15 minutes. Then cleanse your face with water.
Joghurt and honey are cooling and hydrating the skin, whereby honey also has anti-inflammatory components.
2 spoonful oatmeal, 1/2 cup of water( you could always increase the amount to create a soft paste),1/2 spoonful honey
Mix it, leave it on the skin for at least 15 minutes. Then cleanse your face with water.
Oatmeal will softly exfoliate and hydrate your skin.
2. Oily Skin
2 spoonful bentonite or another kind of clay, juice of a half lemon, water
Mix it till you get a nice paste, leave it on your face for about 15 minutes, then cleanse it with water.
Bentonite has an astringent property; it will balance your skin without dehydrating it, while lemon will recover the ph of your skin. I would use this mask once or twice a week, not more.
Optional you might use 3-5 drops of neem oil with the other ingredients. Neem oil is perfect for inflammation and infections of the skin. This mask is perfect for acne skin, but then leave the lemon, use the neem oil.
Most skin problems result from a wrong lifestyle, wrong food, too little moving, hormone disbalances. It would be best if you adapt to a healthier life to heal from the inside out.
Skin Micro-Needling Therapy for Beautiful Glowing Skin
This has been a huge topic and used by quite a lot of women. Many women have spent a fortune to get better skin needling their face. And I really can say it works.
You could easily do this at your home. If you see some photos on the internet, you can see that some therapists are needling till your skin bleeds. They say that the skin’s repair mechanism will create new cells through the perforation, removing the old dead cells. This is the process of micro-needling therapy.
If you do it at your home, you need proper hygiene. Otherwise, you might infect your skin with bacteria.
I have bought myself two microneedle rollers that have different lengths of needles. Dermaroller is an excellent brand, but others are also fine.
It is an easy activity if it is done in the right manner. Using the roller with 5 mm needles for the skin’s deeper perforation has given me amazing results. You don’t need to use it very often, once a month or within 6 weeks is enough.
The skin starts to repair the little perforation while developing new skin resulting in glowing, healthy, beautiful skin. Applying hyaluronic serum after needling cools and plumps the skin.
If you have acne, don’t use this technic. You might get your face infected and even more inflamed. Go and see a professional first!
I have a micro-needling roller with needles that have a length of 2mm for daily use. By perforating the skin superficially, your skincare will better penetrate the skin. It is perfect for the morning or evening. You could always use a hyaluronic or a pure organic aloe vera gel or serum to hydrate your skin. You will be amazed by the results of your beautiful glowing skin.
Infrared lamps for skin healing
An Infrared heat lamp therapy is an effective alternative therapy to infrared saunas, which you can use to heal skin and detoxify the body. They are very low in costs but very beneficial for medical use. I only want to list the benefits for the skin in this blog.
These lamps are excellent for skin aging, health and skin infections, acne, rashes, and burns. It accelerates skin healing and detoxification. This therapy is also called Low-Level Laser and photobiomodulation, using the sun’s light spectrum without skin-damaging UV radiation.
This light’s deep penetration will fasten the blood circulation, which brings nutrients to cells and promotes detoxification. I will recommend this lamp also for the liver cleanse by stimulating the liver to work better.
The use of this lamp on inflamed skin areas is recommended two to three times a week. You will see how quickly your skin recovers. Used on your face, it tightens the muscles, preventing the sagging of the skin. That is a nice result.
Facial Massage with Gua Sha
The Chinese people use Gua Sha for cleansing the body and the face by using a half-moon or heart-shaped flat stone, jade, or rose quartz stone. Scraping the stone over the skin in upward movements relaxes muscles, and activates tissue drainage. By doing so daily or several times a week, your facial skin becomes glowy and tightened.
This treatment gives you an instant facelift and improves wrinkled, sagging skin, including dark circles, acne, rosacea, and pigmentation, by activating the blood and lymph circulation. I will recommend this massage very much. The stones give a cooling effect.
The list can even be longer, with so many possibilities to improve your skin. Combined with a healthier lifestyle, you will, for sure, have younger-looking, healthier skin. It is worth finding out which treatment is for you the best. Gua Sha has excellent results when used together with facial yoga, another perfect method for tightening your facial muscles and preventing sagging of the face’s contours. Maybe you would like to try it out to create beautiful glowing skin.
