One of the most essential beauty routines for a woman is taking care of her skin. Though there are many expensive products filled with chemicals for you to use in the market, it is better to look for natural ways to take care of your skin as they are definitely safe for your hands and health.

1.Lemon juice

The acidic feature of lemon juice acts as an anti-bacterial that helps remove acne. However be careful while using lemon juice as it may irritate sensitive skin. Just blend some lemon juice with water and apply to your face. Another option is soaking it in salt or sugar to use for exfoliating your skin.

2.Salt and water

Salt is great for taking care of your skin as it fights against pimples by making your skin dry. As your pimples don’t have anything to be nourished with, they will not grow bigger. After this, moisturize your skin.

3.Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera not only nourishes your skin with vitamin E, it also calms your skin and fights inflammation with its anti-bacterial feature.

4.Ice

Not many people are aware of the beneficial qualities of ice. It helps rid your face of redness, pimples and inflammation. Ice is also helpful at curing spots.

5.Water

It is important that you provide your skin with sufficient water and hydration so that your skin remains fresh and jovial. Drink at least 7-8 cups of water every day for improved skin and for preventing acne.

6.Tea tree oil

Tea tree oil is great for fighting against bacteria and can be safely applied to treat any skin problem. Just add it to water or your cream, and use as a lotion.

7. Glycerine soap

Always use real soap made from glycerine as most of the soaps in the market today have synthetic detergents that strip your skin of natural oils.

8.Toner

Toner helps temporarily shrink and tighten the skin. Instead of buying one, you can make your own toner by steeping some raspberry leaf teabags in boiling water and letting it cool. Use cotton balls to apply the toner after thorough cleansing of the skin.

9.Jojoba oil

Jojoba oil made from the desert plant jojoba is a great light moisturizer that makes your skin look and feel supple and not too dry or oily.

10.Extra virgin oil

Extra virgin olive oil is great to use for removing eye make-up. All you have to do is drop a few drops of the oil on cotton swab or ball and then use it to gently wipe away mascara, eyeliner and eye shadow.

Besides all these natural ways to take care of your skin, it is important that you follow a healthy diet with lots of fruits, vegetables and grains and lots of water. Do regular exercise as it improves your circulation wherein oxygen rich blood reaches your vital organs, including your skin. Avoid the sun, and if you do go outdoors, wear a sunscreen. Stop smoking and limit your drinks as alcohol dehydrates your body and skin.
