Age is inevitable, but there are ways to slow down the process! Who doesn’t want to stay youthful? Here are a few natural techniques to preserving your skin.
Use coconut milk as a moisturizer
Having dry skin can create wrinkles so it’s really important to keep your skin hydrated. One natural way you can do this is by using coconut milk because it contains many essential nutrients and vitamins for the skin. Squeeze the milk out of the pulp and apply the liquid to your face and let it sit for 20 minutes.
Tighten with rose water
Rose water has a natural astringent that tightens skin and gives it firmness. It can also reduce puffiness under your eyes. All you have to do is mix a couple teaspoons of rose water with 3-4 drops of glycerine and a half a teaspoon of lemon juice. Then dab this mixture onto your skin with a cotton ball before bed.
Firm up your skin using papaya
Papaya contains an enzyme that digests dead skin cells and makes it more elastic and firm. Create a mask by mashing a ripe papaya into a paste. Leave it on your face for 15 minutes and wash it away with warm water.
Make sure you are getting proper nutrition
The most important thing you can do for your body is give it proper nutrition. Taking care of your body from the inside out will feed the skin and provide elasticity.
Reduce dark spots with lemon
Lemons juice can really help with the fading of dark spots and freckles that appear from the damage the sun does to your skin. Just apply lemon juice or lemon essential oil to the targeted areas for 15 minutes daily.
