3 SIMPLE TREATMENTS TO KEEP YOUR FACE YOUNG AND VIBRANT
How are you coping with everything these days?
Are you taking the time off to take care of yourself?
It is no secret that stress and anxiety can have a serious effect on your mental and physical wellbeing, but did you know thatstress can also leave a mark on your face and body? One of two ways that stress affects your skin is because of the hormones that get released into your body as a result of stress causing physiological changes that may negatively impact your skin. And the other one is bad habits. We tend to make less healthy eating habits when under a lot of stress, as well as developing habits like teeth grinding, therefore affecting not only how we feel but also how we look.
You don’t need to go to expensive salons and pay a lot of money for beauty procedures to release the tension. There are many ways you can get your skin to glow from inside out in the comfort of your home.
Here are 3 simple DIY treatments that will help to keep your face young and vibrant.
1. Apply a face mask to moisturize and nourish your skin
No need to spend money on expensive face masks – face masks can be made with natural ingredients from your kitchen or your garden. Natural remedies and oils tend to be pure and a much better choice in comparison to over-the-counter products that not only contain active moisturizing products but a ton of different preservatives.
Use olive oil as a natural cleanser and moisturizer for your skin.
Olive oil has many great benefits. It’s rich in vitamins A, D, E, and Kand has antioxidant properties. Use it as a cleanser because olive oil won’t strip your skin’s natural oils, but it will clean your skin.
You can add a half of mashed avocado to 1 teaspoon of olive oil (for very dry skin you can also add 1 tablespoon of honey) and then use it as a face mask. Avocado is full of healthy fats, vitamins, and antioxidants; therefore, it works wonders for dry skin. Leave it for 15-20 minutes and then wash it off.Your skin will feel vibrant and moisturized.
Bananas contain nutrients such as potassium, Vitamin B-6, Vitamin C, and traces of Vitamin A, which may help with your skin health. Because bananas are rich in antioxidants which help to fight free radicals in the body, a banana face mask will help your skin glow.Antioxidants that could be found in bananas might help to boost your skin’s natural ability to prevent sun damage.
Just mash a banana and massage your face with the puree. Leave it on from 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse everything off with lukewarm water.
Put on your favorite playlist or enjoy the silence while letting the face mask work its magic.
2. Release the tension with a hot, relaxing bath
Get a hot bath running to release the tension. A hot bath will help sore or tight muscles to relax, and the heat will help you with your blood circulation.
Try adding milk and/or natural essential oils. It will help you reduce stress, pain, and inflammation.
Milk baths will help you moisturize your skin as milk contains proteins, fat, vitamins, lactic acid and different minerals. Lactic acid will serve you as a gentle exfoliator and the proteins and fat will soothe your skin
You can also choose vegan milk options like coconut milk which contains lauric acid. Some studies show that coconut contains compounds that can help to support collagen production.
For very dry or sensitive skin try using oat milk, as oats have highly moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties. The starch from oats acts as a hydrating ingredient and helps restore the skin barrier and the phenols contained in oats helps with itch.
For a soothing aromatherapy effect add a few drops of natural lavender or jasmine essential oil. Sip a glass of your favorite wine, light a few candles and let the flame’s soft illumination touch your soul.
3. Boost your energy levels with a smoothie
As we all know smoothies are loaded with fruits and vegetables but what you may not know is that they also tend to be loaded with fiber which can help to lower your risks of chronic illnesses and increasing your overall health.
Wish to get that Jennifer Aniston glow? In an interview with Well and Good Jennifer admitted that it is all about that breakfast smoothie for her. Every morning she makes a protein shake with bananas, blueberries, stevia, frozen cherries, vegetable mix, maca powder, cacao, and a collagen peptide to keep her skin radiant.
Smoothies are full of nutrients and flavor. They also often include ingredients that contain beta-carotene that helps to boost your immune system and improves your body’s ability to fight against pathogens and diseases.
A healthy breakfast smoothie that contains bananas, kiwi, and oats provides magnesium and calcium in good amounts. Both of these minerals help to support high-quality sleep for adults and, as we know, having a goodnight's sleep is very essential to be healthy and feel energized throughout the day.
