During the hot summer months, the last thing you want to do is pile on the foundation. Summer is all about running straight into the ocean and being able to tan your skin in the sunlight. So, let’s banish the cosmetics for a while, and get our skin cleared up. We at SANT Magazine have compiled a few tips and tricks on how you can achieve your perfect summer skin so that you can just put on some SPF and go!
Today we are helping you explore the beauty of natural ingredients in healing problematic skin. Of course, don’t forget about your daily moisturiser, but let’s discover the benefits of natural remedies. You can pick up all of the recommended ingredients at your local grocery store. Who knows, you might already have all of them at home! This article will teach you how to supplement your skin properly, so that makeup will no longer be needed when you are walking around sandy beaches this summer.
Yes, lemons are a magical ingredient. Squeeze half of a lemon into a glass or two of warm water in the morning for excellent benefits. It does not only help clear up your skin, it also balances hormones and speeds up your metabolism! Not to mention, it is incredibly yummy as well. You can even use lemon juice as a dressing on salads or on top of omega 3-dense fish to add the benefits into your diet. It’s so simple and so good for you.
Use it instead of fatty oils when cooking, as a hair mask, or smear it all over your body for ultimate hydration. Coconut oil is able to combat acne and is incredible for both the inside and outside of your body. If you ingest it, it can help increase healthy cholesterol and promote general heart health. If melted in the palm of your hand and applied to your face, it can help fight inflammation and acne. Before applying the coconut oil, steam your face to open up your pores, and then apply generously and leave on for a few minutes before washing off.
Yoghurt & Honey Mask
Another tip we have for you is to create your own honey and yoghurt mask to help heal acne and imperfections. Mix natural yoghurt with the honey of your choice together in a bowl, and apply to a clean face. Leave on for about ten minutes, and then gently wipe off. The lactic acid from the yoghurt will help remove dead skin cells and clear up acne. It can also be applied to sunburnt skin to help soothe it, which will be helpful during the summer months.
You have probably heard our last tip a million times before. This one is all about diet. The more fresh veggies and natural foods that you eat, the better your skin will be! So don’t forget your veggies. It will also help you with any weight loss and health goals you may have!
