DIY homemade skincare products are not just great for your skin but are also a lot of fun to make. A variety of food items that you might already have in your kitchen can help you address a host of skin concerns. Here are 5 quick and simple homemade and all natural recipes for you to add to your skincare routine.

A face scrub for dull skin

This wonderful exfoliating scrub will leave your skin feeling soft and radiant! Mix two tablespoons of sugar with two tablespoons of hot water. Add other ingredients depending on your skin type. For oily skin, add a dash of lemon juice. For dry skin, add honey or coconut milk to soften and nourish the skin. Go one step further and replace the water with vegetable oils, such as sweet almond or hazelnut oil. Gently scrub your face with this homemade scrub using small circular motions. Rinse your face with water and pat dry. The scrub will get rid of dead skin cells and leave you with a natural glow from within.


A face rinse for brightening up your face

Add the juice of one lemon (without the pulp) to 250ml of mineral water. Also add a drop of lemon essential oil to the mix. Lemon contains exfoliating and antibacterial properties, which eliminate small blemishes. It is packed with vitamin C (a natural antioxidant) that brightens your complexion.


A face mask for sensitive skin

Oatmeal is wonderful for soothing sensitive complexions. It softens and calms irritated skin that is just crying out for help. Mix a third of a cup of oatmeal with warm water to make a soft paste. Add a tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of yoghurt. This miraculous face mask can also be used elsewhere on the body to calm eczema.


A face pack for oxidised skin

Chocolate is your best friend when it comes to treating skin oxidation. Melt two to three squares of dark chocolate and mix with a teaspoon of vegetable oil and a tablespoon of double cream. Mix into a smooth paste, spread it on your face, and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse off your face with warm water once the time is up. Your skin will be protected and give off the delicious smell of chocolate, too. Irresistible!


A face mask to get soft skin

Mix one egg white, a tablespoon of runny honey, half a tablespoon of lemon juice, and a tablespoon of yoghurt in a large bowl. Honey is rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids and it plumps up the skin, leaving it soft and cleansed. The calcium in the milk boosts cell renewal. The protein in the egg white firms up your skin. A perfect all-in-one face mask for pampering your skin!
