Natural Skincare from your Fridge

Posted by: Patrick Catanzariti on April 6, 2016

 

What if I said you could get natural skincare products for a fraction of the price? It’s not too good to be true! All you need to do is head to the kitchen. These 4 ingredients all do just as well to look after your skin as they do in your dinner!

1. Coconut oil

Is there anything coconut oil can’t do? It’s a natural moisturiser as well as a makeup remover! And you’ll smell like a tropical holiday all day long. Just pour some onto a cotton ball, and wipe across your eyes. It’ll even remove waterproof mascara!

2. Cocoa butter

You’ve probably seen commercial moisturisers that use cocoa butter. That’s because it’s got fantastic deep moisturising properties, but there’s a more natural way to soften your skin. To really help lock in moisture, apply some raw, organic cocoa butter to your skin after you’ve had a bath or shower. It can also been used to reduce the appearance of scars or stretch marks (although sadly, it probably won’t totally get rid of them).

3. Honey

Honey has heaps of sweet skincare benefits. It’s great for hydrating your skin, and as a face mask it’ll purify as well. Plus, it has natural antibacterial properties which can help clear up acne-prone skin. Have a look at these ideas for honey face masks, as well as some bonus hair care uses as well. Just don’t be tempted to eat it all before you put it on your face!

4. Avocado

Avocado is yet another natural moisturiser. Use avocado on your body and face to hydrate and soften. It can also help reduce wrinkles and other signs of ageing, because it’s jam-packed with antioxidants. And if avocado skin treatments are good enough for Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham, they’re good enough for me!
