#2 Acne Treatment
If you have oily skin, you are also prone to acne breakouts, due to the increased sebum production. For this reason, it is recommended to try out this natural acne treatment. These are the ingredients you are going to require: apple cider vinegar (make sure it is organic), turmeric powder (only half a teaspoon is necessary), raw honey (Manuka honey is great, as it has amazing properties on the skin) and milk. You begin by applying the apple cider vinegar, using a cotton ball, taking advantage of its astringent properties. Then, mix the turmeric powder with the honey and apply the resulting mixture on your face. Leave it on for a quarter of an hour, then remove it with a cotton ball dipped in cold milk.
#3 Flaxseed, honey, and yogurt combo
Nowadays, there are all sorts of options available when it comes to exfoliating our skin. However, many of them are highly aggressive, requiring a lot of time to heal. If you are the kind who prefers all things natural, it is recommended to give this amazing combination a try. Mix plain Greek yogurt with honey and ground flaxseed meal, until you obtain a paste. Apply this paste on your face, making sure to massage it into the skin. It is advisable to let it sit on the skin for about two minutes; then it should be rinsed off with lukewarm water. The yogurt hydrates the skin, helping with the removal of dead cells as well. The honey has natural anti-bacterial properties, hydrating the skin at the same time. As for the ground flaxseed, it gently exfoliates the skin, allowing you to look better than ever.
#4 Vitamin bomb with anti-aging properties
The skin requires vitamins to thrive, just like the rest of the body. If you are interested in rejuvenating your skin, all you have to do is take half a banana and mix it with one medium-sized apricot. Using a blender is recommended, as it delivers the best texture; if you consider it to be too thick, you can add a little bit of water. When done, apply the resulting mixture on your face, leaving it on for about twenty minutes. After time has passed, make sure to rinse it off with lukewarm water. You can repeat the application as often as you like, enjoying the multitude of beneficial vitamins (A, B-complex, C, etc.) it delivers to the skin.
