Skin Care You Can Find in Your Kitchen

Believe it or not, it doesn’t take fancy spa treatments that run your pockets, to get results when it comes to taking good care of your complexion. You need not go any further than your friendly neighborhood kitchen, right in your own house, to find wholesome nourishing treatments sure to put the apples back in your cheeks. We’re not talking botox and facelifts, but your kitchen can still provide quite an effective resource outside of that. There are several foods that not only do a body good, but a face too, and most of us want to give good face. Make an appointment with your local Kitchen…

Oh, Honey…

Yes, it’s sticky, but it does some pretty amazing things. Honey helps your complexion retain moisture. Manuka honey is particularly beneficial due to its high antibacterial properties. Perhaps the best thing about using honey for the beautification of your skin is the fact that it can be applied straight from the jar, without mixing it with anything else. How’s that for convenience? This is good information even if you can’t find it in the journal of cosmetic dentistry.

Oats…Yes, That’s Right!

Oats have incredibly calming and soothing properties, that’s why they are found in many treatments for acne-prone and sensitive skin. Oats can be ground to a fine texture and combined with many masks for the additional skin-calming benefits that they promote. Your skin is in for a real treat when you combine oats with honey. The honey promotes moisture and is antibacterial, while the addition of the oats adds calming and soothing properties to the mask.

Coconuts anyone?

Coconut oil, like honey, is another kitchen item that can be used straight from the jar. Coconut oil has intensely moisturizing and healing properties and also happens to be antifungal. Massage this into your complexion for a luxurious wholesome deeply moisturizing treatment for your skin.

All of these incredibly wholesome foods read like ingredients in a dessert but are actually quite simple yet effective treatments for your skin. Honey has many benefits when used both externally and internally. Oats are nourishing nutritionally and soothing and calming when used topically. Last but not least, coconut oil is a super emollient moisturizer with many additional perks. It is both healing and antifungal. Spa treatments from your kitchen are also great because they are inexpensive, have no side effects (barring allergies), and don’t contain extraneous harmful chemicals.
