7 Natural Ingredients To Keep Your Skin Healthy & Young Looking Forever!
We all want to stay young and beautiful for as long as possible, but we also have to be realistic about our skin. While there’s no shortage of products on the market designed to help you achieve an immaculate complexion, sometimes it just takes simple solutions that are natural. Here are seven ingredients that are all around us at home and in grocery stores, so you can keep your skin looking fresh while helping yourself feel younger every day!
Pumpkin contains vitamin A and E, which are great for your skin. It's also rich in anti-oxidants and beta-carotene (a precursor to vitamin A). These nutrients can help give you glowing skin!
Pumpkin is a good source of potassium--a mineral that helps support healthy blood pressure, heart function, muscles, nerves and more.
You may be thinking "pumpkin isn't exactly natural", but what about all those Halloween pumpkins out there? They're usually made from GMO seeds or corn syrup anyway so they don't have any nutritional value at all!
Use full-fat sour cream.
Sour cream is one of the best ingredients we can use on our skin. It's full of vitamins A and potassium, which help keep the skin elastic and supple.
It's also an excellent moisturizer that hydrates without clogging pores or causing breakouts.
Sour cream is great for exfoliating too! Just mix some into your cleanser or shower gel (I like Trader Joe's Coconut Creamed Honey Non-Rinse Body Wash), then apply it all over your body after showering--you'll feel like you just got your feet scrubbed by an angelic creature who lives in a cloud somewhere above Earth's atmosphere."
Strawberries are rich in vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps to reduce the signs of aging. You can use strawberries in a variety of ways to help your skin stay young and healthy!
One way is by applying it directly onto your face or body every day after cleansing. You can also eat them as part of a smoothie with other fruits such as oranges or kiwis, which will give you even more antioxidants!
Use olive oil.
Olive oil is an excellent moisturizer that can be used on the face, body and hair. It helps to soothe redness and irritation caused by acne, pimples, wrinkles and stretch marks.
It also helps with sunburns; it's great for keeping you from getting a nasty burn in the first place! Olive oil will also work wonders on scars left over from past breakouts or other types of skin damage. If you have dry skin (or any combination of dryness + sensitivity), then try adding some extra virgin olive oil into your routine -- this stuff packs a punch when it comes to moisture!
Use coconut oil and sugar to exfoliate.
One of the best ways to keep your skin young and healthy is by using natural ingredients. Coconut oil is one of those ingredients that can help you achieve this goal, especially if you use it as an exfoliator.
To do this, simply mix some sugar into your coconut oil and use it as a scrub on your face! This will allow for better absorption of nutrients into your system as well as break down dead cells in order to make room for new ones to form over time. The best part about this method is that it's so easy: just rub some onto dry hands or feet, then massage them across both sides of their face before rinsing off with warm water or using another cleanser if desired (if not using an actual cleanser).
Use yogurt for sensitive skin.
Yogurt is an excellent moisturizer.
Yogurt is a natural sunscreen.
It's also good for acne, as it contains lactic acid which helps remove dead skin cells and make your face looking younger and smoother.
With its probiotics and vitamin A content, yogurt can help with skin problems such as dryness or wrinkles.
Take daily supplements.
Taking daily supplements is a great way to get the vitamins and minerals you need. Plus, it can be a good way to get nutrients that you might not get enough of in your diet. However, taking too much of any one supplement will do more harm than good because it could inhibit or even cancel out some of their benefits. So don't go overboard with your supplementation!
But if you're still unsure about which supplements are right for you or how much to take, check out our article "How Much Vitamin C Do We Really Need?"
Use egg whites for wrinkly skin.
Egg whites are rich in proteins, which helps to tighten the skin. You can apply egg whites directly to the skin, or mix it with a little water and use as a face mask. Egg whites are also good for other parts of the body, like elbows and knees!
A simple beauty routine with natural ingredients can be very effective!
Natural ingredients are best for your skin. They will keep it looking young and healthy, rather than aging it like chemicals.
Natural ingredients can be found all around you! You may already have some on hand in your kitchen:
Avocados contain good fats that help your body retain moisture, which is especially important if you're prone to dryness or flakiness of the skin (which happens during winter months). Avocados also contain vitamin E, which has been shown to prevent wrinkles from forming by strengthening the capillaries closest to the surface of our epidermis (the outer layer of skin). In other words--avocado oil helps keep wrinkles at bay!
Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc--a mineral that fights free radicals that damage cells and cause premature aging over time.* Zinc can also help prevent acne breakouts by reducing inflammation caused by acne-causing bacteria such as P acnes.* Eating pumpkin seeds regularly will help keep pimples under control while providing anti-inflammatory benefits as well!
There you have it! You can get a great deal of benefits from these ingredients, and most importantly, they won’t cost you a fortune to buy or store. If you want to keep your skin looking young and healthy for years on end then follow these simple steps: use natural ingredients like pumpkin, full-fat sour cream, strawberries or coconut oil as exfoliators; use yogurt for sensitive skin; take daily supplements such as vitamin C with Vitamin E; drink lots of water - this will help flush out toxins from your body so they don’t accumulate over time causing wrinkles & sagging skin!
