winter skin care

During the winter, to keep the skin hydrated and with a healthy aspect is a little bit difficult. Although there are lots of creams and lotions which help to leave the skin in hydrated and well cared, some of these treatments are still extremely expensive.
Every woman has her tricks to keep herself pretty. Knowing the right stores to buy nice and cheap clothes, use that special brand of makeup and attend certain beauty salon are some of these tricks, but you can get even more beautiful with some silly, cheap little secrets that can be used at home.
Today I'm writing this post with some natural alternatives that can be made at home and at a low cost.

Coconut oil
The coconut oil can do wonders for the skin and one of its main characteristics is hydration.
There are several ways to use it, directly on the skin, in the most problematic areas or by adding a few drops in the bath. The oil will leave the skin very soft and with a fantastic smell. For more tips about coconut oil in the beauty read HOW TO USE COCONUT OIL IN YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE!

Olive oil
Olive oil is a miracle substance that, not only does wonders to dry skin, as is one of the basic ingredients of most moisturizing creams on the market. When used alone, it eliminates the danger of chemicals on the skin and other ingredients in lotions that can decrease its effectiveness.
Olive oil is composed of a lot of antioxidants that help to repair the skin dry, irritated or even reddish skin, as well as to prevent and repair the damage caused by the Sun. Soak a piece of cotton with oil and apply on the skin (mainly in the drier areas), let it act for few minutes and then wash the face.

If you have an Aloe plant at home, will be one of the best investments. This plant not only has a long durability, and also has an easy maintenance. When you need Aloe, just cut part of the plant and squeeze the gel.
This will have a colorless, gelatinous appearance and is on the inside of the leaf. You can cut the plant at will because it will grow again, which demonstrates its miraculous properties. Aloe not only moisturizes but also repairs the irritated skin.

Olive oil, lemon, and salt
If you're not a fan of putting olive oil directly on the skin, this is a great alternative. Mix the juice of a lemon, with five tablespoons of salt and a tablespoon of olive oil to create a luxurious scrub.
The smell of fresh lime has invigorating properties and with the olive oil, this scrub will leave skin fresh, moisturized and extremely smooth.

It not only deeply moisturizes the dry skin but also improves the skin appearance. Put directly in the drier areas, gently massage the skin, leave it on for 2-3 minutes and then wash the face.
Repeat this every day and you will see the skin improvement.

Scrub for smoother skin: To remove impurities accumulated on the skin and also the dead cells, nothing better than a good exfoliation. When you don't have the right cream, however, you don't have to spend a fortune on an expensive treatment. Just mix some honey and sugar, creating a cheap and simple exfoliating mask. The recipe must be applied on the face, and make a circular motion.

Chamomile to decompress the face
When we sleep or spend several days working or studying too much, it is normal that our skin looking bad at the end of the day. To relieve redness and reduce the swelling of the face, try chamomile tea. Just prepare the tea and put it in the fridge for a night. The next morning, soak a cotton ball in the tea and apply on the face, especially in the swollen areas, such as dark circles, for example.

Water for a beautiful skin
A spray of mineral water or coconut water can be used on the face to help keep your skin looking good. Another good tip is to dip the face in ice water to help hide dark circles, inflammation, and swelling.

Papaya, yogurt, and honey to hydrate
It is possible to hydrate the skin without the need of industrialized creams. A good recipe is to mash a piece of papaya and blend it with two tablespoons of yogurt and a little honey. The mask should be applied to the face and let it act for few minutes. Then just wash your face with water.
