Radiant skin makes you look healthy and vital. Pale, dry skin, on the other hand, is a sign that we're feeling flabby and tired - and this is also noticeable on your face. We present 5 ingredients that you can easily integrate into your beauty and skin care routine. And the best part? You probably already have everything you need in your kitchen or bathroom cabinet.
Ground coffee: the miracle cure for beautiful skin
Coffee is a miracle cure for beautiful skin - and not just in the fight against cellulite. As an ingredient in a tingly facial scrub, ground coffee removes excess oil from the skin and ensures good circulation. You can apply the coffee pure to the skin or mix it with nourishing oils, such as olive oil. It is best to try it on a small part of the skin first to see if the skin tolerates it. Then rinse thoroughly.
Honey: home remedy with superpowers
Makes velvety lips, but also soft skin: AOL Manager Anne Stava tried out liquid honey, a real miracle cure for particularly dry skin, but also for soothing irritated skin. Mix honey with a few drops of lemon juice, apply to cleansed face and leave on for 20 minutes while lying down. Then clean the skin with water - result: smooth and soft skin.
Activated charcoal: Detox for your skin
Due to the suction effect of charcoal, masks, soaps and facial cleansers with activated charcoal are primarily intended for blemished skin, acne and oily skin. The black powder's ability to suck in dirt particles is said to even reach into the pores. Activated charcoal is clearly a miracle product for the skin. It even whitens teeth.
Witch Hazel Mask
Heat 2g cocoa butter, a little soybean oil and wheat germ oil in a stirring vessel on a water bath until the cocoa butter is completely melted. Meanwhile, heat the witch hazel water to about 70 oC. Remove the melt from the water bath, add the hot witch hazel water all at once and stir in well with a spoon. Apply the witch hazel mask to the face while it is warm to the touch - either immediately after preparation or after heating the mask in the water bath. Keep the eye area free.
Olive oil for moisture and anti-aging
Massage the olive oil simply into the skin - done. For oily skin, this oil is ideal due to its conditions. In addition, it can be extended with essential oils, who does not like the smell.
