Every woman desires natural glowing skin. Unfortunately, most reach out for artificially made products that further damage the skin instead of rejuvenating it. Some women may turn to procedures like facelifts or rhinoplasty to achieve their desired look. However, with a little more research and patience, people slowly appreciate the natural remedies or safer non-invasive methods that they can pursue to give them a new look. Here are a few easy treatments to rejuvenate your skin through the fall season:
In This Post:
1. Moisturize Your Skin
Even if the temperatures are cooling down, that does not mean you should deny your skin the moisturization care it deserves. The most common moisturization method is ensuring that you stick to a consistent water intake routine. Water ensures every part of your body is well hydrated and radiant as it should.
An excellent combination for a homemade moisturizer is coconut water or coconut milk plus honey. Apply this mixture and gently massage it to your face and neck and let it stay in for about 20 minutes. Lastly, rinse it out with warm water. With time, you will notice a new radiance and smoothness to your skin, with fewer pimples if you had any. If you don’t have time to mix up this homemade moisturizer, you can opt to apply it overnight at least once a week.
2. Make a Pumpkin Face Mask
It would not be fair to underutilize pumpkins around this time of year as long as it is done in an enriching way. While pumpkins can be used in delicious stews and pies in the fall, you can also use them for beauty-boosting purposes. A pumpkin face mask not only rehydrates your skin but also boosts collagen levels and restores skin elasticity.
For maximum benefits, add plain yogurt and honey to the mixture as well. Yogurt helps loosen dead skin cells and enables the mask to penetrate better into the skin. This mask is not hard to make. Use ½ a cup of pumpkin puree, ½ a cup of plain yogurt, and one tablespoon of raw honey. Mix them up in a bowl and later apply them onto the skin and let it sink in for 15 minutes, then wash it off with warm water.
3. Avoid Hot Showers
Due to the sudden change in temperatures, it’s natural for most people to shift to using steamy hot showers to beat the cold. However, hot showers are known to damage the keratin cells in the skin, which affects the skin’s natural elasticity and moisture. If the keratin cells are damaged for a longer time, it leads to a skin dry-out and prevents the skin from keeping in the moisture as it should. Therefore, even in the cold, please try and use lukewarm water for your showers. That way, you don’t get to kill the essential skin cells of your body.
4. Apply Papaya Mask
Papaya is another fruit that generates numerous benefits to the human body. Luckily, they are available through all seasons as long as the environment they are growing in is warm enough. Besides papaya being widely known for its bleaching properties, especially for black under-eye circles, they contain vitamin C and E help in anti-aging. To use it, get one fully ripe papaya and mash it into a smooth paste. Apply the paste to your face and neck, let it sink in for 20 minutes, and then rinse it off with warm water.
5. Eat The Available Seasonal Foods
Healthy eating is one of the constant habits of healthy living, which reflects on your skin. Luckily, the fall season has incredible fruits and vegetables which can help rejuvenate your skin. These include pumpkin, avocado, butternut squash, berries, walnuts, brussels sprouts, carrots, etc. Including some of these foods into your daily diet and in the right portions will help your skin regenerate new cells that slow down aging.
It is easy to snuggle up on your couch indoors and not get involved in any physical activity in these cold conditions. However, this season is very exercise-friendly because it’s not too hot. Therefore, you can sustain the exercise for a much longer time. However, if you still want to stay indoors, yoga would be a great exercise to keep you relaxed and maintain your body. Yoga is believed to maintain that healthy glow and slow the aging process. Once in a while, though, take a walk, jog or cycle to take in some fresh air and prevent you from being dull.
7. Use Cucumber
Most of us only buy cucumbers to make healthy snacks or salads. However, the benefits of cucumber outweigh only eating, but they offer a great skin treatment benefit when incorporated into your skin routine. They are packed with antioxidants making them a valuable ingredient for most face masks.
If you’re suffering from under-eye circles or puffy eyes, they will get rid of them. Making it is not hard either. Grate a small cucumber and add 2-3 tablespoons of yogurt and blend it. Apply and massage it to the skin, let it sink in for 20 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. You can repeat this after every four days or once a week.
8. Apply Rose Water
Roses are also all-season flowers; therefore, you can surely get them in the fall season. They are the perfect facial cleanser, get rid of dark spots, dark eye circles, and acne, tighten the skin, and maintain the needed skin firmness. All you need to do is first soak the rose petals in water to get the rose water. Mix ½ a teaspoon of lemon juice, three drops of glycerin, and two teaspoons of water and apply the mixture with cotton wool to your face every day. Leave that on your face for 20 minutes and rinse off with warm water.
Using natural skin treatments is not complicated as we perceive. Consistency in using these products goes a long way into refreshing your skin to achieve the look you need. They may be slow in action, but you will soon see the results as long as you remain persistent and consistent.
