4 Natural Ways To Have Young Skin

4 Natural Ways To Have Young Skin

Have you felt self-conscious when watching all the skincare advertisements on TV, seeing all the women and their flawless skin? You touch your own; you might be perfect, however, a Photoshopped image seems to have a stronger control over your perspective. You stare in the mirror, reflecting on how you wish your skin could be or should feel. You run your fingers across your face, your hands, and your neck. Every freckle, every bump, every dot, you carefully examine and you dissect all the imperfections.

Healthy skin requires a healthy mind and body, and young skin requires substances that are more natural. Our cosmetics, creams, and anti-aging serums contain tons of chemicals, which eventually can cause our skin to become dependent. However, our ancestors kept a youthful glow by just using nature’s purest cosmetics.

That’s why I’ve decided to put together a few tips and tricks that will allow you to reach that goal of younger and healthier-looking skin. Fresh and young skin can definitely do wonders for one’s confidence.

    1. Tomatoes Are Both For Faces and Bloody Marys

    Bloody Marys are well known as a lovely summer drink. However, it’s always been less popular among certain crowds as it can remind one of pizza sauce with alcohol. Aside from being an ingredient in this summer beverage, tomatoes also do possess extensive qualities that tighten the skin’s pores and keep it fresh and young.

    Fortunately, you don’t need to spend a fortune in purchasing products for a tomato facial. Instead, go to the supermarket and choose the biggest and juiciest tomatoes. The juicer the better, as this makes for a smooth application. Cut the tomatoes into 4 halves and gently rub them all over your face.

    Rub clockwise and relax for the next 40 minutes. After washing your face, you’ll feel the difference. Practice this regularly, about three to four times a week, and you’ll start noticing the difference. This method guarantees fewer wrinkles, smaller pores, and tight skin that erases any thoughts of getting Botox.

      2. Turmeric Paste: An Ancient Indian Tradition

      Indians have always been known to the western world for having amazing flawless skin despite the heat. It’s definitely impressive that their skin remains soft, smooth, and fresh despite the grueling heat. Being part Indian, I’ve learned from a very young age that turmeric doesn’t only make curries taste good, but it’s also capable of making you look good.

      For this, you must use the purest form of Turmeric. Either purchase it as a root or walk to your nearest Bio Cosmetic store to purchase the powdered form. Use warm water, honey or yogurt, and 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder and mix them well. Apply it thoroughly all over your face, avoiding your eyes and lips as those are extremely sensitive areas. Wash it off after 20 minutes to avoid your skin from yellowing.

      If you’re extremely sensitive, do consult your dermatologist before using turmeric as a form of facial. After you practice applying it once every week for a month, you’ll be able to see the changes, as your skin looks softer and fresher than before.

        3. Placenta Pills: There’s A Reason Why Celebrities Use Them

        Have you ever wondered why Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and other celebrities prefer turning their placentas into tiny tablets? Well, the reason is that the placenta contains high amounts of collagen, as it’s the sole provider of nutrients to the fetus. Placenta as a medication for beauty and prosperity has long been practiced in ancient Chinese medicine. It’s known for possessing anti-aging qualities which, to this day, is still sought after.

        Fortunately, science has made it possible for anyone to use placenta pills as an anti-aging regimen. Using placentas from mammals such as cows and sheep, it is now easier for many of us to use these pills. Rest assured that placenta pills are made naturally with no chemicals, however the best advice is to always do your own research before purchasing.

        It’s been proven that consistent use tightens your skin and reduces cellulite. This gives you a younger appearance and can lead to higher self-esteem.

          4. Cucumbers and Sleep

          It’s surprising that the key to younger-looking skin is usually the simplest regimen. Sleep and cucumbers are the best remedies for a tired face. One housemate of mine even sleeps for eight whole hours with cucumbers on her eyes. Whenever I see her, she still looks as young as the last time I saw her.

          When you sleep, your body replenishes its dead tissues and your skin cells regenerate for another day. However, in our busy world, sleep has become a luxury, therefore our body, mind, and especially our skin suffers. Always try to get a good night’s rest and use cucumbers to help you avoid dark circles around your eyes.

          Confidence is something which develops over time and comes with being comfortable in your own body. Use these tips to help you put your best and healthiest face forward.

          Who has never gone through some ups and downs in the life? But some people can feel better in a quicker way than others because they’ve found their own remedies to heal the bad feelings.

          If you haven’t found yours, these ways will help you instantly feel better and ditch that negative self talk when you’re feeling bad about yourself:

          1. Listen to the songs you loved when you were in high school or university, this will recall you of the old good times.
          2. Write something. Write down how you feel as a way to express your thoughts if you don’t feel like talking to anyone.
          3. Draw something. Draw anything you want because no one’s going to judge your drawing skills.
          4. Read the postcards or letters your friends or family sent you before, remind yourself there are people who always remember you.
          5. Silently think of a day or moment which you truly enjoyed and try to recapture that very first feeling. Was it the day of your graduation? The moment you traveled with your loved one?
          6. Take out your photo albums and go over your childhood photos.
          7. Cry when you feel like doing so. There’s nothing wrong with crying; cry out all your fear and stress and just face the truth after crying.
          8. Sing loudly like no one can hear you. Do you know that in Japan, people always sing karaoke to relieve stress?
          9. Cook a nice meal for yourself or for your family.
          10. Read your previous diary entries and look at your great memories.
          11. Dress up nicely to feel happier.
          12. Don’t stay in your bed! Get your laptop or a book and sit in a coffee place.
          13. Take a walk outside and feel the fresh air.
          14. Sweat yourself! Go jogging or play some sports.
          15. Pick up the musical instrument you used to play a lot and start to play it.
          16. Tidy up your desk or wardrobe, you’ll feel good that you’re being productive and actually doing something.
          17. Watch some funny videos, sure you can find a lot of them on Youtube.
          18. Eat something you like, be it a chocolate cake, or an ice-cream. Just please yourself with the flavour you like.
          19. Re-read your favorite book and write down the sentences or passages that you love.
          20. Watch a new movie, there must be a movie which you’ve always interested in but had no time to watch it.
          21. Do something nice that no one will notice, say picking up a rubbish in the street and throw it to a trash bin.
          22. Call your best friend and just talk whatever you want! Human beings are social animals after all, connecting with people close to you will make you feel better.
          23. Do voluntary work and help people in need, you’ll feel happy and satisfied.
          24. Get drunk with your close friends at home – a safe place for you to get drunk and get crazy. Let loose and have fun with your very close friends.
          25. Write an email or a note to a friend who you care about.
          26. Get out of your routine life and meet new friends. Get out of your comfort zone! Meeting new people can give you new inspirations in life.
          27. Look into the mirror and smile. Act like today’s already a wonderful day. How we act affects how we feel. It’s difficult to go on feeling sad if you’re trying to smile!

          Remember:
