Facial products can irritate skin and not just sensitive skin but skin of almost any type, which is why homemade products made from natural ingredients found in your home are not only more economical but safer for your skin. Here is a recipe for a natural skin care product that will gently clean, sooth and moisturize your skin, improving your skin’s feel, look and texture.
The main ingredient in this facial product is heavy whipping cream. Cream is a particularly good choice as it is an excellent source of lactic acid which is naturally germicidal and is beneficial in aiding in removing dead skin cells and uncovering healthy skin cells beneath. Milk protein is a good source of protein and nourishing to the skin.
The honey is also naturally germicidal, and a natural humectant which draws moisture to the skin. It also contains anti-inflammatory agents to aid in gently reducing pain and swelling from blemishes.
The tea has antioxidants and tannins which encourage skin cell renewal while removing impurities from the skin.
First brew your tea and let it cool slightly. Then gather the ingredients:
· 2 cups of heavy whipping cream
· 4 tablespoons brewed warm orange pekoe tea
· 2 tablespoons runny honey
· 1 mixing bowl
· 1 wire whisk
Pour cream into the bowl, blend in honey. Stir in tea whipping until frothy. Use on face and neck applying liberally. Allow to set for 5 to 8 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water. Store the remaining product in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 4 days or refrigerated in a whip cream dispenser for up to 10 days.
Another way to improve your skin’s moisture is to replace body fluids throughout the day. One positive way is to drink pure soda water. You can cut down on the expense of purchasing bottle water by making your own with a soda siphon. The purchase will pay for itself in no time :-) and you can reduce the plastic in our landfills.
