More natural skin care recipes from the kitchen cupboard

Updated on December 9, 2014

organic skin care products


If you make your own natural skin products by choosing your ingredients, I can guarantee that the satisfaction in producing your own natural skin care range is not matched by any of the more expensive eye creams, masks and moisturisers you find down to the stores. Even better if you can collect your precious herbs from your garden or allotment where you can outsourcing the raw material. Of course wrinkles and saggy skin won’t be going for good just because you are using these recipes. Skin’s deterioration is down to complex causes such as stress, food regime, pollution the natural ageing problem that occurs no matter what we do. However these natural ingredients would nourish, replenish and rejuvenate the skin helping to slow down the rise of wrinkles and fine lines. In the recipes that you will find below I used carried and essential oils that you can purchase in your organic shop or food stores. In U.K the average cost of those oils are approximately £4-7 depending of the product. It can be a little bit expensive but please consider that you will use these oils to make different products plus they are an essential part of the recipes and .......the fun!



Eyes skin care products:anti-wrinkles lotions and make up removers

In this hub I will concentrate on recipes for the delicate skin around the eyes:

In here you will find:

Anti-wrinkles lotion

Anti- puffiness anti eyes bags remedies

Eye make up removers


The skin around our eyes is 10 times thinner than the rest of the skin and retains less oil and moisturisers .Further more the ageing process reduces the collagen around the eyes therefore the skin loses elasticity faster than other areas of the body. The condition can also getting worse by exposure to the sun, weather conditions, smoking, our daily food regime and blinking movements. We produce 10,000 blinks a day! This is a very delicate area subjected to crow feet lines eye bags and puffiness.Excessive alcohol and smoking accelerate the free-radicals which are particles that destroy the cells. One the other end carotene and some herbal extractsfrom chamomile lecithin and berries are extremely good in improving the condition of this delicate skin.

For puffiness: quick home made remedies:

1. Apply some lukewarm tea bags for 10 minutes.

2. Apply some potatoes slices lightly press on the eyes so that the liquid will squeeze out. This will have a calm effect on the eyes that are particularly irritated.

The following recipe is not only great to eliminate bags and puffiness but after this treatment your make up around the eyes will be better enhanced firm. To be applied when the the skin is still dump.

3. Apply some used tea bags previously stored in the fridge for 12 hours.

For eye bags and round circles

15 gr of Rosemaryne

15 gr of mauve

15 gr of roses

Add 250gr of boiling water and leave till soaked for 20 minute.Filter the liquid and leave it in a container in the fridge.Apply on eyes for 15 minutes.

Drinks that help our sight :

Our diet is the first call to have a beauty and healthy skin. Remember that puffiness is caused by excessive salts and general dehydration. Blueberry juice is excellent not only in nourish the skin but to improve our vision too. Not only berries are rich in antioxidant (Anthocyanin responsible for the blue color of the fruit) but also they improve our sight and are efficient in fighting the nasty glaucoma because they stimulate the production of collagen.

Carrots juice it is also indicated for eyes and improves the sight greatly

Eyes make up home made remover

Make up remover:

Is your make up remover irritating your eyes or not doing its job properly and leaves some make up behind? Find a recipes for sensitive skin which will nourish the skin and unclog the pores too. The following recipe is rich in oils which this particular area lacks most.

Ingredients:

1tsp of castor oil

2tsp of Almond oil

2tbs of Withch Hazel

Steer all the ingredients together in a bowl and put in a bottle with a nozzle.It replace your daily makeup remover beautifully because the castor oil is great to wipe out and eliminate dead cells, flaking skin and dirt and will reinforce your eye lashes. Witch Hazel water has some great lenitive effects and almond oil will replenish the skin with nutritive elements perfect to re-generate new cells plus is very delicate, one of the best oil to use around this area.

Detergent milk for eyes:

The following recipe requires distillated water and almond flour but it is very easy to make and it retains all the benefits of the almond oil.

100 ml of distill water

50 gr of almond flour

50 gr of brown sugar

Mix together the almond flour and the brown sugar. Pour the water in and leave it to soak for a couple of hours. Filter with a cloth and retain the liquid. This is a very delicate make up remover milk.

Alternatevely:

These above skin natural recipes are some simple natural remedies very easy to make. You can experiment your own skin care products choosing essential oils and ingredients that you think it will suit you best. I make for instance an eye gel just now mixing 2 tablespoon of Hazel water, 1/2 sweet almond oil and I added some aloe vera gel. I steered till it became very smooth and transparent. I will use it as a eyes gel even as a serum.

      Hi Kerlynb. Thank you for passing by and leaving a comment. I don't know any serum recipes that doesn't involve complicate stuff but I bought glycerin from ebay for a very low price. I good substitute of facial serum are carried oils like the wheat germ or sweet almond oil. The first one is the richest in E vitamin, the second is very indicated for eyes area. Good luck and let me know if you find something and obviously I will do the same.
