Skin Products – How To Replicate The Best Skin Products In The Market
What are your favourite skin products? Mine is this natural whitening cream that keeps my skin firm and supple. It also works in removing dark spots. I use it as a scar remover as well.
Have you ever tried replicating the skin products you are using? While those products might work well in solving your skin issues, most of the potency of the natural ingredients in them are gone by the time the product is bottled up. If you use some of the ingredients incorporated in them on your skin in its raw form, you could be on the road for better skin recovery.
Whitening Skin Products
Check the back label of your natural whitening product. What does it contain? I’ll bet my dollar that it contains lemon juice, papaya extract, mulberry extract or pineapple extract. These ingredients are some of the most potent whitening ingredients today.
To replicate this product, try squeezing about a cup of lemon juice. Mash one ripe papaya. The fruit should have a little give to it when you press it with your fingers. If not, you can try ripening it first by putting it in a brown paper bag and putting it in your pantry. Once it has ripened up, peel and deseed it. Cut it into chunks and blend it well. Mix it with lemon juice. You can also add mulberry extract or pineapple extract if you want. Just mash these ingredients together.
Add glycerine for an extra softening effect to your skin although lemon and papaya should already work in making your skin look and feel softer. Apply it on your skin as a mask. Leave it there for an hour before washing it off. Use this once a day for best results.
Anti Aging Products
All anti aging skin products contain ingredients that can boost the production of collagen. They also contain antioxidants. Collagen-boosters can also be found in natural sources. Try looking for black pearl powder. This is available in Chinese health and wellness stores. It purportedly contains a wealth of amino acids that can boost collagen production in the dermis.
You can also look for Wakame Kelp. This is a Japanese sea weed often seen in Japanese foods. It can help prevent the gradual loss of hyaluronic acid. This is the acid needed by the skin to lubricate collagen fibers. Collagen fibers are less likely to get damaged if there is an abundant amount of hyaluronic acid in the dermis.
Wakame kelp can also be found in Asian grocery stores. Use this as a facial mask or mix it up with a bit of black pearl powder.
Antioxidants are everywhere. You can find it in fruits like oranges and dragon fruit. Eat these fruits or use them topically. Antioxidants are essential in fighting the harmful effects of free radicals.
