The old saying goes, “You are what you eat”. But, did you know that what you eat can also double as a topical skin treatment? I’ve shared tips about turning lemon juice into a face mask and using sea salt as an anti-acne remedy, and today I’ll tell you about a few more of my favorite DIY at-home natural treatments for healthy, glowing skin.

At-Home Natural Treatments

Lemon Juice: Lemon juice is a wonderful detoxification agent, as it helps purify the blood stream and clean the liver. In addition, it can help soften dry skin on elbows and knees. Just squeeze lemon juice over any rough patches and allow the juice to stay on your skin for up to 10 minutes before rinsing with cool water. The natural acids in the fruit encourage exfoliation in addition to lightening the (dark, ashy) skin tone.

Jojoba Oil: Jojoba oil is one of the best multi-tasking treatment ever! It acts as a make-up removal, skin moisturizer, and pore cleanser in one step. Gently rub a teaspoonful of oil all over your face (including your eyelids) for about 1-2 minutes. Then using cool water, wash your face with your normal cleansing solution. The oil will not make your skin break-out (surprisingly, it does the opposite, by unclogging pores), and will thoroughly remove all traces of make-up, which makes your cleansing process more thorough. 

Ice Cubes: If you wake up with a puffy face (caused from too much sodium or alcohol), wrap ice cubes in cheesecloth and lightly rub your face in an upward motion. The ice will help reduce inflammation, while stimulating circulation. 

Oatmeal: Oatmeal is a great way to start (and end) your day. Eating it for breakfast will not only fill you up, but it’s also a wonderful source of fiber. Adding oatmeal to your evening bath will help eliminate sore, cracked skin.

Although manufacturers are always conducting scientific studies to develop the newest and greatest beauty breakthroughs (from glycolic peels to deep wrinkle serums), sometimes the most effective at-home natural treatments come from our own kitchens.
