TOP 7 HOME REMEDIES FOR SKIN REJUVENATION

Having youthful, revitalized, healthy and radiant skin is high on the list of priorities for many people these days. However, as we age, our skin loses its elasticity and firmness, which causes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and saggy skin. Luckily, apart from highly-effective cosmetic treatments such as PRP treatment, non-surgical lift, or microneedling, some all-natural home remedies can also help you take years off your face and rejuvenate your skin.

LEMON

Lemon juice is well-known for its skin rejuvenation properties, the ability to minimize various signs of aging and improve the overall skin complexion. This powerful antioxidant, rich in vitamin C and alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), has numerous benefits for the skin – it protects the skin from free radical damage, reduces age spots, brightens the skin, removes dead cells, supports new cell growth and gives back the elasticity to the skin.You can apply lemon juice directly on your skin, or mix it with other ingredients, such as sea salt, honey, or sugar to make a face mask. You could also try making a lemon paste by adding 1 teaspoon of egg white, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, and half a teaspoon of milk cream and then mixing it all together. After applying the paste on your skin, keep it for 15 minutes and repeat the procedure at least once a week to ensure the best results.

CUCUMBER

Keeping your skin properly hydrated is of utmost importance for maintaining radiant, glowing and younger-looking skin and due to its high content of water, cucumber acts as the ultimate natural hydrator for your skin. Its astringent and antioxidant properties help nourish, replenish and soothe your skin, and as such are responsible for giving your skin a youthful look.    If you want your homemade face mask to be even more effective, you can combine cucumber with yogurt and watermelon. Add 2 teaspoons of grated cucumber to a half cup of yogurt and keep it on your face for 20 minutes before washing it off. Repeat two times per week. Another option is to make a mask by mixing the same amount of watermelon pulp and grated cucumber, along with a couple of drops of lemon juice. Keep it on your face until it dries, rinse it off and repeat a couple of times per week.

AVOCADO

Another well-known natural moisturizer that brings back the elasticity and firmness to your skin is avocado. Vitamins A, D, and E are crucial when it comes to treating dry, dull-looking skin, while the omega-3 fatty acids and sterolins assist skin rejuvenation by boosting collagen production and reducing premature aging of the skin. Avocado is also beneficial for treating scars, age spots, and sun damage. Put 1 tablespoon of pureed avocado, 1 tablespoon of honey and 3 tablespoons of fresh cream into a blender and mix until a paste is formed. Keep it on for about half an hour before washing it off.

PAPAYA

This amazing tropical fruit is the ideal all-natural solution for skin rejuvenation since it is packed with vitamins A, C and E which keep your skin moisturized, soft and glowy and help you reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. Papaya is also a great exfoliator – it contains hydroxyl acids that help remove the top dead layer of skin cells which are responsible for the dull look of your skin. In addition, papaya contains an enzyme called papain that is widely known for its antibacterial properties. Firstly, mash ripe papaya fruit to get the pulp. Then, add 2 tablespoons of papaya pulp, half a teaspoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of honey, and mix it all together. Leave it on your face for about 15 minutes and repeat every week.

ORANGE PEEL

If you want to keep your skin healthy and fresh-looking, consider using orange peels. Their benefits are enormous. Firstly, thanks to their high content of vitamin C and citric acid, orange peels have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that help maintain healthy and supple skin. They also help cleanse, exfoliate, brighten and tighten the skin, so make sure not to throw them away. Instead, dry the orange peels under the sun, grind them and make a fine powder. For the ultimate skin rejuvenation face mask, mix 1 teaspoon of milk, 2 teaspoons of gram flour and 1 teaspoon of the orange peel powder. Apply the mask and wash it off after about 15 minutes.

APRICOT

When it comes to skin rejuvenation, apricot is one of the most efficient options out there. This should come as no surprise since apricots are rich in vitamins A, B, and C, lycopene, magnesium, iron, calcium, and sulfur. Apricot pulp helps in maintaining moisturized, soft, radiant skin, offers protection from free radicals, reduces various signs of premature aging and helps address different skin conditions. To make a face mask, put a couple of apricots in water. When they are soaked up, make apricot pulp and mix it with half a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of honey and half a teaspoon of almond oil. Leave it on your face until it dries and then rinse it off.

BANANA

Bananas are another great solution for skin rejuvenation. Since bananas are rich in vitamin B6 and vitamin C, they are highly effective when it comes to moisturizing your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and maintaining your skin tight and elastic. If you want to have youthful and radiant skin, mix 1 medium-sized mashed banana, 1 tablespoon of honey, 2 tablespoons of milk cream, 1 tablespoon of oat flour and enough water to make a paste. Keep the paste on your face for 20 to 30 minutes and use it at least once a week.
