The spa isn’t the only place for your skin to get pampered. I think it would be more convenient and more relaxing if you try to solve your skin aging problems at home. Going to the spa can be stressful especially during peak hours when you are going to be stuck in traffic. Furthermore, your skin can get stressed out because of UV rays and pollutants when going to the nearest spa center.
Regularly visiting the spa can also cost a lot of money. So here are a few spa tricks that you can conveniently try at home:
1. Don’t throw coffee grounds yet after making your coffee. You can still use them to create a scrub that can help improve the elasticity of the skin tissues in your thighs. These areas usually turn saggy and dimply because of the fats that accumulate under the subcutaneous layers of the dermis.
Gently massage coffee grounds on your thighs. Religiously apply the mask to stimulate better blood flow. You can also try adding green tea to the mixture. This will detoxify your dermis and get rid of the toxins in the skin layers.
2. Make your skin softer and smoother with a good exfoliating scrub. Blend one cup of pineapple cubes, one cup of fresh strawberries and three tablespoons of yogurt. Apply the scrub on your skin.
Pineapple is a natural exfoliant. It contains exfoliating enzymes that can dissolve the bond that allows dead skin cells to cling to the wall of your pores. Strawberries contain small seeds that can also help unseat dirt and dead cells. It also contains antioxidants that can fight the bad effects of free radicals. Yogurt is a good source of lactic acid that can help facilitate a renewal of skin tissues.
3. Get rid of ugly spots and blemishes with the help of lemon juice, mashed avocado and sour milk. Mix these ingredients well and apply the mask all over your skin. Let it sit there for an hour before washing it off.
Lemon juice can inhibit melanin production easily. It also works well in reducing the appearance of age spots. Mashed avocado also contains Vitamin E that can help lubricate cells and tissues. It is also a good source of Vitamin D and linoleic acid that can improve skin structure. Sour milk contains lactic acid that can help slough off dead skin cells and remove the dead layers of the dermis.
After using these spa treatments, immediately apply a hydrating moisturizer. Look for a product that contains CynergyTK and Phytessence Wakame. CynergyTK is a good source of functional keratin. Keratin is a special kind of protein that can help regenerate more collagen and elastin. Phytessence Wakame, on the other hand, can help drive harmful enzymes away. These enzymes tend to damage hyaluronic acid. This is the acid needed to lubricate collagen fibers.
