Home Remedies to Keep Normal Skin Looking Young
If you have normal skin, you may feel like you’ve won the skin care lottery. But despite what the name may suggest, normal skin requires just as much care as oily skin, dry skin, or combination skin. Before you rush out to rake up as many anti aging skin care products as you can, take a look around your home—you may already have everything you need to make your own anti-aging home remedies for normal skin.
Normal skin is characterized by being neither too dry nor too oily. Normal skin has few visible imperfections and isn’t usually sensitive, however, it takes maintenance to keep it that way—that means maintaining skin tone, texture, and circulation, as well as an even complexion. Most women fall into the normal skin category.
Treating and maintaining normal skin means finding a balance. You can’t use products and techniques for dry skin because they will make your face too oily, and oily skin treatments will make your face too dry. Of course, there are plenty of recommended anti-aging skin care products to treat normal skin. But normal skin is a lot easier to manage than other skin types, so your options for anti-aging home remedies are a lot more diverse—and a lot less expensive.
Here are some of the best ingredients when making your own anti-aging skin care products for normal skin:
Using the correct combinations of oils will allow you to create a variety of effective anti-aging home remedies for normal skin. To create your own moisturizer for normal skin, use a combination of natural oils like rose, lavender, and neroli. Also, try combining lavender, geranium, and jasmine with almond oil to improve the strength of your normal skin, as well as to control the amount of body oils.
Many oils work on their own as anti-aging home remedies, especially on normal skin. Look for oils that contain a lot of vitamins—carrot oil contains vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, and sunflower oil contains vitamins A, B, D, and E.
Fruits and Vegetables
To keep your normal skin feeling fresh, try making something in the kitchen. Many fruits and vegetables can be used to make home remedies for normal skin. Ingredients like apples, grapes, cucumbers, and mint, when mixed with beverages like natural juice, green tea, and wine, can make effective—and, most importantly, chemical-free—homemade facial toners. For homemade face masks, fruits and veggies like lemons, bananas, grapes, apples, and grapefruits can be used to maintain the texture and smoothness of normal skin.
There’s a wealth of great recipes out there for homemade, food-based anti-aging skin care products for normal skin. The trick is to find one you like based on the ingredients in it—you may love the smell of bananas, but hate the smell of mint.
Even though you’re using these foods in your homemade anti-aging skin care products, you should still be eating them regularly—especially those that contain vitamins C and E—or at least take equivalent vitamin supplements.
Even if you don’t have any of the appropriate oils, fruits, or vegetables around the house to make these homemade products, you definitely have immediate access to water. Maintain your normal skin’s moisture by drinking a minimum of eight glasses of water over the course of the day. When going to bed, rinse your face with warm water to keep your pores clean—hot water will dry normal skin out—and then energize your skin with cold water afterwards.
