These days, it becomes more and more important for you to do better in taking care of your skin. External factors such as radiation and pollution pose threats to your skin specifically and your health in general. But your search for a way to keep everything under control could also be a double-edged blade.
Companies continue on putting out products they claim as the most effective tool for you to use against the aforementioned threats. They might be beneficial but they are not without risks. You don’t know how many and what kind of chemical compounds those products contain, do you? In no way is this a means to discredit those companies and their products but if you can just do it the natural way, why would you risk it all? Natural body and skin treatments are way more affordable (you can use things you find around), convenient (you don’t have to go to a clinic or something), and healthier (you control everything that involves the treatment).
For example, you can whip up face masker out of finely ground rice. Rice is rich in vitamins C and E. Both vitamins are important components that your skin will thank you for applying. Choose organic rice. Take a handful of it and soak it in clean water overnight. You can grind it to fine powder the next day. Mix with some water to form a paste and apply it directly to your face.
Milk is also a good ingredient to use. No, you don’t have to soak in a bathtub of milk. Just take a clean piece of cloth. Soak the cloth with a few drops of pure milk and wipe it over your skin. To protect your body against UV rays, you can choose safe sunblock products. But if you truly want to stay out of chemicals, you can resort to a long-sleeved shirt or wear a hat outdoor.
If you and are the type to set your greens aside on your plate, this is a good time to rethink your habits. Veggies and fruit are what your body (and skin) needs to survive the harsh condition out there. Their vitamin and mineral contents are sure to meet what your body requires. Veggies can be consumed raw but if you don’t like the taste, you can cook them. Just make sure you process them with less time and less oil. Fruit can be consumed raw and fresh. You can also juice them if you are bored of having them in chunks.
