Why I Switched to Home Remedies for Skincare

Skincare

Flawless skin is a dream that every one of us is after. All the skin remedies we try are to get flawless glowing skin. When we see someone with healthy skin, we question what they do, and why can’t we have been blessed with such clear and soft skin. Is it too much to ask for? – is what we always question.

We like so many memes about the random appearance of zits, pimples, acne just before an important event – it is relatable to all of us, isn’t it? I don’t remember how many new products I have tried to get that porcelain shine skin. Don’t look at me; you have done it too. The clear skin with a natural glow, with no zit in view – this seems a distant dream. I still keep working on this. If only I were this persistent in my career, sigh!

Eventually, I started ditching the chemical products I applied to my skin, making a switch to natural remedies, organic products, or cutting off the item altogether from my routine. Let me tell you; my skin feels so much better.

When it comes to skincare, less is more. The fewer chemicals you apply to your face, the healthier it is going to be. We all are aware of that, but under the guise of taking care of our skins, we are sold a lot of products that do more harm than good in the long run. Advertisements are meant to manipulate you into buying products. As a result, we end up buying things we do not even need. Wrinkle creams, way before the age of getting wrinkles, is one of the most common examples.

Cleanser-Toner-Moisturizer is the mantra of the most basic of skincare routines. We try every new face wash, sunscreen, anti-aging cream that hits the market – in the hopes of finding the magic pill to eternally youthful skin. Targeting specific problems and making products directed towards people with different skin types has us buying more products than our poor skin can handle – If dry skin and oily skin, dead skin and patchy skin weren’t enough – you now have combination skin!

We are ever so willing to try anything under the sun to get beautiful skin – I know I was. But one thing that I have learned over time is that clear skin is not an overnight miracle. The flawless, skin that you’ve always desired – blemish and acne-free – is no more a dream, but a reality – the only thing is that we need to learn to turn towards nature for solutions more often than we do.

Whether you have time for intensive skin care or not, pampering yourself by knowing some basic tips is the best way to go. Chug the water, apply aloe vera, apply a homemade face mask. Make a lip scrub at home. Go gaga with the hand and foot scrub from ingredients you can find in the kitchen. You will be shocked at how many natural ingredients from your kitchen can help you achieve glowing skin.

Final Thoughts

While I try to use more natural and homemade remedies, I do invest in organic products from time to time. Sometimes organic products can be expensive, but they are totally worth it. If I buy something that is chemical-based, I try to go fragrance-free and also buy products that are based around popular natural ingredients.
