All-natural Skincare

Let me suggest a couple of non-messy, all natural skincare regimens that you can do at home.

Cream-and-sugar scrub
  • fine sugar
  • plain cream (the kind for coffee/tea), milk or plain yogurt, preferably organic

Damp your face, put a teaspoonful of sugar in your palm, mix it with a tablespoonful of either cream, milk or yogurt. Lather gently on your entire face, carefully avoiding the eye area. Rinse off with cool water and pat dry. Voilà! Silky skin for a whole week to come.

Cucumber Mask
This mask gives the skin a boost of enzymes and vitamins, keeps fair skin fair, and improves homogeneity of the skin tone.

Organic cucumber

Chop the cucumber into paper-thin slices, as pictured. This way each slice will fit the contour of your face, much like a mask. Avoid the delicate eye area. Enjoy the soothing aroma of the cucumber, and wait five to 10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water and pat dry. Instantly brighter skin!

I have yet to try it. I use a honey/aspirin mask 1-2 times a week but I usually scrub my face twice a week. I also use green tea on my face. I have all sorts of masks but I like the idea of something natural and organic on my face.

hi chi, i hear that masks are generally good for Mediterranean skin, which is often VERY combination. let me know if the cream-and-sugar scrub works out. if u're concerned with oiliness, try skim milk instead of cream :-)

hi starlit, yea i saw your site & we have the same template, lol. my skintype's normal, i'd say. i definitely don't recommend the cream-and-sugar scrub when acnes are present. dun forget that u can use skin milk instead of cream cos it's lighter. also, u can let the milk and sugar mix sit in your palm, or a little bowl for a while so the sugar crystals melt a little. They'll be less abrasive that way.
