Skin Care Products You Could Eat

 

Did you know that most skincare products on the market are loaded with ingredients that are actually toxic to your skin and body? It’s true. Artificial ingredients and chemicals are used to have a positive effect on the skin.
 

However, those positive effects are often temporary, yet the negative effects last long term because the toxic ingredients are absorbed by the skin and build up within the body. Thankfully, there are many natural and inexpensive options out there, and most of them can be found in your pantry!
 

Below, are some skincare alternatives for healthy, beautiful skin. Just pick your skin type and try adding these natural products to your beauty routine.

 

Oily Skin
Exfoliating - Equal parts sea salt and coconut oil to create a natural scrub to brighten the skin. Gently apply in a circular motion, rinse with warm water, and pat dry.

 

Cleansing - Equal parts castor oil and olive oil. Massage in and wipe off with a warm cloth.
 

Toning - A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water kept cool in the refrigerator to splash on the face.
 

Moisturizing - May not be necessary for oily skin. But if needed, a thin coat of coconut oil will work great.
 

Normal/Combination Skin
Exfoliating - Equal parts sugar (white or brown) and olive oil. Gently apply in a circular motion, rinse with warm water and pat dry.

 

Cleansing - A mix of 1/4 castor oil and ¾ oil (olive or almond). Massage in and wipe off with a warm cloth.

Dry Skin
