We all know that certain foods are good for your health, and we all know the importance of maintaining a healthy and balanced diet. However, did you know that certain foods are actually good for your skin too? And we don’t mean just by eating them – they are actually good to put directly onto your skin.
Whilst we know the benefits of using high quality skincare products such as the range of Obagi Clear that we supply here at Skinstation, we can also see the benefits of using food products alongside your normal skin care routine.
However, before you go hunting down any old food product from your kitchen to use as a face mask – you should read our helpful guide that gives you an idea of the different types of foods that actually double up as brilliant skin care solutions.
Putting lemon juice onto your face is a brilliant way to brighten up your skin and get a healthier looking complexion. It also helps to tighten up your pores and can actually get rid of any unnecessary or additional oil.
Honey is a natural moisturiser that makes a brilliant addition to your daily skin care routine. It helps clear up spots, and can prevent the appearance of acne. It also works to sooth the skin if it’s irritated in any way.
What can’t avocado do? It really is a super food! By using avocado as part of a natural face mask, you are deeply hydrated and providing nourishment for your skin. It’s suitable for any age and any skin type, but will prove especially beneficial for those who suffer from dry skin.
Egg whites have been proven to be an excellent face mask – giving your skin a beautiful and smooth skin tone. They are high in collagen and vitamin A, and contain proteins that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines. They can help clear up problems such as acne, rosacea and other types of red and irritable rashes.
This is the food that you probably already knew about – it’s a classic! Putting cucumber over the eyes can help reduce any swelling on the skin around the eyes, and reduce the appearance of those pesky looking dark circles. Cucumber can also help to soften the skin – as it provides natural moisture.
Strawberries are not only really good to eat, they also make a fantastic cleanser for the face. They help to improve complexion, as strawberry juice is excellent for clearing up problems such as spots and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Oatmeal has several qualities that are very good for the skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties that are especially good for people with sensitive skin, and contains saponins which are a mild cleansing agent. Using oatmeal also helps reduce the appearance of acne and skin rashes, as well as removing dead skin cells. It’s also been proven to help reduce the signs of aging.
