How many different skin treatments have you spent your money on through trial and error?
With all of the choices out there today, it’s completely overwhelming to know where to start.
The other problem with most of our skincare products today is that there are additional chemicals in them that can be harmful to our bodies. There are more all-natural skincare companies on the rise and that’s great, however, they can be costly.
I want to share with you two highly effective natural products that are easily accessible and that you won’t be able to live without; aloe vera and yogurt.
If you want gorgeous, glowing skin, you will be in for a pleasant surprise!
Aloe vera has antibacterial, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory properties. When consumed, it detoxifies the body and the colon, as well as aids in digestion. And good gut health is strongly related to clear, healthy skin.
Aloe vera can also be used as a topical skin treatment and is extremely hydrating and nourishing to our skin. It maintains elasticity, making it an excellent anti-aging treatment. Because of its antimicrobial properties, aloe vera can also heal and prevent acne.
It also contains medicinal properties that can treat sunburn, insect bites, and eczema.
Yogurt is another natural choice that can give us healthy skin on the inside and outside, as it’s packed with protein, calcium, Vitamin D and probiotics. Probiotics are essential for a healthy gut, which we already know is closely related to healthy skin.
Yogurt also acts as a gentle exfoliant because it contains lactic acid, which dissolves dead skin cells, giving your skin a healthy glow. It also prevents breakouts and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you want to fade blemishes or pigmentation, reduce dark circles or treat a skin infection, yogurt has got you covered.
And guess what? Along with our friend, aloe vera, yogurt can also relieve sunburns!
When you combine these two powerful natural ingredients together, magic happens. Yogurt does wonders at cleansing the skin, while aloe vera gives it a healthy and soft feel.
Here are two of our favorite DIY treatments with these 2 key natural ingredients for gorgeous, glowing skin:
- You’re only how old??: For a potent anti-aging mask, mix 2 tbsp of yogurt, 2 tbsp of fresh aloe vera gel, and 1 tbsp of honey. Apply the paste onto your clean face and neck and leave it on for 20-30 minutes. Rinse with cold water and feel rejuvenated.
- The detoxifier: Mix 2 tbsp of fresh aloe vera gel, 2 tbsp of yogurt, 2 tbsp of cucumber juice, and a few drops of jasmine oil. This gentle combination is great for sensitive skin. Apply the mask to your face and let it sit for about 15 minutes, bringing out all of the dirt and impurities. Rinse with cold water and see your skin glow.
There are many more DIY treatments you can make with yogurt and aloe vera separate, which are also highly recommended since each one on its own has incredible nourishing qualities.
