The easiest at home beauty tips for dull skin? Orange juice! Yes, this is the strangest beauty hack I've ever used.
But oranges (with all that natural vitamin C) really help perk up dull, dehydrate skin. Vitamin C can also help with uneven skin tone and discoloration.
Besides being an exceptional anti-oxidant, vitamin C can also help build collagen, and lighten and brighten your complexion. Because it's so important for healthy, youthful looking skin, I like to use a potent freshly mixed vitamin C serum nightly as an age and sun spot treatment.
This L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) serum can be mixed with any of your favorite moisturizers or anti-oxidant creams. It's best to use this at night or if used during the day, make sure and use a sunscreen.
In between store-bought beauty treatments, you can use natural ingredients like orange juice for a brighter complexion.
The easiest way to get an orange juice facial is to:
Another option - if you have oranges on hand - is to squeeze the orange onto a cotton ball or facial pads and run that all over your face.
Too lazy to find the cotton balls? Try what I do - just cut a fresh orange in half and rub it all over your face, neck and chest.
Before you try any at-home facial - here are some tips to get the most of your experience and to make sure your skin doesn't react
to specific natural ingredients.
Prepare: Always start with a clean face. Examine your skin. Does it have any issues? If it's irritated, wait until it's calmed down before applying any home remedy.
Test: Start with a small dollop of the facial mixture. Apply a to small area on the jawline. Make sure you're not allergic any ingredients. Also, it's best to avoid the eye area since this area is very sensitive.
And speaking of the eyes, while you’re waiting for your facial to do to it’s magic, consider placing some cold tea bags, or cucumber slices on top of your eyes while you sit back and relax.
Finish: Take a warm washcloth and gently massage the concoction off of your face and chin. Make sure to firmly massage the cloth all over the face for more exfoliation action.
Moisturize: On clean, slight damp skin, apply your favorite anti-aging cream or moisturizer. A nice peptide rich cream is a good idea here….since your skin is ready to absorb all its powers.
Massage: While applying the anti-aging cream or moisturizer, take this time to massage the skin well. Skin massage cannot be overlooked! It’s a great way to increase circulation and bring much need oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the skin cells.
Of all the at home beauty tips I've tried, this one always give my skin a unique, beautiful glow.
I'm sure the natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) naturally found in orange juice probably helps too. :-)
