The hands… A vital part of the body used for eating, carrying, feeling, used basically for everything we do. At the same time the hands are the most susceptible to germs and when rubbed on the face or any other part of the body it spreads the same germ at the affected area. Today I would be discussing ways to get younger looking hands and clear age marks through a natural recipe.
Below are the ingredients required for the preparation of this recipe.
Baking is a good exfoliating agent that helps remove dead cells. In addition, it balances pH level of the skin, which is very important to maintain even and clear skin while keeping the skin bright and evenly toned. Baking soda is an easy and inexpensive solution to skin blemish. Baking soda also acts as an inexpensive deodorant to the skin. If you want to avoid the parabens and aluminium found in many deodorants and antiperspirants, try a pinch of baking soda mixed with water instead. This simple paste makes an effective and simple natural deodorant, it also be applied dry.
Milk is a protein drink, rich in vitamin A which improves eye sight, contains lactic acid which will help reduce pigmentation, heal dry skin, hydrate skin, heal acne and relieve sunburn. Milk is also perfect for oily skin as it draws out sebum from within skin pores and tightens pores to. It moisturizes, hydrates and nourishes dry skin, keeps skin looking youthful by combating free radicals that age skin. Milk also boosts collagen production, slows down fine lines and wrinkles, protects skin from free radicals that causes premature ageing. Helps fade dark spots and marks, reduces acne and promotes skin elasticity.
Sometimes are hands get strained and wrinkled as a result of washing, cooking and doing other excess house chores. Yoghurt is perfect in skin exfoliation, cleansing and beauty. Yoghurt contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid that helps to smooth rough, dry skin and prevent premature ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. Lactic acid helps to dissolve dead skin that accumulates in the pores, causing a dull and cakey appearance and aids in closing large pores, making skin look younger. Acne-prone skin also benefit from yoghurt, with its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It is also rich in zinc, which is commonly known to aid in the healing of acne blemishes. Yoghurt naturally kills impurities that lead to breakouts, keeping the skin fresh and clean.
Olive oil has antioxidant properties which helps prevent or reverse damage from cancer-causing ultraviolet radiation. It has a very high concentration of an ingredient called squalene as compared to the other types of fats and oils that humans normally eat. The squalene is what gives olive oil the extra antioxidant boost. It contains vitamins A, D and K which improve skin glow. If you’re prone to acne, using a soap made with olive oil as it may help decrease your acne by killing off the bacteria that causes the acne. Olive oil is also known to moisturize and hydrate your skin.
