Homemade Skin Remedies

When it comes to defining beauty, for some, skin health is a primary factor.

It might come as a bit of surprise for a lot of people out there, but the skin is, in fact, one of the largest organs of the human body. Thus if you care for your skin, it can directly affect your overall health.

Today both men and women are actively engaging themselves to take good care of their skins. The cosmetic industry is perhaps one of the most significant sectors that directly feed on our need to look beautiful.

According to a report published on Statista, we find that skincare is the most profitable product category in the cosmetics industry. Market value projections for skincare products alone grew beyond $20.1 billion by the end of last year.

However, many of us often like to have natural remedies for skincare, which is why, in this post, we would like to share with you some homemade products.

So let’s take a quick look at each one of them:

12 Natural Ways To Rejuvenate Your Skin

Acne Spot Treatment

There are several homemade remedies that all use only natural products to help you remove acne.

The honey and cinnamon mask is widely popular due to its excellent nutritional value that provides your skin with plenty of antioxidants. All you need to do is mix two tablespoons of honey, one tablespoon of cinnamon and form a paste. Apply the mask for 10-15 minutes.

Another popular remedy is Apple Cider Vinegar. You can obtain apple cider vinegar from the market. Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with three parts water and apply the mixture with the help of a cotton ball. Let is sit and dry for 5-20 seconds, then rinse and pat dry. Repeat the process one to two times daily.

Almond- Sugar Facial Scrub

In general, sugar scrubs are beneficial for your face as they remove dead skin, restore clogged pores, are a natural humectant, and are excellent exfoliators.

The one we are talking about is a bit special. You will need a quarter cup of superfine sugar, two tablespoons of honey, and two tablespoons of almond oil.

Mix all the ingredients in a small jar and blend them properly. However, make sure that you do not dissolve all of the sugar.

This scrub will not only help you to renew your skin but also make your face look great.


So sweet, so delicious, however, rarely do people know that apricot offers terrific skin benefits.

Having apricots in your diet can help you combat skin damage and wrinkles that are caused by environmental factors such as intensive heat, smoke, and air pollution.

Apricots offer a full dose of antioxidants, plus the fruit also contains vitamins C and E that also aid your skin. Vitamin C helps you protect against UV damage and neutralizing free moving radicals.

Together these vitamins also help you build collagen that provides your skin with extra strength as well as prevents wrinkles from forming.

Avocado-Honey Moisturizer

This homemade recipe is perfect for those who are about to face the full brunt of warm weather coming ahead. Plus, its all-natural ingredients will offer you a break from all those mascaras and lipsticks for a while.

What you need is 2 to 3 avocados and a quarter cup of honey (yes, we know that is a lot), but so is this heavy-duty face mask.

Simply cut the fruit in half, mash it up without the pits, transfer to a bowl, add the honey, and blend it.

To use, rub onto your face with your hands and leave it on for 15 minutes to combat dry skin.

Banana Mash

Feel like a minion yet? This one is so easy that you might end up putting the fruits all over your face instead of eating it in your lifetime.

The banana is one of those fruits that you can simply smear all over your face. Yes, that’s right. You see, bananas are an all-natural moisturizer for your skin, which makes it perfect for mashing them into a face mask.

You can easily take a banana of medium size and mash into a smooth paste, considering they are already so soft.

Make sure you are picking the ideal banana that is ripe, not too mature, and rot free absolutely.

Then gently apply the freshly made paste to your face and neck area, also, if you prefer. Let it sit for 10-20 minutes and then rinse with cold water.

Basil Toner

What can this toner do for you, it can help you fight acne, remove dark spots, soothe your skin, stimulate blood circulation, and has anti-aging elements to name a few.

Basil is a herb and used as a spice in many dishes. All you need are 30 fresh basil leaves and a half cup of boiling water. Simply double the amounts of leaves for super-strong toner.

Put the two ingredients in a blender and blend them until a smooth mixture emerges.

To use simply dab cotton pads with the toner and apply on the face using a sweeping motion in the upward direction. You can have this toner on your skin for hours, maybe even go for a nap. But do rinse clean afterward.

Citrusy Orange Peels

Some like skin to glow and be radiant, their wish is our command; enter the orange with its peels.

The peels have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which make it exceptional to treat oily skin and acne. Plus, they can also do wonders for face marks and pigmentations.

The best way to use orange peels is in powder form. Simply dry the skin under the hot, dry sun and powder it.

Now you can use this with other ingredients to get younger, clearer, and fresh skin. Orange peel goes well with yogurt, honey + turmeric, and walnut powder + sandalwood paste.

Coconut Deep Conditioner

Many cultures and traditions consider coconut milk/water a miracle liquid. The younger the coconut, the best water they produce.

Coconut water is high in sugar and certain electrolytes, making them packed with nutritional value.

You can use coconut water as a makeup remover. Simply add two parts of olive oil to one part coconut milk, mix well, and then apply with a cotton pad.

To make a facial scrub, however, all you need to do is soak oats in coconut milk for 10 minutes and then apply the residue on your face.

Fruity Watermelon and Cucumber Pack

You need only two ingredients for this as the name applies.

Get hold of some watermelon juice and have a cucumber pulp ready in a bowl. Mix the two ingredients both to the point where you get a paste that feels even and more consistent.

Use your hands or cotton pads to apply it on your face or neck, leave it one for about 10-15 minutes. You can repeat this however twice a week only as per professional advice.

Java Lip Exfoliator

Java lovers have their lip exfoliator. The ground-up coffee beans used in the recipe can leave anyone infatuated, plus the aroma of sugar and coffee combined would spark energy into you never like before.

To create your very own Java Lip Exfoliator at home, you will need a half teaspoon of moisturizing lotion, a quarter teaspoon of fresh coffee grounds, and just a pinch of Kosher Salt.

Mix all the ingredients. Lastly, apply to all of your mouth area and massage for a few minutes.

Lemon-Agave Age Spot Fighter

It might sound a bit tough to handle, but the benefits are there for you to reap.

You will need half a cup of cooked rice, one tablespoon of agave nectar, and one tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix them all and blend them.

Apply the mixture around your hands in a circular motion. You can use firm and gentle pressures for two to three minutes for the back of your hands. You can also rub the rice on the palms of your hands to soften calluses.

Papaya Magic

Another fruit on our list where you can just mash and smash it on to your skin, papaya, offers you alpha-hydroxy acids for replenishing your skin.

The papain enzyme is a powerful exfoliator that removes dead skin cells and dissolves inactive proteins. Papaya can also make your skin feel lighter and softer.
