Here are a few things that can be added to your cleansers to help your skin if they aren’t already part of your diet.
1. Natural Yogurt
This will soften skin & is also a natural anti-fungal & antibacterial agent, so add it to your cleanser & store in the fridge.
2. Ground Sunflower Seeds
Sunflower seeds that have been pulsed a few times in a blender are fantastic to add into any exfoliating facial products. They aren’t as harsh as sea salt & are a great source of Vitamin E.
This is a nutritious addition for your nourishing cleanser. It moisturises which helps dry skin, promotes rejuvenation & assists in rebuilding natural defences against the sun, heat & general damage from the elements.
4. Kiwi Fruit
Liquefied kiwi is packed with vitamin C & it’s a natural source of skin refining fruit acids. These help even out skin tone & seal in moisture. Use if you want to minimise pores & promote a smooth, even complexion.
This is used in many commercial cleanser & facial scrubs to eliminate blemishes & dark marks. It helps regulate skin texture & also has astringent properties making it an excellent chemical exfoliant.
6. Brewer’s Yeast
This helps regulate oily & blemished skin & contributes to an even skin tone. Also use it to help control mild outbreaks of acne.
7. Almond Oil
This ingredient is great to include if you’re battling with very sensitive, dry skin. It sooths & sinks into pores very quickly, delivering nutrients & moisture directly where they need to be without leaving behind any sort of residue on your skin’s surface.
It is a natural antibacterial & can help defend against acne-causing germs. Its antioxidants will battle against free radicals & is also an organic skin softner.
