Home-Made Skincare Remedies You Should Try

Dry skin giving you problems? Or perhaps you need to battle acne? Before you head out to the drugstore, first check your kitchen. It may just have the perfect homemade remedy for healthy, naturally-glowing skin.

That’s right, from potatoes to tomato juice and even a wholesome olive oil cleanser, your kitchen could have the answer for getting rid of those bothersome acne scars and dry skin problems.

Let’s reveal the mystery behind some of these DIY remedies and see if they glow or not.

Use the Mighty Potato
The potato is one of the unsung heroes of the vegetable patch. This mighty veggie packs quite a punch for your skin, as it can help alleviate blemishes and make your skin glow naturally.

How to Use a Potato to Make Your Skin Glow:
Mash one medium-sized boiled potato into a fine paste. Now gently apply this paste onto your skin as a lovely face mask and leave it like that for 10 to 15 minutes. When done, softly wipe away with a warm, damp cloth. 

You could also cut a couple of thin potato slices and cover your eyes with them. Doing this will help remove any unsightly bags under your eyes.

The potato is a wholesome, handy veggie, and we are happy to include it on our skincare list. 

Turn to the Tomato
Our following DIY skincare remedy comes from the proud tomato. This excellent fruit is a great antioxidant and has plenty of tremendous benefits for our skin. So, you don’t have to do anything as drastic as a fat transplant to get healthy-looking skin. 

How to Use Tomatoes for Healthy Skin:
Mix some tomato juice with a couple of drops of lemon juice. Now apply this to your skin gently by moving in a circular motion. Once done, rinse with lukewarm water. 

This remedy is best when you repeat it daily. The combination of tomato and lemon juice is particularly effective in combating blackheads.

Make a Natural Olive Oil Cleanser to Moisturize Dry Skin
Most household kitchens contain a bottle of olive oil. While olive oil is a staple in some of our favorite dishes, it is also a natural cleanser. In fact, olive oil was long used by the ancient Greeks to make soap. As a bonus, this handy natural oil also acts as a moisturizer while cleaning your skin. This remedy is especially effective for dry skin.

How to Use Olive Oil to Soothe Dry Skin:
First, you should gently rub the olive oil into your skin before draping a warm, damp cloth over your face. Leave the cloth covering your face until it cools down. Now, you can wipe the excess oil off. 

If you don’t want to make an oil cleanser, a couple of drops of olive oil in your evening bath will do wonders. There are many procedures to help alleviate dry skin, but using olive oil is one of our favorites. 

The olive oil is gentle, so it won’t remove your skin’s natural oils, but it will undoubtedly do a great job cleaning and moisturizing your skin.
