Facial Skin Rejuvenation at Home

Posted in Category : Beauty

The skin is one of the most aesthetically pleasing features of a person and, as a result it is given tremendous amount of importance from a cosmetic angle. However, a lot of people do not realize that the condition of the skin is also considered to be one of the foremost barometers used to gauge an individual’s health. The skin is the largest organ in the human body and is the one most exposed to environmental elements as well as trauma and injury. As a result, it is the organ that probably needs to be looked after best. Unfortunately, this does not register with some individuals who seem to assume that the only negative of unhealthy skin is purely on a cosmetic level. Another benefit of healthy skin is the self esteem and self confidence it breeds.

One very important aspect to keep in mind is the fact that bad skin condition could also be a symptom of a more serious underlying condition, in which case the treatment of that condition is the only way to get your skin looking and feeling healthy again. Probably the most common cause of unhealthy or dry skin is excessive exposure to the sun. Another common cause is yo yo dieting – which is when an obese person suddenly goes on a crash diet to lose substantial amounts of weight before regaining that weight in an equally short period of time. This drastic change does not allow the skin enough time to expand and contract effectively – thereby resulting in stretch marks and flabby skin.

Because good looking skin is something that is admired all over the world, there are a number of effective home remedies that could help provide your skin with a certain glow. Yoghurt is known to be very effective in achieving this and you can try applying some amount of the substance on your face for a period of 15 minutes at least twice a week for best results. The application of orange juice is considered to be one of the most effective natural cleansers and helps remove stubborn grime and dust that is commonplace in our over-polluted atmosphere. Apply tomato juice over your face and allow it to settle for a period of 15 minutes. Wash it off with normal tap water as this will help bring a glow back to your face as well. Another option would be to mix a few drops of lemon juice with a little honey and apply it for around 20 minutes before washing it off with cold water.
