Having an even skin tone can be quite a difficult achievement to get nowadays. With our constant exposure to the sun, it’s a little unsettling how darker our skin gets day by day. While we can always turn to the long rows of commercial products available at a purchase, the thought of more chemicals on your skin can be daunting.

Woman Legs, Girl in Pink Cloth Fabric, Slim Leg Smooth SkinThere’s no need to worry as there is an alternative to getting even skin tone without having to dab commercial products onto your skin. You’ll be more relieved to hear that these are not only natural but can also be found at home. That’s like hitting two birds with one stone.

Here are the items to help you get the even ton without using commercial products:

  • Sugar and or salt to exfoliate. While we can’t use these crystals for your face, oatmeal soaked in olive oil should do the trick. Using salt or sugar with a helping of olive oil, scrub the mixture on your skin to cleanse it of the layer of dirt and dead skin cells. Exfoliating helps in clearing out the impurities thus getting you an even texture and complexion.
  • Kiwi can help lighten the dark circles under your eyes. This doesn’t mean it’s okay to skimp on the sleep though.
  • If you don’t have Kiwi, you can use green tea. Simply apply the cold tea bags on dark areas and let it sit for at least fifteen minutes before rinsing off.
  • When life gives you lemons, make use of lemon juice on your skin! Due to its natural acidity, this gives your skin a light exfoliation and you can benefit from a lighter and more radiant result. This is due to the presence of ascorbic acid, or vitamin c as we all know it, in the lemon juice.

With these simple steps, you can enjoy an even tone without having to spend so much or to make use of dubious ingredients.

Finding the perfect skin care companion can be a little difficult especially if you’re leaning more on the organic or natural approach. With how saturated the market is with skin care products, sometimes media can showcase how obsolete home remedies or natural procedures are.

No need to beat yourself with this thought as going natural is not a bad idea. While it can be a little tricky and will need some time to get used to, using a natural body scrub can mean lesser chemicals introduced to your system.

With the trend to switch to natural, you’re not the only one who’s keen on avoiding the chemicals on their skin.

You can use grounded oats drenched in neem oil or argan oil to exfoliate. It’s best to rinse the application with warm water to promote a fresh sensation on your skin.

Now, our bodies have a much sturdier layer of skin which means oatmeal is not the best medium. Sugar or sea salt mixed into cold coconut or olive oil should do the trick. After a thorough scrubbing, it’s best to use some lotion to provide some moisture to your skin.

Your lips too need some exfoliating from time to time therefore whip out some oil mixed with brown sugar and some lemon juice. Gently rub this concoction on your lips and wipe off with a wet cloth. Make sure to apply some lip balm right after to avoid drying up your skin.

With these tips, you’re saving on skin care products and skimping out on strangely named chemicals applied to your skin. A smooth skin can always be acquired with the aid of nature.

Dry Feet Remedies

With the upcoming humid weathers, we’re soon ditching the usage of thick garments and close-footed shoes. In this heat, who can bear to wear a pair of thick boots? It’d probably be weird which is why we swap our winter clothing for much calmer and breezier choices.

Our feet are not excused from this change but one can’t help feeling embarrassed at unsightly dry, cracked feet. No one wants to walk around with dry cracking feet in their sandals so let’s get to the bottom of why this happens.

Why does the skin on our feet crack?

Another cause could be because of your age. As we continue to age, our body is unable to provide as much nutrients thus could lead to a lack of care for our feet. At times, it can also be the weather that can cause your feet to dry out especially if you’re from a humid country.

What can I do to prevent dry feet?

While lotions and moisturizers can be a good solution, they don’t always provide the immediate relief to dry, cracking feet. Some lotions have alcohol which ends up causing your skin to dry up instead of getting back to the supple and healthy feel.

One very effective way to get rid of dry, flaking skin is exfoliating. Exfoliate the rough skin of your feet so that you need not to worry about how your feet look. Exfoliating is a deep cleansing procedure aimed to shed off dead skin cells which happens to be the drying skin on your feet. You also need not worry as it’s best to exfoliate once or twice a week therefore you’re not dedicating a lot of your time to getting your feet done. The best perk about exfoliating is the relaxing approach to taking care of your feet, so don’t miss out on those foot spa sessions if you’re too stressed out.

Last but not the least, keep yourself hydrated! Drinking a lot of water goes a long way, not only for your skin but for your body in general.  Drink at least eight glasses of water a day, or more, if you’re active under the sun.

Following these tips can help you rid and avoid dry feet. You’ll never have to worry about cracking heels by the time you put your sandals or slippers on for summer!

  1. Choose your method. You can either choose to use fake tanners or spray tan. I suggest you avoid the sun beds as it could be very dangerous for your skin.
  2. Choose the product that suits your method. For fake tanners, you can choose from a variety of products like oils, creams and lotions found at Thermalabs. If you plan on spray tanning, better find a complete set of equipment for doing just that.
  3. Be sure to shave body hair before undergoing the process of self-tanning.
  4. Exfoliate beforehand to improve the speed of tanning and enhance results.
  5. Apply the desired product. For fake tanners, be sure to read the labels of the product before doing anything. You can even watch tutorials in the internet with the desired product. For spray tans, make sure to choose a wide area where you can spray freely. Cover the floor with newspapers to protect it from getting stained. When spraying, be sure to apply evenly throughout your body.

After tanning process is completed, moisturize your body every day to prolong the effect on your skin.
