Being the most exposed part of the body, but also one of the most fragile, facial skin requires appropriate care. In the face of internal aggression (poor nutrition, stress, lack of sleep ...) and external (pollution, sun, cold, regular use of makeup ...), the facial skin can be damaged. It then follows the appearance of various imperfections including brown spots, blackheads and acne pimples. These factors, coupled with lack of maintenance, also favor the appearance of wrinkles.
Thus, taking care of one's skin is essential in order to preserve its youth and its flexibility, but also to prevent imperfections.

This is why it is recommended to draw in the tricks of our grandmothers. There are a variety of natural recipes that allow you to take care of your skin and overcome imperfections.
So do not waste your money in beauty centers or buy cosmetics. Follow our step-by-step home care.
Before starting a facial treatment, it is important to make sure that the skin is clean. To wash your face, mix 2 tablespoons of milk and a little rose water. Apply the mixture on your face using a cotton ball and let it dry, before rinsing with water.
Exfoliation is a crucial step in all care, because it allows the skin to get rid of impurities, dirt, dead cells and excess sebum, which build up and cause imperfections.
For this, mix one tablespoon of coconut oil and two tablespoons of sugar. Apply the scrub on your face by making circular motions. Massage for 2 to 3 minutes, then rinse.
Effective to clear the airways, steam baths are also excellent for the skin. Indeed, the heat and moisture that are diffused by this technique help to dilate the pores of the skin, which allows them to evacuate the impurities more easily.
In addition, steam baths cause perspiration of the skin. In this way, it gets rid of toxins, excess sebum as well as impurities and makeup residues.
Fill a large bowl of hot water and add a few drops of an essential oil of your choice. Cover your head with a towel and lean your face on the bowl. Do not get too close to the water and close your eyes. Stay like that for 10 minutes.
If you are looking for something more convenient and easier, you can always soak the towel in the bowl, wring it and apply it on your face. In addition to having excellent effects on the skin, it also allows to relax.
The mask :
Now that your skin is all clean and your pores have been unclogged, place to the mask! Mix one tablespoon of honey with a teaspoon of lemon juice and apply to your face. Allow the mask to work for 20 minutes, then rinse with water.
