When the spring season arrives, you instantly go into summer planning mode that’s when shopping and vacation planning become a priority. But the most important item that probably isn’t listed on your list is to prepare your skin for those intense high temperatures. Your skin reacts to the foods you eat, the amount or kind of liquid intake, the products you use, and even the air in the atmosphere. Here are some tips that will help make the process much easier and still let you enjoy your guilty pleasures while not blowing your budget.
1. Water: Water Intake is the first thing that we say is important to clear our skin, but we are all guilty of talking about it but not taking advantage of this complimentary solution that we can easily incorporate into our routine. Drinking 9.5 cups of water a day for 4 weeks straight alters your skin density and thickness. Water also fends off any breakouts by decreasing the concentration of oil in your skin.
2. Lemon: An old Spanish remedy that my mother would have me do is to take lemon juice and squeeze it onto a cotton ball and clean my entire face and neck with it. Lemon contains citric acid that helps remove dead cells and reduce dark spots.
3. Honey: Honey is a great moisturizer and has antibacterial properties that will give you a refreshed look afterwards. Apply the fresh honey onto your skin, let it dry, and rinse with warm water.
These easy DIY tips will allow you to achieve flawless skin without breaking the bank and leave your skin summer ready for those unforgettable memories.
