Is dull skin getting your down? If so, don’t despair. You can find ways to bring a glow to your face through using natural face packs. Read on to find out how.
There’s something magical about glowing skin. Nothing else quite gives you the same sheen of beauty and health. The sad fact is, that modern life conspires to rob us of that smoothness and glow.
The causes of dull skin are many; some we can do something about, others we have to live with.
Examples of the latter are age. As we get older, our blood capillaries lessen resulting in less nourishing blood flow, and cellular regeneration slows down meaning old skin stays on our faces longer.
Another factor is pollution. If you live in the city, the air is probably polluted with free radicals which can have a devastating effect on your skin. Most people have little control over their environments but there are ways to minimize the effects of pollution.
But there are many things we can control. These include lifestyle factors such as what we eat, how long we sleep, and whether we smoke and drink. These are obvious things and there’s no secret about what you should do.
If you’ve taken care of your lifestyle and are looking for a way to bring back the maximum glow to your face, the simple effective answer is to use natural face packs.
Natural Face Packs for Glowing Skin
These are simple mixtures you put together using natural ingredients and then apply to your face.
So what are the best ingredients for dull skin?
You’re looking for natural exfoliators to slough off the dull skin on the surface and moisturizers to bring your skin alive.
Fortunately, nature is full of perfect solutions in the form of fruits which work to tone and cleanse our skin gently but powerfully.
They’re also rich in enzymes, vitamins and minerals. Rich in antioxidants, fruits work to fight the free radicals in the environment and help our complexions.
Here are of the best to use on your face:
- The banana helps to cleanse, moisturize and soften skin. It makes a fine face pack just on its own. Just mash it up and apply it to your face.
- Papaya and pineapple are both powerful but gentle exfoliators and can be used individually or blended together.
- Coconut is a sublime moisturizer. Adding in some coconut oil to your fruit pack works wonders with dry skin.
Fruits work wonderfully but for a real power experience, you need to add in some Thai herbs. Lemongrass, Kaffir lime, tamarind and others work synergistically with the fruits to deliver even more power effects on your skin.
You can choose a herb depending on your type of skin. Kaffir lime works well with oily skin, for example.
Another nice routine is to use herbal face packs as part of a regular de-stressing session. As the herbs gently work on your face, you can lie back and relax your mind and lower the stress that contributes to a dull face.
You can’t halt the march of time but you can do your utmost to minimize its effects. Using a face pack for glowing skin is one of the best things you can do to banish dull skin and look your best.
