Try These DIY Organic Face Masks

fybc

 

 

Honey, Green Tea, and  Oatmeal Mask

This mask is wonderful for combination, oil or skin with acne. Just as if you were preparing your nighttime tea, soak a green tea bag in boiling water. Next, squeeze out the water from the tea bag into a mixing bowl. With the same tea bag, boil more water and use it to steam your face. Once the facial steaming is complete, begin concocting your face mask.

Mix the ground oatmeal, vitamin c powder and honey in a medium bowl. Don’t be afraid to experiment with the amount of each of the ingredients. Keep in mind that too much vitamin c will not only be hard to dissolve in the water but also it can irritate your skin. Next, apply the mask to your face and neck, but do so in an environment you aren’t afraid to get messy in. This mask takes some time to harden, so we suggest doing this mask when you have a minimum of an hour. There is no set amount of time to keep this mask on. We say the longer the better.

Ingredients:

2 Teaspoons honey

2 Teaspoons Ground Oatmeal

2 Teaspoons Water

Green Teabag

1/2 Teaspoon Vitamin C Powder

Oats, Eggs and Green Tea

Cut open 3 green tea teabags and empty the inside contents into a bowl. Squeeze a small amount of your normal moisturizer into the bowl. If you are looking to exfoliate, add  sea salt or granulated sugar into the mixture. Next, add in the 2 egg yolks, the rolled oats and a small amount of water and mix these ingredients together. If you are having trouble reaching the desired consistency, add more oats and water. In order to open the pores of your skin, rise gently with hot water before applying. Keep the mask on for 15 minutes then rise!

Ingredients:

3 Green Teabags

Facial moisturizer

Sea Salt or Granulated Sugar

2 Egg Yolks

Water

Rolled Oats

Getting into the holiday spirit does not just end with decorating your tree! You can get festive with your skin care this season with peppermint oil. Clear and happy skin is possible and we have some fun tips for you to embrace this month. Here are three ways to user peppermint oil and how it can benefit your skin.

  1. Makes Your Skin Brighter – Before applying your nightly moisturizer, add a drop of peppermint oil into the night cream. Apply the moisturizer to your skin as usual. The peppermint oil will brighten up your skin and keep you glowing.
  2. Controls Acne – Peppermint oil controls excess oils and prevents clogged pores. If you are dealing with poor skin, give this essential oil a try.
  3. Facial Mask for Clear Skin – To create a mask take 2 spoons of grated cucumber and 5 ml of peppermint oil (diluted). Whisk the components together and add 2 spoons of green clay to the mixture. Use the paste as a face mask. Let it dry and wash off with warm water. It clears the skin and absorbs the excess oil.

Pumpkin: For More Than Just Carving

 

fyAutumn is upon us, which means we no longer have to feel shy about our love for all things pumpkin. Although pumpkin is commonly looked upon as a flavor of delicious desserts and foods, pumpkin in its original form, is packed with vitamin C, E, B and beta-carotene. This means along with being tasty, pumpkin can improve the health of your skin and hair. Get cozy, grab a PSL and learn all there is to know about the wonderful benefits pumpkin can have on your skin this season. If you are looking to improve the overall health and quality of your skin, applying pumpkin facials or adding it to your diet can help immensely.

B Vitamins: 

Pumpkin contains a strong source of most all the B vitamins, including niacin, B6 and folate. Niacin directly helps with the treatment of acne! Folate helps your skin cells renew faster!

Vitamin C: 

Vitamin C helps protect and prevent wrinkles and even skin cancer.  Eating vitamin C rich foods, like pumpkin encourage collagen production! Eat more pumpkin and your skin is sure to become more elastic.

Minerals: 

Pumpkin contains abundant sources of copper, magnesium, and iron. Zinc fights acne, maintains current collagen in your skin, and protects the cell membrane. Pumpkin is also rich in zinc and copper, which is crucial to healthy skin.

Carotenoids: 

Have you ever wondered why are pumpkins orange? Alpha-carotene, beta-carotene are protective antioxidants responsible for giving pumpkins their color. Food that is rich in carotenoids are known to help reverse UV damage and improve the overall texture of your skin.

Besides the consumption of pumpkin, you can receive its many benefits by incorporating pumpkin into masks, facial creams or peels. Here is a great face mask that will rejuvenate and restore your skin.

  • 1/2 can of pumpkin puree

5 Things To Do For Your Skin This Fall

fybc.jpgIn the coming months your skin is going to be exposed to colder outdoor temperatures, high wind, low humidity and blazing indoor heat. Although avoiding the elements is virtually unavoidable, there are ways you can combat and lessen the effects of the change in weather and temperature. Our team of skin specialists are some of the best in the Denver area. We know what it takes to get you through this fall and winter looking your best. Here are some of our at home skincare secrets that will leave you feeling smooth from head to toe.

Moisturize x2

Although this seems like a given, most people don’t moisturize properly or as frequent as they should. The most important rule is to moisturize with lotion after your shower. Find another time during the day to reapply. Set yourself up to reapply multiple times a day by keep your favorite lotion by your bedside or with you at work. Finding a lotion that isn’t too thick and creamy is always a plus.

A Humidifier Works Wonders

This may be the easiest yet most important tip of them all. Not only will you see immediate affects, but you don’t have to actively do anything to get positive results! Leave your humidifier running while you are sleeping. Not only will your skin be better moisturized in the morning but you will breathe better through the night.

Ditch the Harsh Soap

Get yourself a mild soap and cleanser. One of the biggest mistakes people make when caring for their skin is how harsh they handle it. Scrubbing your face till it’s irritated is one of the worst things you could do during chillier months. Avoid products with glycolic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Get a cleanser with oils and fats. Cleanse your face with the help of a brush for a deep cleanse but without harsh pressure.

Less Tub Time

This is our least favorite tip too. Although we all love a long bath, time spent in the tub washes away a great deal of your essential and protective oils. You need these oils as your skin gets drier. Protective oils ensure that your skin holds on to its natural moisture, for longer. Cut your bath time to 15 minutes or less for better moisturized skin.

Drink Water and Eat Better

Hydrating from the inside is an essential step. The presence of water gives your skin firmer and plumper qualities. For the best results, drink 2-4 glasses a day. As for your dietary intake, you are what you eat. If you are supplying your body with antioxidants and fatty acids, your body will not only feel healthier from the inside but will translate that positivity to your skin.

By adding these skin tips to your daily regimen, your skin can make it through the colder months looking fresh and hydrated. Support the care you are giving your skin at home with our services. One of our chemical peels, microdermabrasion or other facials can help. For an appointment, call or book online today.
