At the time, nothing feels better than a cooling face mask, a hydrating serum and a refreshed face. However, with overtime use of products on your face can change the chemical structure of your face, make it dull and can also harm your skills cells. The beauty industry has now come in terms with the idea of natural products to use on your skin. Especially the skin on your face, which is more sensitive than any other part. Yet again, many of these naturally occurring substances can be dangerous and show long term effects on the skin. Hence, the best way to treat your face to a natural remedy is to use organic skincare which you can obtain directly from nature. You don’t even have to spend a single penny when you can make it at home. We have a list of a few kitchen ingredients which work magic as a part of your organic skincare routine.

All of us as kids have had their body rubbed with turmeric mixed with oil or yoghurt. Our grandmothers said it was for brighter skin. They weren’t wrong! It may not make you glow like those Fair And Lovely ads (we condemn fairness ads, honestly) but turmeric is an antiseptic perfect for an organic skincare routine.
Furthermore, it has anti=inflammatory and antibacterial benefits to reduce redness, blemishes and acne. Hen, a natural whitening glow! However, it can dry out your skin, so don’t forget to mix it with yoghurt or honey. You can use turmeric as an oil for your skin too or mix it with aloe vera to make a serum.

Honestly, coffee smells delectable. We wonder if it is the smell which makes more than half the population get addicted to it. Moreover, the idea of coffee in our beauty products is more than welcome. Talking about an organic skincare routine, coffee is a stimulating agent. Scrubbing coffee on your skin can increase the blood flow and balance the PH levels of the skin hence making it useful for acne treatment.

The idea of raw eggs on your face may seem redundant but trust us, it can work magic when it comes to firming that ageing skin. Moreover, with the proteins that eggs pack, they also give hydration and elasticity for healthier and glowing skin. Both egg whites and the yolk can be used for the skin, both oily and dry. We suggest using them separately. While the egg yolks are rich in fatty acids, they help in moisturising the skin. Whereas, the egg whites contain albumin, which helps in removing excessive oil and tightening pores. You can make various simple masks with eggs – separated as well as together. However, avoid washing with cold water as that makes the smell stay for longer.

Moreover, it helps hydrate and revitalises the face. If you have been worried about wounds and scars on the face, then rose water is helpful for that too! You can use it as a toner or add in a few drops while making your DIY face masks.
The lesser-known fact is that roses are also a mood enhancer. Getting rid of anxiety, they help you sleep better and reduce stress. After all, a happy mind is a secret getaway to a happy skin.
