Allure Beauty Tips From Kitchen
By Temitope Ojo
Radiant and glowing skin is the first step to looking great, but it doesn’t really have to involve expensive skin treatments or skin products.
All one needs to do is go into the little room called the kitchen, pick up a few of those popular ingredients and you’re on your way to curing those skin problems and enhance our beauty without any side effects.
Here are a few kitchen beauty tips ingredients that you can use:
It is pretty much the saviour for your skin. Honey acts as a natural
antiseptic and antifungal, and it’s also a fantastic humectant, which preserves the moisture in the skin. Try dabbing a bit over broken
facial acne to speed the repair process.
Eggs are often used in cooking and baking, but can also be applied on
the face to help ward off wrinkles and to potentially tighten sagging skin. By applying egg whites directly onto your skin, you can give yourself an effective facial without spending a lot of money.
Egg whites can be used as a mask to make the skin tighter and firmer.
To make your own firming mask, separate two eggs into egg whites and yolk. Whip the egg whites with a fork for 10 seconds, and then spread the
egg whites over your skin with your fingers.
Leave the egg whites on your skin for 30 minutes, or until they dry completely.
Wash the dried egg whites off your skin using warm water. Depending on your skin type here is one mask that with slight variations can be used by everyone!
There is a particular compound in potatoes that helps to reduce
swelling and puffiness. Using a vegetable peeler, shred a small amount of potato, let it chill in the fridge for a while, and then place the
chilled potato under your eyes for 15 minutes. When you remove them,
you will find less puffiness under those eyes and it also helps in
reducing dark circles if used regularly. You can also use a potato
slice instead of shredding them but shredded potato is definitely more
Mix a little Cinnamon powder to your favourite lip-gloss to turn it
into a lip-plumper. It can also be used to help dry out acne and exfoliate dull, tired skin by making a facial mask out of honey and
Cinnamon is a very strong spice so a little quantity goes a long way.
This strong smelling, yellowish spice not only works as a great antiseptic but is also great for fading skin discolourations and post-acne scarring.
Mix it with just enough lime juice to make a medium-thickness paste,
and dab onto discoloured skin only.
Leave on for about 20 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
The area treated may take on a temporary yellow tint that should fade with another washing or two.
Regular usage of turmeric not only helps with discoloration but also
helps in getting an acne free healthy skin.
Lemon has natural bleaching properties. It also helps in prevention as well as getting rid of acne. It can be used in face packs or can be
directly applied on the face in order to get rid of discolouration.
Sugar works as a great exfoliator
Mix it with some gram flour and rose water and use it as a scrub on your face to get rid of dead and dry skin.
The lactic acid in milk works wonders when it comes to moisturising
the skin. Dry skin beauties can use it on their face to make their skin soft and supple all year round. It can be applied directly or used in a face pack.
Oatmeal is an excellent natural scrub and is easily available in the
kitchen. It helps in removing dead cells from the face, imparting a
Coffee not only wakes you up from the tired mood, it can also work
wonders on a tired and dull skin due to its exfoliating properties.
Mix grounded Coffee powder in small quantity with your favourite face
wash and you have your very own facial scrub.
