Fatty foods, increased stress and lack of sleep are all reasons your skin may be experiencing some changes, such as bad breakouts or dry patches. And with beauty salons all closed due to strict public health guidelines, your skin could be calling out for some much-needed love and attention.
There’s no need to fret though, as there are plenty of at-home beauty treatments you can do while in self-isolation. And better yet, it won’t cost you a fortune as you’ll most likely have many of the ingredients in your pantry.
Avocados are delicious to eat on toast or mixed into a salad, but they are also a great way to freshen up your skin. The fruit is incredibly hydrating and, mixed with some cocoa powder and honey, it can bring your skin back to life. This mask is especially beneficial for those who’re experiencing dry skin.
Instead of baking another loaf of banana bread, try using the fruit in a DIY face mask. The fruit’s natural vitamins help to hydrate the skin, as well as reducing the appearance of dark spots and destroying bacteria that can cause pimples.
Your teenage years may be well behind you but that doesn’t mean the pimples have disappeared. If you’ve been eating more fatty foods than usual a small breakout is not uncommon.
But fear not, because if you’ve got some turmeric in your pantry those pimples could soon disappear. The spice is a natural antiseptic and helps to fight off bacteria, while also helping to reduce dark circles and soothe dry skin.
