How To Make A Home-made Natural Skin Toning Cream
One of the topmost on the list of beauty desires of every lady is to have a smooth and even-toned skin. Sun burns, spots, freckles, birthmarks and other discolorations sometimes can be difficult to mask with makeup.
For this many women opt for over-the-counter skin toning creams to permanently clear off these blemishes. However, many of these creams come with a handful of compounds like hydroquinone, parabens, petrolatums, oxybenzones among many others that have been implicated as risk factors for the development of many health conditions like cancers. These of course, excludes the fact that may of them come a high cost.
To save yourself the headache of the health hazards of these creams and also cut down on some cash, you can try out this safe home-made skin toning creams at home with relatively inexpensive ingredients from your kitchen. And whats more? You can expect to see visible results in 14 days.
Almonds, lemon juice and turmeric are some of the most powerful natural skin toning ingredients in the world. They can actually produce visible results comparable to many chemical skin-lightening creams. They’ve been used for centuries for their natural bleaching and brightening properties.
When you combine these ingredients with the nourishing and moisturizing properties of yogurt and honey, the end result is a luxuriously rich skin cream that not only will lighten skin colour, but also will improve the overall health and condition of your skin.
Things You Will Need
1 ½ cups plain organic yogurt
3 or 4 almonds
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. honey
Pinch of ground turmeric
Crush the almonds to powder in a food processor. Watch them carefully. If you process them too long they’ll turn into almond butter. If you don’t have a food processor, you can find pre-crushed almonds at most grocery stores sold as “almond flour” or “almond meal.”
Combine the almond powder with the yogurt, lemon juice, honey and turmeric. Stir until blended thoroughly.
Apply a small amount of skin-lightening cream every night before bed. Do not apply during the day. Lemon juice can react negatively to sun exposure. Also, when skin-lightening cream is used at night, its skin tone-enhancing powers are increased.
At night, skin goes through a recovery cycle in which hormones are released that increase blood circulation and open pores. This process makes it easier for skin creams to penetrate and be absorbed.
Try this simple methods and then you are sure to get results.
