We spoke to holistic skin maven Sarah Saba from Glow with Sarah to get some top tips for combating every day skin problems the natural way. Using ingredients from your cupboard, you can achieve results without all the chemical nastiness.
GROUND COFFEE EYE MASK
– 2 tablespoons fresh organic ground coffee powder
– 2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
Mix coffee in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil until well blended. Apply the mixture under your eyes and leave it for around 15 minutes. You can also sleep with this mask or wash it off using a mild cleanser if used during the day. Repeat 3 to 4 times a week for quick results.
Dry skin is more prone to wrinkles than oily skin, so it is very important hydrate our skin daily. Using only natural ingredients, this is the perfect facial mask to prevent aging and enjoy youthful skin. If your skin is oily, replace olive oil with grape seed oil, which has a powerful antioxidant effect and is more easily absorbed by the skin.
– 1 egg yolk
– 1 teaspoon olive oil
– 1 very ripe banana
Mash the banana until you have a consistent paste. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolk and add the olive oil. Continue mixing until the oil is well incorporated, then pour the mixture over the banana. Mix all the ingredients.
Apply this mask on your face and let sit for about 15 minutes then rinse with warm water.
Oily skin goes hand in hand with acne, blackheads and large pores. These are the most common face problems that 70% of the population encounters. This natural treatment combats acne and large pores using turmeric, honey and milk, while hydrating your skin.
-1 teaspoon honey
-1 teaspoon turmeric powder
-1 teaspoon low-fat milk
Heat the honey in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds. If you don’t want to use the microwave, you can warm the honey in a bowl of hot water. Mix the warm honey with turmeric powder and a teaspoon of low-fat milk.
Wash your face and immediately apply the mask to your skin with your fingers or a make up brush. Leave it for 30 minutes until it dries. Rinse with warm water.
Repeat this procedure at least 3 times a week.
