When I was a little girl, I used to spend my summer holidays in the farmhouse of my lovely granny in the company of my friends and sister. Surrounded by awesome nature I loved spending my free time swimming in a cold lake and helping my granny to grow veggies and fruits in her little garden. I always recall the times when the trees were taller and the grass greener with a sweet feeling of nostalgia. Oh, how I miss those summertime meadows from my childhood, but I remember another thing clearly. 

My mom and granny used to craft a whole bunch of different skincare masks made from fresh fruits, berries, and vegetables. Mommy knows what's best, doesn't she? Today I'm going to share with you how you can craft your own wonderful skin care remedies at home to make your skin clean, smooth, and nourished all with natural ingredients. Before using any of these remedies make sure you don't have allergies to any of the ingredients you are going to apply to your skin.

  • Natural & Gentle Skin Exfoliator With Baking Soda & Honey

Honey is a well-known moisturizing ingredient, which softens the skin and even fights acne-causing bacteria. A mixture between honey and fine baking soda will create the most gentle and natural skin scrub, which can be used to remove dead skin cells. Baking soda will make the surface of the skin appear smoother and clean the dirt out of the pores, while honey calms down skin irritations and nourishes the skin. Baking soda and honey skin scrub are good for every skin type.

diy strawberry face mask and milled coffee

  • DIY Fresh Strawberry Skin Mask against Dull Complexion

Apart from being a sweet and refreshing berry with the pure taste of spring, strawberry holds the power of five different acids - ascorbic acid, ellagic acid, citric acid, malic acid, and pantothenic acid. This cocktail of natural acids combats acne, prevents the destruction of collagen in the skin cells, and removes extra sebum from the skin. 

Mash up a few berries and thinly apply the mass on your face and neck, avoiding the under-eye area, wait around five minutes, and wash the mask away with warm water. Your skin will immediately appear to be brighter and purer. If used regularly, a strawberry skin mask whitens the skin (and teeth!), promotes cell regeneration, and reduces excessive skin oil. By the way, you can mix mashed strawberries with milled coffee beans to get natural skin scrub.

  • Cooling Cucumber/Potato Face Mask that Fights Dark Circles & Puffiness

Everlasting dark circles, skin puffiness, and redness are the three horsemen of the sleep deprivation Apocalypse. As a nocturnal person, I always get at least one of these three issues as a companion, especially during summer. My mom always uses thin cucumber, potato, or zucchini slices as a natural remedy against tired eyes and puffiness. The refreshing coolness of these water-based veggies relieves itchiness, restores natural skin balance, and reduces skin discoloration. Slice the cucumber, potato, or zucchini into thin round slices, lay down, and place them on your closed eyes and irritated areas. After a few minutes, you are going to adore the results!

  • Homemade Rose Water Mist For Thirsty Skin

Every beauty junkie knows the benefits of rosewater for the skin. Rosewater elixir has wonderful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, it soothes skin irritations and it holds the power of nature itself. It is made of distilled water and fragrant rose petals and is widely used as a perfume because of its pleasant scent. In the beauty industry, water is usually used as a refreshing skin mist or toner that reduces skin puffiness and supplies thirsty skin with moisture. Davida from Healthy Maven shares a wonderful recipe on how you can make your very own rose water at home.

  • DIY Mono-mask with Cherry with Anti-aging Power

Face masks made of sweet and sour cherries are my favorite. These mouth-watering berries are rich in antioxidants and help your skin to maintain a healthy level of pH. You can craft a mono-mask that contains only cherries or mix them with other fruits and vegetables. Ripe avocado mixed with cherries will nourish dry skin, while a mixture of cherries and honey fights wrinkles and fine lines. Apply a thin coat of mask and leave it on your skin for five to ten minutes, after washing the skin with warm or mineral water. Apply your favorite skin moisturizer to avoid skin dryness.

This vegetable is high in vitamin C which protects the skin from free radicals and prevents the appearance of wrinkles. Mix a fresh pumpkin puree with pink or green clay if you have oily skin and let it dry on your face.
