first_imgLIFESTYLE AND FASHION WITH MAIRÉAD: Hello! It’s Friday again! As we all know, next weekend’s the Bank Holiday weekend, so many of us will be lying low this weekend, saving ourselves for the big one (and many won’t, they’re hardcore!).If you’re staying in this weekend why not give yourself some homemade DIY pampering! This week I’m going to share some natural products you can use to replenish and nourish your skin.I more than anyone know how easy it is to get lured into the endless age defying, wrinkle reversing, acne preventing claims of conventional products- I’m an absolute sucker for it!However, I have learned that my skins reacts much better to the use of naturals products and they are often cheaper- it’s a win, win!!Below are some of my favourite natural skincare recipes to help you make the switch more easily! Natural Face Wash:Recently I’ve began using the simple and cheap face wash option: Microfiber. The natural body cloth takes off makeup, dirt, etc.You can use this with some pure, organic Liquid Castille soap in water to naturally cleanse the face. A few drops on the wash cloth or in a sink full of water will naturally clean your face.Natural Make-Up Remover: Microfiber works great for this too and even removes mascara without soap or oils.Plain olive or coconut oil will also remove mascara (even waterproof) and will remove other make-up as well but isn’t as ideal if you have oily skin. For oily skin- Liquid Castille soap in water will remove makeup without adding oils to the skin or stripping the natural ones.Moisturiser:Coconut Oil is absolutely everywhere lately and it has an endless amount of uses- moisturising being one! For most people, pure coconut oil is all that is needed for moisturising the face. It is naturally full of collagen supporting lauric acid and is easily absorbed by the skin. Even for oily and acne prone skin, coconut oil’s natural anti-bacterial properties make it a great option.Natural Exfoliators: A sugar/oil scrub is great for most skin types when extra exfoliation is needed. Just mix equal parts oil (coconut, olive, etc.) sugar (white or brown) and honey and use as a whole body exfoliator.For more oily skin, plain baking soda with a little water can be used to exfoliate skin and remove blackheads or dirt.Natural Anti-Aging:There are a ton of anti-aging products available but the best options are the ones you take internally. All of the collagen products that are supposed to firm up skin don’t take into account that collagen must be produced internally and is too large to absorb through the skin.To promote natural collagen production, I’d suggest using coconut oil as a moisturiser and taking Gelatin, Fermented Cod Liver Oil/Butter Blend and Vitamin C to support natural Collagen production internally.So there you have it, my natural skin care range!! Why not give them a try for yourself and see what you think.Hope you enjoyed it,Have a great weekend guys,MairéadXXLIFESTYLE AND FASHION WITH MAIRÉAD: THE ONLY WAY IS NATURAL – HOMEMADE SKINCARE ALTERNATIVES was last modified: April 22nd, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:AlternativesBlogFashionHomemadelifestyleMairead GallagherSkin carelast_img
