Have you ever thought of switching from conventional skin care products to making yours the natural way? Advertisements will give the impression that shelf products sold in drug stores have all the ingredients needed to keep your skin healthy. The downside of these regular skin care products is that you never know how they came to be – if toxic ingredients or harmful chemicals were used when making them.

Only brands like Premier Dead Sea which use natural elements from, as the name suggests, the Dead Sea, in the development of their products can be trusted. You will discover that homemade skin care recipes are much better and safer. It also means that you get to spend less money on skin care. Here are some of DIY skin care recipes, courtesy of Premier Dead Sea.

 

  • Detoxifying Face Mask

 

Ingredients

4 capsules activated charcoal
½ cup bentonite clay
1 tablespoon oatmeal (finely ground)
1 tablespoon green tea (finely ground)
1 tablespoon hibiscus (finely ground)
1 tablespoon rosehips (finely ground)

Directions

  • Thoroughly mix all the powders in a glass or wooden bowl. Don’t use non-metal utensils (to avoid the deactivation of the negative charge in the bentonite clay).
  • You need to store the face mask in a plastic container or glass in a cool, dark place.

Using the Detoxifying mask

Mix one or two tablespoons of the powdered mud mask with two to four tablespoons of hydrosol.( you may also use herbal tea, yoghurt, milk honey or fresh juice for extra heat) Allow the mud to sit for five minutes then apply it to your face. Allow the mask to stay between 15 to 20 minutes, spraying your face with either hydrosol, water or toner when it when it starts to dry or tighten. Rinse your face gently with a cloth and after that use a moisturizer (to close the pores and lock in the moisture).

Using a mask on a regular basis will do wonders to your facial skin, as explained in this YouTube video by Niki Murphy, a beauty and fashion guru.

  • Sea Salt Scrub

Just the way Premier Dead Sea uses salt from the Dead Sea to make its skin care products – they even have their own beach, the Dead Sea Premier Ein Bokek beach on Trip Advisor – you can also make your own. Salt from the sea has nutrients and minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium which are beneficial to your skin. Sea salt has anti-inflammatory properties and helps reduce irritation, soothes the skin and balances oil production. Here is a recipe for a homemade scrub.

Ingredients

2 teaspoons real salt

4 teaspoons raw honey

Directions

Mix the raw honey and real salt in a small bowl. Apply the mix evenly to clean skin. Let it stay like that of 15 minutes then rinse.

There are countless other recipes for these natural skin care products. They are always safe and environmental friendly. If you’re looking forward to making the products for yourself, check to see they are unprocessed and without harmful chemicals or anything artificial. The reason for this is that the closer to nature the natural skin product is, the more your skin will benefit from it.
