Homemade natural skincare for beautiful skin

Homemade skincare with active ingredients such as Vitamin C Vitamin b3, Hyaluronic acid squalane oil

Hi everyone, Liz here (+1 662 830 8246, info@nakedactives.com)

Maybe you are on vacation and you miss your favorite face mask or skincare product or locked up during the global pandemic and do not feel like getting out of your home? Or maybe the stores are closed and you're done with your body scrub? Why not just open up look in the kitchen shelf and make your own homemade body scrub, favorite bath products, soap ?

Looking for a quick solution for problem skin?

A face mask with clay cleans the pores in depth and has a smoothing effect on your skin. To make such a face mask, mix 3 teaspoons of medicinal clay with about 100 ml of water. Apply the mixture on your face and let it dry for about 15 minutes. Then rinse with lukewarm water. Here is another great solution - blend the mask with iced chamomile tea instead of water - chamomile has a natural anti-inflammatory effect and will calm and soothe your skin.

Mask from an apple, honey and yogurt

For soft skin and a radiant complexion, try an apple, honey and yogurt mask. To prepare it, simply mix 3 tablespoons of yogurt with 1 teaspoon of honey and apply on face and upper décolletage. An apple cut into pieces will help load your skin with Vitamins A and C and support the effect of your Vitamin C Serum.

Vitamin C is a great antioxidant that protets your skin from the environment

With a little effort you can achieve a great effect – Quick homemade  body scrub

Now you can soften your skin directly from the kitchen cabinet! 3 teaspoons of coarse sea salt or sugar if you so desire and 3 teaspoons of olive oil will form the perfect base for body scrub. With a little lemon juice, the mixture will turn into a great remedy for cracked elbows for example and will boost the effects of other active ingredients such as Naked Actives Vitamin C that you are using. It is very important to moisturize your skin well afterwards and Naked Actives Hydrating Cleanser is a great solution for this as it gently cleanses and hydrates your skin. The Hyaluronic acid serum will also help keep moisture in and keep your sin hydrated. Try Renew Health’s Day and Night Creams to keep your skin moisturized with amazing anti-aging effects that are offered in much more expensive premium brands.

Soothing home SPA luxury –Mix your own cream bath

A cream bath makes dry skin incredibly soft and smooth.  To prepare your own, mix 100 ml of whipped cream and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl. 1 teaspoon of surfactant such as  liquid soap  will ensure that the cream and oil mix well. For even more benefits, add a few drops of your favorite natural scent such as lavender pine, or rose oil to the water. This will make your bath fragrant and give you complete relaxation.

How to make your own homemade soaps?

It’s not as hard as you might think! For a larger amount of homemade soap you will need 400 grams of vegetable margarine, 250 g of coconut oil, 200 ml of olive oil, 300 ml of distilled water, 137 g of sodium hydroxide (from the pharmacy), and 4 tablespoons of soft oatmeal. Blend the saline solution first. To do this, carefully add sodium hydroxide to the cold distilled water, preferably while wearing an apron and goggles. Be careful –as  the saline solution will heat up very quickly! Put the mix on one side and let it cool for about 1 hour. Now melt the margarine in a suitable pan at low heat. Carefully add the liquid olive  oil and then remove from the heat. As soon as the two liquids have cooled a little, mix them together. Now stir the mixture until it becomes visibly thicker. This is the time when you can add the oatmeal. If you want, you can also add a little aromatic oil  essences such as lemon, rose, pine or lavender, for example, which will add your favorite smell. The next step is to mix the soap mixture in a silicone container in order to shape it and let it harder for at least 1 full day. The next day you can take the soap out of the silicone mold and cut it into smaller pieces . Then you need to let them dry outdoors for about a month. This soap not only hydrates intensely, thanks to the high-quality fats in its content, but also has a great exfoliating effect due to the oatmeal in it.

Liz’s Tip - Add a few drops of your favorite Naked Actives active ingredients to boost the performance of any of the abovementioned homemade skin mixes.
