Most people wash their face every day. While there are a number of expensive cosmetic options, the following simple household recipes can also help reduce wrinkles for a fraction of the price.
1. Rice vinegar
Method: Add a small amount of rice vinegar to the water to soften and change the pH balance of your skin. Vinegar kills bacteria on your skin, and also cleans the pores — and therefore can help to prevent acne.
The ideal ratio of vinegar to water is 1:20.
2. Green tea
Green tea contains an antioxidant substance that slows down our skin’s aging process. It is also effective in relieving sunburn, tightening the skin, and moisturizing the skin.
Method: Dip one green tea bag in two liters of boiling water, let it cool and then wash your face with the tea.
Salty water is an excellent way to exfoliate and it also tightens the skin. It also helps reduce oiliness, and it will make your skin look fresh and tender, just like a baby!
Method: Add two teaspoons of salt to water.
Honey contains amino acids, enzymes, and vitamins. It helps moisturize the skin and slow down the aging process. It can also help heal wounds.
Method: Add two or three drops of honey to some water and use this to moisten your face. Pat your face gently for a few minutes. This treatment is not recommended for people with oily skin.
5. Rice rinsing water
Rice rinsing water is particularly effective for moisturizing and cleansing. Most importantly, it does not have any side effects, particularly if you are prone to acne, or if you have oily skin.
Method: Warm the day’s rice rinsing water and wash your face with it.
6. White sugar
White sugar is rich in vitamins B1, B2, B6, and vitamin C. It is known for the effects of exfoliating and removing acne scars, and is absolutely safe to use on your skin.
Method: After washing your face, put a small amount of sugar in your hand and add enough water to make a paste-like substance. Massage the paste into your face for one minute and then it rinse off.
