Hi friends, In this Post, I wanted to share a glass skincare routine for dry skin. Glass skin refers to blemish – free skin with even skin tone. Contrary to what many people believe, we need not use expensive store-bought products to achieve glass skin. We can do this with the natural ingredients that we can easily access.
NATURAL GLASS SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR DRY SKIN
This skin care routine consists of a foaming honey face wash that is very hydrating, a nourishing cream that can be made under 2 minutes, a wonderful scrub and finally a hydrating face pack that nourishes even the driest skin very well.
1. Honey Face Wash:
To make the honey face wash-
- Take three tablespoons of liquid castile soap in a bowl.
- Add in 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of water to it.
- Finally, add to it a teaspoon of organic raw, unprocessed honey.
- Mix well with a spoon.
This face wash is very hydrating and super nourishing. Liquid castile soap is very gentle on the skin compared to other chemical based soaps and if you’re a person who loves your face wash to foam but prefers it to be natural then liquid castile soap is a good option.
Honey added to the recipe is very hydrating and nourishing. You can store this face wash at room temperature for a few weeks. So it is perfect for people who are traveling often and for students who are staying in hostels. I have not used any essential oil for this recipe. But if you like you can use soothing essential oils like lavender to make it smell good.
2. Nourishing Creem:
To make the face cream-
- Take one and a half tablespoons of raw organic cocoa butter in a cup.
- Add to it a teaspoon of cold pressed sweet almond oil.
- Lastly, add three drops of your favorite essential oil.
- Now mix well with a spoon until you get a smooth, silky cream.
Since it is peak summer here in India, the cocoa butter is very soft. so I just mixed all the ingredients with a spoon but if you are living in a cold place and cocoa butter is hard, you can use a hand blender to mix the ingredients together. Once mixed well, store this cream in a cool place. It will last well for weeks together room temperature.
To use, take a little bit of the cream and massage it all over the face and neck. You can use this cream any time of the day. I have used cocoa butter but you can use other natural butter like shea or kokum butter too. This cream is extremely good for dry skin.
3. Orange Scrub:
- Take a tablespoon of rice flour in a cup.
- Now cut an orange and squeeze into enough orange juice to form a smooth paste.
- Now mix well and create a spreadable paste.
This is one of my favorite scrubs that I use once a week. I have dry skin and this simple scrub exfoliates my skin with fading dark spots and blemishes without drying out my skin at all.
Orange juice does not irritate the skin like lemon juice but if you have extremely dry skin, you can add in few drops of any unrefined oil of your choice to this mixture too.
4. Hydrating Face Pack:
For the face pack-
- Take a tablespoon of gram flour in a bowl.
- Add to it now a teaspoon of raw unprocessed organic honey.
- Finally, add in cucumber juice.
- Now mix well with a spoon.
To make the cucumber juice, take half a cucumber, wash well and grind in a mixer without adding any water and strain. If you are not using organic cucumber, remove the skin and then grind. To use, weekly once, after using the scrub, apply this face pack all over the face and neck and then wash it off.
This pack is a wonderful hydrating face pack that will brighten dry dull skin very fast.
Use the face wash and cream daily and the pack and the scrub weekly once or twice. Try to follow this routine regularly and you’ll find that your skin is not dry anymore. Try to focus on using hydrating natural good quality ingredients and I guarantee you’ll achieve glass skin effortlessly in no time at all.
