Having beautiful skin that looks perpetually youthful and deeply radiant is one trend
that will never go out of style. Every woman has her own little beauty secret and
a slew of skin care tips to enhance skin suppleness and keep it wrinkle free for
as long as possible.
One commonly traveled route taken by many beauty enthusiasts to reach their dream
of “perfect skin” is to prowl the skincare aisle every month for the latest hi-tech
and often high cost quick solutions. But if you are less than willing to blow hundreds
of dollars on unthinkably expensive lotions and serums, or spa facials, then these
will come to your rescue – brilliantly simple wrinkle-stopping homemade butter face
mask recipes that are a real delight for both your skin and wallet.
You may have probably heard of high profile celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Jessica
Alba and Sarah Michelle Gellar who attribute their amazingly satiny smooth skin to
body butters such as shea, mango, cocoa and kukui nut. But do you know that this
humble kitchen ingredient – butter – you have in your refrigerator also offers a
multitude of remarkable skin-conditioning benefits? Using butter on face regularly
will leave it intensely hydrated and glowing beautifully with vitality as it decreases
skin roughness. Plus butter helps diminish appearance of fine lines and wrinkles,
and believe it or not, correct skin pigmentation issues as well. Here’s why...
Butter contains boatloads of potent antioxidants Vitamin A and E, which are essential
for maintaing healthy skin and hair. If your skin is deficient in Vitamin A, it can
become dry, rough and flaky among other problems. Vitamin E not only prevents free
radical damage that causes skin discolorations such as freckles and age spots, it
is also a super effective hydrating agent to help skin replenish lost mositure due
to various factors like aging, poorly balanced diet and enviromental damage. As such,
it is especially helpful for mositure-hungry mature skin that is dry and leathery
in appearance. The result is visibly plumper, clearer and dewy skin.
With that being said, it’s almost impossible to have younger-looking skin if you
are not diligent about mositurizing and not careful with what you eat.
The best time to moisturize your face is when it is scrubbed clean or right after
a shower while your skin is still damp. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells on the
surface to help skin better absorb the moisturizer while showering in warm water
helps open your pores to allow moisturizers to soak in and do their magic.
An antioxidant-rich diet that includes loads of Vitamin C-packed leafy greens such
as kale and spinanch, along with plenty of brightly colored fruits like orange, strawberry
and blueberry, will help build collagen for firmer and more elastic skin.
Very importanly, ditch slutty brownies and sinful chocolates. The reason is sugar
destroys skin cells and breaks down collagen and elastin, which are fibrous proteins
that lend strength and elasticity to your skin, giving it its youthful appearance.
