10 Natural Home Remedies For A Soft Face
Soft skin is generally regarded as healthy and beautiful skin, so it’s no wonder that many women strive to have their faces looking and feeling as soft as possibly. Luckily it’s not hard, time-consuming, or expensive to make your skin look softer. Follow these simple natural home remedies to make your skin look healthier and feel softer.
#1. Hair Styles
Certain hairstyles can help you to keep oil off of your skin; when your skin is oily it’s not exactly soft. Plus, with certain hairstyles using other soft-skin natural remedies will be easier to do. Some hairstyles that are bad for people with oily skin or hair are hairstyles with bangs/fringe and any other hairstyle that keeps hair on or very near to your face. On the other hand, keeping your hair up with hair bands and clips keeps the oil from your hair from getting on your face. Less oil on your face means having an easier time keeping your face soft.
#2. Wash Your Face
An important natural remedy to keep your face soft is to keep your face clean. The best way to do this is to first scrub your face with warm soapy water. The best kind of soap to use is antibacterial and/or moisturizing hand or body soap. Scrub your face so that you get plenty of bubbles on it. Once this happens, rinse off your face with cold water. The warm water will help to clean out your pores and get your face generally clean, and the cold water can help your face from drying out.
#3. Don’t Touch!
Once your face is clean for the day, do your best not to touch it. Your hands produce oil constantly, and when you touch your face it will make it oily as well. Unless you have just washed your hands with antibacterial soap and warm water, you should refrain from touching your face as best as you can.
#4. Brown Sugar & Olive Oil
One kind of facial scrub that you can use to make your face softer is a brown sugar and olive oil mix. Olive oil in its own can have great moisturizing effects on your skin, and the brown sugar makes a great scrubbing agent that it strong enough to get rid of dead skin, but gentle enough to still keep your skin soft. Mix a tablespoon of each ingredient and scrub your face with it for a few minutes. When you are done, rinse off your face with cool water. For best results, do this once a week.
#5. Treating Acne
If you want your face to be soft and clear, then part of that means that you should try to get rid of your acne. Not touching your face, keeping your hair up, and washing your face on a daily basis is already a great start to getting rid of acne. Another natural home remedy to cure acne is to put a dab of honey on your pimples and let it sit for ten minutes before rinsing it off with cool water.
#6. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is great for moisturizing your skin and making it softer. Warm up some coconut oil and rub it onto your face. Keep it on your face for at least ten minutes before rinsing it off with cool water. This should keep your face well nourished and softer throughout the day. If you like, you can even do this every day.
#7. Cocoa Butter
Cocoa butter is much thicker than coconut oil. But this natural remedy can also be used to moisturize your skin and make it softer. Get a small amount of cocoa butter and spread it out on your skin. Keep this on your face for at least fifteen minutes, then like the coconut oil, rinse off your face with cool water. Do this every couple of days to get the best results.
#8. Harsh Substances to Avoid
Some things can make your skin dry out, wrinkle, and just generally look bad. Some substances to avoid are tobacco products, which can wrinkle and dry out your skin; caffeinated beverages, which can dry out your skin; and alcoholic drinks, which can stretch out your skin in unflattering ways. Smoking is bad for your skin, and the rest of your body all the time. If you currently smoke, try to quit as soon as possible. Caffeine and alcohol can be okay in moderation, just don’t binge on either.
Eating nuts is a great way to keep your skin looking healthy and soft. Nuts contain a healthy type of fatty acid which is very good for your skin, along with other bodily functions. Try to get in a handful of nuts every once in a while to keep your skin looking great.
#10. Stay Hydrated
It’s also important to drink enough water if you want your skin to be healthy. When you don’t drink enough water your skin can look dull and anything but the full and soft look that you are aiming for. A healthy person should drink at least six glasses a day, and even more if they live in a hot climate or exercise regularly. Drink enough water to hydrate your body for whatever situation you’re in.
Hopefully these tips can help you to get the soft skin that you’re aiming for.
