DIY Natural Skincare Routine | Oily & Dry Skin


Taking care of our skin is definitely not
an easy task. And with the increasing pollution and chemicals
in skincare products these days, are you giving your skin the right ingredients? Hi, I am ayesha, and I’m saachi and we’re
going to show you how to create an all natural skincare routine. These recipes can be used for oily skin and dry skin and you can make them at home so that you have the option to keep your skin chemical free! CTM is an ideal skincare routine which includes
cleansing, toning and moisturising daily for healthy looking skin and slowing down the
signs of aging. Following this routine every day in the morning
and at night removes dirt, impurities and pollution from your skin. It also balances the pH
level, tightens pores and nourishes your skin. Let’s begin with grandma’s favourite ingredient,
multani mitti and some gram flour. Take a bowl and mix both ingredients in equal
proportions using a dry spoon, and you’re good to go. Take some of the powder in your hand, and
massage on your damp face for a minute and wash it off. Multani mitti removes excess oil from your
face and gram flour acts as a natural exfoliator, keeping oil at bay and giving you smooth skin. Dry skin needs a very gentle and nourishing
cleanser as it is delicate. Mix some honey with a few drops of milk and
combine the two ingredients. Massage your face with it for 30-50 seconds
and then wash your face. The lactic acid present in milk will cleanse
your pores deeply, while honey will nourish and moisturise your dry, irritated skin. We all know that green tea is a hero for anyone with oily skin and it’s going to be our key ingredient here. Take brewed green tea and add a few drops
of tea tree oil. Store the mixture in a spray bottle and your
toner is ready to use. Spray it on a cotton pad and dab it all over
your face after cleansing. Green tea acts as an antioxidant, giving you
healthy looking skin while tea tree oil fights acne. The key ingredient for making our toner is
a gorgeous flower, “chamomile”, known for its calming and soothing properties. Mix some rose water with add 10-12 drops of
chamomile essential oil and thats it. Pour it into a spray bottle and apply it with
a cotton pad focusing on the dry areas of your face. Rose water will balance the pH level of your
skin and chamomile will soothe and nourish it This lightweight moisturiser will hydrate your skin without making it greasy. To make this moisturiser, mix a spoonful of
aloe vera gel with some rose water it. Apply it twice a day after using your toner
and massage your face with it for 5 minutes to improve blood circulation as well. Aloe vera will hydrate your oily skin, whereas
rose will soothe your skin and prevent excessive oil production. Did you know that you can make your skin better
by using shea butter? Combine 1 spoon of shea butter with 8 drops
of jojoba oil to form your moisturiser. Use it in the morning after your toner and
at night before going to bed. Shea butter is a strong moisturiser and jojoba
oil soothes inflamed and irritated skin. Now you know how simple and easy skincare
can be when you get to create it and use it for yourself. Until next time, stay tuned, stay GLAMRS.
