There is a very good saying, that states “our skin above 30 is what we are worth having”. That is, depending on what you did with your skin, how much care you have taken of it, then reaching the age of 30, you will get the expected results. Those who have experimented with their poor skin since early ages will be in need of a thorough care now.

You can soon get rid of the problem with an appropriate mask for oily skin. Or if your skin is dry and you get nervous every time you apply foundation on the unsmooth skin, we have what to suggest you.
No one will deny that in ancient times, before the existence of any cosmetics we are now used to, there were so many homemade remedies used by women for skin care. They were both natural and organic. So let’s have a look at a series of harmless natural beauty remedies that will help you look perfect without any harm to your skin.
Taking Care of Our Hands
Experts say that the skin on our hands is the first signal that tells us about a woman’s age. That is because the skin is very sensitive and when not taken care thoroughly, the skin starts to get harsher and soon wrinkles appear on them. Especially in winter, our hands demand greatest care. If your gloves or the creams have not been of much use to you and your hands seem to be damaged, here is a perfect recipe to bring back life to your hands.
Take a small amount of ground almonds; add a teaspoon of honey, sunflower oil and a little lemon juice. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together, get a thick paste. Then apply some part of the mixture on your hands. Keep it on for a couple minutes and wash. Dead skin of your hands will be taken away; your hands will get moisture, and will look soft and smooth like a silk.
Or, you can use any other ingredient you have at home. For instance, start massaging your hands with half a lemon, which will soften the skin, as well as will help you get rid of unpleasant stains and smells. It also strengthens nails. You can also use a natural paste featuring cucumber juice and a few drops of glycerin.
Another homemade beauty recipe is to take the same amounts of lime juice and tomato juice and blend it with a few drops of glycerin. Apply the paste on your hands and you will soon feel that your skin is as smooth as the newly born baby skin is.
There are still so many homemade recipes to make your skin soft. Simply choose whichever is convenient to you, or the smell of which is pleasant to you.

Avocado oil’s fatty acids help to balance skin’s moisture levels, while vitamins A, C, and E contained ensure that no further skin damage is caused. What you have to do is combining equal parts of avocado oil and evening-primrose oil in a bottle and shake to blend. With a little amount of the mixture message your skin, and then cover your face with a warm washcloth, leaving ot on for about a minute so that the oils will thoroughly sink in.
Oily skin is shiny skin, from the forehead, down the nose to the chin. Of course women hate this problem, but while you may find this annoying, there is an advantage of this skin type: it ages better than dry skin. That’s something to be happy for.
For those with oily skin, the use of lemon and eggs will be of much help. Mix lemon with grapes and egg white. Apply the homemade facial and leave it on your skin for about 15-20 minutes. Afterwards rinse it off with lukewarm water. Lemon is known to be a great natural cleanser, while egg whites will ensure that your facial skin is tighter. As for the grapes, they are added for softening your skin.
Oatmeal also plays a great role in this respect. It contains beta glycan, which creates a moisture-retaining film on the skin. Create your facial by mixing egg white with oatmeal. Apply it on your oily skin and then wash it off with lukewarm water after 20 minutes. After this, your skin will become fresh.
