Home Made Skin Care Treatment For SENSITIVE Skin...

I have been getting mails asking if all the home made skin care recipes I put up are suitable for extra SENSITIVE skin. To answer this question, I hope this post helps.

If you have sensitive skin, that can get irritated easily, then LESS IS MORE. Instead of using skin care products with a long list of ingredients that you cannot pronounce, choose products with few ingredients, which you have ample knowledge of. Or better still, try making some treatments for yourself.

These home made skin treatments are gentle enough for your sensitive skin, and also effective enough to make your skin glow:


Honey + yogurt skin soother 
Why it worksHoney is a great moisturizer, hydrating the skin without leaving behind a greasy film. It’s also naturally antiseptic, which makes it effective at healing skin and preventing infection. Yogurt contains lactic acid to exfoliate the skin and helps to balance your skin’s pH level.
How-toBlend together one quarter cup whole fat yogurt with one quarter cup of honey. Organic honey has the greatest benefits for your skin. Wash your face, then spread on the mixture and leave on for five minutes, then rinse off using warm water.  

Cucumber + aloe mask 
Why it works: Aloe and cucumber are widely known as healing and soothing ingredients, and when you put them together, they’re a winning combo! This is a great mask to use if your skin looks red and agitated, and can also calm skin during acne breakouts. It’ll cool down irritation and leave your skin glowing.

How-toCombine one large chopped aloe leaf or one cup of aloe juice with one cup chopped cucumber. Mix in the blender until smooth, lather on your face and leave on for 15-20 minutes. 





TIP: Place cucumber slices on your eyes to reduce puffiness.


Oatmeal + Yoghurt + Honey

Why it works“Oatmeal contains beta-glucans, which are very skin-soothing, according to New York dermatologist Jeannette Graf. It also helps to tighten skin, which makes it a great anti-aging treatment. The yogurt gently exfoliates, and the honey softens and soothes.
How-to: Mix one tablespoon raw, rolled oats (avoid instant oatmeal), three tablespoons plain yogurt and one tablespoon honey. Use a blender to mix the ingredients until smooth, and apply a thin layer to your face. Leave on five minutes, then rinse.


Milk bath
Why it worksTurns out Cleopatra was right – milk is one of the simplest and most readily available beauty treatments for softening and hydrating dry skin. Most stores carry pre-made milk bath treatments, but it takes no time at all to create your own.

How-toSimply add some milk and a couple drops of olive oil to a lukewarm bath (not too hot, which will irritate sensitive skin). Use Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which “contains the most skin-protecting antioxidants.” Soak for 10-15 minutes.


"Pure Milk Bath"

    Brown sugar + Milk scrub 
    Why it worksWhile both brown and white sugars make great exfoliators, brown sugar is smoother and gentler, making it better for sensitive skin. When combined with milk, it adds a healthy dose of hydration.
    How-to: Add just enough milk to the brown sugar to make a paste, and scrub away! This is a great way to get your entire body glowing. You can use the mixture on your face too, but be gentle and don’t scrub too vigorously.


    Making Spa Treatments at home is a perfect way to spend an afternoon pampering your skin without spending a lot of money. By choosing recipes with just a few ingredients, you’ll have the added benefit of knowing exactly what's in your skincare. Give your SENSITIVE skin the care it deserves by whipping up one of these homemade remedies, and you’ll be rewarded with calmer, happier, glowing skin.
