7 Ingredients That Make Perfect DIY Spa Facials
At Beaute Therapies, we specialize in spa facials in West Palm Beach, FL, but if you can’t find the time to make it to us, the following ingredients are must-haves for your DIY spa day. Best of all, you can find all of the ingredients right in your kitchen. It may not be a professional treatment, but homemade facial masks will pamper you and nourish your skin. Make sure to use organic ingredients for a more effective treatment.
You can do a lot more than throw a banana into your smoothie for a post-workout snack. Because bananas are rich in skin-nourishing vitamins, they are the perfect ingredient for a facial mask. The following are ways that banana facials can improve the look and feel of your skin.
- Vitamin A can reduce blemishes and hyperpigmentation
- Vitamin B reduces dryness
- Vitamin E minimizes wrinkles
As most people know, these bright yellow fruits are also high in potassium, which can help hydrate and moisturize your skin for a smooth, supple feel.
Enjoyed in the morning as a healthy, filling breakfast, oatmeal has many skin-nourishing benefits. Many beauty gurus try incorporating this ingredient into their skincare routine in any way possible. Because it is a large grain, it can be used as an exfoliator to gently remove dead skin cells. As an exfoliant, it will rid your skin of dirt and oil and remove the old layer on top to reveal the youthful skin underneath. When you can’t visit Beaute Therapies for our Silk Peel Dermal Infusion (wet microdermabrasion with customized infusions that exfoliates the skin), this oatmeal is a good contender.
This well-known condiment that pairs well with just about any sandwich also has surprising benefits for your skin. Mustard seeds contain sulfur, which can help get rid of bacteria. In turn, this will reduce acne, inflammation, and certain skin sensitivities. We recommend testing it out on a small patch of skin before applying it to your entire face.
These bright yellow fruits are rich in hydroxy acids. If you have heard this term used before or heard of AHAs and BHAs, then you know lemons are a powerful ingredient in removing dead skin cells and clearing the skin of blackheads, acne, discoloration, and other common skin conditions. Lemon goes well mixed with skin nourishing oils such as extra virgin olive oil and sweet almond oil.
Another surprising ingredient on this list is yeast, which is rich in vitamin B, making it perfect for combatting acne and treating oily skin, making it perfect for teens. If you have a small packet of yeast in your kitchen, mix this with lemon juice to form a thick paste, which you then apply to your face for 10 minutes.
Most people know this superfood contains many vitamins and nutrients that will do wonders for your skin. It’s no wonder companies advertise the use of avocado in their beauty products. Rather than purchasing a product at your local drug store, make your own face mask for a more affordable and natural alternative.
For softer, more youthful-looking skin, it’s time to reap the benefits of pumpkin. This brightly colored fruit is loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals that treat several conditions. For example, pumpkin can:
- Minimize wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduce dark sports
- Exfoliate dead skin cells
- Remove skin blemishes
Is it any surprise that we utilize the nourishing benefits of pumpkin in our Pumpkin Peel Facial? Combined with pumpkin pulp and other healthy ingredients like glycolic and salicylic acid, this facial will intensively rejuvenate your skin and combat aging and acne.
When you can’t make an appointment at our medical spa in West Palm Beach, FL, incorporate any of these delicious, skin-nourishing ingredients into your skincare routine. You will be amazed by the difference.
