Pampering doesn’t have to be a rigorous routine or involve an expensive trip to the spa. Reduce wrinkles at home and improve your complexion with a few luxurious, pamper day at home tricks
Ideas for a Pamper Day At Home
These healthy skincare habits will not transform skin overnight, but they can encourage smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin over time.
Cocoa and Almond at Home Facial to Soften
Homemade facials are fun, easy, and great for your skin. Try this face mask recipe, which combines antioxidant-rich cocoa powder to help fight free radicals, with the moisturizing and repairing benefits of sweet almond oil, a great source of fatty acids and vitamin E for aging skin. With lactic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid, yogurt is great for gently exfoliating skin.
Start with unprocessed cocoa powder. According to the USDA, the more cocoa is processed, the fewer antioxidants that are available. Mix one tablespoon of the powder with one tablespoon of plain yogurt and one teaspoon of sweet almond oil. Spread evenly over a clean face. Rinse after 15 minutes, pat dry, and finish with your facial moisturizer.
Ideas for a Pamper Day At Home? A Fresh Fruit Smoothie to Protect
Another fun and delicious way to reduce wrinkles at home is to make a smoothie with plenty of fresh fruit. Berries, papayas, melons, and citrus are packed with protective antioxidants, including vitamin C and vitamin A. They are also a great source of fiber. Instead of worrying about getting several servings of fresh fruit a day, throw strawberries, bananas, and sliced peaches in a blender. Liquify and enjoy, knowing that you are giving your body a rich dose of antioxidants to stop free radicals from harming cells and leading to the visible signs of aging. Drinking a smoothie a day is a great way to nourish your skin.
Aromatherapy Bath to Calm
Treat yourself to a relaxing bath or anything else that helps to reduce stress, such as a yoga class or a good night’s rest. High levels of the stress-related hormone, cortisol, can contribute to the breakdown of collagen. Collagen is the skin protein that is responsible for structural integrity. Healthy collagen production translates into soft, supple skin and is one of the secrets to lovely skin later in life.
It’s not a pamper day without a luxury bath.
To make skin and mind soothing aromatherapy bath, add one cup of Epsom salts and ten drops of lavender, neroli, or rose essential oil to the bathwater. Soak, relax, and enjoy. Getting rid of wrinkles doesn’t have to take work. Treat yourself and pamper your skin. Make these enjoyable habits a regular part of your skincare routine to help keep skin healthy and to slow the breakdown of cells and the development of wrinkles.
So a pamper day full of treats to help you feel nourished.
