Anti-oxidants are free radical scavengers that neutralize damaging atoms, molecules and ions that cause aging.
Fruits and vegetables are high in anti-oxidants especially those that contain Vitamin A, C E K and Niacin.
These natural sources of anti-oxidants offer rich benefits to your skin especially when combined with oils and bases that help to deliver their nourishing benefits deep into your skin layers.
Some antioxidant ingredients you can use in skin care recipes include:
- Almond Meal
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Apricots Raw
- Argan Oil
- Carrot Seed
- Elder Flower
- Kiwi Fruit
- Rosehip Oil
- Safflower oil
- Sunflower Meal
- Sunflower Oil
Some of these ingredients also offer other anti-aging, rejuvenating and many other benefits for your skin especially when combined in specific combinations or quantities that activate the nutrients and properties you want to absorb into your skin.
You can make many homemade skincare recipes in minutes at home using the oils listed above along with essential oils that are great as serums or blends that target your unique skin requirements.
Avocado face masks and Honey face masks seem to be some of the most well known and popular recipes but here are many many more that you can make that have very potent and powerful benefits for your skin.
Anti-oxidant masks and treatment ingredients:
Using oils like Macadamia, Sweet almond or Coconut oils you can make nourishing moisturizing creams with just two other ingredients. You can then add essential oils for:
- Red veins
- Dry skin
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Itchy skin
- Age spots
- Dark circles
- Puffy eyes
And much more…
You might be wondering at this point if these recipes will really work or if they require a whole bunch of time and difficult to source ingredients.
The answer is that many everyday fruits, veggies, nuts and oils contain “active ingredients” like Coq 10, Papain, Retinol, Peptides, AHA’s Anti-oxidants…the list goes on.
Because these ingredients are fresh and in their concentrated form they can deliver their nutriceutical benefits directly into your skin.
You can make the perfect recipe for your skin on any day of the year whether its summer or winter, whether you have acne or age spots or any other skin issue you want to deal with.
Start with a basic moisturizing cream made of base oils and beeswax or avocado/honey masks and add other “active ingredients” or essential oils to suit your own skin requirements.
Whatever your time or monetary budget, you can maintain beautiful healthy skin at home.
