Posted on April 09, 2021 by Melanie Brown


Your skin is the largest organ in the human body. It is subjected to all sorts of influences such as the weather and pollution.🌡🌬☁️🌞

You therefore have to do all that you can to protect it.⛑

There are a number of things that you can find in your home to help you look after your skin. They will hydrate and moisturize leaving your skin looking healthy and glowing. 🏥👩‍⚕️

Here are 3 simple hacks that you can try at home.🏡

1. Coconut Oil 🥥

This is used for cooking but makes an excellent moisturiser, especially if you suffer from dry skin. It is made up of fatty acids and natural fats. It is renowned for its antimicrobial properties. It can be used on the body by rubbing it into the desired area. It is a little heavy for the face.

2. Honey 🍯

This natural treasure is amazing for dry skin and assisting the healing process. It is known for helping if with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. You can apply a very thin layer to your face like a face mask for 20 minutes. The beauty of honey is that it can be combined to other natural ingredients to soothe and nourish the skin.

3. Aloe vera 🌿

I love this plant 🪴 It has amazing soothing qualities particularly if you have caught the sun 🌞, or have skin irritations such as eczema to acne. It has been recognised for improving the skin texture. Aloe vera can be taken as a supplement, used topically as a gel, or if you have a plant, you can carefully remove one of its leaves and scoop out the inner gel. You can apply a thin layer to your face leaving it on for 20 minutes. 💆‍♀️🧖🏾‍♀️
