Tired stressed out skin-A simple remedy

Tired, stressed-skin is quite a common and frequent problem. All you need to liven-up tired; sagging skin on your face and neck is fresh cucumber and tomato!

Wash and peel the cucumber. Cut thin and even slices. Put it in the freezer for about 7 to 10 minutes.

First, clean your face using a suitable cleanser, face wash or a mild soap and plain water, whichever you prefer. The idea is to make the skin on the face clean and free of dirt before the application of the slices.

Lie down, place the moist and chilled slices on your closed eyes, neck and all over your face and relax for about 10-15 minutes. The slices should overlap each other without allowing any skin to peep through.

You must be wondering how those thin cucumber slices are going to liven-up your tired skin. Its astringent juices will freshen skin’s texture and tighten open pores, thus uplifting the sagging skin. You have to see it to believe it!

If yours is an extra oily skin with pimples and blackheads sprinkled over it, use tomato slices instead of cucumber, or use both. Tomato is slightly acidic and is simply great for closing yawning pores- fast!

    Stay out of the midday sun as much as possible. the sun will age you. Do not tan or go to tanning beds whatever you do. Do not use a cleaner that will dry your skin, use a cleaner that moisturizes like Burt's Bees. Get an exfoliate. I sometimes scrub my face with a sea sponge. This will reduce fine lines and scrape away dead skin leaving your face looking naturally glowy.

    Cold, used tea bags (regular tea or green tea are best). Boil the kettle, stew the tea bag. Then run it under the cold tap and place it over your eyes for 10 minutes. The chemical tannin and the antioxidants in tea quickly replenish skin and make it look brighter.

    You can get incredible results massaging with essential oils. They feed and nourish skin with many beneficial health enhancing nutrients. Olive oil is excellent. Quickly revitalizes, makes skin softer, firmer and gives it a healthy glow . Will also rid it of many blemishes. For best and fastest results massage for a few minutes each day. You will find you do not need to exfoliate and will need very little other skin care. Oils are perfect natural moisturizers. You will need no other. Do not remove. Simply splash face with water and dab dry with tissues.

    A cultured milk mask is a simple and effective cure for tired skin.Just apply a bit of natural yogurt, buttermilk, sour cream, or kefir on your face avoiding areas around the eyes. Relax for 10-15 minutes and rinse your face with cool water.This mask softens, rejuvenates, and restores a natural pH balance of your skin, thus, protecting it from negative influences of winter air.

    soy protein is great for the skin. Creative ways to use edamame for skin health are easy to think of, if you have edamame and a blender. Go for it, and use natural and inexpensive skin treatments

    Your skin is amazing. It protects your body against injury and infections, helps maintain your body temperature, prevents dehydration and even acts as a storehouse for nutrients and water.Beautiful skin reflects our overall health and general well-being--and rightly so. The skin is the largest organ of the human body, renewing some of its cells every 24 hours.Proper skin care should start at an early age.

    To exfoliate dead skin cells rub a cut lemon dipped into a half-teaspoon of sugar over your face for a few minutes, or create a mild mixture by using lemon juice, sugar and a small amount of water. Do this every night to help remove accumulated dead skin cells and refresh your skin.
