There are plenty of foods, herbs and oils which can help us improve the look of the skin and make it look more hydrated and moisturized.

Natural skin care

People have been using natural skin remedies for quite a long period of time now. These remedies were used in both treatment of certain skin problems and the slowing down of the aging process. A lot of people are now aware that these skin products can be found in almost every kitchen and supermarket. A person's skin is like a mirror of his or her inner state. A healthy and beautiful skin says a lot about a person's physical and emotional state but so does a pale and dry skin. The skin is the largest organ on a person's body and it is approximately 16% of his or her total body weight. In order to have a healthier skin a person just needs to intake the freshest foods and use the ingredients which are the most natural. It is best if a person prepares his or her own skin products from scratch. This way a person will avoid all the bad toxic chemicals. The usage of face masks, exfoliants, body polishes and lotions will do wonders for a person's skin and spirits.

Pumpkin face mask

A lot of people are now aware that pumpkin seeds have plenty of beauty boosting properties. Pumpkin seeds are considered to be a symbol of health, rebirth and fruitfulness in China. These seeds have an abundance of vitamins, minerals, fiber and healthy fats. A person who uses pumpkin seeds will have a soft and elastic skin because of the omega-3 and omega-6 fats that these seeds are full of. These seeds also prevent dehydration.

The ingredients needed for the making of a pumpkin face mask are one medium sized pumpkin, four pineapple chunks, one table spoon of nicely ground oats and almonds, one tablespoon of milk and honey, two drops of rose geranium essential oil and one drop of rose essential oil.

A person will need to slice the pumpkin into six to eight pieces and get rid of the skin. Next, he or she will place them in a microwave safe dish with a quarter of a cup of water. This should be microwaved for 2 minutes and then allowed to cool. After that, a person should remove the peel. When a person has done that, he or she should put the pumpkin flesh, seeds and strings along with the pineapple chunks into a food processor and blend it until it becomes smooth. Then oats, almonds, milk, honey and essential oils should be added to the mixture and blended shortly. This is then supposed to be applied to the face and neck and then washed after 20 minutes with warm water.
