Anti-aging: beauty products and natural tips to make yourself beautiful

To delay them, adopt the right actions and the right anti-aging beauty products, in order to make yourself beautiful and regain the skin of your 20 years!

Beauty products for hydrated skin

To protect your skin and slow down its aging, the first thing to do is to hydrate it well. You can thus opt for moisturizing day and night creams, adapted to your skin type. In particular, favor beauty products made from thermal spring water: it is natural, softening, moisturizing and the minerals it contains keep the skin healthy!

Tips in +

Take care of your face and body. Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week to get rid of dead skin and make your skin better absorb the moisturizing beauty products you apply to it.

Natural masks to nourish your skin

In addition to moisturizers, use natural, homemade masks to enhance the action of the creams. For example, to moisturize your skin as much as possible, mix half a finely chopped cucumber with plain yogurt and apply it to your face. Leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing off with clean water. For very dry skin, concoct your own nourishing mask: crush half an avocado in a bowl and add two teaspoons of lemon juice and two teaspoons of honey. Your skin will be revitalized and glowing!

To prevent your skin from drying out further, avoid exposure to the sun! This accelerates the aging of the skin. If you have no choice, consider total screen sunscreen!

Be beautiful by eating a balanced diet

To have beautiful skin, you have to adopt the right gestures both inside and out! In addition to moisturizing creams and beauty products, it is ideal to favor certain foods with a composition that is beneficial for the skin:

- Antioxidants: they help your skin to regenerate. The best known are zinc, vitamins A, C and E as well as polyphenols. You will find it in large quantities in green tea, cocoa or tomatoes as well as in food supplements based on essential oils (soya, evening primrose, ginseng or red vine).

- Omega 3 (rapeseed oil, nuts, fish) and carotenes (carrots, apricots) are also important.

Drink plenty to flush out toxins! 1.5 to 2 liters of water per day will help make your skin beautiful and radiant ... Finally, avoid alcohol, sugar and nicotine, which in turn accentuate skin aging!

December 14, 2020 Posted by Oldies Remedies , , , , No comments

What do you mean, sugar wouldn't be good for our beauty? 

It is true that a priori, it is not our best friend to keep the figure. But to keep beautiful skin, have nice makeup, give hair volume ... Ah, we feel that you are interested! We tell you all about the benefits of sugar and we share 3 beauty recipes. Yum !

Sugar beauty recipe n ° 1: volume spray for hair

We know the salt-based spray to give a wavy effect to your hair. He has a cousin! A sugar-based hair spray that will give them texture but also shine. It will even have a slightly fixing result, all without sticking or drying out the lengths. On the contrary ! Because this is another secret and benefit of sugar: a hydrating virtue. Wow!

Our instructions for a homemade sugar spray:

  • Heat 300 ml of water.
  • Immerse 2 pieces of sugar (white or cane, the latter would have a more pleasant scent).
  • Melt them in water.
  • Pour into a spray bottle.
  • Let cool. Your spray ... is ready! You can keep it for about 3 weeks.


  • Apply it to dry hair.
  • Spray on the lengths and ends but avoid the roots: it could be a little too sticky.
  • Do Your Hair ! If you do a brushing, it will make your hair really shiny!

 The additional tip:

Sugar in Beauty is best known for scrub recipes. Let your scalp benefit! Just add 1c. to your shampoo dose when washing your hair. Massage your skull to get rid of dead cells or impurities and rinse. Ideal for beautiful long hair!

Sugar Beauty Tip # 2: A Lipstick That Holds Better

A little coffee, a little kiss ... Do you find that your lipstick holds better on the cup or on the cheek than on your lips? Sugar might help you keep it longer.

 Our instructions for fixing your lipstick with sugar:

  • Apply your rouge according to the shape of your lips.
  • Gently place a little sugar on top.
  • Wait a few minutes.
  • Remove the excess with a cotton ball or tissue.

 The additional tip:

The lips also have their sugar-based scrub! Nothing like it to make them smooth and allow makeup to better withstand the tests of the day. A simple recipe: mix sugar and honey in equal parts, place this paste on your lips in small circular movements. Rinse and smile!

  Sugar treatment recipe n ° 3: an anti-aging scrub

Sugar is therefore one of the star natural ingredients in homemade scrubs. It is especially its grain effect that is acclaimed. But did you know that by melting, sugar can also have a perfect "chemical" action for sensitive skin? This will release its glycolic acid which will nibble the impurities in ultra-softness: we let it do and we rub less. We have found a homemade recipe that combines these two benefits for a bluffing anti-aging result!

Our instructions for a double face scrub:

  • In a bowl, mix 1 tsp. of sugar and 1 tsp. of argan oil.
  • Moisten your face with warm (but not hot!) Water, using a damp towel.
  • Apply the sugar treatment in very gentle circular movements: you benefit from a "mechanical exfoliation", the grain one!
  • Take the time: at least 2 min to melt the sugar at the same time.
  • Leave on for another 2 minutes to benefit from the "chemical scrub".
  • Rinse off with lukewarm water.

 The additional tip:

Replace the argan oil with lemon juice in equal parts with the sugar and leave for 5 min: presto! A brightening scrub that should fade recent brown spots!

Last thing before savoring these recipes: know that white sugar is finer (therefore perfect for the face) and that brown sugar is thicker (therefore perfect for the body)! Are these recipes making you all sugar?
