Do you have a favorite natural skincare routine that you use to keep your skin glowing?

I recently interviewed  Julie Raines, an Esthetician and Facial Therapist, about beauty remedies for aging skin on my women’s holistic health talk radio “Feel and Look Fabulous with Irina.” If you would like to learn how and why natural regular skin care routine can benefit your skin aging.

One of the natural beauty remedies / anti-aging tips I talked about with Julie Raines follows.

Simple Cucumber and Yogurt Cleanser Anti-Aging Beauty Remedy and Recipe

  • 1 Pot of Organic Natural Yogurt (try Greek if you want a creamer blend)Simple Cucumber and Yogurt Cleanser Anti-Aging Beauty Remedy and Recipe
  • ½ Cucumber mashed in blender

Mix yogurt and cucumber in a bowl until well blended.

Damp skin with warm water and use a generous amount of the yogurt /cucumber mix and emulsify in your hands and massage using upwards strokes from the top of the bust to the top of your head. Massage until a sticky consistency then remove with a damp face cloth. Splash your face with plenty of water and pat dry.

This is wonderful to get pre teens in to a gentle skin care routine & they can experiment with additions of honey or oatmeal about 1 teaspoon of each. This is also fabulous on maturing skin as it will calm redness and the cucumber will freshen and stimulate. You can use slices of cucumber on the eyes and even use it as a quick toner for the skin in an emergency.
