Beauty Tip 💦

 

Washing your face in water with pH of 5.5 is said to be a new trend but for Kangen water users it is old news but great news. Instead of buying expensive molecular water that in some cases are around $70 a bottle, this pH 5.5  level is just one of the pH levels of water  the Kangen water machine can produce.

‘Dermatologists say that water that is slightly acidic pH of 5.5  is  the same pH of our skin . When you use tap water it is usually about a pH of 7 which can disrupt the skins outermost layer leading to dryness and irritation. The pH level of 5.5 helps break up dirt and oil in clogged pores.’

Eliminate Age Spots the Natural Way

safe_image.php
Also known as sun spots, age spots, liver spots, or brown spots, dark age spots are caused when too much melanin/ skin pigment develops in certain regions. The spots typically appear on the face, neck, chest, back, hands, and shoulders. Research reveals that they’re caused by the sun’s UV rays, vitamin deficiency, aging, stress, genetics, and weak liver functioning. The following are natural ways of getting rid of these spots:

1. Lemon Juice

Lemon juice has acidic properties that help to remove the excess melanin. Applying fresh lemon juice on the affected regions two times a day for at least two months clears the spots. Those with sensitive skin ought to dilute the fresh fruit juice by adding honey, fresh water, or rose water.

2. Apple Cider Vinegar

Due to its strong bleaching action, it’s recommended to mix apple cider vinegar with honey, orange juice, or water. The mixture should be applied twice every day and then washed off with warm water after it has dried.

3. Buttermilk

The main ingredient in buttermilk is lactic acid that has exfoliating properties. It gets rid of the dark spots without making the skin dry. Apply the remedy using a cotton ball, leave it for several minutes to dry, and then rinse with clean water. Repeat procedure two times a day.

4. Castor Oil

Take a cotton ball, apply the oil on the affected areas and give it five minutes before you rinse it off with clean water. The natural oil also moisturizes the skin thus minimizing any dryness.

5. Almond Oil

Applying almond oil on the spots in the morning and before going to bed will get rid of the dark spots. For better results, the oil can be mixed with olive oil or castor oil. Expect visible results in a couple of weeks.

6. Sandalwood

Sandalwood has strong anti-aging properties and is useful for removing age or dark spots. Sandalwood powder should be mixed with one teaspoon juice, one teaspoon glycerin, and two teaspoons rose water. You can also include two capsules of vitamin E or two teaspoons of orange juice.

7. Aloe Vera

Apart from eliminating the dark spots, Aloe Vera also helps in skin regeneration. Apply fresh pieces of the plant on the affected region and leave for at least 30 minutes. This process should be done in the morning and late at night using either the gel or juice forms. Expect results in a month.

There are other useful natural home remedies like tomato juice, onion juice, papaya, sugar cubes, and coconut oil.

Although they are entirely harmless, dark or brown spots make people quite uncomfortable and embarrassed about their skin. The above methods can primarily help such people to enjoy radiant skin by clearing the spots in the affected regions. The best thing about the natural remedies for treating dark age spots is that they have no side effects.
