You can always test and experiment with divergent recipes to find the perfect regimen for you.
Determining Your Skin Concerns
First of all, it is essential to decide your skin type. Generally, the skin is an oily, dry, combination, or normal.
You should always check if your skin is sensitive to harsher ingredients. If you find that your skin becomes red, irritated, or acne-prone when exposed to sun, some cosmetic products, or maybe perfume, then it means that you have sensitive skin.
You should then determine the target concerns for your skin. It can also include wrinkles, acne, dull skin, or dark spots.
It is essential to decide how much time as well as effort you are willing to spend on your skincare. If you are thinking of the full skincare regimen, then it will involve exfoliator, cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and spot treatments, but there is no necessity to use all five of these.

Designing Your Skin Care Regimen
The next step is to pick the ingredients that you are willing to use. Have a look at the list of moisturizing ingredients found at-home:
Dry skin: coconut oil, avocado, almond oil, olive oil, cream, honey, aloe vera.
Oily skin: lemon juice diluted with water, shredded cucumber, egg white, shredded apples, tomatoes, apple cider vinegar.
Combination skin: yogurt, honey, milk, avocado, shredded apple, shredded cucumber.
Normal skin: yogurt, honey, almond oil, green tea.
You can also use these ingredients to prepare home-made scrubs to exfoliate. Scrubs are very helpful in sloughing off the dead, dull skin cells and will also lock the moisture into the remaining skin. Scrubs can be made using the exfoliants mentioned below:
- Sugar, brown or white
- Oatmeal or dried oats
- Fresh strawberries
If your main concern is acne, you can always pick the right ingredients to treat it. Spot or leave-on treatments can be used to treat acne so that it clears the skin and at the same time does not irritate the skin.
You can apply the below ingredients easily with Q-tips or cotton balls to help reduce acne:
– 3 drops of tea tree oil diluted to 5-15% to your problem area
– 6 drops of jojoba oil also help keep the skin moisturized and prevent the growth of acne.
– 3 drops of lemon juice to the problematic skin area will work great. The reason is bacteria which causes acne is killed with the acidity of lemon juice.
Moisturiser is the most important part of your skincare regime and should be carefully picked. It can be oil-based, aloe vera gel, or any other moisturizing lotion which gives a good result for your skin type.
There are a lot of dermatologists who recommend oil-based moisturizers as they are hygroscopic and attract/hold water, which would start hydrating your skin. You can also buy an organic or an all-natural moisturizer.
Face masks are another way to add moisture and making the skin firm. They also help to hydrate your skin.
Let’s look at some examples of masks which can be made at home:
- 1 egg white and 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 ripe avocado and 2 tablespoons yogurt
- ½ tsp Multani mitti (Fuller’s earth clay), ½ tsp besan (gram flour), ½ tsp coffee powder, rose water or plain water
Beginning Your Regimen
Once you have fixed ingredients for your natural skincare routine suitable to your skin type, you can start using them to make skin masks, scrubs as well as moisturizers.
You must introduce any new skincare regimen with caution. Try any new regimen once a week, then move to twice and then thrice only when you find that it is working for your skin. Notice what kind of regime would balance your daily skincare routine.
Moisturizing your face after every wash is important. Warm water is recommended on dry or sensitive skin
You should always use light and gentle motion on your face while cleansing. This will help prevent wrinkles and at the same time, your skin will not be irritated.
Moisturizing skin before going to bed will help your skin absorb it. Oily skin types can avoid this routine.
Simple steps can help you go a long way as far as your daily skincare routine is concerned. So follow them and add that natural glow to your face.
