The best products you can find on the market today contain organic ingredients that make them much more potent. PureLx uses a great number of those ingredients in order to create creams and serums that are truly efficient and perfectly safe for your skin.

Cosmetic beauty products are essential if you want to look your best at all times. However, boosting your beauty routine with an occasional “natural” day will be a great help as well. The best thing is that you won’t even need to spend any extra cash to indulge in some pleasant spa procedures as you have all the necessary ingredients in your pantry.

The best natural skin care products to use on a day like this are:

  • Avocado – for hair and face masks.
    High content of vitamins E and C make avocado one of the best cosmetic foods in existence. In fact, even eating it on a regular basis is good for your looks. When you mix some avocado and an egg yolk in a blender, you get a great nutritious hair mask that will make your locks shiny and string. To make an outstanding hydrating face mask, mix a bit of mashed avocado with a teaspoon of yoghurt and lemon juice (squeezed from 1 half of a lemon).
  • Apple cider vinegar – as a tonic.
    A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of warm water is an excellent digestive aid. You should definitely try it if you suffer from an occasional bout of nausea and indigestion. If you use it as a tonic, you are sure to be surprised with how much more radiant your skin will become in a few short days. Apple cider vinegar has potent healing qualities and can help remove any minor inflammations quickly and without scarring. If it’s not only your face that suffers from a skin condition of some sort, add a cup of vinegar to your bath water. However, remember not to linger in the water when you take this special bath.
  • Oats – as a scrub.
    If there is one product perfect to use as exfoliator in your kitchen, it’s oats. Blend half a cup of oats with some honey and you get a scrub that will gently peel off the dead skin cells and provide your skin with nourishment at the same time. If you are allergic to honey, replace it with egg whites.
  • Brown sugar – for feet.
    Don’t have any brown sugar at home? You definitely need to get some as this type of sweetener is much healthier than its white counterpart. If you cannot remove it from your diet altogether, you should at least use the safest kind of sugar. In addition to being more delicious and less harmful to your overall health, it’s also perfect for making scrubs. Mix a handful of brown sugar with a few drops of peppermint oil, and some olive, coconut, or sweet almond oil. This will give you a great foot scrub, which can provide soothing and cooling effects.
  • Tomatoes – for blemishes.
    The whitening effect of tomatoes is widely underappreciated. However, you can witness it for yourself if you take a half of a tomato and mix it with a half of an avocado in a blender. Add some powdered milk to thicken the substance into a proper face mask you should use once a week to remove blemishes and soothe acne-prone skin.
