Do you know what effect cosmetics with grapes in the composition have on the skin? This so far undervalued plant in terms of cosmetics is back in favor. Grapes are a source of antioxidants and have a beneficial effect on the skin. Here’s how to prepare homemade cosmetics with grapes!
Grapes can be found in some wrinkle creams. However, they are hardly mentioned in cosmetics. And yet, grapes are a great source of antioxidants which slow down the aging process. The ingredients contained in them fight free radicals that affect the skin aging process.
Here are proven ways to make homemade cosmetics from grapes!
To make an effective moisturizing grape mask you will need only a few grapes. Washed grapes are mashed to a pulp. For this we can use a fork or a spoon. Spread the mask prepared this way on a clean face, neck and cleavage. After 15 minutes remove the pulp from the skin, preferably using a dry cotton ball. Finally, rinse the face with tonic or hydrolate.
To prepare this mask, apart from grape seed oil, we need egg yolk and homogenized cheese. One tablespoon of cream cheese is mixed with egg yolk and a tablespoon of grape seed oil is added. Leave the mixture on a cleansed face for 20 minutes. Then wash it off with lukewarm water.
Crush a few grapes to extract the pulp. Add to it a tablespoon of honey and potato flour. The whole will be completed by grape seed oil. Apply the mask on the previously prepared skin and wait 20 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Using it once a week will make your skin visibly firmer. In addition, the skin tone will also improve.
To make this natural peeling, you will need: half a cup of grape seed oil, whole grape seeds and half a cup of sugar. Crush the seeds in a mortar or pestle. It is important not to crush them too hard. Then mix them with sugar and oil. The scrub is ready to use right away. After massaging the scrub into the body, wash it off with lukewarm water.
Mix crushed grapes with two tablespoons of honey. Massage this scrub into your skin and wash it off with lukewarm water. This peeling moisturizes the skin, exfoliates dead epidermis and improves circulation.
To prepare a face scrub, you only need 10 grapes. Add olive or grape seed oil and a tablespoon of oatmeal. The grapes should be peeled and crushed. Then add the remaining ingredients and mix. The consistency of the scrub should not be too thick. Apply the finished scrub on your face and massage. At the end, wash it off with warm water.
Homemade tonic made of herbal ingredients? You are welcome. To make it you will need 2 tablespoons of sage, linden flower, St. John’s wort and horse chestnut. Pour boiling water over all the herbs (2 cups) and brew under a lid.
After it cools down, we add 2 glasses of white wine to the infusion and set the whole aside for 14 days, preferably in a darkened place. After two weeks, the tonic should be strained through gauze. And there you have it!
