Eco website Treehugger has published a list of environmentally and wallet-friendly ways to improve the look of your skin.
1. Coffee: Even though drinking coffee is unlikely to do your skin any good, caffeine is the next big thing in beauty products, and Treehugger has the low-down on how to benefit from it DIY-style: a facial exfoliant made from coffee grounds.
2. Cleanliness: Washing out your makeup brushes is an inexpensive way to avoid bacteria that clog up pores.
3. Peeling: In the most literal meaning of the word, try fruit and vegetable peels to achieve different beneficial effects, such as plumper or brighter skin.
4. DIY facial: Use water steam to open pores, improve circulation and avoid acne.
5. Cold showers: Or at least lukewarm ones help to keep you moisturized since overly hot water removes all fatty substances off your skin and dries it out.
6. Work out: Sport does not only tone muscles, it also nurtures skin cells and whisks away toxins.
7. Healthy food: Sugar and highly refined carbohydrates aid zit formation and skin ageing.
8. Drink Water: Six to eight glasses a day should be sufficient to flush out toxins and renew cells.
