Strong anti-aging properties, as well as the regeneration of the skin and the antioxidant effect – all this can be achieved with the bay leaf. Maybe someone refuses to use the spice in cooking because of the pungent odor, but refusing to use the product in home cosmetology is real nonsense. Masks and lotions on the basis of bay leaf are associated with expensive professional tools.
Regular use of the mask tightens pores and smooths the skin, tones it, regenerates and stimulates metabolic processes, disinfects and helps to combat various skin diseases. The benefits of bay leaf for skin face and neck are difficult to describe;
Grind 8g (0.28 oz) of the bay leaf into a bowl, pour half a cup of extra virgin olive oil and add 2 tablespoons of oatmeal without additives. Close the bowl, shake it well.
When the husks swell, apply a mask of bay leaf on the clean face and neck. Wait half an hour and rinse. It is better to use a freshly prepared mixture each time. Repeat the procedure twice a week.
Potion for problematic skin type
Boil half a cup of water. Add 10g (0.35 oz) sliced bay leaf and cook for 2 minutes. Leave a decoction of the bay leaf until completely cool. Then strain and use the liquid instead of face toner once a day for a week.
After completely absorbing the product, rinse your face and apply the cream and then your usual makeup. Such decoction should be stored in the refrigerator.
To normalize the sebaceous glands and remove the swelling, grind 5 bay leaves in a bowl, pour one cup of boiling water, leave for two hours, strain and add 2 tbsp of lemon juice. Wipe your face with lotion in the morning and evening.
The bay leaf facial will help to keep your skin healthy and stop the aging process. Share tips with your friends and save money by visiting a cosmetologist.
