Smooth, well-cared-for skin is everyone’s dream, but fatigue and the signs of aging give no one a break. Here’s how to care for your face with a natural oil that you can easily prepare at home.
Life is a constant succession of things to do, responsibilities and commitments to fulfill, so the free time we have, as we know, is always very little. Often, therefore, we find ourselves making announcements, and in those cases, absurd as it may seem, we tend to put everything to do with ourselves on the back burner.
An afternoon of relaxation and healthy shopping, for example, are some of the things we think are not essential. In reality, they contribute substantially to the well-being of our heart and mind. Another very important activity is self-care, characterized by all those little attentions to ourselves that, after all, do not require us to devote large amounts of time to them.
One of the things we all pay special attention to – women above all – is undoubtedly the skin of the face. As you all know, it is particularly susceptible to the appearance of fine wrinkles, as well as signs due to seasonal climate changes and excessive fatigue. Creams and serums on the market are often very expensive, but not everyone knows that it is possible to remedy this problem. How? Let’s find out together.
The perfect natural oil for smoothing the skin
The face is one of the most delicate parts of our body, so it is good to take care of it constantly and, if possible, with natural products. To get a smooth and polished skin and, at the same time, not to spend an excessive amount of money, we can appeal to a simple DIY recipe with only two ingredients: extra virgin olive oil and sage leaves.
Cura della pelle
To make this easy recipe, the first thing we need is a food processor, and place inside it two tablespoons of sage leaves. Now all that remains is to run the appliance until the spice is reduced to powder.
Next, transfer the chopped sage to a glass jar, pour 100 ml of extra virgin olive oil over it and mix well.
Once the mixture is prepared, it is necessary to use a pot in which, first of all, a clean cloth or a small towel should be placed. Then, place the jar (without the lid) in the pot and fill it with hot water until it reaches half of the container.
Sage oil ready in only twenty minutes
At this point, the recipe is almost finished. The last step is to put the pot on the stove, turn on the heat and let it warm up for about twenty minutes. After this time, all that remains is to let our oil cool, and once ready, with the help of a strainer and two layers of gauze, we can strain filter it and store it in jars in the refrigerator.
Prendersi cura di sé
To get the skin we have always dreamed of, simply apply the natural oil of sage just once a day and leave it on for a few minutes.
