Did you know the secret to the firmer, tighter and glowing or clearer skin you want is right in the comfort of your home? It might surprise you, but many household items or home remedies can be used to achieve our dream skin. We all know that feeling when we look in the mirror and wish our skin could be the way we picture it. When we find ourselves in this situation, what do most of us do? We go and get the next skincare product we hear about or see. 

Here are nine natural remedies that you can use to help you get firmer, tighter, and clearer skin:

Natural Remedies For Firmer Tighter And Clearer Skin

1. Coconut oil

Aside from it being a highly nutritious and delicious cooking oil, coconut oil contains properties that can feed your skin. It deeply moisturizes the skin and is helpful because dry skin hardly has any elasticity and is dehydrated. Massaging your face with one teaspoon of coconut oil for five minutes every day will help the skin increase its collagen production.

Furthermore, doing this will keep the skin looking plump and firmer longer. It serves as a moisturizer, and it also helps with sunburn and can be used as a deep cleanser. Thus, giving you firmer, tighter, and clearer skin. 

2. Honey

Honey, as we all know, is used for numerous purposes. However, it also serves as a natural moisturizer that tightens pores and calms acne. The properties in honey can help to fight bacteria and reduce inflammation on the skin.

Mixing together two tablespoons of honey with lemon juice will help to fight dark spots and brighten the skin. Massage your face with this mixture then leave for fifteen minutes. This will give you clearer and firmer-looking skin.

3. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a tropical plant majority of us have in our homes. It consists of Vitamin C, E, and beta carotene. The gel from Aloe vera aids with digestion and improves the immune system, relieves constipation, etc. However, it has other incredible benefits for the skin. Aloe vera helps to hydrate the skin. It also helps with aging. 

Also, the regular application of aloe vera gel improves the body’s natural collagen production. This is the protein responsible for keeping your skin toned and youthful. Extracting the gel and simply applying it over the face. Leave it on your face for 15 minutes and rinse off. This process will leave your skin feeling smooth and will help in tightening it.

4. Olive oil

Olive oil is a household product we all have in our homes. It is rich in vitamin E and very affordable. Olive oil can help promote skin reconstruction, which can help you to have clearer, firmer, tighter, and healthy-looking skin. Take only a few drops of Olive oil and then massage over the skin surface and neck twice a week. This will help to boost the skin elasticity making it firmer and tighter.

5. Turmeric

Turmeric is a spice most people have in their homes. It’s also used for cooking. It contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components. I’ve personal battled with acne for the longest time. Turmeric can help clear or fade off blemishes, pigmentation, or dark spots, which can be caused by acne scarring. 

Furthermore, it can also help in bringing out the skin’s natural glow. Mix a small amount of honey, rose water, or milk and turmeric. Apply it on your face. Also, leave it as a mask on your face for 15 minutes, and rinse off. The aftereffect of this paste will leave your face or skin looking smooth, clearer, firmer, and tighter.

6. Oatmeal

Oatmeal has some special properties that can serve as a good cleanser, moisturizers, and an anti-inflammatory agent. It can be used in soaking up excess oil on your skin, which clogs the pores, causing acne. More so, oatmeal helps in treating dry skin and removing dead skin cells. 

To achieve this, simply add some uncooked oatmeal and baking soda into your bathwater. If you have oily skin, boil your oatmeal and water and let it cool. Use the paste as a face mask and leave for 20 minutes then rinse off.  It would help in removing excess oil from the skin and also fight acne. Trust me when I say you’d love the feel of your skin later.

7. Sugar

Who doesn’t like a sweet tooth? Well, we can use sugar in our aim to achieve a firmer, tighter, and clearer skin. Sugar is used as an exfoliating agent. Exfoliating our skin is vital in achieving our desired skin. 

This process helps to remove the dead skin cells on our skin. Therefore, allowing whatever we use on our skin penetrate and work better. All you have to do is to mix some sugar with honey simply. In a circular motion, gently scrub your skin and rinse of. Doing this will leave your skin feeling soft.

8. Tomatoes

Did you know tomatoes can help reduce open pores and blackheads? Well, now, you do. The same tomatoes we eat every day and use for our cooking have natural bleaching and whitening properties that can lighten the skin. Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C, which know to brighten up the skin. 

Rubbing a slice of tomatoes directly over your face will help reduce open pores and allow you to obtain skin that glows brightly. Further, tomatoes also help in protecting the skin from sun damage. In other words, it serves as a source or sun protection. All you have to do is make a paste with the tomatoes and add two teaspoons of rose water. Apply the mixture on your face with a cotton pad, leave for 10 minutes then rinse off. This will help to keep the skin looking healthy and youthful.

9. Oranges

Natural Remedies For Firmer Tighter And Clearer Skin

Oranges have a lot of benefits. Apart from its being rich in vitamins, oranges also contain many antioxidants, which will make your skin look healthier and clearer. Oranges also provide the skin with freshness and clarity.

What you need to do is stay for about 20-30 minutes in a bath full of water and lots of sliced oranges. You will see the immediate difference it will make to your skin. Your skin will radiate and glow.

While using these simple homemade natural remedies to give you tighter, firmer, and clearer skin, we also need to realize that the upkeep of good skin depends on our lifestyle and diet. Also, treating those lightly is why your skin loses its elasticity sooner than it should. 

Therefore, while you do these natural remedies, keep in mind that we also need to eat healthily, and live a healthy lifestyle. What we put in our bodies will certainly reflect on the outside.
