Tip #1: Apply your toner to your body
Yes, yes, you read correctly. We said BODY.
Like the face, the body appreciates extra hydration and, despite the fact that we are used to using them exclusively on the face, floral waters are the best option.
Have you ever noticed little scales on your legs or arms? Or that your skin itches a lot after bathing? It is normal.
The use of soaps causes the skin layer, which is naturally acidic, to become alkaline. Come on, it gets altered, causing similar reactions on your skin.
How can you solve it? Very easy.
Goodbye, scales and itchiness!
Tip No. 2: Feed and nourish the skin with vegetable oils
Think about it. What happens to the salad when you dress it with olive oil? Well, it is enriched and you benefit from the properties of fatty acids.

Tip No. 3: Sleep a lot and well
It may seem obvious, but do you practice it? Let us tell you that your body regenerates while you sleep.

Thus, without having to do anything but rest. And, on top of that, free.
Tip #4: Take advantage of the benefits of aromatherapy
Little is said about spring asthenia, its permanent fatigue and lack of energy.
It sounds like a cliché, but it is a reality: There is no better beauty trick than feeling good.
Therefore, although not suitable for allergy sufferers, here is another tip that will make you look your best: go for a walk in the late afternoon and enjoy the wonderful smell given off by the orange blossoms in the month of April, the first roses, the jasmine and the lady of the night.
It's proven. The benefits of aromatherapy they have a very positive impact on our brain and activating dopamine, also known as the pleasure hormone.
Tip #5: Make a homemade papaya mask
What why papaya? Well, because this fruit contains one of the most powerful enzymes known: papain.
Papain has the power to:
- Get your skin looking smooth, even and radiant by removing dead cells, even from the deepest layers.
- Activate collagen naturally and improve firmness of your face.
And all this little by little, gently and without irritating your epidermis.
Unlike the better known alpha-hydroxy acids such as glycolic or salicylic, you can use papain even if you have sensitive skin or are pregnant.
Keep this recipe on hand and if you can repeat the mixture and use it once a week for a month, even better:
-2 tablespoons of papaya puree
-1 tablespoon of yogurt (can be vegetable)
-1 tablespoon of cornmeal or white clay
Take some papaya and mash the fruit with a fork until you get a smooth paste.
Add a tablespoon of cornmeal or white clay to thicken it up and make it easier to apply.
If you also add yogurt, you will be providing extra vitamins and lactic acid to the mixture that favors luminosity.
Apply to the face, including the neck and décolleté, and leave it on for a maximum of 10 minutes.
Then, rinse with water and apply a toner and your usual serum on the skin.
