While you cannot stop the natural aging process completely, you can enhance your skin to a great extent by using natural products on a regular basis. My grandmother had great skin till the age of 80. Yes, she had wrinkles and fine lines, but her skin had an unmatched glow and she never bought any skin creams from random shops to beautify her skin, just regular stuff from her kitchen. This just goes to show how powerful natural products can be.

Creams out of jars are certainly convenient, but how good are they in the long run? Write to me to tell me whether you are a natural products fan like me (it’s all about the genes you see!) and use green tea for skin glow. If you haven’t yet, now is a good time to start and let me know whether it made any difference to your skin. Till then, keep glowing!
