Skip the Drugstore! – Best at Home Skincare Products

Skincare Back to Blog


Your skin goes through a lot every single day. Pollution, UVA/UVB rays, stress, poor nutrition, and that extra glass of wine you’re having at the end of an exhausting work day, all take their toll on your skin’s appearance and health. Not to mention, the changing of the season can affect your skin’s pH levels and dry it out.

But, you know all that already and are doing your best to take care of your skin and protect it from the elements. What you want to learn is how to step up your fall facial skin care routine and keep your complexion healthy and soft throughout the rough winter months.

The answer may be hiding in your kitchen cabinet!

At The Advanced Center for Plastic Surgery, we know that Mother Nature holds the key to perfect skin. So, we’ve compiled a list of the best at home products for facial skin care. Don’t worry – if you don’t have time to make these remedies on your own, we have an amazing solution for all you busy bees out there.

Let’s dive right in!

Turmeric Chickpea Mask 
  • One teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Four tablespoons chickpea flour
  • Milk or water

Mix the turmeric powder with the chickpea flour. Add enough milk or water to form a paste. Apply it onto your face and neck, leave it on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with plenty of water.

Turmeric is rich in curcumin, a strong antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory agent. It eliminates free radicals and enhances production of collagen that keeps the skin supple and glowing all year long. The chickpea flour, on the other hand, acts as a gentle cleanser and brightening formula.

Coconut Oil as Moisturizer

Warm up the coconut oil and apply it on your face and neck. Massage for a few minutes until it is absorbed. You can even use it instead of your regular night cream.

Coconut oil locks in moisture and deeply nourishes the skin. It is also great as a cleanser for waterproof makeup, as a hair mask, and body lotion.

Avocado Honey Moisturizer
  • Three tablespoons fresh cream
  • ¼ ripe avocado
  • One tablespoon organic honey

Blend all ingredients until they form a smooth paste. Apply on freshly cleansed skin and leave it on for an hour. Rinse off with warm water.

This homemade moisturizer acts as an anti-aging formula as it helps your skin retain moisture, and it makes your complexion soft and supple.

Rose Water Skin Toner

Chill the rose water in the refrigerator for at least half an hour. Pour some on a cotton ball and apply all over your face and neck. Repeat twice a day, in the morning and the evening before moisturizing.

Rose water is a natural skin toner. It cleanses, rebalances, refreshes, and brightens the skin by stimulating blood circulation. It is ideal if you want to ditch your regular alcohol-based toner during the cold months and swap it for something gentler.

A Preventive Skin Care Regimen That You Will Love

As mentioned above, if you don’t have the time to prepare the remedies above or sit for one hour with a mask on your face, then we have the perfect solution. Obagi is one of the best preventive skin care regimens you can find today. Unlike other facial skin care treatments, Obagi uses a combination of effective ingredients that provide early intervention for lack of radiance, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dull complexion, uneven texture, and dry skin. It is more than a three-in-one solution for cleansing, exfoliation, and deep hydration but also a trusted ally in your skin care regimen.

You can purchase Obagi360 System at The Advanced Center for Plastic Surgery too. Get in touch with us if you to find out more about how this product works and how to make the most of it.
