Home-made Beauty Recipes for Skin

There are so many fun ways that you can take care of your sensitive skin using natural foods, healing oils and gentle herbs. Here are just a few! Have fun with these, and experiment to come up with your own natural recipe for skin care.

Facial Steam - This is a gentle way to open pores and cleanse your skin. Boil some water and then drape a towel over your head. Place your head over the steam, close enough to feel the warmth but not too close! Breathe and relax for three minutes, then gently tone and moisturize your skin. If you have acne you can add a little cider vinegar to the mix.

Sea Salt Body Glow - Mix 2 parts sea salt or dead sea salt to 1 part baking soda. Blend in enough natural, cold pressed oil such as coconut, grapeseed, or jojoba oil to make a paste. Stand in the shower and scrub your skin gently with it, and then rinse. Aaaah, you'll feel great!

Gentle Make up Remover - Blend equal parts castor oil and olive oil, and slightly less of grapeseed oil. For example, use 1 tablespoon castor and olive oil and 2 teaspoons grapeseed oil. If you are allergic to olive oil, try coconut oil. Apply to your face, remove with a warm cloth and rinse. Can be used to remove eye makeup too!

Gentle Facial Cleanser - Mix a few tablespoons of organic whole milk yogurt with some fresh chamomile tea. Apply to your face and rinse off with a warm facecloth. Will keep in the refrigerator for a few days.

Gentle facial toner - Mix a little aloe vera juice with an equal amount of water. Splash on your face after cleansing for a soothing and invigorating toner.

Gentle Facial Exfoliation - Grind ten to twenty almonds to make a fine, smooth almond paste. Now place 2 tablespoons of organic whole milk yogurt into a cut and add enough of the ground almonds to make a smooth paste. Apply to your skin, GENTLY. You can also leave on your face for a few minutes as the yogurt is nourishing and has natural alpha hydroxy acids which will exfoliate your skin.

If you have hyper sensitive skin, use smaller amounts of almond meal or just use the yogurt. Yogurt is gentle for sensitive skin, and it provides cleansing, toning, moisturizing AND also exfoliation for the skin!


Fun And Simple Beauty Recipes for Facial Masks

Avocado- Take a ripe avocado, mash it well and apply to face, leaving for a few minutes. Yum!!!

Banana - simply mash a banana and apply to your face. If your sensitive skin can tolerate a few more ingredients, add a dab of cream or yogurt, some honey, and a touch of ground oatmeal. Mix and apply to your skin and let sit for a while.

Chocolate! Blend one tablespoon organic raw cacao powder (which is the raw form of chocolate) with one tablespoon organic full fat yogurt or cream. Apply to your face and let it set for a few minutes. Do this in the morning, as the natural caffeine in the chocolate is energizing.

Pumpkin - Take one or two tablespoons of organic canned pumpkin and apply to your face. Your skin will be soft and moist and dewy! Add a touch of honey and butter for extra moisturizing.

Manuka Honey is a special kind of honey that has a higher percentage of beneficial natural ingredients and healing properties, and it is absolutely wonderful for the skin. Simply apply a little to your face and relax for 20 minutes and voila! Your skin will be moist and radiant, blemishes will begin to heal and you can even use it on your lips.


so thats it.. what do u think?
does that interest u? i'd like to try them somehow..
well, maybe at home..
got no enough time yet for now.
i'm very concern about my skin..
if we didn't take a good care of it when we're still young,
imagine what will happen when we grow old??
eww.. my stomach shrink when i think about it.
so girls, its now or never.
growing old is something we cannot avoid.
but how we're gonna make it through does count.
thats all for now..
