Do It Yourself Masks
*Oatmeal Scrub for Pennies
Add just enough warm water to loose oatmeal to form a paste and then
massage into your skin for a quick exfoliating facial. Rinse off and
your skin will be soft and free of those nasty dead skin cells that
results in muddy looking skin.
*Your Face Will Love It
Time for a smoothie... a facial smoothie. Every kitchen should have
a container of plain yogurt. It can be used in place of sour cream in
most food recipes, saving you tons of calories, but for this particular
recipe, you aren't going to eat it, you
are going to wear it. Blend
3 tablespoons of yogurt and 3 large strawberries, apply it and then
relax for 10 minutes. The yogurt cleans and nourishes and the
strawberries helps exfoliate those dead skin cells. Now isn't this a
good reason to plant yourself a strawberry plant next spring?
Summer Fruit Facial
-1 egg white
-1/2 an English cucumber
Puree all in a blender, apply to face and relax with a good book for
15 minutes. If there is any stinging sensation, remove the mask
immediately. This reaction will allert you to the fact that you have a
sensitivity to one of the ingredients.
