As requested I am doing a skin care special. Here are some great tips for amazing, glowing skin for all my beautiful followers:
Yogurt & Honey
Probiotics in your beauty products can give you brighter, more resilient skin. But since you are so not going out in this mess yet, try using the real thing. Combine two parts plain yogurt (Greek or regular, the fattier the better!) and one part honey in a small bowl. Spread it all over your face and sit back for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and reveal a brighter, calmer you.
Baking soda + Honey + Water
It sounds strange but you can essentially just wash with honey if you have very sensitive skin. Throw in a little baking soda for a scrub—which helps boost circulation but doesn’t tear off your top layer of skin—and voila! Glowing skin. Here’s how to do it: Combine one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of baking soda in your palm. Rub them together with a few drops of water and then massage gently in circular motions on your face. Let sit for a minute then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Eggs + Olive Oil = Moisturizing Hair Treatment
Gross? Maybe in theory, but this easy at-home hair repair treatment works like a charm. Mix two eggs and one-third cup of olive oil into a bowl. Apply to your hair and scalp and massage it for a few minutes. Cover with a plastic cap or old towel and after 15 to 20 minutes, rinse and condition. The olive oil is one of the strongest emollients you can find, making sure the fatty acids from the oil and the protein in the eggs penetrate your strands for stronger, shinier hair in just 15 minutes. If you prefer the smell of coconut oil, you can use that, instead.
Brown Sugar + Milk + Vanilla
Brown sugar is the ultimate base for a good scrub and we could easily spout off dozens of effective combinations, but this basic recipe is all you need to polish your whole body back to its smooth self. Just combine two parts milk with one part brown sugar and a few drops of pure vanilla extract (if you have it—if not, omit) in a bowl. In your shower or tub, gently scrub in tiny circles from head to toe. Rinse and bathe normally. For an extra boost of moisture and good-for-you nutrients, add an egg yolk.
Try these in the meantime and…..
For tomorrow I will be sharing the second part, and I saved for last the best.
