Dr. Oz reminded us that great facials don’t have to come from the department store and break the bank! The one he mentioned on his show was a combination of nutmeg powder and honey.
I have my own recipes:
If you have never tried mayonnaise on your hair, you have missed a great way to rebuild the protein, add moisture and shine, and its pennies per treatment. Take 2 tbsn and mix with one tbsn organic olive oil. Mix it into your hair, and wait 30 minutes. The vinegar in the mayo actually cuts the buildup of hair products, and the protein in the egg and the oil rebuild your hair shaft. Of course, don’t forget…you must shampoo it out!
Facial to Restore Skin, non-drying:
As you age, your skin seems to have trouble maintaining moisture. Part of the problem is the need to rid your dead skin cells (scrubbing needed) and part of it is the lack of nutrition. This is not “pretty” but it is amazing. Mix 2 tbsn of honey with 2 tbsn of oatmeal, rough cut. Do not cook…you want the hard oats. Next, add a tbsn of olive oil. The mixture is difficult to mix, but give it about a minute of stirring. Slather on your face and wait 30 minutes. Rinse in warm water, while scrubbing with the oats. Keep your eyes shut!
Facial to Improve Acne:
This facial was famous when I was younger. Whip up 2 egg whites. Add the juice of one lemon, or about a slight tbsn. Spread on face and wait 30 minutes. The egg whites work to clean the oil from the pores, and the lemon juice provides vitamin C to your skin. Rinse in warm water, then close your pores with cold water
Enjoy your skin renewal treatments and let me know how they work for YOU!
