Exfoliate, Brighten, Detoxify Now!
I remember my first at-home facial mask. You whipped up two egg whites and slathered on the white cream, waiting for it to dry. Afterwards, I would rinse with tepid water. Pat dry ... felt like baby skin! So soft and smooth!
So grab a friend or your daughter and make it a Spa Treat with these recipes to Exfoliate, Brighten, and Detoxify Now!
Flaky skin: Mix together 1 Tbsp oats, 1/2 tsp fi ne salt, 1 tsp milk powder, and 2 drops of olive oil (tried and true olive oil). Use a circular motion when applying on damp skin for a couple of minutes, then wash off.
Brighten skin: Crush 3 of each, raspberries, and blueberries, 1/2 tsp lemon juice, and 1 tsp fi ne brown sugar. Rub onto face, then rinse. The fruit enzymes and sugar smooth and brighten skin.
Detoxify: Make a paste of 1 Tbsp baking soda and 1 Tbsp water. By scrubbing your damp face for a couple of minutes with this concentrated mixture, you will be cleaning your pores and minimizing them.
Mask: Look for a honey-based mask to moisturize. Keep on for 10 minutes, then rinse with tepid water. I've also just applied honey from the pantry; leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.
So my Glamazons, get busy and feel great!
Buona Giornata and God Bless the USA!
