PostSubject: Honey Yogurt Face Scrub   Mon Sep 03, 2012 10:49 am

Honey Yogurt Face Scrub

2 tsp organic, plain yogurt (full fat for dry skin, skim for oily skin)
2 tsp almonds or oatmeal, pulsed to a fine meal
1 tsp honey

Mix the ingredients and very gently massage over a clean face, concentrating on your forehead, nose, and other oily areas. Over-scrubbing sensitive areas like your jawline, even if you break out there, will cause irritation that can lead to more blemishes. Leave on your face for 15 minutes and rinse with warm water.

Yogurt is a natural but gentle exfoliant that stimulated blood flow. The almonds and oatmeal moisturize while digging impurities from your pores while the honey disinfects your skin.

PostSubject: Clay and Egg Firming Face Mask   Mon Sep 03, 2012 10:52 am

Clay and Egg Firming Face Mask

2 tbsp white clay
1 tbsp corn flour
1 egg white
1 drop chamomile oil

Blend the ingredients in a bowl so the egg white dissolves completely. Apply to a clean, dry face. If you donít have chamomile oil handy, you can use a teaspoon of chamomile tea. Let the mask dry and rinse with warm water. The clay cleans your skin, the egg protein acts as a shield, and the chamomile soothes.

Admittedly, not all of us have white clay in our cabinets! Itís okay; just drop by the gardening store for the stuff the next time you buy flowers.
