Home-made Beauty Tips

photo-1.JPG TV 4  8-16-2014Celebrate your face and skin this summer with these natural beauty recipes!

I love to shop Whole Foods Market and the Farmers markets for the ingredients to make these D.I.Y. recipes.
All of my recipes are cheap,quick and easy to make. And unisex…your daughter or sweetie can get in on the touch of the spa action too.

Key Lime Pie Body Treatment
2 cups of plain Greek or regular yogurt (use less if you are making a smaller portion)
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 tablespoon of honey (Bee Friends Farm)
1 tablespoon of lime

Blend all of the above and pour into a plastic bowl. Sit at the edge of the tub and rub on your body.Leave this treatment on at least 15 minutes.Rinse well and enjoy the way your skin feels.
* I like to scoop any remains and recycle re-purpose and place in a jar and save for another day.Lasts nicely in the refrigerator for a week or more.

Skin Brightening Lemon Cups

Say Bye Bye to dry discolored skin with this skin treat.
Next time you prepare a meal with lemons or make lemonade save the leftover lemons and rub the inside of the lemons on your elbows.This treatment will gently exfoliate and help the discoloration most of us get on our elbows and knees.Rub the meaty part of inside of a lemon and go round and round motion on your elbows. It can also be done to your kneees.Rinse with luke warm water and a washcloth.Apply your favorite hand and or body lotion.

Bathe in Beauty

I love to to take a bath and surround myself with things that are pretty. Make your body happy with this awesome bath idea.
Sprinkle your fave bath salts or Epsom salts in warm bath water.Add a couple edible flowers. Pour yourself a glass of your favorite drink or fresh water in a plastic glass and enjoy eating an edible flower too. It is kinda FUN.Make it even more decadent and add a piece of decadent chocolate!

Be good to YOURSELF…if you don’t who will?

  1. I have an aloe plant and I’m curious to learn thing to do with it other than simply cut open and rub on my skin. Any ideas for other ingredients to add, other uses?

    • Hi Betty,
      The aloe plant is a form of a cactus plant that does many things. It is great for a sunburn,for acne or a blemish,allergies from makeup to soothe the skin,from a burn when cooking in your kitchen and for lip canker sores. It also can be enjoyed by the glass to help with digestion.Aloe is found in some of the brands on the market today.But,the plant can give you pleasure and help for some of the above conditions but it needs to be taken in other forms or in products to enjoy the benefits of aloe further.Stay tuned for future aloe recipes on my blog.I have been drinking aloe juice for skin and health for years.
      xoxo
