No Chemicals BEAUTY

photo Oats.JPGThe beauty of food! You can eat it and you can wear it for the sake of prettier looking skin too.

NO chemicals and no ingredients you can’t pronounce.

I LOVE Sundays not only because it is a spiritual kind of day but unless I am working out of town or traveling out of town I am off on Sundays and at home sweet home!

Sunday Funday… Time to recharge,relax and unwind.

It seems everyone’s skin is going through some kind of issue because of the weather. Despite the fact that they say Spring is in full swing!

IF your skin is dry,itchy and longing for some attention here is one of my recipes that I am doing on my face and neck toward my breasts today. Sometimes I switch things up and change an ingredient to add another instead. But this is my go to.

What you will need:

1 cup of oatmeal (not instant)

1/2 cup of local farmer honey

1/2 cup of cold-pressed olive oil

Place oatmeal in a mini grinder or food processor.

Grind the oatmeal into a powdery mix.

Add the honey  to the oatmeal and stir.

Lastly add the olive oil and mix with a spoon by hand in a bowl.

Smooth on a clean face. Leave on at least 10 minutes.

Rinse well with a lukewarm washcloth. Follow with your skin toner. I adore rosewater.  Next apply a dash of your moisturizer on your face and eye gel around your eye area.

You will love the way your makeup glides on smooth as silk and the way your skin feels and looks. Hydrated and happy!

I am almost done with my beauty book (Whenever I  think I am done writing it I want to add something else) and this is a peek inside  my beauty filled world.

Enjoy darlings!

 

 

 

Hot Red Mess!

I was on TV on a Morning Show again last Saturday and wanted to share with you a recipe from my TV segment.
I showed “Beauty rescues for beauty dilemmas”.
It is so hot yet people continue to play in the sun and strive for that sun kissed golden glow. But sometimes that fun in the sun turns into a HOT RED MESS sunburn. Your skin is on fire and you need to cool it down.

First doctors recommend taking an aspirin to cool your body heat down. If you can’t take aspirin ask your doctor about another form.

Next, BEFORE your skin really starts to itch and peel you need to take some inexpensive Aloe Vera gel, CVS DRUG store will work fine. It does not need to be expensive. Take an ice cube tray and fill in the empty cube section with ALOE Vera gel. Make sure it’s fresh and NOT last years bottle from your medicine cabinet. Freeze over night or at least a few hours. Pull out tray and check to see if is ready when you are. They freeze in my freezer pretty fast for me.

On clean skin apply the Aloe Vera ice cube and rub gently on affected areas.
It can be used on the face or entire body down to your toes. This is not only cool but will make your skin feel AMAZING and cool the heat. It will also help stop the chance or limit the time you have peeling, dry or itchy skin from the red sunburn.

I love Aloe for that unexpected KITCHEN BURN too and keep a fresh potted plant growing of it near my kitchen door.

Clear Aloe Vera gel can also act as a face primer when you have a burn or allergic reaction to something. I have even used it around my eye area. A little dab will do you.

This magical plants gel can also be used to help fight acne.

Aloe Vera gel is said to be good for insect bites, scalds and to heal blisters from our sky high stilettos!

Aloe Vera juice is a great stomach soother and if you have ACID REFLUX it can do wonders for your digestive tract. It also helps people with stomach ulcers, constipation and has detoxifying effects.

Buy a plant today and keep healthy the natural way!
