Lemonade Bath and Body Scrub

In a bowl place all of the below:
1 cup of sunflower oil
2 cups of Epsom salts
1 fresh lemon squeezed into this mixture (no seeds please)

The zest of a lemon a refreshing rejuvenating surprise!Epsom salts are great for stress,detoxifying and for body aches.The lemon in it really brings back memories of my trips to Italy! Enjoy!

This weekend between work,church and domestic goddess duties I made this in my bathroom my husband affectionately calls my beauty laboratory. We BOTH loved this lemony scrub in the tub or in the shower. Good for at least 4 treatments.
I hope you enjoyed a fabulous fun weekend.
One day whip up some fresh lemonade to drink and this recipe to pamper yourself in lemons too.

Day 17 to beautiful skin!

4.0.1
Think you have acne?

It is a problem for many people.One of the main things for sure is chocolate and greasy foods don’t always cause acne nor make it worse. Keeping your face and hands clean. Keeping your hands off your face IS important! Change your pillowcase often.
My dermatologist warns a few zits are not acne! Besides genetics here are some other reasons you may develop acne.
Hormones,stress,bacteria,lack of sleep,your diet,food allergies,poor cell turnover,cosmetic related allergies and an over active sebaceous gland can cause acne flair ups.

D.I.Y Skin Toner for Blemished Skin

1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice
1 cup of water
2/3 cup of witch hazel

Mix all of the above together and use nighlty and play with it first to see how your skin reacts to it. Apply with cotton pad and stay away from eye area or lips. It will also brighten your complexion/skin.

*This recipe is from a client of mine who has acne and swears by this.I tried it… it feels refreshing! If you are allergic to any of the above please do not try this recipe.
If you have a noticeable strong case of acne or any skin concerns consult a dermatologist…Doctor knows best.

Day 7 to more beautiful skin!

Drink up! Proper and daily hydration is a must for healthy skin and more. Stay hydrated and drink water daily. Women and men need to be aware winter not just a heat wave is an important time of year to keep fluids flowing. No beer doesn’t count. Water is the fountain of youth and nature’s best kept secret.

DON’T LIKE WATER? Really? I love it and live for it. Make your own Spa Water like they serve at chic and infamous spas all over the world. My fav’ is water infused over night with slices of lemons,orange and a mini bundle of mint muddled. Strain and pour yourself a glass of this cool, refreshing and delightful water.
