The Natural Manicure

If you want to have prettier hands, you can use natural ingredients that won’t cost a lot of money and that also don’t contain cancer causing chemicals. Here are a few easy steps to have prettier hands, naturally. First, fill a small bowl with warm water and a few drops of olive oil, along with your favorite relaxing essential oil, such as lavendar, rose or ylang ylang. Soak your hands for a few minutes to soften cuticles. Second, push your cuticles back gently with an orange stick. Using a cuticle nipper, trim excess skin and any potential hangnails. Don’t go overboard – you don’t want to remove your cuticles entirely. Third, whip up a sea salt or sugar scrub. Combine 1/3 cup sea salt (you can also use sugar), the juice of one lime (or lemon), and 1 Tablespoon olive oil...

First, remove your makeup thoroughly with olive oil on an organic cotton pad or wash cloth and rinse well with warm water. Then add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to a bowl of very warm water. Rose oil and lavender oil are good choices. Wring out a washcloth in the water and lay it over your face until it cools, then repeat with more warm water. Do this for about 5 minutes.

Here are some delicious homemade sugar scrub recipes to save you money. Oatmeal Sugar Body Scrub Ingredients: 2 Tablespoons rolled oats 2 teaspoons brown sugar 2 Tablespoons aloe vera 1 teaspoon lemon juice Instructions: Put rolled oats in blender and blend into a very fine powder.

Learn to accept your natural look.

Freckles are cute and don’t have to be covered up. Curly hair is beautiful and doesn’t have to be straightened. Pale makes you look like a Gothic beauty – embrace it! Whatever you think of as a “flaw”, I would be willing to bet someone else admires that trait. Ask your hairdresser to help you choose a style that works with your facial shape and hair texture. The more you try to change your natural look the more money and time you’ll spend. Now let’s get to the recipes! Let’s start at the beginning: Cleansing. It’s the first step in skin care. Ginger Garrett, author of Beauty Secrets of the Bible was kind enough to let me share this recipe. Rich Milk Wash

  • 1 cup quick-cooking oats

H2EO Diffusers for Relaxing Sleep & a More Beautiful You

Far superior to other essential oil diffusers and glass nebulizers, the H2EO Cool Mist Ultrasonic Diffuser uses no heat or air pumps (which can seriously damage the chemistry of essential oils). This diffuser uses safe low voltage direct current. Colored light options set the mood for healthful sleep. All lights can be turned off (including the red power light) while diffusion continues. When the water level gets low, the diffuser shuts itself off.

While the H2EO diffuser‟s “shell” looks similar to the generic model on the market, there have been vast improvements made which are exclusive to H2EO diffusers. Features include:

• Multi-colored lights options

Ability to turn all lights off (including the red power light) for operation while sleeping

• Quiet diffusion of any pure ...

Exfoliating Liquids & Scrubs

Liquid Exfoliants:

For sun-damaged, sensitive, acne-prone skin or those with rosacea, consider using a cream or liquid cleansing exfoliant such as Glycolic Cleanser with Marine plant extracts. They help gently exfoliate without irritating the skin.

An excellent spray body exfoliator and hydrator I‟ve recommended to thousands of individuals is called Skin-lasting Super Hydrator. Formulated by a dermatologist, this all-natural, paraben-free, fragrance-free, spray contains Vitamin C, lactic acid and non-pore clogging vegetable glycerin. It comes in a large 6 oz spray bottle for under $26. Apply it onto to face, neck, chest, arms, legs, hands and feet after showering. Also beneficial for those with extremely dry or diabetic skin.

Yogurt & Lemon Mask (For Normal, Dry, Oily or Blemish-Prone Skin)

Combine 2 tbsp. plain yogurt with 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice and apply mixture to clean face. Leave on for 20 minutes (until the mask dries), then wash it off with tepid water. Some women leave the mask on overnight for an even brighter and tighter complexion in the morning. Enzyme peels and masks like pumpkin or papaya are very popular and can be used on ALL skin types. Enzymes gently dissolve dead surface layers, improve skin texture, firm the skin, remove impurities, help heal blemishes, brighten and even skin tone, and are rich in vitamins and minerals. Spas charge about $65 to $85 for an enzyme peel. Did you know you can give yourself an enzyme peel for about $3, with a papaya? See my recipe below:
