Carrot Facial Mask!

How to make a carrot & honey facial maskHi everyone,

Its been awhile. Sorry! I am trying to get back into my blogging routine:) So I just tried this Carrot Facial Mask a couple days ago and became a huge fan. It is super easy to make and truly works. I am not a fan of the smell, but I enjoyed the feeling it gave my face. I think it’s a great alternative if you need a quick remedy. Carrots are very high in vitamin A and C!

Here is how you all can make it:

-2 large carrots (Carrots help regenerate skin cells and protect skin from free radicals)

-Peal the carrots and steam until they are soft.

-Then mash the carrots into a creamy consistency. 

-1 tablespoons honey (Honey will reduce inflammation as well as swelling.)

 

Enjoy!

Quick & Easy Skin Remedies!

 skincare remediesHi everyone,

This entire post is dedicated on quick & easy homemade remedies. Enjoy!

Chapped Lips:

-Apply a thin layer of Vaseline on your lips and rub gently with your fingers or for better results with an old toothbrush.

-Crack open a Vitamin E gel capsule and rub into your lips.

-Rub sesame oil or olive oil on your lips.

Flaky Skin:

-Rub half of an apple on the skin to help even out your skin’s texture.

-Sprinkle sugar in your palm and dampen with water. Massage it on the flaky areas gently and rinse with luke warm water.

Dehydrated Skin:

-Mix 2 drops of lavender oil with baking soda and water until it becomes a paste texture. Apply it onto the face and leave it on for 5 minutes. Rinse with cool water and follow with moisturizer.

Tired or Dull Skin:

Refrigerate aloe vera gel for about an hour. Apply on face and lie down for 10 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water.

-Lie on your back and hang your head over the side of a bed for 5 minutes. This will feed oxygen to your face and improve your color and tone.

Oily Patches:

-Keep a spray bottle of rose water inside the refrigerator and give yourself a wake-up spritz in the morning, after you wash your face. You may also dab it on a cotton ball and apply before going to bed onto clean skin.

Pimples:

-When showering put a small amount of baking soda onto the palm of the hand and rub into your skin. This will help get rid of pimples and blackheads.

-Dot a bit of clay mask on your pimples and leave it on overnight. Rinse off in the morning.

Soak a piece of bread in milk and place it on the pimple. Lie down for it to soak it in for about 30 minutes and rinse after.

Inflamed, Irritated, or Sensitive Skin:

-Make a pot of Chamomile tea and pour it into an ice cube tray to freeze it. After it is frozen wrap a cube in a thin cloth and rub gently on face.

Soak a small cloth into milk, squeeze, and apply onto the affected area for 10 minutes. Rinse after with luke warm water.
