Since going natural, it has made me take a step back and look at everything i use, not just my hair. So i started to look around for a way to get rid of my dry skin and now i no longer use or buy lotion!
I make my own exfoliating scrubs, facial mask, and lighten cream.
- Olive oil
*It doesn’t matter how much sugar you put but it does matter how my olive oil you put. If you put to much, the sugar will disintegrate. Put enough olive oil so that the sugar will soak it up. I never measure, i just know when, go figure.*
Use this one your legs, face, feet, arms, back, ANYWHERE! I promise you, you will never buy another body scrub again!
- Shea Butter
- Olive Oil
- Vitamin E Oil
*This is by far the best thing i have ever used on my dry skin. Only use about a 2 TBSP of glycerin because that stuff can get grease. Everything else, i don’t measure.
Let the shea butter be the base of it all. Have more shea butter in this mixture more than anything.*
My dry skin is clearing up so fast using this. And my stretch marks used to look like somebody continuously stabbed me in the side…they are on the way outta here!
You can also take this up a notch if you have EXTREMELY dry skin by applying this to your skin and then turning on the humidifier while you sleep at night. Glycerin is a humectant so it will take all the moisture from the air and put it into your skin.
- Olive Oil
- 1 Egg white
* Make the oatmeal the base of this mixture. ONLY add the egg white. Leave on for about 15 min – 25 min.*
Acne?? What acne! I don’t get that or know what it is. If you have a bad breakout, use this every night or every other night and i promise your skin will clear up like nothing ever happened.
If you make too much, whatever you use, keep it refrigerated.
- 1 tsp Glycerin
* Blend the entire lemon. Of course cut it up first but the reason i say this is because there is more acidity in the lemon’s skin which make it a better brightener than just the juice alone.*
I did this 4x a week on my dark circles under my eyes. I just applied it there before i went to bed at night and washed it off the next morning. My dark circles have improved so much. I kinda strayed from it (lazyness) but i will be going back. Keep this refrigerated.
