Wake Up Your Winter Skin

Need to work a little magic on your complexion (and pocketbook?) this season? Here are three brilliant remedies you can make right in your own kitchen

 

These are three of my favorite ways to brighten up complexions during the dull cooler months. The best part? You most likely have most of the ingredients in your fridge or pantry.

 

1. HONEY SKIN CLEANSER

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon honey

2 teaspoons cider vinegar

Instructions: Mix ingredients. Apply to face gently and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

 

2. SIMPLE EXFOLIANT
(This is my favorite use for baking soda—a fantastic exfoliator.)

Instructions: Mix 3 parts baking soda with 1 part water. Scrub onto face and rinse for skin that’s baby’s booty smooth!

 

3. COOLING CUCUMBER FACIAL MASK
(My humble, yet effective facial mask recipe that has never failed me. It invigorates the skin and gives your complexion a glow unlike no other.  Believe me, sweethearts: your skin will thank you for this one!)

 

3 Cucumbers

1 egg white

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Instructions: Smash the cucumbers to a pulp. Add egg and lemon juice, and mix well. Spread evenly on face and let sit for 20 minutes. Rinse.

 

Digging this idea? Keep it up! I recommend The Cosmetics Cookbook: Over 50 recipes to beautify your face, hair, and entire body you can whip up at home for practically pennies! by Lisa Sharon Belkin. It's filled with some of the most valuable tips you'll ever come across to keep you gorgeous.

 

I hope some of these tips come in handy. I'd love to hear your feedback-so don't be afraid to drop me a line.

 

Bisous my Beauties!
