Natural, homemade facial regiment


As the title says I`m writing today about a little different thank crocheting! We will chat about natural, home-made facial cleaner, toner, exfoliates! 
I will be 29 years old in February uhuhh.. and I never really cared for my skin. But slowly i do notice the changes in my skin, so decided to try to take care more of it. The problem what I met was COST. Blushing I tell you I`m not the all natural freak, but  why don`t make something your self, if it cost less than the ready product? 
My best friend is Google, so searched the internet for good recipes, what doesn't t need something extra, fancy or what's not in my kitchen anyway. 
So here are all the nice facial toners, cleaners recipes what I found easy , useful.

Natural make-up remover

I use since a time olive oil mixed with water to remove make-up. Most of the time I`m at home and don`t use make-up, but when I go to college or shopping sure use, we don`t want to scare people around, right? The olive oil and the water isn't mixing naturally so before every use I shake up my bottle very well, and apply a little on a cotton swab. I did hear, see people using just olive oil in self too, nothing bad about it!
Other what found on the internet is Coconut oil, yes the one from the food store :)

Natural toners/cleaners:

Milk! Plain simple milk. Strait from bottle, dab on cotton and tada enjoy.

Apple cider vinegar and water mix, 1:1 ratio but you might find you need to dilute the mixture more based on the sensitivity of your skin. Don`t was it off, the smell will go in some minutes, you wont be a walking salad :)

Rosewater! Lovely little thing and you can buy it ready. If you would like to can mix it with a little vegetable glycerine. 4 tablespoons Rose water to 3.5 oz. (100 gm) Glycerine.
Or mix 2 parts rose water and 1 part glycerin and make a lotion. Apply it nightly and let it work into your skin.

Cleaner for combination skin:

1/2 cup cup mild liquid soap

Sugar lemon juice scrub:

Combination skin use it just on the T-zone,use as any other scrubs.

1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice


Basic Aspirin mask

The most basic aspirin mask, it will give the aspirin all the room it needs to do its work. Afterward your skin will feel even, nice and soft, and very radiant.

5-6 uncoated aspirin
Few drops of water

How to do it:

Break the aspirin in halves and put them in a cup or small bowl. Add 4 drops of warm water and crush the aspirin with a spoon. If it doesn't dissolve immediately add 1 drop of water at a time until you have a smooth white paste.
Spread the paste gently and equally with your fingertips on your clean face and neck; keep the eye area clear ,leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes.

Then take it off by gently massaging it into your skin and washing it away with warm water and end with a splash of cold; pat your skin dry with a clean towel.


A little extra idea, recipe try the following for hardening your nails. Soak your nails in olive oil, slightly warmed . If your nails tend to crack apply to it glycerine before bed.
