Skin Discoloration – DIY face mask

Skin Discoloration – detoxifying DIY face mask

diy face mask

Found this on youtube for you, this mask can be good for you even if you don’t have acne. Actually I would exclude the salt in case of active acne, use a teaspoon of flour or milled oatmeal instead to make the mask easier to apply.

Will make you feel like you have just walked out from the beauty spa.

1 teaspoon raw honey

1 teaspoon Himalayan salt (I prefer milled oatmeal)

1/2 teaspoon Apple cider vinegar.

Massage thoroughly into your skin, the massage is very important, don’t skip it!

Twice a week will do the job.

Good Luck! And do share your opinion here, we want all to learn.

Learn how to make bath salts for your self, your friends or to sell. It can save you from Christmas overdraft. And will give your friends a lovely, scenty memory.

The easiest DIY ever. Watch the video to see how easy it can be.

You can pack your bath salts in a little bag instead of a jar. I think a paper bag can look nice with the right label.

You can use Cinnamon for coloring and of course that will add scent too.

Scent ideas:

Patchouli – Lavender – Vanilla

Bergamot – Lemongrass

Orange – Sandalwood

Cinnamon Leaf – Frankincense

And of course Lavender for a good night sleep. After a warm lavender and epsom salt bath you are sure to sleep like a baby:)

Or any other combination that makes you feel good.

Knee safe aerobics to make you sweat gracefully for your beautiful skin

sweat for beautiful skin

Sweat your way to a beautiful skin

Hi gorgeous

Today, something different.

I know I’m not supposed to say these words

But after 40 you just must do some exercises to look good

And I’m talking not only about your body but mainly about clearing your skin

lifting up your mood and making you smile more often.

In these days of air conditioning everywhere

and sitting in front of the screen all day long.

You just have to sweat a little to clean your blood a bit

Feel alive and in general turn your system on.

On the other hand you do have to do it gently though.

I have knee problems from rope skipping,

Something that looked like a good idea back then.

Now I know, less is more, it’s all about doing the exercises regularly.

Found this lovely French woman with adorable accent,

You just got to love her:)

Some remarks:

I do it with no weights, not necessary if you ask me

When I started I did only 1 circle (15 min)

You’ll be amazed how easy is it to get fit if you do it every day.

If you made it, you can mark it in the comments as completed

To your beautiful skin,

Tsahallah.

Ideas For Decreasing Skin care Issues

Hyperpigmentation natural

Ideas For Decreasing Skin care Issues

Skin care issues can tell a lot about your health and of course about your beauty. Variables, such as weather condition, temperature and tension  affect your skin, so it is very important to look after your skin.

Avoid the sun especially 10am – 2pm in most countries. All day long if you are in New – Zealand.  Use sunscreen or defensive clothing. The sun will age your skin.  This damage is almost irreversible so take care.

 

Skin care Issues

Drink enough water so your skin will stay moisturized as well and your body can get rid of toxins. If your physical body is appropriately moistened, the toxins that remain in your body will be eliminated and also your skin will benefit. This will give you a radiant appearance and a clear skin.

The manner in which you wash your face could contribute to skin problems. Hot water will dry your skin. it’s better to wash your face with lukewarm water. To keep as much moisture in for soft, flexible skin, gently pat your face dry with a towel.

Do not smoke if you want healthy and balanced skin. Smoking ages your skin, making you seem older than you actually are. It causes the blood vessels in the leading layers of skin to end up being thinner, minimizing blood flow, and makes the skin exhausted of oxygen in addition to various other crucial nutrients. Additionally, smoking weakens the collagen fibers of your skin. These fibers are exactly what firms your skin and makes it flexible. In general if you stop smoking you can solve not only your skin care issues but many more  health issues you may have.

excercise – it does just the opposite of smoking to prevent and solve your skin care issues.

All natural skin lightening products – Reviews from Etsy

All natural skin lightening products from Etsy.com – reviews

All natural skin lightening products

Hello beauties

I will try in this post to feature some real all natural skin lightening skincare. This natural thing is very misleading. Everybody wants to say that their products are natural and what do you know? they do say so. It sometimes mean that one ingredient is natural, sometimes half of the ingredients are natural almost never is it 100% natural.

First, I must reveal the fact that I make myself all natural skin Whitening products and yes, I sell them also on Etsy. So I may not be so objective but I will do my best.

I chose Etsy because I think it’s the only place where you can buy all natural skin lightening products or cosmetics in general and even see uncensored feedback about them.

My review are based on customer feedback, list of ingredients and general knowledge. I never tried these products myself. It’s not easy for me to stop using my products on my self to reveal my hyperpigmentation only in order to be a laboratory rabbit for another all natural skin lightening product. Sorry for that:)

OK guys,  let’s start:

Looks quite natural accept the emulsifying wax. There are quite a lot of emulsifying wax out there, it’s not clear which did she use but the rest is looking good.

Package: Pump bottle. Great!

Reviews: 7 people gave 5 stars.

“Leaves my skin feeling great. Quick delivery. I recommend “.

“Really impressed by this moisturizer! Gentle and not greasy. “.

“Great daily moisturizer. Not greasy at all. Absorbs right into my skin so I can apply my foundation without streaks. Great product.”

According to the reviews seems like a great moisturizer, no one talks about the brighteing effect in the reviews. Pity, we do want to know.

Lighten Me In A Bottle Natural Skin Lightening Brightening Whiten Skin Even Skin Tone by model supplies

(Not sure is this is really handmade, I find it hard to believe that a craftsman will call himself model supplies but maybe it’s just me)

Price: 17.56USD/60ml +shipping

Form: Gel, Can be nice, especially if your skin is very oily.

Directions for use: Apply daily, use sunscreen. Kojic acid can make your skin sensitive to the sun and cause spots – Catch 22.

Salicylic acid, Glycolic acid are not natural. Natural MSM is very rare in nature so probably laboratory made.

Package: Pump bottle. Great!

Reviews: Didn’t find any reviews since the last 6 month. Kojic acid is a mild skin lightener, Glycolic acid is used in chemical peelings so may be effective but I wouldn’t call this product natural.

“Also I can tell within a week that its starting to lighten my dark spots. Highly recommend.”

“It feels like skin therapy!”

“I didn’t receive this item on time so I contacted the store and with their apologies, they dealt with horrible weather conditions. So for having to wait longer, they apologize and upgraded my order. Great customer service. Also I can tell within a week that its starting to lighten my dark spots. Highly recommend.”

“It shipped and arrived sooner than I expected it to. Its done exactly what it was supposed to do, I love it. I’m very impressed with the changes I’ve seen in the few weeks I’ve used it. Obviously it won’t make me ivory, but has brightened my tan into a more golden color rather than dark brown. Bottom line is; I would definitely recommend this.”

Hope that you know now something more about All natural skin lightening products and how to assess them. With the transparency that the internet gives us today we can get a lot of objective information.

Which All natural skin lightening products do I choose? Well, of course mine, but I do think the 3rd might be good.

5 best natural methods to treat acne scars

What you should do in order to get rid of acne scars

Like having acne was not bad enough, now when you got rid of it at last, instead of getting a medal or another kind of prize you have got a souvenir:
Acne scars

Life’s tough buddy, but acne scars, like acne is not for life. Don’t give up. Some things can be done.

Exercise:

There is good news and bad news here. The good news is 10 minutes a day is more than enough. Even 3-4 times a week is also fine. Yay!!!! The bad news is that you have to sweat. Exercise detoxifies your body better than juicing. The sweat is mainly a sign that you are exercising in the right intensity. You don’t need to sweat a lot but you do have to reach the sweating level.

Look for interval training, tabata or videos. Consult your doctor first and listen to your body whn you do it. You won’t make it to the end at the first time but if you’ll keep doing it you will be amazed with your progress. You will gain plenty of health benefits from it and your acne signs will fade out gradually.

2. Aloe Vera:

For those of you with the big pores  kind of acne scars – You absolutely have to grow Aloe Vera in your backyard. I know it’s not easy in New – Zealand but I do see some Aloe Vera growing here and there. Which means it is possible. Another option is to become a good friend of someone who has Aloe Vera, real one, the kind that’s connected to the ground. I don’t believe in commercial Aloe Vera gel. I just never came across a real good one.

OK, now we understood what kind of Aloe do I refer to. Just apply it on your face daily for an hour or two and see what happens.

3. DIY Carrot mask:

Crash your carrot in the blender or just mash a cooked carrot or use some carrot juice from the juicer. 10 minutes on your face daily will do wonders. You can add some flour to the carrot mash to make it easier to apply. It won’t be too fast but continue doing this and see your acne scars fade away gradually.

4. 2 more easy ideas:

5. Use the all natural Beautyfields Skinlight soap:

Blemish Remover with lavender and tea tree oil

Blemish Remover with lavender and tea tree oil

 

Looks like a great recipe for everybody in need, for sensitive skin use only lavender and tea tree.

blemish remover

You can use cold pressed coconut oil instead of Jojobe oil. Cheaper and better, just mix very well and yeah, you’ll have to get used to the texture. It’s very hard i the winter but melts immediately when touches the skin.

Kindly leave a comment here with any sort of essential oil inquiries and tell us what your favourite uses for essential oils are!
