overpay for skincare products whose ingredient list you can’t even pronounce.

happy, healthy and winter ready the natural way!
Seal in the moisture
by applying plant-based oils like cocoa butter, aloe-vera or jojoba on
your face and body right when you get out of the shower. Theseaffordableoils go a long way, and will help protect your
skin from the elements. Rub a little on you lips for some moisturizing
nothing better than a cool face mask to refresh your skin. No need to
spend your cash on expensive lotions or store bought products because
everything you need for an amazing face mask can befound right
in your own kitchen! A great way to
keep dry winter skin at bay is by mixing one egg with Greek yogurt. After
your mixture is made apply it straight to your face and leave it on for five
minutes and then rinse and pat your face dry (And for goodness sake, take the
same precautions you would when cooking – don’t eat the raw egg, and make sure
you wash your hands well to avoid the remote risk of salmonella!)
help keep your skin soft and glowing, it’s important to exfoliate your skin
once a week. If you’re in the mood for something sweeter, good old sugar
is an excellent exfoliate! The rough texture gently scrubs away dry skin
and helps clear pores. To create this sweet smelling scrub, take an
equal amount of olive oil, white sugar and brown sugar, and then add 6 drops of
vanilla extract. Massage the mixture
right onto your face in gentle circular motions and soak in the beautiful
aromas while you exfoliate!
Your Coffee Grinds

soft plus smooth & lighten rough skin on your elbows? Concoct your
own inexpensive coffee exfoliate! Just take your morning coffee grinds
and mix in a tablespoon of lemon juice. It’s a little messy when you
apply the scrub, but you’ll be shocked at how good your skin looks & feels!
