Now I will tell you my favourite creams for your face. I love the new one by Aveeno active naturals, absolutely ageless. It is applied before bed to your face and neck and it’s a restorative night cream, your skin absorbs products best at night. You apply it after you have washed your face and it is applied every night, you will notice a difference in your skin in about a week.
Another face cream, I have always liked, is by Olay Regenerist, regenerating serum. It can be applied to your entire face and neck, but I like to use it mostly under my eyes and eye lids. I always buy the one for the face because the bottle is bigger and you get more bang for your buck. The one just for the eyes is a lot smaller and doesn’t last as long, and they both work exactly the same.
Another great product for the face is by Burt’s Bees, BB cream with Noni extract. It also has SPF 15 in it. It protects your skin from the damage of the sun, as it minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It goes on smoothly and gives you light coverage instead of a heavy foundation, and it’s 99.9% natural.
Now I will talk about homemade recipes that you can make in your own kitchen. I will start with a really easy one. If you are looking for a 100% natural deodorant try using a lime. Take a lime and cut it in half and rub it all over your clean underarms, then allow to dry. It will keep you smelling fresh and dry for hours. Another homemade recipe that is easy to put together is for your face, this face mask will leave your skin looking radiant. You will need ½ cup plain oatmeal, two big spoonful’s of honey, two spoonful’s of lemon, and three big spoonful’s of rosewater. Mix all together well and apply to clean dry face and neck, leave on for thirty minutes and then rinse off with warm water. Then as always a splash of cold water to close the pours, repeat 1x a week. My last recipe is a combination of homemade and product. Take two peeled avocados and smash them up with a fork in a bowl. Once they are are smashed up add your favourite conditioner to the avocado. Mix together well and apply to hair from top to ends of hair, massaging gently into hair. Then wrap hair with plastic wrap and leave in for one hour. After rinse out with warm water, then cool water. Your hair will look and feel healthy. Repeat 1x a week.
