The Natural Approach

I have always believed in taking a natural approach to skincare.

 I believe products that are naturally scented with essential oils and jam-packed with botanical extracts make you and your skin feel more uplifted - not just your complexion. 
It makes sense to use some of the gifts that Mother Nature has given us. 

There is nothing more cleansing and relaxing than do-it-yourself skin care.
Fresh Home Magazine also has some fresh and easy DIY facial recipes.
So go home, have some fun and give yourself a facial at home!

Oil of Olé
This guac-inspired moisturizer is suitable for even sensitive skin.

2 tablespoons of fresh avocado, mashed
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon plain full-fat yogurt
½ teaspoon lemon juice

1.       Combine ingredients in a bowl.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2.       While you’re waiting for the mixture to chill, clean your face with a soap-free cleansing wash.  Make two mugs of green tea and put an ice cube or two in one of them.
3.       Smear a thin layer of the chilled mask on your face, avoiding your eyes.  Sit back, relax for 10 or 15 minutes, and sip the warm tea.
4.       Rinse with lukewarm water.  Slowly splash your face with the cooled tea, and then rinse with water again.  Powerful antioxidants in tea help skin stay healthy.
Note: Don’t use black tea; it will stain your skin.

So needed after my sun holiday. Avocado is so good whether eaten or put on the skin. Your newest follower have a fun week.

I love it, but I would have trouble not eating it all! Especially since they tend to be a little pricey, but still a great idea. ♥♥
