2. Olive Oil
Remove makeup by massaging olive oil into your skin for 1-2 minutes. Wash away with hot water and a washcloth (use soap if desired, but it’s not necessary). Reapply a tiny amount of olive oil if your skin needs extra moisture, focusing around the eyes and mouth. (Order high quality olive oil HERE.)
Just make sure you use REAL olive oil. Learn more about fake olive oil here.
Grind oats in a blender, food processor or coffee grinder. Use as an extra gentle exfoliating scrub. Learn how to make Oatmeal Cinnamon Soap here.
Yogurt makes a wonderful facial mask all by itself! The lactic acid softens and soothes the skin. Learn How to Make Homemade Yogurt Soap for Skin Health.
A honey face mask is another soothing mask for your skin. It especially calms redness and blemishes. Find more recipes for honey face masks here.
Eggs are for facials, too! Whipped egg whites are perfect for tightening pores and deep cleaning the skin. Egg yolks are full of vitamins and essential fats to nourish the skin.
Sugar isn’t so bad for your skin! On those days you need extra exfoliation, a gentle sugar scrub will leave your skin feeling soft and fresh. Check out this list of Beautiful Sugar Scrubs for inspiration.
