Back in the day of perfect skin,
Really, not even one line?
Look older but better,
with only 3 days of treatments.
Perhaps when you glanced at the pictures the change was not as drastic but keep in mind that they were all taken in the same gloomy Northwest weather, outdoors. My hair color and weight are similar in the three pictures and the only difference is that in 2006 I took time to cleanse, scrub and mask. Three years later bad habits formed and I didn't even notice as my skin became bumpy, oily and blotchy. I realize that you can't see all that in the photo but a noticeable difference still stands, without even seeing the condition of my skin I look more refreshed, relaxed and elastic (some how even the wrinkles under my eyes faded).
I knew that we couldn't afford fancy treatments or creams so I searched on-line for a miracle. The information was there and I wrote down 3 recipes, from a site that unfortunately has a virus today so I can't send a link just yet but its www.cosmeticsdiary.com if you want to check it out later.
I do want you to know that before I did any of these I did use a store bought cleanser and scrub that I already had.
Biore Strips: to clean those unsightly pores
1 1/2 Tbsp Heated milk
1 Tbsp Unflavored Gelatin
Mix together and apply to face. It takes about 10-15 minutes to dry but once it is just peel back and amuse yourself. I loved this recipe a lot for many reasons. One of those reasons is that it is really easy, another is that it's warm on the face and also because I love to see results.
Tomatoe Mask: for Blemishes...UGH.
1 Ripe Tomatoe, diced
3 Tbsp Oatmeal, Old-fashioned or Instant
1 tsp Lemon Juice
The recipe called for being diced and mixed together, with only 1 Tbsp of Oatmeal but it was too runny so I added more Oatmeal and Processed it together. It made enough for 2 times so I refrigerated the rest for the next day. I loved that it was cool and tingly on my face but it was still runny so take a towel, just in case.
Pineapple Olive Oil Mask:
1/2 cup Pineapple
3 tbsp Olive Oil
I would process this one as well just because I prefer a paste substance. I actually didn't try this one out yet but I am planning on it for the weekend. It sounds promising and I am looking forward to my results.
I realize that some of you may have great products that work for you but this post is only to encourage the use of home made products because I saw results in only 3 applications. So go ahead and find something that will work for you, or give these recipes a chance. Either way, join me on this journey because we are not getting any younger......
