Honey Grapefruit Cleanser
(for dry skin)
3 tablespoons whipping cream
4 tablespoons ground oats (not too finely ground)
2 drops pink grapefruit essential oil (optional)
Heat cream in microwave for 20 seconds. Remove cream from microwave and add honey. Stir well to dissolve all honey. Add oats and stir to make a creamy paste. To use, apply to face and neck in gentle sweeping strokes. Rinse with warm water.
This recipe should last 3 or 4 days- the shelf life of this product is necessarily limited by the fresh cream. It should be used within a few days, and kept refrigerated between uses.
Facial Scrub for Oily Skin
1 teaspoon skim milk powder
1 teaspoon runny honey
1/2 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
Mix the skim milk powder and honey. If your honey is stiff, try melting it in the microwave for just a few seconds as this may make the rosewater mix in more readily. Don’t leave honey in the microwave for too long, and don’t microwave honey too many times as repeated heating will cause it to become hard and unmanageable.
Add the freshly squeezed lemon juice. Mix well. To use, appply the mixture to clean face and neck area. Leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse well with warm water and pat face dry.
Carrot Facial Mask
(normal – oily skin)
* 2-3 large carrots
* 4 1/2 tablespoons honey
Cook carrots, then mash. Mix with honey. Apply gently to the skin, wait 10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water.
Cucumber Facial Toner
1/2 large cucumber (washed, unpeeled)
1 ounce witch hazel
Cut the cucumber in half. Puree the cucumber in a blender. How long you puree the cucumber is up to you. Once the cucumber is pureeed to your liking, strain the mixture into a glass bowl until you have about 2 ounces. Again, you can leave a little pulp if you like.
Add the witch hazel to the cucumber puree in the bowl and mix lightly.
Pour into a clean, sterilized container. After cleansing face and neck, shake toner gently to mix ingredients and apply with a cotton ball to face and neck.
*The shelf life of this product is necessarily limited by the fresh cucumber. It should be used within a few days, and kept refrigerated between uses.
