a remedy to smooth skin is one of many this is buy making your own facemask this includes home made ingrediants.To make your facemask you will need oatmeal oats (porridge oats),curry powder,onion and milk. Here are the stages. 1.get a bowl and fill 1/4 of the bowl with the oats 2.boil the kettle 3.as the kettle is boiling get the onions and try and crunch/squish the onion down into the bowl of oats as much as possible 3.mix the squashed onion in with the oats 4.put 2 big pinches of curry powder into the bowl 5.pour minimum milk into the bowl 6.then when the kettle is boiled pour the hot water into the bowl of ingrediants *be careful not to pour too much water you want your facemask quite thick but a little sloppery. ONCE ALL PREPARED GET THE PASTE ONTO YOUR FACE AS FAST AS POSSIBLE WHILST IT IS STILL HOT

how I finally got my hair straight

I know straight perms are not recommended but even after 2 years of having my hair permed, I am still getting straight-frizz free hair. I also put a lot of conditioner on to my hair my hair after I shampoo and leave it on for a while (3-5 mins) and right after shower, I brush it with a comb!!!

Yogurt and Honey=Face Heaven!

Wow! This mask smoothed and tightened my skin, and closed up some of my most aggravating open pores. I also noticed that a lot of blackheads were gone, and my dark spots went away. I recommend cutting the recipe in half for a single use-the directions are enough to make 2 or 3 face masks. Thanks again! (BTW, this also tastes delicious-so eat any leftovers.:)

Oatmeal Sucks for My Skin!

I have used the Neutrogena "Clear Pore" Face Wash/Mask AND a homemade mask with oatmeal and egg white. Loved them at first,(hello baby smooth skin!) but then my mother told me she was noticing dark "burnt" areas around my mouth and nose! I have extremely sensitive skin, with acne in my T-zone, so I was probably having a reaction to the oatmeal (again, sensitive). I stopped using both masks-it turned out they were both burning me- and was at a loss for what to do for my complex skin. Thank you so much for sharing these recipes. I think I will try the yogurt one and see how that turns out!

Turmeric & Flour Acne Face Mask

Mix 2 table spoons of all purpose flour with one teaspoon of turmeric powder and pour enough milk into the mixture to turn it to a paste. Apply paste on a clean face and even neck. Leave on for 20 mins or until it starts to harden and wash off in the shower. This should help prevent and reduce acne and soften your skin

Magic!

I suggest to my patients: Mash one avocado, untill smooth. Mix in 3 tablespoons dark, strong brew tea. Tear open tea bag, mix the herbs in too. Add one tablespoon honey. Stir well. Softens face and adds a beautiful radient glow.
