Cucumbers

Cucumbers

Seriously though, cucumbers. They're basically a wonder food, because they are good between bread AND on your face. Next time you're at the store, buy two...or three....well, you should probably get four.

*Cucumbers are also very beneficial for oily skin due to their cooling, astringent, and soothing properties. Also, the high vitamin and mineral content, including vitamins A and E, magnesium, and potassium, are good for oily skin.
Cut a fresh organic cucumber into thick slices, and rub them thoroughly on your face. Leave it on overnight and rinse with warm water in the morning. Do this daily before going to bed.
Alternatively, mix one-half teaspoon each of cucumber juice and lime juice. Apply this mixture to your skin, let it dry, and then wash it off with warm water. Do this daily. This remedy can also be used to lighten freckles and reduce sunburn *

Homemade Facial Scrub

Homemade Facial Scrub

Facial scrub is always a yes, especially when it's gentle and handmade. Scrub and dub dub, you can even use it in the tub (if you clean it after).

Herbal Facial Scrub
Ingredients:
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup cornmeal
1/3 cup dried herbs (such as calendula, lavender, peppermint, rose petals, or a mixture of herbs)
Almonds, clay, or sugar (optional; use alone or in combination to total 1 tablespoon)
Directions:
In a clean coffee grinder, combine the oatmeal, cornmeal, herbs, and almonds, clay, or sugar, if using. Grind the mixture to a fine powder. (You could also use a mortar and pestle.)
To use, place some of the mixture in the palm of your hand. Add enough water to make a paste. Apply the mixture evenly over your face, avoiding your eyes. Massage the scrub gently into your skin, using circular motions. Rinse thoroughly.
Store the scrub in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry location for up to 3 months.
