Do It Yourself Facial Is Just A Kitchen Away!

You don't need to go to a salon to get a first- rate beauty treatment or get a best skin care products. You can whip up everything you need in your very own kitchen with these skin care tip. These are perfect for acne skin care, beauty skin care, dry skin care and face skin care. Here’s how:

1. For dry skin. Wash your face with olive oil by pouring a few drops on a cotton ball and gently wiping your face.

2. Fill your largest cooking pot with water and bring to a boil. Add 3 chamomile tea bags and 3 peppermint tea bags. Remove the pot from the stove and find a comfy spot-- you'll need to be able to lean over the pot for at least 10 minutes.

Grab a bath towel and drape it over your head and the pot, forming a tent. Don't get too close to the water, because you don't want to burn yourself.

The steam bath will open your pores and loosen all the dirt and yuckies hiding in them. The next few steps will scrub all of these away.

You might want to set a timer, just to make sure you have steamed a full ten minutes. Also, a shower cap will help keep your hair out of the way. Save the water for step 4

3. For facial care and acne facial and cleanser. Spray your face with your homemade astringent. (Make a solution of lemon juice and water by mixing the juice of 1/2 a lemon with 1/2 cup of water)

4. For facial scrub. Gently scrub your face with the yogurt and sugar scrub. St Ives. Apricot Scrub or any other similar exfoliating scrub works too.
Wash the exfoliant off with warm water.
Dip a washcloth in your left over steaming water. The water should still be warm. Cover your face with washcloth and leave for 5 minutes.
