Ethnic BeautiesTransitioning Into Fall Skin
Say it ain't so! Yep, is the middle of summer and we're already being shown Fall merchandise. So how do you use this information and transition your skin from Summer's hot temperatures into Fall's cooling temps? Get ahead of the game and use beauty products that contain some of Mother Nature's most beautiful nuts and oils. They'll help you transition your skin by removing those dead skin cells from sunburn and just plain old neglect.
While I donít advocate the use of nuts on your skin unless they're finely ground into a powder, that doesn't mean that you can't benefit from them and their oils. Why don't I like nuts on your skin? It's simple actually, products with nuts aren't always fine or smooth enough to use on your skin and most of us have a tendency to rub too hard and break the skin causing scarring and discoloration. Nut oils and powders on the other hand offer a wide range of options in beauty products and recipes. For example, almond oil and walnut oils make great skin and hair conditioners.
Have you ever taken an Almond Milk Bath? Here's a recipe for you:
1 cup of almond milk - The milk provides rich natural fats and oils that softens dry and sensitive skin.
2 table spoons of pure honey - Honey is a natural humectant. It locks the moisture into your skin.
4-5 drops of essential oil - You can use any of your favorites. Sweet Orange, Lemon grass, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary and Tea Tree, it all depends on the mood you seek.
Mix all the ingredients together, then pour into a warm bath as you fill your tub. Relax for 15-20 minutes.
If you'd like to give yourself a break from your current cleanser, you can always try a Lavender Almond Facial Cleanser.
1 tablespoon of Lavender Yogurt
1 table spoon almond milk.
1 teaspoon dried lavender
1 drop of essential oil
Mix everything together, then spread on your face and neck, let sit for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and follow up with a cool water rinse.
Using Nuts for Lip Exfoliation
We often forget our lips when it comes to exfoliation, that's one of the reasons why you'll see that extra skin causing them to chap as the weather gets cooler. So here's a recipe for a lip scrub using walnuts.
1 cup finely ground walnuts (into a powder is best)
1 teaspoon of honey
2 teaspoons of brown sugar
Mix them together until you have a smooth paste. Gently massage a small amount of the scrub into your lips using your fingertips. Rinse well with warm water and follow up with a lip balm or natural oil
You can see that the use of nuts and their oils can be very beneficial to you in your skin care regimen. Gear up for Fall by starting early in prepping your skin for the cooler temperatures. A special thanks to Janice Carter, author of Natural Beauty at Home for the recipes.
That's it for this week. As always ...
