food in the shower!

I'm getting really tired of having tired skin.
I looked in the mirror today and my pores are huge and my skin is dry.

But luckily, I found a new hobby.
Homemade hair, face, + body masks!
Save money on expensive products by using inexpensive produce.

The first experiment went well!
My skin is so happy!

This was tonight's menu--

Hair and Face

1 egg -short hair; 2 eggs-long hair
(no yolk just whites)

1 avocado (mashed up)

mix the two togehter (not the most attractive looking mixture)
then, rub into skin and hair - the egg whites will become stiff.
leave the mixture on for about 30 min or so.
Rinse normally.

Egg whites will shrink your pores and help hair with shine.
Avocado is best for its natural oils. Very nutritious with vitamin E for skin as well as moisturizing.

Body Scrub

For dry itchy wintery skin- Try this sugar scrub.

1 cup of sugar (brown or white)
1/2 of a Lemon
2 tablespoons of olive oil or sesame oil
5 tablespoons of honey

Mix together in a small bowl.
Apply in the shower and scrub gently to exfoliate.

Sugar is used for exfoliation-
but it is very gentle and melts away with water so you can control your texture.
Lemon is for deep cleaning of the pores. Removes dirt and oil.
Olive/Sesame Oil is great for moisturizing the skin.
Honey works like a conditioner, and the waxy consistency helps protect skin.

Velvety skin for everyone!!
