Create A Yummy Complexion & Soft Hands

Sometimes the simplest ingredients from your kitchen can be used to make the nicest feeling, younger looking skin. For instance, the following ingredients can be used to create a great facial treatment that will leave your skin smooth and soft. Mix thoroughly 1/2 cup of baking cocoa powder with 3 Tablespoons of heavy whipping cream, 1/4 cup of raw honey, 8 drops of essential oil of English Lavender and 2 tablespoons old fashion rolled oats that have been finely crushed. Gently rinse face with warm, not hot, water and then apply mixture evenly to face. Lie back and relax for 10 to 15 minutes and then gently wash off with warm water and soft cloth.

Next concentrate on your hands; mix 1/2 cup of raw, granulated sugar with 1/4 of sea salt, 5-6 drops of English Lavender and 1 tablespoon of good, extra virgin olive oil. Cover hands with mixture and gently massage into each hand making sure to involve the wrists. Let stand on hands for 5-6 minutes and then rinse off under warm, running water. This will help to soften and deep clean the skin and nails.

What a fun activity for a girls night in!
