    Default beauty tips with natural ingredents


    Tropical Citrus Mask
    If you want to avoid lots of clean up, before applying this mask cover your face with cheesecloth (with holes cut out for eyes and mouth).

    Mix together: 1 ripe banana, 1 tsp. Olive oil, 1 drop Orange essential oil.
    Smooth over face and leave on for 15 - 20 minutes.
    Rinse off with tepid water. Smooth on a rich moisturizer.

    Mayan Hair Mask
    Ancient Mayan Inca and Aztec women believed that avocados fed the skin from the inside and outside. Make sure you save the avocado pit, setting it in a place where it can dry out.

    Mix together: ½ ripe avocado, 1 tbsp. olive oil, ½ small banana and 1 egg yolk.
    Gently massage onto hair and scalp and cover with a shower cap.
    Leave on 1 hour and rinse thoroughly with warm water. Shampoo as usual

    Honey Orange Lip Balm
    If you like your lip balm to have a thinner, glossier consistency, use more olive oil. If you like a thicker, creamier feel, use less.

    Heat 2 tbsp. Chopped beeswax in a double boiler until melted. Remove from heat. Slowly pour ⅓ cup olive oil into beeswax and stir to mix.
    Add 1 ½ tbsp. honey and 5 drops Orange essential oil. Stir continuously to mix until cool.
    Pour into a clean container with a lid. Tightly seal

    Avocado & Banana Scrub
    The pit of the avocado needs to be dried for 3 - 5 days before it can be ground for this recipe.

    Grind dried avocado pit until pieces are very fine (placing it in a sealed plastic bag and hammering it will work). Mix with ½ banana and olive oil to make a thick paste.
    Rub gently over skin - do not use too much pressure, as the pit will naturally exfoliate!
    Rinse off in a warm shower.

    For lovely hands always use gloves for washing clothes and utensils
    Soak hands in a bowl of warm water to which 1 tsp of corn starch has been added for 5 minutes daily after finishing the house-hold chores.
    Massage hands once a week with olive oil and a little table salt added to it.
    Remove ingrained dirt from hands with a 10 minute massage of sugar' and butter.
    Glycerine, rose water and lemon juice rubbed on the hands every night during winter months keeps them soft and prevents ugly cracks forming.
    For chapped hands in winters, wash with lukewarm water (before going to bed), apply milk-cream and put on a pair of gloves; wash hands the next morning.
    To remove stains from hands ' rub with a slice of lemon or a raw potato. For nicotine stains, apply lemon juice and leave for 10 minutes before washing.
    A drop of Witch Hazel in the palms is an effective antidose for hands that perspire a lot.
    To keep hands clean and soft, soak 250 grams oatmeal in 11-12 cups water and leave overnight. Strain it through a thin muslin cloth the next morning and add 1 thsp lemon juice and 1 tsp each. of olive oil, rose water, glycerine and diluted ammonia. Bottle and apply on hands 3-4 times daily
