I’m having a Saturday night in. Sad, I know but I’m determined to enjoy my night regardless. Whilst many of you are out painting the town red, I’m elbow deep in peanut butter whilst wearing a t-shirt that reads “and so the lion fell in love with the lamb”. Twilight nerding aside this mask is really delicious and I only used 3 ingredients from my kitchen. It left my skin silky smooth.
All you need:
- 40g crunchy peanut butter
- 20g finely ground sea salt
- 25ml almond oil (use olive oil instead if you don’t have any)
I mixed the peanut butter with the sea salt. Then I stirred in the almond oil. I rubbed it on damp skin and massaged well.
Whether you’re out on the town or curled up on front of the tv I hope you have a spectacular night.
This recipe is a two for the price of one deal. It’s a mask and a scrub. super easy to make and it’s for most skin types. (People with skin conditions probably need to use products designed for their skin condition. Post on it’s way!)
This mask/ scrub is soft and hydrating. All you need:
This is a really nourishing mask for combination, oily or normal skin. I always keep an aloe plant in the house for burns. As you probably already know, I’m extremely accident prone. If you have a plant just split one of the leaves and scrape out some juice. Otherwise you can pick up a bottle of the pure stuff from your local heath shop.
I am posting my first natural beauty recipe. This one is great for dry, dehydrated, sensitive or mature skin.It’s nourishing and moisturising. It takes 5 minutes to make and is so much cheaper than buying a mask. Best of all, it has no harsh chemicals and preservatives.
This recipe makes one treatment.
- 1 tbsp heavy cream
- Half of a very ripe, small, peeled, peach
Use a pestle and mortar or a bowl and fork tomash the peach, combine cream and smooth.
Smooth mixture on to your face and neck lie down and leave for 30 minutes. Because of the creamy consistency use a towel on your hair in case it drips. Rinse with a warm cloth (muslin is best if you have one but an ordinary face cloth will be fine)
Enjoy gorgeous skin!
I will post mask recipes for other skin types soon.
