Hmm... wonder if one could add flavors...

I love facial mists. Problem is, they're often expensive and sometimes have chemicals in them that are drying to your skin. Real Purity has a 6oz mister for $ 13. Evian $ 17. Clinque $ 20. L'Occitane $ 22. I personally find those prices ridiculous, especially when I like to spritz my face upon waking and throughout the day to revitalize and refresh it. So I created my own. It's all natural, easy to make and best of all: cheap! Just get a 6 oz. spray bottle. You can find these usually in the travel supplies section of a grocery store. I first added 10 drops of Spearmint Oil (cools and distresses) and 10 drops of Tea Tree Oil (moisturizes). The Tea Tree Oil I buy also has aloe vera and Vitamin E in it for additional restorative and healing. Then, I add 5 drops of lemon juice and 5 drops of lime juice, as citrus energizes. Then I top it off with 6 oz of mineral water. I use San Pellegrino. So there you have it! Your skin can have a quick, cooling dose of minerals, hydration, and natural goodness any time and you WON'T have to spend a fortune. I hope you enjoy my beauty pins. :) ~ Constance

Breakfast For Your Skin Scrub: Okay, this is the best scrub I've made...I'm not gonna lie. I love it so much, I keep one jar in my bathroom for my face and another on the kitchen counter for my hands. Here's what you do... add 1/2 cup of oats to a food processor. Grind until it's powdery. Add 3/4 cups of brown sugar (dark or light is fine). Mix again. Then add 1/2 cup of jojoba oil, 1/2 cup of sweet almond oil, 1/2 t of vanilla, 1/2 t Vitamin E oil. Mix again. That's it. This scrub smells delicious and will make your skin feel like a teenager all over again. I'm almost 40 and my skin still looks pretty young, so I'm a walking testament that this works! Now, if you want a thicker paste, like in the photo...use less oil. If you want it slightly soupier, use my recipe. I've been making it slightly soupier since my first batch becauseI find it hydrates better and my skin stays silkier longer, even after I rinse the paste off. Please let me know what you think! I appreciate the repins. Have a "beautiful" day! :) ~ Constance

Without a doubt, one of the best things I ever did for my skin was to start making my own scrubs. The stuff at the store is chock full of stuff that's bad for your skin - all sorts of chemicals and alcohol. Yuck. Do your skin a favor... Go out and buy a mason jar. Add coarse sea salt, olive oil, almond oil, and if you can find it - jojoba oil. Use daily. Love your skin again. I add the olive oil and jojoba oil first to the salt and then add as much almond oil as I need to make it smell great. When you get out of the shower, your skin will be smooth, silky and you shouldn't need lotion. In the summer, you can add a little coconut oil for a tropical smell! ~ Constance :)
