We often forget the skin and how important it is to not neglect it! Try these for those occasional breakouts! Honey is my favorite both as a face wash & for pimples:) I also like to steep green bags in hot water & use them on those painful pimples beneath the skin;)

Egg yolks won't only make your hair softer, shinier, and healthier, but it helps you to grow it out long as well. Mix 2 egg yolks with 2 tbsp of olive oil, dilute the mixture by adding a cup of water, and then slowly and thoroughly massage this mask into your scalp.

Best home made body wash recipe I've found. (It's suppose to be ideal for Eczema) Update 3/15/12: I just finished making my first batch & I absolutely love it. It smells really great ( I used a lavender essential oil) & after washing my hands with it I quickly noticed how clean, soft & smooth they felt. I can't wait to try it on my son's eczema prone skin. I am going to have to make this my body wash as well.

Doctor Oz said that this Flawless Skin Home Remedy is a great way to clear your complexion. The aspirin has salicylic acid which helps to remove acne and pimples since it is like a chemical peel.

Spa day ~~ once a week for 20 minutes, sit in a hot bath that contains a handful of Epsom salts, 10 drops of lavender essential oil, and a half cup of baking soda. This combo draws out toxins, lowers stress-related hormones, and balances your pH levels. (do not apply lotion to skin after detoxing)
1. Tie all of your hair back away from the facial area 2. Steam face to open your pores (or take a hot shower) 3. On clean skin, apply your mixture of honey and lemon all over 4.

Heat some olive oil to luke warm and massage your scalp with it.. tie it in a braid. After 2 hours mix an egg white, curd, honey & lemon juice in a bowl, put a towel across your shoulders and apply the mixture on your scalp followed by the rest of your hair. Once done applying tie it up in a bun and wait till it dries, then wash it out - you will be left with beautiful shiny hair, healthier ends & also gets rid of dandruff!
