Forget you, Estee Lauder. My best skin comes from my kitchen.

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

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

I'm not big into getting my nails done. Really not into things that sparkle. But for some reason, I LOVE this manicure. Just love it.

You may not know it from my picture on here, but my hair's naturally curly. I run a flat iron through it several times a week to keep it straight. I ride around in my topless Jeep in the summer and expose it to heavily polluted PA air, heavy winds and it gets knotted. I'm a vegetarian who sometimes goes on fruit binges and doesn't always get enough protein. In short, I should be bald. But here's a kick-ass deep conditioner I make that really loves my hair, and my hair loves it back. Mash a ripe avocado until smooth, add a container of plain greek yogurt (which is loaded with protein; I use Chobani) and a half cup of coconut milk. After shampooing your hair, comb this goodness through your hair (resist temptation to eat it) and leave it on for about 20 minutes. I usually just step out of shower and put on a shower cap and read a chapter or two during this process. Then rinse out with shampoo. You can also make this hair masque without the yogurt. If you do, just pare back the coconut milk to a quarter cup. ~ Constance

    Awesome! Thank you! I recently got a shower filter to filter out the Chlorine in my hair and that works SO well too! Seriously.

If you like my body scrub recipe, you'll love my concoctions for conditioning your hair. :) Forget expensive conditioners which are laden with chemicals and alcohol which only dry out your hair even more. You can get your best hair ever just by visiting your kitchen! For a simple, hydrating conditioner, you will need two things: eggs and olive oil. Eggs are a rich source of protein, which is what makes it the best conditioner for damaged hair, as hair is nothing but protein. Simply break/separate 2 eggs and beat the hell out of the yolk until it becomes light yellow and frothy. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to and beat it senseless again until it's mixed well. Apply mixture to hair. Leave on for 20 minutes, or until it dries out. Once dry, wash it out with warm water and a mild shampoo. Pat dry. (Remind me to post shampoo recipes too) :) ~ Constance

    From the description it says you use the yolk and oil... Do you still use the egg whites? I just sad beat yolks and add oil.

    I used olive oil, along with an electric deep conditioning cap, years ago when trying to grow my hair long. You can definitely tell a difference right away! And if you stick with it you will notice a difference in strength and growth!

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 :)
