Baking soda and orange juice mask. This combo gets rid of blackheads and is great for treating hormonal breakouts. The baking soda exfoliates and fights acne while the acid in the orange juice tightens pores and the vitamin C brightens. Here are her instructions: 1. Mix 1 tbsp real orange juice with 1 tbsp baking soda (I like to use a shot glass – ha!) 2. Spread a thin layer on face. (There should be enough for two applications, or one if you put it on your neck and décolletage, too, which I do.) 3. Leave on for 20 minutes 4. Dampen finger tips and scrub mask in circular motions for extra exfoliation 5. Rinse The mask will tingle and itch a little so it’s good too have a distraction - paint your nails, watch TV, but whatever you do, don’t talk. As the paste dries, any facial movements will cause it to flake off. Your skin will be pink afterwards (see photo), like as you just peeled off a few layers. When I am done I use a really gentle toner and then slather on some lotion.

- #DIY #Natural #Organic #AdditiveFree #Homemade #Easy #Beauty #Recipes for #Summer | • Face: 1. I recommend using a mask once a week to revitalize the skin. My favorite involves combining 1 #egg #yolk, 1 tablespoon of #honey, 1 tablespoon of plain #yogurt and 1/2 #teaspoon of #extra #virgin #olive #oil. Just leave the mixture on your face for 10 minutes and rinse it off. 2. For oily or #acne-prone skin, try a mask that will help soothe the skin. Take one #ripe #banana and blend it with 1 tablespoon of #honey and 1 tablespoon of #lemon juice. Leave on for 15 minutes. 3. If you have #dry #skin, mix half of a mashed #avocado with 1/4 cup of #honey for a mask that will add tons of moisture to your face. Leave on for 10 minutes. 4. Sliced #strawberries, #grapes and #cucumbers act as natural #toners to tighten skin and shrink #pores. Just rub the slices over your skin after cleansing. #Oily skin? Try sliced #lemons to reduce shine. 5. For a simple #exfoliator, blend together 3 tablespoons of extra virgin #olive #oil, 2 tablespoons of #honey and 1/2 cup of #sugar. This is a perfect #scrub for the face because it gets rid of dead skin cells and re-hydrates the skin at the same time. You should use this 1 to 3 times a week depending on how sensitive your skin is. | • Body: 1. Have some #milk in your fridge that’s about to expire? Add it to a #bath along with a few drops of extra virgin #olive #oil. Milk is a natural moisturizer that can do wonders for your skin and the olive oil will make skin super soft. You can also add the milk/olive oil combo in a bowl with warm water to soak your hands or feet before giving yourself a DIY manicure or pedicure. 2. #Exfoliating is important, especially if you want to try a self-tanner this summer. You can use the same sugar scrub from above on your whole body, but if you want something different try a #salt #scrub. Combine 1 cup of salt with 1 cup of extra virgin #olive #oil. Add a few drops of an #essential #oil in your favorite scent or get creative by adding the zest of an #orange or #lemon for a fresh and citrus-infused smell. 3. Although we’re big advocates of sunscreen here at CF, sometimes the inevitable happens: the dreaded #sunburn. While aloe gels and lotions can be a lifesaver, they’re are more natural ways to relieve a sunburn. You could buy the real deal - an aloe plant - or add a tablespoon of #baking #soda into a quart of #cool #water. If you want to try the latter, just use a washcloth to apply it to the sunburned areas. Also, you can help #prevent #peeling by applying #vinegar to the skin. | • Hair: 1. For an easy and natural #deep #conditioner, blend 1/4 cup of plain #yogurt, 1/4 cup of #mayonnaise and the whites from one #egg. Cover your hair with the mixture (run a wide tooth comb through your hair to make sure it’s evenly dispersed) and leave in for 30 minutes before rinsing it out. This will reverse dry and damaged hair. 2. Get rid of #product #build-up by mixing a small amount of #baking #soda in with your #shampoo. This will clarify your hair and can make it more manageable over time. 3. Want to #lighten up your #hair but don’t have the money for highlights? Dilute 1/2 cup of fresh #lemon #juice with 1/4 cup of #water. Put the mixture in your hair and let it sit for 30 minutes to an hour. If you can, sit outside in the sun to help lighten the hair - but don’t forget the SPF! Are #red #tones more your style? Do the same thing, but use #apple #cider #vinegar instead of lemon juice.
