Moisturizing Rose Almond Lotion

Ingredients: 

  • 600 ml almond oil

  • A bit of beeswax

  • 500 ml rosewater (in which rose petals have been added for three days and strained out)

  • Essence of rose

Preparation: Pour the oil and the beeswax into a water bath or a double boiler so there is uniform heat all around the container. After heating for a few minutes, take the container out and add rosewater slowly, beating the mixture continuously. As the mixture gets cool, add the essence of rose, a drop at a time, if desired. Cool the creamy lotion after pouring it into a container.

Usage: This is an excellent rose cold cream that can be used to remove dirt and excess makeup. You can also pat the cream onto your face at night to wake up to a sweet smelling glow. This mixture is very good for moisturizing, and to stimulate the skin tissues. 

Honey and Rose Facial

Ingredients: 

  • 2 tbsp honey

  • 2 tbsp sweet almond oil

  • 5 drops of rose oil

Preparation: Mix the honey, almond oil, and rose oil in a bowl.

Usage: Massage onto clean face and neck with fingertips. Relax for 15 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water. Gently pat dry to reveal a fresh, soft complexion. Sweet almond oil, which is light and easily absorbed, softens and nourishes the skin. And honey, as a natural humectant, moisturizes, leaving even tired skin incredibly smooth. 

Sweet Strawberry Exfoliant

Ingredients: 

  • 10 strawberries

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 tbsp coarse salt

Preparation: Add all the ingredients into a bowl and crush the strawberries and let the mixture blend together.

Usage: Massage the mixture onto your hands and feet for a few minutes. After that, rinse and pat dry. Strawberries contain a natural fruit acid that helps in better exfoliation.

Olive oil can also be used as an eye makeup remover and to shave your legs since it's very moisturizing. So if you run out of shaving cream, just reach into your kitchen cabinet for a little bit of olive oil ..oil of any kind (vegetable, olive, peanut, etc) is a great natural moisturizer for super dry skin
