Natural Skin Care Treatments

Taking care of your skin is so important.  It is the only skin you’ll ever have.  You determine how well it will look now, and in the future.  Therefore you want to be certain that the products and treatments that you are using to care for your skin are the best possible.

This is why it may be advantageous to create your own natural skin care treatments rather than chancing it with the items you buy in the store.  These products are often filled with harsh chemicals and other mysterious ingredients that you would not want to eat or put on your skin if you really understood what they were. When you make your own products, you know exactly what goes into them. You can also save money, and even give away your products as gifts!

Did you know that you have many great items already in your home that can be used to create simple skin care treatments?  Everything from fruit to honey, oatmeal to eggs can be used to creative skin lifting products, moisturizing products, and more natural skin care remedies.

It can be as simple as creating a natural face lift with two egg yolks and a teaspoon of sugar, or a bit more complicated such as this bath milk recipe.
