Affordable Natural Wrinkle Treatments

12:35 AM Posted by Piera Jolly


There are so many different types of wrinkle creams and anti-aging treatments in the marketplace. Everyone wants better skin, but most of the wrinkle creams are very expensive. The outrageous prices are usually because you are paying for the brand name. If you do not have the budget to buy the "latest" cream or treatment or if you prefer natural products, here are some inexpensive homemade wrinkle fighters.

How to Cure Wrinkles with Natural Treatments

Mix 1 teaspoon of raspberry juice with one teaspoon of orange juice. Add one teaspoon of olive oil, whipped egg yolk and 2 tablespoons of grind oatmeal. Wait for 20 minutes and smear on face. Wait until it gets dry and wash off with warm water.

Grind an onion and Rub on face to loose the wrinkles.

Mix 2 tablespoons of Vodka with 1 tablespoon of fennel seeds and half a teaspoon of honey. Boil and then refrigerate for 3 days. Apply on face with a cotton ball and wash off with warm water.

Whip the egg white and put on face wrinkles until it drys and then wash with cool water.

Pamper Yourself without Breaking the Bank

12:12 AM Posted by Piera Jolly


There is nothing like going to the spa and getting yourself pampered. However, with a little preparation, it is possible to pamper yourself at home. Granted, it is not the spa, but it is MUCH cheaper and if done right, it will be relaxing. The key is to really set aside time for yourself. Take a bath. Listen to relaxing music. If you have kids, send them away to the grandparents or have your husband or partner take them out for a special day together.

Body Scrub

Ingredients:
2 cups fine sea salt
4 cups grapeseed, apricot, or almond oil


Directions:

(1). In a glass jar, combine the ingredients and stir to blend.
(2). Standing in the bathtub or shower, wet your body and then scoop some of the mixture into your hand. Massage into your skin using a circular motion, beginning at your feet and working your way up.
(3). Rinse thoroughly with warm water. An oily residue may remain on your skin, so if your skin is naturally dry, allow it to stay. If your skin is naturally oily, remove the residue with a gentle soap, then pat dry.


Invigorating Coffee Scrub

Ingredients:
3 T Coffee grounds (organic-caffeinated)
1 T Salt (optional)

To Make: Brew a fresh pot of coffee. Enjoy a cup, if you like. Put grounds (and salt) in a small bowl. Use grounds within 20 minutes of brewing before oxidation occurs.
To Use: Scrub mixture over entire body while in the shower. Rinse. Tone. Moisturize.

Yogurt Body Mask

Ingredients:

1/4 Cup Yogurt
3 T Honey
3 T Puréed Pumpkin OR
3 T Puréed Carrots

To Make: Use canned (nothing added), or slightly cooked pumpkin or carrots. Drain, and purée in a blender. Pour into a bowl with the yogurt and honey.
To Use: Draw a warm bath. Lather your face and body with the yogurt mask. Sink into a warm bath and soak for 10-20 minutes. Rinse in the shower, tone, and apply a light moisturizer.

Lavender & Honey Milk Bath

Ingredients:
3 T dried Lavender flowers*
1 1/2 cups whole mild, cream, or combination
1/3 cup Honey

Directions:
Process lavender flowers in a blender until they become a powder, turning off the blender and scraping down the sides as necessary. Whisk together lavender powder, milk and honey in a glass bowl, then pour into a jar. Before each use, shake the jar and pour half of the mixture into the bath. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Makes enough for 2 baths.

Black Friday UPDATE!

12:12 AM Posted by Piera Jolly


Black Friday is almost here-only 4 more days! In order to plan, you have to be able to see the ads before Thanksgiving night. Many new ads have been posted on the internet.

My suggestion is to visit the sites listed below and make your game plan for the day. Write down what you want to buy, where it is located, and what time the store opens. Then, prioritize. What are the must-buy items on your list. Make sure to get to those places early. Most of the great buys are limited in quantity. So, get there early!
