Homemade feet remedies
For smooth skin and beautiful feet here is an easy feet wash.
Ingredients: 1 cup of lemon juice, cinnamon (can be replaced with any other scent, spice, perfume or flower petals such as roses), 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/4 cup of milk and warm water.
Preparation: Add all the ingredients to a desired amount of warm water, put it in a tub where you can soak your feet. Leave it there for a few minutes. When you are done you can dry your feet and rinse then with clear water and a mild soap.
You’ll notice that after a few weeks of doing this wash your skin will be very smooth.
Homemade nails remedies
If you want to whiten your nails, here’s a formula you can try:
Remedy 1: Use common whitening toothpaste. Scrub your nails with Pearl Drops. This will take away any stains and shine up your nails.
Remedy 2: Soak your nails in water with lemon juice or lemon slices. The lemon should act as an astringent and will strip away stains. Once the hands are dry, you need to put a couple of coats of a clear topcoat and that should be enough for white nails.
Homemade skin remedies
For a good deep cleansing treatment you should try giving your face a home sauna. This treatment should be especially useful for congested skin.
Ingredients: A bowl with near boiling water and four drops of essential oil according to your skin type
Normal: mandarin and lavender
Oily: lemon and eucalyptus
Dry: rose and camomile
Preparation: Mix all the essential oil with the near boiling water, place a towel over your head and hold it over the bowl from a distance of about 30 cm, keep it like this for about two minutes. This treatment should open the pores and prepare your face for a facial mask (check my previous posts about homemade facial masks).
Caution: You should not use this face sauna if you have sensitive skin, are pregnant of suffer from asthma.
I hope you enjoy this little easy home made treats that are ideal for a low budget or for very busy house wives that don’t have that much time to go to a salon or spa.
