Blueberry Facial Time

I tried this facial a week ago and it only took a few blueberries and my favorite facial paintbrush to apply. I haven’t read much on blueberry being used in skin products but given it’s enormous antioxidant content I’m sure it’s great for the body both inside and outside. For $2.50 I had a healthy snack for the baby and I and my own homemade gel peel mask chock full of benefits. It hardens after about 5 minutes and easily washes off. One of the less messy experiments this year.

Mash and apply or if you really want a hero of a facial product add some plain yogurt to blender with blueberries and then apply to the face and neck for 20 minutes. Absolutely amazing! I will never buy over the counter scrubs, peels, lotions or face washes ever again. It’s just too easy and too good for your skin and way to economical to go back to factory made products, where most are Made in China. Protect your children’s skin and use homemade sugar scrubs and coconut oil and homemade DIY food masks, they’ll love it and have fun applying all the good, fresh ingredients.

The Facial

Finally finished my NoAge Face Serum. Looks lovely, au naturale. Chock full of all B vitamins so makes for a slightly yellow color, glycerin which my face adores after a pregnancy and once T zone oily now dry, and drier. After I put about every single oil from the supermarket on my body I’ve discovered the mix that the face loves and the one the body eats up like slick lipid heaven. Will post final product and now need to find natural coloring agent to prevent it looking like pee serum (ew).
