Blueberry Facial Time


English: (Photo credit: Wikipedia)



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.

Moringa the Tree

There’s a beautiful tree that grows called Moringa. After doing some research I was amazed at is multiple uses, virtually every part of the tree can or is used for medicinal purposes. I’m hoping to see more people use this medicinal plant as it’s properties from root, to bark, to leaf, and seed are endless. If any reader has  been using it or enjoying it’s health benefits, please comment or send a message! There’s a great video on Moringa on YouTube, check it out. It’s sold as a powder in the states for smoothies or shakes. Hoping to see more of this super-plant in the near future! Here’s to health!
