If you desperately desire to look younger or are simply looking to rejuvenate your skin, here are a few of our favorite  healthy and natural skin care recipes that will keep you from having to run to the store:

 

  • For the first recipe, you will need ¼ cup almond oil, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 2 tablespoons beeswax, ½ teaspoon vitamin E oil and 1 tablespoon shea butter. Put these ingredients in jar. Then, place the jar in a simmering pot of water until all of the ingredients have melted. The almond oil has softening properties, the virgin coconut oil and vitamin E are included for their antioxidants, and beeswax and shea butter are GREAT anti inflammatories. You’ll see the effects this product has on your skin in no time!1

  • The second recipe we have to share with you is a bit more simple. Its only ingredient: honey! After you’ve cleansed your face, rub a tablespoon of honey all over it. After letting it sit for ten minutes, rinse it off with warm water. This will draw out skin impurities!2

  • This recipe is incredibly simple as well! Brew a cup of white tea on medium heat. When the tea is warm, place a face cloth into it and then press the cloth over your eyes. This will help open up pores and deflate the bags under your eyes.

  • For our last recipe, you will need 1 tablespoons of cocoa butter, ½ tablespoon of dark organic honey, 2 drops of sesame oil and 2 drops of apricot oil. Mix these ingredients together until a nice, creamy texture is achieved and say goodbye to wrinkles!3
