Natural Treatments for Face & Body

    I have skin allergies and can't seem to use fancy soaps. Thank goodness for Octagon soap! It gets the job done without all the dryness and itching! It is hard to find though.
    I recently began buying Dr. Bonner's soaps again after a lapse of many years and love it. It looks expensive when you see it on the shelf but I find it's extremely concentrated. I use it as an everyday body wash diluted two parts soap to one part water; one little squeeze on a bath poof provides lots of luxurious suds.

    If you go online, you'll find a hundred different ways people use Dr. Bonner's. I personally have found that, full strength, it's the ONLY thing that gets my pesky smooth cooktop clean. Go figure: gentle enough to wash dry skin but somehow strong enough to get off cooked-on gunk.

    My skin feels dry and I'm glad I can make my own.
  • I love seeing all these homemade facial treatments made with natural products. About 12 years ago i got really into making all my own hair,skin,body products using all natual unscented base products and adding my own selection of essental ouls and other stuff to them. I created so many I wrote the best ones down into a small notebook. A few years ago I came across the notebook which I had forgotten all about. I see some of the combinations of ingerdients I used then now being touted by celebrities/televsion as the "newest skin treatment" fad and it makes me laugh...Many of us have been using a lot of those products for numerous years, and our mothers, and grandmothers before us. I guess all that fame & money makes some peoples brains stop working!!!!
  • My college A&P Professor when I was in nursing school told us that our skin cells are dead on the outside and putting expensive creams and lotions on them wouldn't do anything but waste our money. I've never forgotten that. LOL

    Thank you for these "recipes" I love using natural kind of skin care.
  • How fantastic to find these recipes for making cleansers and moisturizers.
  • I have eczema and I am hoping that some of these ideas will work for me. I plan on checking with the dermatologist on my next visit.
  • I love these natural ideas... I'm on SSA, so my budget doesn't include a lot of expensive skin care products, but I do get a food allowance, and feeding my skin from the outside as well as the inside does help! LOL Great ideas!

    Another really great moisturizing mask idea is avocado... it can be used by itself, mashed and applied to clean skin, or you can add yogurt, and/or a tsp of lemon, and if you need an exfoliating agent, add a tablespoon of ground oatmeal... gently massage it over your face, let it set for five minutes and then wipe it off and rinse... don't worry if plain avocado turns brown, that's what it does when it combines with oxygen. It's not a bad thing...besides, any way you do it, it feels wonderful!

    For a substitute for chammomile you could try green tea. as for cinnamon, I had never heard of that, i have a terrible time with black heads especially on my nose, cheeks and chin. Though I also heard that cinnamon can irritate and even burn the skin if in it's oil form.
