How To Benefit From Organic Exfoliation
There are a great number of exfoliates in many of the foods you eat. These can be canned or preserved, but they lose potency through the processes, much like they lose nutrients. By making the following recipes to enhance your organic skin care, you are adding the freshest possible exfoliates to your routine, which will give your skin an incredible look and feel. Remember to buy only organic ingredients for these recipes because you do not need your skin absorbing toxins from chemical pesticides and chemical fertilizers. That defeats the purpose! Blemish Be Gone This is a quick tip that will not only exfoliate, but will help fight blackheads Slice one whole lemon. Rub one slice on any areas which are giving you trouble with blackheads (usually around and on the nose).
The other slices should be used on dry body skin to exfoliate (soles, hands, elbows, knees). Then Shower! Delete that Dry Skin The following recipe can be mixed and stored in the refrigerator for a week to ten days. It can be used on the face or your entire body (of course, stay away from eyes and other sensitive areas). Use a Mason jar for storage. Blend ingredients, starting with the mango and adding them in the following order: mango, water, vinegar, honey and cornmeal.
Ingredients 2 tablespoons of organic honey 2 teaspoons organic cider vinegar 2 ripe organic mangos (peeled) 2 cups distilled water ½ cup organic cornmeal Enzymatic Mask This mask is NOT for people with sensitive skin. Because the natural chemicals in these fruit work together upon mixing, you should mix this immediately before use. Do not attempt to store as it will not do much good for your skin after storing.
Mix the juice from the lemon together with both the mashed papaya and peach. Prepare your skin by laying a warm washcloth over it for a minute or so, remove the washcloth and apply the mixture immediately, leaving for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
Repeat procedure on other areas (knees, elbows, feet, hands). Ingredients ½ ripe organic lemon 1 ripe organic papaya, peeled, de-seeded, and mashed ½ ripe organic peach, peeled, de-seeded, and mashed Herbal Heaven Body Scrub For this scrub, you can mix all of the dry ingredients and store in an airtight container (Mason jars are great). When you want to use some, just mix a tablespoon with your favorite organic moisturizer or milk lotion. You want just enough of the moisturizer or lotion to make a nice paste.
Massage over your face for about 5 minutes, let sit for five minutes and rinse with warm water. Ingredients 1cup Coarsely ground organic oat flour ½ cup Organic powdered comfrey leaves 1 cup Organic French green clay ¼ cup Organic powdered lavender buds ¼ cup Organic powdered lemongrass 1 cup Organic powdered rose petals Juicy Juice Tonic This exfoliating tonic is a great revival for tired skin. You will need a juicer and absorbent cotton for this recipe; the cotton can be strips of thick t-shirt or fleece if you like (just make sure it is white or a very light color). Store any unused juice in the refrigerator and use within 2 weeks. Juice the fruits and soak the cotton strips in the juice.
Place the strips across your face while you take a 10 to 15 minute rest, then shower as usual. To revive tired skin, you will need: 2 ripe apples 4 ripe pears Orange Citrus Exfoliating Scrub The pleasant citrus scent along with the exfoliating and moisturizing properties of this scrub make it very popular. Mix the cornmeal with enough moisturizer to make a nice paste, stir in your orange essential oil. This scrub can be used over the entire body, but should not be stored any longer than your moisturizer should be stored. Many organic moisturizers must be stored in the refrigerator; it this is the case with yours, then you should also store this mixture in the refrigerator.

Just grab your sugar bowl and your organic facial cleanser; you have the ingredients for your treatment!
