Here is a really quick and easy all natural recipe to keep away those pesky bugs. It’s also really good for your skin unlike the store boughten bug spray that contains a multitude of cancer causing ingredients.
Combine in a spray bottle:
* one cups of water
* one cup of witch hazel
* 20 drops of lavendar, eucalyptus or tea tree oil
The essential oils keep the bugs away, while leaving your smelling wonderful.
We’ve all had those days where we wake up, look in the mirror and than try to remember the train that apparently ran us over the night before. Here is a quick fix for reducing redness and puffiness to get you looking glam-tastic again.
* Fill a big bowl with ice cubes and put some aloe juice in it.- You can use fresh aloe or aloe juice you buy at the health food store.
* Leave it for 5 to 10 minutes until it gets really nice and cold.
* Soak a face cloth in it and lay it over your face.
It instantly reduces inflammation taking away any puffiness or swollen look.
*For an added spa feel- cut holes in one of your face clothes and place slices of cucumbers over your eyes.
It’s as simple that!!
