Natural Remedies

I have always loved the idea of home-made remedies. That you can make within the home without having to dip into your pocket and hit the high street. These ideas have been around for ages and i love that you can just pop downstairs and find the majority of the items in your house

Honey Almond Face Mask
I came across this a few months back and was surprised that it actually worked.The honey and almond face mask is basically 2 tablespoons of honey,2 tablespoons of almond oil, egg yolk and a tablespoon of yoghurt.
The mixture must be applied to your face and left on for around 20minutes. Rinse with warm water and remove any leftover residue with a warm damp cloth.
The benefits of the honey and almond face mask? 
it leaves your skin soft and moisturised, the honey leaves the skin with natural nutrients that gives the skin a nice healthy shine and the almond oil also hydrates the skin and penetrates deep down into the pores.
Together eliminates any dry dull skin you may have.


Toothpaste?
Everybody must have heard the secret about toothpaste... Apparently it gets rid of spots? Is this true...
Well i can say it doesn't completely get rid of spots, so if you have acne it is no way a cure. But toothpaste can defiantly help aid the process of getting rid of a spot. Toothpaste is obviously used for cleaning your teeth by 1.removing dirt and 2.killing bacteria. Toothpaste does that just thing as well as drying out oils that can be producing the spot in the first place. 
Placing a small blob on the spot for an hour or over night will reduce the soreness and redness and in time the spot should disappear.

Note- Make sure you are not using any whitening toothpaste as they generally contain bleach of some sort, and your not going to want to put that on your skin now are you? :/


Ginger Mix body scrub
The ginger mix scrub contains 1/4 cup sea salt, 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 finely crushed ginger cloves, and 1/4 cornmeal (you can add drops of rosemary or peppermint- if you like) Mix the salt, ginger and cornmeal together then add warmed oil and mix. Use this in the shower standing and apply to the skin in circular motions. Rinse off with warm water and towel pat dry. The scrub should leave your skin smooth and glowing. After using this don't use heavy amounts of moisturisers or creams on your skin as your pores will be open.






Please tell me what you think about the remedies and if you have tried them
