Homemade Skin Treatments


Sorry I was MIA last week. I got a nasty cold that just put me out of commission all week/weekend. I'm finally starting to feel better which means I'm back to blogging. First up this week is a new favorite homemade treatment. My boss and I were talking about how rough this winter has been on our skin and she said that she found this great homemade scrub recipe in Real Simple. And it is real simple - sugar and olive oil - that's it! I used a container from a scrub I had finished put in a bunch of sugar and then added olive oil till it was all absorbed. It took all of two minutes. I used it this weekend and what a difference in my skin. It was so soft. I love that it's all natural and costs pennies compared to what you spend in the store. Thanks Jenn for the recommendation!

What are some of your favorite at home treatments?

I use sea salt as a body scrub. I probably wouldn't try this scrub w/the olive oil on my face because of my skin type, but next time I'll try mixing some oil w/my sea salt.

One of the best natural treatments for so many things is apple cider vinegar. It really helped w/cold sores I had this season.
