Most of if not all can see the positive affects of eating natural clean food. We try to eliminate artificial chemical and preservatives from our diets. Yet with our skincare we are fine slathering these chemical ridden things on ourselves. I realized that I did not need them a while ago, since then my skin has honestly never been better. I went from having to take prescribed medication for my acne to getting maybe 1 pimple a month. So here are my tips and recipes for natural skin care :)
Jojoba, Baking Soda and Honey
-Do not be afraid to try this if you have oily skin. It can actually make your skin a lot less oily. Think about it, water cannot dissolve oil but oil adheres to oil.
Mix 4 tbsp jojoba oil with 2 tbsp baking soda and 1 tbsp honey . The jojoba oil helps remove excess oil dirt and makeup and moisturizes your skin. The baking soda is a natural exfoliator that will remove the dead skin cells. Honey is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial that helps prevent acne from happening.
Oil Cleansing Method
-This method will take a while to get use to but it honestly makes your skin so clear, soft and glowy. Initially you may break out but after 2-3 weeks your skin will get use to it. Find the combination best for your skin:
- For dry skin – use 1 part castor oil to 9 parts olive or sunflower oil. (This is the ratio I use)
- For normal or combination skin – use 2 parts castor oil to 8 parts olive or sunflower oil.
- For oily skin – use 3 parts castor oil to 7 parts olive or sunflower oil.
Massage into your face until all your makeup (if you wear it) comes off or about a minute. Remove using a warm wash cloth.
Olive Oil, Lemon, Salt or Sugar.
-Mix olive oil and lemon. Add salt if you have oily/combination skin or sugar if you have dry/sensitive skin. Add the sugar or salt until you get a gritty texture. Massage onto face for about a minute.
Tomato Face Scrub
-Tomatoes can be very beneficial for the skin. They contain Vitamin C and Alpha hydroxyl acids that will brighten and soften your skin. Also the contain lycopene which helps protect your skin against free radicals.
Slice the tomato at the top where the stem is. You will be using the stem to hold on to the tomato. Dip it in sugar. Rub the tomato around your face to exfoliate.
Greek Yogurt Mask
Yogurt contains lactic acid which helps exfoliate and smooth skin. It is great to sooth dry and sensitive skin, but is also great on oily skin.
Mix 1/2 cup of greek yogurt with the juice of a lemon and 1 tbsp of honey. Spread on face and leave on for 20 minutes.
-You can add 1 tsp of tumeric powder. This will help give you a glowing look.
-Add 1/4 cup smashed strawberries, they are a natural source of salicylic acid ehich helps cure and prevent acnes.
-Add uncooked all natural oatmeal for dry and sensitive skin.
This helps get rid of all dead skin cells. Mix equal parts lemon and water and apply using a cotton ball or pad. This can sting, do not wash off.
Lavender Oil or Tea tree Oil
Apply directly on face using a cotton ball or pad, do not wash off.
Olive Oil or Jojoba Oil
Olive oil is a great moisturizer and works in the same way as the oil cleansing method. Massage in a small amount onto face, do not rinse off.
Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes
(Makes 3 good size pancakes)
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 scoop vanilla casein protein powder (I use optimum nutrition)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (adjust according to preference)
- 3 egg whites
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened carob chips
- Non-stick cooking spray
- Optional: 8 drops english toffee liquid stevia
- Optional: Pancake syrup (I use Walden Farm’s calorie free syrup)
Use a blender to blend all ingredients except for the carob chips, syrup, and non-stick cooking spray together. You can adjust the almond milk if you prefer a thicker batter.
Spray your pan with the cooking spray and spread a few tablespoons of your batter onto the pan. Drop some carob chips on top of your pancake and then cover the pan with a lid.
Cook one side on medium heat for 3 minutes then flip and cook for another minute.
Serve on a plate with a few tablespoons of syrup or even some peanut butter (for some healthy fats).
Having these feels like such a treat, but don’t worry they’re definitely clean! If I don’t have time in the morning, sometimes I’ll make them the night before and just toast them in the morning. They’re perfect for pre- or post- workout or just whenever :)
