Everyone desires a glowing complexion. Unfortunately, blemishes, breakouts, clogged pores, dullness, dryness or roughened texture are common concerns. Environmental pollutants further contribute to the problems that most face in their quest for attractive skin. Your face is usually the first feature that others see and the one that they are most likely to remember, so making a good impression is important.
Things You'll Need
- Sunflower seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Food processor
- Dried oats
Grind one tbsp. of almonds and one tsp. of each of the seeds in a food processor until you obtain a coarse, powdery texture. Place the powder in a bowl and add one-eighth of a cup of dried oats, one tbsp. of honey and two tbsp. of mayonnaise. Mix well.
Apply the resulting cream to your face in a thin layer and allow it to remain on your face for seven minutes. Your body's natural temperature will dissolve the mayonnaise and allow the nutrients in the ingredients to seep into your pores.
Use your fingertips to gently massage your face in a rotating motion for three minutes. Old skin cells, embedded dirt, clogging oils and accumulated debris will detach themselves from your face and slough off easily.
Rinse your face with plain warm water and cleanse your face as you normally would. Pat your skin dry with a clean cloth. Your skin will have a healthy glow due to improved circulation, feel smoother, and your pores will be clean and toned. In sixty days or less, your face will look healthy and completely refreshed.
Tips & Warnings
- Always begin with clean hands and fingernails when making and applying this cream. Try not to omit any ingredient when making this facial glow cream. Each component of this cream contributes to healthy skin. All of these ingredients have nourishing vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. The almonds, seeds and oats exfoliate and the honey is antibacterial. The ingredients in the mayonnaise also play their part. The vinegar extracts toxins, rebalances pH levels and deep cleans, while the lemon juice emulsifies embedded oil and then tones pores to eliminate blemishes. It is best to make a fresh batch of this facial glow cream for each use; however, you may keep small amounts of the leftovers up to three days if refrigerated in a closed container. For best results, use this cream once daily.
- The vinegar in the mayonnaise is one of the key active components that heal, detoxify and tone your skin. Unfortunately, some people find that the acidity of the vinegar causes their eyes to water. You can combat this by applying a thin layer of petroleum jelly around your eyes and/or putting soothing eye drops in your eyes before you begin. Close your eyes and sit quietly during application in a well-ventilated area. Sitting near a small fan is helpful. The smell of the vinegar quickly dissipates from your skin upon rinsing and washing your face.
