Visits to the salon for a weekly facial may not be practical on the pocketbook. Instead create a do-it-yourself skin care regime to carry over until the next salon visit. Opt for utilizing common food items.


Set natural skin care in motion when kiwis or bananas are in season. Cut up the fruit and them on the skin for ten minutes.  This helps dissolve away any dead cells, perks and tones up the skin. 


Blend a mixture of sugar, and olive or vegetable oil. Exfoliate the entire body with this compound in circular motions and concentrate more on problem areas such as the elbows, heels and knees. Use a much lighter touch for the face and add more oil and less sugar when applying. Rinse off in the shower with cool/cold water.

Design a mask to bring out the real you

The oatmeal mask works for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. Boil water and add to oatmeal flakes. Mix well into a paste, allow cooling and applying to skin. Lie down for twenty minutes until the mask hardens. Peel off the mask and then rinse with cold water.

Just with these three procedures, the skin will glow just as well as when one leaves a salon.
