Today I want to give a big shout out to my friend and coworker who is in San Francisco running the Alcatraz Triathlon. Good Luck Cathy!
This morning I had a great compliment from a fellow gym goer. She said I looked very fit. Thank you!
In the spirit of no more chemicals on my body I have started making my own face wash. It is oatmeal and almonds run through the blender to a fine powder. It appears to be working amazing. The only issue I have seen was super dry skin this winter. I have used coconut oil and almond oil to counteract this problem to no avail.
This is when I start searching Google. I am Thankful for Google.
I found this great resource New Nostalgia. Great information.
This is the recipe from New Nostalgia
Homemade Face Moisturizer
4 Tbsp 100% Aloe Vera Juice (the drinkable kind)
1 tsp Vegetable Glycerine
6 drops Jojoba Oil
1/4 tsp Sweet Almond Oil
1 Container to keep the moisturizer in.
Measure all into container. You may need to use a funnel.
Before each use, shake well. This is not a creamy product, it is quite watery. Apply using a cotton pad or your clean fingertips. It will take a minute to dry, but as it does, it will absorb and leave you with soft, silky smooth skin!
If you need more moisture, just add a bit more of the oils until you get the level your specific skin type needs. The above recipe was just perfect for mine.
I recommend this recipe. My dry skin disappeared in just 2 uses.
Thank You New Nostalgia for a great recipe.
