SPRING CLEAN YOUR FACE
$3 New You Facial!
It’s time to shed old dull skin cells, reinvigorate your face, and show off the new refreshed you! Not to worry, this facial isn’t going to cost you a paycheck, nor will it require endless hours at a spa (which honestly isn’t so bad).
Do this Orange and Yogurt Refrigerator Facial at home for less than $3. Yogurt is amazing for your skin. It is filled with lactic acids and milk proteins that moisturize and firm the skin. Greek Yogurt has more protein, naturally active enzymes, and less sugar than other yogurts, making it the best refrigerator facial option. Orange juice and orange peel are very active antibacterials, helping to fight acne, exfoliating dead skin, lightening dark spots, and unveiling your natural glow. Combine 1 tbsp yogurt with ¼ squeezed orange juice and a few spritzes of essence from the peel. Smear it all over your face and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Wash off with warm water.
SPRING CLEAN YOUR THIGHS (and Fight Cellulite!)
When it comes to fighting and minimizing the appearance of cellulite, it’s all about strengthening connective tissues and improving circulation to help with cell turnover and detoxification. Eating specific foods will certainly help your cause, or you could go directly to the source and spread those foods on your skin instead. Remember, skin is like a sponge, sucking up whatever you put on its surface. It’s time to for it to eat up!
COFFEE & CAYENNE BODY SCRUB- Coffee grinds help energize and speed up circulation when you drink. Same goes when you rub it on your skin, plus the coarse grinds also of course help to exfoliating, removing dead skin cells and making room for the fresh vibrate layers beneath. Cayenne pepper is known as a fat burning food thanks to its ability to naturally heat up the body, increasing circulation and metabolism. It also helps with cell turnover, getting rid of weak bad skin cells and replacing with strong healthy cells. Combine ½ cup of coffee grounds and 1 tsp cayenne pepper with ¼ cup of nourishing and moisturizing olive oil, then slather the stuff on your butt and thighs. Leave it on for 5 minutes and wash off.
