Something else you can do is to eat as many raw vegetables as possible. Raw vegetables are preferable to cooked vegetables because cooking vegetables removes some nutritional value. Cooked vegetables do not give the full benefit of the interaction of fiber, phytonutrients, minerals and vitamins as raw vegetables do. Don't think of raw food as just salad. There are amazing recipes for delicious food that rival your favorites. Remember that the best way to fight aging and get antioxidants into your body is through your diet.   www.face-natural.com

3. A few quick and easy skin rejuvenating masks...


Quick banana honey mask for Dry Skin    http://www.diagolo.com   

If you tend to have dry skin, you know how important it is to find products that will moisturize and soften your  skin. But did you know that one of the best softening ingredients is found in your kitchen instead of the bathroom? 

Two bananas that are mashed to a smooth texture can be applied to your face and left on for ten minutes. If you  like, you can add a bit of honey to your banana mixture as well.

Rinse your face with clean water, and delight in  how soft and supple your skin feels.  If you do not use the entire mixture in one sitting, you can refrigerate for up  to a week for additional applications.

Peach Oatmeal Boost for Normal Skin    http://www.diagolo.com

For a gentle scrub, you can add plain yogurt to ½ cup of oatmeal or cornmeal to form a paste. Apply to your damp skin and rinse with warm water.

Oatmeal softens your skin, and works very well for those that are easily prone to allergies and irritation from other products.

If you are looking for a mask for your normal skin that will smell  as good as it will clean and freshen, try using a peach and some oatmeal. Cook the peach until it is soft enough to mash with a fork. Add one tablespoon of honey and enough oatmeal to form a paste. Apply to your skin and let it set  for ten minutes before washing off.

Yogurt walnut scrub for Oily Skin

You can also make a scrub out of ¼ cup of plain yogurt and ¼ cup of finely ground  walnuts. After wetting your face, gently work the scrub into your skin. Finish by rinsing with warm water.

 4. Moisturizer recipe             

Simple Oil Moisturizer

¼ cup jojoba oil
¼ cup grape seed oil (contains vitamins E, C, & beta carotene)
¼ tsp. Bergamot essential oil (used to combat depression)
¼ tsp. Ylang ylang oil

Add the oils in the order listed to the empty bottle. Crack open the Vitamin E Capsule and drip contents into bottle. Shake the bottle to mix content and apply directly to your skin. It’s especially good right out of the shower.

5.  MINERAL MAKEUP: A quick note on mineral makeup.

There is good mineral makeup and bad mineral makeup...

Avoid mineral make-up that contains:  bismuth oxycholoride, talc, magnesium stearate, boron nitride, petroleum, mineral oil, or dimethicone.  With mineral make-up less is more.  A good mineral make-up ingredient list should include mica, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, iron oxides and very little else.
