Beauty Trends: Natural Home Facial

You want flawless beauty right? Your answer is probably yes as it would be for many of us; the desire to be beautiful has been around since the beginning of time. We’re all born with it we just need a little help maintaining it. According to Greek methodology Aphrodite, the Greek God of Love and Beauty born from sea foam, had very appealing physical features, and was portrayed as a flawless beauty with eternal youth. Unlike Aphrodite we don’t have everlasting youth and never changing flawless beauty so most of us have to use beauty regimens to stay flawless.

Keeping our beauty flawless can sometimes become VERY expensive that I know for a fact. Anyway I recently did some research on at home remedies for solving skin problems and I came across a site that I am now in love with.
Recipe, not only does this site have at home beauty tips and recipes but it also has tons of meal recipes as well and the coolest thing about it is you can follow these regimens using items you already have on hand in your home so there's no need to spend any extra money. These regimens have been used for many years, we all know and admire the beauty of ancient Egyptian ruler Cleopatra, some historians claim Cleopatra gathered salt from the sea to use in her beauty regimen, sea salts are said to be good for scrubbing off dead skin, leaving a polished fresh look.

After spending hours going through the site I finally found a DIY facial plan that I was interested in trying out. I have very sensitive/oily skin so I had to make sure I found something that would work for my combination skin and I did, so I’m sharing with you the at home beauty regimens I'm currently using. Below is the step by step guide to the complete at home natural facial I tailored to my skin type using tips and recipes I got from Recipe Goldmine. Keep in mind everyone has different skin textures so what works for me might not work for you, I suggest seeing a dermatologist if you are concerned about your skin. I hope you find this information useful and I wish you endless beauty. – XOXOXO Mika
