Getting Your Mumjo Back .Part III

Hello Dearies,

Another weekend is around the corner, and as i always preach, try to pamper yourself this weekend. Ensure you rest, and do something to enhance your looks. As mothers, we need to REST well, so we can be energized for our job role (Motherhood is a full time job). Our skin also needs the rest to heal itself.

So lets get back to our MUMJO gist. Like i promised on the last post, today am going to share some natural remedies which help ME to regain my skin tone and smoothen my skin.
Like i said on my first post, am a sticker for NATURAL REMEDIES, although slow to act, the results however, are lasting and without side effects.

I started getting interested in natural remedies from a very early age, and over time, i have found so many recipes that can be used for different skin issues.

Here are a few of my recipes

1. Tomato Juice/Scrub
 Yes, the same tomato you use to make your stew, is VERY good for your skin. It contains lycopene, which is an anti-oxidant that helps to heal the skin, and reduce signs of ageing.

Tomato Juice
1.Slice your tomato in 2 and squeeze out the juice on your palm.
2.Apply this juice on your face and all over your body.
3.Leave for about 15 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water.
4. Pat dry with a clean towel

Tomato Scrub
1. Blend 2 fruits of tomato in a blender with very little water. (Please do not add pepper o)
2. Scoop into a bowl, and add 5 tablespoons of sugar.
3. Apply on face and massage in circular motions
4. Wash off with warm water.
5. Pat dry with a clean towel, and apply a moisturizer (Olive Oil)

Tomato Juice helps to clear spots, reduce acne and gives you a smoother, even tone complexion. For better results you can apply the tomato juice on a daily basis.

You can apply the tomato scrub 2-3 times a week, as this helps to EXFOLIATE (remove dead skin cells).

2. Olive Oil Sugar Scrub

Actually i need to mention, that sugar is a natural exfoliator, hence whenever you see sugar in a remedy, it is always used as a scrub. Olive Oil is loaded with ANTIOXIDANTS and Vitamins A and E. It is especially good for people with dry skin.

Simply applying olive oil on your skin can help your skin regain its tone.

Olive Oil Scrub
1. Pour 2 tablespoons of  olive oil into a clean bowl
2. Add 3 tablespoons of sugar
3. Apply on face and massage in circular motions
4. Leave for 5 minutes
5. Wash off with warm water
6. Pat dry with a clean towel.

Believe me when i tell you that, you would see the IMMEDIATE effect of this scrub, as your skin will be smoother, supple and glowing. This remedy is one of my favorite. i use it almost every week.

Note: You can store the leftover Olive scrub, by covering the bowl with a lid, and reuse as often as you deem necessary.

I have other remedies which can be used to LIGHTEN your complexion, REDUCE wrinkle lines etc, but i would only be sharing them upon request by you, my readers.

So if you have any special areas you need help..HOLLA at me. If i have solution, i'll provide it.

Don't forget to drop your comments and/or questions.

Thanks for dropping by...One Love !!!
