My husband took this picture this morning (I haven't even showered today or ran a brush through my hair yet). But I asked him to take a picture because my skin just feels SO amazing and I wanted to post something about my skin care regimen. The cool thing is I am not selling you any of the products and they are inexpensive, (and last months if not years) and no toxins!! (I will link to them to show you where you can purchase them, but you can get them wherever!)
Last night, after washing my face with Miracle Soap, like I always do, I made up a mask of French green clay. You can buy it at Amazon, Mountain Rose Herbs, or wherever. I bought it at Mountain Rose Herbs and it lasts a LONG time! My 8 oz package has lasted me well over 3 years (it is almost gone now!).
I took about 2 teaspoonfuls of the clay powder in the palm of my hand and then I added water until it was about toothpaste consistency. Then I added it onto my skin -- including my neck. And let it dry.
Bentonite clay masks should not dry, but the French green clay masks should - you will feel your skin tighten as it dries, and become itchy!! During the drying process you will look like you have camouflage paint on your face and your dog may bark at you. It may take anywhere from 5 minutes to 15 minutes.
Then take a warm wet washcloth and remove the mask.
After you remove the mask, your skin will feel the cleanest it has ever felt. Then, I put on the homemade tallow night cream that make. (Click here for the Tallow Cream Recipe)
You can be generous with this after a mask. Let your skin soak up the refreshing benefits of tallow -- the closest thing in nature to your skins own natural sebum!
I do use it under my eyes and around the tops of my eyes.
This morning I woke up and washed my face gently with a dab of Miracle II soap and used Miracle II lotion (the only "lotion" I use that is not homemade). I take a few dabs of it and put it on my face. That is all I do, and then I am ready for my mascara and eyeliner that I haphazardly put on this morning... (I use Tarte Cosmetics -- not 100% organic but in an effort to be the least toxin free and highest quality, this is my choice for the time being).
Yes, you CAN have beautiful skin without toxins, and without paying with your first born child!
