Make Your Own Healthy Facial Mask

Years ago, I remember using the type of face masks that stuck like glue to your skin and dried to a crisp and required plenty of time just to remove it.

I actually miss those masks. It was one of those mother-daughter moments and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Unfortunately, the ones available for purchase today are full of toxins and chemicals that we should not be using.

Now that we know better, more of us are opting to use all natural ingredients to protect our skin.

I found a great recipe using turmeric over at ElephantJournal.com.

This is great because I have plenty of turmeric for my morning cup of healthy tea.


Here's how to make your own healthy facial mask that's great for all types of skin. Notice the different recommendations with the flour based on your skin type.

The Mask.

Turmeric is the star ingredient of this facial but yogurt and honey are also healing agents.

Yogurt is nutrient-rich and moisturizers while honey has natural anti-bacterial properties and brings balance to oily skin. The flour helps to reduce staining. You can adjust the ingredients according to your skin type.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp flour (rice flour for pimple-prone and oily skin, or almond or oatmeal flour for normal and dry skin)
  • 1 Tbs plain organic yogurt for pimple-prone, dry and normal skin, or 2-3 tsp honey for oily skin

Mix everything together, adding only enough yogurt or honey so that the mask is a thick consistency.

Slather the mask over your face and neck. Avoid your eyebrows and hair as turmeric is a natural hair remover!

Remove the mask with water just before it starts to dry; about 10-15 minutes.

They have plenty of tips in addition to this recipe, so be sure to check it out:

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is SCDHEC.gov/, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.




How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
