Yogurt and Avocado Hand Therapy

Yogurt and Avocado Hand Therapy

Take one mashed avocado
1/2 cup of plain yogurt
The juice from one lemon
One pair of white cotton gloves and some olive oil.

Mix thoroughly, the avocado, yogurt and lemon juice in a medium container. Put a generous amount all over your hands and leave it on for ten minutes. Rinse your hands thoroughly.

After you have rinsed and dried your hands, apply a liberal amount of the olive oil.

Put on the white gloves and leave them on over-night. This treatment will gently slough of dead skin and the lemon juice will help to gradually fade any dark spots that you have.

NOTE: Do not use this anti-aging hand cream if you have sensitive skin or if you have any broken skin on your hands - because the lemon juice will cause a sting.

♥ Olive oil used alone is also an effective moisturizer. You can put it on your hands at night, covered with a pair of cotton gloves and in the morning, your hands will be lovely.

You can use the olive oil on your face and body for smooth silky skin. Olive oil is also a great hair conditioner.

Simple Tricks to Get Rid Of A Pimple

Simple Tricks to Get Rid Of A Pimple
→ Apple cider vinegar on pimples is the answer - To get rid of your pimple use a mixture of equal parts organic apple cider vinegar and distilled water or water that you have boiled on the stove and allowed to completely cool. Put the half and half solution on the pimple with a clean cotton pad two or three time a day.

In a few days the pimple will be almost not even there. After the pimple has cleared, use a milder solution of one table spoon of organic apple cider vinegar
mixed with one cup of pure water. Keep the solution in the refrigerator in a clean sterilized container and try not to put the cotton pad directly on the container and always use a clean cotton pad. Apply the solution with a cotton pad after you cleanse your skin.

Do not use the clear white vinegar on your skin because it it not made with the care that the organic vinegar is made with. And, when you see the slime in the bottom of the organic vinegar is really a natural sediment -- that is the true sign of raw, unfiltered vinegar.

→ You can also clear your pimples with lemon juice. Use a cotton tip to put the lemon luice on your pimple[s]. They will clear up in a few days thanks to the antiseptic properties of the lemon juice. If you put the lemon juice all over your face, you will make the entire area lighter and this may make your pimples stand out even more. Make sure you put the juice only on your pimples, unless you want your skin to become lighter.
