I am BIG on natural products, especially for skin. I have found over the years that for me, they work better.

Baking soda makes an EXCELLENT facial scrub. Mix a tablespoon of it with warm water to form a paste. Apply to face and rinse with warm water.

Follow with peroxide as an astringent. It will not only tone your skin but kill bacteria as well.

Need a mask for oily skin? Beat egg whites until stiff. Apply to face and let dry. Rinse with warm water.

Need one for dry skin? Egg yolk and honey! Beat together, apply and let dry. Rinse with warm water.

Remember with any facial or scrub, you should follow with a moisturizer specific to your skin type. My personal favorites are RevitaLift by Loreal and ambi for combination skin, which helps to fade skin discolorations.

Aloe Vera gel works great to relieve tired eyes. Just dab a little under each eye and feel refreshed. Its also a great non-drying. Non-sticky hair gel!

I don’t wear a lot of make up, but here are a few of my favorites:

Lipfinity by MaxFactor

OutLast all day lip color from CoverGirl
Both of these are awesome and last through all seven of my meals in a day.

UltraLiner water proof eyeliner by Maybelline
