Nature's Way - Masks

There are so many weird and wonderful things that you can use to make a facial mask.  My daughters and I have had loads of fun with natural masks and also had great results.  Many chemical masks have frighteningly high risks so soaking your face with them is not a good idea.  Most masks contain dangerous substances and block your pores.  It is important to allow your skin to breathe and adding too many products can have an adverse effect.  Less is more when it comes to your skin so find a beauty regime that allows your skin to find a natural balance. 
Most of the time what you put into your body has more effect that what you put onto your skin.  Eating healthy, exercising, sleeping well and drinking lots of water are the most important ingredients for the best looking skin.   After that comes a simple cleanse, tone and moisturise routine with natural ingredients.  If necessary, use a Nature’s Way mask from time to time. 

The following table shows the health concerns based on commonly used chemical mask.

The best thing to help your skin get the boost it needs is a facial massage which is known to improve the circulation to your skin and will rejuvenate your face.  Here is a simple facial massage:
  1. Apply a little olive oil or facial essential oil to your face
  2. Use your finger tips fingers to massage up and outwards in a circular motion, starting from your chin.  Start small and make the circles bigger as you move to the top of your forehead.
  3. For added benefits continue your massage into your scalp as if shampooing your hair. 

Nature’s Way Alternatives
If you decide that you need a mask why not try avocado for dry skin, green tea masks for sensitive skin, strawberry with yogurt for oily skin and oats with lemon for acne prone skin.  An egg white mask is suitable for all skins types.  Egg whites are high in protein which feeds your skin and as the egg dries it tightens your skin while drawing excess oil from the pores.   
    Eating eggs is also great for your skin as they contain selenium, vitamins A and E, folate, riboflavin, choline and lutein.  Some studies have suggested the eating eggs will smooth your skin. 

•    Healthier skin
•    Removes fine lines
•    Save lots of money
•    No harmful chemicals

•    Don’t use a mask too often as it isn’t necessary.


Ingredients:  Egg White

Method:  Whisk the egg whites until they get foamy. Smooth the white onto your face in an upward motion, applying liberally.  Allow to dry for twenty minutes and then rinse off with warm water.

More mask recipes:
There are many other simple ways to make masks using natural ingredients, here are some examples:

Mash together the flesh of an avocado and apply to your face.  Rinse off after ten minutes.  You can also include a teaspoon of honey and a teaspoon of yogurt to your avocado for added benefits.

Mix equal quantities of fresh strawberries and yogurt. Apply to your face and rinse off after ten minutes.

Green Tea
Soak a green tea bag in a quarter cup of boiling water.  When cooled sufficiently soak some cotton wool with the green tea and dab it onto your face liberally.  Allow the green tea to dry naturally and don’t rinse off.
    Another alternative which will need washing off after ten minutes is to mix a little oats and honey into the green tea to create a face paste. 

Now it's your turn.

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
