BEAUTY: Natural Facials to Recoup from Summer Damage

by JT

Like every other polar beaten, wind whipped Nodak - summer means being outside as much as possible. After all, we only get about a week of it.

And as much as I apply and reapply sunscreen and oils, my skin still starts looking a little beat up from the sun.

Being one inclined to natural remedies - my girlfriend taught me these two that have worked wonders.

Safflower Kiwi Kiss

1 whole Kiwi, mashed

1 Tbsp sugar

1/2 Tbsp Safflower oil

Mix, apply, gently scrub, and rinse*

Being a coffee-holic, this next one is particularly handy.

Antioxidant Coffee Clarifier

2 Tbsp Coffee Grounds

1 1/2 Tbsp Honey

Mix, apply, gently scrub, and rinse*

*I follow both of these with applying coconut oil. The small molecules that make up the oil seepright in. Also use it for removing make up!
