Facial Treatments

Trade Secret: dab Preparation H on the puffy spots under the eyes. The shark liver oil in the product reduces water retention. Witch hazel and Listerine are other fashion favorites, but they’ll try out your skin in a big way. A caution for all of these products is to avoid contact with your eyes.


If you want to keep your skin free of bacteria, dead cells, and product residue, mix 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar or white vinegar with a cup of warm water. Apply to face with a soft clean cloth or cotton balls. Applied once a week will keep pimples at bay because the bacteria that cause pimples are not acid tolerant and they die-not even the strong survive. Source: Tammy Ha, Cosmetic Chemist.

Blackheads: Run parsley through a blender, pour boiling water over the herbs and let cool for 30 seconds. Apply the blended parsley to your clogged areas. Drape a towel over your head and the bowl, keeping your head about 18 inches away. Steam for 5 to 8 minutes MAX to soften you skin, loosen dirt, and make your skin more receptive to moisturizers. Exfoliate with a mask gently and rinse off. No matter how tempting it may be- do not pick!
