Beauty & You 2

Surfing the internet for some stuff and i come across these recipes:

Barley Scrub
Ground up barley can also be used as a gentle facial scrub. Seems that barley is something that should be in your beauty ingredient cupboard.

Honey Cleansing Scrub
Mix 1 tablespoon of honey with 2 tablespoons finely ground almonds and 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice. Rub gently onto face. Rinse off with warm water.

Facial Toner
In blender, puree 1 tablespoon honey with a peeled, cored apple. Smooth over face, leave on 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water.

Firming Face Mask
Whisk together 1 tablespoon honey, 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon glycerin (available at drug and beauty stores) and enough flour to form a paste (approximately 1/4 cup). Smooth over face and throat. Leave on 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

Moisture Mask
Mix 2 tablespoons honey with 2 teaspoons milk. Smooth over face and throat. Leave on 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

Smoothing Skin Lotion
Mix 1 teaspoon honey with 1 teaspoon vegetable oil and 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice. Rub into hands, elbows, heels and anywhere that feels dry. Leave on 10 minutes. Rinse off with water.

Skin Softening Bath
Add 1/4 cup honey to bath water for a fragrant, silky bath.

Hair Shine
Stir 1 teaspoon honey into 4 cups (1 quart) warm water. Blondes may wish to add a squeeze of lemon. After shampooing, pour mixture through hair. Do not rinse out. Dry as normal.

Hair Conditioner
Mix 1/2 cup honey and 1/4 cup olive oil. (Use 2 tablespoons oil for normal hair.) Work a small amount at a time through hair until coated. Cover hair with a shower cap. Leave on 30 minutes. Remove shower cap, shampoo well and rinse. Dry as normal.

Yes~ I’m definitely looking forward to my redang trip but with some worries. My period is going to hit one of these days. Sigh~ But I had a few advices from my beloved colleagues and Geok Leng. So i get to know that there is this “magic pill” from the doctor that can postpone your period. Just take them 2 to 3 days before your period. Hmm… Best solution~ Just pop some pills.

One of my colleagues has been very “helpful”. She pass me a tampon, asking me to give it a try. I nearly fainted in the toilet when i open the package. Seriously (and shy to say), I don’t know how to insert that thingy. And i dun think i will use that in my life. Hahaha~
