Skin Care

Remedy for oily skin: make a homemade mask by combining one egg white and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply mask and rinse with warm water after 20 minutes

  • For softer skin, steam your face over boiling water (drape a towel over head to hold in steam); remove dead skin with a loofah, drink lots of water

  • To rid blackheads, mix cornstarch with vinegar, plaster on the area for 15-30 minutes; wash off with washcloth and warm water.

  • Put cold, cooked oatmeal on your face, it can help give you nicer skin (submitted by laura)

  • Run out of shaving cream to shave your legs? Use hair conditioner. It makes legs nice and smooth too.

  • Also try your favorite body wash

  • To get rid of that fake tan from the tanning bottle that you may have messed up: 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 1/2 cup sugar, loofah and scrub. (You may have heard that on "The Wedding Planner.")

  • To help skin glow, place hot towels on skin for 10 minutes, then splash face with cold water 10 times

  • To help dry out your acne without drying out your face, put a thin layer of Phillips Milk of Magnesia over your face. It works great (submitted by visitor).

  • rub cucumber peel (wet side up) on your face and leave on overnight to cure acne(submitted by visitor)

  • (visitor recommendation) ~ For the smoothest skin ever... trust me I have psoriasis and it is nearly impossible to find a moisturizer that works... after a shower or bath spread vaseline over your entire body (or wherever you wish) , it's a very greasy feeling but be patient. let it soak into your skin for about an hour or more if u can handle it, while sitting on a towel. this works so well that you only need to do it once or twice a month
