Teenage girls have to deal with a lot. One of the biggest bummers is acne! Luckily nature gives us lots of useful tools to combat annoyances like pimples. Oatmeal is a great exfoliator and is gentle but effective. Here is an all natural oatmeal mask to help with acne and acne scarring.download

Mix 2 tbsp of oatmeal with half a cup of raw milk. Next, add 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil and 1 tbsp of honey to the mixture and mix well. Let the paste sit until it comes smooth, or about 10 minutes. Now it is time to apply it! Gently smooth it onto your face and massage it in circles for 2-3 minutes. Then rinse it off with cold water!

This yummy smelling face scrub exfoliates the dead skin off and also gives you a moisturized glow! Enjoy your silky soft skin.

What do you usually have for an after school snack? After a long day at school I tend to crave something sweet. Something like…cookies! There is a few problems with this. One is that cookies are time consuming to make, and I want a snack right when I get home, and the other is that they aren’t the best for you! Today I am introducing cookies that are not only good for you, but they only take 5 minutes to make! They are packed with protein and sugar free, so that means they are totally guilt free, too. This recipe makes a giant yummy cookie for one.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup rolled oatshealthy-no-bake-giant-cookie-for-one2
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • Dash of salt
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2 tbsp peanut or almond butter
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • Chocolate chips of choice

Line a plate with parchment paper and set it aside. In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, salt, coconut flour protein powder, and cinnamon and mix well. Stir the peanut or almond butter and honey in until the mixture is crumbly. Add the milk a tablespoon at a time until the batter is very thick. Use your hands to form a cookie shape and eat up!

Best back to school snack everrrr!

Australia:  Got dandruff?  No problem!  Adding a few drops of tea tree oil to your normal shampoo will get rid of the problem in no time!

Egypt:  For soft skin, bathe in milk and honey.  This one dates back all the way to the time of the pyramids!

Brazil:  If you didn’t already know this, oats are great for your skin!  In Brazil, they place oatmeal in a filter bag and place it over their faucet in the bathtub.  Once the hot water has filtered through the oats, you’ve got yourself a sunburn relief bath!

Costa Rica:  If you have large pores and would like to shrink them for a short-term effect, mix together orange juice and water and use a cotton ball to rub the mixture on your skin.  Let the juice sink in for a few minutes and then continue to wash your face as you normally would!  Your pores should be noticeably smaller.

Spain:  Remove dark under eye circles by placing a sliced potato on your eyes.  This will lighten the skin!

The world has got some pretty great ideas!  It’s time we take advantage of them!

For a lot of people, oatmeal is just a classic breakfast food. What they may not know is that oatmeal is a classic skin treatment, too! It can be used to treat dry skin and itching, as well as to reduce redness and protect the skin against UV rays and sun damage. It can also be used to treat sunburns! Here is how you can use oatmeal to cleanse your skin:oatmeal-close-up

Take a handful of oatmeal. Make a fist around it, and run your fist under lukewarm water for about 10 seconds. You
should feel the water seeping through your fingers and wetting the oatmeal. Then, open your fist and wet the oatmeal just a little bit more. Lean over the sink, and spend about a minute massaging the oatmeal onto your face. It can get a bit messy, so that is why you should lean over the sink. Rinse the oatmeal off with warm water and pat your face dry.

If you often have red, irritated skin, then this remedy is perfect for you! If you love having clear beautiful skin, I recommend this all natural treatment!

XOXO, Chels
