Amazing Facials You Can Make at Home

19 Jul

I’m always looking for natural ways to improve my hair and skin and I came across this amazing facials that are easy to make and very effective. You just grab some household ingredients and pamper yourself  with a relaxing, DIY facial. Whatever your skin type, there’s an easy to make  option for you. Put on your favorite music, open the fridge, and get ready to  mix and mash your way to the perfect facial. I have oily skin and the facial for my skin type really seem to work. I hope the other ones work as well.

Oily or Acne-Prone Skin: Egg  White Facial

Egg whites tighten the pores and  contain proteins that both repair skin and absorb excess oil, making them a  powerful tool for dealing with acne. Separate the egg white from the yolk (save  the yolk for cooking!). Whisk together the egg white with 1 teaspoon of lemon  juice for one minute. The mixture will be messy, so apply it to your clean, dry  face over a sink. Keep the mask on for 10 to 15 minutes — start whipping up your  favorite dessert with that egg yolk while you wait! Once the mask starts  cracking, wash away with warm water.

Oily or Acne-Prone Skin: Green Clay Facial

A green clay facial will attack unwelcome breakouts by extracting impurities  from your skin. In a glass bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of green clay powder  (available at health stores or online) with water to make a thick paste. Add a  few drops of an essential oil of your choice — we like rosemary for relaxing.  Apply the paste evenly to clean, dry skin. It should take about 15 minutes for  the paste to harden, so while you wait, relax with some music or your favorite  book. Once the mask is hard, wash it off with warm water and pat dry.

Oily or Acne-Prone Skin: Aspirin Facial

If you’re not allergic to aspirin and you have oily or acne-prone skin, try this  facial from blogger Makeup by Lacy — the salicylic acid in aspirin is a great  acne-fighter. Crush four uncoated aspirin pills into a powder using the back of  a spoon. Add water to create a paste. If you prefer a thicker mask, add a bit of  honey. Stir the ingredients then apply the paste to your clean, dry face, making  sure to avoid your eyes and your nostrils. Leave on for 10 minutes, then wash  off and enjoy the clean feeling!


Dry Skin: Avocado Facial

The fatty oils in avocado are great for moisturizing dry skin. Mash up half an  avocado until creamy. Add 1 tablespoon of honey, a cleaning agent, to the mix.  If your skin is irritated, add a bit of plain yogurt for a soothing effect. If  your skin is cryin’ for extra moisture, add 1/4 cup of pure virgin olive oil.  Once all ingredients are well combined, apply the mixture onto your clean face  and neck. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. For added relaxation, add a few drops  of your favorite essential oil to the mixture before applying.

 

Dry Skin: Banana Facial

Grab two bananas for this moisturizing  facial from “Reader’s Digest”: one for your face, and one to use for a yummy  banana split! (C’mon, you deserve it.) Mash a peeled banana until it turns into  a paste, then mix in 2 tablespoons of honey for an extra skin cleanser. If the  mixture is too thick, add a bit of water. Apply the paste to clean and dry skin,  letting it sit for 10 to 20 minutes. Indulge in that banana treat as you wait,  then wash the mask off with warm water. Your skin will feel soft and  refreshed!

Dull Skin: Papaya Facial

The enzymes in papaya make it a natural exfoliant that fights free radicals, so  say goodbye to dullness with this facial from Skinny Chef, Jennifer Iserloh!  Peel and remove the seeds of one papaya, then chop it into small pieces. Add 1/4  cup of honey for a natural cleanser. Using a blender or food processer, mix the  ingredients until a paste is formed. Apply the paste to clean, dry skin,  avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes then splash off with warm  water. Wash thoroughly, or the papaya juice could make your face look orange!

Dull Skin: Lemon Juice and Sea Salt Facial

A lemon juice and sea salt facial not only smells delicious, but it’s simple to  make and great for rejuvenating skin! Annie Berthold-Bond, author of “Better  Basics for the Home,” recommends combining 1/4 cup of sea salt with lemon juice.  It’s up to you whether you want the mixture to be thick or runny, so add lemon  juice accordingly. Apply the paste to your clean, dry face, avoiding sensitive  areas. Close your eyes and relax for a few minutes while you let the lemon juice  slough off dead skin cells, then wash with warm water.

Dull Skin: Oatmeal Facial

The uneven edges of oatmeal make it a gentle exfoliant, ideal for sloughing off  dead cells to reveal the bright skin underneath. Combine 2 tablespoons of  uncooked and unflavored oatmeal with 1 cup of whole milk in a small pot, heating  them until a thick mixture forms. The lactic acid in milk will also remove dead  skin cells. Remove from heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil for moisture.  Wait until the mixture is warm but not hot then apply to your clean, dry face.   Wash off the mask with warm water after 20 to 30 minutes.

Sex Positions for Every Mood

18 Jul

You already tailor your sex positions to hit your pleasure spots, but you can  crank up the heat even more by matching your moves to your mood. Use these  emotion-driven pairings to go from “oh” to “ooooh”—no matter how you’re feeling.

Bossy

Try: The Supernova
Here’s Why:  You call all the shots—and ride your man while he kicks back.
Erotic  Instructions: Begin in the woman-on-top position. Instead of riding him with  his body lengthwise on the mattress, mount your man as he lies perpendicular to  the pillows. Once you’re climbing toward climax, stop moving, and gently grab  the sides of his torso with your hands. Leaning on your knees, inch him toward  the edge of the bed until his head, shoulders, and arms hang backward over the  side. Then start riding him again.

Romantic

Try: The Soft Rock
Here’s Why:  You and your man are face-to-face for the whole experience.
Erotic  Instructions: For this twist on the typical missionary position, instead of  having your man rest on his elbows, ask him to slide two to four inches forward.  Have him place his arms on either side of your shoulders, letting his body fall  flat against yours. With your legs touching his, push your pelvis up about two  inches. Your man should push down gently, providing a little counter-resistance.  Instead of the usual in-and-out of thrusting, rock up and down.

Horny

Try: Time Bomb
Here’s Why:  You’re in the driver’s seat so you control the pace.
Erotic  Instructions: Have him sit down in a low chair with his legs relaxed. Facing  him, straddle him with your feet on the floor, slowly lowering yourself onto his  erection with your knees bent at a 90-degree angle. Start by letting just the  tip of his penis enter you, then lower yourself inch by inch until you’re  allowing him full entry by bearing all the way down on his thighs.

Athletic

Try: Pleasure Pick-Me-Up
Here’s  Why: Your balancing skills and thigh muscles get a workout with this  move.
Erotic Instructions: Standing with his back against the edge  of the bed (or even the washer or dryer), your stud picks you up with his hands  cradling your bottom and the backs of your thighs. Wrap your legs around his  waist (place your feet on the bed for support) and your arms around his neck and  shoulders. As his penis enters you, you hang suspended from him, bouncing up and  down with the help of his arms.

Mellow

Try: Saucy Spoons
Here’s Why:  This position is perfect for when you just want to go slow.
Erotic  Instructions: Lie on your sides with him behind you so you’re both facing  the same direction. Push your butt toward him as he enters you. Put your hand on  his and show him how you want your clitoris to be touched. Have him alternate  between there and your breasts.

Naughty

Try: Bucking Bronco
Here’s Why:  This angle is perfect for G-spot stimulation—and leaves your hands free to  wander.
Erotic Instructions: He lies flat on his back with his  knees bent and legs spread apart. Facing him, get on top and slowly lower  yourself onto his shaft, keeping your knees bent and your legs outside his arms.  Then lean back and support yourself on your palms as he thrusts his hips up and  down.
