homemade beauty facial masque

i was in mad need of a beauty facial so rather than using one of my store bought masks or scrubs, i decided to make one. a few weeks ago, i bought an aloe vera plant so i did a quick search on quick and easy homemade scrubs. i did a bit of omitting and adding and came up with something:

  • 1/2 cup of cornmeal (i used leftover polenta mix)
  • 1/4 cup of yogurt (or enough to make a paste)
  • 10 drops of lavender oil
  • the white flesh of the aloe vera leaf


mix it all together and refrigerate. it came out to a lot, i may have to give some away to some broads cus i do know that it's not good to do a scrub everyday, i *think* once a week suffices.


anyway, a spoonful is more than enough. now that i think about it tho, i could probably use it as a body scrub. hmmmm... don't let dry too long, maybe leave on face for like 10 minutes. rinse off with warm water and moisturize as usual.
