beauty mask!!!

Today my cute as a button youngest DD saw me while having one of my rare moments of beauty.......with a yougurt & honey mask all over my face...she looked at me for a minute & with the cuteness of a 5 year old she said" mommy shouldn't you have 2 slices of cucumber on your eyes"
I just laughed ...I guess this is the picture she had in mind........



just had to share...apparently a beauty diva is on her way....

Now on another note ...some beauty recipes for puffy eyes:

  • Used Tea Bags (chilled or slightly warm–both work)
  • Potato Slices (thinly sliced)
  • Cucumber Slices (thinly sliced)
  • Apple Slices (thinly sliced)
  • Strawberries (mash then apply to the puffy area or you can make slices and apply)
  • Plain Yogurt (dab over puffy area)
  • Chilled teaspoons (rest directly on eye area for several minutes)
  • Cold Compress spritzed with witch hazel water*
  • Cold Compress spritzed with lavender water*


*For the witch hazel water or lavender water compress, first soak the compress in cool water, ring out then spritz with witch hazel water or lavender water–just a light, even spritz will do. Witch hazel water can be found at organic or health food stores, your local pharmacy may carry it too.

Tip: When using sliced food items, slice really thin then apply a couple layers over the puffy area. With thin slices, they’ll form to your face easier. Spritz or dab cool water over the skin first before applying food slices.
