Maybe you’ve been on a treasure hunt, in search of the ultimate anti-aging skin regimen. Well your treasure hunt just might end in your kitchen. Those natural ingredients you use for your vegetarian dishes are equally as beneficial to your outer body, as they are to your inner body.
A natural, safe and effective solution to anti-aging skin and wrinkles is in your kitchen? Yes. Thousands upon thousands of people (mostly women, but this IS equally as effective for men) swear by this 3-step kitchen ingredient method for getting glowing, youthful, clear and bright skin. Wrinkles are kept at bay and fine lines are said to disappear. Mediterranean women use these ingredients as well, and they successfully fool many people who are trying to guess their true age.
Ok, go into your kitchen and grab the following 3 items……………….
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
BAKING SODA – (wash step) It doesn’t get any simpler than putting a nickel to quarter size amount of baking soda in your palm, and add just enough water to make a moist scrub-paste. You can adjust the water amount to make a thicker or thinner wash scrub. If you want extra exfoliating, then you can add some uncooked oatmeal to the mixture.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR – (toner step) After you have washed your face with the baking soda, then saturate a cotton ball or cotton make-up square, and wipe your face. Let air dry completely before moisturizing and/or applying make-up. For those who have acne, this might sting a bit. If it does, you can dilute the apple cider vinegar with 50% water.
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL – (night moisturizer step) After washing and toning, simply pour a small amount of extra virgin olive oil into your palms and spread a thin layer on your face and neck. This is great for the eye area and for lip area wrinkles, but please do be careful not to get any oil into your eyes. Olive oil is a bit heavy for daytime moisturizing, so use a natural and mineral-free moisturizer for daytime use, before applying petroleum-free make-up.
