The skin is a very delicate creation that needs lots of care and attention. Not just for women but men too. Taking good care of your skin naturally can be easily fit in as a natural part for your daily routine.
Extra virgin olive oil mixed with lavender and sea salt makes a fantastic bath oil that will leave your skin clean and fresh, hydrated and smelling fantastic. You’ll notice the difference after your very first dip. The exfoliating and curative powers of the sea salt will heal scrapes and sores and take away the day’s dirt and grime. While the olive oil will leave you with skin softer than you realised possible. Creating altogether with the sweet relaxing smell of lavender, the perfect way to care for your skin and finish your day. You’ll never buy another bath oil again
(Mix equal parts of lavender and sea salt 40/50g per litre bottle of oil. Leave for 24hr before you start to use. 5 min preparation time.)
Another great method that has been around for centuries is good old fashioned mud. Not that I advise you start digging up your garden. You can find this ready mixed or in powder form in pretty much any good herbalist or naturalist shop. It’s best used on a night before you go to bed to give your skin time to breath, as opposed to before you put your makeup on in preparation for a night out. The benefits of a good mud pack at night are endless and won’t just leave you with fantastically clean skin replenished with natural minerals, but you’ll feel relaxed, de-stressed and ready for a great night’s sleep.

If you do have trouble sleeping, and like most suffer from the tell tale signs of a bad night’s sleep – bag’s under your eyes and general bad humour – pop a cotton bag of lavender in the microwave for a few seconds and then into your pillow case. You’ll be soothed of to sleep in no time. Drink a big glass of water when you wake up and sit for 5 minutes with sliced cucumber or potato on your eyes before you start your day. You and those around you will certainly notice the difference.
With a few basic flowers and herbs you’re skin will be looking fantastic faster than any high street skin care product would ever allow.
