DIY Brightening Facial Toner

I love everything skin and especially when it comes to making and trying new skin care recipes. A few weeks ago (after giving up with the toner I was currently using) tried a new toner recipe and since then have been, dare I say, in love with it.
Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Lemon juice
1 Cup Water
2/3 Cup Witch hazel (can purchase at any drug store)
Plastic bottle or jar
Facial toner recipe for those with normal to dry skin:
*For oily skin add 2 Tablespoons Rubbing Alcohol*

STEP ONE: Mix ingredients in a bottle or jar.

STEP TWO: Cleanse skin with facial cleanser and rinse. Repeat.
STEP THREE: Apply toner with a cotton pad, sweep upward and outward over entire face and neck.
STEP FOUR: Apply moisturizer.
Benefits:
Witch Hazel: Tightens pores and reduces inflammation.
Lemon Juice: Reduce blemishes and lightens skin.
Use facial toner both morning and night for a deeper cleanse, smaller pores and bright, radiant skin!

Coconut Oil Lotion Bar

There are so many health benefits to using coconut oil, like how it reduces skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. It also softens the skin and relieves dryness and flaking. Applied topically it helps to prevent wrinkles,saggy skin and age spots. Coconut Oil is truly amazing!

Today I’m sharing a recipe for making Coconut Oil Lotion Bars. These bars are great for everyone, especially those who live in warmer areas and don’t want their moisturizer to melt! This lotion bar is easy to make and only has 3 ingredients!

Coconut Oil Lotion Bar:

Equipment:
Saucepan
Lotion Mold, Muffin Pan or Tins

Ingredients:
1 Part Coconut Oil – where to find quality coconut oil
1 Part Pure Beeswax
Essential Oils (Optional)

Directions:
Heat coconut oil and beeswax together in a saucepan over low heat. It helps if you break up the beeswax into small chunks because it takes a while for the wax to melt. Once the beeswax and coconut oil are melted add essential oils. I like to use vanilla and lavender. I’m sensitive to strong fragrances so I only add a few drops.

Pour melted coconut oil and beeswax into lotion bar molds or muffin tins. Let them sit until cool. You can also place them in the refrigerator if you need to speed up the process.

How To Use Lotion Bars

The first time I used a lotion bar I had some trouble. No one explained to me how to use them. I ended up bringing it into the shower with me and used it like a soap bar. It worked pretty well as a moisturizer, but a lot of it would wash off in the shower. Later I figured out that your not supposed to use it in the shower (though I still keep one in my shower because we like to use it the wrong way). Instead you need to rub the bar until it’s warm and then apply it on your skin like lotion. 😉
