DIY Beauty: Whole Living’s Dill Face Wash

You know those last few sprigs of dill that always seem to go to waste? I’ve just stumbled across a brilliant use for them thanks to www.wholeliving.com. So, why not brush up your beauty skills and savour dill’s natural exfoliating ability with this funky little cleanser that’s super easy to make.

You’ll need…
1 x tsp of fresh or store bought aloe vera gel
1/2 x cup of organic milk
1 x tsp of freshly chopped dill

What you need to do…

Step 1: In a small bowl, combine aloe, milk and dill and stir until smooth.

Step 2: Massage mixture into damp skin with either your fingers of a muslin cloth for around a minute, and then rinse, alternating between warm and cold water.

Step 3: Pat dry.

Why bother? Well, Happies, this gorgeous cleanser utilises the antioxidants found in dill, which inevitably protects your skin from free radicals as well as bacteria. The lactic acid in the milk helps break down dead skin cells and improve the glowiness of your complexion, while aloe, as we know, is super soothing and great for irritated skin types.

Tell me Happies…

    Step #2: Give up the razor blade and switch
    to an electric shaver. It’s black and silver casing is tough and durable if not a little cheap looking. You may draw more attention to your red, puffy face than if you had left the hair alone.

    Purchase from local manufacturers if possible; if not, purchase
    direct from the manufacturer to ensure the most freshness – all-natural beauty products don’t contain chemical preservatives, so their shelf-life may be shorter than their conventional chemical-filled counterparts. Flaxseed is a good choice. In addition to the honey, the Organic Purifying Masque contains rooibos tea extract, aloe juice, jojoba oil, vitamin E, oat extract, rosemary, and neem oil (don’t ask on that last one;
    it’s a plant, that’s all I know.

    The drug is known causes aggression and confusion that
    can grow with dehydration. The victim, 65-year-old Ronald Poppo, is in critical condition-which is to be expected when someone literally
    eats your face. Along the various groups of survivors
    the doctor manages to outlive, he finds that the infection may have been
    started by a food processing plant and an additive that is found in nearly every food and beverage.
