  • I do have one and it's absolutely refreshing!
    Just get a minty paste toothpaste, I use crest regular because it tingles and really does well on leaving no film.
    But any white toothpaste like aquafresh, yes the stripes are o.k.
    Or ultrabright, or pepsodent.
    When you take out a one inch line of paste, ....add 1 tsp of white sugar (for scrubbing)
    Make this into one paste, and add 2 drops of water.
    Swirl around semi-lightly on your chin, apples of your cheeks, around nose, and forehead areas.
    Rinse with semi - warm water, never hot or cold, you will be burned by the mint.

  • Hmmm, I'm known to add epson salt to my current facial cleanser for some exfoliation. I also use baking soda sometimes. I'll have to get back to your for a better recipe...

  • Hm... I'm not sure... honey or mayo is good for hair... or so I've heard.

  • I have used baking soda to exfoliate very gently about one time a week and 50/50 vinegar as a toner/cleanser. They both do the job o.k. Honey as a mask or mashed carrots, honey, and aloe gel as a mask experimenting. The skin seemed a little responsive. BUT I feel a moisturizer and mineral powder with spf is very important for the long term protection.
