    you can also add coffee grounds to the oatmeal mask! the caffine helps to wake you up and feel more alert! …. also for facials you can make home made blackhead strips with just egg whites and strips of toilet paper… beat up a egg white and apply over nose or forehead place strips of tp over and let sit until compleatly dry and hard, remove strips and wash face with cool water for a more flawless and smooth face!!!

    i make my own bath bags. i make pouches out of old socks and childrens tights. (cut the toe off of socks and string a ribbon to make a drawstring) then add ebsons salt, oatmeal, a few drops of olive oil, then some lavender oil or a fragrant tea, i like green tea with jasmine blossoms. then just tie bag closed an toss in your bath. for best results squeeze bag. my whole family loves um.

    Wet a aspirin with a few drops of water and use that as a acne medicine. Or mix it with your reg face scrub for a medicated face cleanser ( do this per use). Aspirin has salicylic acid which is the main ingredient in alot of acne med. Also if you use the honey with the just wet aspirin and make a medicated mask

    Homemade chemical mask: 5 aspirin and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
    (I use fresh lemons). Mash aspirin in lemon juice, put on face for 5 minutes and rinse, rinse, rinse. Takes off top layer of skin!!! Then if you want to rehydrate use honey and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Your face will be so smooth!!!

    Before you use a beaten egg white and toilet paper on your black heads, microwave a damp wash clothe and lay on your nose and face to open pores….then apply egg white

    For wrinkles take whatever cream you are using and take half a jar and mix it half and half with preperation H and use it night and morning. I have used this with Olay wrinkle cream for years and I have prctically no wrinkles and I am eighty years old. I look twenty years younger so I am told. I was told this was one of the older Hollywood stars secrets to looking young.

      I Googled this and you must use Preparation H made in CANADA. Here is what they said : Preparation H (the hemorrhoid ointment) was prepared with a live yeast cell derivative ( LYCD) called Bio-Dyne at one time in the U.S. It still is in Canada. It helps promote wound healing, thicken skin and reduces wrinkle volume. Today the U.S. version is made with phenylephrine, which is a vasoconstrictor and only temporarily tightens skin. What effect the ointment has on wrinkles depends on which preparation you use.

        I would have never thought to google that. I had heard about using Prep H but never thought about them changing the formulation. Thanks for sharing.
        So then I wondered where you can get the Canadian version without a road trip. I didn’t look too hard but I did find it on Amazon.
