Come this Christmas; give yourself a better gift than you ever have before. Apply a new beauty regime with these natural beauty hacks and treatments. With year-end sales happening all round, you'll find most of these ingredients on sale!
1. Create Matcha spot treatment
Acne problem? Try this out instead. Use a make-up brush instead of your finger to apply the tea so that the dirt and oil on your hands don’t end up in the mix.
2. Create an all natural deodorant with corn starch, baking soda, and coconut oil.
This fruit is not just stimulating to the taste buds, it has the same effect on the skin as well. The seeds give the mix its exfoliating properties.
8. Rejuvenate your skin with collagen
As you grow older, your skin loses its elasticity, hence the sagging and wrinkles.
Collagen is the most common protein in our body, and it comprises of 30 percent of the body’s total protein content. It offers a wide variety of skin benefits, which helps to boost skin elasticity and thickness, as well as prevents your skin from developing fine lines along the contours of facial expressions.
As you age, collagen tends to break down, which reduces the skin’s elasticity, resulting in wrinkles, saggy skin, age spots, and similar effects of aging.
Replenish the collagen you are constantly losing naturally by eating the right kinds of food such as soymilk, cheese, Manuka honey, prunes, omega acids or even fish collagen supplements.
You can also add a drinkable collagen product from Blackmores to your regime, which has all the right ingredients to aid skin repair and rejuvenation, promoting new cell growth. More information about it can be found here.
9. Don't forget to hydrate your hair
Warming up the mask will help you hair absorb it much faster. Find out more about how to do it here.
10. Make an exfoliating body scrub by mixing rose petals, sugar, almond oil, and coconut oil.
Mix the contents before you use the scrub. More directions here.
11. Say goodbye to your loofa! An orange will do the job.
The acid in the citrus fruit makes a great exfoliator.

When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it.

Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
