Sea Salt Removes Dry, Flaky, Dead Skin

Wet your face and apply a couple of tablespoons of sea salt, then GENTLY massage with a wet washcloth or fingers. Focus on the T-zone and cheeks, but avoid the eye area.

1 tablespoon fuller's earth
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon mashed papaya

Honey Facial Mask

Perhaps the best facial mask known to man is pure and simple honey. Dip a cloth in warm water and dab it on your face to open the pores. Smear on honey, and leave it for 15 to 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water, then splash cold water to close the pores. Use once a week.

Orange Yogurt Mask

1 teaspoon plain yogurt
¼ cup juice of an orange

Stir to mix and apply it to your face. The sensation is both cool and relaxing. Leave on for five minutes, and then rinse. If you are feeling sluggish, this is the perfect mask for you. The yogurt will cleanse and nourish your skin, and the orange will nourish it with vitamin C.

White Nails

Use a common whitening toothpaste. Try scrubbing your nails with Pearl Drops, it will clear up the stains and make them shiny.
Soak your nails in water with lemon juice or lemon slices. The lemon acts as an astringent and will strip away stains. Once your hands are dry, you'll only need to put on a couple of coats of a clear topcoat

Wrinkle Remover

Green Thompson seedless grapes was one of the elements in those big time expensive wrinkle creams. All you do is cut a grape in half and gently crush it on your face and neck. Make sure that you get the "crows-feet" and the lines around your mouth. Leave it on for 20 minutes; rinse with tepid water and pat dry. Repeat it daily and you will see the results.
