Lets Get to It!

Papaya, Yogurt and Honey Facial Treatment  

Keep the peel on if you’d like a stronger mask or remove it if you have sensitive skin. Place the papaya, a tablespoon of unflavored yogurt and 2 teaspoons of raw honey (Manuka honey is best) into a good blender and blend until it’s smooth. (if you don’t have a good blender, then i suggest you get one. Their really useful not only for facials but for smoothies, soups, pestos, and hundreds of other great recipes!  My blender is the 1000 watt blender from cuisinart and i absolutely love it) After everything is nice and smooth, pour the mixture out into a bowl and head to your room with a towel. If you have long hair, it might be worth tying back. Put the towel over your pillow and gently apply the mix onto your face avoiding your eyes. Now just relax for 10-15 minutes. Put on some music, read a book, watch tv, play angry birds. Enjoy yourself! Keep in mind that your skin might feel a little tingly but this shouldn’t be painful. if it is rinse off IMMEDIATELY and moisturize your face, preferable with aloe-vera gel. When 15 minutes have gone by, head to the bathroom and rinse that ice goo down the drain. Your skin should feel refreshed and happy, thanks to those oh so wonderful papayas.  Follow with a toner if you use one and a natural, chemical free moisturizer. Alternatively, try avocado oil as a face moisturizer for much deeper penetration. if you decide that you like it, use it once or maybe twice a week, and soon you should see some real improvement.

Papaya Peel Rub

      For a simpler, on the go way to use papaya to improve your skin, try keeping the peel after you’ve scooped out the pulp and yummy insides. Rub the papaya skin directly onto your face, in the evening (or morning) before showering and leave it on for a minute or two. It feels better if you shower it off while it’s still a bit moist, rather than letting it dry tight. This simple rub can be used not just on your face, but can be used on any part of your body that you think needs improving and its super easy to apply. People even say that this can diminish age spots, small acne scars and blemishes and can even be of great relief for sun damaged skin.
Hope this helped you out guys! Please enjoy! Comment and let me know if you tried it or if you have any other great facials and homemade remedies you know about. Id love to know!!

Exercise for Those Who Hate It! Get Active Everyday!

Constantly busy. No time. Too much homework. Your favorite show is on. Don’t worry, I’ve used the same excuses and i feel your pain. I hate to exercise just as much as the next person. Need some sneaky tips on easy exercises you can do every day? Look no further!

1. Take the stairs. I know people always say take the stairs take the stairs but hey! its adequate advice. From now on make it a point to park on the bottom level of the parking garage and walk to the top instead of taking the elevator. Make it a point to walk up and down those cozy stairs in your house five times ever morning. its great for the legs, glutes, and if you do it enough it can be great cardio!

2. Hanging with friends? Get active! Whenever i make a date with my friends we go see a movie, or go to lunch. Why don’t you do something active! Take a hike! Go rollerblading! Take a trip to the local ice-rink! Plus, exercising with friends if better then doing it alone.  Make a point of getting active and having fun. Think outside of the box.

3. Pace. Are you constantly on the phone like me? Well a sneaky way to get some easy exercise is to pace when your on the phone. Instead of sitting on the couch painting your toesies, stand up and zone out. walk in circles. walk from one end of the house to the other. it seems silly but its easy and you barely know your doing it.

There are lots of other sneaky tips about exercise and i just want to give creds to my absolute favorite you-tuber Cassandra Bankson. 🙂 These are her tips and i just thought id share them with you.
