The most complex skin is your face. So coming up with a good homemade skin care recipes face may take a little time. When we come by skin care tips we will be adding them. No one product will work for everything. The oily skin around the nose, dry skin on your forehead & cheeks, and next week our aging skin.
When you find a product that works, it may only work for a while. The skin can become sensitive to the product. Even natural skin care products. Or the product becomes old. Keep in mind that you only use a small amount on your face, so they tend to stay with you a long time.
So Wayne'r says lets make our own!!!

You want to dampen the oatmeal first then add the witch hazel. Then add the water to make it moist. Apply to your face with an upward and outward circuler motion. Rinse with lots of warm water. This recipe is good for all kinds of skin. If you have dry skin add a little oil. You can also add a mashed bannana for more nourishment.
For the oatmeal and cornmeal mask, use equal parts of cornmeal and oatmeal, and just enough warm tap water to turn into a paste.

Wayne'rs homemade skin care recipe face is
4 oz Shea Butter
4 oz Jojoba oil
When I'm flying in open cockpit airplanes there is a lot of wind.
For a body butter I will add
1 oz beeswax
3 teaspoons of an essential oil.
I don't like essential oils in my face butters.
Your eyes reflect your physical as well as your emotional health. If you are tired and run down they look dull and red; if your liver is upset they have a yellow look to them.
When making preparations for the eyes always sterilize your utensils. Use fresh decoctions of herbs, not infusions when making eye baths. The herbs should ideally be simmered for about 20 minutes.
Two herbs that I use are Fennel and Chamomile
Fennel is an ancient remedy for strengthening the sight, and used as an eyewash for soreness, tiredness, infections of the eyes.
Chamomile also makes a good antiseptic eyewash.
When it is allergy season, I take the time to make up these washes.

The Natural Beauty & Bath book
Farmer's Kitchen Secret Mask
2 egg whites, chilled
1/8 teaspoon cornstarch
Whip the egg whites until they form peaks; then slowly add the cornstarch. Apply the mixture immediately to your face, leaving it on for 20 minutes, then rinsing it off. This is very effective for tightening the skin for a smoother face and youthful look.
My first homemade skin care was lip balms or you can also call them lip butters.
Start with 4oz of shea butter, 4oz of sesame oil (for the UVblock) or you can use 4oz of sweet almond oil, 1/2 oz or 1 tablespoon of beeswax.
Melt these together and then add 2 teaspoon of essential oil. We like tangerine and cherry.
Put into small jars or fill into lip balm tubes. They make a great stocking stuffers.
Are you the type of person who needs to reapply lip balm every two seconds? Cut the costs of your chapstick addiction by making your own honey vanilla lip balm with just a few simple ingredients.

Well my two boy's Ben and Cam will not eat their Carrots. As for Wayne'r I can take them or leave them, that is cooked. But carrots are rich in vitamin A and make a wonderful facial. You will need 1 or 2 cooked mashed carrots, 1/2 teaspoon wheat germ oil, 1 to 2 teaspoons honey and 2 drops geranium oil, you can leave out the geranium oil if you want. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and right on to your face. Leave it on for 20 minutes the rinse off with cool water. This recipe is good for teaching the kids to clean up the kitchen and gives you a reason to stay in the kitchen to make sure it is done right. Best of all, you get a FACIAL!!!
Corn Flour Based Facial Scrub
When used as a base to make facial masks, corn flour is an excellent ingredient if you're dealing with oily skin. Corn flour picks up oil from the skin and traps it, leaving the skin moisturized but with diminished oiliness and shine free.
This mask is extremely easy to make.
2 teaspoons of corn flour 1 egg white
Mix this two and apply on the face. Wash off after 15 minutes or until dry. While washing, use circular motion so that you can exfoliate the skin and help the circulation of its deeper layers. First apply warm and then cold water.

Skin Patch Test
From Jeanne Rose
from the Herbal Body Book, Jeanne Rose
The Patch Test
If you have sensitive skin or a history of allergies, then by all means use a patch test to test your relative sensitivity to the new ingredients. To try out a new store bought cosmetic, a homemade cosmetic, or any new plant that you are unfamiliar with when making your own cosmetics, make a paste of the plant with water and apply to your forearm in an area about the size of a quarter. Let the paste dry there and apply a loose band-aide. If there is no reaction within twenty four hours, go ahead and use the plant or cosmetic. Apply creams and lotions to the forearm directly, apply band-aide for twenty four hours and check for reaction. By all means, keep all alien substances away from the eyes.
