Aloe Vera Lip Gloss Recipe

1 tsp. Aloe Vera gel

1/2 tsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. petroleum jelly
Directions

Combine the ingredients in a small glass bowl until well mixed. Heat for about 2 minutes in the microwave. Stir and pour into a small container. Let cool completely before use.

Relaxing Facial Recipe

1 beaten egg (unclogs pores)

1 carrot (cooked and mashed)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 avocado (peeled and mashed)
3 tbsp honey
Directions

Combine the egg, mashed carrot, cream, avocado and honey in a bowl. Make sure the carrots are cooled down before you add them, or they will start to cook the egg. Stir everything together with a fork until they are well combined. Of course you could also throw everything in the blender and combine it that way.

Spread the mixture all over your face, being careful not to get it in your eyes or mouth. Leave it on for about 10 minutes, then rinse the mask off with plenty of warm water.

Hair Mask

  • 1/2 cup of ripe avocado
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 banana (I prefer it not to be too ripe)
  • 1 egg yolk

Directions:

Massage it in to your hair and especially your scalp. Cover it with a shower cap. You can also use a gallon size baggie in a pinch. Wait 45 minutes to an hour then rinse it off thoroughly and shampoo as usual.

 

Acne Clearing Mask

Mash together 1/4 cup fresh strawberries with 1/4 cup sour cream or yogurt, spread on clean skin, let sit for 15 minutes, and then rinse well. Strawberries are a natural source of salicylic acid (the same stuff found in acne products).

Julia Roberts Ad Banned Because of Excessive Airbrushing!

Julia Roberts‘ L’Oréal advertisement for Lancôme has been banned in the United Kingdom for excessive airbrushing.

A Maybelline campaign featuring Christy Turlington was also pulled.

The watchdog Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) upheld complaints from politician Jo Swinson, who argues against “overly perfected and unrealistic images” of women in advertisements.

Roberts’ ad promotes Teint Miracle foundation, and was shot by famed photographer Mario Testino. Turlington’s is for an anti-ageing line called The Eraser.

Swinson claims the faces in the digitally altered photos were “not representative of the results the product could achieve.”

“Pictures of flawless skin and super-slim bodies are all around, but they don’t reflect reality,” said Swinson. “Excessive airbrushing and digital manipulation techniques have become the norm, but both Christy Turlington and Julia Roberts are naturally beautiful women who don’t need retouching to look great.”

The ASA agreed, ruling that the Roberts and Turlington ads breached the standards for exaggeration.

“On the basis of the evidence we have received we could not conclude that the ad image accurately illustrated what effect the product could achieve.”
