(IMPORTANT NOTE: A LITTLE GLITCH THIS MORNING AND TODAY’S POST AND SATURDAY’S POSTED AT THE SAME TIME. I FIXED THAT, BUT THE EMAIL STILL PROMOTED TOMORROW’S STYLE TIPS. THAT HAS BEEN TAKEN DOWN UNTIL TOMORROW…SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION!!)

Happy Friday, friends!  Today I want to share with you how I look healthier with homemade skincare.

I never imagined how good this simple, easy homemade skincare could make my face, hands and arms look…younger and healthier.

I am glad I tried it and will share the process with you today.

Let’s get started in our kitchens……

LOOK HEALTHIER WITH HOMEMADE SKINCARE: WHAT TO DO

After reading several articles and listening to testimonies of women who use lemon and olive oil as a homemade skincare product, I decided to give it a try.

This was about six weeks ago.  

Since then, I honestly have had more people shocked at my age than ever before.

Before, the comments were occasional…lately more have asked…what are you doing to look so much younger than 69?

The only thing I have changed is using this homemade skincare, and, of course, eating healthier and losing weight…which I know is a huge contributing factor.

But, I am sold on using my homemade skincare daily…and I use it at night.

First. let’s make this homemade skincare….this is all you need.

A jar, a grate,  fresh lemons, and EXTRA VIRGIN olive oil…apparently it does matter that you use EXTRA VIRGIN olive oil and not the regular, cooking olive oil.

Grate the peel of two lemons and place in the bottom of the jar.  Cover this with the EXTRA VIRGIN olive oil. 

Then place the jar in a dark place for five days.

That’s it!

At night, I cleanse my face, then I use just a little of the oil and pat it into my face and neck.

I try to do this about an hour before bedtime so that it will soak into my skin and not go on my pillow.

After about 30 minutes, I still use my Genucel Anti-Wrinkle Treatment, Genucel eye cream, and Genucel Neck Cream on top of my homemade skincare.

Genucel is all natural and plant based so it blends nicely with the lemon & oil….and on sale now.

Final use at night of the homemade skincare lemon & oil, is to put it on my hands and lower arms.

It is amazing how good they look in the morning if you do this consistently.

I am a fan…and I love the fresh lemon aroma.

One note:  The olive oil bottle you are looking at in the picture is what I had on hand unopened when I decided to do this…I did not purchase this brand just for the homemade skincare.

HOMEMADE SKINCARE: MY FIRST SUMMER PROJECT

Since I am turning 70 this summer, I decided to focus on trying new experiences.

Small or large…I want to try things I have never tried before.

Making my own homemade skincare is the first one…I have never done this before.

I am not planning on bungie jumping or leaping from a plane, but I want to be purposeful to try some new things and to look for experiences I have never had before.

Of course, I will share them with you here.

Another first for me is to wear silk tops more than cotton or linen going into the summer.

I have shared with you my new love of washable silk discovered at a local boutique.

These silk tops are so much cooler in the heat…and do not cling to the places where I do not want cling…they lay nicely in a flattering way.

So, I heard from a couple of you that you would like to find the washable silk tops online since this boutique does not sell online.

Here is what I discovered in my search!  There is one print top that says Dry Clean Only, but I thought it was pretty for autumns so I left it in the presentation….

This new experience has led to a big change in my wardrobe…I am a fan!  I haven’t tried Quince, but plan to at some point this summer.

So, I want to ask you two things today…have you tried a homemade skincare concoction…what was it and what were the results…then, have you tried washable silk, what do you think?

We would love to hear your thoughts…and, of course, do you plan new experiences for this summer like I do…would you share?

There is so much here, but I hope it is helpful to you…these are experiences I am living right now.
