Naturally Clear News, Issue #005 -- December 2009
December 12, 2009
Hello Friends!

Welcome to our December Naturally Clear News update. I'm feeling a bit stressed out today, as many are at this time of year, and so I hope our newsletter can help you and me both to relax and have some fun!! :-)

We had 18 degrees below zero weather here earlier this week, which caused a number of problems in our area. Water pipes froze, (yes, ours too) and our elderly next door neighbor lost his house to a fire when he tried to warm his frozen pipes.

I am still recovering from the experience of going out on my porch on Thursday, trying to relax a bit since the temperature had warmed up finally, and then seeing a massive wall of flames and smoke erupting across the street! Thankfully no one was hurt, and our neighbors all pull together to help one another.

Today it's over 50 degrees out and like springtime!

I hope you are well {!firstname_fix}, no matter what challenges life may be bringing you. Please let me know what you think about our latest news!

New Home Recipes for Sensitive Skin

Sometimes when you can't find products that will work well on your skin, it is easier, and less expensive to make your own! These are some of the newest skin care home recipes we found this month. Remember to skin test these first to make sure they will work for you!

Aloe Vera and Honey Facial Mask

Soothing, healing, moisturizing, with natural exfoliants! Great for winter OR summer weather!

Mix equal amounts of organic honey and pure aloe vera gel and apply to your face. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse off with cool water. Can be used daily and stored in the refridgerator to maintain freshness

Gentle Strawberry Exfoliating Mask

Provides both moisturizing and also natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids which exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin.

Blend together an equal amount of organic strawberries with organic, full fat yogurt. You won't need a lot, so you can mix by hand although it is a smoother mixture if you put in the blender.

Apply to a clean face, and if your sensitive skin can tolerate the strawberries well, relax or lie down for a few minutes.

Rinse gently by splashing warm water on your face and using a face cloth to remove any remaining mask.

Your skin will be moist, fresh and radiant!

Natural Skin Lightening Facial Scrub

Mix a small amount (a teaspoon or half tablespoon) of fresh squeezed lemon juice with enough organic sugar that the sugar is not dissolved.

Apply gently to your face. Use regularly to bleach facial hair, lighten skin and age spots, and to prevent acne.

See You Next Year!!
