Buttermilk and Beauty

Ok while I think of it I want to share how buttermilk can help give you naturally amazing skin.  I usually bake with buttermilk but it’s a fantastic beauty product.  Once which I should really use more.  I have some in the fridge and will be definitely trying them out very shortly!

Buttermilk Facial Wash

Add 2 teaspoons of honey and six teaspoons of buttermilk to a large mug of hot water.  Mix thoroughly.  Use cotton wool pads to apply it to your face.  Leave for as long as you want.  Then wash of with warm water.  It will help keep you skin silky smooth and feeling fresh.

Keep it in a jar in the fridge.

Buttermilk Gently Facial Scrub

Mix 2 tablespoons of buttermilk with some oatmeal.  Add enough to make a nice mush.  Apply to your face and gently massage.  Relax for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water.
