New You ; Winter Skin Care

It’s Tuesday and the weather here is Cold and Rainy. With the Heat on my hubby dry skin acts up. So today is all about dry skin help from home.

Lotion Bars

  • 4 oz Shea butter
  • 4 oz coconut butter
  • 4 oz bees wax

I use a Glass Pyrex measuring cup to melt all my ingredients in the microwave. About 30 second at a time. The bees wax will melt the slowest. Then after everything is mixed- Pour into plastic ice trays or small molds.

Oatmeal and Milk Bath

The combination of oatmeal and dried milk is a natural way to reduce irritation and redness that comes with dry skin. Soaking in a scoop full of this homemade recipe will hydrate, exfoliate and smooth skin while being a super relaxing spa-like experience at the same time from the essential oils.

Banana Face Mask ; dry skin

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil


  • Mash banana with a fork in a small-medium size bowl.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and blend together.
  • Apply to all areas of your face and leave on for 15-20 minutes.
  • Rinse off with warm water.

Avocado Hair mask

  • ½ mashed ripe avocado
  • ½ tsp olive oil
  • 3 drops rosemary or lavender essential oil


  • Combine all ingredients
  • Massage into hair and scalp, concentrating on the ends
  • Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse well

Tips :

  • I look for molds in the Candy sections in the big box stores. Make sure you mark them for Craft use.
  • Need supplies: You can buy online, Hobby Lobby or even local Grocery store ( Oils)
  • My local supplies : The Dollar store ethnic sections.
