Beauty Secret #1 Face Scrub by SHELISSA

Posted on July 18, 2012 by Shelissa Kearney | 6 Comments

 I receive LOTS of emails at SHELISSA ORGANICS about making at-home spa and beauty treatments. Being a fashion model with Wilhelmina, having clear skin care is important to my career.  Facials and spa treatments can be expensive and the chemicals can be harsh on sensitive skin, not to mention not healthy for you.  A favorite at-home FACIAL SCRUB RECIPE that I do once a week was given to me by an esthetician from Paris, who has AMAZING skin. This treatment creates a mini micro-dermabrasion effect so be very careful and don't overdo it. Here is how to get beautiful, radiant, fresh looking skin...

You will need:

baking powder
facial cleanser
moisturizer (lightweight for summer, heavy cream for winter)

How to:

Splash face with warm water 10 times to remove surface debris, leaving face damp (this is important)
Pour 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder in the palm of one of your hands. Use the fingers of your free hand, pick up the baking powder on the tips of your finger and gently spread evenly over the face.
Slowly and gently spread the baking powder in a circular motion evenly across the face. Avoid the eye area, and the sensitive skin in the folds of the nose (sides of the nose), and lip area.
Squeeze a dallop of facial cleanser in your hands and slowly work the cleanser into your skin, adding water to your face as needed to dilute the cleanser so it spreads easier.
Follow with a warm washcloth and gently wipe off the cleanser, baking powder, and sloughed off skin. Soak cotton pad with toner, and wipe over face once. 
Splash face 10 times with cold water, blot dry, and follow up with a moisturizer

I refrain from wearing base or powder for 24 hours to allow time for my skin to b-r-e-a-t-h-e, and the new cells to turn over. Follow this facial scrub regiment for a month, applying once a week, and you will see a big difference in the appearance of your skin and fine lines. The baking powder facial is a remedy for acne, and can be used prior to shaving your legs to prevent ingrown hairs!

Here's to glowing skin!

You can’t make it grow any faster or tikcher. It will as you mature if it is programmed into your DNA. Just shave for now. It doesn’t look good when teen aged guys try to grow a beard or facial hair. And most adults who can make decisions that can affect a young guy’s future, whether he likes it or not, don’t like to see a 16 year old with a beard or goatee or long hair. Sometimes a guy doesn’t have a second chance to make a good first impression. Like when he is pulled over by an ex marine crew cut cop and he can give a warning or a costly ticket that will drive already costly insurance rates into the stratosphere.

Shannon you rock! Keep at it. We can only do what we can do in our little corenr of the world. I live in Northern California where organics are abundant yet needing to make a quick trip to the local chain grocery and wanting to pickup some organic veggie of some kind is still a challenge. Yes, you can get organic from another country. We are still a land of plenty and we can produce enough healthy food to feed all and an at affordable cost. It’s women like you that remain persistent to what they know is best that will turn the tides. ALL SHIPS rise on a rising tide. I am encouraged when I read posts like yours. Thank you.

that I look extremely well for my age, not a wlnrkie as yet and I am in my 50 s. I also get regular checkups and come away with accolades from my dr’s. Most of my extended family members seem to have high blood pressure, are diabetic or prediabetic, heart condition, etc., all kinds of illnesss, plus obesity. They still don’t get the correlation between eating organic and disease, also using organic products. I wish people would wake up. By the time they do, it will be too late for them and their families. I applaud you Shannon. Keeping doing what is right and best for yourself, family and the environment. You may start something in your area after awhile, then let’s see who’s ridiculed.

Review by Linda Freitag for Rating: I cannot expesrs enough how pleased I am with this dog food. I feed my 11 year old German Shepard, and my two year old Pittie Girl this food every day, and the benefits are astounding. For most of my Shepards life I fed her a well known, vet recommended food, and yet she always had stomach problems. Trying many things, it was not until I rescued, and I should really say she rescued me, and the dog food recall, that I began doing research on brands of food. After a long investigation, I decided on Newman’s Own, not only because there had been no recall on the food, but because of the ingredients, and that the proceeds going to charity. Now, choosing this brand, would mean that I would have to order it online, because my local stores did not carry it, but that was all right with me, because not only do I enjoy online ordering, but I am an older, disabled woman, and getting to the store and hauling in packages is very hard for me. Well, I want to tell you, My 11 year old thrives on this food, with no more digestive issues, and a beautiful white coat, and she loves eating it with vigor. My two year old American Pit Bull Terrier, another love of my life, also thrives on this food, has the most beautiful shiny coat ever, and people say all the time how beautiful her coat is. I do spoil my fur kids, but their health and well being is my number one priority. I have just recently switched over feeding my 4 cats Newman’s Own cat food, both dry and canned food, and since then, I have noticed the difference in the elimination of hair balls. I know that I am truly a pet lover, but I believe that if you love your pets and want only the best well being for them, unnecessary medical issues, and all around good health, a good balanced, safe, natural food is the way to go. I highly recommend Newman’s Own dog and cat food. I also feed my two dogs Newman’s Own biscuits as treats.

Hi Sannysidup! I’m glad you agree with me on cleansing wipes! I tried the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oils in the past but unfrtounately they contain minaral oil. I favour the Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser from Liz Earle, have you tried it? I love removing the cleanser with a muslin cloth, it makes my skin feel smoth, soft and clean.

I try my best to research ads berfoe posting them on my blog. When I shop, I even print coupons from Bargainista instead of the original e-mails I receive from retailers – ‘cause I won’t share something I wouldn’t use myself. I apologize for any problems you experienced as a result of this or any coupon you receive at Bargainista. As a general rule, you should always check with your local retailer too. Regardless, it would have been good business for M-A-C to accept your coupon instead of turning you away.

Honey & Beeswax

     When the founder of Shelissa Organics was a child, her fondest memories are of spending time on her family's farm on the Chesapeake Bay learning how to harvest honey from the hives with her grandfather. It harkens back to the days when children ran through fields until sunset, running into the house with handfuls of wildflowers, rare stones collected in their pockets, and dirt on their hands. To this day, she drizzles honey on her breakfast or in her tea everyday.

Honey and beeswax have long been documented for healing sore throats and for boosting the immune system. Seasonal allergy suffers are wise to eat local honey to reduce allergies and a teaspoon in a cup of warm milk can calm a cough. For centuries, honey has been used as an exfoliant for the body and gentle enough to use on the face and scalp. For 19 years Shelissa Organics® has crafted extraordinary products with ethically and sustainably harvested beeswax and locally found ingredients. Our time-honored process and unique formulas produce goods without parabens, petroleum, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, or non-GMO ingredients.
