Martha Stewart Show with Eva Scrivo: Is your skin oily or dry try Home Made Beauty

I recently did a video for AOL's Styledash.com on Home Made Beauty, I used honey, a banana, and my coffee grinds. And here are some more Home Made Beauty tips and advice:

To keep your skin looking great and hydrated you can use natural food items found right in your home, kitchen. In tight times we can still have great looking skin.

Watching Martha Stewart is a good thing and today I learned a few more at Home Beauty tricks.

I liked Eva Scrivo's tips!

I love Masks, and this Avocado mask is great!

First to do a mask you first wash your face, and put on a mask and then wash your face again about 15 minutes later.

Here’s how to make it yourself:

Cut up an Avocado, yes cut up an actually avocado, put it in a tupperware bowl, next comes natural oils and you should use Borage oil. Then smash together in the bowl, or use a blender.

You can apply the mask with a brush. A Makeup brush. Don't forget that natural nature elements are great for the skin.

To get great skin, you have to take care of it, you can’t just slop on your makeup and go and run out the door without taking care of your skin. Each morning I tone my skin, and then moisturize and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes and then I start my beauty routine, and at night I exfoliate each night. And then moisturize before I go to bed, the moisture/ face lotion should be easy to apply, and absorb quickly.

Beautiful Skin: Before you put on your makeup you should moisturize, you can spray water on your face or use moisture. It is important to keep your skin moisturized; dry skin will also make you look older and even gray!

Here is some more insight I learned today on the Martha Stewart Show:

Homemade Hair Mask
1. Add a few tablespoons of warm sesame oil to a few tablespoons of neem oil.
2. Apply oil to scalp, and massage into skin.
3. Brush through with a boar-bristle brush.
4. Wrap hair in a hot towel for 10 minutes or keep on overnight. If you keep the hair mask on overnight, use an inexpensive pillowcase that you don't mind getting messy.

I think I have a pillowcase that I can spare, my hair is worth it!
