Good anti aging skin bath recipes are not easily found. Most bath recipes are of course good for the skin, but rarely does a recipe have so many anti aging ingredients such as this one.
Pat, who sent us a wonderful home facial recipe shares a great recipe:
1/2 cup pure lanolin
1 tablespoon almond oil
1 tablespoon walnut oil
1/4 cup aloe vera juice
1 tablespoon lecithin
1 tablespoon water
800 IU Vitamin E (open capsules with a pin and squeeze the contents).
For this you want a blender or you can use a stick blender in a narrow container for best results.
I have a Bullet and use the cross blade and small cup.
Dissolve the lecithin in the water.
Place all ingredients in blender, bullet or small bowl and blend very thoroughly. It will separate if not properly blended, but it can be re-blended as needed.
If possible, store in a dark glass container to keep out light.
After washing, apply this to face or other skin in a very light coating.
Always apply a moisturizer to freshly washed skin. It can add very little moisture but it helps keep what you have in the skin. This mixture can add a little protein to older skin from the aloe and the Vitamin E is an antioxidant. Feel free to experiment with other oils if you prefer or have allergies.
This recipe is filled with awesome ingredients, where do I even begin?
Lanolin is a waxy substance often used in skin care for its fantastic waterproof properties. Almond oil adds much needed moisture while walnut oil provides anti oxidant properties that prevents the free radicals from attacking the skin and thus reversing or alleviating the aging process.
Aloe vera is one of the best moisturizers around while lecithin, as a fatty substance, adds to the effect. Finally, Vitamin E is one of the most powerful (and commonly used in skin care treatments) moisturizers that nature has to offer.
