Organic Home Spa: Cleansing Scrub for Oily/Combination Skin

Organic beauty expert, Jessa Blades, shows you how to exfoliate and balance your oily or combination skin with a homemade scrub, using Kahina Facial Cleanser, baking soda, and oatmeal.  Use this scrub twice weekly to remove any excess oil and dead skin after sun exposure. 

The avenanthramides in oatmeal help soothe and calm skin irritation, and saponins have a foaming effect, which help to lift oil and dirt from the skin. Baking soda boosts the effects of oatmeal, and neutralizes skin acidity, reduces redness and its antiseptic properties help heal and prevent skin from infection.  Its fine, but hard texture allows it to gently, but effectively, remove dead skin cells.

Organic Home Spa: Treatment Mask for Dry Skin

Jessa Blades, organic beauty expert, shows you how to make an organic, at-home face mask for dry skin.  No one denies the importance of maintaining hydration levels for all skin types.  Your skin can get dehydrated from travel, inadequate water consumption, exposure to the elements, etc. so use this mask once a week or whenever skin feels taut and needs a drink.  The avocados and argan oil are high in essential fatty acids & vitamin E, so this mask is particularly suited to dryer or mature skin types that need soothing, richer moisture.  We hope you enjoy!
