With a kitchen cupboard full of ingredients, Natural Beauty Alchemy (Countryman Press, 2015) will have you making your own skin care products in no time. Fifi M. Maacaron presents 100 easy-to-make recipes for organic health and beauty products, formulated just for you. The following excerpt is for a Winter Rescue Mask to protect and treat dry skin.

This book can be purchased from the Mother Earth Living store: Natural Beauty Alchemy.

Weather aggression is always noticeable, not only on hands, legs, and lips, but also on the face. This mask contains full-fat cream cheese, which will restore some of the skin’s lipid mantle and help protect skin against weather-induced dryness.

The remaining ingredients will boost skin’s vitality and revive it. While wheat germ oil is extremely nourishing, moisturizing, and anti-aging, grapefruit juice will load your skin with antioxidants and vitamin C for a refreshed and younger-looking skin. Adding egg white is optional but strongly recommended if you wish to have proteins in your mask, as well. Prepare this formula when your skin feels dry and tight, or routinely during winter and harsh weather months.



Winter Rescue Face Mask

Ingredients:

• 2 ounces (60 ml) full-fat cream cheese, softened
• 1/2 teaspoon honey
• 20 drops (1 ml) wheat germ oil
• 20 drops (1 ml) grapefruit juice
• 1 egg white (optional)
• gauze strips (optional)
