Today's Hints:

Soothe rashy skin with a lavender shower tablet

When infused with steam from the shower, lavender's anti-inflammatory properties envelope skin to calm irritation while compounds in the herb shrink dilated blood vessels to reduce ruddiness.

Mix 1/2 cup sunflower oil, 1 cup of baking soda, 1 cup of citric acid, 1/2 cup of cornstarch and 1/4 cup of dried lavender. Press the mix into an ice cube tray and let dry overnight. Place a cube on the shower floor and let it do its magic.

Battle blemishes with a baking soda facial

Baking soda absorbs excess oil on the skin while gently exfoliating the dead cells that exacerbate breakouts on the face and body. Plus, the anti-inflammatory powder helps reduce the redness and swelling that accompanies acne.

Mix 2 tsp. of baking soda and 2 tsp. of water. Apply to blemishes and let sit for 2 minutes before rinsing.

Restore luster with a yogurt-lemon face mask

Lactic acid-rich yogurt dissolves any dulling, dead layers of ashy skin while its fats deeply hydrate the complexion. And lemon juice's vitamin C repairs damaged cells. The result is a lustrous, dewy glow in no time.

Combine 2 Tbs. of full-fat plain yogurt and 3 tsp. of lemon juice. Apply to the face and let sit for 5 minutes before rinsing.
