  • Use skim milk powder in place of cold cream to wash your face. It is great for all skin types. Be sure to rinse your skin thoroughly after use.

  • If you wish to give yourself a head to toe moisturizing treatment, or a facial to alleviate dry skin, purchase a light, virgin olive oil from the local grocer's. Almond oil or avocado oil may also be used for fantastic results. Put a few drops of the oil of your choice in a small container and add a few drops of your favorite natural scent. Lavender is great. After your bath or shower and while your skin is still moist, massage the oil into your skin and around your fingernails and cuticles. When finished, you can run your fingers through your hair, if desired. This treatment nourishes skin, hair and nails.

  • While running your bath, pour one cup of powdered skim milk into the bath water. Milk gently exfoliates your skin and leaves it soft.

  • Relax in an oatmeal bath while it works magic on your skin. Pour 1/2 cup of whole oats into a piece of cheesecloth and fasten securely. Add to your bath water. Oatmeal softens and exfoliates your skin.

  • Give yourself a moisturizer treatment just like the one that you'd receive at the spa. Wash your face well and while it is still wet, rub a small amount of petroleum jelly into your skin.
