I alway's try to look after my skin, i come from ladie's that have very good skin, my lovely nan was 83 years old when she passed and her skin was like velvet, i never knew her to have a bath or use any beauty product's on her skin, she would strip wash every morning with soap and water.Nan's values were pre war, the eldest of 7 children, a very working class family, not much to go around, the fact that her mother was a wonderful cook saved them from going hungary. Nan was a young mother when the 2nd world war broke out and she never forgot the rationing and how they survived with so little.
My mum has lovely skin and thankfully i have been blessed with skin i am more than happy to have, but, just lately it's felt dry. I made a conscious effort to drink more water, not sit in the sun etc.
Well i looked in my new book Mrs Dunwoody and there she wrote a homemade facial treatment, a recipe that is year's old so i gave it a go!!
You chop up half a cupful of cucumber (i skinned mine first),
half a cup of advocado ( i scooped the soft flesh out),
2 tablespoon's of milk powder,
1 egg white.
Make sure it is blended well,
