DIY Face Masks and Body Scrub Recipes

Welcome to our blog we are so thankful for all your visits, likes and shares without you we wouldn’t be here. On week 68 we are sharing information on DIY Face Masks and Body Scrubs.

There are many products from various cosmetic companies in the world for you to choose from that are widely available in stores and online. This means you can afford to be picky when it comes to buying products that you’re going to use on your skin. Everyone’s skin is different and requires different care, but one thing is certain: exfoliation is a key component to beautiful glowing skin.

The market is flooded with skin products loaded with unhealthy chemicals, so it can be tricky to find products for the health-conscious consumer. Skincare manufacturers are forced to add artificial flavors, dyes, chemicals, and preservatives to prolong the shelf life of their products. Many of these ingredients may cause irritation, inflammation, and allergic reactions. So, should reading labels and selecting the right skin product require a master’s degree in biology?



Thankfully, the negative effects of additives and preservative chemicals in store-bought scrubs can all be avoided!



In this article, you won’t be making commercial-grade scrubs found in stores or the ones you have tried in the past, such as coffee, oatmeal, sugar, etc. Instead, you will learn about lesser-known scrub recipes with organic ingredients that you already have in your fridge. Each ingredient has four recipes you can try that will do absolute wonders for your skin.

These proven recipes are effective for any skin type, and the components were given to us by nature itself! You don’t have to head to the beauty superstore or go online to get your hands on these scrubs; you can make them yourself at home.


Always perform a patch test before you use any skincare, including the ones you make at home. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the fruits, vegetables, or herbs that are used in these recipes before you apply or rub them on your skin.




Strawberries contain salicylic acid, which is a beta hydroxy acid useful for problematic skin. This makes it a wonderful ingredient for people who are battling with acne and blemishes. The powerful antioxidants in strawberries help skin stay healthy and radiant, especially improving the texture and appearance of aging skin by promoting the production of new cells. Not only are these strawberry recipes great for exfoliating skin, but they also have a pleasant aromatic property that will make your skin routine more enjoyable. This scrub is worthy of you!



Strawberries and skin



A high amount of vitamin C found in strawberries also helps to lighten the skin. One serving of strawberries has over 50% of your daily value of vitamin C that is a really good amount. When used topically, this amount of vitamin C is said to help reduce the appearance of dark spots while also helping to make dull skin look more refreshing and radiant.
I’ve dabbled in DIY beauty treatments myself all the time I love the idea that I can make a fresh product and apply it to my skin‚ the sweet beautiful be
“Strawberries, or fragriaria chiloensis extract, it is wonderful at hydrating the skin due to the high amount of carbohydrates it contains and skin protectant due to the antioxidants,” says Dr. James Heskett, holistic MD, author of The Well Path and consultant for HydroPeptide. “It contains alpha-lipoic acid which is a potent antioxidant, which slows the aging of collagen elastin. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant as well as being a key player in collagen synthesis.”
In fact, strawberries give vitamin C superstar oranges a run for their money they have more of it. “It’s different than orange vitamin C, which is more acidic, and therefore more exfoliating and less hydrating,” says Dr. Heskett.
Varika P. even worked with skin-care brand Volition to capture her fave DIY beauty ingredient in the ease of serum for your skin’s benefit. You can take the strawberry slices, apply to your face, and it would leave a thin, red, serum-like film it makes the skin glow. Every time, I always noticed an improvement immediately after—my face would glow and look so much brighter.”Strawberries are acidic in nature and this is effective to remove the excess sebum on the skin.

 Photon Light Therapy


What is a photon?

Welcome to our blog we are so thankful for all your visits, likes and shares without you we wouldn’t be here.

On week 67 we are sharing information about photon, what it is, how it works and where to get some home machines, I been using photon machines for years and love them is machines for the body, facial hair, etc.

We receive questions and requests to blog about it and we wrote this post in a way that even do it has scientific information we still could share information that everyone could understand enjoy and please share and like if you do.


In physics, a photon is a bundle of electromagnetic energy. It is the basic unit that makes up all light. The photon is sometimes referred to as a “quantum” of electromagnetic energy.

Photons are not thought to be made up of smaller particles. They are a basic unit of nature called an elementary particle.




Properties of a Photon

Photons have some basic properties that help define what they are and how they behave. These properties include:
They have zero mass.
They have no electric charge.
They are stable.
They carry energy and momentum which are dependent on the frequency.
They can have interactions with other particles such as electrons.
They can be destroyed or created by many natural processes.
When in empty space, they travel at the speed of light.

Photons behave like particles in that they can interact with matter. In some cases, the energy of the photon is absorbed by the matter. In this case, the extra energy may be emitted as heat. One example of this is the blacktop of the road getting hot in the sun.

Our eyes also interact with photons. When a photon strikes the eye it is turned into electrical energy that is then transmitted to the brain to form an image.

When the energy from photons is absorbed by matter, the matter can emit electrons. This process is called the photoelectric effect. The photoelectric effect is a property of light that is not explained by the theory that light is a wave. This is one of the main reasons that scientists chose to treat light as both a wave and a stream of particles.

What is a Photon Beauty Machine?

Photon  beauty machines are gadgets that you can use at home to help you fight the visible signs of aging and other skin problems such as:

Sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines
Dry and dull skin
Dark spots
Flabby kin
Scarring from acne or stretch marks
Extremely oily skin
Enlarged pores
These devices lift the skin and help make them firmer and smoother. They stimulate the production of collagen to make your skin smooth, toned and invigorated. It is a highly recommended method of keeping your skin vibrant and young-looking as it is non-invasive and less expensive than facelifts, Botox, or facial surgeries.

A photon beauty machine is a hand-held device that uses LED lights (photon) as massage therapy for skin aging and other problems.



How Do Photon Beauty Machines Work?



Photon LED Light

LED (Light-Emitting Diode) lights are used by photon beauty machines as a therapy to fight skin aging. They do this by sending out infrared lights to create heat in different wavelengths and spectrums to penetrate deep down your skin. Once your skin absorbs the lights, the healing begins.

It helps reduce inflammation and removes the bacteria that cause acne. Aside from being a great anti-aging proponent, this is ideal for people who are prone to acne, blackheads, and whiteheads. LED lights come in different colors that have different uses.

RED-generally used for skin healing. It tones down swelling, heals damaged skin, and lessens the chances of scarring. It stimulates the growth of your skin to give you smoother and softer skin.

BLUE-used for the control of oil production. It has calming properties to help ease the signs of stressed skin. Perfect for those with sensitive skin and those prone to acne.

GREEN-this also has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, but it is mainly used for rejuvenating your skin. It fights free radicals and improves your overall texture.





What Are Biophotons?


Biophotons, or ultra-low photon emissions of biological systems, are low electromagnetic waves in the optical range of the spectrum – in other words: light. ALL living cells of plants, animals and human beings emit Biophotons, which can NOT be seen by the naked eye but can be measured by special equipment developed by German researchers.

This light emission is an expression of the functional state of the living organism and its measurement, therefore can be used to assess this state.  After an initial decade and a half of basic research on this discovery, biophysicists of various European and Asian countries are now exploring the MANY interesting applications, which range across such diverse fields as non-invasive early medical diagnosis, food, and water quality testing, chemical and electromagnetic contamination testing, cell communication, and various applications in biotechnology.

According to the Biophoton theory developed on the base of these discoveries the Biophoton light is stored in the cells of the organism – more precisely, in the DNA molecules of their nuclei – and a dynamic web of light constantly released and absorbed by the DNA may connect cell organelles, cells, tissues, and organs within the body and serve as the organism’s main communication network and as the principal regulating instance for ALL life processes. The processes of morphogenesis, growth, differentiation, and regeneration are also explained by the structuring and regulating the activity of the coherent Biophoton field. The holographic Biophoton field of the brain and the nervous system, and maybe even that of the WHOLE organism, may also be the basis of memory and other phenomena of consciousness, as postulated by neurophysiologist Karl Pribram and others. The consciousness-like coherence properties of the Biophoton field are closely related to its base in the properties of the physical vacuum and indicate it’s possible role as an interface to the non-physical realms of mind, psyche, and consciousness.

The discovery of Biophoton emission also lends scientific support to some unconventional methods of healing based on concepts of homeostasis (self-regulation of the organism), such as various somatic therapies, homeopathy, and acupuncture. The “chi” energy flowing in our bodies’ energy channels (meridians), which according to Traditional Chinese Medicine regulates our body functions may be related to node lines of the organism’s Biophoton field. The “prana” of Indian Yoga physiology may be a similar regulating energy force, that has a basis in low, coherent electromagnetic Biophoton fields.

Background Of Biophotons


First discovered in 1923 by Russian medical scientist Professor Alexander G.Gurvich (who named them “mitogenic rays”) and in the 1930s widely researched in Europe and the USA, Biophotons have been rediscovered and backed since the 1970s by ample experimental and theoretical evidence by European scientists. In 1974 German biophysicist Fritz-Albert Popp has proved their existence, their origin from the DNA and later their coherence (laser-like nature), and has developed Biophoton theory to explain their possible biological role and the ways in which they may control biochemical processes, growth, differentiation, etc. Popp’s Biophoton theory leads to MANY startling insights into the life processes and may well provide one of the MAJOR elements of a future theory of life and holistic medical practice based on such an approach. The importance of the discovery has been confirmed by eminent scientists, such as Herbert Froehlich and Nobel laureate Ilya Prigogine. Since 1992, the International Institute of Biophysics, a network of research laboratories in more than 10 countries, based in Germany, is coordinating research in this field of Biophotons, which promises rapid development in the next decade.


Handheld LED Photon Skin Care Device




How is LED Photon Therapy Performed?

One of the best things about this type of therapy is the ease of use and safety, both of which allow it to be done at home. These can be purchased directly from trusted manufacturers or through dermatology offices. When this device is being used at home, it is critical to use it exactly as instructed in the included instructions.

The majority of these devices require treatment sessions to last approximately 30 minutes each time. Most are used twice a day. To use the device, the user simply turns it on and adheres to all instructions in how to apply the treatment to the skin. The handheld devices that are generally sold for home-use actually tend to be more effective than the non-handheld devices often seen in skincare clinics. This is because they are applied directly to the skin which helps to ensure greater absorption.

In many cases, a photosensitizing agent is applied prior to performing a treatment. How long it takes for this agent to absorb and be ready for treatment will depend on the agent used. Most do not take long, so there really is no extra time added when using one of these.





Are There Any Side Effects With LED Photon Therapy?


With this type of therapy, side effects, if they even occur, are minimal. Slight irritation and redness can occur, however, these are generally experienced by those that have sensitive skin. If a photosensitizing agent is used along with this therapy, it is possible for swelling, flareups, redness and crusting to occur. These are typically temporary and will diminish with continued use.

UV light is also a part of this therapy, however, the amount used is very low. This means that it is considered to be safe. To put it simply, skin cancer should not be a concern of those using this therapy because the UV light is just not strong enough. To ensure maximum safety, one should wear UV goggles to protect the retinas.

When a photosensitizing agent is used prior to performing a therapy, it is important to avoid sunlight following the treatment. In general, avoid long periods of sun exposure before you use this product.

Is LED Photon Therapy Safe to Use With Other Skincare Treatments?


For the most part, this therapy can be safely used along with other skin care treatments, both natural and medicinal. This is a very safe skincare therapy and can be safely and effectively combined with just about every other skincare treatment, however, to ensure absolute safety it is important to talk to a doctor before administering treatment.
