"Kiss My Grits" Facial and Body Scrub

An excellent, cream facial scrub that smells like key lime pie and helps to soften and clear up oily skin.

1/2 cup non-fat yogurt
1/4 cup cornmeal
2 tsp lime juice
1 tsp lime zest

Directions: Blend yogurt and cornmeal together until creamy. Then add lime juice and zest. Apply masque to face, neck and decollate. Keep on for at least 15 minutes, then wash with warm water

Organic Green Goddess Facial Masque

Recommended for dry skin. For best results buy whole coriander seeds and finely grind in a coffee grinder. It is worth the effort...the aroma is out of this world!

1 cup organic yogurt
1 tablespoon organic mayonnaise
1 tablespoon local honey
1/2 ripe avocado
1 tsp lemon juice
pinch of ground coriander

Directions: put yogurt, mayonnaise, honey and avocado in a food processor. Pulse until smooth and creamy. Place into a bowl and add lemon juice and coriander. Mix by hand until well incorporated. Apply masque to face, neck and decollate. Keep on for at least 15 minutes, then wash with warm water and follow up with your moisturizer of choice.

5 whole almonds
2 tablespoons uncooked oats
1 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons yogurt

Directions: Grind almonds and oats in a blender until finely ground. In a small glass bowl, mix all ingredients together. Apply to wet skin and gently scrub in a circular motion. Rinse off with warm water.
