DIY Skin Brightening Toner


One of my favorite things about Sodeë Naturals is research & development; getting to "play" with new recipes is my kind of fun. Downtime is spent browsing for do-it-yourself skin care recipes using natural ingredients to try and share. 
Here is a great simple facial toner recipe from shwinandshwin.com using only three ingredients!

link to recipe: Skin Brightening Toner by Shwin&Shwin

I tried this recipe and loved it! Though it is a simple recipe it has many benefits for your skin.

 Some of this toners natural benefits are:

LEMON JUICE
  • Helps diminish discoloration caused by scars, skin disorders, and age spots .
  • Natural antibacterial properties to minimize black heads and prevent further breakouts.
  • Gently exfoliates removing dead skin cells promoting new cell growth.
WITCH HAZEL
  • Effective yet gentle astringent.
  • Shrinks blood vessels, reducing redness and inflammation.
  • Tightens skin and minimizes large pores.

I found these cute colorful bottles at IKEA for less than $2 for a pack of four :)

The acids in the lemon juice may be irritating to some people, I suggest to do a test spot on your neck (just under your right/left jaw). Apply toner to spot, let sit, wash off if any irritation occurs. You can also dilute the lemon juice with water before mixing with witch hazel for a gentler solution.






Want to keep the glow going all day? After cleansing & toning, follow with Sodeë Naturals 24 Hour Face Lotion. Made with Orchid Flower Extract for flawless, even tone skin.

Benefits of Dead Sea Mud

 Hundreds of thousands of people each year visit the Dead Sea and take advantage of it's mud rich in over twenty-five different minerals and nutrients. The beauty secret to Dead Sea Mud isn't anything new; Cleopatra and King Herod used the rich mud to add extra life to the skin. Today Dead Sea Mud is used worldwide to naturally improve skin and body functions.

Here are just a few of the amazing benefits of Dead Sea Mud:

  • The main minerals found in the mud are: Calcium, Magnesium, Bromide, Chloride, and Potassium Sodium which are responsible for accelerating cell growth and increasing skin's water capacity.
  • Kills acne causing bacteria and assists in drawing out skins toxins.
  • Contains Zinc to help heal damaged skin, naturally balance skins PH and stimulate collagen giving skin a better tone and natural radiance.
  • Helps to relieve stress in the skin and indirectly soothes sensitivities.


Minerals play a very important roll in correct skin functioning, a deficiency of one of these minerals can disrupt skin cell activity leading to dryness, inflammation, and early aging. The skin absorbs minerals applied externally so add a product rich in Dead Sea Mud to your beauty routine to restore skin's healthy glow. We recommend using  Dead Sea Mud Soap  both morning and night to cleanse skin and draw out impurities leaving your skin glowing and gorgeous!

Saturdays


We love this quote by Lyndon B. Johnson. What better way to unwind and relax from your busy week than soaking in a hot bath. 

Make that bath work for you by adding your favorite bath bubbler.  My favorite: Therapeutic Bath Salt (large bubbler), the scent is a lovely light floral loaded with bath salts to help soothe sore muscles. 

Enjoy your weekend!
