DIY Natural Face Lift Lotion

I'm not getting any younger so I need all the help I can get to slow down the aging process. I have found that when I use this homemade facial massage lotion, my face feels like silk. The lines on my face soften, my skin has a pink glow and feels a little tingly for a few minutes after use. That's how I know it has done its job in stimulating my skin. The ingredients I use in this lotion have many great natural face lifting benefits.

Honey - Stimulates the regrowth of tissue, strengthens capillaries and the fibroblasts needed for healing. It also encourages the dermis to develop new connective tissue, including collagen, and speeds up the growth of epithelial cells.

Orange Blossom Essential Oil - Helps to stimulate the growth of healthy new skin cells and is beneficial to ALL skin types. Orange Oil has been known to reduce skin puffiness, moisturizes skin to discourage wrinkling, enhances blood circulation, minimizes blemishes and exfoliates the skin for healthy tone and texture.

Molasses - Contains iron calcium magnesium which is good for skin, promotes a flawless complexion, is a natural skin softener and skin brightener.

Glycerin - Glycerin is a humectant (a substance used to retain and preserve moisture), made from plant oils and is commonly found in moisturizers.

To make this face lift lotion mix together the ingredients in the amounts below.

After you have mixed together;
5 drops orange blossom or sweet orange essential oil
2T.pure honey (preferrably organic)
2T. vegetable glycerin

Apply a small amount (about a tablespoon) to your face in a circular massaging motion, alternate between tapping and massaging the face. Do this for a few minutes until the lotion becomes very sticky and hard to work with. Wash off with a warm cloth or you can lay a warm wet towel over the face for about 10 - 15 minutes before washing off for an added benefit. Rinse face with cool water to seal. Use as often as you like. Store in a covered container.

My face feels very invigorated and my facial muscles feel tightened after using this homemade face lift lotion. I use this in the evening and follow with a moisturizing night cream.
