Want a calming afternoon with friends without paying for a manicure? Here are some easy-to-make recipes for relaxation.
To make your hands/feet soft:
Combine oil and sugar (in increments that make a paste). Rub the mixture over your hands/feet, then rinse off. You're hands will feel like a baby's after you're done, but you might want to use some scented lotion or soap; it smells like the dipping sauce at Italian restaurants.
To open your pores:
Boil some water with mostly squeezed orange slices (you could use the one from the "recipe" below) and cinnamon. Put in a bowl and (excuse the slang expression) stick your face in! Make certain that you don't forget to put a towel over your head so the steam doesn't escape.
Take about a tablespoon of real orange juice (squeezed directly from the orange is preferable) an mix it with two tablespoons of baking soda. It should have the consistency of a paste. Rub it onto your face and neck, and leave it in for ten minutes; wash off by wetting your fingers and rubbing in a circular motion.
