Homemade facial and hair treatment

I’ve been searching over the web for a homemade facial treatment and found this Kraft Miracle Whip (KMW) facial treatment here and here. Lately, I’ve been suffering a lot of break outs, and I also tried availing a collagen facial in one of the well-known facial spa in the city but nothing changed, it even worsen the case. So what I did is go back to my normal facial wash and let it be.

Out of curiosity, I tried this Miracle Whip facial after finding some positive feedbacks from those who have tried it. And yes, it’s effective! I’ve tried the facial for two days already and my face feels soft and moisturized without even applying moisturizer. And I no longer suffer oily skin after the facial treatment.

In between the search for positive feedbacks from those who have tried this homemade facial, I also have learned that Kraft Miracle Whip can also be a good hair treatment most especially to those have dry hair. The second time I applied KMW to my face, I also applied it to my scalp and hair. After thirty minutes of leaving it on my head, I washed it twice with a shampoo and never used a conditioner after to really prove if it can indeed turn my dry hair into a shiny and healthy hair. And yes, after my hair dried, it feels soft and even my dandruff were gone. Yes… I’ve been suffering from dandruff eversince time immemorial. I tried a lot of dandruff shampoos even the expensive Nizoral, but everytime I stop using this over-the-counter drug, these unwelcoming white flakes keep on coming back. Well, not now. I’m dandruff free and will be pimple free after a few more KMW facial. ;)

I encourage every ladies to try this homemade facial and hair treatment because it’s not only affordable (super duper affordable), it’s also guaranteed effective. Here’s the instruction for the facial (for the hair treatment, just follow what I said earlier):

Use a shower cup or tie your hair so that it will never mess with the mayo on your face. Apply a medium coating of Kraft Miracle Whip on your face, spread it so that it will fairly cover your face but avoid the area near your eyes. You can also cover your lips if you want to have a soft kissable lips. Then leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Your face will feel hot, it’s because of the vinegar component of the Miracle Whip which I think also acts as the exfoliator. The burning sensation that you will feel is normal. But if you can’t stand it, better yet wash your face. After 15 minutes, massage your face gently after which you can see mini balls which consist of your dead skin cells and the excess Miracle Whip which was not absorbed by your skin. Rinse your face with water then you may continue with your usual facial regime. But I never used toner after it because the toner only made my face oily. So I leave it as it is after washing with my favorite facial wash.

So what are you waiting for? Try it now!

By the way, thank you so much to Christina for posting about it and also to for a very informative post.

another set of weight loss tips

  1. Forgive yourself so that you can start your diet program without any doubts and hesitations. Sometimes we all need to let go, move on and forgive ourselves to free some space in our hearts and to focus on a new endeavor and that is losing the flabs.
  2. Never start on an expensive weight loss program not unless you're so determined to succeed.
  3. Discipline is always the most important word to succeed in a weight loss program.
  4. Take one day at a time. Losing weight is a process. There are no shortcuts.
  5. Always reward yourself. Having a cheat day once every week or every two weeks would be a good motivational tool to succeed.

Sometimes, all we need to do is to forgive and love ourselves so that there would be no distractions during the weight loss programs. There are times that we fail in the middle of the program and eating more is our way of coping from the failure. This causes us to gain rather than lose weight.

There is no need to spend on an expensive weight loss program. As what I’ve said in my earlier post, the problem is not the weight loss program, but it’s you. Discipline and reward are important in the process. These two keep us motivated and these two serves as our light which would lead us to our goal of getting rid of our flab. During the weight loss program, we should focus on the moment, not on the destination. We should enjoy and learn from the process and refrain from thinking more about the future.
