Tracy O' Connor: The BEAUTY Of Juicing

Juicing is all the rage, and it's not just good for you on the inside. Beauty expert Tracy O' Connor is here with recipes she's created to make your own beauty products. Juicing is all the rage these days. It's not only good on the inside – but it's also good on the outside. Let's talk Juicing 2.0 and how you can use your juicer to make homemade Beauty Products.

  • Can put WHOLE fruits and veggies in (3in. opening) – so saves lots of time cutting
  • It's a slow juicer, that presses rather than spins, so doesn't heat up like a centrifugal juicer and therefore preserve the healthy enzymes
  • It's super quiet. Halleluiah!
Note: Always test your homemade products on your arm first to make sure you aren't allergic/they aren't too strong. For those with sensitive skin or acne, be very cautious as you can further irritate your skin. Sterilize any jars you use for your products in your dishwasher or boiling water first.

1) GENTLE PEEL/EXFOLIANT PADS:

  • In Juicer: Green Apple, slice of Pineapple, one Tomato, ½ Lemon, small Cucumber
  • Put juice into jar with facial pad/cotton rounds
  • Can do AM or PM, wipe on for 10 seconds – more intense peel, 30 seconds
Note: For those with sensitive skin, wash immediately afterwards with water and neutralize the acid activity with a mixture of 1 part baking soda and 4 parts water solution

2) HYDROSOL TONER, TONER CUBES & UNDER EYE DE-PUFFER!

  • In Juicer: Cucumber, Celery, Aloe Vera Plant or Nopale plant
  • Make a Tea: Green Tea Bag, Fresh Mint, tspn honey
  • ½ tspn Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Allow to cool, then combine the juice and the tea
You can do a lot with this….

  • Put in a spray bottle and store in Fridge for a hydrosol toner, OR…
  • Make "Toner Cubes" by putting the juice into ice trays – will last months, OR...
  • Put into the spice jars with cotton rounds (Like we did with the peel) and use the cooling pads to reduce puffiness and inflammation
