Queen of Hungary potion.
I was happy when I stumbled on to Empress Josephine's beauty secret. This one is ridiculously easy and effective.
Josephine de Beauharnais was Nepoleon Bonaparte's first wife. They married in France in 1796. She was known for beautiful clear complexion. It was rumored that she had a magic potion that she used on her skin every night to keep her appearance youthful and glowing. According to her handmaid it was nothing more than a simple cleanser/moisturizer.
As we all know, keeping skin clean stops blemishes and keeping it hydrated stops many wrinkles. So maybe it was magic after all....
2 T. heavy cream
1/4 C. Aloe vera gel
1 T. raw honey (optional)
Cut an aloe lengthwise and scoop out the gel with a spoon. Pulse a few times in the blender until smooth. Add cream and honey and pulse til mixed. This whips up in seconds!
Rub into skin in small circular motions for a few minutes. For extra moisturizing, let it set for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water and pat dry. Note: for all you No-poo girls this is also a nice conditioning treatment for the hair.
If you have any extra leftover make sure to refrigerate between uses because of the cream. This should last for about 2 weeks.
