Sitting reading The Times yesterday, I read a recipe that could prove useful if the situation with the economy gets any worse: how to make your own Benetint:
“You need 45g of grated raw beetroot and three tablespoons of glycerine (which you can get for £3.90 for 100ml at Neal’s Yard Remedies). Combine the two in a double-boiler (or bain-marie) and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool and pour into a sterilised pot. Dab onto the apples of your cheeks, blending well, or use as a lip stain.”
The recipe comes from The Ultimate Natural Beauty Book, by Kyle Cathie.
