Prophylactic self-isolation for easy skin alimentation. Day 64th.


– What are you usually doing with a butter package when butter is finished?

– Me? I transform it into a feet mask

The grandma of one my classmate, years ago, was looking younger than others. Her skin beauty was a matter of talks among all three female generations: us (teenage girls), our mothers and grandmothers. As being in good relationship with my classmate, I asked her to find out that beauty secret from her grandma. The secret appeared to be as much sensational as simple. Here it is: while cooking in her kitchen, the grandma was always putting any food on her face, like a “while-cooking mask”. So, if there was a bit of mayonnaise going for salad or potato puree – a drop of it would appear on her face as a mask, if that was a cream – it was going for a mask as well, right there with no specific preparations and rituals. Continuous for years “while-cooking mask” gave its results – the grand-ma was looking as a young-ma!:)  

These days I decided to renew the knowledge and put it into an action, because nothing works better than an action, a dynamic process of live and experience. I need to say, I found my way of “while-cooking mask” for not to spook relatives at homeJ Herein is the recipe of my “while-cooking mask” for feet, to make them feel nourished and shinyJ More so, it contributes to almost infinite use of the products, saving tons of money after years. Lets start!

  • Paper packaging for butter (when butter is finished)

How to apply it?

  • Take a paper packaging for butter and rub the remnants of butter into the feet
  • Let it stay for 30 min or more (depends just on your cooking process in a kitchen) and later remove excess of a “while-cooking mask” with a paper towel

Important notes:

  • Should also work well for feet if using cream, cow butter or Ghee
  • Margarine should generally be avoided, as for feet, as for refrigerator, as for cooking
  • Vegetable oil is not working well for this easy cosmetic recipe, because it is difficult to apply it on dry feet
  • Because butter packaging material is multi-layer and not 100% paper-made, apply it very gently to feet skin. Do not apply to a face skin for the same reason

Prophylactic self-isolation for gaining tailoress’s qualification. Day 32nd.

The sewing machine was found somewhere deep in the boxes. Always ready, always waiting – a great friend, isn’t it?:)

It took me 3 hours for one mask to sew. It took me 3 hours!

Well, it was always a deficit in time, but if viewing through Covid prism – we have all the time now. Just need to realise that only these days we have all the treasures we never had but always admired: time for yourself and family, time for doing nothing, time for doing something, time for relaxation, time for time:)
