Who writes Beautiful Basics?

 My name is Kassie and I’m a chronically ill 28-year-old from a small town in Oregon. I have a passion for all things beauty and green living. I write about natural and organic beauty products as well as DIY beauty recipes and other odds and ends. I'm also an animal lover and believe beauty should be cruelty free. I'm a proud cat mommy and vegetarian.

I’m not an expert or a professional but I have learned a lot about beauty and skin care by experimenting and teaching myself. I like to keep my posts as positive as possible. I love testing out products but I only write about the ones I love. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy!

I also have a blog that chronicles my life living with chronic illness.

Silky Smooth Hands

Want smoother, younger, healthier looking hands? I have a perfect, easy solution for those of you who said yes. It's a hand treatment starring two of my favorite ingredients for beauty – olive oil and honey! Sometimes simple equals spectacular and this is one of those times.

Just mix 1 teaspoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of honey together and massage into your hands right before bed. Make sure to wear gloves so the treatment doesn't wind up all over your blankets and pillows. When you wake up in the morning use a moisturizing hand wash or soap to clean off the excess and voila - Softer, smoother hands! Using this every night will prove to be a huge step in turning back the hands of time when it comes to the look and feel of your hands.

I love using olive oil on my hands. I combined it with honey once a week.
