1. Organic Coconut Oil - There is a reason this is number one. This stuff is AMAZING! Thank-god for coconuts! I use it for cooking, I use it as a dry scalp treatment (by heating some up and rubbing it into my scalp and leaving it on for as long as I can stand it before washing out and it's been the only thing to clear up my unsightly flakes), a moisturizer for my hands, feet, and body, a cheek highlighter (it makes them shimmer better than any highlighter cream I've tried) , and most recently a facial cleanser! Yes, you heard me correctly. I cleansed my oily skin with oil last night. It was scary and I was skeptical but I think I may have discovered that oil cleansing is going to change my life. Maybe. The verdict is still out so I'm not going to make any rash statements here but I'll let you know how it goes... It's definitely a great eye make up remover though, so get rid of the stuff you're currently using... like now. It likely contains carcinogenic chemicals and endocrine disruptors. Thanks again Lancome! Really appreciate it.
2. Raw Organic Honey - Hmmm…it's not just delicious, it's also antibacterial and great as a face wash! It's not going to take any makeup off, you'll have to do that first but it's lovely for a gentle morning cleanse or a weekend face mask. Just wet your face to open up your pours and rub a tbsp of honey in your hands and then massage it in. It smells incredible and I like to lick my lips the whole time. I even added a little bit of baking soda once to give it some exfoliating suds and my skin loved it. This is where I got the idea and I trust anything these women say. I'll say it again…. No More Dirty Looks changed my mother f$%&^ing life! Why do we use harsh chemically filled cleanser to strip our face of all it's natural oils only to put the oils back onto our face with moisturizer that also contains toxic sludge? Why not skip the harsh cleanser?
3. Aloe Gel - It soothed my itchy scalp and calmed my frizzy hair... It's a miracle plant with so many uses...everyone should have one.
So much fun right? Right?? I love sticking it to the man! The cosmetic industry would never tell you that you can get the results that your hundred dollar face cream gives you with a jar of coconut oil! Give some of these a try and let me know how it goes… : ) Do you have any natural remedies we should know about??? Post them in the comments below. : )
Thanks for reading... : )
