Witch Hazel and its many uses

June 15, 2016

I cannot stress the importance of conscious living enough. I recently switched up a key part of my skincare regimen and that had me substitute my BodyShop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner for the much simpler Thayers Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner. My artificially green toner was doing a good job but a good, more natural substitute was not a bad idea. I have often seen ladies prescribe witch hazel as a…


Here’s Why You Should Consider Body Wraps For Detox

June 4, 2016

Has it ever crossed your mind that we fixate more on our facial skin than on the entire body. 9 out of 10 times we see how-tos and DIYs for the face. Have you ever for one second considered the rest of your body asides from cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing? I don’t think so. Anyways, I’m here to fix that. Enter Body Wraps. Body wraps are generally a popular spa treatment used…


DIY Chamomile Body Scrub

May 7, 2016

So, I decided to make a fresh batch of body scrub as I was itching to make an actual herbal scrub. As usual, I made enough last for about two weeks or less depending on how frequently I exfoliate. I recently got a mini pyrex. Hopefully, my measurements would be more accurate subsequently. I’m determined to actually stop eyeballing measurements. Also, I got some fine sea salt. This is very different from the ones…


Establishing your skincare routine

March 21, 2016

Many times I get cross when I research on skincare. This is because it seems as though 99.9% of skincare posts refer actually to facial care and not to the entire body. Don’t get me wrong facial care is important but come on, help me out here. Since not much exists to help out with building a skincare routine, I decided to take on the challenge like I would a…

I’ve made a few changes here and there. Take a look!

Health & Beauty Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay – The Review

December 31, 2014

This clay is definitely one famous baby… The internet is filled with thousands of great reviews about this product and it is truly amazing.. Not to shoot down the hype but it’s still just bentonite clay… LOL. I have done facials before with regular bentonite clay and this gives off the same results. I can’t lie though it’s great but what i’m trying to say is that if this particular…


Updated Facial Regimen {eBunite}

December 11, 2014

It’s no news that my transition to an all-natural regimen is underway. I’m currently at the trial and error phrase, selecting products that are dry-skin friendly and whatnot. I’m pleased to announce that I think I’ve found my holy grail! – For cleansing, I haven’t particularly found an all-natural cleanser and so for now I’m sticking with honey, black soap and my recently discovered Himalaya herbals neem and turmeric soap….

It’s really simple. Most of the products you need are readily available around you or the nearest department store so don’t fret. But the first thing you need to do, is…


Much Ado About My Skin (Type)

August 23, 2014

My Skin type: Drier-than-normal a.k.a Very dry combination. I’m one of those people that have used quite a number of skincare products and have been unlucky. Uneven skin tone Wrinkles Scars Ageing Dry flakes Damaged skin e.t.c. You know the drill. For a long time, my skin has been stagnant. Mostly due to my mother’s negligence over the years. And then one day, I looked at myself and decided to…


DIY: Oatmeal and Honey Facial Mask

July 12, 2014

  Hello everyone! To kick off the oatmeal series, I’m starting off with the popularly known, Oatmeal and Honey facial mask, which is like the easiest of them all.(Not that they’re that difficult). Oatmeal, as we all know has numerous health benefits when ingested and used topically but when combined with honey (and lemon juice), makes a bombshell facial for soothing dry and irritated skin. It acts as a natural…
