Making Me

23 Jan

I recently had the opportunity to do a great deal of research into the field of DIY beauty…

Some of it was fun. Some of it made sense. Some of it was just bizarre.

But there I was trotting along, reading article after article relating to apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, tea tree oil, jojoba, etc, etc, etc… And then I decided that I needed to get back into the swing of things. I happen to adore DIY, and I was more than willing to try these natural remedies and treatments.

I started with coconut oil… If you have not luxuriated in the sheer decadence of a sugar scrub that used coconut oil, then I have a sneaky suspicion that your body is in for a treat. Once I started using it on the outside, I started using it in my food, and let me tell you, coconut oil is one of the things that made my body super happy with me. If you want good, natural oil that wont block your pores, look no further (and this is coming from a girl who used to have oily places on her face!)

Then I went to apple cider vinegar. I use it as a toner, and my face is so pleased with me. Before, I was committed to benzoyl peroxide, and anyone else who has used it can attest to the fact that it can dry your skin out and leave you red and rough. Not so with ACV. Just make sure to dilute the solution before putting it on your face. I’d say about two parts water to one part ACV. But that’s just me. Others say a 1:1 ratio works for them. ACV restores your skin to a normal pH!

These are some of my most recent loves, but stick around. I will be providing recipes (DIY beauty AND munchies)!
