I am going to be sharing with you my favorite moisturizer at the Moment! When I am choosing a skincare moisturizer, I try to find one that has plant based ingredients. Just natural ingredients I can actually pronounce. Please do educate yourself when choosing what to put on your skin. It’s really important that you stay away from toxic chemicals and ingredients that are in most mainstream products nowadays. They do more harm than good in the long run.
My skin is typically on the drier side so I do moisturize my face everyday, especially every morning after I have washed my face. I also try to incorporate lot’s of water throughout my day. It’s really important you make sure you stay hydrated! I really feel a difference when I am not drinking enough water and my skin does suffer. So do stay hydrated by drinking water and include lot’s of fruit into your meal plan.
Every few months or so, I like to try out different moisturizers for my skin. Currently the one I have been testing for about 3 months is SHEATERRA ROSE HIPS REPLENISH FACE CREAM. It supposedly says it replenishes dry aging skin and plumps cell. I love the natural ingredients and it’s made with pure moroccan rose water! Let me tell you, It smells divine. I love rose hip scent and it will leave your skin feeling soft and smelling like roses! Once you apply it to your skin, it leaves it smooth and really hydrates it. I am almost done with my container and I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase another container.
So, I want to talk bout body wash! Particularly my recent favorite body wash by the brand OMSHE AROMATHERAPY. I happened to stroll around Marshalls in Brooklyn, New York and decided to pick up a bottle of the shower gel since the ingredients seemed natural and smelled so good. I really love that it has organic essential oil blends. Ever since I have finished my first bottle, I have went out and purchased more bottles and have been really satisfied using them. I can’t pick a favorite because they are just uniquely one of a kind. Since it’s been getting warmer out, I am really enjoying the mango coconut oil scent. It smells too delicious! What is your currently favorite body wash/gel at the moment?
My hair has always been on the dry side. Also, it’s super curly. Ever since I got my hair colored about 6 months ago, my hair has been looking very dull and gets tangled very quickly. I don’t wash my hair often and don’t have the time to spend hours and hours detangling and brushing my hair every day. I aim to wash my hair at least 2 times a week. I have cut out all commercial and mainstream hair products out of my hair washing routine. I try to use natural ingredients and products as much as possible. In most every commercialized hair product even body washes, they all have one ingredient and that is sodium lauryl sulfate, or SLS.
SLS is what makes your cleaning agent foam. It’s toxic and has been linked to many health and skin problems and if I were you , I’d try to stay clear away from any product containing this “chemical”. Look for products that say ” SLS free”..or better yet make your own! You can’t get better than that! I will share one of my most recently favorite homemade all natural 5 ingredient cleansing/ conditioning treatment.
Black castor oil
Apple Cider Vinegar
Table spoon of each ingredient, mix all together in a warm bowl and apply it to the roots and massage into the scalp. Let it sit for 30 minutes and rinse as usual.
