Detoxing

Welcome back, Beauties!

Today I wanna share an amazing tip with all of you. Detoxing! Detoxing is very important for overall health but also for clear, healthy skin. When I had started drinking a detox tea every day, I had noticed that my acne had suddenly disappeared! My face had gotten so much brighter, softer and blemish free! It’s important to start detoxing if you already aren’t because there are a lot of toxins clogging your pores as we speak.

My favorite way to detox is by drinking Triple Leaf Detox Tea every day. It’s made with potent chinese purification herbs for healthy skin. It helps promote clear, healthy skin by cleansing the body of toxins. It’s suggested that you drink at least 2 cups a day, I drink it once a day and still got amazing results! You can drink it bland or add a little raw honey and lemon, which I prefer.

If tea isn’t really your thing, try making your own detox water. There are lots of detox water ideas online! I hope this tip was helpful, come check back later!

Chapped Lips?

Chapped lips can be one of the most annoying things you could experience. No matter how many times you may lick your lips and or how much water you drink, your lips are still dry! If you’re experiencing this problem, I have a solution for you! I love to use coconut oil on my lips. Whenever I feel my lips getting dry I apply coconut oil and my lips instantly feel softer!

Some ingredients in chapsticks make your lips worse causing dryness, so you’re only wasting your money! Lip scrubs are also very affective for dry lips. The most known DIY lip scrub is honey and sugar. Mix honey and sugar together in a small container to store it in, make sure to add enough sugar to exfoliate your lips! My favorite ingredients to use in my  lip scrub potion are honey, coconut oil, sugar and peppermint oil. I use one tablespoon of honey, one tablespoon of sugar, a pinch of coconut oil and a drop or two of peppermint oil (make sure to store it away in the refrigerator to keep it fresh).

Dandruff and itchy scalp

I’m going to share a quick tip with you. If you’re experiencing dandruff, cut a lemon in half and squeeze lemon juice all over the scalp and massage it in. Let it sit for at least 15-30 mins then go about your regular wash day routine. If you’re experiencing itchy scalp try apple cider vinegar. Get a spray bottle and make a mixture of half apple cider vinegar and half water. Spray your mixture all over the scalp and massage it in and let it sit for 15-30 min then go about your regular wash day routine (you can cover your head with a conditionting cap while letting your hair sit to avoid dripping)!

Benefits of Turmeric and face detoxing

Hello Beauties!

We all at some point, experience unwanted dark spots, acne and or an uneven skin tone. Turmeric can be the cure for all of that and much more! I love to use turmeric under my eyes when I’m experiencing dark circles or as a face mask to help even out my skin tone by erasing blemishes. After making a turmeric face mask my skin instantly feels so amazingly soft and so bright, leaving my skin glowing! So if you have unwanted scars, oily skin and acne, turmeric is the answer for you!

It’s important to always start on a clean face. As I said in my previous post, I love to wash my face with black soap (preferbably Raw African Black Soap). I then like to tone my face with my apple cider toning potion, let it dry then apply my turmeric & honey mask (I mix honey and turmeric to the thickness of my liking) and let it sit for 15 mins. I rinse my face with cool water and pat my face dry with a paper towel. I reapply my apple cider toning potion, let it dry and apply my favorite face moisturizer.

Face detoxing can also help you battle acne as well as black heads and should be done daily. A face detox cleanses your pores and improves the skin tone. I love to use Moroccan red clay powder because it’s for sensitive skin and it’s pure powder! It cleanses and purifies my skin, making me glow. I like to add a few capsules of vitamin E because it helps heal acne scars as well as keeping your skin looking ageless! When I do the Moroccan red clay powder mask I do the same process I do with my turmeric mask intead just using moroccan red clay powder instead.

Benefits of Aloe Vera

Hello beauties!

Let me start off by telling you that aloe vera is amazing, could really say it’s one of my best friends! Aloe vera has amazing healing properties; it can be used to heal acne, soften the skin and fade scars. After using it one night before bed, I woke up to a much clearer face! Couldn’t believe the results I gained so quickly! Aloe hydrates the skin, fades wrinkles and heals burns. So if you aren’t already using Aloe, why not?

As you know by now the benefits are endless with Aloe! It also moisturizes and cleanses the skin without the worry of causing build up. I usually wash my face with black soap then apply my apple cider toning potion and let it dry. After letting it dry, I rub aloe vera gel on my face and let it sit for 15 mins. I then wash my face off with warm water and dry my face with a paper towel. I reapply my apple cider toning potion, let it dry then apply my favorite moisturizer.

Not only is aloe beneficial but also very affordable! You can grow your own aloe plant or buy it by the leaf at your local super market. Be sure you clean your aloe leaf before cutting it open. I hope I’ve been helpful beauties, please feel free to reach out to me about anything! Come check back later for more health tips.

Benefits of Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is awesome, especially for your skin in my experiences! Apple cider vinegar seems to fade pimples and scars overnight! Apple cider vinegar disputes wrinkles, clears/restores the skin and removes toxins! If it seems like you can’t get rid of acne no mater what you use, try apple cider vinegar! It will lift all the dirt in your pores.

I have oily skin so I love to use apple cider vinegar as a toner. Apple cider vinegar alone can burn your skin so it’s important that you dilute it, making it half water and half apple cider vinegar. In my apple cider toning potion I love to add essential oils, one of my favorite oils I use is tea tree oil! Tea tree oil is good for combating acne. I usually have my apple cider toning potion in a spray bottle so that I can just spray it onto a cotton ball and rub my face before I go to bed.
