Exfoliation is one of the keys to clear skin. It makes your skin smooth, scrubs the dead skin off, and helps clear your pores! Today’s diy face wash is all natural and gives you all the benefits of a store bought exfoliant without the harsh chemicals. It combines baking soda (which is much less harsh on your skin than salt and sugar which are common exfoliants), coconut oil (which helps kill bacteria and decrease acne), and frankincense essential oil (which helps prevent wrinkles and regenerate healthy skin cells).

Instructions:

  • 1/3 cup baking soda
  • 5/10 drops frankincense oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

All you have to do is mix all of these ingredients together and store them in a container with a lid. That is it! To use it, gently rub a teaspoon or two into your skin using circular motions and then rinse off with warm water.

Exfoliation is key to healthy skin! Make this concoction part of your weekly routine to keep your skin glowing and clean.

Now that my hair has grown back and is almost as long as it was in my first years of high school, pulling a brush through it after a shower is nothing short of a nightmare. The only way I can get all the tangles out of my hair is if I use detangler. This is a sort of leave-in conditioner that both moisturizes and helps work the tangles out of your hair! Here is how to easily make your very own.

Ingredients:download

  • 2-3 tablespoons conditioner
  • 2 cups distilled water
  • 12 drops of essential oil
  • Spray bottle

The amount of distilled water you use depends on your spray bottle size. Mix 1.5 to 2 cups of water with 2-3 tbsp of conditioner in a bowl. Add in some essential oils to spruce it up and to give your hair a fresh scent. I like to use rosemary oil because it promotes strong hair. Use a funnel to pour the mixture into the spray bottle, and there you have it! Spray on damp hair after you shower and your hair will be soft, tangle free, and shiny!

I like using a leave-in conditioner on my hair after I shower because it hydrates it and protects it from damage. Plus, it makes it super soft and shiny! Also, making your own ensures that you aren’t putting unnecessary chemicals on your hair.

Having healthy, glowing skin is one of the simple pleasures in life. A homemade coconut oil face mask can help you achieve the healthy skin we all long for! Coconut oil is naturally rich in antioxidants and healthy acids and will soften and lubricate healthy skin cells, break down dead cells, heal acne, and hydrate skin. How does this homemade mask work?

Coconut oil’s structure allows it to infiltrate skin pores to soften rough skin from within. Honey is a natural humectant, which hydrates skin cells. The last ingredient is lemon juice. Fresh lemon juice helps tighten and shrink large pores.

Ingredients:8836716_f520

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

 

Combine these ingredients in a small bowl. Apply a thick coat of the mixture onto your clean face. Allow it to sit on your face for 10 minutes and then rinse it off with cool water. Pat your face dry, don’t rub it.

Now get ready for clear, soft skin!

I recently did a video on YouTube about how I cleared my acne, have you seen it? If not, a quick recap is that I started using a product called “Curology” and I am absolutely in love! This acne prevention medication is custom tailored for your skin and monitored by a licensed dermatologist, so this will work with any skin type (get a 30 day trial for free here:  https://curology.com/invite/chelsea). But, for those of you who like to go the more all natural, DIY skincare route, I did a bit of research and found 4 at-home skincare tips to keep your skin clear!

  1. Incorporate coconut oil: I like to use a little coconut oil on my skin after my shower, just to keep my skin soft. It is also antibacterial, so it keeps your skin clean and clear.
  2. Exfoliate daily: Use an exfoliant such as a sugar scrub every day to keep your pores clear and skin smooth. Every-day exfoliation helps keep oil and gunk from building up on your skin and in your pores!FullSizeRender-30
  3. Drink lots of water: Keeping yourself hydrated means keeping your skin hydrated! Staying hydrated helps your skin stay clear and moisturized.
  4. Change your pillowcase every/every other day. This keeps bacteria from building up and smothering your skin while you sleep!

If skin medicines aren’t your thing, try these healthy tips to keep acne away!

During the winter months, sinus infections wreak havoc on so many of us! Stuffy noses are the absolute worst! If you are looking for a way to breathe easier and get some sweet relief, try out these homemade shower soothers! You put them in the shower with you while you bathe and they help clear you right up! Plus, they are much better for you than the store bought ones. And much cheaper!

Ingredients:

  • About 1 1/2 cups of baking sodaimages
  • About 2/3 cup of water
  • Essential Oils: Rosemary, Lavender and Eucalyptus

Before getting started, preheat your oven to 350F. Add the baking soda to a mixing bowl and slowly add in the water. Your mixture should look a little like pancake batter! Stir together, then scoop your mixture into muffin tins that have paper muffin liners in them, one tablespoon per muffin hole. Place the muffin tin in the oven for 20 minutes, then remove them. Add a few drops of each essential oil to the discs and let them cool completely. Once they have cooled, pop them out of the muffin tin and store them in a plastic bag. Toss one in the shower next time you are feeling stuffy and prepare to be amazed!

Over the cold weather months, I don’t give my feet very much attention. But, in spring and summer, I break them out of hiding! Because they have been hibernating for quite a few months, my feet are not in the best shape. They could use a little TLC. Here is a recipe for a rejuvenating foot scrub that will get your piggies in pristine shape!

Ingredients:pic

  • Epsom salt
  • Baking soda
  • Lime
  • Peppermint

AIf you are like me, then you are always trying to find ways to go all natural and be healthier. To all of us all-natural gurus, apple cider vinegar is our best friend! It can be used for just about everything under the sun. Sounds kind of weird, right? Using vinegar to be healthier? Could it be?? It sure can! Here is how:

  1. Drink it! Now I’m not saying fill up a cup with apple cider vinegar and go to town on it, that would be totally flytrap-vinegar1“ewwww”. Just mix a really small amount into a cup of water and sip on it throughout your day. Apple cider vinegar actually helps with weight loss and can help detox your liver and reduce heartburn! It may be a little odd tasting at first, but it grows on you!
  2. Tone your face! You can actually use this vinegar as a toner. Mix one part apple cider vinegar with 2 parts water. It can help tighten and tone skin as well as reduce acne.
  3. Treat your hair! After you shampoo your hair, pour a cup of cold water with 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar mixed in over your hair. This removes any product buildup on your hair and makes your hair super shiny. I’ve tried this and it really works!

Try adding apple cider vinegar into your beauty regimen for an all-natural remedy!

I was on Pinterest this week and discovered something really cool! I found a recipe for all natural homemade mascara! Now some of you may be thinking “I’d rather buy mine from the store, thank you very much,” but then there are those who may say “bring it on!” Some people cannot wear store bought mascara because they are allergic to the chemicals in the makeup, so this is a great alternative for them! There are also ladies who just feel more comfortable knowing what they are putting on their eyes, so they like to make their own! Whatever your reason, this handy dandy recipe may be just what you are looking for!

 Ingredients:

2 tbs coconut oilmascara

4 tsp aloe vera gel

½ tsp grated bees wax pellets (you can find this on Amazon)

1-2 capsules activated charcoal (you can buy this at most health food stores or online)

1 clean mascara container

 

Directions:

1. Put the coconut oil, aloe vera gel, and bees wax in a small sauce pan over low heat. Stir until wax is completely melted.

2. Open 1-2 capsules of activated charcoal, depending on how dark you want it, and pour it into the sauce pan along with the other ingredients. Stir the mixture until all of the ingredients are blended together. Remove it from heat.

3. Pour the mixture into a small plastic bag and push it down to one corner. Cut a very small hole in the opposite corner of the bag.

4. Stick the cut-open corner of the bag into the empty mascara container and squeeze in the mixture(CAREFULLY). And there you have it! All natural, made by you, how much better can it get?
