Cleopatra, the Egyptian queen, was known as the most beautiful woman in the world. She was one of the first to wear makeup, use scrubs, and soak in baths. She was pampered with natural resources from the earth and animals, which you can recreate yourself!  

  • For glowing, soft skin, mix half a cup of honey, 3 cups of milk, and 5 tablespoons of olive oil and add it to a warm hot bath to soak in. It’s all about relaxation!
  • Cleopatra didn’t have primer or toner during her time, so she used rose water instead! It acts as a natural toner and primer in one! It’ll keep your skin nourished, while also helping makeup go on smoothly and last longer.
  • Vinegar circulates the blood that irritates skin. After removing makeup, try adding ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar to a sink full of warm water. Splash your face and let it air dry or healthier skin!Chelsea Crockett- henna nails
  • Ever heard of a henna tattoo? Cleopatra used henna to dye her nails! While the color wasn’t permanent, it would protect the nail and leave a long-lasting color.
  • Raw honey is skins best friend. It has antibacterial properties, slows aging, treats acne, and creates glowing skin. Try a raw honey mask!

Whoever said old people (like hundreds of years old) don’t know what they’re talking about it is totally wrong!!

XOXO,

Washing your hair is one of the worst things you can do to it. Crazy, right? You would think that getting out all of that dirt, grime, and grease would benefit it! Well, your shampoo more than likely contains tons of harmful ingredients, chemicals, and can cause lots of yucky product buildup on your hair that can weigh it down and prevent you from being able to style it. Want to know how to save your hair from being harmed PLUS get it squeaky clean? Wash it with baking soda! The baking soda and vinegar method is cheap, effective, simple and chemical-free! Here is how you can use this method. baking soda 2

Wash your hair with baking soda, then rinse it with an apple cider vinegar rinse. I have discussed this kind of rinse before, but I will go over it again in a sec!

Mix 1 part baking soda with 3 parts water. If you have shoulder length hair, mix about 2-3 tbsp of baking soda with 3x that much water in a bottle. Apply the baking soda and water mixture to dry or wet hair by starting at the roots and working it through to the ends.  Let it sit for 1 – 3 minutes then rinse it out with warm water. After washing and rinsing with the baking soda mixture, you’ll want to use a vinegar rinse. Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 4 parts water. Lean your head back and close your eyes, then rinse the mixture through your hair. Rinse with cold water to seal in the moisture and shine!

 

 I am excited to see how this method will improve my hair, by keeping it shiny, healthy, and frizz-free! Have you ever tried a baking soda shampoo? Comment below!

XOXO, Chels
