Your skin is the largest organ of the human body, it reacts how you react to external forces such as; stress or temperature. There have been many companies & studies over the past 20 years claiming X & Y will clear your skin, a huge industry has emerged within beauty, and particularly pertaining to our skin. I’m not saying that there isn’t proof some of these products do work; however they are unnecessary, and geared to you spending money you don’t need for things that proven they can only do so much.
Well, like everything in our bodies: it’s all about our diet and the amount we try to use organic and natural materials to sustain ourselves. Eating food as close to raw as possible, taking care not to drink too much sugar and managing our stress and commitments with positivity and outlets, such as exercise.
Coconut oil is phenomenal, its got its own natural antibacterial properties and does a range of things from whiten your teeth; to treating your hair, to removing your make-up…yes, even mascara! It’s such a peaceful substance that it will help condition, moisturise and clean-up damaged skin and keep it on track; it’s the most effective and proven way to take care of your entire body…head to toe!
Sea salt has been used for YEARS, from the dead sea to bath salts, and sold throughout the world in little overpriced packages. Sea salt is rich in natural minerals and its course nature can be rough, but is excellent for getting rid of dead skin and drying out nasty spots.
Coconut oil will cleanse your skin of all the make-up damage & chemicals from the day, heal your cuts, and is fantastic to cook with…so go buy a few tubs and scatter them around, I mean…seriously what can’t this stuff do?!
I will soon be showing you how to make your own face masks out of products your already own; each mask is tailored for different personal needs & skin types!
- 2 tsp coconut oil (semi-hardened, below room temp)
- 4 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt (or maldon sea flakes)
Note: If you have sensitive skin, replace the sea salt with a raw organic brown course sugar
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 2 cotton pads
- Fairly simple; for exfoliator mix the 2 together and use your fingers to apply it thinly over your face and rub in circles. Coconut oil melts very quickly and the warmth of your fingers and face will cause it to become the oil your recognise usually, keep scrubbing and leave for 1 minute, remove with warm face cloth
- For make-up remover, let oil melt slightly in a warmer place and apply to cotton pad, gently use to remove make-up, pulling away from the eyes. Remove with a warm face cloth.
Note: Facial exfoliator, you can make a tub and keep it in the fridge, or on the side if you don’t live in warm conditions
