Dry and Damaged?

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

All of us have those days where our hair just couldn't careless for us. Some of us more than others. Personally, my hair has not been my best friend for the longest period of time. She is very stubborn and unruly. In other words, dry and damaged.

However, the only time my hair listens to me is when I give her  an olive oil treatment. Every second week I like to condition my hair with olive oil and add in that extra love. Using olive oil adds the moisture back into my dry hair.

This is how you do it:

  • By warming up 1/2 cup olive oil (do not boil it)
  • Rub it deep into your hair
  • Wrap everything in a towel. 
  • Let it soak for 45min - 1 hour.
  • Rinse thoroughly with shampoo and water.

Now feel that silk touch...That's your hair!!

Give it a try...Let me know how it goes.

Pour me a bubbly...

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Are we feeling luxurious today? Or, do you feel like spending a little bit more on some ingredients? Then pop a champagne bottle. This bubble-infused wonder can be found throughout many beauty products whether in skincare or makeup.

Champagne helps us promote youthful skin and generally helps in treatment of aging. It can even help with minor skin blemishes.

Check out these three bubbly routines:

1. Use it as a toner. Every night before going to bed, dab a little champagne on a cotton pad and tone out that skin. 

2. Just like the saying sparkling champagne; champagne can leave your hair with that extra sparks and brings out the brightness in your natural or colored hair. Just mix 1/2 cup champagne with 1/2 cup hot water and rub it on your hair and let it sink for 15 min, and than wash it out. See that hair shine.

3. We all want that nice bubble bath, here and there. All you need to do is pour a cup or two of champagne in with your bubble bath. Before that, make sure to scrub yourself with salt scrub. This way the champagne soaks in the skin, and moisturizes.

Now, pour yourself a glass of bubbly and try out some of there beauty regime. Let me know would you ever use champagne again ?

Natural remedies for that nasty odour

Let's face it: A nasty body odor isn't going to make you the life of ANY party. However, the deodorant use has gone up tremendously , BUT nothing seems to work.
There are many home remedies for body odor that you can use to keep yourself smelling like a rose.
  1. Wipe vinegar or hydrogen peroxide onto your underarms during the day to cut down the number of odor causing bacteria.
  2. Dust baking soda on any odor troubled part of your body. This powder absorbs moisture, and also kills odor causing bacteria. 
  3. Shave regularly under your arms. Underarm hair can increase body odor because it traps sweat and bacteria.
  4. Apply tea-tree oil to troubled areas, as long as it doesn’t irritate your skin. This oil, from an Australian tree, kills bacteria and also has a pleasant scent.
  5. A citrus fruit like lemon changes the pH level of your skin, making it more acidic. All bacteria have a hard time surviving in a highly acidic environment. Just rub on some lemon and pat dry. 

Another way of getting rid of the odor is to eat the right kind of food.
  1.  Eat plenty of spinach, chard and kale. Green, leafy vegetables are rich in chlorophyll, which has a strong deodorizing effect in your body.
  2.  Eating white meat, such as chicken or fish, instead of red meat might produce less body odor.
If your body odor still continues despite the good hygiene and proper diet, your problem might just be CLOGGED PORES.
When your skin can't properly eliminate the body waste, bad body odor is the result.  All you need to do is gently dry brush your skin before your shower.

Now go out and odor-free yourself :)
