This is what I use on my face
Make up remover: olive oil
Toner: apple cider vinegar & water*
Moisturizer: olive oil
I spray my skin with some toner and moisture it with olive oil.
I don’t clean my skin in the morning. Liz (writer of the SkinterventionGuide) says that your skin is in a good natural balance in the morning.
I clean my skin with olive oil (yep - also eye make up).
Then I tone and moisture with olive oil.
I use a warm washcloth to put on my face before the cleaning and toner to open up the pores.
*I use half/half to get rid of my acne. If it’s to strong for you, use 1 part ACV and 8 parts water
Natural toothpaste = baking soda
Yep, you heard me right. You can use baking soda as a natural tooth paste AND your teeth will even get whiter!
I tried some different things with my home made toothpaste and this is my recipe (with inspiration from several blogs, yahoo answers and of course The Skintervention Guide)
- 2 tbs organic baking soda
- 1 tsp peppermint essence
- 1 tsp coconut oil
Mix it all together in a small container and dip you toothbrush in it. The peppermint gives it a more fresh taste that I like and the coconut oil makes it more “smooth”.
With the above recipe you’ll have toothpaste for a week or so (How cheap is that!?)
