Let's see, i swear by clay masks, green, white, pink and rhassoul.

 

Baking soda mixed with my cleanser, works just as well as a store bought facescrub, and i always have some in the kitchen.

 

Although it's not my favorite oil, olive oil is good on your body or hair.

 

Brown sugar and olive oil (sometimes mixed with coconut oil) make a wonderful bodyscrub.

 

Tea tree, grapefruit, lemon, lavender essential oils are fantastic as spot treatments.

 

Although it's more about health, peppermint essential oil is a great helper when one has a headache.

 

For hair, go for coconut or baobab oils as hair treatments, i keep shea and mango butters for my ends.

 

Witch hazel water is perfect to remove the last remains of mascara on your eyes.

 

Palmarosa essential oil makes a great deodorant, especially combined with alum stone.

hmm aspirin mask (reduces redness & inflammation) just take 3-4 lightly coated or noncoated aspirin & let them dissolve in your palm with a few drips of water until it makes a paste..then apply to your face & wipe off after 10-15 min.

i used to apply plain yogurt mixed with something else? i forgot! but the yogurt itself is supposed to be good for your skin.

hair- mixture of 2 tbsp mayo & 2-3 eggs > protein treatment for hair. smells funny but makes hair stronger..

bakeing soda for whitening your teeth and also water peroxide

aspiring for my face.

honey with brown sugar as your face scrub but because it has brown colors it helps people with dark skin like me.

goat milk for your face helps sooth your skin after goin to the beach.

garlic is perfect for nails because it fortifies them.

aloe vera but pure as the plant cut it in the middle peal the green out of skin blend the transparentl looking pulp and let it stay in your hair it stinks so you are goin to at least wash your hair 3 times let it stay for like 40 minutes.

Extra virgin olive oil! it contains squalane which is very good for the skin. I sometimes use it in my hair before i wash it, too.

I use aspirin mask like '4get me Not'. But i grind my aspirin up and mix it with a tiny drop of water and some honey as honey is exfoliating on the skin. It makes my skin so soft and spots smaller. The only downside is it flakes off your face, but i find that adding honey helps bind it to your skin more.

Toner: 2 oz aloe, 1/2 t honey, 1/4 t vinegar. Good for dry and sensitive skin. Aloe for about everything.

another good mask is porridge oats, yoghurt and honey. its really soothing and the oats work as an exfoliator and skin lightener (though i've never noticed this) if you massage it slightly when you rinse it off.

    • No, it does not affect my self-esteem either way.  Tbh I feel most confident when I'm not wearing makeup.  Perhaps makeup application can be seen by many women as a form of self-care but it's actually more hygienic not to wear it often (sounds weird but it's true), and imo women are coerced into its application by jobs, other women, and men.  Women are pressured to perform femininity or they will be met with violence, which doesn't stop at makeup application (which is a skill not an art form).
    • Week 2 of my new plan, with my new concept of time as two mini work weeks (Mon-Wed and Fri-Sat) and two mini weekends (Thursday and Sunday). I think this will help with not getting as tired during the work week or bored during the weekends. Being bored during the weekends leads to spending on shopping or eating! I like the new plan so far.  I finished my full sized Yves Rocher White Botanical Cleanser. That's the White Botanical Cleanser and Toner done, and a few days of Cream left. The goal for the rest of July is to use that cream up along with one pack of 20 face cleansing cloths.  I have a nine month supply of cleanser and cleansing cloths to finish.
