Eliminate the chemicals & sulfates in your store-bought cleansers and switch to the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM). OCM is a great way to dip your toes into organic skincare and also treat your skin while dissolving makeup, oil, and dirt. For an even easier, one-ingredient cleanser, try the honey challenge and cleanse with raw honey.
Eye Makeup Remover
Apply extra virgin coconut oil (my fave) or olive oil to a cotton ball to gently remove even waterproof makeup without tugging.
Not everyone needs a toner, but if you’re one of the ones (like me) that have the need to feel “clean” skin, try substituting lemon juice or apple cider vinegar (ACV) for toner. Just make a solution by diluting the lemon juice or ACV in water, apply to a cotton ball, and smooth over your skin for a clean face.
Keep an orange stick in the bathroom, so that after a bath or shower, you can easily push back your cuticles. Dab on a little olive oil, and you’re set!
Mix sugar (white or brown) or salt with olive oil, honey, or a combination of any of these to make a great exfoliating and moisturizing body scrub.
What could be easier than making a paste out of baking soda or ground nutmeg and massaging onto skin weekly for a great exfoliator?
There are several oils: olive, coconut, jojoba, argan, sweet almond, grapeseed, apricot, etc. that can be either (or both) a facial or body moisturizer…not to mention a great moisturizing mask for your hair.
Just put a couple of drops of any essential oil (I like eucalyptus oil) into the commode to create a “diffuser” and instantly eliminate any unpleasant smells from the bathroom.
