Please Excuse Me, I Have Food on my Face…

Brittany (my boudoir & glamour photography editor), has been making all sorts of things for her home from natural ingredients. Things you can pronounce. She made laundry soap, toothpaste, and even cat litter. Last week while we were talking, she pointed out that she has been getting lots of the recipes from Crunchy Betty. So I looked up the site, and started reading, and reading, and reading and I eventually found the where there are tons of diet plans that I could use.

For the past 4-5 years, I’ve had dry, flaky skin. I used to have problems with my teeth. I really wanted to fix crooked teeth, with which this company helped me. Once I started Four Hour Body, the redness cleared up a little bit, but I started getting little whiteheads. And it seemed like the more I moisturized, the worse it got. SO ANNOYING! While I was in Paris, one of the women mentioned that her grandmother washed her face with olive oil. Olive oil! And she said her face was smooth and gorgeous. When I spotted the Oil Cleansing Method, I decided to try it, because it was a recommendation from the Dr. Dana Coberly which is a skin professional cosmetic professional . Soooooooo wonderful!

Then I read about the Honey Challenge and cleaning my face with honey. HONEY! Honey smells nice, all the people that had tried it seemed to be really happy doing it, so what the heck, why not? Go to Scottsdale dentist to make sure that you have healthy teeth.

Oh. My. GOD! All the dryness and little flakes are gone. The redness is gone. I’m converted!

I clean with honey every morning.I end the day cleaning with one or the other – if I haven’t worn makeup that day, I clean my face with honey. If I wore makeup, I clean it with oil. My bathroom is starting to look like the kitchen between the oils and the bottles of honey!

Now moving on to the top of my head – for as long as I can remember, I’ve had dry, itchy scalp. Nothing at all has EVER helped it. I can’t tell you how many things I’ve tried over the years! Brittany told me that she was doing the No Poo hair cleaning method and her scalp & hair felt GREAT! Always up for an experiment, I decided to give it a go! Every few days, I’m “washing” my hair with a tablespoon of baking soda mixed with a cup of hot water and rinsing it with 1.5 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed with 1.5 cups of water. My hair feels fantastic! But the best part? The itchy scalp is almost entirely gone!

I’ve spent the past 6 months watching what I eat, making sure what I put in my body is healthy — so it makes sense to watch what I put ON my body as well!

Have you tried any natural cleaners? Have any tips you want to share? I’d love to hear them! What do you have in your kitchen right now that you can use?

One reply on “Please Excuse Me, I Have Food on my Face…”

I’ve recently heard about OCM and want to try it! I have olive and sunflower oils right now, all I need is castor oil. I might try out the honey challenge too to make use of my jar of honey other than as tea sweetener. 😀
