There is a lot of good products that are good for you to use for your skin. There are some good over the counter products that can be used- but there are also many things you can use that are in your own home. I will use this article to focus on your face. Here are a few things that are important regardless of products:
-Changer your pillow case and sheets at least once a week.
-Rinse your face off after doing your hair and using hairspray.
-Wash your face twice a day.
- Take your makeup off every night!
Okay here are the products you can tr
Acne is common for teens and adults. This can be because of hormonal changes and also- even thought there isn't any "solid" evidence, what you eat does affect your skin. For black heads and white heads- I find that one of the best things you can use is baking soda! It is inexpensive and usually in most households. Baking soda is known for the cleaning properties. It is great to help dry up the bacteria on your face- it also is great for healing your face.
Try this: Twice a week, take 1 Tbsp of baking soda and mix it with about 1 Tbsp of water or less of water- just enough to make a past. Spread the paste across your face with a cotton ball- use a qtip to get into the tough places like around your nose and your chin. Let it dry on your face, it might burn a bit. If it burns too much go ahead and wash it off with a wash cloth.
**If you have acne all over your body, take a hot bath and add 1 cup of Epsom salts and 1/2 cup of sugar and let yourself soak for about 20 minutes.
Acne scars are common also any other scars on your face. The precious face is not something you want to have scars. Something that is common to use maybe once every week or once every two weeks in a cinnamon mask.
Try this: take 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of almond oil, and 1 tsp water. Mix this together and spread it all over your face, avoiding your eyes. Leave it on as long as you can stand it- this may burn. Then rinse it off with cool water and pat dry.
Dry skin is one of the most common things that people face- especially when the weather changes or when you are sick. Coconut oil is one thing that is good to wash your face with. You can mix some Epsom salts and coconut oil and wash your face really well. It will feel a bit oily- and is possible that you will get a few zits, but keep with it.
**If your whole body is dry- try taking a bath with 1/8 of a cup of olive oil, coconut oil, or almond oil.
To maintain a healthy skin balance washing your face with goat's milk soap. It will keep your skin moisturized and also allow your skin to get a lot of nutrients. To maintain healthy looking skin, take a 45 minute bath each week complete with 1 Cup of Epsom Salts, 1/2 Cup Sugar, 1 Tbsp Ground Ginger, and 1/4 Cup of Almond, Coconut, Olive, or Baby Oil.

So like I said earlier, I craved a hamburger. I'm not craving one anymore-- THANK GOD!
My sister made that chicken and it looked so good. I did cheat and had A BITE of it. Just one.. I promise!
Then I ate about half of a watermelon and one individual size of freeze dried fruit (strawberries and bananas).
So my menu for today what I ate:
half seedless watermelon
individual freeze dried fruit
what to drink? water :) with some lemons :)
Temptations were really hard for me today. I really wanted to eat two chicken legs, mashed potatoes, and broccoli-- ya know more of an average meal. I had one bite and I am kicking myself for it. My sister in law and my sister, China, think that I should just give up on the diet for the weekend and just start again Monday when I am not at the craft show-- but what kind of health coach would I be then?
I packed a healthy veggie lunch for tomorrow... yes tomorrow is all veggie day. Baked potato for breakfast and then the rest of the day veggies (canned, steamed, raw, roasted, grilled, whatever). I am telling myself I can do this. Carnivals and big public places are hard and full of temptations. I mean I sit there and smell the disgusting oil of the fryers, cider donuts, apple pies, ugh! Everything that really isn't too good for you. I normally follow the 90-10 method which is eating right 90% of the time and 10% of the time eat not so healthy- like eat a cookie or something lol.
Alrighty well good night everyone! I look forward to blogging to y'all tomorrow.
Hello everyone! I thought I would share with everyone this 7 day detoxing
diet! I have had a few emails via facebook and my other website about this diet
and my opinion as to whether it works or if it is even worth it. So as a health
coach my job is to understand diet theories and try them if necessary to give
everyone an educated answer!
Fruits all day. All you eat is fruit, and try to eat melons as well. 10 cups
--Sounds easy huh? Fruit is awesome for your body. It provides tons of
vitamins and minerals. Day one is to get your body ready for the week ahead.
I tried this. I had peaches this morning for breakfast. I also had a water
bottle with tons of sliced lemons in it. The water was great. As the day went on
I really wanted to eat a hamburger... and I don't know really why that was
because I don't usually crave hamburgers. For lunch I had a huge... and I mean
HUGE apple. The apple filled me up and I wasn't really hungry for the rest of
the day. I got home from the craft show and my sister was baking lemon chicken-
that was tough. I had a half cup of strawberries to help satisfy the craving. It
is difficult when someone is cooking something you really like but I am pressing
through. Cantaloupe, watermelon, and grapes are in my near future!
