My natural winter body care routine is full of moisturizing products, that help to keep my dry skin hydrated and smooth in the coldest season of the year. Combination of hydrating body products, such as body scrub, body milk and body lotion. Occasionally I also use homemade scrubs, oil blends and salves to maintain my skin.
Wild rose beauty balm is Neal’s Yard Remedies top selling product around the world and a multi-purpose balm that is the perfect product for every skincare issue you can imagine and helps to keep skin glowing all year around. I literally cannot say enough good things about this product. I use it for everything, from using it as a cleanser to hair treatment. Since I tried it first time last winter my skincare routine has become so much simpler, no more 10 different products to keep my skin happy and healthy. And you will only need a small dollop of it in the evening, so the product will last long time even for everyday use.
Do you want clean and white teeth? I do. And as naturally as possible! I found charcoal teeth whiteners about three years ago and went totally crazy about them. I have tried many different kind of charcoal products that promise to whiten your teeth easily and naturally without harmful chemicals. Every product that I have tried works, but you can get exactly same results and save money by making your charcoal teeth whitener by yourself.
Activated charcoal removes toxins when they become attached to the surface of the charcoal. It absorbs all those pesky stains from drinking coffee, tea and wine or smoking and eating coloring foods like blueberries. It will not absorb to the body, but will pass trough the GI system, so chemicals and toxins stick to it. Then charcoal will pass through the body and are removed by the digestive system. I like to make my teeth whitener mix with coconut oil because of its antibacterial properties, but you can make it with water also.
But there is a little warning! It will be messy if you get charcoal to your clothes etc. If that will happen, no worries, it will go away when you wash your clothes as usually. Also it would be good idea to also to rinse your sink after whitening, or it will look a bit nasty after few times you have whitened with charcoal.
