5 Reasons to Drink Lemon Water | Get Inspired Everyday! 1. Lemon is alkalizing helping to balance your ph levels. I have just recently learned that disease thrives in an acidic environment so alkalizing foods are especially good.

This lemon hair gel is great to have around for extra hold, or just a little frizz control. I tried making a flaxseed gel and it worked really well, but it’s pretty messy and only keeps for a week or two in the fridge. So…, that’s where gelatin comes in. I need something around for those ‘we have an emergency’ frizz days. It keeps for several weeks in the fridge, and about a week at room temperature.

DIY Glitter Shoes | Get Inspired Everyday!

I first saw this idea on the blog Once Over Lightly, and I pinned a photo for later, (Pinterest is so handy for that). I can’t help it, I’m a sucker for anything that glitters. I don’t know if this ever happens to you, but whenever I do something as fluffy as spending a couple of hours glittering my shoes, I feel the need to put on my sweatpants and rebel a little.

Facial Oil Cleansing Method

Facial | Oil Cleansing Method

This is the third post in a 3-part series of facial care, and it is perhaps, the most important. Steps 1 and 2, the Pineapple Facial and Baking Soda Exfoliation are primarily exfoliation with some cleansing. This Oil Method Cleansing is not only cleansing, but also mildly exfoliating and moisturizing. If I had to choose just one facial treatment, it would be this one because it does a little bit of everything. At this point, I use all three equally, each treatment once or twice per week. I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my skin since I started these treatments on a regular basis.

DIY Baking Soda Exfoliation

I have used several different kinds of natural face scrubs and they all work, some better than others. Anytime you exfoliate, your face it is going to look better without several layers of dead skin dulling your complexion. Baking soda is my favorite method for several reasons; for one, it’s easy and two it’s really inexpensive. I found that I almost never used my oatmeal or sunflower scrubs simply because I would have to make them first. They both work really well but they require a little bit of preparation and preparatation = time.  Exfoliating with baking soda is also by far the most effective facial scrub I’ve used so far. For an exfoliating body scrub check out my Easiest Sugar Scrub.

DIY Homemade Pineapple Facial

A little while ago we made an easy coconut sugar scrub which is the best for soft skin all year round.  Sugar scrub isn’t suitable for your face, so what are we to do? Well, that is where a pineapple facial treatment comes in.

My sister discovered this trick a little while back and the results I’ve gotten have been fabulous. This is the quickest facial treatment I’ve ever tried with the most dramatic results. Normally, a facial takes a good 45 minutes between the scrub, mask, steam, toner, and finally moisturizing.
