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.

How to Do a DIY At-Home Facial

For many years I was super dedicated to a weekly at home facial, and my skin definitely thanked me for it. However life does get crazy at times, and I’ve fallen out of this weekly habit. But ‘now’ is always a good time to jump back on the wagon so to speak, and I’ve been working on taking better care … Read More

Homemade Honey Lavender Lip Balm

I love making lip balms because they’re the perfect balance between a chapstick and a lip gloss. Don’t get me wrong there’s definitely a place and use for all 3, but lip balms are my most used lip product.

Pineapple Mojito Body Sugar Scrub

I’ve been using my Pineapple Facial as an extremely effective treatment for my face for about 8 years now. It naturally exfoliates due to the high content of an enzyme called bromelain. It’s also anti-inflammatory and works wonders evening out my skin tone.

Cucumber Collagen Facial Mask

I just got done rinsing this mask off in the shower, and I love how smooth my skin feels right now. I’ve been putting collagen into my green smoothies for the last few months. But it was just recently I thought of putting it into a facial mask as well.

Homemade Lemon Lotion Bars

I’m not sure why I’ve never made lotion bars before, but I’m making up for lost time now! They’re even easier to make than homemade lotion because there’s no need to be emulsifying liquid together with oil. Lotion bars are solid, with no liquid ingredients at all, which also makes them incredibly shelf stable.

Soothing Calendula Honey Facial Mask

This recipe actually started out as a turmeric face mask, but that didn’t end very well. I’d been seeing recipes for turmeric face masks everywhere, and they all said something along the lines of ‘try it and see how your face just glows’. Hmmm… try it they said – you’ll glow they said – well let me tell you what, … Read More

Creamsicle Calendula Body Lotion

I’ve always loved the smell of orange and vanilla together. It must go back to my childhood love of creamsicle popsicles and orange sherbet. So I knew I wanted to create a body lotion with those poignant smells in mind. I was also thinking of natural ways to make it a nice golden color, when I finally came up with … Read More

Honey Facial Massage

This Honey Massage Facial Mask has been a go-to beauty treatment for me for years. It's just one simple ingredient, but there are so many benefits. It's a case of the sum being more than the parts. Honey is a humectant, which means that it draws water to itself, helping to keep your skin moisturized. It's anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral ... Read More
