It makes me sad when women of one skin tone sometimes damage their skin to get another skin tone. It makes me sad when women of one type think that the women of another type are so much more beautiful.
I noticed that most of the time our hair color, eye color and skin tone match perfectly together. Don’t you agree?
Natural beauty for me is not avoiding make-up. It is honoring how we are. Make-up is an art thing. It highlights natural beauty. Maybe one day I will wear a bit of make-up again. We’ll see. This is another topic.
My point is: woman, you are beautiful. Just as you are. Shine in your unique light. Comparison is a killer. Develop more of the beauty you already have. Enjoy your very unique beauty my friend my sister.
Baking powder and activated charcoal to naturally clean and whiten the teeth plus olive oil to create a home-made toothpaste!
Soft and silky legs mean that the skin has not been damaged by shaving. I prefer waxing.
Then, our skin can be tremendously soften if we use a a piece of natural loofah under the shower. Fresh pure aloe vera and olive oil are my favorite choices when it comes to hydration of the legs.
Of course as always, beauty starts from the inside so may we take care of our thoughts and what food we put into our body.
I love super activated charcoal. I take a little bit of charcoal in water almost every morning. Charcoal absorbs the intestinal bad stuff.
My second useful tip to not be bloated anymore is to use enzymes, as Dan The Man speaks so eloquently about. He has tons of videos on the subject, such as “LIFE AND DEATH BEGINS IN THE COLON“.
I buy my enzymes Enzymagic on Raw Living.
Do you know the amazing woman named Kate Magic? I follow what she is putting out into the world for more than 10 years now. Something that never changed is the emphasis on internal cleaning of the intestines. In her last and great book The empowered woman, she writes that she does “two enemas a month and four colonics a year“. This is indeed my first useful tip for an almost (because we are not perfect) flat belly: enemas and colonics.
My second tip is to work on my core. Yoga With Adriene has been so helpful in this regard. For instance, the “Core Strength Ritual – Yoga With Adriene” is amazingly effective. After two children, getting some abs back is so gratifying. It is never too late. My second “baby” is now 9 years old!
To avoid using chemicals on my daughter’s feet warts, I use either lemon peel marinated in white vinegar or oregano essential oil on a little plaster.
Hypafix is really helpful to keep in place the lemon peel on the wart or the plaster with oregano oil.
To clean my teeth, I use a drop of peppermint essential oil and a pinch of bicarbonate of soda (baking powder) on an electric toothbrush.
It is also possible to add coconut oil, as described in my video “How to make a #toothpaste and a face scrub using coconut oil?“.
I am grateful for the fantastic book by Nadine Artemis, Renegate Beauty, which is a great source of inspiration as regards natural beauty.
Of course, I recorded a review of Renegate Beauty on youtube “Renegate #Beauty – 10 #books to rebuild our life Series – 10“.
