How does it feel to have an #aloe vera at home (and use it)?

One of my dreams recently came true: I own an aloe vera and it lives on my kitchen counter.

From time to time, I cut one of its leaves and use the pulp for smoothies or for my skin.

Adventures in nopoo land #naturalbeauty for the hair

Adventures in nopoo land #naturalbeauty for the hair

I tried the nopoo method to take care of my hair in a more natural way.

The idea is simple: instead of using regular shampoo which can deprive the scalp from natural oils, you apply apple cider vinegar or lemon juice on the hair. You can also do a dry shampoo with bicarbonate of soda.

The result was so bad for me. I could not stand having this greasy hair any longer. After two months of trying the nopoo method, I did not go back to regular shampoo however. I decided to use a natural olive oil soap and it is great at the moment.

Have you tried the nopoo method for your hair? How was it for you? Please share with the community and let’s help each other sisters!

What are my 3 beauty #products that I use mornings and evenings?

What are my 3 beauty #products that I use mornings and evenings?

I was asked by a kind person on instagram (@clairesamuelenglish) which were the products I was using on my skin in the morning and in the evening.

The list is very simple, minimalistic even:

1. I cleanse my face with olive oil (a good make-up remover by the way)

2. I rinse the skin with apple cider vinegar

3. I use a day cream (even at night) from the organic brand Weleda

This is all and this is perfect! This simple beauty ritual makes my skin glow and leaves me with plenty of time to create beautiful things.

After washing your face, massage a little bit of olive oil on your skin while it is still moist.

Then lock the hydration by applying your face cream.

Sleep and observe your beautiful skin the next morning!

Mum did you put make-up on? #clearskin and 3 beauty secrets

Mum did you put make-up on? #clearskin and 3 beauty secrets

I had no foundation on, yet my daughter asked me if I was wearing make-up. Indeed, it has now been so many years since I stopped wearing make-up. I have three secrets for you:

  • Raw vegan food,
  • Colonics,
  • Skin care using oil to cleanse the face, apple cider vinegar to rinse and a simple organic face cream.

I highly recommend the great book by Nadine Artemis called Renegate Beauty to know more about natural beauty.
