Face, Skin & Hair Care: Here's Why I Love My Natural & Affordable Beauty Routine! by Ikram M.
We all want a radiant and youthful complexion as well as beautiful and healthy hair. But our quest for these don’t have to break the bank or expose us to toxic products. Here’s what I use:
- Face: The face is extremely sensitive and can’t tolerate invasive products. For this reason, I only wash my face with water and moisturize it with oils like pomegranate seed oil, extra virgin olive oil (it’s not just for cooking!) grapeseed oil, etc. In the winter, I use coconut oil or shea butter.
- Skin: Like my face, I like to be kind to my skin. I use coconut and extra virgin olive oils. In the winter, I make my own moisturizer by mixing coconut oil, shea butter and essential oils.
- Hair: I make my own shampoo, which is a mixture of coconut milk, liquid castile soap and essential oils. It works just like store-bought shampoos, but doesn’t expose me to nasty toxins. For deep conditioning, I love mixing a whole avocado with coconut oil. Once blended, I add a few drops of lavender or peppermint essential oils, as they promote hair growth and are good for the scalp. I apply it evenly to my hair and leave it in for about an hour while doing house chores. Voila!
