This is great! Thanks for posting this :-)

Wow a really great post! I've loved your intro about Ayurveda, I'm so tired of shallow comments like "it's different/natural so it's good" about ancient medicines that usually instead of supporting the medicine end up taking its credibility. You've explained it so well.

I'm with the girls above...too many chemicals in these products! If you search deeper about the ingredients in most of the products that offer sun protection you will prefer a simpler moisturizer without spf...almost all have terrible chemicals for our body, beauty and health! And please...cruelty free!!!!

I have found that clear mascara is absolute perfection in the summer! Swipe some on your lashes at night and you'll find that your lashes look even longer in the morning. xoxo, Laurel

Post image for Natural Tips For Clear Skin

Acne. It’s just something that happens when we’re younger. It’ll go away on it’s own. Right? But on my 26th birthday, when my acne of 13 years was at its worst to date, I must say… I begged to differ. Read more »

You don't know how much this post helped me. I have struggled with acne since I was eleven or twelve years old and am now sixteen years old. It would go away for a while, then flair up and be so bad that I would be totally upset and cut myself off from even going out if I could prevent it. Right now my face is in that phase. My cheeks and chin are horribly broken out for the first time in months. The only beacon of light is that I can cover it up with makeup, but makeup washes off and acne is still acne. I started using Noxzema. It comes in a big blue container, kind of looks gross and like cottage cheese (ew!), and smells like aloe. It's used for sunburns, too. And after a few weeks, the little acne I had did go away. I didn't have much of it, just some pimples here and there that I wanted to get rid of. But recently, my face has been breaking out... EVERYWHERE. I have naturally sensitive skin and even break out on my back and chest, too, but I have never been as badly broken out as I am now. I thought it was hormones, because I'm still growing up and what not. But this is really bad and nothing is helping. Dermatologists, doctors, home remedies, the whole nine yards. I stumbled on this blog while looking for fashion advice (ironic, huh?) And upon looking on these blogs, I am so fortunate for doing so. My diet is literally filled with dairy. I even drink an extra glass of whole milk in the morning because I am calcium-insufficient. Seriously, I eat yogurt, ice cream, you name it. I am going to try removing dairy and sugar from my diet for a few weeks and see how it works out. I am excited because it also gives me an excuse to stop eating junk (I know, any reason is a good reason, but I am a chocolate fiend). I am anticipating that it'll work out because, like most of the commenters, I have had acne horribly for my whole life. Everyone is different, but if anyone's skin is as bad as mine and cutting dairy out of their diet worked for them, I'm hoping it'll work for me. If all else fails, I will try some of the oils that everyone listed. The chemicals from all of the ointments and topical treatments I've used - prescription pills and ointments, home remedies, and substances from the pharmacy - have hurt my skin so badly.... On that note, does anyone know oils that would help with scars? Thank you...

NEEM OIL IS THE BEST! It's naturally antibacterial and it almost completely cleared up my skin in a couple days. Whenever I don't use it for a couple days I break out, but then when a go back to using it every night my skin is clear. It's the oil pressed from the Neem evergreen tree, and surprisingly it smells super weird, but totally worth it. You can find organic neem oil at Whole Foods.

This routine is very similar to my yoga classes I take, and let me say that IT WORKS! I do it 4 times a week and am starting to see strong and sexy arm and core muscles :)

Love this... I usually do a loooong and slow yoga routine and forget about doing things like lunge jumps. I do feel like some of these exersizes are best incorporated into an intermediate to advanced yoga routine- without the supervision of an experienced teacher it can be easy to put too much stress on joints when doing a lot of jumping. http://www.etsy.com/shop/HypnoticaVintage

Post image for How To Detoxify With Calcium Bentonite Clay

Whether we want to face it or not, we are constantly exposed to toxin upon toxin in our daily life – both internally and externally – and sometimes it gets to be a little too much for our bodies to handle on their own. That, my friends, is where calcium bentonite clay comes to help save the day. Read more »

Just like our mother earth, I am becoming increasingly electromagnetically challenged. Clay may prove to be of great benefit to those, like myself, who suffer from Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF, EMR, EMS) which is now proliferating the planet at an alarming rate. I would love to experiment with Clay! Sadly though, even as a financially savvy senior, the cost of adding Clay to my daily routine, is not as yet, darn well feasible. Question. Can Clay neutralize "Stray Electrical Currents" -- a phenomenon that I believe is at the root of "colony collapse disorder" for many many species, including our own? C4st.org

Great writeup! The so called Multani Mitti or Fuller's Earth contains calcium Bentonite and has amazing effects on oily skin. You can mix it with RoseWater for instant results!

I love it! This is also a great way to take your cleanser with you when you travel. They can take away your liquid cleanser, but won't bother with the moist cotton rounds!

This is such a good idea!

I loved this post! I have suffered from insomnia since forever, and I have slowly learnt to live with it. It really helps me to listen to certain pleasant music, I even created a list in Spotify, and now my brain relates the music with sleeping, it really helps me. I also realized I happen to sleep better when I am together with my bf. Just to know that he is there, feeling with warm body and smell relaxes me, and I fall asleep faster. Even if I cannot fall asleep, his presence makes it easier to bear the insomnia :)

I have a problem going to sleep too. I read, but then I get engrossed in the book. Cherry juice sounds interesting. www.LinorStorecom.blogspot.com
