I think that people are more selfish by the day. Instigating them to be even more selfish smells like counselling business to me.

I've also read that redness-reducing eye drops aren't good for daily use, but I don't think artificial tears are bad to use daily. I have dry eyes, use them daily, and I've never had my eye doctor warn me against using them so often. Someone let me know if you've heard different! :)
Maria -Jan 30, 2016, 5:37PM
Glad someone else already commented on this. Using eye drops every day is terrible for your eyes. Worst advice ever.

I've been using organic argan oil on my whole body + face + hair for a while now and I am really happy of it! One product for everything :) Recently I even did my own scrub adding one tbs argan oil + one tbs brown sugar. It works amazing! I'm really into trying coconut oil now and after reading this article I'm even more convinced :) - Marta www.surfragette.com

I have been cleansing with oil for nearly a year after my daughter got me on to it. I am 62 so have 'mature' skin and have always had oily/combo skin. I use macadamia oil and I have really noticed a difference. My skin is smoother and softer. I wash my face in the shower and just leave it on and pat off what remains at the end. I might try the coconut oil. I use it for other moisturizing (great on the feet) , even as toothpaste, but will give it a go on my face.

I've done a 3 day juice cleanse with Juice Crafters and I hated it. I was so hungry, tired, dizzy and not well at all. I hope by trying it with a different brand like Juice Served Here, it goes better. http://throughmyowneyes.com

I really love this!! I never considered braiding my hair after a workout, but it definitely seems like a really nice idea. Also, I always use sea salt spray to add texture to my hair, but I never really thought about using it after a workout, but I really like the idea! And dry shampoo is definitely a must!!!

Wow, love all the ideas! Interesting comment on the PH an d applying to the face....I just tried a cocnut oil and baking soda, more oil than soda, and scrubbed my face with it and it felt wonderful but I know the skin likes things more acidic. Would adding a little vitamin C powder make it more acidic? Love the photos too Emily!
Mara -Jan 28, 2016, 10:03PM
APPLYING BAKING SODA TO YOUR SKIN IS NOT SAFE!!!!!!!!! DO NOT APPLY IT TO YOUR FACE. Baking soda has a pH of 9. Your skin has a pH of 5.5-6 and if you're male then it's more in the 6.5 area. Because baking soda is so alkaline, it will literally burn your skin and destroy the delicate acid mantle. This results in dry skin, blemishes, accelerated signs of aging, etc. Same goes for using lemons; they have a pH of 2 and will also destroy the acid mantle. Anything you use on your face MUST be in the pH range of 4-6. A pH under 4 (or 3.5, can't remember) is reserved for professional chemical peels done by a professional. And nobody in their right mind creates skin care products with a pH as high as 9 :/

You shouldn't be putting essential oils on the skin around your eyes :( It causes irritation within the skin that you can't see or feel, but it can cause wrinkles to form more rapidly and skin to droop. Especially since the skin around the eye is the most delicate and thin. If you really want to lessen the stank of ghee, you can infuse it with dried herbs such as Ginkgo biloba which stimulates circulation, reduces irritation, relieves puffiness, and reduces damage caused by environmental stressors (sun, pollution). I know you guys mean well, but you really need to do plenty of research into the science of the skin and the many ingredients we use on it before creating recipes that could drastically damage someones face :(

I love konjac sponges, they are so good for your skin! I recommended konjac sponges to all my friends, because since I use one every morning and evening (i use it with aleppo soap) my skin is getting better and better. No dry patches, no blackheads and glowing skin. So good.
