Post image for Whipped Coconut Oil For Hair And Skin

We talk a lot about oils here on the Free People blog, and for good reason – they’re amazing for both your external and internal health. Personally, I’m a fan of coconut oil: I cook with it, slather it on my skin, rub it into the ends of my hair, and even add it to my coffee and tea. Read more »

My undereye area is my "problem" area. Although others tell me they can't notice a less than ideal sleep night or work overload undereye bag syndrome, I can. I have been using Duross and Langel (based out of Philadelphia) nighty night eye cream. It's amazing. My eyes stay hydrated even after I wash this off. In the AM, I found the Garnier Rollerball that's tinted is a life saver. It's about 10 dollars but will last you 6 months or so. My friend got hooked and started concealing her whole face with it (she does her T zone, undereyes, highlights cheeks and under chin) My mom and sister now use it, both of whom are pretty leery on drugstore makeup or trying new things, but it does work! You can even keep it in the freezer for an extra wake-me-up in the morning as the rollerball is metal so it can reduce inflammation under the eyes. Hope this helps! Here's to youthful eyes...

I also find it hard to find a perfect concealer. I prefer a natural concealer, which goes along with the rest of my natural skin care products. There's are lot of different brands around, one that works for me is soap and salve.

Lemons can help improve digestion. Lemons are a great source of some vitamins and minerals, like Vitamin C, Potassium, and Iron (these have some great benefits, especially when dealing with sickness like colds and flu). Lemons help your system flush out toxins faster, both through liver stimulation and through increased urination rate.

Thanks for sharing your insights! Natural skin products are difficult to come by and the different brands are hard to choose from. This makes my choice for the best organic products a little easier...
Louisa -Aug 15, 2014, 8:04PM
Lots of interesting tips here.. thank you. I have been converting over to natural products over the last 5 years and although not organic, Arbonne's products are very natural and offer amazing results. Their Its a long story mascara in black actually strengthens your lashes over time.

Arbonne's products are Vegan, botanically based and made without parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde,gluten, dyes, mineral oil etc. Best part is getting these products at a discount with a 45 day guarantee

Elizabeth - there is a wealth of information on the internet. Start with some basic ground reading on the philosophies of Ayurveda which will be a great foundation to understanding why many of the ancient practises are great to incorporate into your day. Meara - they are they Novella Royalle bell bottoms from Free People! :) X x

Ayurveda reminds us about something that our ancestors did without thinking, naturally – to follow the rhythms of nature.
