Makeup is one of those things that I personally hate to love. It takes time to put on, but the end result can lift up your spirits, and help you feel put together. Read more »

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

I used to be a big makeup routine person, but I've found (unless I'm going out somewhere special) that less is more on a day-to-day basis. My routine usually goes something like this: coconut oil (moisturizer), concealer, brows, eyeliner, mascara, lips. When I travel, I use the same pencil or powder on my brows & as my eyeliner to save space/time too! In the cooler months I use a powder foundation, but in the summer I like to go lighter and forego the whole foundation step altogether and just use coconut oil as a moisturizer to give my skin a healthy glow. <3 dani www.shopdisowned.com http://blog.shopdisowned.com

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 »

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.

Getting rid of dairy works to get rid of acne because dairy is full of estrogen and other hormones which can put your own off balance. I used to want to be a veterinarian and worked in a dairy barn for a short period of time to get experience working with large animals. It was true that they injected cows with hormones to force them to produce more milk. They would jab the cow with the needle and then a minute or two later, they would milk it. Then they pretend that it doesn't enter the milk and they sell it to people. You also shouldn't replace dairy with soy. Soy also has estrogens in it that put your own hormones off balance. Soy should only be eaten by people with low-estrogen problems, which most people are not even close to having that issue!! Flax, dairy and soy are foods with the highest amounts of estrogen, followed by legumes and grains. You can find lists of specific foods online. You can also take DIM supplements to take the estrogens out of your body.

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!

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
