For how long can I storage the rice water ?

I used rice water a lot on my summer break a couple of months ago. I just used the first rinse as I'm sure that the rice is clean enough (it may not be, but it worked great on me). I didn't get pimples at all. Even my cousins said that my condition improved. Not that I'm back in college & without a rice cooker/dispenser/fridge, my skin's back to breakouts.

Post image for 4 Magic Places To Apply Concealer

First of all, I’d like to start this post off with a friendly little reminder that you do not need makeup. You are gorgeous on the inside as well as the outside. There’s nothing that the presence or lack of a little makeup can do to change this about you. Know that. But for those of us who enjoy wearing makeup — especially on those days when we just aren’t feeling as on top of the world as usual… I wanted to share a little tip I came across.

I am going to try some of these ideas right away! I like them as a powder and pretty sure this will work well for me as I use coconut oil on my skin each morning and the powder will stick nicely as I am using conventional loose powder and it works well. No longer want unknown chemicals on my face! Thanks for this : )

I made my own makeup with beet root, arrowroot, cacao powder and cinnamon, but these ingredients triggered a candida attack in me. I am very, very sensitive to candida, and my health is not goodI am looking to replace the beet root powder with something non sweet, but I have no idea what to use. Also, I am looking for a replacement for the cacao powder, since the cacao irritates my skin, but I dont know what to replace it with. Ideally the ingredient is healthier than cacao, and does not irritate. The make up I made looked good, but I so very much wish to find make up that works for me, without making me ill. All help is very much appreciated.

I tried this recipe out, just to let everyone know, and here is what I have to say: First, it isn't very pigmented AT ALL. It gives a very subtle natural color on the lid, which is fine, but I was hoping for a little more color. I even tried adding more turmeric powder, but it didn't seem to do the trick. Second, I actually did get a little in my eye on accident while applying it. I can assure you that it didn't hurt at all, for the people who were wondering if it stings or anything like that, it doesn't. Overall, I enjoyed making it, but I'm not sure it's something I will use on a regular basis because of the lack of pigment. I may try it as a bronzer instead...
Jeanette -Apr 22, 2014, 5:33PM
Are you sure of the safety of these ingredients on the eye lids? Being a pharmacist, I know from my training and dealing with natural products, that the eyelids are very thin and can absorb ingredients through the lid. Also, is there any information on what happens if any of these ingredients get in your eye? Just because it is natural, does not mean it's safe for the eye area.

Great Post. I see a lot of comments about how this look turns out just plain messy instead. I like to use keratin based products to avoid Bed-Head hair from looking too messy. It helps to keep my hair without frizz.

Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers moncler angers women http://www.dcplasticsinc.com/?shop=moncler-angers-women&id=11937
NoDental Budget -Oct 28, 2014, 1:27AM
Hi, I have no dental budget or coverage at all. So I resorted to oil pulling when a very bad (for 3 years) sore near my gumline at the back of my mouth would not go away. Guess what? My gums healed and are perfect now. (I oil pull daily at the end of the day after brushing and flossing my teeth, 1 tablespoon of safflower oil, for 15 minutes swishing round.) Also I scrape my tongue daily, especially at the back (use a tongue scraper or simply a teaspoon with a flattish end, straight across rather than oval). Between the oil pulling and the tongue scraping, plus daily dental flossing and brushing with baking soda & water.....yep, you guessed it: perfectly healed gums, cavities that self-healed, and NO dental bills. My mother was a dental hygienist and she was astonished at what the oil pulling does in terms of healing. Dentists would like it if most of us didn't know about this, I am certain. But we do know.....

I had never colored my hair before trying henna on it. I have dark dark dark brown hair and the henna subtly changed it. It enhanced my natural red highlights, and gave a great light sheen to it. My hair also feels much softer and stronger after using the henna. I used 100% organic henna powder and mixed it with lemon juice 12 hours before I applied it to my hair. Then I let it sit on my hair for 4-5 hours before washing out. It was super easy and hardly any mess, I definitely recommend it. http://fabulosityfactor.blogspot.com

Steam has done wonderful things for my face. I splurged and bought the Dr. Dennis Gross facial steamer. I love it! It was definitely worth the $. It allows me to lay down and have the steamer steam my face – very relaxing.
