Maintain Soft Hair and Skin with Coconut Oil

Use Coconut oil for hair and skin: I put 1 tbsp of Coconut Oil to about a cup of my hair conditioner inside a bottle. Then I put it in my hair and on my skin. It hasn't made my hair oily either, but instead, leaves it very soft and supple. After I applied the coconut oil conditioner to my hair (and left it in and didn't wash out) I curled it in sponge curlers before bed then when I woke up, I had softly coiled hair. Very nice hair and pretty style if curled right.

Old boxes of baking soda

Use the 'old' boxes of baking soda from your fridge and freezer for cleaning your pots and pans, washing up after greasy or yard work, final rinse on your dogs bath, cleaning jewelry stones.
Put it in a Big empty spice shaker and it is handy in the garage, shed and under the sinks. Leaves skin SILKY smooth too!

Use cream, NOT lotion

Some lotions evaporate so fast, they do more harm than good. This is according to my dermatologist, who tells me to use cream instead of lotion.

Drinking Water on Time

Drinking a glass of water before bed, and first thing in the morning as greatly reduced my acne, and I believe it's what has accelerated my weightloss efforts. I've always drank water through out the day, but now that I purposefully drink one glass before bed and first thing, I've noticed major changes in my skin. It's timing that matters.

Pamper Yourself

Make dates with yourself to pamper your body. Having a beautiful body doesn't rely on your dress size. Take time to care for your body and skin. By learning to care for your body externally you'll be more inclined to care for body internally. Moisturize your skin, smooth on a face mask, fashion your fingernails, run a warm bath, exfoliate, massage your neck, shape your eyebrows, and turn on your favorite music. Even waking up 15 minutes early to prepare your outfit can solidify a successful day.

Very Hydrated skin

After 10-15 minutes in the shower, exfoliate using a scrubbing glove & some body wash or soap. Turn off the water and immediately grab your lotion. Water droplets & all, lotion up! Wait 5 minutes then blot off w/towel. Air dry the rest of the way & enjoy your skin feeling hydrated all day long!

Diaper Cream!

This might sound obvious but if I think I can get away without a shower after the gym I get "hot spots" in my body creases. It even happens in the summer if it is particularly hot. Use diaper cream with zinc in it on those spots and it will soothe your skin and keep it healthy.
