As always some of you will think I've lost my mind. Before you comment say to yourself 2 things. What did they do before there were chemical factories and What does the rural part of most of the world still do?
So here you are: I've eliminated Shampoo (The Net calls it Going Poo Free), Face cleanser and astringent, body wash, scrubs, and MOISTURIZER!
For Shampoo you can look it up on You Tube (Going Poo Free). I use the two big bottles at the back. One has baking soda and water in it. The other contains apple cider vinegar and water. These I use in my hair and my nether regions.
The square container contains olive oil and salt. I use this as a body scrub. It feels amazing.
The two smaller bottles contain apple cider vinegar and water in one ( I use this as a facial cleanser and zit prevention) and the other Olive oil. This I use twice a day every day on my face.
I have to admit that I was PETRIFIED to use oil on my face. I get breakouts and was positive I would have oily disgusting skin. NOT THE CASE AT ALL.
In fact...since using olive oil on my skin I have seen an improvement in my pores and skin tone. In the 3 months I've been doing this I seem to only break out right before my period.
Keep in mind I have never invested in extremely expensive cleansers and can only compare my skin to what it was before when I was using Dove soap bar on my face. But whatever....it is cheap and seems to be working and I love the fact that it is healthy. Apparently Olive Oil is the European 'secret' but I don't know if that is true or not. I know that cosmetic company's can't market or patent olive oil so why would they promote it?
I was skeptical about it all until I took the plunge and tried it. I'm glad I did.Feel free to look into it if you like.
Hope you enjoyed the post. If you want more detail just look it up yourself! There is a TON of information out there.
