skin care with shira!

So I watch Shira on youtube…she’s great!  She’s out there and all over the place but she has researched stuff going on there that makes sense.  This one is on skin care – ok she talks alot about Dr. Haushka’s products yes (I don’t use them because yes they DO cost an arm and a leg), but she makes sense about alot of skin care that makes you think when you are out there buying creme’s and whatnot…so enjoy and be enlightened!  Oh and you may want to watch more of this skin care series…and please do as she says and google Jocelyn Wildenstein!!!

the power of Olives…

Olive oil is great for hair, but it’s also really great for skin too.  My mother always says how when we were babies, my grandmother always told her to rub us in olive oil at bath time and it did wonders to keep our skin nice and supple.  Anyway, I’ve been struggling with eye make up remover.  I’ve had the gel types which are just icky messy, the liquid ones which leave your eyes really dry feeling.  So the other day I was reading somewhere about olive oil being a make up remover.  So I figured I would give it a try.  I put some on to a cotton face pad, pressed it onto my closed eye and let it sort of do it’s magic for a little bit, then wiped it off.  As I swept the cotton pad over my eyes, I could feel the make up just get dissolved away by the olive oil and it all came off fairly easy.  Best part is it didn’t leave the skin around my eyes feeling too dry.  After this, I washed my face with neem soap which I am trying out and wow, the skin round my eyes was so soft and yummy feeling.  It’s definitely an asilia prime!!!
