Ostin viime kesänä "suolasaippuan", eli köntin, joka on himalajan ruususuolaa. Sen pitäisi myös olla avuksi hikoiluun ja kutiavalle iholle, mutta eihän sitä voi käyttää laisinkaan! Olen kokeillut sitä suihkussa ehkä kaksi tai kolme kertaa, ja aina se suorastaan raapii ihon verinaarmuille. Osaisiko joku kertoa, miten sitä tulisi oikeaoppisesti käyttää?
|Niin suloinen, mutta niin raastava...|
Joulun alla tein ison satsin vaahdotettua vartalovoita. Olen käyttänyt voita vasta Eksottiset voit-purkista, mutta voin jo sanoa, että mixi on jopa parempaa kuin vaahdotettu karite! Se on aavistuksen kevyemmän oloista, ja vähentää rasvauksen tarvetta huomattavasti.
Kirpulle jo joskus kerroinkin, että käytän meikin alla sekoitusta, jossa on puolet aloe geeliä ja puolet aprikoosinkiviöljyä. Erittäin hyvä sekoitus päiväkäyttöön, ja tarpeeksi hyvin ravistettuna voiteesta tulee aivan glitterimäinen. Se jopa jättää ihollekin aavistuksen hehkua.
I was supposed to write about deodorants for a while, but somehow I just could't do that until now when Kirppu wrote about this too. I stopped using antiperspirants with aluminum about a year ago. First there was no problems at all - because my pores were still full of aluminum, so my armpits didn't sweat at all. When aluminum started to vanish from my body started also so much perspiration that I was desperate and I also became stinky. I still didn't want to give up and start to poison my body again so I went on with this more organic line. I used my home made deodos with clay and bees wax about six months, but that clay smudged my clothes. After that I have used sometimes my own baking soda mix and sometimes aluminum and alcohol free deodos from apothecary. Because in long term that soda mix can irritate armpits I use pharmacy products at times. Sebamed Balsam Deco from pharmacy store is mild and harmless, but I think it's rather ineffective too. Next I tried Tom's of Maine, and at first it felt okay. But then I noticed that my armpits skin was almost "burned" so I needed to stop using that product - even if I had half of it still left. Latest deodo purchase was also from pharmacy store, little bit more expensive Avène and it is okay, at least for now. I have baking soda, extra virgin coconut oil, Maizena and aloe gel for cooling skin and little bit of apple cider vinegar for neutralize soda in my soda mix. That mix is very effective, but because it is not an antiperspirant and won't stop perspiration I have ruined many of my clothes by sweating so much.
Last summer I bought "salt soap", that is a lump of Himalayan salt. That's supposed to help with perspiration problems and itching skin too - but I cannot use it at all! I have tried it two or three times in shower, but every time it scratches the skin badly. Could anybody tell me how am I supposed to use this one?
Before Christmas I made big batch of whipped body butters. I have used only that Excotic Body Butter jar so far, but I can already tell that this mix is even better than whipped shea butter! It is little bit lighter than shea butter but I need to oil my skin much less than earlier.
I coloured my hair again with henna powder before Christmas. This time I used mix that had half of frozen mix from some earlier colouring time and half of Satva from market. I was little bit afraid what the result might be because I didn't remember what was in that frozen part. But I was very happy with the result, positively surprised! And now I don't need that much of colouring stuff anymore, especially if I don't let grey hair roots grow too much. I am going to freeze every leftovers now on, because I cannot get Light Mountain from stores here anyway. And of course it is more ecological if you don't waste any good and useful stuff.
