beauty starts from the inside


I’ve been seeing a lot of these posts with the same damn products on all of them and I really feel like we’re recycling the same shit and there’s nothing new to read anymore which is part of the reason I made this account, to add my own remedies and routines in hope that it could help someone else~

African black soap-
Lemme tell you right now. Ditch whatever shit you’re using as a body wash RN and go cop some (RAW) African black soap. That shit is natural and is bursting with vitamin A and E. It helps with eczema too. I personally use Alaffia which also contains Shea butter and I use it everday. Love it and love my skin+it smells super fresh

Apple cider vinegar-
Add abt ¾ of a cup of ACV to your bath and let it work its magic. Its anti fungal and battles against body odor. It makes your hair shiny and is considered a skin detox bath, I personally experience softer skin. ALSO it resets your pH and fights again vaginal odor and yeast infections naturally too.

Jojoba oil-
Jojoba oil is the oil that everyone thinks coconut oil is. It is a natural moisturizer for hair and skin and it works way better than coconut oil could ever hope to do!!

Coconut oil-
Let me tell u something. In a previous post I copied a message on of my followers sent me abt coconut oil being horrible for your hair because it breaks down proteins. It got a lot of positive and negative feed back, some saying I was trying to speak for them or leave out black hair, no that is not the case. I simply copied a message and released it for public knowledge cause im here to HELP YOU NOT HURT YOU! I’m sorry if I offended anyone~ but coconut oil, regardless of hair, is not the angelic product everyones made it out to be. STOP PUTTING THAT SHIT ON YOUR SKIN IT CLOGS PORES. I use it to oil pull, its a natural way to remove the toxins from your mouth and it also whitens your teeth. You put abt a teaspoon or less of coconut oil in your mouth and swish for a minute or 2. Love that shit my teeth are so white. But other than that I wouldnt put that shit on my hair or skin, unless you’re shaving your legs or sometin. Although I do put it on my pussy after I shave and idk what i’d do without it. But coconut oil is NOT for everything.

Rose water-
Sorry for the extremely long coconut oil excerpt lol this one’s short. Rose water can be used as a toner/makeup setter. It controls oil and hydrates your skin. It also has antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Its also good on dry/frizzy hair

Castor oil+Vitamin E oil-
Another 2 great oils. I’m lazy and didnt want to make another 2 oil sections lol but basically castor oil can be used on eyebrows/eyelashes to thicken them. Its also a natural laxative. Vitamin E oil is a great hair/skin moisturizer and heals scars.

If you arent taking biotin everyday I want you to go to your local pharmacy and cop a bottle because beauty starts from the inside. Its a hair skin nail vitamin and boosts healthy growth of hair/nails and keeps skin healthy. I do love it.

Charcoal soap-
Instead of using a typical bar of soap, invest in a charcoal one instead. Charcoal contains a powder called Binchōtan which cleanses and moisturizes skin. For all u natural bitches out there.

Also a lil side note~ for anyone who wants to comment to mine or any other ‘hoe tip’ posts saying “these are life tip not hoe tips” SHUT UP! We know! But these tips were originally for tips and products to be as sexy and well maintained as they can be. Usually before somekind of sex appointment. Let the hoes have this instead of trying to shame it

anonymous asked:

can i request rfa with v and saeran included ( if you dont mind) reacting to mc who doesnt like taking or having their pictures taken bc they thought they look ugly. actually ive asked this on another mm blog, but i'd love to see what you would come out with :)) tysm 💕

Thank you for your request! I hope I did alright on this one! I had the reactions in my head but couldn’t find the words to properly describe them so I hope it turned out well :)

Zen: He loves taking selfies and he wants to take some with you but when he finds out that you don’t like taking pictures because you think you look ugly, he is absolutely shocked. He now (even more than before) compliments you and your appearance because he finds you extremely beautiful. He expresses this every single day and will never stop, ever.

Yoosung: Very surprised when you say you’re ugly and don’t like taking pictures because he finds you stunning and adorable. He admires your beauty and really wishes you thought of yourself better. He’ll give you at least one compliment a day and try give you more if he wasn’t so embarrassed. He loves seeing your smile and that’s what makes his heart pound.

Jaehee: Understands why you think yourself as ugly because she understands as a woman however she can see your beauty. She’ll tell you repeatedly that you are beautiful and you shouldn’t think otherwise. The photos don’t matter to her, she just wants you to have a better opinion of yourself.

Jumin: Just gives you a silent stare which you know as,”are you serious?” He’s stated multiple times what he thinks about your beauty yet he feels low-key disappointed that you would beat yourself down in such a way. He doesn’t understand why you can’t just be confident about your appearance so he’ll do anything he can to make sure you begin to love yourself.

707: Begins to put messages around the place with little compliments about you or your appearance. He wants you to love yourself as much he loves you, though he wants to love you a bit more. One day while you’re on the couch, he’ll turn off the lights and in bright lights he’ll show the words,“I think you’re beautiful.”
Then there will be a flash, he just took a picture of you.

V: From the little bit of you he can see, he knows instantly about how beautiful you are. When he smiles, he smiles and it hurts him to know that soon this will be a sight he can’t see. As a photographer, he wants to see the beauty inside you and that starts from your self esteem. He’ll continue to encourage you in hopes that you’ll love yourself, then he’ll be able to see your true beauty.

Saeran: When you tell him you think you’re ugly and don’t want to take a photo, he just looks at you blankly. He knows you’re beautiful, he can see it but can’t think of a way to say it. Amongst his loss of words, he just says it in a straightforward manner. This leaves his face completely red and hence Tsundere!Saeran appears.

Comfort: PromptoXReader

Just a PromptoXReader oneshot. This is Part 1 of my Comfort oneshot series. Everyone reading this is also welcome to come by and request some FFXV X Reader fics :)

Anyways, enjoy~

Prompto’s eyes welled up with tears as he held your shaking body in his arms. You had stumbled into his house, tear stricken and broken-hearted. Again.


Prompto didn’t get it. You were beautiful, inside and out. You were devoted, loyal and encouraging to everyone you were close to. Why and how did people continuously break your heart with no remorse?

And the one thing that broke Prompto’s heart the most, was the fact that he was possibly— no, definitely part of the problem.

Zoe Kravitz: 'Braids banish hair problems'

Zoe Kravitz kept her “complicated” hair in the braids from her movie Dope to make life easier.

The 27-year-old star takes after her parents, musician Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, when it comes to her edgy aesthetic and often switches up her look. Zoe’s hair never stays the same for long and she’s rocked everything from shiny straight locks to her current braided do - which is one of her favourites.

“I think all brown girls have a complicated relationship with their hair,” she matter-of-factly told Byrdie. “Oh, I put in braids for the character I played in the movie Dope, and I’m like, ‘This is nice.’ Then I kept them in. It’s good for my hair, and it looks cool and it’s easy, and I don’t have to do anything when it’s done. It’s great.”

The same simplicity is applied when it comes to the rest of her beauty regime, especially in maintaining a fresh complexion. Zoe has a striking resemblance to her 48-year-old mother and has picked up plenty of tips from her over the years.

“Eating well, drinking a lot of water, washing your face each night,” she listed. “She always taught me to put coconut oil on my body. She told me as a child, ‘I want to keep you as soft as you were when you were baby.’ Coconut oil is key for sure.

“I really like Arcona products. They give great facials, too.”

She’s careful about what she eats too, sticking to mainly organic foods so she knows exactly what she’s putting in her body. Zoe believes beauty and health start from the inside and makes a big effort to grow her own fruit and vegetables herself to avoid preservatives.

But people can only see what’s on the outside, with the Mad Max: Fury Road actress naming both David Bowie and Audrey Hepburn as her influences.

“They are (polar opposites)!” she grinned. “That kind of describes me in a nutshell. I love the craziness of him and the simplicity and the chicness of her.”
