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 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!!
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.
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.
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
As Midsummer is coming around I wanted to write about it but quickly realised that it would make a very long post, so it will be done in parts. This is the first one.
Folklore – Midsummer
mid-June, school is out and nature has burst into life. It seems like the sun
never sets. In fact, in the north of Scandinavia it doesn’t, and in the south
only for an hour or two. This calls for celebration!
is a national holiday that is still celebrated in most of Northern Europe. The
holiday is celebrated on or very near the summer solstice on the 23th
of June, when the sun never sets and the nights are light and warm.
Christmas, midsummer is the most important holiday in the Swedish calendar. And
for some, the very most important. In Sweden the Midsummer is such an important
festivity that there have been serious discussions to make the Midsummer’s Eve
into the National Day of Sweden, instead of June 6th.
to Christianity, the purpose of midsummer is to honor John the Baptist, but it
is highly doubtful it started out as a Christian holiday considering that
literally everything a midsummer celebration entails is pagan as hell. European midsummer-related holidays, traditions,
and celebrations are pre-Christian in origin, with the Scandinavian Midsummer
being mentioned in the old Icelandic sagas (800-1000 AD) .
solstice itself has remained a special moment of the annual cycle of the year
since Neolithic times. The concentration of the observance is not on the day as
we reckon it, commencing at midnight or at dawn, as it is customary for
cultures following lunar calendars to place the beginning of the day on the
previous eve at dusk at the moment when the Sun has set.
successful midsummer never-ending lunch party formula involves flowers in your
hair, dancing around a pole, singing songs while drinking unsweetened,
flavoured schnapps and downing a whole load of pickled herring, sill served
with delightful new potatoes, chives and sour cream. The traditional
accompaniment is a cold beer and schnapps, preferably spiced. Every time the
glasses are refilled, singing breaks out anew. The Vikings like their drinking songs, and the
racier the better.
Delicate print means delicates colors for me so I’ve used this sweet color by OPI called Don’t Burst my Bubble and No place like Chrome by Essie for a subtle stamping. Maybe too subtle…but the result looked good to me.
This is Strokkur Geyser in Iceland, a classic tourist location as it erupts like this basically every 5-10 minutes. Watch how the bubble of water bursts out of the way as the weight of the water is overcome - classic example of how geysers work.
