Hydrate Skin: 3 Top Products from The Body Shop, Inecto & Elizabeth Arden
Dehydration is a common skin care problem for most of us meaning it’s always good to have a few products in mixed into the regular skin care routine that will actively work to rebalance water levels and sooth skin in the process. With that in mind I thought I’d mention a few new products that I’ve been testing out over the past few weeks and been impressed with. First up is The Body Shop who recently launched their Camomile collection which features a calming cleansing oil (above) that is great for all skin types and will remove make-up, re-hydrate and soothe skin.
Whether worn as a mask over night for sensitive/dehydrated skin or as an on the spot treatment Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour Cream is an absolute cult classic that I’ve always championed. Many don’t love the smell but good news is that it comes in unscented now as well as regular! Finally, fans of coconut will love the new Inecto range which features products that contain pure coconut oil to smooth and soothe skin. The range is extremely affordable and quite extensive but I love the hand cream, it smells delicious, just like a holiday in a bottle!
Inecto is available from Superdrug and independent pharmacies nationwide now, The Body Shop is on Grafton St and Elizabeth Arden is in Debenhams.
I'm the girl in my profile picture, and my curly hair gets drier every day :( is there something I should be doing to improve my hair quality??
Hi, gorgeous! Use 100% pure coconut oil (heated/melted) on your hair every couple days, just a little bit, and from about mid-length to the ends. It absorbs into your hair shaft and is super moisturizing without being super greasy if you use just enough. You can do hot oil treatments once a week. Heat up a lot of coconut oil and apply it all over your hair and leave it for an hour or so, then wash it out. You can use other oils too but coconut oil works best for me without being super greasy. Hope this helps 😊💖
With some new products of ours coming out very soon, we wanted to ask if you knew whether coconut oil was your hair’s best friend? It is excellent for conditioning, hair growth, fighting dandruff, improved styling, and hopefully this isn’t a problem, but will repel and kill lice! This is the secret of beach babes everywhere! 😎🌴😍 #JustPickedCoCo #Coconuts #CoconutOil #Oil #Condition #Strengthen #BeautifulHair #Hair #Beautiful #Beach #BeachBabe #GoldenLocks #AllNatural #Pure #ColdPressed #Minerals #Vitamins #Hot #Summer #Healthy
By using coconut oil on hair, you can protect and moisturize your scalp leading to fostering of healthy hair growth. Actually it is one of the most effective natural hair conditioner. It is one of the essential hair oils that are effective for all types. Go for pure, unrefined and virgin coconut oil, which is ideal choice for all your hair needs. In this article you will find how to use coconut oil on your hair to have a healthy and shiny thick hair growth :
1. Put on old clothes. Coconut oil can get a little drippy, so put on an old t-shirt or drape a towel around your shoulders to prevent it from getting on your nice clothes. It’s best to start the conditioning treatment in your bathroom, but you’ll be able to move around while you let it soak into your hair for a few hours. 2. Comb your hair to distribute the coconut oil evenly.
3. Choose a covering for your hair. You can use a plastic shower cap, a large sheet of plastic wrap, or a second old t-shirt to wrap up your hair. Choose something you’ll be able to keep in place for several hours, or even overnight. 4. Measure 3 to 5 tablespoons of coconut oil into a microwave-safe bowl. The amount of coconut oil you’ll need depends on the length and thickness of your hair. If you have long, thick hair, use 5; if your hair is shorter and thinner, you only need 3 or 4.
• Use unrefined, rather than refined, coconut oil. Refined coconut oil has additives and is put through processes that remove some of the natural compounds that make it so healthy for your hair and skin. Unrefined coconut oil is complete in its natural, healthy goodness.
• It’s okay if you accidentally use more coconut oil than your hair really needs. It’s all going to be washed out, anyway!
5. Heat up the coconut oil in the microwave. Put the bowl in the microwave and cook it for about 30 seconds on high. Give it a stir and cook it for another 30 seconds, until it has completely melted. You want the oil just warm enough to melt so it becomes easier to apply to your hair. You can melt coconut oil with your hands if you don’t have a microwave. Melt one tablespoon at a time by holding it between your palms and gently pushing them together. Coconut oil melts with very little heat.
• You can also heat up coconut oil on the stove. Scoop it into a small saucepan and heat it up over low heat.
• You can also heat up coconut oil by running the jar under hot water in a sink until it melts which will only take a few seconds.
6. Rub the coconut oil into your hair. Let it cool down for a few moments so it’s not piping hot, then pour the coconut oil around the top of your head, evenly distributing it around your scalp. Use your fingers to massage it in and smooth it down your hair shaft all the way to the tips. Continue massaging it into your hair until your hair is completely drenched in coconut oil.

Step 1: wet/damp hair. My hair doesnt need to be stretched, so if yours does start off with stretched hair. In this case, I just shampooed and conditioned my hair.
Step 2: do 5 big braids (you can do the part in the middle if you prefer) and put foam rollers at the ends. No rubber bands cause they make your ends look straight at the end of the braids. In my braids I would wet my hair a little more (I prefer my braids to be a little more than damp), use 100% pure coconut oil and blue magic coconut oil hair conditioner. I do 5 dutch braids (aka 5 big cornrows). I hate separating curls, so this size of braids works out perfect for me.
Step 3: Air dry as long as possible! The longer you leave them in the more defined the curls will be. I personally don’t like doing this before bed cause when I’m tired I’m way too lazy, but it helps to do it before bed. I only do this look when I have almost all day before I need to go anywhere. If you need to, then you can sit under a dryer or use a blow drying bonnet attachment (I got mine off of amazon for like 10$). Use the cool setting on your dryer so you don’t use heat on your hair.
Step 4: remove the braids carefully. I put a little bit of coconut oil on my hands when undoing the braids cause it decreases the amount of frizz.
And then use hairspray if you want that extra protection.
WTF!?! Crisco has a certified “USDA Organic” and certified “Non-GMO Project” Pure Coconut Oil?
Is the world coming to an end? Is hell freezing over? Is the voice of the people actually being heard by “big-food”? My mind can’t comprehend that a company that supports bans on GMO labeling is now carrying such a product.
Funny thing is that you can’t see the “Non-GMO Project Label” anywhere on the product. It’s only in small text on the back but it can be verified here: http://www.nongmoproject.org/find-non-gmo/search-participating-products/search-by-name/
It’s my full body moisturizer, and my skin has never been this soft! Not to mention, I had a little bit of cellulite on the back of my thighs, and since I started moisturizing with coconut oil, it’s all gone! Gotta love that!
Also, I use a coconut oil and sugar cleanser for my face, and I haven’t gotten a single pimple since I started using it!
The cleanser also doubles as a shaving cream which is awesome.
Seriously, if you’re not using this stuff, YOU SHOULD BE.
I want to start off by saying right off the bat that I received this
product free to review. Opinions are 100% my own. As you all should
know by now, I’m far from shy about voicing my honest opinions - even
receive a product for free.
One of the annoying things about the
medical conditions that I have is the fact that I gained a lot of weight
in a pretty short time. This left me with a lot of stretch marks and
I have said many times in the past, I have super sensitive skin, so I
am very picky about what products I use. I was happy to try this serum
as it is paraben-free and contains some fantastic organic ingredients
such as aloe and pure coconut oil.
a few weeks of using this product, I’m happy to report that I
like it very much. I mostly use it on my thighs. This cream is light and
doesn’t feel oily or sticky; it absorbs well and smells great. It
definitely makes my skin feel tighter and hasn’t caused any irritation.

I’ve had my locs 💁🏽 now for over 2 ½ years and I love ♥️how now I can style ☺️ my hair in many ways 😍. I’m frequently asked how and what products I use ☺️. This is Pt. 1 of this style which can also be styled many different ways. With washing I use different shampoos depending on the wash but this one I used Dr. Bronner Tea Tree Pure-Castile Soap and Suave Professionals Naturals Shea Butter n Almond Conditioner. For the style I used Shea Moisture Black Castor Oil Leave-in, Carols Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey, 100% pure coconut oil, black castor oil w/ coconut and Amla oil. I know it may seem a lot but I do color my hair often and I love my blonde so I heavily moisturize my hair in the summer and I love the shinny healthy locs look. Finalizing the look I used Design Essentials styling gel for my perimeter. Just two simple cornrows going back and pinned. Hope this info is helpful to my Loc and Natural Queens 💋 #Jayda #Part1 #yesterdayslookoftheday #licensestylist #nycstylist #naturalhair #etn #blackblondandnatural #hair2mesmerize #naturalhairdoescare #naturalbeauty #naturalhaircommunity #nhdaily #teamnatural_ #locstylesforwomen #locstyles #locstylesformen #loclovers #locstyle #naturalbeauty #hippiechicz #hippiekinks #hippiechicz #hippiekinks #hippiechicz #hippiekinks #hippiechicz #hippiekinks
