Bamboo for skin care?

Bamboo plants are known to be the tallest grass. In fact, other varieties can reach up to 151 feet (46 meters). They self-propagate, and this is the reason why they are one of the fast growing plants in the planet. They are also a great help to soil quality, and are eco-sustainable.

These plants widely grow in Asia but are now cultivated everywhere, except of course in polar areas, because of their popular benefits – health and beauty advantages. Usually, they are nurtured as source for building materials, clothing fibers, and crafted into a beautiful furniture, or home decor.

Many also include bamboo plants in their garden to simply add beauty and a sense balance. Others love to have bamboo at home because it symbolizes longevity, tenacity, strength, and flexibility.

You might have not thought that bamboo could be a beneficial skincare ingredient. But today, bamboo plants are gradually making their way into the beauty industry. Read more

Natural Beauty: The greatest DIY body/face scrub ever invented in history

Over my years as a model I amassed a rather large collection of two things.

Cosmetics and bobby pins.

At one point I was giving away $50 bottles of a supposedly exotic hair oil (it turned my hair yellow). Being someone who is naturally inclined I have been making my own beauty products for a number of years – vis-a-vis Flora perfumes. The bobby pins however, still linger with me and are usually found hiding in draws or handbags resisting their final resting place – the rubbish bin.

Below is a recipe for the most simple face scrub you could have. And one of the most inexpensive. Only 3 ingredients. It is oil based so if you’re like me and have skin that can get dryer than the Sahara desert – then this one’s for you.

Enjoy. Read more
