HEALTH- & SELF-CARE

Facial care: create my own facial oil using organic oils such as argan, jojoba, coconut, olive, sunflower, sesame, linseed & other oils - whatever I find when I need it šŸ˜…. Argan, jojoba and coconut are especially known for their skin benefits but the others also add different nutrients. This is all I put on my skin. I don't use any other serums, moisturisers etc. My skin type is dry and it works wonderfully for me. For others it might be more of a night mask option; as I don't wear make-up usually I also don't have to worry about it sinking in before I apply anything else on top.

ON MY BODY...

Trying to avoid chemicals on my skin and at the same time being budget-friendly, here are some easy self-care tips I like to use:

Deodorant: conventional deodorants are known for containing ingredients that can be harmful to us; in addition, the packaging often produces a lot of waste. Its incredible how easy and simple it is to make a truly functioning deodorant yourself.

Option 1: baking soda, either apply as a powder or mix with coconut oil for a paste

Option 2: citrus juice - lemon juice from a bottle or cut up lemon/lime and rub it under your armpits. It's surprising how well this works for all-day "protection"!

Oral care: I like to oil pull. Usually I use coconut oil for it, but again you can use a range of oils. Google to learn about the multiple benefits of this ayurvedic practice.

For teeth-whitening I actually occasionally apply activated charcoal to my teeth overnight. It works but looks strange - do it when you're alone. :)

When I do these two things my gums are super healthy...

I'd love to learn more about how I can make my health- and self-care more natural, budget-friendly or simple. If you have any tips, advice, habits and routines, would love to hear about them. :)

IN MY BODY...

I like to eat vegan, avoid gluten and soy, prefer organic, like high-protein meals and low (industrially) processed foods... Check out some easy, creative and nourishing recipes below. :)
