What's On My Bathroom Countertop? (Natural Skin Care)
Guys, I nearly made a kitchen out of my bathroom countertop!
You already know how I'm all into the organic beauty skin care and I try my best to avoid everything chemical and toxic.
Check out my natural skin and mind care rituals here.
I also try to follow the rule: "if you can't eat it, don't put it on your skin."
So here's what I have on my bathroom countertop that help me feed my skin in the best way possible:
I filled this bottle during our last trip to the beach and I've been using it since then.
Sea water is a great acne treatment, it heals cuts and sore muscles, it's great for oily hair and for those beach waves and I just heard that it's also a great mouthwash.
(read more about its benefits here)
I pour some on cotton pads and massage my face with it AFTER I cleanse my face with a cleanser.
I leave it on for a couple of minutes and then wash it off.
I'm still investigating on whether or not Yves Rocher is an all-natural brand, but I got this cleanser the other day and I pretty much like it. It does its job of cleansing perfectly, plus it's gentle and soft on the skin.
I use it every other night when I don't use the Body Shop's 3 in 1.
3 IN 1 WASH.SCRUB.MASK.
YES this is the third time i talk about this product because I freaking love it.
Tea tree and my skin are a match made in heaven and I've noticed a tremendous improvement in my skin since I started using this so... GO GET IT!!
Apple Cider Vinegar.
This regulates your skin pH and therefore removes all excess of oil and toxins.
Dilute it with some water and clean my face with it with the help of a cotton pad. Leave it on for 3 minutes then wash off.
I think I've already talked about this cream in my natural skin care ritual post, but I'm telling you about it again because it's my favourite moisturizer and I've used a few.
It's brightening, hydrating and not greasy at aaaall, it just gets into your skin and works magic without your face feeling shiny and greesy.
I've already talked about this mask as well and it just stands as another proof that tea tree is perfect for my skin.
No chemichals, soft on the skin, organic soaps are a great face and body cleansers to avoid the dryness and itchiness caused by chemichal soaps.
Plus its full of vitamins and minerals and is a great hydrating product.

I got this Lemon and Vervein ones from l'Occitent which I'm so in love with
A life savor in these upcoming cold months for the lips. I put some on my lips every night which prevents them from drying out and looking disastrous.
(and I also use it on my eyelashes...they said that it makes them taller...idk, I'll let you know about that)
I currently only have Jasmin and Chamomille oils and I just run out of coconut oil.
I use them for my hair (softeness and brightness guaranteed)
I use them to cleanse my face as well
And for my entire body for a deep hydrating massage.
(Jasmin oil has SUCH a great smell that's why it's a great anti-depression and anxiety oil)
To be honest I still don't know what to use this for.
I've only used it with headaches, I put some drops on my forehead and massaged it.
So any DIY suggestions will be welcome.
I use lemons for A LOT of things:
- drink it in the morning with some water.
- put some slices in my cup of tea
- preapare a whitening paste for my teeth with some baking soda.
I use baking soda for my teeth but mostly by mixing i with oil or honey for an on-the-go exfoliator.
And it has a looot of other benefits on the health inside out.
For tired eyes, dampen a cotton pad with rose water and put it on your eyes with the lights off.
I'm getting addicted to doing that while listening to Krista Tippet's podcast On Being that a friend kindly recommended and I'm in love with it.
That's a wrap! So tell me what can I add to my countertop and what other uses can I use all these ingredients for?
I WANNA HEAR ALL YOUR SUGGESTIONS.
