4 STEPS TO NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL SKIN

*Text and photos for this post are from the Human Nature Facebook page.  I can personally attest to the Elemi wash, Purifying Facial Scrub, Moisturizing Night Cream and the Sunflower Beauty Oil because I use all of those. Once I finish my current tube of BB cream, I’ll be switching over to the Day Fluid and get either the face powder or the foundation from the mineral make up line for coverage. Will also switch to the Balancing Toner once my big bottle from Forever Flawless is all used up. Let’s go natural and organic, let’s patronize Filipino products, Let’s go Human Nature!

Every day, our skin is assaulted by dirt, grime, pollutants, and toxins. This means that a daily skin care regimen is important to keep your skin clean, nourished, and glowing with health.
But first, it’s also important to know which products will suit your skin and bring out your natural glow. Not sure what your skin type is? Take our mini quiz to help you figure out your skin type so you can get the line that will bring out your skin’s beauty best!

1. CLEANSE: Purify your skin by removing dirt, oil, and excess make-up accumulated throughout the day. Alternate the Nourishing, Balancing or Hydrating Facial Wash with the Purifying Facial Scrub twice to thrice a week to gently exfoliate your skin and reveal smoother complexion.

2. TONE: Toning removes deep seated dirt that may have been left behind by the wash. Plus, it primes your skin for easy absorption of moisturizer. Use the appropriate toner for your skin type: Nourishing, Balancing, or Hydrating.

3. MOISTURIZE: Moisturize your face with 100% Natural Moisturizing Day Fluid before applying make-up. This helps your make-up last longer and blend well with your skin. Before going to bed, apply 100% Natural Moisturizing Night Cream to help the skin increase its ability to regenerate newer cells and replenish moisture.

4. MIRACLE CARE: Apply a few drops of our 100% Natural Sunflower Beauty Oil to areas that need special care and attention, such as under eyes, uneven skin tone or pigmented spots.

Human Nature–Top to Toe Treats

Human Nature is offering a huge price reduction on some of its products, while stocks last:

I am personally using the Balancing Facial Wash and love it. The Hydrating Facial Wash is specially formulated for dry or mature skin. The combination of moringa and aloe vera gives your skin a nutrient boost, at the same time soothes, heals and moisturizes.

I have a small bottle of the Juicy Burst Sanitizer in my bag at all times. I prefer it over the usual gel sanitizers. It smells clean and is multi-purpose too. I even use it to spritz the seat on public toilets, or to just give the room a clean smell. Although I still have a lot of juice in my spritzer, I went ahead and bought the 200mL bottle so I will always have refill available in case I run out. That’s how much I love it!

Now, get a Mega Moisture Blowout from head to toe by taking advantage of the great deals on the Hair Masks, and the Hydrating Lotion.  The hair mask has organic virgin coconut oil and with regular use, is a good substitute to getting hot oil or rebonding treatments. The Hydrating Lotion uses passion fruit seed oil, sunflower seed oil, and avocado oil.

You may order online via the Human Nature website, or you may get in touch with me directly for your orders.

Doing the JujuCleanse

So long after first hearing about Jujucleanse, we are finally doing the Juju!

I’m on my 3rd bottle now, the Red Giant. I was hungry just in time for this one, but I took in a wee bit of bread. Earlier, it wasn’t so much as being hungry, but wanting to put something in my mouth. So like I said, this is my 3rd bottle for the day, and there are three more to complete the Level 1 (1-day) cleanse.

How am I doing so far?

The Green Bomb (1) tasted a lot like celery stalks, but it wasn’t so difficult to drink it up. The Spicy Limonada (2) was a little harder for me to finish. It was a tad too spicy for my tastes. It has cayenne pepper as an ingredient.

This third one, has beets, pineapple, carrots and ginger. I had expected it to be sweet, but the ginger triumphs over the other tastes. Finish it I will.

It’s recommended to drink lots of water too, and I need no more encouragement than the punishing heat. I am definitely drinking a lot of liquids today.

I am really hoping this cleanse boosts my metabolism, and jumpstarts my body to a healthier journey. Of course it matters what I put into it after cleansing.

Mom and I took advantage of the 10% discount offered by JujuCleanse. Promo ended the other day. It was easy to order, the fastest way is by texting them at 09175763012.

Bike

So the latest ‘in’ thing to do is biking. Bike-riding for fitness, and for fun. My brother got himself a new bike:

It’s a second-hand bike he got for about 7000 pesos. He intends this to be Diane’s bike, as soon as he finds another one for himself. Alfred and I are looking to get bikes too.

Kuya’s friends go on bike trips already and someday maybe we can join them. For starters, we’ll bike around the area or around UP. Oh scratch that, for starters, we need to get bikes. Smile It’s been decades since I was last on a bike, but I rode my bike everyday when I was a kid.

If I ever do get into serious biking, I wonder if I’d want those biker suits too? You know how I’d always go in the Nike store because I love their fitness wear for women, and how I admire looking at yoga apparel because they look so comfy for when your exercising. Would I feel the same about getting those figure hugging outfits that bikers use? Maybe not. Haha.

Maybe our friend Ruth is right (she’s gone biking with her husband too), I should make the investment for health. But these bikes are just so darn expensive. We saw bikes on sale at Greenhills last week but I don’t know if that will do. Maybe I’ll borrow this bike first and try it out.

30 Day Challenge: Begin & End Your Day feeling Balanced

The 30-day challenge over at Crystal Wilkerson’s blog starts today, February15th. If I were normal, or if I decided to commit to this last week, I should have started this morning (or last night, as my day really starts at nighttime). But since work schedule is in EST anyway, I’ll be taking the challenge on an EST calendar as well Smile

What is it you ask?

 

 

Why is this important to me?

This challenge is important to me because I need it badly. I have never been known to be punctual. I show up. But most times, I’m late. Sometimes I am early or on time, but it isn’t most times. And that’s not something I am proud of. I’ve actually come to accept that about me, but it isn’t a good trait so I want to change. And I need help to change, this might be it. When I die, I don’t want ‘the late…’ to be the biggest joke of all.

I know that the challenge isn’t about being punctual, but a good reason why I’m late for most things is because I don’t heed my own wake up call all the time. I’m in a love affair with the snooze button. An abusive love affair. So though the challenge may not make me punctual for every appointment I make, it will at least help set the tone for my day, and that’s good enough for me.

Also, one of my resolutions (trying to do a happiness project too, hehe) is ‘to have a bedtime’ and to ‘wake up early.’ Two resolutions. So this challenge will actually help me achieve at least three things: get to work on time, all the time, follow a bedtime schedule, and wake up early.

Why should I take the time?

Anything important is worth making time for. I will consider this an investment in time and effort, and the payoff will be big. Hopefully, I won’t even have to wait too long for the ROI. Smile

Why now and not later?

Now is good a time as any. Besides, my word for the year is Start.

Why will this help me?

This will help me in so many different levels, I can’t even begin to list them. But finding balance before my actual day starts is an exciting prospect. Most of the time, I am a zombie as I get ready to leave home, and while I drive to work. I get to my desk, I sit, and it takes me at least 15-20 minutes to warm up and get things in proper perspective. This challenge, for me, promises a new way to start the day. If successful, I can hit the ground running as soon as I arrive in the office.

Why should I not give up?

In some form or another, I have done a similar challenge and I stick to it for awhile but not see it through the end. I have had enough of that. I shouldn’t give up because life is too short. I will think of Papa, and take on this challenge as a tribute to him who always gets up early.

Are you in on the challenge?
