Best Essential Oils for Skincare

These three essential oils have all been tried and tested by me over and over again, and they suit my skin so well:

Ylang Ylang

This oil is really good for the skin. It regulates sebum production, can act as a skin cleanser thanks to its strong antibacterial properties, and also works great as a healing oil by boosting the regenerative process of the epidermis. I usually mix Ylang Ylang with other essential oils and carrier oils to create my unique mosturising blend, and it works amazingly well.

Lemon

Lemon Essential Oil is another great oil for the skin. I use it quite a lot, especially in the warmer months, and it works so well for my skin.  This essential oil can help reduce the appearance of acne, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. It works great as an exfoliator and facial cleanser.

Tea Tree

This essential oil is one of my favourites. I have used Tea Tree a lot over the years in many different ways and it is one essential oil I am very comfortable using. It is great for reducing redness and swelling on the skin. This oil has an anti-inflammatory effect that helps soothe and relieve irritated and painful skin. It also helps reduce the appearance of acne and soothes itchy skin.

I recommend any of these three essential oils for skincare. Like all other essential oils, Ylang Ylang, Lemon, and Tea Tree are very potent so please ensure you handle them with care and dilute them with a carrier oil before applying them to your skin.

Let me know in the comments section if you have tried any of these essential oils. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.

 

 

How to Improve the Aesthetic of Your Smile

*Collaborative post.

If you’re concerned that the aesthetics of your smile are maybe lacking, there’s plenty you can do to change that. When you stop paying attention to it and you let your dental health and hygiene routines slide, it can often cause problems. So if you’re looking to get things back on track and correct any of the problems and faults that have developed, here’s some information on how to do it.

Fix Your Gum Line

First of all, you’ll need to think about your gum line and how it might be best to fix it if there are issues there. A high gum line can be fixed and it’s a good idea to do so because gum disease and infections are less likely when you have a healthy gum line. You can discuss the treatment options open to you with your doctor if you’re not sure what the right approach to take is.

Enamel Contouring Can Help Balance Your Smile

Contouring is another option if you feel the appearance of your teeth has some inconsistency. Maybe teeth on one side are shaped differently from the other side. If you want to bring more balance to your smile, contouring is a relatively simple and straightforward option that many people are now making the most of. 

Consider Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is another very common cosmetic dental procedure, and it can make people feel a lot less self-conscious about their smiles. That might be just what you need when you’re looking to improve the cosmetic appeal of your smile. Maybe years of drinking coffee and red wine have resulted in some staining that you’re not happy with. Teeth whitening procedures can fix that for you.

Use Aligners While You Sleep

If you want to correct any kind of misalignment that might exist with your smile, it might be a good idea to deal with the problem by using aligners while you’re sleeping. These can be really helpful as they correct any issues overnight and you don’t have to deal with the performance that comes with other options such as braces. It’s proven that nighttime invisible aligners make a difference, so you might want to give them a try.

Cover Cracks with Veneers

Veneers are a good solution for anyone who’s looking to cover up any cracks or damage to their teeth. Veneers offer a layer of protection that can prevent further issues from developing, as well as improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile as well. It’s something you should discuss with your dentist. They’re very common now though, and they might be what you’re looking for.

As you can see, there are lots of things you can do to help improve the aesthetic of your smile, so make the most of the ideas that have been shared here today. Each of them will serve you well and help you to feel more confident about your smile and how it looks. And that should help you carry yourself with more confidence too.



How to grow your hair faster

For as long as I can remember, I have almost always desired to grow my hair faster. Over the years, I have read various articles and tried all types of hair products that promised to grow my hair fast. Many of them did not do much. I have come to realise that like many things, it is more about the practice than the products. In other words, it is how I care for my hair that grows my hair and not really the products I use. Since the light bulb moment, I have taken care of my hair in many different ways and I have discovered which methods work best for my hair. I also care for my daughter’s hair using the same methods.

How to grow your hair faster

Here are some of the methods that have worked perfectly for my hair over the years –

Tip 1 – Go natural

I started keeping my hair natural some years ago and it is the best thing I have ever done for my hair. Chemicals were doing dangerous things to my scalp and my hair was so weak. I didn’t go down the big chop route so it was a slow journey back to the roots but no regrets. I love how healthy and thick my hair is now.

Tip 2 – No heat or artificial products

I let my hair air-dry when I wash it. No dryers on my hair. If you must use a dryer, get one with a cold setting. Heat damages the hair. Also, I use only natural hair products. Nothing artificial touches my hair. I like to use essential oils and other carrier oils. They work great for my hair type. If you have a dry scalp like mine, it is very important you keep your scalp moisturised every day. I usually have my oils and water mixed up and ready to use in a spray bottle.

Tip 3 – Sleep with a silk bonnet

It is important you take care of your hair while you sleep. I always sleep with a silk scarf and bonnet every night. That way my hair stays protected all through the night and neat as well.

Tip 4 – Have on protective styles

It is very important for us to care for our hair by wearing more protective styles. I always have my hair in a braid or 2 at the minimum. It is easier to care for your hair when you have on a protective style as well.
