Evolving Beauty Routine

Well, I am finding that simple is best as far as my beauty routine goes.  I am using inexpensive products such as hydrogen peroxide, apple cider vinegar and baking soda.  Then other products that are natural based, such as emu oil, Gold Bond baby powder, castile soap, epsom salts and neem.

I am finding out that healthy is the best "pretty" and is God's gift to us.  I have not been wearing much make-up, just letting the natural me be "me" and enjoying it.

I have been battling periodontal disease for sometime. I found out that the supplement Ubiquinol plus Quercetin & Vitamin C help.  So I have been taking those supplements and have noticed an improvement.  Trying to keep up with the Biotin for my hair & nails.  Also, try to remember to brush twice a day & floss every night.  I have been using baking soda to brush my teeth and doing a rinse with hydrogen peroxide.  I also use Theraneem tooth & gum powder along the Theraneem mouthwash.  Been using the apple cider vinegar as a toner and continuing to use the emu oil as my moisturizer.  Also the castile soap is moisturizing as it does not strip the skin of its natural oils. Epsom salts are used in the bath to relax and detox.  And, for deodorant I have been using hydrogen peroxide to cleanse my underarm and then use the Gold Bond baby powder.  I have been experiencing less irritation since.

So that is my current beauty routine update.  Very simple, but effective.  It keeps me going.
