Chocolate Body Paint

14 Feb chocolate-face-mask

This is a unconvential body product but can be used to stir up romance in an adventurous manner, and let’s face it…it’s chocolate in flavour!!  You can change the taste by making it sweet or spicy …whatever your mood takes.   If I say it is low carb and Gluten Free, do you really care at this point??! x …I’m feeling frisky, tell me more Diva…

Honey Milk Oil Bath Soak

1 Feb honey

I love a bath and try to have one at least a week  (I shower every day in case you were thinking..eurghh!).  There is just something soothing about laying back in warm water and giving your skin a good soak.   If you find that your week is too busy with the joy that is life, put aside 30 minutes once a week to enjoy a soak in the tube.  Bring along books/magazines if needed too.   I do then shower everything off as the bath is draining and I feel absolutely squeaky clean!  Add a skin scrub to this event and you are clean, warm and shiny!

Softening Body Oil

15 Oct Almond-oil

This combines two of my favourite oils – almond and jojoba.  Both I think are fabulous for the skin.  Almond oil is my choice of under the eye oil for lines and shadows, jojoba is my night time moisturiser.

Before taking a shower, brush your skin gently.  Then apply this oil after a shower whilst your skin is still moist.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup almond oil

1/2 cup jojoba oil

2 tblspn apricot kernel oil

PREPARATION

  • Combine  the oils in a bottle and shake to mix.
  • Apply as needed.
  • Enjoy your soft skin!

Coconut Milk and Lemon Hair Straightening

10 Sep DSC07819

The wonders of coconut continue!  You can use coconut milk as a natural hair straightner.   It will leave your hair straight, smooth and healthy.   Although this can be a bit messy it is worth it for the silky shine it will give your hair.  Oooh, tell me more Diva..
