DIY . All Natural Remineralizing Toothpaste

I am always up for a challenge when it comes to making my own remedies, beauty products, and cleaning supplies. So I was beyond excited to continue my journey towards a healthier lifestyle by eliminating my exposure to harmful ingredients found in a regular toothpaste. What is wrong with my toothpaste? To begin with, Fluoride is the main ingredient in toothpaste … and rat poison. It is categorized as a “toxic drug” by the FDA. Fluoride can cause side effects like damage to the brain, decreased IQ in children, damage to the pineal gland, thyroid gland, bones, gastrointestinal tract, and cancers. Since it […]

Oil Cleansing

Not too long ago the thought of slathering oil all over my face made me cringe. It was one of the most difficult steps I took towards a healthier lifestyle. Let me put it this way: Imagine I was nominated for the (fictitious) “What Not to Wear On Your Face” show. Stacey and Clinton would gasp in horror watching the secret footage of me using a store bought, chemical filled, face wash . I would be put in front of a 360 degree mirror to be shown how my regular face wash was stripping my oils and damaging my skin. After some […]

DIY . Cucumber Exfoliating Facial Cleanser

Hello, everyone! We started our exfoliating cleanser journey with a common ingredient in the beauty department: the tomato. And today, as we finish with the different recipes, I have another salad addition for your face: the cucumber. Cucumber is not that odd because we have all seen or experimented placing a couple of slices over our eyes. It is so refreshing, and this facial cleanser is no different! Cucumbers contain silica and caffein acid which reduce swelling (aka puffiness). They are known for brightening, soothing and cooling the skin. Both cucumber and hemp seed oil are anti-inflammatory. Which is why they work […]

I’d read thoroughly every label being convinced of the reasons why I needed a new one. When I had finally decided on THE ONE, I would look at the one beside it and think: “But that one is so cute” or “But this one says I’m gonna see results in 20 days as opposed to the one I have at home that says 21 days”. For all of you How […]

DIY All Purpose Cleaner | Te Amo Too

Commercial cleaning products are some of the most toxic products we can find in our homes. Some of us can tell by the way our bodies responds to it, through a skin or respiratory irritation, watery eyes, chemical burns, and sudden headaches. But unfortunately, not everyone has an immediate reaction. Some people may never know how bad it is being exposed to these chemicals until they develop chronic, or long term, side effects later in life. You can only imagine how bad it would be to ingest any of the regular store bought cleaning products, as it happens so many times, specially with […]
