There’s this one scene in My Big Fat Greek Wedding that pretty much sums up my feelings on coconut oil. In case you haven’t seen it, Gus Portokalos, one of the film’s main characters uses Windex for everything from psoriasis to poison ivy. That folks, in a nutshell, is how I feel about coconut oil. Just ask anyone I know, and they’ll tell you how much I swear by this stuff. Especially since I use it (we’re talking 4 huge jarfuls!) in a multitude of ways most people simply wouldn’t understand. And although I’ve tried my fair share of coconut oils, I’m really loving the NEW! Vita Coco Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and its organic and non-greasy formula that has me totally addicted!

What Is Oil Pulling? Is It Healthy? How Does It Benefit/Treat Your Skin And Teeth?

Some may think that using oil is bad for your skin. But, in the wintertime, using essential oils can help balance your skin and restore lost moisture. With that said, if you have been avoiding oils, hopefully, I’ll change your mind. Dying to know exactly how I use this pure and natural bad-boy? Check out these 5 sensational ways I’m incorporating coconut oil into my beauty routine.

DIY Scrub

As the temperature drop, the harsh and cold air can leave your vulnerable skin chapped and extra dry. That’s why it’s important to add exfoliation to your beauty routine. To shed away dead skin cells and keep your skin glowing, making a DIY scrub is always a handy skin remedy. To make a natural and non-toxic scrub, I love using Raw Turbinado Sugar and coconut oil for that skin-renewing scrub promoting cellular turnover without clogging pores. Simply mix 2 tablespoons of coconut oil with 1 tablespoon raw sugar, and use 2-3 times a week for supple, radiant skin.

Shaving Cream

Coconut oil also makes for a great shaving cream or hair conditioner, as it contains good fats that condition skin and hair time and time again. To make your own leave-in conditioner, treat your fried ends to a mixture of water and coconut oil for smooth and hydrated locks, or, use as a deep conditioning treatment once a week.

Double-Cleanse Makeup Remover

One of my all-time favorite ways to use coconut oil though is as a makeup remover, thanks to its thick, buttery consistency. A must for those seeking organic beauty alternatives, this pure product doesn’t expose skin to harmful chemicals or ingredients. For best results, simply take a quarter-size amount of oil, rub into hands and apply onto a damp face. Follow with your favorite cleanser and warm water, and watch stubborn mascara, liner and shadow fade away.

Oil Pulling

Another popular way to use this super ingredient is for oil pulling, which has you swirling a tablespoon or two of oil in your mouth to ward away everything from gingivitis to bad breath. Although I’m still new to this trend, it doesn’t hurt hurt to give your pearly whites a little added defense, especially since this ancient practice is known for its dental benefits.

Body Moisturizer/Lip Balm

But if you’re looking for a fast and easy way to use it, just grab a scoop and use as either a body moisturizer or lip balm; its deeply hydrating formula banishes away flaky dry skin. Plus, I just love the shiny sheen it gives your hands after application. Don’t you?

Benzac Acne Line Review, B/A Photos, Ingredients: NEW! Benzac Acne Solutions Sincare Line Uses East Indian Sandalwood Oil To Soothe, Reduce Redness, Antibacterial Properties

A new acne skincare line is coming, beauties! Galderma, the maker of Cetaphil and the #1 prescription topical acne brand, helped develop Benzac as an over-the-counter regimen with proven, acne fighting ingredients, launching at the end of the year (12/29/14).

Treat Your Pimple/Zit Regimen Like A Cocktail! Mix! Stir! Repeat! 11 Best Acne Cleansers, Toners, Serums, Masks For Breakout-Prone Skin

Benzac will be the only acne treatment that contains pure, pharmaceutical-grade East Indian sandaldwood oil, which is clinically proven to improve acne within 2 weeks and minimize irritation. Benzac is dermatologist tested, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and free from artificial fragrances and dyes.

Containing antioxidants and moisturizing fatty acids, the key ingredient, East Indian sandalwood oil, has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and soothes the skin. It’s been used for thousands of years in Eastern medicine, but is relatively unknown in the beauty space. The 3-step skincare regimen includes:

Benzac Skin Balancing Foaming Cleanser is proven to gently exfoliate the skin, remove excess oil and soothe breakouts without over-drying the skin.

Benzac Intensive Spot Treatment rapidly neutralizes painful pimples and calms inflamed, blemished skin.

Benzac Blemish Clearing Hydrator controls excess oil and hydrates the skin while preventing blocked pores.

East Indian sandalwood oil has been used for thousands of years in traditional Indian and Chinese medicine for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Recently, researchers have gained a deeper understanding of the oil’s effectiveness in a number of dermatologic conditions. In addition to medicinal use, East Indian sandalwood oil has deep cultural significance in Asia. Every day, over 500 million sandalwood incense sticks are burned during religious ceremonies in India, where the wood is considered sacred and highly valued for its fragrance.

Poaching and over-harvesting have decimated the number of East Indian sandalwood trees growing in India’s wild. However, the tree is making a comeback through sustainable cultivation in the world’s largest East Indian sandalwood plantation, located in Northern Australia. The East Indian sandalwood in the Benzac regimen is exclusively sourced from this plantation, where the trees are continuously replanted to preserve and increase the population.

Downy Clothes on 2014 Beauty News Review: How To Keep Clothes As Soft As Your Skin, Downy Debuts Rip Your Clothes On Campaign

Have you seen the latest Downy commercial? Thankfully it’s so cold outside, because this commercial is steamy! Downy proves that ripping your cloths ON is sexier, allowing you and you loved one to snuggle up and enjoy the cushion-y softness of your winter clothes.

7 Best Spa, Body Care Products To Upgrade Your Fall/Winter Skincare Routine! Serum, Sea Salt Scrub, Lotion, Oil, Moisturizer

Downy debuted their new commercial, appropriately titled Rip Your Clothes On, during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last week. Watch it below if you haven’t seen it yet:

According to a recent Downy/Harris poll, nearly HALF of men said it would be sexier if their significant other dressed in clothing that was less revealing to leave something to the imagination. Over a third of men went a step further to say that jeans and a sweater could be just as sexy as lingerie on their significant other.

How To Use Downy – A Fun Instructional Video

While this spot may be sexier than you’d expect from Downy, it is based on a real human insight — soft, touchable fabrics play a role in your connection with others on an emotional and physical level.

Surprising Sexy Statistics

· Nearly half (47%) of men said it would be sexier if their significant other dressed in clothing that was less revealing to leave something to the imagination.

· 43% of men said that jeans and a sweater could be as sexy as lingerie on their significant other.

· A significant majority (88%) of men agreed that women who are comfortable in their clothing are more attractive than those who aren’t as comfortable in their clothing.

Softness Can Mean Closeness

· 83% of respondents agreed that they want to cuddle with their significant other when their clothing feels soft.

· 82% of respondents agreed that when their sheets are soft it makes them want to stay in bed longer with their significant other.

· A majority (70%) of respondents agreed that they find soft fabrics irresistible to touch (62% of men agreed; 78% of women agreed).

This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Poll on behalf of Downy from November 20-24, 2014 among 2,066 adults ages 18 and older. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.

I have been a redhead for most of my life. And as any redhead will tell you, it’s the hardest color to keep and change. The biggest complaint I and many other boxed redheads have is color-fading. Color looks fabulous for a week or two, then, POOF! It turns brassy and looks tarnished. Ted Gibson Salon to the rescue! Their color system from L’Oréal Professionel, INOA Carmilane, has changed the way I look at red hair color.

Stylist extraordinaire Jason Backe of the Ted Gibson Salon said that, “Maintaining the vibrancy of red has always been a top concern of my clients. With INOA Carmilane, I can take my clients to a garnet shade with longer-lasting results!”

Well, its hi-tech formulation features a unique, multidimensional molecule that anchors the colorant deep into the hair fiber and actually bonds with the hair. It ensures a pure, intense color with unmatched fade resistance technology. It’s also ammonia-free, so no icky fragrance. This is by far the best red I have ever been!

Here I am 2 weeks later; I get stopped on the street by complete strangers asking me where I get my hair done and what shade I wear.

Since my initial coloring, I have been prolonging the color with INOA Color Care Protective Cream Shampoo and Conditioner, formulated for all hair types with argan oil and green tea. But the key to my shine has been another product, the L’Oréal Professionnel Expert Serie  Cristalceutic Radiance-Protecting Treatment.

This extra step has color-protecting technology that physically traps and crystallizes color molecules deep within the hair fiber. The take-home weekly treatment will guarantee your color to be fade-free! If you love being a redhead, make sure you go to Ted Gibson Salon and get this VIP treatment your hair and color deserve! Trust me, you will be turning heads for weeks to come!
