ELIMINATE BAD ODOUR: DOES YOUR BODY SMELL BAD?


    This is one topic I like to talk about. Personal hygiene is a big deal for me. Body odour is like a stigma. When you smell so bad, people would not want to be around you. It can be so embarrassing that your close friends are just not bold enough to tell you how bad you smell. 

There are several reasons why people smell bad. It could be excessive sweating, diet, lack of proper personal hygiene or genetics. If you fall in the last category and still have bad odour, then it's time to see a doctor. Most people may have no idea that their personal scent doesn't smell good.





HOW TO ELIMINATE ODOUR NATURALLY

Baking powder is one of the most useful kitchen items you may not know about in health, hair and skincare. This cheap item has 100s of uses that can be used for your skin. 

  Apart from its various health uses, it can also be used topically for the body. All you need to do to kill the bad odour, is scrub your skin daily with baking soda. Concentrate on your underarms and those hidden corners that is likely to develop odour. 

Repeat this daily until the body odour disappears. And also to prevent any odour you can use the baking soda at least 2/3 times a week.


 Using baking soda is easily the cheapest and simplest way to stop and prevent body odour. This method is ten times more effective than using soap because of it's anti bacterial and exfoliating qualities. It's a good exfoliating scrub that cleanse the skin. On a subsequent post, I will list some wonderful beauty and health uses for baking soda.

 Below are a few ways to use beer in your skin and hair routine: 

Beer Bubble Bath: Try a bath soak using a mixture of olive oil based soap and some cups of beer. Relax and soak for 10 minutes or more, then rinse off to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. I tried it a couple of times and my skin feels soft and supple. 

Beer/Strawberry Face Scrub: Make a strawberry paste, add a table spoon of sugar and two table spoon of beer. Rub the paste over all of your face and rinse after 10minutes. 

Beer Conditioner: Jojoba oil and beer can be use to condition hair. This natural, non-greasy conditione adds body and weight while jojoba oil adds shine. Add 2 tablespoon of beer to jojoba oil to give your hair a shiny sheen. Alternatively, you can substitute jojoba oil with coconut or olive oil.

8 COMMON HABITS THAT ARE CAUSING YOU BLACKHEADS

Photo credit: Instagram (Ari Lennox)

I'm so guilty of one or two of this habits. Some people are born with naturally spotless skin and they do not need to do much to keep it that way. F or some of us, we have to do extra to make our faces be in good form. If you are not aware of some these causes, you may keep trying to fix it doing the wrong thing instead of cutting out the various habits mentioned below.

Picking and pinching
 This is one major culprit. Am so guilty of it. The urge to pinch and press any little sign of pimple is really hard to stop. But pinching and picking causes more acne to spread and it leaves spots and blackheads on your face making the skin look rough, patchy and discoloured.

Avoid using strong alcoholic toners and cleansers
This will only cause more dryness to the skin, forcing the skin to over compensate by producing more oils which cause your skin to break out more.

Washing your face excessively
 Constantly washing your face will force the skin to dry up and produce excess sebum which in turn cause acne. Wash face with mild soap to remove impurities not more than two or three times a day.

Lack of exfoliation and moisturising
Dead skin cells need to be scrubbed of to make way for new cells and the underlying glowing skin. Dead cells clog pores causing more acne. Moisturising regularly to hydrate the skin and prevent it from drying.

Touching your face with dirty fingers would deposite bacteria on your skin which may lodge in your pores to cause break outs.

Dirty and sweaty pillowcase. Do not use one pillow case more than 3 days in a row. Ensure you change it. Sweat and dirtson pillow case can cause the skin on face to get acne.

Harsh creams. Avoid using harsh body creams for face. Use a face cream instead. The skin of the face is very delicate and would quickly reach to harsh chemicals.

Avoid direct sunlight. Exposing your face to the sun will age the skin fast causing the skin to dehydrate. A dehydrated skin is prone to acne breakouts.

CREATING MY 2021 VISION BOARD

 Happy New Year! 

New Year, new moves! I'm sure most of us have goals and visions we would like to accomplish for this new year. At the start of every new year, I list my goals on a paper. But this time, I'm not going to just put them on paper, but also i will also create a vision board in order to attach pictures to each and every goals that I will achieve. 

What is a vision board?

A vision board is a visual representation of all those things that you would like to see materialise within a specific period of time. Vision boards are very powerful. With it, you get to reflect about what exactly you want in your life. It helps to remind you and impose these thoughts constantly in your mind.

Vision boards work with the law of attraction; as you attract into your life what you see, visualise, think about and speak regularly. A vision board helps you to visualise the life you really want, as you can attach visuals that are similar to what your goals are.


Before starting  a vision board:

●The most important thing is to think about those things you want to bring into your life. It could be abstract or physical or just expressions/experience. 

●Afterwards, get a plain board. Get pictures of those things you to attract into your life, what you want. Then pin them onto the board. Starting with bigger pictures to smaller. E.g pictures of items you may want to buy, places you'd like to visit, words/phrases that represent expressions and experiences.

●Place the board strategically in your place.  Somewhere that is easily visible to see everyday.

Now you are ready to manifest your dreams into reality, as you work towards them daily; you regularly take a look at the board for continuous motivation. 

I made a vision board and you can see it here Vision board on my YouTube channel. 

Everyday when when I get off my bed in the morning, I go take a look at my vision board to remind me and put the thoughts into my subconscious. I also look at it randomly during the day. This helps to align my thoughts positively. 

If you haven't done one, it's not too late to make one. Take the step and start manifesting the beautiful life that you desire.

My friend ordered potato and chicken salad with Brownie Amor bowl with coconuts, brownie and walnuts and a blueberry smoothie. The menu items were tagged with interesting names that would peak your attention to try them out.




The food were very picturesque and colourful, especially insta worthy for pictures. I liked my super salmon bowl which had cucumber, chilli, mango, sesame seed, avocado and some other stuffs i can't remember.
