This Beauty balm is an absolute skin saviour and will make your skin feel so nourished and cleansed. I love the feel of it and the application is a lovely bit of pampering for a tired face. This DIY balm is infused with essential oils and Shea butter to help retain moisture and leave it soft and supple with a healthy glow. It really is a fantastic all-rounder and everyone should have this in their bathroom cupboard. It can be used to exfoliate, cleanse, moisturise, fix cuticles and tame brows. Moroccan Argan oil has wonderful benefits for your skin hair and nails and Rosehip oil improves skin tone and detoxes the skin. It is full of anti-oxidants and when all of these are put together they work as a superb skin reviver. This recipe is from the Beauty Book by NYRO.

Did you know that every third mouthful of food we eat has been pollinated by bees? They are truly remarkable creatures and without them, the human race would be extinct! They are responsible for pollinating around 85 percent of the worlds food crops. Another fantastic thing about them is that they produce honey, wax and propolis. They have many uses and one of the main uses is for skincare. Humans have been using honey to heal the skin for thousands of years. Honey, wax and propolis have been used for their antiseptic and moisturising properties. They are a well known beauty staple and a great skin conditioner. Honey can be used to heal wounds and treat various skin conditions.
If you read my recent blog post on self-care, then you may have noticed that one of the suggestions is to bake some nice yummy treats for yourself! Yipee, that means it is guilt-free, cos i said so haha! Anyone asks, you can tell them i told you that in order to look after yourself, you need to bake yummy treats for yourself on a regular basis. Why? Because it makes you happy of course! Too many people are afraid to treat themselves due to boring and strict diets or healthy lifestyle choices, basically. Thats why I’m here to give you a little push in the direction of deliciously sweet and mouth-watering biscuits. I happened to make these a few years ago back in New Zealand and they were completely amazing. I actually meant to bake them for a market, they are THAT good. I was thinking to myself, i could probably just bake these cookies by the dozen and sell them to make some cash because they’re completely addictive and people would keep coming back for more heehee. Who knows, i may still rock on with that idea but for the time being I’m a full time Mum with no babysitter – so that may be a while away.
Today i decided to do a post on my top ten natural beauty products that I’m using at the moment. I really love my natural beauty products and i just had to share my current natural beauty faves with you. I have never done a post of this kind before so i will go through my beauty routine and add some of my little luxuries that i use a couple of times a week, at the end. I’ll start off with my everyday routine. It is a very quick routine since I’m lucky to have a spare few minutes to be honest! I do a lot of running around after my two babies in the mornings so i need a quick and easy to manage skincare once-over. I also adore nourishing my face and i really relish the effect of my products and the feel-good factor involved with properly cleansing and prepping my face for the day. Its my little bit of pampering that wakes me up and makes me feel great. I tend to have my shower first, which takes me a maximum of five minutes and then follow with face care as the pores are open from the heat. Thats if i have time! Otherwise i just do my facial routine whenever i get a chance. So i will start with my fave shower product for body care.
