Hello and welcome to the new year! 2013 my resolution was to be more green and natural, but the problem is I have to be green on a budget! I know a lot of my readers find themselves wanting to be cleaner and more efficient in how they do things without having to sacrifice their wallet to do so! It's bad enough our talents get more expensive as time goes buy the last thing we want to worry about is the products we use. So I have searched the internet for things you can do to live more healthier and natural for cheap.
I love my skin and barely wear any make up, but I realize that just because you don't wear any make up doesn't mean your skin is healthy! I have plenty of friends with bad skin and don't know why! Here's the thing while my skin is clear my pores can get bad from time to time that is why I love Michelle Phan beauty tips! Using nothing but common refrigerated items you can clear your skin and pores in a matter of minutes. Look at all her beauty tips for more!
Tired of acid burning perms? DO you wanna go natural? Don't want to have to cut all your hair off? Then you are just like me! Yes it will take some time before ALL the chemicals are gone from your hair but it is manageable. I know plenty of black girls who spend too much money on getting there hair done at "Black Salons" because they want there hair straight...Well what if I told you there was a magical place where you could get you hair cut, styles, washed, and flattened for as low as 12 dollars! A place where they only use natural products! Well my friends this magical place is called AVEDA!I know what you are gonna say, "Whats's the Catch?" well my friend I will tell you! The reason why its so cheap is because they are using students! But the trick is to request a graduate student for perfection! I for one love AVEDA and I challenge anyone to beat there prices.
One more thing about keeping your hair wonderful while natural! MOISTURIZE! Any products that include olive oil will surely help grow and protect your hair!
You wanna eat more healthier and organic. I understand! Organic is way more healthier but unfortunately more expensive....If you don't know what to look for. Next time you find some organic shops, compare everything make sure you are getting the best for your buck. When you find out what shops the cheapest sign up for their rewards program! Get coupons! Check website for additional sales! Always be on top before you make your purchases, this same method can also be applied anywhere that sales organic food such as Walmart, Bloom, Public, Food Lion, Ect. Also if you just so happen to have relatives that are friends of farmers ask if they can send you some preserves or pounds of meat....lol works for me!Here is a store I go to some time!
Also be mindful how you pack your food! DO RESEARCH!
This is all for now but more to come and Remember to live one step at a time when it comes to being Healthy and Natural!
