Thinking about doing a skin cleanse? Well, good for you! I know the prospect can be daunting, though, so I thought I’d offer a few tips to make it easier.

Three Things That Might Be Causing Your Skin to Freak Out – And How to Help

We’ve all bemoaned good or bad hair days, but how about good or bad skin days? To me, there’s far more day-to-day variation in one’s skin than one’s hair, plus far less control. I mean, when I am having a bad hair day, the cause is clear (I haven’t brushed and/or washed my hair) and the answer is equally clear (I must wash, then brush, my hair). Yet when I am having a bad skin day, the answer and solution seem inexplicable. What went wrong? How can I fix it?

S.W. Recipe: Homemade Toothpaste

Many conventional toothpastes are loaded with questionable ingredients (artificial flavors, sweeteners, and colorants), come in wasteful packaging, and are produced using energy-sucking methods. This DIY all-natural toothpaste is not only more effective than its non-natural counterpart, it’s fun to make, great for the environment, and more affordable, too!

S.W. Recipe: Skin Cleanse Hair Conditioner

This recipe is straight from our founder Adina Grigore’s book Skin Cleanse. Pick up your own copy here!

DIY conditioners are usually full of oil, but it’s often very difficult to get oil out your hair. We prefer this recipe, which is still very conditioning but really light and easy to rinse out.

Beer is full of B vitamins, repairs damaged hair, and adds volume. The fatty acid content of eggs helps moisturize and condition your hair, and apple cider vinegar will help make your hair shiny and also clear you of scalp issues and buildup. The nice thing about this conditioner is that it’s good for your hair and your scalp. This recipe is especially great for fine hair.
