We all love certain products for particular reasons. Sometimes they are just plain effective, and that is a great reason! We also love them for the memories and comfort they bring. Sometimes we are just product loyal! It’s ALL good! I love this product by Avon for all of the reasons I mentioned!
I loved when my grandmother, aunts and mother gathered around with the Avon lady and laughed while they tried Avon’s latest products. Don’t you love how women tend to bond over laughter and sharing! We are a powerful bunch!
This very gently scented soft cream is amazing just to freshen up or bring some great scented moisture to the skin! It’s never overbearing. You can wear it if you are sensitive to scents or if you don’t want something that keeps you awake at night.
It leaves a nice silky feel to the skin that will last all day. People always ask me what scent I am wearing and where I got it! The same cream comes in other scents as well. You can check them out and other Avon products on my Avon site at:
Like many women (and men too!) I am always looking for products that are natural and can help reduce signs of aging on my face, neck, and other areas of my body. Many women turn to Retin-A, which is a prescription medication for facial wrinkles and aging skin. The issue is that Retin-A can be very harsh on the skin and actually burns and causes it to peel. Many who use Retin-A have to use small amounts at a time in order to work up to the benefits and not cause a bad reaction.
Since I LOVE natural things I began to research what I can use for my face and neck that would not be as harsh on my skin. The idea is to improve skin, right? Then I learned about Cacay Oil and its natural ingredients that help aging skin. In fact out of all the oils that can be used such as sweet almond, rose oil, castor oil, or argon oil, Cacay has the highest amount of natural vitamin A, also called tretinoin. It is a retinoic acid that helps improve the signs of aging on skin. It also has high amounts of vitamin E which is great for fine lines and wrinkles.
One of the more fascinating affects of Cacay is its ability to improve the look of scars and stretch marks as well! It also gives a beautiful shiny and improved look to hair, hands, nails and will improve skin anywhere on the body. Cacay is now becoming the “go to” oil for improving aging skin. It is determined that improvement should be seen within 2-3 weeks. Every woman wants to improve the look of the skin on her neck. This oil is great for that as well!
I am going to give you a couple Amazon links. One is more higher priced and the other a bit lower. I would not go any lower than these because of the quality of the oil you are buying. The oil should last you SIX months just putting it on your face and neck. Only small amounts are used at a time but make sure you use it up within that time. Oils are not meant to be kept for long periods of time. Here are the two Amazon links!
I was never so happy to discover that coconut oil has so many benefits for our bodies! Please see my post on the benefits of coconut oil! The Benefits of Coconut Oil .
Now I have discovered that using coconut oil as a replacement to mouth wash is so good for us! All that is needed is to take a spoonful of oil in the morning after brushing your teeth and swish it around like mouthwash. Do NOT swallow it because it removes bacteria from the teeth, gums, and tongue. You don’t want this in your stomach! The point of it all is to eliminate a lot of the mouth bacteria that eventually ends up in the stomach.
Swish it gently for anywhere from 5-20 minutes. Then spit it out and rinse your mouth. Here are the benefits:
Cures bad breath
Keeps bacteria from entering into the stomach from the mouth
Helps avoid skin eruptions due to lower bacteria being ingested.
Gives a bright shiny beautiful smile
Keeps gums safe from gum disease
Will help major skin problems such as rosacea, psoriasis, and facial breakouts!
Will bring more energy and health over time
Good for heart health
I like to cook with coconut oil and I also take a tablespoon of it daily and swallow. It is good for digestion and bowel issues.
Here is to your health!
