Dewy Skin

Author: Dr. Larita

Your skin is a living breathing organ and to keep it looking fresh and dewy, you must keep it hydrated along with the rest of your body. To improve the condition of your skin and delay or even reverse the aging process, do the following:

  1. drink plenty of water
  2. eat a diet rich in antioxidants
  3. wash your face with a gentle natural soap
  4. use a good moisturizing cream

Be gentle when you wash your face and don’t scrub too hard because scrubbing is not good for your skin. I splash lukewarm water on my face and then make a soapy lather in my hands but you can also use a soft cloth to wash your face. After rinsing well, I use an astringent like witch hazel on a cotton ball before moisturizing with 30 second face lift.

Eliminating Dry Skin II

handwashingNothing removes moisture from your skin quicker than cleansing. Whether it’s your hand soap, body soap or facial cleansers, the ingredients in your skin care cleansing products could be leaching the moisture from your skin. It’s very important that you steer clear of harsh detergents if you have dry skin. Use a gentle moisturizing soap to prevent and treat dry skin.

Constant hand washing will dry your hands quickly. Some people, like doctors, nurses and teachers must wash their hands continuously to guard against the germs in their working environment. To ease the effects of continuous hand washing, use lukewarm water, natural soap and a good skin moisturizer.


The coronavirus pandemic is here. If you are not affected yet, you probably will be in some way or another before it’s all over. One of the ways for you to stay safe from this virus is to wash your hands frequently and if you can’t do that, use hand sanitizer. If you’re looking for hand sanitizer in the stores, you won’t find any right now. I have no cure (and neither does anyone else as of yet.) I do have a way to help you stay safe by making your own hand sanitizer.

Please carry this aromatherapy hand cleanser with you to stay safe from germs naturally without alcohol. You can make this essential oil hand cleanser and keep it in your pocket or purse for anytime you need to clean your hands. It’s also good to have a supply on hand while you’re cooking for your family. You don’t want to pass germs to your family.

Natural Coronavirus Hand Cleanser

  • 1 oz (28 g) aloe vera gel 
  • 8 drops oregano
  • 5 drops tea tree 
  • 5 drops lavender

Make your blend in a 1 oz (30 ml) flip-top bottle. (Sometimes this is called a “disc-top.”) Combine all of your ingredients in the bottle, and you’re done. Be sure to shake it before you use it


Do you suffer from dry or oily skin, frequent breakouts, and serious acne problems? Then it’s about time you take regular cleansing seriously. Facial cleansers are essential to keep you looking healthy, young, and radiant. There are many cleansing brands to choose from and you need to figure out which one works best for your skin.

Choosing the right facial cleansers starts by knowing your skin type. Avoid cleansing products that contain high alcohol levels if you have dry skin. For oily skin, buy facial cleansers that have a lower PH level. For sensitive skin, a basic cleanser without additives and synthetic ingredients is best for you. If you put on a lot of makeup, cleanse with a product that’s made to thoroughly remove it. Delivery of the cleansing product matters as well – and so, cream-based cleansers for dry skin, foamy or gel cleansers for oily skin.

You can always consult a dermatologist if you want to be extra sure with the facial cleansers you ought to be using and the right cleansing regimen for your skin type. Ultimately, a good match for any skin type is a cleansing product that can maintain you skin’s natural balance, can effectively remove dirt and clogged pores, and keep your skin clear, hydrated, and healthy.

You can have healthy teeth and gums without using commercial toothpaste that may contain harmful chemicals and preservatives. Many primitive societies had pearly white teeth and healthy gums without using toothpaste. They used certain sticks and rock salt to make a very effective dental cleanser. Essential oils can provide a natural alternative to commercial toothpastes, of course, it also helps if you steer clear of sweets!

You can make an effective tooth powder with the following ingredients:

  • 4 teaspoons green or white clay
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 2 drops lemon essential oil

Mix the above ingredients well in a blender and store in a box. Dip your toothbrush into the powder and wet it with a tiny amount of water, then brush as usual.

Myrrh essential oil can be used to treat mouth problems and also to keep your gums healthy. Make a myrrh mouthwash  by adding 2 drops of myrrh essential to 1 tablespoon of vodka and mix well. Add only 2 drops of this to each glass of water you use to rinse the mouth.

Here is another tooth powder formula that also helps keep your teeth white:

  • 1 tablespoon ground, dried orange peel
  • 2 teaspoons ground, dried sage
  • 2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 drops lemon essential oil
  • 1 drop peppermint essential oil

If you have gum problems, you can add 15 drops of tincture of myrrh (purchase at your drug store) into which you have added 1 drop of myrrh essential oil to your tooth powder recipe. Mix this well in a blender and store in a box. Use it the same way as the tooth powder recipe above and here’s to a naturally bright smile!

Essential oils can be used in the living room to freshen carpets, curtains, and furniture. Make a carpet freshener powder by mixing 1 drop of peppermint, or grapefruit essential oil per tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda or borax powder. Add the essential oil to the powder and mix it well in a blender. Allow the mixture to sit overnight before using it the first time. You can make as much as you want to have on hand and store it in a zip lock bag or a sealed jar. To use the carpet freshener, sprinkle it on your carpet, leave it there for a few minutes, then vacuum. You can also add the powder directly to your vacuum bag to stop odor; add 8 drops of essential oil to a cotton ball and put it inside the bag each time you change it; or simply add 8 drops of essential oil directly onto the bag.

To get rid of streaks on freshly cleaned windows, bunch up a sheet of newspaper, put a drop of lemon, lime or grapefruit essential oil on it and polish the glass with this combination. The essential oil soaks into the newspaper and combined with the newsprint it removes streaks and creates a sparkling finish. You get an added bonus when the sun hits the glass and warms the essential oil releasing a subtle fragrance into the living room.

Make your own furniture polish and banish chemicals and synthetic fragrances from your home with this recipe: melt 8 ounces of plain unrefined beeswax in a double boiler, add 2 1/2 cups of room temperature turpentine and put it aside. Boil 2 1/2 cups water and add 2 ounces of grated pure soap (purchase at the health food store) or grated castile soap and stir until melted, then sit it aside until it is cool but still warm. Slowly add the warm soap and water to the beeswax and turpentine a little at a time stirring constantly. Now add 10 drops of the essential oil of your choice and blend the entire mixture well. Store your furniture polish in a tin can or a small ice cream carton (a Ben and Jerry’s carton will work well and you get to eat the ice cream first.) You only need a small amount at a time to polish your furniture and you will be greatly rewarded for your work by the fragrance of the essential oil and the shine of your furniture.

Lastly, you can use a plant mister spray filled with 2 1/2 cups of water and 8 drops of essential oil to freshen  furniture, curtains, and carpets. Since the living room is where you spend time with family and friends you will want to choose the right blend of essential oils. A calming synergistic blend includes 8 drops geranium, 3 drops clary-sage, 5 drops lemon, and 3 drops bergamot. A stimulating blend to use on a lazy afternoon includes 8 drops of grapefruit, 4 drops lavender, 4 drops lime and 2 drops of basil.

I like to take really good care of my skin and finding the right skin care products is something that is important to me. Finding some nice skin care ensures that I can have the beautiful glow that I want to have and that I can feel confident on a daily basis as well. There are some awesome skin care products out there.

With the right cleansers for my skin, I can make sure that I am confident and that I am ready to face whatever the day will throw my way. Finding some great supplies for my facial skin care is nice so that I can keep the delicate skin on my face looking its best. The cleansers that I have been using are perfect for my needs.

My facial cleansers have helped me to have a beautiful glow day in and day out. The cleansers are great for keeping the skin on my face from getting dry and from flaking. They also help to control the oily parts of my face so that I don’t get breakouts. I love the fresh feeling that I get after using the cleansers whether it is in the morning or in the evening.

dentures 2The methods discussed yesterday are definitely usable as methods to clean your dentures. The problem is that the soda and vinegar solutions are not as effective as the bleach method. The bleach solution is the one used the most but the American Dental Association advises against using bleach because it can whiten the pink part of your dentures.

Submerging your dentures in a bowl of water so they are covered and microwaving your dentures on high for 3 minutes has been found to kill germs. Be sure your whole denture is covered in water. It is best to check with your dentist first because the microwave can melt your dentures if they’re not fully submerged and also, you must know if there is any metal in your dentures. If there is you can not use the microwave method. When the dentures are cool, brush them with a cleaning solution and then rinse with mouthwash.

The safest way to disinfect your dentures is to use essential oils. A synergistic blend of 1 drop each of rosemary, tea tree and peppermint plus 3 drops of oregano essential oil in the water you submerge your dentures in will kill those nasty germs. Brush your teeth before placing them in the water and be sure to remove any adhesive you have used. Whichever method you use to disinfect your dentures, brush your tongue and the rest of the inside of your mouth because biofilms can develop there too.

denturesIf your wear dentures, you really need to read this blog. One of my readers asked me if there are any essential oils that can be used to clean her dentures. There are several ways to clean dentures naturally, some safer than others and some more effective than others. There are other ways that can keep your dentures clear of staph and MRSA infections.

There are three ways you can cleanse your dentures with products you probably have in your kitchen. You can use a solution of 1/2 water and 1/2 vinegar, or 1 teaspoon baking soda stirred into 8 ounces of water. The third solution is to use 1 part bleach to 10 parts water. Adding a teaspoon of calcium-chelating agent water softener to the bleach solution will help remove tartar buildup. For all three methods, soak your dentures for at least 20 to 30 minutes and be sure to rinse thoroughly before wearing. Tomorrow we’ll talk about keeping your dentures clear of infections that can develop into pneumonia.
