Beside the obvious connotation for getting fit I’m also working toward removing as many chemicals from my life as possible.  So far most of my cleaning products are chemical free. I just a lot of baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice.

This morning, as I was getting ready for work, I ran out of face lotion. I had been using a brand that claimed its two in one formula was going to lift and reduce my wrinkles. Quite frankly I saw no improvement when I started using this product 12 months ago, I kept using it because it didn’t leave my face as greasy as my last moisturizer. Well when I ran out of my face lotion this morning I knew I didn’t have the money to replace it for a few days and that when I did it had to be a natural product, so I went to the internet to see what I could replace it with. Any guesses? Olive Oil! Well okay.

I gave it a try and what surprised me is that my skin feels soft and not oily. It was very relaxing and if I follow the advice from the blog I only have to wash my face at night so I can eliminate the face soap in my shower too.
