I love beauty products, take me to Sephora and I am like a kid in a candy store. However…… I now live in central Mexico and life is different.
I am a fair, sensitive-skinned redhead. I also have drier/middle age skin. So what’s a girl to do? Use local – Mexican made products and keep it simple!!! The other day when I was at the grocery store (instead of my local market), I saw a few products.
– Coconut butter (in the glass dish). Excellent for cleaning off make-up, moisturizer, hair conditioner, antibacterial and you need a very small amount, it also smells and tastes great. I also use it for cooking and in smoothies.
– Aloe vera (I brought this from Canada but I do have 2 plants and you can buy it everywhere). Aloe vera is soothing, moisturizer, helps heal cuts, great for so many things. I also have aloe vera juice that I drink every morning :).
– Almond oil, oh my this smells absolutely delicious and a small bottle is cheap.
– Rosewater spray, again smells wonderful. Rosewater is very soothing to irritated skin.
These products are great and so much cheaper that department store products. Give these a try and I would love to hear from you on other products.
Instead of tequila I put a mixture of avocado oil, olive oil and almond oil. Ohhhhhh, so nice for the skin after a shower or add it to your bath water.
