Natural face care: Recipe for Oatmeal Cleansing Grains

My skin and I have had a long journey together. In my teens and early twenties, I experienced severe acne that left me self-conscious, uncomfortable, and seeking solutions in years of antibiotics, harsh topical treatments, and various skin cleansing systems. The results were temporary, the expense was great, and the side effects were pretty gnarly. Eventually, I gave that approach up, and figured I was destined to a life of irritable skin.

Natural cold remedies: ginger-scallion tea

You know when you suddenly have that achy feeling in your neck and shoulders, slight chills, a light fever, fatigue, and a slight headache? Maybe you start sneezing uncontrollably, and your nose starts dripping. Ah yes, you’re “coming down with something”! Oh no!

With the right self-care, you can often kick that cold out before it starts developing into something nasty. Thankfully, ginger and scallion are the perfect herbal allies for those early-onset cold symptoms! Ginger and scallion work together to warm you up from the inside out, produce a light sweat, and kick that cold from the surface of your body. Take that, cold!
