Allergies: The Unbearable Sniffing, Sneezing and Drainage

My name is Marilyn Baker, and I have horrible allergies. I’m 42 years old and have been suffering from allergies since I was a child. I have seasonal and environmental allergies. Allergies plague me year round. When I was young, my parents even moved to a dryer area in the hope of helping me. Over the past eight years, I have done extensive research both through doctors and online. I have managed to come up with some combinations that have helped me a great deal. My allergies aren’t gone, but they have become manageable. I do have to have allergy shots, but I also use some natural remedies. I am happy to be able to share my findings with you here on my blog. I hope you can find some of this of value.

3 Simple Items That Can Keep Your Skin Healthy For Cheap

by Clifton Davidson

Being a woman and caring for your skin can be hard. Many people find that they spend thousands of dollars every year on beauty products, not to mention a great deal of time on caring for their skin and body. Luckily, there are many simple and inexpensive things that you can do to keep your skin and face looking great without breaking the bank. Here are a couple suggestions.

1. Petroleum Jelly

Petroleum jelly has many purposes. You should always have a bottle of petroleum jelly on hand for all of your skin-care needs. For instance, every night before you go to bed, take some petroleum jelly and rub it on your clean eyelashes. This will help to protect your eyelashes in the night and make them healthier and fuller. You can spend hundreds of dollars on serums that help your eyelashes to grow and become thicker, or you can just use petroleum jelly.

Second, if you mix petroleum jelly with some sugar you can have a great exfoliate. The sugar won't dissolve in the petroleum jelly, instead it will just make a hard paste. Then rub that paste on your hands, feet, lips or anywhere else that needs to be exfoliated and watch the skin just peel away. After you have exfoliated, wash the area and reapply plain petroleum jelly for moisture.

2. Coconut Oil

Many people have heard of the benefits of coconut oil in the kitchen, but do not know how amazing it can be for your skin. Coconut oil serves as a great moisturizer that is healthy and safe enough for even babies to use. Many people use coconut oil to hydrate their skin even when they shave. The oil will give a nice thin layer of protection between your skin and the razor so that you can get a clean shave without spending lots of money on shaving creams. In addition, be sure to put more oil on after you have completed shaving, since the more hydrated your skin is, the healthier it will be.

3. Baby Wash

You don't have to spend lots of money on facial washes; instead you just need something mild enough to wash away the dirt, without hurting your skin. Baby wash is a perfect combination of the right amount of soap to cleanse without damaging your skin. Just use baby wash as you would any other kind of facial soap and be amazed and how supple and soft your skin feels.
