3 Sugar Scrubs for Beautiful Skin || Health Care Solutions


Scrubs are probably one of the most fun ways to take care of your beauty and hygiene. It’s so much fun to know what awesome things are going into the scrub and knowing how it will help your skin. They can also be colorful, and the smooth soft skin you have afterward just feels nice!

However, there are so many choices out there, and whenever I go on Pinterest or Google a good scrub idea, I find it hard to make a decision. So I thought I’d curate a list of five scrubs that you can try out and see which one you like best. Because small lists of awesome things are pretty cool.



DIY Blueberry Lemon Body ScrubBlueberry-lemon-scrub-31

When this one caught my eye, I thought two things. One: that color is pretty awesome. Two: blueberries have antioxidants in them.. that sounds great to my skin!
Created by Dear Crissy, this scrub includes coconut oil which has great moisturizing, cleansing, and anti-aging benefits for skin (you can buy coconut oil online, since that will save you from having to make a store run).
The blueberries have antioxidants in it which fight free radicals (this is something that causes skin aging ), and cancer cells. She also adds lemon extract which is great, especially if you have any scar tissue, as lemon is a natural bleacher and can lighten and even out your skin tone.

DIY Chocolate Mint Sugar Scrub

I put cocoa powder in a lot of things; oatmeal, cake in a mug, coffee drinks, but I’ve never put it into a skincare product before. Which is why I was immediately drawn to this one.
It seems that coconut oil is one of the main ingredients in a lot of scrubs out there. And it makes sense, unlike other oils, it’s able to firm up in room temperature and make for a nice scrub texture (and it has tons of benefits as well I suppose).
Created by Jody Arsenault, this scrub includes cocoa powder (which helps to tighten skin, fight aging, and prevent breakouts), almond oil (which helps in the moisturizing and lightening skin, and contains Vitamin E which helps with anti-aging and healing), and peppermint (which helps calm and soothe your skin).

DIY: Coconut Coffee Scrub

If you already have coconut oil, then that’s good, because you already have the main ingredient down for these first three scrubs. It seems like coconut oil is the key ingredient for a lot of scrubs out there (and I can’t blame the people who make them, the oil has some pretty awesome benefits).
Created by Bev Weidner, the coffee has awesome antioxidants in it (you know, the stuff that helps to prevent aging), as well as skin firming properties which help to give you a more youthful look (or keep it longer). So if you’re already into coffee (or a bit of an addict), then all you have to do is go to your kitchen, get some coffee, and start on that scrub!

DIY: COCONUT COFFEE SCRUB

DIY: COCONUT COFFEE SCRUB
About 1/2 cup of used coffee grounds in it. So to build on that, I added 1/4 cup of sugar in the raw, to make it more exfoliation-y. Then I thought, “OH YEAH, doo, bow, chick chicka chicka. I’ll add coconut oil!” But I melted it first, which is totally not necessary. So don’t do that part.
And you know what else? The second time I made it, I didn’t use the sugar, and it was totally the same! Maybe even better. Not quite as gravely. Not quite like you’re rolling around in parking-lot bar grit after too many frozen margs, with Kid Rock’s “Cowboy” blaring from a broken window. Not that that’s happened to me.
So basically, goes like this: 1/2 cup of used coffee grounds + 1/4 cup coconut oil (straight from the jar, no melting.) Mix mix mix.
And you get this lovely lil’ treat:::
Yaaas. It might look completely crazy to you, but I can’t get enough of it!
First of all, it SMELLS MARVELOUS. Coffee plus coconut, are you even kidding?
Second of all, it takes 15 seconds to pull together. You’re totally ready for spa day before you can say, “totally ready for a spa day.”
Third of all, it’s free! (If you already have coconut oil, which obviously you do.)
Fourth of all, it’s saving the planet! You like saving the planet, don’t you? Yes.
Fifth of all, your.skin.will.be.so.soft.it’s.straight.ridic.
Sixth of all, how many songs did I reference in this post? Way, way too many.

Now for a couple of tips! If you have one of those non-slip sticky things in your tub, I’d highly advise taking it out before you use this scrub. Those grounds will get stuck under there so fast and you’ll be crying a river and forcing me into another song reference.
Second tip: I’m not so sure how safe it is for pregnant gals to use this, with the caffeine all busting up through your epidermis like that. So maybe use decaf grounds, just to be on the safe side, and so that I don’t get sued. I have to shave my legs today, and that’s already too much on my plate.
Okay, what else can I do with leftover coffee grounds? Because Lord knows I need another obsession. Ugh.
Get scrubby!

DIY Blueberry Lemon Body Scrub

DIY Blueberry Lemon Body Scrub



DIY Blueberry Lemon Body ScrubIngredients:

  1. ½ cup coconut oil
  2. 1 cup white sugar
  3. 1 tablespoon or so of freeze dried blueberries (freeze dried over fresh will give you nice color, a powder that will easily break down instead of blueberry pieces that might not wash away or down the drain well and will not need refrigeration. But fresh is certainly an option if you have them on hand and will be enjoying this right away).
  4. A few drops of lemon essential oil optional 1 small drop of blue food coloring

Method:

  1. Start by breaking down the freeze dried blueberries. You can do this by smashing them with your fingers or using the food processor. Once you have that part taken care of, add the sugar, coconut oil, essential oil and option food coloring. Mix until well combined. If using the food coloring, you may need to pay a little extra attention to make sure the color is evening mixed in.
  2. Optional, if you have fresh lemon, you could zest 1 small lemon onto a tray or oven safe dish and then dry it by placing it in the oven at 350 degrees for a few minutes. You’ll know it’s ready when you start to smell a robust lemon scent coming from the oven. Stay close, this only takes a few minutes. Its certainly an extra step but would be so pretty mixed in with the blue! Like using fresh blueberries, you could certainly use fresh lemon zest if you plan to use this within a week or so, you might just want to keep it refrigerated if you go fresh.
  3. Store in an airtight container and take a little extra care when using as the coconut oil will make surfaces seem slicker. I typically apply a scrub like this as the last thing I do in the shower, then rinse off and pat dry with a towel to leave as much of the coconut oil on as it is very moisturizing for your skin.

How To Get Rid Of Chest Congestion Fast || Health Care Solutions

November 20, 2017 1
One of the many unpleasant cold symptoms, chest congestion can make breathing a Herculean task. It is a common companion of major cold and flu symptoms like a runny nose, coughing and sneezing. The natural remedies listed here can help you to safely get rid of chest congestion fast and easily at home.

How To Get Rid Of Chest Congestion Fast || Health Care Solutions

Causes and Symptoms of Chest Congestion

  • Chest congestion is a symptom rather than a disease in itself and is chiefly caused by viral, bacterial and fungal infections. Common colds, the flu, bronchitis, pneumonia, and tuberculosis are some of the conditions that may bring on chest congestion.
  • Severe chest congestion may interfere with the heart’s ability to effectively pump blood throughout the body, causing congestive heart failure.
  • Chest congestion can be described as an accumulation of fluids and mucus in the lungs. It is marked by difficulty breathing, pain, discomfort, coughing and wheezing. A cough may be dry or mucus-expelling, depending on the condition.

Prevention of Chest Congestion

  • Smoking should be avoided, especially if you’re already suffering from the flu. Tobacco smoke can act as an irritant and cause dysfunction in normal mucus production.
  • If you’re suffering from the flu and have a mild cough, avoid chilled beverages and iced drinks until you’re back in good shape. Also, avoid oily foods as they promote mucus production in the chest lining.

How to Get Rid of Chest Congestion

Popping pills right off the bat is not the right way to treat common respiratory ailments, including chest congestion. In such cases, the drugs usually do more harm than good by disrupting the body’s normal recovery process.
On the other hand, natural remedies work with the body and not against it to achieve a full recovery.
The natural remedies listed below will help you get rid of your chest congestion and breathe easy.

Method 1: Use a DIY Decongestant

This DIY decongestant has all the right ingredients to help ease symptoms and promote healing.
Due to the probiotics present in apple cider vinegar, it can help beat your congestion at its root by targeting the infection itself. Lemon juice will provide your body with vitamin C, which can help neutralize the effects of the pathogens in your body.
Cayenne pepper can help clear your sinuses and thin out the mucus. Ginger will boost your immune system and prevent mucus buildup. The purpose of honey in the recipe is not just to improve taste. Honey has bactericidal properties to treat the infection and will also relieve the soreness in your throat.
Things you’ll need:

  • Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (ACV) (targets the infection) – ¼ cup
  • Lemon juice, freshly squeezed (helps neutralize the effects of bacteria) – ¼ cup
  • Raw honey (treats the infection) – 3 tablespoons
  • Ginger powder (prevents mucus buildup) – ½ teaspoon
  • Cayenne pepper powder (helps clear sinuses) – ½ teaspoon

Step 1. Simmer lemon juice and ACV in a pan


  • Pour ¼ cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice into a pan.
  • Pour in ¼ cup of raw, unfiltered ACV as well.
  • Place the pan over heat and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Turn the heat down and let it simmer for about 2 minutes.

Step 2. Stir in cayenne and ginger powder along with honey


  • Take the pan off the heat.
  • Add ½ teaspoon each of cayenne pepper and ginger powder to it.
  • Pour in 3 tablespoons of raw honey.
  • Mix the ingredients thoroughly.

Step 3. Store and use the decongestant daily to clear chest congestion


  • Pour the mixture into a container.
  • Shake well before each use to get the most out of the remedy, as the powders in the recipe tend to settle.
  • Take 1 to 2 tablespoons of the mixture daily to relieve chest congestion.
Repeat the remedy until the congestion clears.

Method 2: Use Onion

Onion is one of the oldest natural remedies used to get rid of chest congestion. Sulfur and quercetin present in onions are responsible for the stinging and the waterworks that get going when you get near a fresh-cut onion. They can also be of immense help to facilitate decongestion when you’re struggling to breathe.
Things you’ll need:

  • Onion, peeled and quartered (relieves chest congestion) – 1
  • Clean towel

Step 1. Cut and heat an onion


  • Peel an onion and cut it into 4 parts.
  • Heat the cut onion in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Step 2. Make a poultice


  • Remove the hot onion pieces from the microwave and put them into a small towel.
  • Bundle up the towel to make a poultice.

Step 3. Place the warm onion poultice on your chest or back


  • Test the temperature of the poultice so that it’s bearable.
  • Place the onion poultice on the bare skin of your chest or back. Keep it there for 30 minutes at a time.
  • For best results, cover the poultice with a warm compress.
Do this daily until the chest congestion is gone.

Method 3: Use Steam with Essential Oils

The best way to break up congestion is to steam it out with essential oils. Steam carries the essential oil vapors through the nasal cavity to the area gripped with congestion. The antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of essential oils make them effective against the infection that’s causing the congestion.
Eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils are the most appropriate choices when it comes to decongestion, as both are effective in clearing out the nasal passages. Eucalyptus oil is considered an excellent expectorant. Not only does peppermint oil soothe and calm the body, it also has analgesic properties.
Things you’ll need:

  • Water – 2 cups
  • Eucalyptus essential oil (clears nasal passage) – 5 to 10 drops
  • Peppermint essential oil (soothes and calms your body)– 5 to 10 drops

Step 1. Boil the water and pour it into a bowl


  • Pour 2 cups of water into a pan and bring it to a boil.
  • Pour the steaming hot water into a bowl.

Step 2. Add in the essential oils


  • Put 5 to 10 drops each of eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils into the bowl of steaming water.

Step 3. Steam out the congestion


  • Cover your head with a towel, making a sort of tent to trap the steam.
  • Bend over the bowl to breathe in the vapors of the essential oils. As your nasal passages start opening, breathe in as slow and deep as you can.
Repeat 2 or 3 times daily until the congestion goes away.

Method 4: Use a Vapor Rub

# Vicks Vapor Rub

Vicks Vapor Rub is a common household name and is considered a cure-all for a majority of cold-related ailments. Some of the active ingredients in the popular brand formula are eucalyptus oil, turpentine oil, and camphor, all of which are considered very effective decongestants.
When applied to the chest, you can breathe in its vapors. This helps the active ingredients reach into the body easily and work to relieve congestion.

Single-Step Treatment: Apply Vapor Rub on your chest and breathe


  • Take some Vicks Vapor Rub on your fingers and rub it over your chest and throat.
  • Cover the area with a towel or a thick cloth.
Repeat the remedy until you find relief from congestion.
Note: The normal Vicks formulation is not suitable for children under age 2.

# DIY Vapor Rub

If you’re wary of the popular vapor rub brands and don’t trust the ingredients that they might be using, a DIY vapor rub is just what you need. It’s simple to make, easy to use and can be applied to people of all ages without fear of any side effects.

It contains choice essential oils in a skin-friendly base of coconut oil and shea butter. Eucalyptus and peppermint oils, known for their benefits against colds, congestion, and mild fevers, are the main constituents.
Lavender and lemon oils lend more than calming effects to the rub and work as an antihistamine and an immune-booster, respectively. This recipe also contains tea tree oil for added benefits.
All you need to do is gather the ingredients, whip them up, store the resulting vapor rub and use as needed until your chest congestion is treated completely. This gentle formulation can be safely used on children.
Note: Do not apply this DIY vapor rub directly over or under the nose. For infants or small babies, rub a small amount on the bottoms of their feet only and put their socks on.

Tips

  • If the DIY homemade decongestant proves too strong for you, reduce the amount of cayenne pepper and ginger powder to half.
  • When stored in a cool and dark environment, the DIY decongestant can keep for a long time.
  • Shea butter can be substituted with cocoa butter in the DIY vapor rub recipe or skip it all together if need be. A simple coconut oil base can be used in a pinch.
  • Add beeswax to the DIY vapor rub to give it a firmer texture.
  • Some other essential oils that can be used to make a DIY vapor rub to get rid of chest congestion include thyme, basil, rosemary, pine, clove, marjoram, and chamomile.
