Make your own ice packs from sponges and ziploc bags. Just soak the sponges in water, squeeze out the excess place in bags and freeze over night. Then toss them in your lunch bag to keep snacks cool! This is also great if you don’t have enough ice trays and need to keep drinks cool or if you went too hard at the gym and need to ice your knee.

I’ve used sunscreen for years to protect my skin; in fact, it’s a vital part of my anti-aging regimen. However, I’ve always had a hard time finding a broad spectrum safe sunscreen with ingredients that won’t irritate my skin. That’s where Goddess Garden Organics Sunscreen comes in.

Their product does NOT contain any “ikky” ingredients, it’s biodegradable, non-nano and it comes in recyclable packaging. Not to mention, they sent me a bunch of product samples to try and they are giving all Savvy Brown readers a chance to try a FREE bottle of sunscreen!
This coffee facial scrub is full of antioxidants which help fight free radicals and aging. It also helps reduce puffiness, acting as a mild diuretic as the skin’s fluid is drawn away from fat cells. As I mentioned in the Savvy Brown FB Group, I love using leftover coffee grounds as a body scrub. I also have started using them as a facial scrub and it’s been working great! I like using espresso grounds because they’re smaller and because…well..espresso. It’s crazy simple: Continue reading
If you’re looking for a simple, effective, skin clarifying face wash for all skin types that won’t break the bank, try this DIY Foaming Face Wash.
When it comes to skin care, people often place more importance on skin color than skin type while making decisions about products. In fact, many companies hope that you’ll make the same mistake as well; that way, they can target their products to a particular ethnic group. These products often come at a wildly different price point or with questionable ingredients. That’s called “target marketing” and it doesn’t always make for good skin care. Continue reading
I’ve talked before about organic rosehip seed oil before and it’s myriad of benefits. One thing I love using it for is as an eye makeup remover because not only is it great at removing stubborn waterproof mascara, a little goes a long way and it also has the added benefit of being a great way to combat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. It’s a double whammy! And you know I love multitasking my products. Here’s the one I’m currently using: Continue reading
Too often we are more worried about what products we are putting on our skin to make it appear healthy, versus the foods we are putting in our bodies that actually boost skins health. Here are 8 foods that you can eat to help give your skin a boost…from the inside. Continue reading
The last time I talked about making my own dishwasher soap, I suggested that you use Kool Aid (because of the citric acid). But since then, I have found an even SIMPLER DIY Dishwashing Powder for you to mix up. I actually mixed this up when I ran out of both Kool-Aid AND the Method dishwashing tabs I was using. The best part? It only takes 3 ingredients! Continue reading
I have one of these in my shower. It’s filled ¼ with castile soap, a capful of hydrogen peroxide and the rest water. When I’m done with my shower, before I turn the water off, I scrub down the walls and faucets really quick before letting the rest of the shower water wash the suds away. By the time I clean the shower on the weekend, there’s not much to do!
