A connection with nature was always very important for my spiritual existence. It always gave me strength. I have always felt more vivid and safe around natural landscape. Here in Barcelona I found it very difficult to find a peaceful place like in the all big cities, I guess. Still the city is great, it has beautiful architecture, its own style and many things to do. But you know, sometimes you need that glimpse of the transcendental. When I walk on the beach and behold the sea and the sky, it becomes an amazing experience. This closeness to nature is important to me not only for the soul but for the body too.
Mens sana in corpore sano
that means ‘ a healthy mind in a healthy body’. It is a famous Latin quotation about the things that are the most desirable in life. This quote appears as the first one.
I take care eating well and what I put on my skin. There has been a lot of awareness about cosmetic industry and beauty products. There are many tricks and that big companies use in order to sell, it can only contain 1% of natural ingredients when in the package it is said that is natural. Be a smart buyer.
I like making my own cosmetics. That way I know exactly whats ingredients my cream has, and it is much cheaper and healthier. Here, I’m going to show you how I did a scrub of walnuts and oats for the face and body. It is great to soothe the skin which affected by this cold autumn weather.
3 tablespoons of ground walnuts
2 tablespoons of ground oats
2 tablespoons of honey
Half natural yogurt
You can make this cream the way you like it. I opted for a more rough consistency, because I wanted it to be more exfoliating. To make it more creamy-like, you have to grind all the ingredients very well, almost to the dust and add more honey and yogurt. Just be your own chemist! Experiment! You skin will thank you later and you will fell better with yourself! 😀
