Well, as for my skin, I take 2 aspirin (for headache) and melt in my hand using only water. I scrub my skin then rinse off. I take 75% olive oil & 25% castor oil and rub my face and massage the skin for about 2 minutes. Steam about twice (with a hot washcloth) then wipe off. All the dirt is removed and my skin is soooo soft afterwards. Sometimes, I apply a couple of drops of aloe vera gel afterwards. I don't have anymore breakouts, no dryness and my skin is always soft as a baby's bottom!

I'm maintaining healthy hair in this recession by using Ayurvedic hair care from my local Indian grocer. There prices are so recession friendly and the products work better than any professional or store brand I have used thus far.

Note: buying Ayurvedic hair care online might not be recession friendly due to shipping costs, therefore I suggest buying it in bulk online to minimize the need to reorder frequently.
