Green Gift-Giving Ideas

I love Lee Valley. If I need something for my home or if I want to get a gift, this is always my first stop (of course, after checking out some vintage shops first). They sell neat and useful gadgets that are eco-friendly and made to last (quality!). They also sell many plastic-free games and toys that teach problem-solving skills and non-violence (unlike most video games and toys out there today). 

Skin Care

Oils are Good for Your Skin

While some people are misinformed about the relationship between oil and skin, others have tried serums but didn't use them correctly. You must apply on damp skin - that is, after you wash your face or after you apply toner. This allows for easy application and for the serum to be distributed evenly. The other reason why people are hesitant to try serums is because they seem to be expensive. If you use 4 drops a day and a 25ml container provides 500 drops, this means that one little jar will last 125 days or 4 months!
