Astro-Beauty: Your Own Personal Hippy

Beautiful Hippie at Woodstock

Could this be YOU heading out to pick some reishi mushrooms for your new face potion? Or never in a trillion years? I only ask because i just made my own antioxidant body lotion – plain petro-poly-gycol-shit free base with powdered vitamin C stirred in – & then thought Is This Normal?Β  Or, rather than worrying about norms, is it a throwback to hippy-dom OR the coming thing, part of the craft revolution? Is it an Earth sign thing? And whom cares to share their face D.I.Y. recipes for beauty masques et al.Β  I once did the egg in hair thing – egg yolk & mayonnaise – but rinsed it off with too hot water so it turned into something akin to an omelette. For a date with a LEO. Yick. Leos trust only brands and billions-of-dollars-funded-laboratories and the word of proper spokesmodels.

Tried grated apples as a mask..the fruit acid thing…..my naturally olive skin
turned white but very smooth.
Was a Gucci Fiorucci hippie waaay back when but still used Clinique in my
love peace & insence days.

Cold mashed potatoe, my sister slapped this on her sisters when she was going through beauty school. I remember us being impressed by it.

” Leos trust only brands and billions-of-dollars-funded-laboratories and the word of proper spokesmodels” sorry for us earth bound Leos this is not true. I only wear all natural skin care no celeb guff for me.

Olive oil as a hair treatment. It really is wonderful. Just 3-4 tablespoons lovingly massaged into both your hair and scalp is great during these dry winter months. Keep it on for as long as you like but al least an hour, wash as per normal and enjoy that silky softness.

She looks like she has snuck out for a smoke as her in-laws whose stupid farm it is think she does not smoke. She does not let a thing touch her face unless it has polypeptides from the institute of neuro-complexion science and a supermodel “face”. She has lied and lied about being a “yoga teacher” but she actually brokers amateur porn clips.

I am hippie by high school standards, but that isn’t saying much. However, I do love Yoga, as well as meditation. I dye some of my own t-shirts, and prefer to buy Organic Cotton and fair trade clothing. I make my own soap and use olive oil as a moisturizer (BTW, that Extra Virgin Olive Oil is AMAZING) Maybe I am a hippie

Have really been getting into the rosehip oil and lavender on the face at night time. Fancy high-tech something-hydroxy cream is making me flake and break out (Well, my skin at least – not sure what’s having that effect on the rest of me *LOL* πŸ™‚ )

And it’s not a natural remedy at all, but my tip for the day is that having a sparkling clean bathroom mirror in which to admire my freshly washed / made up face works wonders for the soul. Ditto a clean windscreen / windows/ smudge free sunglasses.

I descend from a family of hippies that migrated from Denmark, which is a generally hippie-ish kinda land, post-viking and all, and despite occasional rebellion against family norms, do subscribe to certain hippie traits. Plus, half-trained and worked briefly as a herbalist. Some beauty tips, seeing as you asked: – Although Rosehip Oil is great for skin, don’t use anywhere near eyes. Instead, use Jojoba or pure Vit E oil. – Rosehip Oil rubbed through the hair once a week, however, is fantastic for de-frizzing curly locks and treating dandruff. – Sea salt (the minerally kind, not too course) mixed… Read more »

I AM A TOTAL HIPPY!
RIGHT INTO NATURAL REMIDIES AND EVERYTHING BTW MYSTIC – MUGWORT + THYME + CAMOMILE IS THE BEST FACE “POTION” which also gives some very insightful dreams! dry the ingredients out and grind them in a motal and pestal, add a bit of water and lemonade (for a light fizz) and then apply. my mum does it all the time!

I like almond oil for my face, thoroughly massaged in while skin is still damp from a shower…as a Leo sun with a Virgo stellium, I’m into purity, but not the Dove soap kind with its whiteywhite suds & high concentration of palm oil thats threatening the worlds orangutan population….don’t put that on the packet do they…

I’d love to go the whole hog on making my own stuff but what holds me back is the lack of time – it’s just so easy to squeeze the tube, shake the bottle, whatever (no, not a euphemism for anything!) – and also, I shamefacedly admit, I’d just want to keep it all in nice cobalt-blue bottles, which I’m sadly lacking in. Where would I get them from?

hazel, where abouts do you live – online is probably your best bet, suppliers of all sorts out there. I had a g/f who ordeded ingredients for lovely lavender hand cresm, lip balm, got all the cute brown glass jars etc too. also coud try “Perfect Potion if in Oz, they sell the beeswax, clay powders, etc, v good organic philosophy…their stuff smells divine (if you dont have time to make it πŸ™‚ )

Oooh, thanks, UP. Yes, Google is my friend, I realise, but I was just waiting for someone to make it easy for me! Am in Orstraya so will try Perfect Potion.

What a coincidence! I was just thinking of what I could concoct to deep-condition my hair. Reached for my old stand-by Paul Mitchell instead and wore a plastic baggy over my hair. Not organic but effective! (I’m Leo rising.) As for home-made recipes, plain yogurt mixed with egg yolk and enough honey to make a masque is lovely for your face.

Did the hippie thing as a pre/young teen. Yogurt on the face, egg white and honey. Oatmeal..No recipe measurements though…

Helen Reddy sang it way back – and it made me sicko at the time – but by dog, i’m feelin it: I AM WOMAN (sic – virgo, yuh know; double actually).

No SP we don’t have Aussie hillbillies ripping bad US accents, but there’s plenty of Aussie Hiphoppers who Rap like they got black roots (vs white middle class)!!

Sabina, my friends will tell you I’m a hippy- I just can’t shake that off & to be truthful I’m kinda proud; yep I’ve done cosmic consciousness with the mushrooms & all, but must say what I’m real happyhippy about is being able to spell…even if I am too vague to string a sentence sometimes! (thats my pmt for ya!)

She looks too cool – those glasses and that innane stare – where is the joy and abandon? she looks like she could easily dress up as some other persona on another day of the week

I AGREE she is way too tense and pouty to be a hippy. round sunglasses, frilly clothes and b+w photog does not a hippy make. I know Mystic was only trying to illustrate a point. which by the way i recommend olive oil as ultimate moisturiser……….

It sounds very normal to me – there is a lot of healthy scepticism out there about the petro chemical cosmetic industry – grinding up your own brew or potion seems very la moda I have played with home made potions – beer rinses, vinegar rinses, rosemary rinses, henna – have all found there way onto my hair porridge, avocado, honey, olive oil, sesame oil and coconut oil have all been applied to my body As a taurus the idea that i must be able to eat what I apply to my body makes perfect sense to me.
