“get naked, get dirty, get rough, get clean.”  is the hot slogan of this sexy and clean skincare regime. frank is a coffee scrub that’s made in 2 formulas: “original” and “coconut & grapeseed.” I purchased the coconut & grapeseed formula because I’m less partial to orange (original).

Frank is natural & vegan and is known for scrubbing away dry skin, moisturizing, cleansing & clarifying. Frank is the man! He targets cellulite, stretch marks, psoriasis, varicose veins, eczema and acne. What more can you ask for in a man?! 

Frank is made from ground Arabica coffee beans, cold pressed sweet almond oil, sugar and sea salt. They all have amazing healthful qualities and will 100% change the feel of your skin.

After using frank – I found that my skin was extremely soft for days on end! Definitely smelled like a latte after getting out of the shower! Whether you like the smell of coffee or not, you’re going to LOVE what frank can do for your skin. Plus it’s fun. 🙂

Because everybody else is doing it…

Oil Pulling – What’s the Point & Other Thoughts…

Quite the craze over “oil pulling” lately. Check various venues of social media and you’re guaranteed to see one of your ‘friends’ posting about it. So I’m doing some 1st hand research for all of you skeptics. WTF is it, you ask?

You swish or hold or gargle oil in your mouth for 20 minutes, no more no less to help improve your oral health & overall health. Interesting enough…

This article is super helpful. Give’s everything from how-to’s to tips & findings.

And basically, there’s little to NO evidence at all that supports anything that people “say” about oil pulling. What are they saying?!

Organic coconut oil will create a slick surface and hopefully prevent any bacteria from entering into the body. Coconut oil seems to be the most widely used form of oil pulling although other vegetable oils work (sesame, olive, sunflower). The coconut oil has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, & anti-inflammatory properties, plus does not taste bad at all. ❤ Put anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon, depending on what you can handle, in your mouth & swish for 20 minutes.

After swishing for 20 minutes, which YES is a long time you spit it out. Spit into the garbage because the oil will clog your drains otherwise. 😉 Then chug water. REALLY FAST! Kidding, it doesn’t matter how fast I just drink fast. I don’t care what people say 20 minutes is long to do something this boring- it’s 20 minutes and it’s not exactly comfortable. I definitely, 100% recommend trying to oil pull while you’re doing other things – like running around your house/getting ready for work/showering/being lazy. Not while too sleepy in the morning because of fear of swallowing.

Supposed benefits:

+ Whitens teeth

+ Strengthens your gums/teeth/& jaw. It helps with sensitive teeth & even has reported to help with TMJ.

+ Prevents cavities & gingivitis & benefits overall oral health. I think this takes a lot of swishing though. 😉

+ Helps ease the symptoms of acne/ eczema/ psoriasis/ & other skin care issues. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THIS.

+ Helps the ease the symptoms of a hangover & a migraine. – HA this must be a joke.

+ Has been said to help people who have sleep issues.

+ Clears out your sinuses.

+ If you have halitosis, oil pulling has been said to be a big savior for many sufferers. People reported that their morning breath improved greatly.

+ Helps with general oral pain issues.

+ Could assist in hormonal imbalances.

Mostly what I see/feel immediately is softness – my teeth feel softer and smoother. My gums feel softer and smoother. My lips look extremely chapped, though. Need to use that coconut oil on them ASAP.
