Stelatria cream

This will be a short post because I don't like this product. It's a baby cream from Mustela and I think it shouldn't be prescribed to grown people! My doctor prescribed it after previous three products haven't worked. I wrote a post about them so go and check it out (http://poko07.blogspot.hr/2015/01/seborrheic-dermatitis-and-products-ive.html ).
This condition can really test your patience from time to time just because you try loads of products and they work and you're so happy and then you're back at the beginning! Now I'm trying some natural stuff and I hope I'll see some changes.

A lady once told me that baby products on a skin of a grown person is not going to work as well as on babies skin. Well, baby oil showed her wrong. Just recently I started using baby oil and I can't be more satisfied. I put it on straight after I had a shower, while my skin is still wet. I massage it in and then I dry myself.
I have Keratosis pilaris on my arms and it's been a lot better since I started using the oil. Overall my skin has been a lot smoother and I would definitely recommend you try it.
This oil has many uses, you can put it in your hair preventing damage, you can also massage it into your feet, putting on socks and leaving it over night for dry skin on your feet, also you can use it as a shaving oil or aftershave.
If you have another great tip for how to use baby oil please write it down in the comments!

Shampoo for sensitive scalpe

Recently my scalp got very bad and my doctor gave me Cystiphane Biorga. I've been using it for some time now and my scalp only got a bit better.  I expected more from this shampoo because last time my scalp was this bad I used shampoo called Squaphane P, which is amazing  and it should be the same as Cystiphane. Unfortunately it's not the same and I will have to find a new ''miracle'' shampoo! Please don't be turned off by my experience, just because it didn't work for me it doesn't mean that it won't work for you!

Great shampoo for sensitive scalp

I used to spend loads of money on shampoos until I discovered Yves Rocher and their Hamamelis Soft Shampoo. It took a while for my scalp to get used to but after that it was amaizing. Itchines was all gone and my Sebhorrheic Dermatits almost completely disappeared. I tried Botanical Hair Care Purifying Shampoo which is great if you don't have sensitive sculp but you do have very oily hair. My scalp started itching again so I'm back on the hamamaelis shampoo. It is a fraction of the price of those prescription shampoos so I think it's worth a try.

Somerset shaving oil

I have to admit that I had no idea that shaving oils exist and that are actually really good. So when I heard about it I immediately googled it and found a review on the Somerset shaving oil and I thought why not. So I bought it and I can't say my mind was blown because I used it in the winter time. This oil contains peppermint which leaves you with a cooling sensation and I can tell you that it's not comfortable stepping out from the warm shower in to the cold bathroom.
Product comes in a small bottle but it lasts for a long time because you only use couple of drops. It is softening the hair and therefore making it easier to shave. The only downside is that it clogs up your raiser. 
Anyway I will wait until summer to give my final judgment. If you have any other suggestion please tell me :D 

Alverde tinted moisturizer

Lately I wanted to try a tinted moisturizer so I got one from Alverde. At first I was quite pleased with it. My skin was so smooth and perfect, it even sorted my Seborrheic Dermatitis. But then over night things got so worse like never before and my skin still isn't like it was before. I am not saying that the product itself is bad but it's not working for Seborrheic Dermatitis.  I am still in a hunt for a good moisturizer so if you have some recommendations be free to leave it in the comments below :)

Recipie #2 Homemade granola breakfast

Lately I have started eating more healthy. I'm eating more fruit, vegetable, graines and seeds. Since my breakfasts weren't really that healthy and would consist mainl of bakery produce I decided that this was the first thing I will start my change with. So I made my homemade granola and got so excited because posibilities are endless. You can add plain milk,almond, oat,soy or rice milk, greek yoghurt, any fruit like bannaas, rasperries or eat it on its own.

Here is the recipie:

300g of oat meal
3 tbsp of honey (or any other sweetener)
pinch of salt
cup of any dried fruit
cup of any seeds

Your measurments don't have to be the same as mine! Just take your container and fill it with oats leaving enaugh room for seeds and dried fruit and according to that modify sweetner.

Preheat your oven to 180°C. Mix oats, dried fruit, honey and salt and spread it on a baking sheet in a thin layer. Bake for 10 minutes, then stir and continue baking for 5 minutes, then add seeds and stir once more. Return to oven for 5- 10 minutes until granola is lightly golden, then take it out and leave it to cool. Once its cold you can transfer it to your container. And that is it!

Hope you'll try it :)
