Do you want a radiant complexion that shines when you enter the room? Consider using grapes! Simply slice a few in half and rub the fleshy part over clean, damp skin. The acid in grapes acts as a natural exfoliation aid, buffing away dull, dry skin.
Soften and Tone Skin
Rose has been long applied to skin for it’s naturally softening prowess. However, you can make an all-natural softening skin toner with rose water (or by boiling actual rose petals). Not only is it filled with vitamin-E for softening purposes, it acts as an astringent, buffer, and moisturizer thanks to natural ingredients like witch hazel, sea salt, and glycerin.
If your lengthy locks are prone to breakage, you don’t have to buy overpriced shampoo. Instead, strengthen your strands by applying a mayonnaise mask (the cholesterol within plumps hair cuticles) for a thicker, stronger lock. Simply comb a half cup of mayo through generously damp hair, leave sit for 10-minutes, and rinse followed by shampoo and conditioner.
Rejuvenate Sun Burnt Skin
Spend a little too much time in the sun without any UV protection? Aloe Vera will be your skin-saving grace. This super plant can be applied directly to skin or eaten to heal burns and encourage new skin growth at a cellular level. The gel is also anti-inflammatory and extremely moisturizing so it’s safe to use on acne-, oily-, injured, or eczema prone skin.
