Spa experience with spare fruits and vegetables from your fridge or cabinet? It’s possible. There are many ways of pampering yourself with yummy snacks full of vitamins and minerals that can do wonders for your skin and hair.
It of course depends on your hair type but for those with frizzy and dry hair in need of some help, here are a few super simple solutions,
*A few spritzes of rosewater or sugar water on dry hair will go a long way. For the sugar water, add a teaspoon of sugar to a cup of water and mix it up. Then divide your hair into sections and apply it with your hands.
*Olive oil or melted coconut oil mask, even plain, mashed avocado is another perfect solution for dry hair. Apply either choice on your hair and after an hour wash it out and proceed with your regular shower routine.
*Another great hair mask is a combination of lemon juice, honey, and yogurt. Mix it all together and apply for an hour.
If you do any of these at least once a week for a month or two, you’ll see great results.
My friend recommended a homemade coffee and honey scrub (add a little milk if it is too sticky for your taste). Mix these together well, massage onto your face and leave it on for fifteen minutes. Your skin will feel incredibly smooth. This scrub cleans pores, removes dead skin and helps blemishes.
Avocado, the holy grail of multipurpose foods will soften your skin, clean your pores, and leave your face glowing. Cut and mash it up, apply and leave it on for fifteen minutes. You can do this simultaneously with your hair mask, you would just need lots of avocados. Make sure to apply moisturizer after to avoid skin irritation.
Doing these once a week for a month and you will see great skin improvement.
