We all hear the commercials about how eating a certain type of food can reduce wrinkles or increase skin firmness, but they are all focused on eating the food. What about if you used the food as cream or an ointment? This post has a few tips on how you can do just that.
DIY Face Mask
Do you know what Greek yogurt and natural honey have in common? They go well together to make a delicious tasting and revitalizing face mask. Mix the two until you can have created a very thick paste. Once you have the paste, apply it to your skin liberally and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Do your best not to eat it off as it works its magic!
Once the time is up, simply wash it away with fresh and clean water and use a clean dry to wipe away any excess. It’s important to replenish your skin with a good moisturizer after a thorough cleanse.
Dealing with Oily Hair
In addition to sweat, your hair follicles secrete oils which are designed to maintain your hair in the best possible condition. If not cleaned away, these oils can build up alongside hair product and cause flat and oily hair.
To remedy this, mix about 7 ounces of water with one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and use it to rinse away built-up oils and product.
Once you have rinsed out the build up, give your hair a thorough rinse with clean water so as to remove the smell. You can continue this routine once a week or each time that you can feel product building up.
If your beard often becomes unruly and you find yourself in a kitchen, look for some almond oil. Not only does it make for a great way to brown onions but it also works magic for beards. Apply a small amount to the center of one palm, rub your hands together and then work it through your beard to make it more manageable and civilized.
Just because it sounds strange doesn’t mean that it can’t work! The next time you’re stuck in a tricky spot, head to the kitchen and see how creative you can get.
