KITCHEN -BEAUTY TIPS



Some of you probably already know some of these ideas, but I hope all of you find something you would like to try!


1. Baking soda can help dry out acne, but be careful and splash rinse or it can scrape your face.


2. Oatmeal can soften your skin, use as a mask. It also will help dry oily skin without chapping and over-drying.


3. Flax seeds- keeping the body from constipation is one of the best ways of eliminating toxins, which will help keep your skin more healthy.


4. Cucumbers, zucchini, potatoes, etc can help your eyes look more youthful! (Lay slices on eyes.) These veggies can also help with oily skin by rubbing a slice over clean face.


5. Apple cider vinegar =1 part to 8 parts water, is great for oily skin.


6. 1Tablespoon of Brewer's Yeast with 2 tablespoons of water, left on for 15 minutes or more is rejuvenating! Nourishes and tightens!


7. 1 Tablespoon of honey, 1/4 teaspoon of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar, mixed in one cup of cold water makes a great lotion.


8. Avocado is good for dry skin. Use the leftover skins, to rub on. Leave for several minutes and rinse.


9. Plain yogurt is a real treat to the face, I love it under my eyes. Try it also mixed : 1 T yogurt + 1 teaspoon of honey+ an egg yolk for a great mask.


10. Egg yolks are good for your hair as a mask. Egg whites can tighten the skin, temporarily. Egg yolks can also be used for dry hands left on over night with gloves.


11. Green tea bags and chamomile tea bags should be kept for the eyes, relieves puffiness and the antioxidants are bound to be good too. But regular tea bags can perk up the face with caffeine. I love it on my eyes and between my brows!


12. You can warm a few tablespoons of olive oil over hot water and use as a great hot oil treatment.


13. Leaving yogurt on the scalp for 30 minute before shampoo can help dandruff.
