That Natural Glow
In the past few days I’ve been thinking about many things I find useful and beneficial for my skin and hair and I’m so grateful to Sunaina for giving me the chance to share some of my tips with you. I try to use products which are all natural because I believe such things are the best, but I wander around a bit and explore as well.
When it comes to masks, I use them both for my hair and my skin since I try very hard to keep them both healthy (and I like my hair long and shiny too). I sometimes notice that my hair has lost its natural shine and that it looks damp and lifeless. I use homemade masks which are very simple and easy to make. My favourite is the one with mayonnaise and strawberries (don’t be too grossed out, it was for my hair, not me) because it smells divine! I just mix about eight strawberries and 2 tablespoons of mayo and leave it on my wet hair for fifteen minutes before I shampoo it out.
Now, because my face tends to get uncomfortably dry at times, I like to make this really simple mask which helped me many times. It’s very simple, you just put a couple of aspirins in a few drops of water, add a tablespoon of warm honey and another tsp. of coconut oil. I keep it on my face for about 10 minutes, until it’s all nice and dry, and just wash it off with lukewarm water. This one is also amazing if your skin is prone to acne because aspirin does wonders with redness.
As you can see, I love to keep it all simple and as clean as possible, so when I can use one product for more than one purpose I fallin love with it immediately. That’s why I love love loved Moroccan hot oil treatments which did wonders for both my hair and skin. I apply it to my hair after I shampoo it and before I blow-dry it and I noticed my hair became so soft afterwards. I also learned that these oils can be applied to the face and so I do it in the evening, after I remove my makeup. However, when it’s really cold outside, I add a couple of drops to my foundation for extra protection and natural skin glow.
Speaking of oils, another product I’m in love with is coconut oil. It can fix pretty much anything so I like to use it to help my skin recover and I also add a bit of it to my shampoo from time to time. I also made a great exfoliator with it too. Try mixing a cup of coffee grinds with half a cup of coconut oil and massaging areas where you have cellulite. Caffeine + coconut oil? Killer combination!
Hope you find something useful here guys. Comment below if you have something to add or share experience you had with these products.
