Who doesn’t want glowing skin and strong, shiny hair? And yet few of us are aware that natural ingredients can greatly help us with soft and young-looking skin and beautiful hair – most of these are probably in your kitchen already! Here are 5 natural beauty tips and tricks for gorgeous skin and hair.
1. Olive Oil to Clean
Try extra virgin olive oil as a cleanser and moisturiser. Dab a small amount onto a cotton ball and wipe your face with it. You can also try mixing it with castor oil for a more heavy duty cleaning, and it’s especially good for removing makeup. You can also use olive oil as a body moisturiser after your shower.
2. Yoghurt for Moisture
Unsweetened yogurt can also work wonders at cleaning your face, locking in the moisture and refreshing dull skin. Start by splashing your face with water. Gently rub some yoghurt on your face and leave it to dry. Wash off to get that natural glow.
3. Oil Scalp Massage
Beautiful hair is the ultimate style secret, and for hair care, the most important part is the condition of your scalp. A warm oil massage can be a good moisturiser for your scalp, stimulating hair growth and improving the natural shine of your hair. Massage extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil into the scalp, leave the oil on for about half an hour, then shampoo it off.
4. Avocado Coconut Hair Mask
It sounds good enough to eat, but this makes an amazing natural hair mask. Once a month use a mask made of a ripe avocado, half a cup of coconut milk, and a tablespoon of olive oil. Leave for 30 minutes, then rinse out with cool water.
5. Avoid Chemicals
Avoid using too many chemicals on your hair for the longterm health of your hair. Give your hair a detox by ditching the serums, straightening creams and hairsprays.
