Oatmeal: This common breakfast food is both exfoliating and moisturizing for the skin.
1. Treat yourself to an oatmeal facial once a week by combining 1 package of plain instant oatmeal, a half a cup of water, 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey, and one egg white. After mixing thoroughly, apply all over the face, let sit for 15 minutes, and rinse with warm water.
Apples + Honey = Beautiful Skin. Enough said.
1. Combine a finely grated apple of your choice with 4 tablespoons of slightly warmed honey. Apply a thin layer to face and let sit for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water. If you have sensitive skin, skip the apple and just apply the warm honey.
Apple Cider Vinegar: A.C.V. has been called a miracle fluid because of its beauty and health benefits. It is believed that this vinegar can help to burn fat and suppress appetite, as well as regulate the PH of the skin and remove build up from the hair.
1. Mix a ½ a cup of the vinegar with 1 quart of water and use as a hair rinse after shampooing and before conditioning. To fight dandruff, leave on for 5 minutes before rinsing.
2. For acne prone skin, mix 1 parts vinegar with 2 parts water, soak a cotton ball with the mixture and apply all over the face as a toner.
