8 Natural Beauty Treatments -- From Your Kitchen

Posted: 07/01/2011 8:39 am

Revive, rejuvenate or completely rescue your dry, dull or lifeless hair and skin with nature's pure and potent properties. Eight all-natural recipes made with fresh, organic and raw ingredients offer a variety of beneficial results for your hair and skin. Try topical applications of these scrubs, serums and tinctures and watch the quick and transforming results -- right from your kitchen cupboard or local health-food market!

Remember to prepare your rescue remedies by using fresh and organic ingredients. Have fun roaming your local farmers market. Try grabbing handfuls of herbs and other natural ingredients from your personal garden or, depending upon your locale, by venturing into nearby meadows and fields. You can host your own BYO Beauty Buffet for a girls' home-spa event and have fun trying these all-natural remedies.

Avocado is a restorative fruit, perfect for protecting and balancing your hair and skin. It is often called the "ultimate beauty fruit" because it delivers nourishing natural oils and other benefits. The vitamin A in avocado adds sheen to hair, vitamin B balances oil production, whether your skin and hair are too oily or dry, and vitamin E protects and repairs sun and pollution damage.

You can simply mash up one or two avocados into a mud and apply to hair or skin; for a deluxe treatment, try adding:

1 tablespoon of warmed raw organic honey
1 tablespoon of organic mayonnaise or almond oil
Apply to face, body, and hair (cover hair with shower cap) and let sit for 15 minutes, then rinse well and shampoo if necessary.
