Taking care of your skin and hair doesn’t have to mean expensive spa treatments that break the bank. Looking your best also doesn’t have to mean subjecting your body to harsh or dangerous chemicals. Pamper yourself from head to toe right at home using natural ingredients that leave you feeling refreshed, younger, and even more beautiful.
For healthy shiny hair and skin, the best thing you can do is eat a well-balanced diet of lean proteins, healthy fats, and antioxidant-packed fruits and veggies. Additionally, for shiny locks, be sure to use a sulfate-free shampoo. Try a vinegar rinse to rid your hair of residue or buildup from hair products after shampooing. Make a cleansing rinse of equal parts apple cider vinegar and water, let sit, and then rinse with plain water. If your hair tends to be greasy, gently cleanse extra oils from your scalp by adding three tablespoons of sea salt directly to your bottle of shampoo.
13. Lashes and Brows
Long, luxurious lashes and full eyebrows brighten your face and make your eyes pop. To nourish the hair follicles of your eyebrows, massage them with a dab of castor oil. Leave on for 30 minutes, then wipe away and wash your face with warm water as usual. Castor oil contains ricinoleic acid, an anti-inflammatory agent that aids in circulation and can stimulate hair growth. Thoroughly clean an old mascara tube and wand and fill with castor oil and vitamin E to coat your clean eyelashes at bedtime. This can help thicken lashes and prevent breakage.
