Skin-Softening Bath Blend Dry bath mixes have a fairly long shelf life, but you should use them within 3 to 6 months. Keep in a tightly sealed container. Do not store bath bags with oils or honey in them.
Papaya No-More-Pores Double Mask Treatment This mask’s slight bleaching action helps even skin tone and leaves skin with a wonderful glow. The papaya and pineapple help to dissolve and lift away dry scaly skin, which, over time, can build up on your skin and leave a dull appearance.
Rejuvenating Coconut Oil Hair Mask This makes enough for 1 head of medium to long hair. Add more or less of the oils depending on hair length and thickness. Coconut oil moisturizes the scalp and hair, while the olive oil conditions them. The gelatin is rich in protein, so it's very reparative to the hair, which is mainly made of protein itself.
Lip and Cheek Stain If you forget to reserve the liquid from cooking your beets, you can boil the skins that you peel from your beets.
Exfoliating Facial Sea Salt Scrub You can use sea salt as an exfoliant. Don't try this with table salt -- you need the coarser granules of sea salt for this recipe. Apple cider vinegar acts as an astringent. Mint may help with inflammation.
Hair Spray This hairspray works surprisingly well. You can use leftover lemons that have already been squeezed. The alcohol extends the shelf life of the product.
Vitamin E Balm Sunflower oil is high in vitamin E. Use this moisturizing balm on the lips, the tips of the hair or underneath the eyes. It can also be used in place of nail polish to add shine to the fingernails.
