Better Choices - Tips for Head to Toe Healthy Summertime Beauty
July 24, 2009
What's In This Issue:
Head to Toe Beauty
Itís already July and we are in the full swing of summer. Sun, heat and wind can be rough. How is your skin and hair holding up this summer?
Healthy, Shiny Hair
Dry, frizzy unmanageable hair does not have to be the description of your hair this summer. While itís easy to find great organic and natural products that will do the job why not save some money by using natural ingredients you may already have around the house and make your own.
When making any of your own homemade skin care recipes avoid ingredients you are allergic to eating and if unsure do a patch test.
Avocado Hair Mask From Celebrity Stylist Leonardo Rocco
For oily hair Ė apply mixture to the bottom half of hair working well into ends.
1 ripe avocado peeled and mashed
Blend all ingredients. Wet hair and work mixture through hair. Cover your head with plastic wrap or shower cap and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse as best as you can then wash with a good shampoo.
Remove Product Buildup and Chlorine
2 tbs vinegar any kind will do
Pour mixture over hair and scalp after shampooing hair. Rinse thoroughly. For oily hair, use this mixture once a week, twice a month for others. I have color treated hair and use this once or twice a month.
Soft Smooth Skin
Help keep your skin looking itís best with one of these skin care recipes.
Good For Dry Skin
1 med ripe avocado
For All Skin Types
2 egg whites whipped until soft peaks are formed
Mix all ingredients. Rub gently into your skin while in the shower. Coffee is thought to help break down cellulite. Focus on those places and see if it works for you. Rinse and wash as usual.
Alternately try skin brushing as a simple easy to way to exfoliate and create healthy skin.
Add one tablespoon Epsom salts or any salt you have on hand. Soak for 10 minutes, remove feet and pat dry. Use a good scrub like the coffee one above and rub all over your feet concentrating on rough spots. Rinse thoroughly. Apply a good moisturizer or body butter like the one mentioned below.
Don't neglect feet when applying sunscreen. They are too often overlooked and always wear flip flops in public showers. It is way to easy to get athletes foot and other stuff by walking around barefoot especially in damp, moist areas.
