Part III: 24-33
24. Another Lemon
Those fancy creams have nothing on the little yellow fruit. Rub some lemon on your face for a brighter cheerier complextion.
25. Silk Pillowcase
Stop waking up with a tangled mess on top of your head. A silk pillowcase will help keep those luscious locks straight in the style you wore before bed better than the cotton counterparts.
Pour me another. Beer helps add body and repairs damage thanks to the hops and malt in the wonderful beverage. This one takes a little work, but all you have to do is: boil 3/4 cup of beer until it reduces to 1/4 cup, let cool, and add to 1 cup of regular shampoo.
27. Flax Seed Oil
Place some flax seed oil on a Q-tip and rub it on your eyelash line to help stimulate lash growth. The B vitamins in the oil help repair damage and get them growing.
28. Herbal Poultice
A classic herbal poultice (a poultice is an herb paste wrapped in cotton) to help fight acne is a mixture of dandelion and yellow dock. Mix the two herbs slowly with warm water until a nice paste forms. Once everything is blended put the paste on a cotton cloth and place on the affected area until the paste dries. (Also can be used for sunburns)
29. Chamomile Tea
Not just for a sore throat or upset stomach; steeped chamomile tea bags can help your complexion too. Use them warm for irritated skin on the face and cold for puffy eyes.
30. Egg Whites
If you’re like us and suffer from some super oily skin, throw a thin layer of egg whites on a freshly washed face to help decrease the shine.
Cook a serving of oatmeal with a reduced amount of milk to ensure super thickness. Use the mixture as an extremely powerful exfoliating mask for 10 minutes.
Add a couple of bunched of mint to water, boil and strain. Add the mint water to your shampoo bottle (use a 2-1 shampoo to water ratio). Use your shampoo and conditioner as usual and watch your oily hair disappear. Well your hair wont disappear just the oil in it.
It’s not just for sandwiches anymore. Mix 1/4 cup of mayo with two teaspoons of natural eucalyptus tree oil and apply to your hair after you shampoo. Let it sit for 10 minutes and rinse to help keep the friz down.
