Everybody is becoming more and more aware of the types of chemicals that are being put into food and beauty products. With that knowledge, the majority of these people are looking to find an alternative to their daily routine products which are as chemical free as possible.
If this sounds like you and you enjoy both food and beauty then you are in for a treat. Below are some great ways you can use food items in your kitchen pantry to replace harmful beauty routine items.
There Is Nothing More Refreshing Than a Facial
Unfortunately, to achieve this level of freshness, most products employ a range of chemicals. However, if you have Greek yogurt in your refrigerator and honey in your pantry then you have everything you need to feel that same feeling, sans chemicals.
It’s as easy as mixing the two ingredients together until you arrive at a thick paste. Once the paste is ready, apply it to the skin on your face and on your neck. Let it sit for around 10 minutes, and then wash it off with warm water and a clean and dry towel. Once you are finished, be sure to discard what you used and enjoy what you didn’t as a nice snack to celebrate your new face!
Dry Hair is the worst! It’s unmanageable, looks unhealthy, and doesn’t feel so nice either. And while you may be accustomed to spending a lot of money on chemical laden products, you can treat your dry hair with some general flax oil. Pour a small amount into the palm of your hand, rub your hands together gently, and then pat it through your hair and your scalp. This will help to alleviate any dry spots and split ends.
When using this method, it’s important to remember that it should not be used every day, as this can lead to the opposite problem happening occurring, which is to have oily hair.
Of course, oily hair also comes with its fair share of challenges. Often looking limp and responsible for leaving stains on the new dress you recently bought from the Groupon Coupons page for Lakeside Collection. If this sounds like your type of hair, then around one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with around 8 ounces of water can make a fine shampoo or hair cleanse replacement to help remove oil and dirt buildup.
If you find the mixture to be either too light or heavy, adjust the measurements as you see fit until you find a mixture combination that works best for you. Similar to the tip above, be sure that you don’t employ this technique too often as it could remove too many natural oils, which your hair needs to stay healthy.
Just because you may not be accustomed to using the ingredients mentioned above outside of the kitchen, don’t discount their benefits. These items make for great ways in which people can make an easy switch to less harmful and chemical filled chemicals.
