Your Shopping List
1. Janice Cox’s Basic Oatmeal Mask
Mix together ½ cup cooked oatmeal, one whole egg, and one tablespoon of almond oil. Spread it on your face and leave for 15 minutes. (A berry garnish is optional.)
2. Avocado As Moisturizer
Lather avocado on dry, sun-exposed skin for a rush of moisture—make sure that your avocado fruit is fully ripe. We know some people who use the inside of the avocado skin for its moisturizing oils. To do so, rub the inner layers of the avocado peel against your face, leave on for 15 minutes, and then rinse off with warm water and pat dry.
3. The Case For Vinegar
Van Zandbergen says that occasionally rinsing hair with vinegar is a great way to add shine. It’s also an ideal pedicure ingredient, Cox added, since its acidity zaps dead skin.
4. Homemade Hair Conditioner
Pioneer Thinking ame up with this recipe for hair conditioner: Beat an egg yolk until it’s frothy, add one teaspoon of baby oil, and one cup of water. Massage through scalp and rinse.
5. Avocado-Based Hair Conditioner
Craving guacamole? Try this conditioner instead: Mix one mashed avocado with coconut milk until thick. Comb through hair, leave on for 15 minutes, and rinse.
6. Creamy Honey Conditioner
Mix honey, mayonnaise, and egg together for a nourishing hair condition…and a heck of a potato salad base.
