Kinder to the environment and your purse? That’s right, natural beauty is something to try this year. To help you get started here are the foods you could use in your beauty regime
Take a trip down any high street to natural food stores and you’ll find any number of natural beauty alternatives. Certain foods and oils as beauty products have long been known to leave with you with clearer skin and healthier hair but because they’re generally significantly cheaper than normal beauty items, your wallet will thank you too.
Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar can be used as a toner as it works to shrink spots, reduce pores and limits oil production. Mix it with water as it can be too strong on its own for your skin and if you do suffer from sensitive skin we would suggest you use it no more than three times a week!
Don’t throw away your used coffee grounds anymore! They’re the perfect alternative to exfoliating products and work well to remove any dead skin cells whilst reinvigorating your skin.
Brown sugar + coconut oil
Coconut oil was arguably the stand out natural beauty product of 2016, fixing practically all of our beauty complaints. Mix it with brown sugar to create the ultimate lip scrub. The brown sugar works as the exfoliator to remove the dead skin cells while the coconut oil provides the moisture your lips will need after being exfoliated. Plus, because the lips will have been exfoliated, they will absorb even more moisture than before.
Avocados + honey
Not only are avocados amazing for your insides, they’ll be your hair’s saviour in 2017. Because they’re a rich source of proteins, amino acids and vitamins they work to moisturise and sooth your scalp while also promoting hair growth. Mix it with honey, which helps to strengthen your scalp and helps your hair maintain moisture, to create a nourishing hair mask that your hair will love.
Strawberries have been recommended when it comes to an at-home teeth whitener thanks to its high levels of malic acid which serves as a natural enamel whitener.
Essential oils exploded onto the beauty market last year and you can pick them up very cheaply online. If you suffer from spots, try geranium oil as it regulates oil production and helps to reduce acne, while rose oil is perfect for those that suffer from dry skin as it helps to refine skin texture and moisturise. A myrrh essential oil is great for ageing skin thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties and while lavender is best known for its calming effects, it can also be used to help chapped skin and dandruff!
