Kitchen Beauty Treatments!

Banana Shave Cream - mash up a banana, add a splash of water, and mix together (high natural oil content along w. the vitamins and minerals present)

Sugar Exfoliant - mix some brown or white sugar with a splash of olive oil, and rub this mixture on your skin

Avocado Face Mask - mix a mashed avocado with a spoonful of yogurt and honey (relieves redness and irritation)

Potato Skin Brightener - mix grated raw potato with loose leaf tea in a 1:1 ratio, add in a spoonful or two of olive oil and massage onto your face or body (moisturizer and exfoliator to leave you w. a natural brightness)

Coconut Oil - massage a few small handfuls of the oil into your hair from the roots to the ends, leave for a few minutes to dry, and either braid your hair or put it up for the night, followed by a normal wash and condition the next morning (the oil won't stain your pillow, and will act as a hair growth treatment/shine inducer)

Strawberry Teeth Whitener - mix a crushed strawberry with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, apply to your teeth with a toothbrush, let rest for 5 minutes, and then brush your teeth (repeat once per week)

Milk Foot Bath - soak aching or cracked feet in a cold bucket of milk (add ice when the milk starts to warm)
