Top 3 natural beauty products recommended by Source!
The middle of July means that we are already halfway through summer – but the good news is that half of it is still left to enjoy!
The sun is more generous with its warmth, reminding us to make sure to prepare our skin for that smooth summer tan. Here are 3 natural beauty products recommended by Source Lifestyle to help you to treat your hair and skin. The best thing is that you can find it all in your kitchen!
Lemon – it is widely known that the ‘morning ritual’ should start with a glass of warm lemon water – it helps to increase the body’s metabolic rate and maintain its pH balance. As well as for the inside, lemon is also good for your outside. Although it has been argued that acidic content eventually wears away the enamel on the teeth, you can still use lemon for teeth whitening. The next time you slice the lemons for your tea – save the rinds. Rub them regularly against your teeth, for a couple of minutes, and see the result in only a matter of days.
Avocado – a vegetable that recently caught the light of fame: from avocado salads and toasts to raw pies and ice cream – it is definitely one of the most popular new discoveries of the year. Rich in most abundant nutrients (vitamin K, C, E, B6, and potassium), it is loaded with powerful antioxidants and may help prevent cancer and lose weight. On top of that, avocado is extremely beneficial for skin care. Don’t be tempted to carelessly dispose of the peel – all the goodies are hidden in there. The inside of the avocado skin is a wonderful and mild exfoliant because of its unique texture. The flesh itself is rich in antioxidants, is anti-aging and works as a natural sunscreen, and reduces inflammation. Rub it in your skin, leave it for a few minutes and then wash it ff. Have a look in the mirror! You’re glowing.
Banana – the most popular fruit on this planet. The banana offers over 35 benefits of this universal fruit, from improving brain health, reducing fever, to promoting weight loss and to treat a hangover. Due to an incredible number of antioxidants and a nutrient called potassium, banana is used in masks, shampoos, body lotions, and other beauty products. A lesser-known fact is that it also significantly enhances hair health and appearance and is especially good for dry hair. A honey and banana mask humidifies and revives the hairs structure. For opposite results – mix mashed banana, some milk, and lemon – it will stabilize the sebaceous glands and absorb the excess fat. Make sure not to leave the mixture on the hair for too long! Recommended time 30 minutes.
