Best Remedies For your skin & Hair

 Some of the best remedies are in your own refrigerator in the form of fruit. Read on for some great fruity beauty tips!
1. Banana Face Mask
Bananas have a lot of potassium, which is great for skin discolorations and smoothing out your skin! Simply mash up a banana and rub it onto your clean face. Allow to sit for 5-10 min, then wash off and see how your skin glows! Follow with moisturizer if desired.

2. Strawberry Tooth Whitener
Strawberries are full of salicic acid, which helps to whiten your teeth and fights acne. So here's a 2-in-1 for you: Mash up strawberries then spread them on your clean face and rub them all over your teeth. Allow to sit on face for 5 minutes then wash off. As for your teeth, its hard not to want to swallow them, so the best way to do it is put a lot of the strawberry pulp on your toothbrush, then vigorously brush your teeth for 2 or three minutes. Do this daily for a few weeks and you WILL see results!

 3. Avocado Hair Mask
Avocados are great for softening and conditioning your hair. Before you shower, mash up and avocado and apply it all over your hair. Wrap your hair in plastic wrap followed by a towel for 15 minutes. When you shower, wash your hair like you normally would, then be amazed by how shiny and soft it is!

4. Lemon Nail Strengthener
Do you have weak, brittle, yellowed nails? Here's your fast fix! Take a slice of lemon and rub it over your nails and cuticles once or twice weekly to strengthen your nails and bleach them back to white. Plus it has such a relaxing, fresh aroma you will feel energized instantly!

5. Peach Body Scrub
Peaches are great for gently exfoliating your skin. Take a peach, pit it and then mash it to as fine of a pulp as you can. Add a few tablespoons of sea salt, and enough olive or baby oil to make a paste. Scrub down all your dry scaly areas, then rinse off. Besides making your skin ultra soft, it smells divine as well!

6. Orange Body Spray
Make your own body spray! Squeeze and orange and strain the juice so it won't get caught in the spray bottle you use. Add¼ cup water, a teaspoon of vanilla and a little bit of rubbing alcohol (for staying power). Be sure and shake it well each time you use it. You'll be the lovely-scented attraction of the day!

 7. Citrus Hair Shine Spray
Want shiny, luscious-smelling tresses? Here's how to get them! Squeeze the juice from and orange, a lemon and a lime, then add a little bit of water and shake the mixture up. I sometimes add a drop of coconut flavor because it makes the scent smell so irresistible! Pour the mixture into a spray bottle and mist it over your hair for icy shine and such a sweet, fresh smell!
