The sweater weather brings in new fashion trends, while outdoor activities only become more welcoming. However, the chilly season is not so great for the skin and hair. One tends to experience dry skin and flaky scalp. If ignored, these can cause severe skin irritation. Instead of investing in high-end skin and hair care products, head to your kitchen as these ingredients will surely help you.
Smooth Banana and Avocado: Bid goodbye to dull hair with the banana and avocado hair mask. Mash ripe bananas with two avocados and apply the mixture to your hair. Cover your head using a shower cap and leave it on for 30 minutes. Wash your hair using a mild shampoo and enjoy the well moisturized and nourished hair.
Papaya, Banana and Honey: Start by blending papaya and banana, add some honey to the mixture and apply it over your dry skin. The anti-aging ability of these fruits, when combined with the moisturizing ability of honey, helps rejuvenate your skin, making you look younger.
Milk and Almond: This is a great combination for the winter season. Mix one tablespoon of almond powder to two tablespoons of milk and apply to your face. Leave the mask on for about 10 minutes and then wash off by gently massaging with water. Almonds are rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids; milk acts as the ideal moisturiser for your skin. This mixture guarantees skin exfoliation and rejuvenation by skipping hurdles of dryness.
Lemon and Honey: Squeeze half a lemon and mix it well with honey. When the mixture is ready, use a cotton ball to apply it to your face. Leave it on for ten minutes and then rinse off with water. While the lemon is rich with vitamin C, the honey has anti-inflammatory properties which help soothe itchy and irritated skin.
Sunflower Oil: Apply the oil to your skin gently with your fingers and massage well. Let your skin absorb the oil and there won’t rise a need to wash it off, better yet, is if you apply it before sleeping. Sunflower oil is an emollient so hence, it contains multiple vitamins which help retain your skin’s moisture, especially during the winter.
Use these simple homemade remedies and stay away from any kind of critical illnesses by keeping your hair and skin healthy this winter.
