These come from Natural Health Magazine--And here's what they recommend:
- If you don't feel like washing your hair but it looks greasy, get out the table salt. Salt absorbs oil, bacteria, and dead skin from your hair and scalp. Lean over the sink and massage a tablespoon of coarse salt into your scalp and through your hair. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then vigorously brush your hair to get it out.
- If you've got an unsightly pimple, break out the strawberries. They contain salicylic acid the same stuff you'll find in a lot of name brand pimple medications. They also contain a lot of vitamin C, which kills bacteria. So to get rid of your blemish, mash 5 to 7 strawberries and massage the paste onto your skin. Then rinse. Your pimple will soon recede.
- And to whiten your nails no need to visit the manicurist. Just cut a lemon in half, stick your fingernails in it, and swirl them around for about 3 minutes. The lemon juice acts like a mild bleach and will brighten your nails.
