 THE BENEFITS OF STRAWBERRIES

Hey lovelies hope you are all well.

I LOVE strawberries especially dipped in chocolate, but I also love that strawberries can also be used within your beauty regime instead of just being a part of a diet. Strawberries are beneficial for many things from weight loss, skin, hair and teeth.

Strawberries are amazing to whiten your teeth…yes to whiten your teeth! The acid in the strawberry brightens, whitens and removes stains from your teeth. All you need to do is mash the strawberry up with a fork and dip your toothbrush into in and brush your teeth we the mashed strawberry..try doing this a twice a week you will start seeing results. Personally, I think this method of teeth whiten is so much more better then having them whitened with chemicals.

Strawberry Skin Scrub?…Why not try cutting up strawberries and rubbing them over your face to gently exfoliate your skin, strawberries are good to refresh and cleanse your skin as it consist of alpha-hydroxy acid. Leave the scrub on your face for a few minutes then rinse off you will find that your skin feels fresher and smoother.

If you are suffering with puffy eyes all you have to do is cut a few slices of strawberries and place them on your eyelids and under eyes sit back and relax for around 8-10mins after the time is up remove the slices and moisturise under your and around your eyes with a eye cream of your choice and you will notice the skin around your eyes will no longer look puffy and you will look really awake and hydrated.

Suffering with dry hair before you shampoo your hair why not chop up 6-8 strawberries and mix in well with a tablespoon of mayonnaise apply to dry hair ensuring that the mixture is applied equally and tie up and place a in shower cap. To ensure that the mixture works into the hair place a warm towel over the shower cap. Try and wait for a good ten minutes to ensure that the mixture works into the hair, once the time is up wash off with your normal routine. You will find that there will be improvement with your hair and it will feel a lot softer.

If you want to ensure that your skin is really soft and moisturised then I would recommend for you to mix in mashed strawberries with plain unsweetened yoghurt. once the mixture is blended together well you can apply it to your face just like a face mask and keep it on your face for 10mins. This face mask is so easy to make, keeps your skin soft and hydrated and is also amazing for oily skin.

It’s so amazing how one fruit can benefit you in so many ways strawberries are also recommended to be eaten when you want to lose weight as the acid within the strawberry burns fat and so this healthy and tasty option will help you to achieve many things.

Until next time.

THE BENEFITS OF COCONUT OIL

coconut-oil

Hey lovelies!

We all want good health, glowing skin and fabulous hair but to balance all three together can sometimes be difficult…but not any more:)

All you need is one product for all three areas, yes, one product and that’s coconut oil.

Coconut Oil consists of many benefits for your skin, hair and health.

For Glowing Skin…

If you want glowing skin then why not apply the coconut oil to your skin as your cream within your skincare regime? All you have to do is place the jar under warm running water to soften the oil up. Once you have cleansed your skin add the coconut oil to you face as your moisturiser. I normally use the coconut oil in my night time regime to ensure that the oil works into my skin through the night. You can also use the oil as a facial mask if you prefer not to use it as a facial cream. When applying it as a facial mask apply an even layer of the oil all around your face and leave on the skin for around 15-20mins….once the time is up wash it off with warm water and there you have it soft and glowing skin! 🙂

For Fabulous Hair…

Over the years I have damaged my hair from dying, curling and straightening it. My hair was so dry and damaged that it would no longer grow 😦 I tired so many hair products from hair masks, deep conditioners and hair creams, they did do some wonders to my hair but I still was not satisfied. I decided that I was going to use the coconut oil as a hair mask and I was amazed by the results.

How to use the coconut oil as a hair mask

  1. Add three table spoons of the coconut oil into a microwavable bowl
  2. Place the bowl into the microwave for 30 secs
  3. Mix the oil with a spoon and apply with fingers to dry hair
  4. Ensure that the product is evenly all over your hair from your scalp to your ends
  5. Massage the oil into your scalp
  6. Leave the oil in your hair for a good 30mins!!
  7. After 30mins wash it out with your normal shampoo and conditioner (if you want you can leave the oil in your hair overnight)
  8. Ensure that the oil is washed out of your hair so that your hair doesn’t become greasy
  9. And enjoy your soft and fabulous hair!

For health…

Yes..HEALTH…did you know that you can also cook with this oil?! Coconut oil benefits you in so many ways you can still cook your favourite dishes, however, instead of using your regular cooking oil why not use coconut oil. Coconut oil helps with diabetes, cholesterol and sugar cravings. It is so much more natural than cooking oils and even gives your dishes a better taste! You can still fry the same way as you were before, but this time with a much more healthier oil.

I mean how wonderful is this…it’s just goodness in a jar! One product benefits so many problems and you can find it anywhere!

And it’s cheap! 😀

Below I have linked Amazon where there are many different coconut oils they all do the same thing  just different brands and prices….I don’t really stick to one brand just grab any off the shelf that I see first as they all the same thing…you can find coconut oil in any supermarkets or your local grocery stores as well.

Let me know in the comments how you get along.

Until next time.
