Aloe vera for pores
To remove dry, dead skin that clogs pores, use this toner before bedtime twice a week. The red tea is rich in zinc and alpha hydroxy acids, which help dissolve the top layer of dead skin cells, and the aloe vera juice restores moisture.
½ cup distilled water
1 Tbsp rooibos tea (red tea)
1 Tbsp aloe vera juice
2 Tbsp rosewater
Brew a cup of red tea and let steep for 20 minutes before removing the bag and placing in the fridge to cool. Then pour the aloe vera juice and rosewater into a bottle, top off with the chilled tea, close cap and shake well. Swipe on skin with a cotton pad. The mixture will last up to a month in your medicine cabinet.
Boost your hair hydration with banana and honey
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Mash the banana until smooth, then blend in the honey and vinegar. Apply to clean, damp hair and let sit for 15 minutes before rinsing. Follow up with an application of your daily conditioner for extra TLC.
In a bowl, mix ½ avocado, ½ cup of plain yogurt and ¼ cup of honey until completely blended. Then apply evenly to your face and leave on for 10 minutes. Use a washcloth to gently wipe off, then rinse with water and follow with your regular moisturizer.
Baking soda as facial scrub
Make a thin paste with 4 tsp baking soda and 1 Tbsp water, let it sit for 2 minutes, then apply it in small, circular motions to your moistened face (avoiding the eye area) and neck. After 3 minutes, rinse clean with warm water and then follow up with a splash of cold water to close your pores. Finish with a dollop of your regular daily moisturizer. “Dry or sensitive skin types should only use this mask every other week,” says Cox. “Those with normal to oily skin can repeat the process weekly.
