Locks & Key
The Remedy For: Dry, over processed hair that looks lifeless
1 mashed, over ripe avocado
3 tablespoons almond oil
1 egg yolk
Is there anything the humble avocado can’t do? This nutrient packed veg is a goldmine of protein-rich oils, vitamins and moisturisers that help sink into rough, heat-fried hair and leave it looking as smooth as butter. Teamed with rich almond oil and shine-enhancing egg yolk it’s the most hipster-approved hair recipe you’ll ever come across. Apply a fresh mix onto just-shampooed hair, wash off with lukewarm water to avoid a scrambled egg mess and leave to air dry.
The Remedy For: Stubborn cellulite and water retention
500 grams brown sugar
250 grams ground coffee beans
2 table spoons cinnamon powder
300-400 grams coconut oil (depending on how thick you like your scrub)
Whip up a batch of this Starbucks-smelling scrub, place it in a sealed jar and keep it in permanently the shower. Not only will it help you maintain your tan thanks to the colour-sealing coconut oil but the energizing coffee beans and tingly cinnamon powder will help prevent those unsightly orange-peel dimples and reduce water retention in your upper thighs. Massage it well all over the body, concentrating on your hips; try your best to avoid licking it off your own hands and wash off with warm water.
Spot The Difference
The Remedy For: An angry red blemish that won’t go down
½ teaspoon rose water
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
These ying and yang ingredients attack stubborn spots from two angles. Mix together and dip a cotton bud into the solution, dabbing directly on the spot. The calming rose water quickly works to reduce redness and dilute smell of the vinegar whilst the acidity of the apple cider vinegar constricts the blood vessels, forcing the zit to shrink and expose the head. Best dabbed on before you go to bed, let the concoction work its magic over night and wake up to perfectly pimple-free skin.
