Instant Papaya Facial
When I am cutting up a papaya for my morning smoothie I take the flesh side of skin and rub it all over my face. The enzymes revitalize your face by breaking down dead skin cells. This works best when the papaya is still slightly firm. Just remember to wipe the papaya pulp off before you leave the house!
Coconut & Vinegar Hair Care
To wash my hair once a week, I like to massage coconut oil into my scalp and through my hair the night before and braid it up, sleep with a towel over the pillow and then in the morning shampoo it out and instead of conditioner pour some apple cider through my hair and then rinse the vinegar out (I’ve also used sour home-made kombucha one time when I had run out of vinegar) This hair treatment is so inexpensive and you probably already have coconut oil and vinegar in your pantry anyways. The coconut oil conditions your hair and its anti fugal and anti microbial properties mean that you’ll never get dandruff. Rinsing your hair with vinegar sounds a bit weird, but trust me it leaves your hair so incredibly soft.
