1) honey

To “energize” the skin a bit, just apply a mixture of liquid honey and lemon juice to the face for a few minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water. To hydrate the skin, replace lemon juice with mashed bananas.

2) Sugar

Prepare reserves of exfoliants without further delay. The simple version? Just add sugar to your favorite moisturizer. I also suggest you try the classic Brown Sugar + Grapefruit Juice, which promises delicious aromas.

3) Chamomile

Goodbye puffy eyes! Apply an infusion of cooled chamomile to the eyes for 15 minutes, to regain a lively look and thus attract compliments.

4) lawyer

Mix the flesh of a ripe avocado with an egg yolk and a teaspoon of olive oil. Apply to hair, massage in and leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse and wash with your usual hair products. Optimal hydration!

Healthy glow guaranteed, using yogurt as a face mask. All you have to do is put grated cucumber and parsley in the blender, add the yogurt ... and enjoy the freshness of this minute mask.
