Going natural is always the best option in terms of both external application and consumption as it is free of any synthetic chemicals and is full of goodness minus the side effects!! The best part? Some natural products works well individually too and I have made a list of such 1 ingredient beauty products:
Olive oil is the simplest, purest moisturizer in the world. It can be used anywhere on your body, including the extra dry spots like your elbows, knees and feet. It is also an excellent facial moisturizer. Keep in mind that very little olive oil is needed. If you use too much, your skin will end up feeling greasy!
The inside of the avocado skin that sits closest to the skin’s edge is full of rich nutrients and is the perfect choice for an anti-wrinkle eye treatment. Just mash it and apply to the orbital rim for 10-15 minutes. This ingredient can also work double duty as a scalp mask as well!
Milk makes an excellent skin nourisher and de-tanner! If your facial skin feels stretchy, just massage cold milk for a minute and you will be amazed at the results. If applied overnight, it also helps you get rid of recent tan!
Just two teaspoons of this wonder ingredient on your problem areas and use dry hands to drag the honey back and forth repeatedly. This 5-10 minute massage with increasing pressure will help force circulation to the area, bringing nutrients and oxygen with it. Honey is a great moisturizer and is a mild bleacher.
Aloe vera can be used to treat dandruff, sooth sunburn, fight acne, hair growth etc. Just scoop out the gel and use it accordingly.
Coconut oil is a great moisturizer, for both skin and hair! It also has antimicrobial activities and can help or prevent various skin problems. Coconut oil can also be used to remove makeup.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
Apple cider can be used for soft shiny hair – Simply spray Apple Cider Vinegar onto your scalp before washing your hair. Your hair may be wet or dry. Leave the vinegar on the scalp while you take a shower (approx. 5 minutes) and then rinse it out. Wash your hair as normal. You can also use this as a conditioner if you don’t use shampoo. Apple cider vinegar can also be used to cure various vaginal infections due to its acidic nature.
Lemon can be used to lighten dark skin patches. Cut a lemon in half and massage it onto each elbow/underarms/knees once a day. Dry with towel and apply olive oil to moisturize. You will see fast results with this.
Is there any other 1 ingredient product that you use?
