2. Clay

Natural clay like bentonite, which is composed of ashes, works like a sponge when turned on with water to absorb contaminants from the skin. In addition to using clay on the skin to soothe inflammation and acne, the alkalizing impacts on the body likewise make bentonite an excellent internal clean. It's important to save clay in glass and blend with a plastic utensil, as contact with metal will certainly reduce its efficiency.

3. Honey

The natural antiseptic properties of raw honey are best for skin and hair treatments that remove breakouts and keep the scalp bacteria free. As a rich emollient, honey produces wetness for homemade appeal treatments. To boost store-bought hair conditioner, include a couple of tablespoons of honey to the bottle and mix completely.

Rich in vitamin C, lemons exfoliate the skin and promote the turnover of dead skin cells, revealing soft, radiant skin. A natural brightener for skin and hair, lemons are great for discoloration and scarring caused by blemishes and can work as hair highlights.

Get the most from your fresh lemons and save used rinds in the fridge for an evening facial mask. Take half of a rind and squeeze a little honey in the center, then massage onto the face, avoiding the eyes. Let rest for 15 minutes and rinse off.
