Check out some natural beauty treatments you can whip up in your kitchen.
Avocado is a restorative fruit, perfect for protecting and balancing your hair and skin. It is often called the "ultimate beauty fruit" because it delivers nourishing natural oils and other benefits. The vitamin A in avocado adds sheen to hair, vitamin B balances oil production, whether your skin and hair are too oily or dry, and vitamin E protects and repairs sun and pollution damage.
You can simply mash up one or two avocados into a mud and apply to hair or skin; for a deluxe treatment, try adding:
1 tablespoon of warmed raw organic honey
1 tablespoon of organic mayonnaise or almond oil
Apply to face, body, and hair (cover hair with shower cap) and let sit for 15 minutes, then rinse well and shampoo if necessary.

Banana fudge hair/face/body antioxidant balms -- made from bananas and cocoa --are loaded with the mineral sulphur, which promotes healthy hair, skin and nails.

2 tablespoons macadamia nut oil or butter
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 spoonful organic brown sugar
A dash of cinnamon
