I had a thought the other day. . . food products used for health and beauty. I started thinking how weird I was for using vinegar in my hair (it removes the build-up, but don't use it everyday becasue it promotes the natural oils and you'll end up with really oily hair). Then I thought about all of the other things that we use: oatmeal soaps, coconut butter lotion and even cucumber slices on our eyes (although no one can tell me what that's for). All of that is rather common and we're used to seeing those on grocery shelves.
My thoughts extended to the more obscure things I've used. Green tea with lemon in my hair, for instance, to give it blond streaks in the summer (lemon juice will lighten hair when exposed to sun). I did try it with raspberry tea to see if it would come out with red highlights; it didn't work too well and the effects come out with the next wash.
That led me to wonder: What do you, our dear readers, do? What are the secret food related things that you do for health and beauty? I'm interested to hear your tips and advice. Please leave a comment and let us know!
