Glowing and Beautiful Complexion: Carrots and Cucumber
Both support the kidneys in flushing out excess uric acid (known to cause kidney stones), support the kidneys in flushing out excess toxins as well as load your body up with a mega dose of nutrients. The kidneys filter your blood, so if they’re taxed or unable to function at full capacity, this can show up in the form of skin issues like eczema or acne breakouts. Drink this combination of veggies for a cleansing effect on the kidneys, and the skin, resulting in a glowing, beautiful complexion.

Beauty Tips for Beauty & Healthy Hair
Four different masks for each type of hair that you can easily make in minutes using all-natural ingredients you probably have sitting in your refrigerator or cupboard right now!
1. DRY hair – Olive Oil and Egg
Combine three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil with two eggs and apply the mixture to your hair and let the mixture sit for 20 minutes before rinsing in the shower.
The olive oil will help hydrate brittle locks, while the protein in the eggs will promote healthy hair growth.
2. OILY hair — Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon
Combine 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar with the grated peel of an entire lemon and allow it to set for 15 minutes to absorb the excess oil from your scalp, and then rinse in the shower.
Apple cider vinegar will remove build up from styling products and conditioners and strengthen the hair shaft, leaving you with soft, shiny strands. It will also balance hair’s pH level, kill bacteria, and is a cure for dandruff.
3. DRY, flaky scalp hair — Banana, Honey and Almond oil
Mash together 1/2 a ripe banana and add two tablespoons of honey and a few drops of almond oil and allow it to set with a shower cap on for 20 minutes before rinsing.
Bananas can increase the moisture of your hair, smooth frizz and soothe your itchy scalp.
Choose the one that fits you better and bring your hair back to life!! There is no need to buy the priciest conditioners on the market to moisturize and revitalize your hair.
