Chemicals can be horrible for your hair, skin, nails and the environment. That's why instead of perusing the beauty aisle, you should head to your kitchen.

The chemicals found in beauty products can be toxic to your hair, skin nails and the environment. That's why instead of perusing the beauty aisle, you should head straight to your kitchen.

Let's start with hair. Perhaps you have very dry hair? If you want a deep conditioner that will revitalize and hydrate your hair try mashing an avocado and stirring in a squeeze of honey and half of a cup of avocado oil. Allow the mixture to penetrate your hair for twenty minutes and then rinse with cold water to lock in the moisture.

And what about your skin? If you're looking for a hearty exfoliate that will leave your skin moisturized and healthy try mixing half a lemon with two cups of honey and brown sugar. You can add an essential oil like lavender to the mixture and then stir it all together. Rub the mixture gently on your skin and then rinse. The sugars exfoliate the skin.
