Natural Approaches to Summer Beauty

Feed: Salmon (loaded with omega-3 fatty acids) supports scalp health. Spinach, broccoli and Swiss chard (with vitamins A and C) all keep hair conditioned. Skim milk and yogurt (calcium galore) add shine.

Nails

First rule of (ahem) thumb: Cuticles protect against fungus and bacteria. Instead of pushing them back and exposing yourself to possible infection, rub a little olive oil into nail beds to moisturize the cuticles and the nail.

Soak: Hands soften in buttermilk or organic apple cider. Feet like Epsom salt and warm water. Try adding orange peel or rosemary sprigs and a few marbles to your foot soak. Rub your toes and soles over the rounded surfaces to work out kinks.

Scrub: Smooth hands with a mixture of 2 eggs whipped with 1 tablespoon honey and a ¼ cup of almond meal. Invigorate feet by mixing 3 tablespoons finely ground coffee, 1 teaspoon cornmeal and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Add 1 tablespoon of whipping cream, 1 tablespoon of flour and a few drops of essential oil. Watch the mixture eat up dead skin!
