Home Remedies for a Tired Body
How did July zoom past so quickly? It must have been a busy month for most, with many deadlines to meet, accounts to close, and (online) events to prepare for. There just isn't enough days on the weekends!
To help you relax and unwind, here are some simple 2-step DIYs with fruits and ingredients you can easily find at home.
A natural skin wonder, strawberries contain salicylic acid that gently exfoliates and removes impurities to make your complexion smooth and bright.
Instructions: Puree 1/2 cup of ripe strawberries with 1/4 cup cornstarch, then apply to skin for 30 minutes and rinse off with cold water after.
Bananas soften your hair and protect its natural elasticity, while honey keeps it smooth and moisturised. Enjoy strong healthy locks that are protected from the effects of Singapore's climate!
Instructions: Blend 2 ripe bananas, 1/2 cup raw organic honey, and 1/2 cup olive oil until a pureed consistency. Apply from top of head to tips of the hair and cover it with a shower cap for 10 minutes before washing it away thoroughly.
Ahhh, a relaxing foot soak sounds absolutely delightful for tired feet after a busy week at work!
Instructions: Blend together 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 2 tbsp of olive oil, 1/4 cup of milk, 1/4 cup of water, and a little bit of cinnamon. Apply the mixture to your feet and soak them in water.
Remember, your body is also fuelled from inside out, so grab a bottle of FP juice for a weekly detox while you try out these DIYs.
Go on, you deserve it!
