5 Freaky Beauty Tricks For Hair, Skin & Health. I always love catching one of my girlies in some freaky beauty ritual. 1) because they look so appalled and embarrassed and 2) I always learn something new that works like a charm.
In no particular order, my 5 Favorite Freaky Beauty Tricks:
1. Lettuce & Spinach
Fight wrinkles and keep hair and nails healthy by fortifying your diet with lots of silicone-rich foods, suggests beauty nutritionist Paula Simpson. Smart buys include Romaine lettuce, spinach, cucumber, bell pepper, and tomatoes (including the skin).
2. Celery Seed
Start digging through your spice rack–Simpson identified celery seed as a natural diuretic to combat bloating. Try a simple tea recipe to reap the benefits: Pour one cup of boiling water over a teaspoon of crushed seeds, steep for 10 to 20 minutes, and sip.
Honey! It helps to heal and hydrate, plus the anti-viral properties make it good for healing cold sores, too.
An American College of Sports Medicine study found that consuming caffeine such as coffee, iced tea, or soda (diet!) can help increase physical performance during your workout.
