Fruit peel: One of my favorites is to exfoliate with a fruit mask. To make a fruit mask, mix a small amount of apples, oranges, strawberries, and grapes in a blender or food processor--about 1/2 cup of each. Clean your face and apply a thin coat of honey and the fruit mixture. Allow the mixture to set for 12 to 15 minutes and rinse. This natural mask is good for all skin types and will leave your skin glowing. ...Read more

Dry scalp? Shampoos and conditioners don't help, even dry after salon visit? Possible cause: dehydration?

Dry scalp? Shampoos and conditioners don't help, even dry after salon visit? Possible cause: dehydration?

Doubt it!: I'm assuming your dry scalp is manifesting as dandruff. This is usually not due to any dehydration but is due to excess oil (sebum) production. You will need to use special medicated shampoo to control and avoid saturated or trans fats which can worsen things. Some people use tea tree oil which can help. It doesn't hurt to stay hydrated but that alone is unlikely to fix everything. ...Read more
