Beets truly are a versatile vegetable. From cooking to beauty recipes, beets have got it all. Even Hippocrates viewed beets as a medicinal plant. Throughout centuries beets were used to treat many diseases. Beets not only provide your body with important nutrients and stimulate your metabolism but also saturate the body with powerful antioxidants.
In my family, beets have been a part of our lives since childhood. We use beets in soups, salads, for canning, etc. Throughout the centuries our great-great-grandmothers used beets to improve their complexion ( rubbing their cheeks with slices of fresh beets). It really works well as a natural blush… providing natural skin radiance. Beet facial masks are not well known. I hope these amazing uses for beets will make you love this vegetable even more.
Bananas can be found in nearly every kitchen. There are many practical uses for bananas. In Latin banana means “fruit of the wise man”. The banana tree is also refereed to as a “Paradise tree” because they are a perfect delicacy… nice and smooth, which, come in a convenient and original package ready to be used. (This machine makes wonderful banana based ‘ice cream’ effortlessly – here.) A ripe banana is the most nutritional snack that you can eat on the run. But Bananas are not just a tasty snack they are also very useful. You can use bananas for practical applications around the house.
Make your own natural and effective chocolate mask with this easy chocolate mask recipe. Chocolate, being one of the most irresistible delicacies on earth, can also revolutionize your skin! Due to the unbelievable antioxidant and nutritious properties of cacao, the mask can effectively prevent premature aging and make your skin truly radiant. Raw cacao (I recommend this one – here) beans contain more than 320 various antioxidants. No other product in the world can be compared to it. These antioxidants fight free radicals in our body and protect against viral and bacterial infections.
Papaya has been used for skin care since ancient times. This delicious tropical fruit is known for its ability to create radiant skin. This sweet fruit is beneficial not only when consumed, but also when used externally. Papaya restores luster to the skin and can improve the tone (especially on the face and neck). If your skin has became dull and lifeless, you can make natural facial masks with papaya at home. Natural substances contained in this fruit are very beneficial for the skin (such as enzymes, which treat skin irritation and/or sunburn). Most of all, papaya helps fight free radicals that cause aging and wrinkles.
Having beautiful, blemish free skin is greatly coveted by all women. In today’s world of fancy magazines with airbrushed models whose skin is sheer perfection, we cannot help but to want to be like them. For magazine models, airbrushing does an effective job of making them look perfect, but the truth is, your skin can also look perfect naturally if you just take care of yourself from the inside out. No magic cream can radically transform your outside look if your body is polluted from the inside.
In my family, beets have been a part of our lives since childhood. We use beets in soups, salads, for canning, etc. However, believe it or not, beets even have a much larger range of applications. Throughout the centuries our great-great-grandmothers used beets to improve their complexion ( rubbing their cheeks with slices of fresh beets). It really works well as a natural blush… providing natural skin radiance. Beet facial masks are not well known.
I believe that most women dream of plump voluptuous lips. Our society is obsessed with outward beauty and it sets certain standards to strife for. Angelina Jolie’s or Scarlett Johansson’s lips seems to be the standard for perfect lips. Most women think the bigger, the better. They resort to dangerous procedures to achieve the goal. Honestly, there is nothing more unattractive than surgically enhanced lips. Truth be told, you can tell when women unnaturally make their lips bigger. Fortunately, you can achieve bigger lips via natural methods. Granted, the results won’t be as imminent as surgeries offer but your health won’t be compromised and you will still get fuller, naturally looking lips.
Did you know that in many cultures of the world, women’s lips are associated with a sign of fertility. It says that the more estrogen you have, the larger your lips are. It makes sense logically since our lips tend to shrink with age as our estrogen levels go down.
Ridiculously easy, but a very effective way to make your lips look bigger naturally
The simplest natural way to get bigger lips is to do a morning massage.
It is ridiculously easy but it actually works. Apply a little honey onto your lips and massage your lips in the morning with a soft toothbrush for about one minute. You can also use contrasting compresses. You will need both ice and warm water. First, apply the ice to your lips and then the hot water (you can pour it into your hands or use a washcloth soaked in how water). Then, ( the most important step) gently bite on your lips (for a minute or two). Repeat the procedure two more times. This causes blood to actively circulate inside of your lips, which in turn, makes them swell. Women who’ve tried this method say that the effect becomes visible after a few days!
Another effective method only requires one ingredient – clove oil. Just like the cinnamon, it gives your lips a slight irritation. Just apply some clove oil to your lips and your lips will look bigger and plumper! Clove oil is slightly strong, so you can mix a drop of clove oil with a little bit of honey. Let the oil set in for a minute or two and then rinse off with cold water. Clove Bud Essential Oil. 10 ml. 100% Pure, Undiluted, Therapeutic Grade.

The deep orange, tomato shaped fruit with a waxy texture, persimmon, has been a favorite of mine sine I can remember. As a child, there was nothing more exciting than biting into this delicious fruit. Unfortunately, many people are afraid of this “foreign” fruit with an astringent taste. Is that you? Have you ever given it a try? Besides the beneficial properties of persimmon and the amazing effect it has on the human body, the fruit has many unique uses from cooking and natural remedies, to skin care.
As unbelievable as it may sound, baltic amber is truly the untapped natural remedy for many diseases. I believe most women own this incredible yet long forgotten item. Some of you may have put it away just because it isn’t trendy any more. Yes, amber accessories tend to look bulky and maybe not current, however, I recommend you dig it out and start wearing it again. Why? Amber is incredibly beneficial for your health. All you need to do is just wear it. (Find it here)
Women dream of long, beautiful and voluminous eyelashes. We constantly search for new and improved mascaras. It seems like every year beauty companies promise us a mascara that will make our eyelashes so much longer and fuller. SO by now we should’ve definitely achieved the desired goal. But here is the truth, your eyelashes cannot be longer than thirty percent of the original length. So, if these companies promise you double the length, don’t believe them. If you want to double the length, you will need to resort to artificial eyelashes. Plus, the commercial mascaras and creams that claim to grow longer eyelashes are full of toxins. Fortunately, you can get long, voluminous lashes naturally at home.
