Milk & Honey Bath

Lactic acid, found in milk, is a natural skin-softener, said Darrell McCurtain, a therapist at the Golden Door Spa. If filling an entire tub feels too indulgent, try using a small basin to soak feet or hands, or add a few cups to your bath water. Throw in a few teaspoons of honey to capture its anti-bacterial effect.

We cheered the news that red wine is good for our health, and McCurtain told us it's fab for your skin, too! "The antioxidants and polyphenols found in wine are good for softening skin, and they're easily absorbed through through it as well." Similar to the milk bath, fill your whole tub if you're feeling luxe (or lush), or try in smaller doses like a foot or hand soak.

Curly-haired ladies should borrow a (clean!) pair of their man's boxers to dry their locks, since a towel's fibers can actually increase frizziness. Simple cotton is far less agitating.

Lettuce & Spinach  
Fight wrinkles and keep hair and nails healthy by fortifying your diet with lots of silicone-rich foods, Smart buys include Romaine lettuce, spinach, cucumber, bell pepper, and tomatoes (including the skin).


Lemon juice combined with tea is an easy fix for oily hair. "The lemon works as a great astringent but doesn't ruin the pH balance of the hair and scalp. Do half lemon juice, half black tea and rinse through clean hair.
