For healthy and shiny hair
Could our hair get shinier using beer? After washing your hair, apply some just before styling – hold and shine guaranteed! In addition, the smell is not discernible. You will not see beer in the same way ever again…
Not keen on beer? Adopt for clear vinegar. Simply mix 1 dose of vinegar to 5 of water, and apply this mixture to the hair after washing – this is a leave-in formula so perfect for spritzing on post-conditioner.
To prevent split ends, olive oil could just be our best ally. Apply a little on the tips and leave 30 minutes before washing out…this will give it all the hydration it needs with minimum effort.
For a radiant complexion
Eyes a little swollen? Tea bags will put an end to it! At breakfast after the crazy night on the dance floor, forget about throwing away your black tea bag and put it on your eyes instead.

She used donkey milk for this purpose, and her 21st century version consists of normal milk, but with a high proportion of fat (1 litre of 3.5% for a bath). The cream contained in the milk is nourishing and soothes sensitive skin, and milk enzymes will support cell renewal.
