Hello ladies! I told you I’d be back and to be honest, I feel like typing up two posts today, but that may be too much? Maybe I will type two and leave one to post tomorrow…Yeah, that sounds good to me. Anyways, since we are in a new year I thought it would be pretty cool to update the website layout a bit. Mostly just with colors and a new header. BUT STILL. I am trying to make the website reflect my personality and what SimplyTaylorRae is about! So I am excited, in case you can’t tell.
Moving on…today we are going to talk about avocado beauty recipes! I love avocados to eat especially with potato skins and tacos. But they are considered a super food because of ALL the wonderful benefits that come from eating and using. So, let me show you some beauty recipes that will benefit your skin AND your hair!
Let’s start off with why avocados are such a super food to eat and use for health and beauty. Avocados contain vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, and K. It is also high in minerals such as phospherous, potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc, and manganese. Lastly, it a great way to get protein, dietary fiber, and phytonutrients. The vitamins fight against free radicals that age your skin, avocados are commonly used a moisturizers and helps fight and prevent acne as well as sun damage, they can help with eczema, and is great for silky and soft hair~!
For those who don’t know, I absolutely adore Beautylish.Com. They have so many tutorials and beauty recipes and reviews and it’s like heaven for me. I highly recommend the website for make up tutorials! Moving on, they have a few beauty recipes that are sure to help your skin and hair feel fan-freakin’-tastic!
