Don't Eat It, Use It!

Lemon zest boosts mood
Aromatherapy research suggests that the scent of lemon
oil can lift spirits. Add lemon zest to iced tea: inhale the aroma.
Vinegar soothes sunburn
Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar to treat fried skin,
says Bonnie McMillen, a nurse at the University of Pittsburgh
at Bradford.
Yogurt repairs skin
Use plain Greek yogurt as a mask: The live bacteria remove toxins,
and the acidity balances the pH of the skin, says Dharma Singh
Khalsa, MD.
Chamomile tea reduces irritation
Dip a washcloth in a strong iced brew and press onto skin to
help relieve inflammation, suggests Valori Treloar, MD.
