Mayonnaise makes a good sandwich into a great sandwich. But did you know it can also make good hair into great hair? Or good skin into great skin? Well, it can. Mayonnaise, always hiding in the refrigerator, is a secret beauty weapon.
Mayonnaise has exceptional moisturizing properties, thanks to the oil and eggs it contains. This is good news for your skin, because that means mayonnaise lends itself to several moisturizing skin treatments. Try doing a gentle daily massage on your skin (be sure to rinse afterward) to boost skin’s moisture. Use mayonnaise as a moisturizing face cleanser by gently rubbing it onto facial skin, then rinsing with warm water. Also, banish dry skin on feet or elbows by applying mayo for 10 minutes, then wiping it away with a damp washcloth.
Mayonnaise’s moisturizing properties extend beyond your skin. Mayonnaise will give hair a healthy shine. Try conditioning your hair with mayo for a moisture-rich hair mask. Apply to hair, let it sit for 10 minutes, then rinse.
Want long, strong, healthy natural nails? Strengthen fingernails with mayonnaise by rubbing a little onto each nail. Let sit for 10 minutes, then rinse away.
After a little too much time in the sun, smooth on a little mayonnaise and feel the relief. Mayonnaise contains vinegar which helps relieve the burn. Plus, mayonnaise is cool from the fridge which also helps to cool a sunburn.
