When mainly use mayonnaise on our food because it tastes good. But it can also be very beneficial for our skin.
It has vitamins E and K, protein and omega-3 fatty acids, all of which are great for the hair, skin and nails. Here are some of the beauty benefits I’ll be sharing with you about mayonnaise.
For treating sunburn
Mayonnaise can help in treating sunburn. All you need is a small amount.Rub it on the sunburned surface. Wait fifteen to twenty minutes before rinsing with cold water. It should provide immediate soothing relief to the affected area. It will also hydrate the skin and keep it that way.
For getting rid of head lice
Lice are an annoyance. They make your head itchy. Fortunately, mayonnaise can be used to remedy this.
Before going to sleep at night, cover your entire scalp with mayonnaise. Wear a shower cap. After eight to nine hours (when you wake up in the morning), rinse your hair and use mild shampoo. Use a wide tooth comb to take out the dead lice that suffocated because of the mayonnaise.
Repeat the procedure after ten days if you experience more lice.
For conditioning your hair
Mayonnaise has the good elements from eggs, vinegar and oil which means it’s great for your hair.
Do the same procedure we discussed about killing head lice. This time, try mixing in olive oil and honey. It will moisturize your scalp and nourish and hydrate the dried ends. It will also bring back the natural shine and softness to your hair.
For hydrating and removing dead skin
You can either try adding mayonnaise to your facial pack, or applying it on its own since it hydrates and moisturizes excellently.
Just apply mayonnaise thickly and wait twenty to twenty-five minutes. The vinegar in it will eliminate dead skin cells and exfoliate your skin.
The egg and oil in mayonnaise are great for dry and flaky skin.
