Oatmeal contains beta-glucans which is a soluble fiber that creates a thin film on the surface of your skin. For an oatmeal skin treatment, place a handful of oatmeal in a washcloth and secure it with a rubber band and soak it in warm water. Squeeze the cloth into the water; once the water becomes cloudy splash it on your face and then air dry or pat your face gently with a cloth.

Eggs as a hair conditioner

Eggs contain high amount of protein and it's beneficial as a hair conditioner. Combine eggs, and two tablespoons of olive oil to your dry hair. Wrap hair with a hot towel for 10 minutes. Combine shampoo, work up a lather, rinse and condition. This helps the hair retain luster and resilience.

People have been using milk baths for generations. The lactic acid in milk gently exfoliates the skin, while the milk fat serves as a body moisturizer. Add a gallon of milk to your bath water and soak.
