Latino Beauty Hacks from Abuelita’s Kitchen & Garden
As a young girl, growing up in a rural western town where there were no stores, and money was tight, I and my sisters relied primarily on family beauty recipes passed down from our mother, grandmother and aunts to help treat skin and hair issues.
My grandmother’s home in many ways was the perfect resource. Her kitchen cupboards were always stocked and her garden abundant. So I guess while most girls visited ULTA or Sephora, I shopped at my Abuelita’s kitchen and garden.
From a mayo hair mask, to a sugar and honey hair wax, I am pretty sure I have tried every Mexican natural beauty hack there is. And while I eventually grew up, moved to the city and made money, to this day, I still prefer some of the old-world beauty remedies the women in my family introduced me to as a young woman.
Which brings me to a new beauty series: Latino Beauty Hacks from Abuelita’s Kitchen & Garden, in which I’ll be sharing my family’s treasure trove of natural beauty recipes for you all to try.
Below is the first video blog of the series, complete with how to instructions for you to follow along.
