Natural Body Tanner
What You Need:
- 1/4 cup fine (additive-free) henna powder (avoid any with dyes)
- Warm water
- 1 heaping tablespoon active live yogurt
What to Do:
Add warm water to the henna powder 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing thoroughly until you achieve a paste-like consistency (shouldn't be runny). Then, mix the active live yogurt into it to form a smooth paste. Immediately to follow (and in the shower), apply the concoction to your wet body using gloves (being careful not to stain your hair). Leave it on for approximately 5 minutes, then rinse off to reveal a nice glow.
Why It's Great:
"Henna, in its purest form, is a prized ingredient in the Middle East and is utilized in many ways, and the Moroccan version will leave you with a color that's more bronze than, unlike some other solutions, orange or red," said Dr. Lamees Hamdan, Founder of Shiffa Dubai Skin Care.
