The world has seen some pretty interesting ways in which humans have attempted to stay healthy and increase their beauty over the years. Whatever you can possibly think of, there’s a fairly strong chance that somebody has tried it somewhere in the world. This is actually what made us create this post in the first place, for we wanted to investigate some of the more weird and wacky ways that people are taking their health and beauty to new levels in 2020.
Right now, we believe that there are three rather interesting trends that have emerged, even if some of the ones we have listed have actually been used for a few years already. Believe us, if you haven’t tried these methods before, we would advise that you do your homework before expecting that anything miraculous will happen. But having said that, if these methods didn’t work, they wouldn’t be used by so many people!
Without further delay, let us get things started.
You have probably heard the hype over the last few years about CBD oil. As you might already know, CBD oil is a substance that is derived from the same plant that people tend to smoke in order to relax, whether legally or illegally from around the globe. That’s right, CBD oil is actually taken from the Marijuana plant, although it isn’t a substance that will give you any of the unwanted ‘high’ feelings. This is because the chemical of the plant that causes this reaction has actually been removed, therefore making it much safer for you to use.
Now, CBD oil is used for a whole range of reasons right now. Some people use it to help deal with the pain associated with ailments such as arthritis, some use it for depression and anxiety, and some even use it to help with diabetes. There are a whole range of benefits to using this oil, and it would seem that the world is only now waking up to the benefits that this oil can bring.
You can purchase CBD oil over the counter in many specialist health stores from around the globe, and there’s a fair chance that there will be one in your local town or city. It is relatively inexpensive, and for the potential benefits it can bring, it is worth a shot.
Charcoal for teeth whitening
This is something that has been widely accepted by people seeking that ‘Hollywood smile’ on a budget. With that said, there are also people out there that think it is just ridiculous to charcoal on their teeth. Having looked through pages of research, not to mention the growing popularity of this trend for overall beauty, we definitely wanted to include it in this post. This is seen by the growing acceptance among the professional dentistry community, as well as the number of products that have emerged recently for this reason.
You are probably still wondering what actual benefits are of using this strategy, so allow us to explain. There are numerous reports that using charcoal on your teeth can help to remove stains caused by products such as coffee and tea, and there is also evidence to suggest that it can help to remove stubborn plaque. Of course, plaque can ultimately lead to gum disease and tooth loss, so this would come in handy for many people.
Some people even use charcoal paste on their skin too, in an effort to make it glowing and smooth, so this might be something that you could also try.
Coconut oil on hair
This one is probably the oldest of all the health and beauty tips that we have discussed in this post, but it isn’t for everyone. First and foremost, if you apply coconut oil to your hair, it can be an awfully long time before that distinct scent starts to disappear. Of course, if you like the smell of coconuts, then this is likely a positive thing for you.
Many people choose to put coconut oil on their hair at night, and as it was mentioned in men`s magazine MenzNow men even use it for their beards too. The thoughts behind using coconut oil are that it helps to rehydrate hair, giving it a nice glow and making it look healthy. But it also helps to strengthen hair that is either damaged or falling out too!
To give any of these ideas a try, just head down your local store and you should be able to find most of these products available!
