Pasta makes you beautiful: tips and curiosities about the beauty side of pasta

Pasta is good for your health and for the planet. Here are some useful tips for not wasting pasta cooking water and incorporating it into your beauty routine


Good for a relaxing footbath -Pasta is good for your health and can also be a precious ally for your beauty. Don't you believe it? The pasta cooking water, for example, can be used to make a relaxing footbath because the starch contained in the cooking water has an anti-inflammatory and moisturizing action. To prepare the footbath, simply pour the lukewarm pasta cooking water into a basin where you can add coarse salt and a few drops of essential oil. And just relax ...


... and for a face mask -The pasta cooking water can also be used to make some face masks at home: let the pasta water cool, pour a small amount into a small bowl where you will add oatmeal or chickpeas. Mix well and finally add a few drops of your favorite essential oil: your exfoliating face mask is ready to use!


Good for vegetables - You can re-use the pasta cooking water for other uses in the kitchen, for example to wash dishes or to cook vegetables.



Enjoy pasta!
