If you spend more than a thousand dollars on skin care and beauty products, you are not alone. There is a reason why the beauty industry has grown into a multi-billion market. But here’s a surprise, you don’t have to spend so much money on beauty products at all. Your kitchen is a treasure trove of amazing skin care and beauty products! In today’s post, we are giving you amazing beauty tricks and tips hidden in your pantry:
Face Mask and Scrubs to Restore Glow
Why buy a fancy tub of face mask and tub when you have oatmeal, honey, gram flour and olive oil in the kitchen? You can simply mix honey, yogurt and oatmeal for a hydrating mask or gram flour, olive oil and honey for a luxurious face scrub! Either way, you get fabulously soft, even skin using these simple ingredients you can find in the kitchen!
Night Moisturizers to Fight Aging
Got extra virgin coconut or olive oil in the pantry? These oils make the best moisturizers! They contain natural fats that plump up the skin and refine the skin texture. Plant-based raw oil also protects the skin from premature aging and photo damage.
To use extra virgin coconut or olive oil as a moisturizer, add three drops of the oil on clean palm. Rub the palms together to warm up the oil. Then, gently pat on freshly cleansed face and neck. You will wake up to amazingly soft, supple skin in the morning! Because extra virgin coconut or olive oil are heavier than your average creams, we recommend using them at night only.
Mild, Effective Makeup Removers
Most commercial makeup removers strip the skin of its natural moisture. But if you have coconut or extra virgin olive oil, you can use these amazing plant-based oils as a soothing makeup remover. Unlike commercial makeup removers, extra virgin olive oil and virgin coconut oil melt even the most stubborn makeup. It quickly removes waterproof mascara, eye shadow and foundation with ease. Even better, the skin is left soft and moisturized each time you use these natural oils.
Extra virgin olive and virgin coconut oil contain essential fatty acids that plump up the skin. These oils protect from premature aging, dryness, and sagginess. They hydrate deep within the skin layers to restore vitality and glow! And you didn’t have to spend a hundred dollars for a makeup remover!
Chemical Peels from Fruit Extracts
Do you suffer from dry, blotchy, uneven skin? Is your skin dull and ridden with age spots and old acne scars? You don’t have to get a chemical peel to fade out these unsightly blemishes! Citrus fruit extracts work just as well as any chemical peel. Lemon, lime, calamansi, grapefruit and orange extracts contain mild fruit acids that melt dead skin cells, fade scars, and blemishes. These fruit extracts work well to even out skin and restore luminosity too!
To use lemon, lime or orange juice as a chemical peel simply apply about half a teaspoon of fruit extract on freshly cleansed face. Leave the extract on for at least 10 minutes then rinse with tepid water. The fruit extract will make the skin extra sensitive to the sun so don’t head out without applying sunscreen. Apply the fruit extract twice per week for best results.
