If you want to look your best and know that you are doing so safely, then the following natural beauty tips should not be missed. The fact is that there is a world of incredible beauty products that can be created from the ingredients in your kitchen cupboards and your refrigerator. In addition to them being safer, you also have the benefit of saving a lot of money making them rather than purchasing those made by cosmetic companies.
Natural Beauty Tips–Facial Scrub
Making your own facial scrub to cleanse the pores is easy, inexpensive, and fabulous for your skin. A scrub should be somewhat rough in order to remove dead cells that stick to the dermis, making your skin look dull. Ingredients to use for your homemade scrub include:
- Honey or water
- Crushed almonds
- Granulated sugar
- Baking soda
The key is to use ingredients that are ideal for your skin type, and of course, those you are not allergic to. Then, it is a matter of mixing the rough ingredients with honey or water to make a paste. Wash with your natural paste, rinse and pat dry, and always follow up with a good moisturizer.
A Perfect Mask for Your Face
The easiest mask to cleanse the face, for cleaner and tighter pores is one made with an egg white. Simply separate egg and discard the yolk. Place the egg white into a small bowl and gently beat with a fork.
Add a few drops of vanilla extract and beat some more. Apply mixture to the face and leave on for about 15 minutes, rinsing with cool water afterward.
Natural Beauty Tips–Hair Mask
Your hair can undergo huge problems because of all the stress it is put under with commercial products, excessive heat, and the different styling tools used to give you a particular look. Whatever the problem, you’ll be able to fix it with food items turned into a natural hair mask that will moisturize and cleanse strands properly, as below:
Shampoo hair, wring out, comb, and apply prepared mask, leaving on for about 15-20 minutes. Rinse well with lukewarm water first, and then cooler water. Mask preparation for dry/damaged hair:
- Avocado, mashed. Use alone or in combination with other ingredients to restore shine.
- Banana, mashed. Use alone or in combination with other ingredients to prevent breakage and promote elasticity.
- Mayonnaise. Use alone or in combination with other banana or avocado to hydrate hair and restore its shine.
