Look Beautiful With Home Ingredients!

Everyone wants to look good, and for this many people spend hundreds of dollars on expensive beauty products and treatments.

These treatments and products definitely help you look good, but did you know that you can get healthy and glowing skin and beautiful hair by using easy home-made beauty recipes?

Almost all the ingredients used in these recipes are already present in your home. Here we go!

Deep Cleanser

  • 3-4 tbsp warm milk

Dip cotton balls in warm milk and clean your face with it. Warm milk acts as a deep cleansing agent.

Glowing Skin

Honey is a natural moisturizer and conditioner. It can be used in many ways to enhance your beauty.
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • A few lemon drops

Take the honey and add few drops of lemon to it. Apply the mixture on your face, neck and hands. Leave it for 10 to 15 minutes and then wash it off. Repeat the procedure twice weekly.

Face Mask

Oats are as helpful to your beauty as they are healthy. You can use oatmeal to make a great home-made face mask. Here is the recipe:

  • 1/4 ripe banana
  • 2 tbsp instant oats
  • 1 tbsp soy milk or almond oil
  • a pinch of ground cinnamon (or nutmeg)

With the help of a fork, mash the banana in a bowl, and mix all the other ingredients in it. Mix well. Apply the mask on your face (do not apply the mixture around eyes). Leave it to dry for 10 to 15 minutes and then wash it with lukewarm water.

Reduce Puffy Eyes

Cucumbers and tea bags have long been used to reduce puffiness, but what makes them so special? It's a combination of the cold, which reduces swelling, and the antioxident properties in both. These work just as good as eye cream for dark circles, but without the expense.

Tea bags: Use two tea bags to make tea (chamomile or green tea). Drain, place the bag in a freezer bag and place in the freezer for twenty minutes, or until chilled. Remove from freezer and bag, and place on your eyes for ten minutes.

Cucumbers: From the fridge, slice cold cucumber. Place on your eyes for ten minutes, until warm.

Body Scrub

In this home-made body scrub you use lemon, which is a natural bleaching agent. Honey acts as a moisturizer, the salt and sugar as an exfoilant, and the oil used in this scrub will give you soft and radiant skin.

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup sea salt
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive or coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp essential oil (lavender or jasmine)

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl to make a paste. Apply the mixture on your skin using your finger tips. Move you fingers gently in a circular motion to remove the dead skin cells. Afterward, wash your skin with water.

Hair Mask

  • Egg 1
  • Olive oil 1 tbsp
  • 1/4 cucumber, peeled and cut into small cubes

Blend all the ingredients together, and apply it on your hair evenly. Wear a shower cap, or wrap a plastic bag around your hair. Rinse your hair thoroughly after 10 minutes.

Another hair mask

Mash a banana with the help of a fork and apply it on your hair for 15 minutes. Wash your hair with a good shampoo. You'll notice an instant shine and softness in your hair.

Teeth

If your teeth are beautiful, your smile would be awesome. Try this simple remedy to make your teeth shine like pearls.

  • 1 ripe strawberry
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Mash the strawberry well with a fork, and mix baking soda in it. Using your toothbrush, apply this mixture on your teeth and let it sit there for around 5 minutes. Brush your teeth with your usual toothpaste. Repeat the procedure weekly until you get your desired results.

Another Teeth whitener

Rub the inner side of a banana's peel on your teeth. Your teeth have to be dry. Wait for the banana ingredients to dry out (about 5 to 10 minutes.) Wipe off with a napkin. Doing this for two weeks will help you to get rid of teeth discoloration.
