Have no time nor the money to spare on going to spas or beauty salons? No worries, with a couple simple ingredients that are already in your kitchen, you will be able to create many DIY scrubs and masks that will make you feel that you just stepped out of a spa.
1/2 cup of Sugar (White or Brown sugar whatever kind you prefer) adding to 1/2 of Coconut oil, and you can use it before a shower or a bath! Extra points for using Coconut Oil as a moisturizer for baby soft skin.
Ran out of your favorite lip balm and need a quick and soothing one, just grab your jar of Vaseline and a jar of honey! Add one teaspoon of Vaseline and melt it over hot steam (do not melt directly over a fire as it might ruin the Vaseline), then melt an equal amount of honey over a small fire! Combine the two liquids and mix till it turns into a white creamy texture. Then add it to an old lip balm container and let it cool for 2-3 hours or simply put it in the fridge…Extra tip you can swap the honey with cocoa powder/mashed berries or whatever you prefer.
Perfect lip scrub for summer, when our lips are dry from the heat, by using this scrub your lips will go back to its original smooth nature. Simply add a teaspoon of Olive Oil, Cinnamon, and Sugar and mix them together till it turns to a dark brown sugar. Then by using a toothbrush (preferably a new one just for this scrub) spread the scrub all over your lips and scrub using the toothbrush for about 5 minutes. After you’re done wash your lips with warm water, and finish off by applying lip balm. Use 1-2 a week!
There are several recipes that can help whiten your teeth, you can use the inside of a banana peel, and rub it all over your teeth, as bananas are rich with potassium and many other minerals that help to whiten the teeth!
Another fruit that does miracles to teeth is strawberries, by crushing a strawberry and adding to it 1/2 teaspoon o Baking Soda, then spreading them on your teeth for 5 minutes! Then using a toothbrush gently starting scrubbing and cleaning your teeth. This can be used twice a week!
