We do have a growing library of homemade beauty recipes but let's create a long list of homemade beauty tips here.
I will start things off with a few quickies and you can add yours below!
Most people will use expensive vitamin E cream when they're in need of an energy boost, but it's really not necessary.
You could also try adding oatmeal to your moisturizer to massage into the skin of your face. This will work as an exfoliant, but so gentle you won't feel a thing. Try to use a circular movement and then rinse off with cold water after around 5 minutes.
When you can see or feel a spot coming on, dab some tea tree essential oil onto the area then apply a blob of toothpaste before going to bed. The tea tree oil is a natural antiseptic, and the toothpaste is a good spot treatment.
When the toothpaste dries, it will draw toxins out from within the skin. And the Peppermint in the toothpaste will cool and act as an anti-inflammatory.
The following ingredients are all natural and work wonders for exfoliating your skin
pineapple juice, tomato juice, lemon juice and milk.
Apply any of these freshly squeezed juices or the milk directly to your clean skin using a cotton ball.
If you're really in a rush, grab an avocado (as fresh as possible) and slice it into halves. Remove the stone from the centre and rub the flesh all over your face.
This should dislodge dead skin, leaving your face sparkling. Rinse off when finished.
Face masks don't have to take all day to make, just make up your own face mask by combining one beaten white egg, with a teaspoon of vitamin C powder.
This will take your face mask to the next level in mere seconds. Just leave it on for about 5 or 10 minutes, and then rinse off.
Alternatively, apply a layer of mayonnaise to your face and wait 10 minutes. The egg in mayonnaise will leave your skin feeling incredible. Just rinse off with some warm water.
Getting hold of a lip balm when you're busy isn't always easy, but nearly everyone has honey! Just melt a tablespoon of honey with a teaspoon of rose water then leave it to cool.
Pour into a small pot and then use whenever you have chapped lips.
If you spot the beginnings of a cold sore, grab some calendula tincture and dab some on. This will dry and heal the affected area before it gets bad.
When your scalp is in need of some care, an anti-dandruff tonic is an excellent way to leave your hair feeling beautiful.
Mix 8fl oz of Witch Hazel with 2 to 3 drops of Rosemary essential oil.
Shampoo and condition your hair using your regular routine, towel dry and then spread the tonic over your scalp evenly with your fingertips.
Here's a great homemade beauty tip for damaged ends. Massage a little olive oil into the ends of your hair and wrap it in a warm towel for five or so minutes. To rinse out, just shampoo and condition as you normally would.
Pour some flat beer into a spray bottle and squirt a thin layer over your hair. This will act as an effective styling product! The smell of the beer should vanish when dried.
