We all see the advertisements on television or on the internet, we hear about these life changing products. They make you hair smooth and shiny, your skin clear and flawless, and all for the low price of 19.99! Well what if we can get the same results from something we have already in our homes. I’ve tried quite a few and here are some I found that actually bring results.
Olive oil: It has many uses, and I keep a bottle of it under my sink at all times.
Hand soak– Drop about a cup full into a small bowl. Soak your hands for about 10 minutes, your hands will be incredibly soft and your nails will shine.
Makeup Remover -That eyeliner that just won’t come off? Just dab a little olive oil on a cotton ball and it will come off almost immediately with no harsh chemicals near your eyes.
Hair Mask– Pour a half cup over your hair and set it in a shower cap for 15 minutes and your hair will become luscious and shiny.
Lip scrub– Mix a little sugar with olive oil and use a new toothbrush with stiff bristles. Dip it into the mixture and scrub onto your lips in a circular motion, the dead skin cells will be gone in no time.
Baking Soda: Again this is a primary beauty product for me and I use it on a daily basis and it is quite versatile.
Teeth Whitener– Either with water, or peroxide it is a gentle way to whiten, with out the outrageous prices on traditional bleaching systems.
Dandruff Treatment– Again just mix with water. Apply the paste to your hair and let it sit for at leased 5 minutes. Repeat this treatment 3 times a week for 3 weeks and I promise you’ll see an improvement.
Deodorant– Use a powder puff and pat on in place of your deodorant or anti-persperent. I use it with baby powder for the pleasant smell.
Acne Treatment– Add hot water and dip a q-tip inside the mixture, dab it on the whitehead.
Hair treatment-Apply to hair to enhance your color and shine.
Honey: Used by it self or assisted by other ingredients it can be used as many things like a face mask and exfoliates and lip scrub.
Face mask– mix with eggs or by itself, it will diminish black heads and pour size.
Face scrub– Mix with organic whole oats, sugar and yogurt and a small bit of lemon juice.
Hair Rinse– Mix with hot water, pour over your hair, letting sit for 3 to 5 minutes, rinse thoroughly.
