At-Home Beauty Remedies That Really Work
Winter is coming! And so are the holidays. Look and feel your best this holiday season by skipping the spa and trying these natural, household products. You’ll be thrilled about how you look and feel… and about how much money you’ll save for everyone on your holiday list.
1. Baking Soda
Mix baking soda and water until it becomes a paste. Gently exfoliate your face and body with the mixture. The baking soda doesn’t only get rid of dead skin; it deep cleans your pores leaving your skin feeling completely clean and rejuvenated. Try some baking soda on your toothbrush too to get rid of bad breath and deep stains.
2. Olive Oil
Olive oil has many great uses outside of the kitchen. Our favorite is using it to soften cuticles. Another great use is mixing olive oil with sugar to exfoliate your skin without over drying it.
Winter means dry skin! If you suffer from dry hands and skin, cut a lemon in half and rub it on your hands, elbows and knees. It works in seconds and your skin will come out baby soft. And it smells amazing! Squeeze some lemon in your water too to help flush out any toxins in your body.
4. Coconut Oil
This is another household ingredient with several uses. Try using it instead of shaving cream. It’s gentle and creamy, leaving your legs feeling silky soft and hydrated. Try it as a mouth wash too to help whiten your teeth and get rid of headaches.
5. Green Tea
I love green tea! It’s so good for you and it works amazingly as a toner. Brew a cup, chill it, place some on a cotton ball or spray bottle and apply to your face. Green tea is full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents that leave your skin feeling fresh and even.
6. Dryer Sheets
You may find that you have extra static cling in the colder months. That’s because you do. If you find that your hair sticks up and is just completely unmanageable, try gently rubbing a dryer sheet over your hair. The sheet will remove the static instantly and it lasts all day.
This is a no-brainer, but I must list it as my favorite. It’s no secret that we need plenty of glasses a day and for a good reason- water is the best thing for your body, skin and overall health. It keeps you hydrated, healthy and flushes out bodily toxins. Drinking 8 glasses a day improves digestion, skin complexion, regularity, immunity and it gets rid of headaches.
There you have it ladies! You can feel like a millions bucks this season by only spending less than 20. Have a wonderful, happy, healthy and Georgeous holiday season!
