Simple Home Beauty Remedies

While looking online for my latest diy beauty project, I came across some beauty tips and wanted to share. I also was surprised to learn how common baking soda was used as an active ingredient! Please feel free to share any others that I can add to my list. 😉

*Trouble removing your makeup? Give Vasaline a try, it will also moisturize your skin.

*Mix baking soda with lemon juice to act as an exfoliant for the face!

*Pimples? Mix baking soda w/water to help dry them out.

*For whiter teeth, use an equal amount of strawberries (mashed) with baking soda and put on teeth for 30 minutes before rinsing out. (Be careful, not to do often b/c the sugar can wear down enamel)

*Did you know coconut oil is not only great for your hair, but a go to moisturizer for the skin?

*Want to get rid of the appearance of dry cracked feet? Soak feet in 2 cups of hydrogen peroxide and 2 cups of hot water for 30 min. Dry feet then use a pomice to rid dead skin then apply lotion.

*For white healthy nails, once a week use 2 1/2 tablespoons of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide and leave on nails for about 3 min. and then rinse.

*Want to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles around the eyes?  Mix a little Vitamin E with coconut oil!

*Adding an egg to your hair shampoo is known to help grow and promote stronger hair.

Bonus:
If you don’t clean your cosmetic brushes often, they can lead to face break outs. Here is a simple trick to cleaning them: Just use 1tsp. of baking soda and 1/2 cup of water and walah!
