Sometimes I feel like all those expensive skin care products people rave about just don’t do the trick! Well get ready to raid your kitchen, because I have some at home tips to add to your beauty regime that won’t cost you more than your grocery list!
Lemons: Did you know lemons are a good cleanser/acne treatment substitute? It’s really great for treating blackheads and brightening your skin. Wet your face with warm water to open up your pores, and then slather that baby on!!! Gently rub the juice onto your face with a cotton pad and leave it on for about 10-15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water and you’ll be left with a freshly cleansed face!
Sugar + Olive Oil: We all know that gross and embarrassing feeling of having our lips peel whenever we wear our new matte lipstick. YUCK! Here’s a great tip for an at home lip exfoliator babes!! Mix 1 or 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sugar together until it forms a slight paste. Rub it back and forth on your lips with your fingers and rinse off with warm water. Feel free to repeat if you feel like you didn’t exfoliate enough! I like to do this at least twice a week. My lips definitely feel the difference!!
Tea Bags: If you’re running low on sleep, your puffy eyes will instantly give you away. No matter how big your sunglasses are!!! Well now your morning tea can help you out in two ways! After you’ve boiled and steeped your morning cup, place your squeezed out tea bags to the side. You’ll need two non herbal green or black tea bags. As soon as they’ve cooled, place them on your eyes for about 10 minutes!
Coconut Oil: Next time you realize you’re out of makeup removal wipes, head straight to your kitchen pantry! Coconut oil is an awesome natural makeup remover! Soft and sweet, you won’t need to worry about any harsh chemicals irritating your skin or eyes! With freshly washed hands, scoop out your coconut oil and warm it in between your fingers. Rub it on your face and eyes, and gently wipe away with a cotton swab.
