1. Cucumber Eye Treatment
We have always learned that cucumbers are good for the skin and can easily be used for treating swelling and dark circles around the eyes. Simply slice the cucumber and put two of these over your eyes, and keep them there for about 20 minutes.
2. Avocado Mask
Do it yourself beauty tips won’t be complete without the avocado mask. This really gives benefits to the person because aside from the essential vitamins and minerals that avocado contains, it is also organic and chemical-free. To come up with the avocado mask, simply blend together the avocado flesh using a blender or a food processor, and then massage it on your face. After 15 minutes, take off the avocado mask by using tissue soaked in warm water.
3. Homemade Conditioner
Conditioners can be quite expensive when purchased at the store. So why not make your own homemade conditioner? Aside from the health benefits that you can get from it, it’s also very cheap and easy to make. You can do this by mixing 1 tablespoon of acid vinegar together with 4 cups of water in a container with cap. Shake it first, and then apply it after shampooing.
4. Natural Blonde Highlights
Who said you that you have to go to the salon and spend money so that you could make your hair blonde? With a few ingredients that are found in your kitchen, you’ll definitely be able to achieve natural blonde hair highlights. To do this, add ¼ cup of lemon juice to ¾ cup of water, and then rinse your hair with the mixture. In this situation, lemon juice serves as the natural bleach. To moisturize your hair, apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner. Let your hair dry under the sun. To obtain maximum effect, repeat once a day for up to 1 week.
5. Coffee Scrub
When I first heard of this technique, I thought it was a little weird. But I have found out that massage parlors also have this type of service, and I tell you, it’s not cheap at all. So why pay expensive money to massage parlors when you can save so much at home? To do your homemade coffee scrub, brew a fresh pot of coffee. Then, mix 3 tablespoons of the fresh grounds together with 1 tablespoon of salt. Scrub the mixture all over your body within 20 minutes of brewing before oxidation occurs. Coffee contains Vitamin E and Magnesium, and serves as antibacterial, exfoliating and stimulating agent.
6. Strawberry Bleach Mask
This natural strawberry bleach mixture can remove stains and discoloration of the teeth. Just crush one ripe strawberry and mix it with ½ teaspoon of baking soda. Using a toothbrush, apply the mixture on your teeth, and let it set for 5 minutes. And then, brush your teeth with your regular toothpaste afterwards. Repeat this once a week.
7. Mashed Potatoes for Swollen Feet
This sounds weird, but you can actually cure your swollen feet by soaking it in mashed potato. Just buy a box of dehydrated mashed potatoes and follow what’s on the box. Once you have the mashed potatoes, add lukewarm water to set the right temperature for soaking your feet. The potatoes will retain heat longer than an ordinary footbath and help reduce swelling and also soften the skin.
8. Treatment for Yellow Stained Nails
To help fade the yellow stain, put a freshly cut lemon on your nails or mix 1 teaspoon of lemon juice together with 2 tablespoons of water. Then, soak your nails into the solution for 15 minutes. Follow this up with moisturizing cream or lotion just to make sure the lemon juice didn’t dry them out.
9. Free Spa Treatment
Yes, you heard it right! But how would such an expensive service in massage parlors become free of charge? Well, this might not be the spa treatment that you normally experience, but this is definitely worth a try. For a simple hydrotherapy at home, start off by having a hot steamy shower. Then, when you are almost done, switch the water to cold temperature and have a shower for about 15 seconds. Repeat this process for 2 minutes. This hydrotherapy technique can help stimulate blood flow through the skin, thus revitalizing it.
10. Milk Foot Soak
One of the best ways to detoxify the body naturally is by making and using homemade milk detoxifying milk soak. You can make this solution by using 4 cups of warmed whole milk, 2 tablespoons of Epsom Salt and 6 drops of the essential oil of your choice. Soaking your feet in this detoxifying foot soak can help stimulate body organs and improve blood circulation which can help flush out the toxins.
