Homemade Beauty Tips
Are you naturalist? Want to look your best without spending too much on artificially processed products? Well, you don’t necessarily have to buy jarfuls of expensive hair conditioners and skincare products when you can make them at home! Who doesn’t like saving up AND looking beautiful? Here are some amazing home remedies for your economical beauty trip:
- Cleansing: Cleansing your skin is one of the most important parts of keeping it healthy. Throughout the day, dirt can deposit on your face, leaving clogged pores and an oily sheen. Milk makes an excellent natural cleanser, be it the bottle or the carton kind. Just dab a cotton ball into some cold milk and cleanse your face just like you would with a regular cleanser. Remember, cleansing should be a part of your daily skincare routine. Don’t forget to tone your skin when you are done.
- Toning: Toning is important to prevent open pores. Nature is ever-so-kind to us. There are some great toners chilling in your fridge as you read this! Rub some tomato pulp gently on your skin after cleansing. Or you could just use a nice, juicy orange peel. Even rosewater makes a refreshing toner. You can even try spraying some rosewater or cucumber juice on to your skin. Make sure to keep these in the fridge.
- Scrubbing: Scrubs are some of the more expensive skincare products. But don’t worry; you can make very effective scrubs on your own at home. Gram flour or besan makes a divine mild scrub especially for oily skin. Orange and lemon peels can be dried in the sun and ground to make a nice, easy-to-store dry scrub. Just rinse your face with water and gently rub the scrub on your skin. Because of how affordable they are, these scrubs can also be used as body scrubs. Body scrubs run out very quickly and buying them so often can get expensive.
- Hair conditioning: Who doesn’t adore silky locks? Conditioning regularly is a significant step in achieving lovely silky and shiny tresses. You can also make great conditioners at home and they are a lot more effective than bottled conditioner you buy all the time. Tea is not only delicious to taste but makes a great hair rinse. Wash your hair as you normally would and rinse it with tea-water for a shiny effect.
You can make a yoghurt hair pack for a splendid hair treat. Get enough yoghurt to cover your hair generously, add one tablespoon each of vinegar, olive oil and gram flour. Apply the mixture to your hair for twenty minutes and shampoo off like you normally would. For best results, use twice a week.
