Here are some of my absolute fave, quick +
dirty clean, DIY beauty tips on the cheap…
Hopefully, you’ll have most of these ingredients in your kitchen already, but if you don’t – Amazon is a great place to get them for decent price online. And… as always, use the highest quality of fresh, natural + organic ingredients as possible.
- Cleanser – Massage 1 tsp. of Raw Honey into clean, damp skin + rinse thoroughly. It won’t remove makeup, but it will help clear up blemished or super-dry skin.
- Toner – With a cotton ball, apply Apple Cider Vinegar to damp skin.
- Detoxifying Facial – To detox blemish-prone skin, boil 2 Tea Bags in a pot of water. Remove from heat + let cool for a few minutes. Pour it into a large, heat-safe bowl. Drape a towel over your head + the bowl, steaming for 10-15 minutes.
- Mask – Reduce redness + irritation by applying a thin mask of Yogurt to damp skin. Rinse clean.
- Instant Face Lift – Get an instant, natural face-lift. Wisk + apply one Egg White to your entire face, or just areas with fine lines. Let it set + dry, then rinse.
- Eye Soother – Applying fresh Cucumber or Potato slices for 5-10 minutes to pamper tired, puffy peepers.
- Scar Treatment – Puncture a natural Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) capsule with a safety pin + apply to damp skin. Leave on for as long as possible, rinse clean.
- Cotton Rounds – Make re-usable cotton rounds by cutting up old cotton T-shirts or Towels . Use for makeup removal or toner + toss into the laundry after each use.
- Moisture Bath – Add Milk to a tub of hot water for soft skin like Cleopatra’s. Soak for 20 minutes + rinse.
- Body Scrub – Mix granulated Sugar with a healthy, edible Cooking Oil – like Coconut or EVOO. Apply in shower to exfoliate dry, dull skin. Shower may be slippery though, so be careful!
- Body Moisturizer – Instead of body lotion, apply an oil you would cook with (like Coconut or Extra Virgin Olive Oil) on damp skin to seal in moisture.
- Body Powder – Sprinkle Cornstarch or Arrowroot powder on hair, feet, under-arms or on baby booties as needed.
- Shampoo – Sprinkle Baking Soda into wet hair, massage + rinse for a no shampoo method of washing your hair. Boost the cleansing power of your regular shampoo by adding a teaspoon of dry Baking Soda along with the suggested amount during each use. Rinse + Condition as usual.
- Conditioner – To increase shine or bring out red tones in your tresses, rinse your hair with dilution of ¼ cup of ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) / ½ cup of water. This dilution works well with the No ‘Poo method mentioned above.
- Deep Conditioner – For a deep moisturizing hair treatment, massage a few tablespoons of Coconut Oil or Mayonnaise into your scalp. Leave it in for 20 minutes, shampoo twice, rinse well + condition as usual.
