You may discount the one hundred brush strokes for your hair that your great grandmother swore by. You almost certainly do not wash with lye soap. However, many homemade beauty tips are just as sound now as they were in your great-grandmother’s or great-grandfather’s day. In fact, your kitchen and your pantry represent potential treasure troves for beauty and grooming products that work just as well or better than commercial products that are much more expensive.
1. Sea Salt Scrub
Exfoliation eliminates dead skin cells that can clog pores and potentially cause breakouts. Commercial products often feature ground walnut shells or avocado seeds in a cream or lotion base. You can achieve the same exfoliation results with a scrub made up of sea salt in an olive oil base that is gentler to your skin than many products sold in stores.
