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.
For chronically dry hair and split ends, apply a few drops of olive oil. Work the oil through the entire length of your hair, placing emphasis on the ends. You can enhance the healing properties of the oil by wrapping your hair in a warm towel. Leave the oil on your hair for five to ten minutes, and then rinse your hair thoroughly.
8. Natural Sunburn Relief
For sunburned skin, apply apple vinegar, cold green tea or cucumber juice to the afflicted areas. Aloe vera is also excellent for sunburn, and the aloe vera serum is especially soothing. Mix the aloe vera serum with lemon juice for added sunburn relief. Applying raw potato slices to sunburn affected areas also brings relief.
9. Under Eye Puffiness Reducer
Even if you have had a good night’s sleep, you may sometimes face the morning with under eye bags that appear sufficiently large enough to pack for a week’s vacation. To relieve under eye puffiness, lie back, relax and apply cold cucumber slices over your closed eyelids. Another remedy for bags under your eyes is a mixture of cucumber juice and lemon juice applied once every day. You can also relieve under eye puffiness by applying coconut oil under your eyes every night before going to bed.
10. Natural Tooth Polish and Dental Stain Remover
If you want whiter teeth without the hassle and expense of whitening strips or trays, try brushing your teeth with baking powder twice each day. For stained teeth, rinse your mouth with a lukewarm solution of water and iodized salt, and then rub a lemon rind on your teeth and rinse thoroughly with cool water. Brown stains should begin to disappear immediately. For a delicious way to brighten your smile, simply bite into a crisp, juicy apple. You will also be cleansing your mouth of harmful bacteria with every bite.
