Honey face mask
In order for this beauty tip to work properly, you need to make sure you’re using raw, organic honey and not the processed stuff. Raw honey has anti-bacterial properties that helps acne-prone skin. Just lather your face, let it sit for 10 minutes and wash off with warm water. The honey draws out toxins, which means it’ll get worse before it gets better, so persist and you’ll see results.
Conditioner shaving cream
Why spend money on a separate shaving cream, when your hair conditioner can do the same trick? Hair conditioner moisturises your skin and softens the hairs, making for an easier shave.
Baking soda teeth whitener
Teeth whitening can be extremely expensive. Instead of splashing out, try mixing one tablespoon of baking soda with 3 drops of hydrogen peroxide (found at your local chemist). Use it as a toothpaste for sparkling pearly whites! As this mixture is abrasive, it’s recommended you use it for 3 to 5 days, then wait 6 months before using it again.
Before entering the shower, apply mayonnaise to the bottom half of your hair to protect the ends while shampooing. While the shampoo’s soap is good for your scalp, it can strip your hair of moisture, making mayonnaise the perfect DIY solution—just remember to rinse it out thoroughly.
Exfoliate with an orange
The vitamin C and acid found inside an orange makes it the perfect exfoliator. If you’re looking for a more natural and cost-effective product to exfoliate with, simply cut an orange in half and start rubbing it on your skin!
