Today's post is a throwback to my first job and the kinds of articles I used to write. Whether you're looking to cut down on the chemicals you put on your skin, trying to save a few bucks or just need a quick fix until you can run to the drugstore for your regular product, you'll be amazed at how many DIY beauty remedies you can create from stuff you probably already have in your fridge. Here are just a few:
Cranberry Lip Balm
Moisturizing Egg & Olive Oil Conditioner
Citrus Teeth Whitener
Exfoliating Oatmeal Scrub
Clarifying Shampoo with Lemon Juice
Combine 1 ounce olive oil, 1 egg, 1 tbsp lemon juice and 1 tsp apple cider vinegar in a blender and mix. Apply to hair and rinse (discard any leftovers).
Brunette Color Booster
Brew a cup of coffee, let it cool completely, then leave on hair for 20 minutes to warm up brunette tones.
Be good to your skin from the inside out...
Drink green or black tea: They boast acne-fighting antioxidants and phytonutrients.
Eat more salmon: Its healthy omega-3 fatty acids reduce the body's production of inflammatory substances, decreasing clogged arteries and preventing lines and wrinkles.
Include flax seeds in your diet: Also packed with omega-3 fatty acids, flax seeds can help make hair thicker and stronger.
