1. Oatmeal and Brown Sugar Scrub
Use this all-natural scrub to get rid of those dead skin cells on your legs and arms to keep them soft and glowing. Mix half a cup of oats with two cups of brown sugar, two tbsps of lemon juice and half a cup of grapeseed oil.
The rough texture will remove any dead skin cells and the oil will leave your skin feeling soft.
2. Natural Makeup Remover
For a natural makeup remover hidden in your kitchen, simply look for some coconut oil. Take off your mascara with coconut oil by putting some on your fingertips and gently rub onto your lashes in small circles. Use a damp cotton pad to wipe off the smudges to leave your lashes mascara free and naturally restored.
3. Lemons for Brighter Skin
Try a mix of lemon and coconut water for a natural moisturizer that also brightens your skin. Coconut water nourishes the skin and lemon can lighten blemishes and brighten our skin. Simply add a few drops of lemon to some coconut water to leave your skin radiant and hydrated.
As an extra bonus tip, slice a lemon in half and rub it onto stretch marks to lighten the skin and buff away and dead skin cells.

4. Remove Blackheads the Kitchen Way
For an effective blackheads remover to open and cleanse your pores, try this answer from your kitchen. Mix one tbsp of baking soda, one tbsp of sugar and two tbsps of water into a fine paste. Wet your skin and then massage in the paste before rinsing off and patting your skin dry. You are left with fresh, clean skin and no blackheads to be seen!
5. Green Tea Answer to Tired Eyes
If you have tired, puffy eyes at the end of a long day, try this simple green tea remedy. Get a couple of soft, cotton pads and soak them in green tea and lay them on your eyes. The caffeine in the tea will help to shrink the appearance of blood vessels while the antioxidants will reduce the puffiness.
If you sometimes wake up with puffy eyes, you can keep some green tea in the fridge to use the remedy in the morning.
6. Apple Cider Hair Lift
If your hair is feeling a bit limp and depressed, give it a lift with a homemade apple cider rinse. Mix one part apple cider vinegar to one part water and pour it into a spray bottle. After shampooing, spray the apple cider lift onto your hair and massage in. Let it sit for a few minutes and simply rinse off.
Keep in mind, the smell might not be the best. So if you have any essential oils just add a few drops of your favorite one to the mix. Peppermint is great for leaving your scalp tingling and feeling fresh.
7. Tiny Pores
To shrink those pores try this kitchen remedy that uses two very common ingredients. Just combine two-four drops of lemon juice with one spoon of tomato juice, apply and leave for 15 minutes. It can’t get any more simple than that!
8. Honey Facial
Raw honey is just amazing for the skin. Containing powerful healing enzymes, which deal with blemishes and discoloration, plus it’s full of useful antioxidants too.
Pour half a cup of honey into a mixing bowl and apply all over your face and neck using your fingertips. To make the honey easier to work into the skin, splash your face with water and pat dry. Leave the mixture on for 15 to 20 minutes or if you can take it, leave it on overnight for even better results.
