I’m always looking for easy at-home remedies to fix little flaws I may have, such as dry skin or an annoying pimple that just won’t go away. While I’ve tried expensive products from the store that don’t work, I’ve taken to trying homemade remedies first. Especially for the fact that these at-home mixtures are much cheaper. I found 6 new all-natural beauty fixes to try. Hopefully they work!
1. Baking Soda Exfoliation
Mix 4 teaspoons of baking soda with 1 tablespoon of water and let sit for two minutes. Then rinse your face and apply the mixture in small, circular motions. Leave it one for three minutes, and then rinse your face with warm water followed by a splash of cold water. Repeat weekly, unless you have dry skin. Then use it every other week.
2. Lemons to Remove Dry Patches
The citric acid in lemons helps remove dead skin cells. Slice a lemon in half and rub the juicy side on any rough patches you have, such as your elbows, knees or heels for a few seconds. The rinse. You should notice a difference immediately.
3. Coffee to Make Cellulite Fade
Mix together 2 tablespoons of used coffee grounds (not decaffeinated) with 4 teaspoons of olive oil. Spread over cellulite in upward strokes. Massage into your skin for two minutes and then rinse.
4. Mint to Shrink a Pimple
Put a small handful of peppermint leaves into a food processor with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Cover the pimple for 15 minutes and then rinse. Repeat this routine twice a day until the spot disappears.
5. Ginger Ale to Get Rid of Yellow Nails
Pour ginger ale into a small bowl, and put your nails in for 10 minutes twice a week. It bleaches your nails naturally.
6. Parsley to Brighten Dark Eye Circles
Mix a small handful of fresh parsley and 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt in a food processor. Pulse until a smooth paste has formed. Apply this paste to your undereye are. Leave it on for 20 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water.
