10 Kitchen Ingredients You Can Use As Beauty Products
We’ve all hod those days where we’ve run out of our favourite cleanser and can’t remove those layers of makeup or have a huge pimple and no pimple cream. Well now instead of having a major beauty breakdown you can just head to the kitchen and whip up a little something to feed your face with.
Chamomile tea bags: We all have those mornings where we wake up after a few too many wines and our eyes are dark and puffy. The good news is you can fix this by simply putting some used chamomile tea bags in the fridge for an hour then cover your eye are for 5-20 minutes with them. Then you’ll look refreshed and ready to face the day.
Banana: Not only is this fruit good for you to eat it also makes a great face mask! Bananas are very soothing and help add moisture to your skin, just mash up a banana and put it on your skin for 10-15 minutes then wash it off with warm water.
Coffee Grounds: Coffee grounds make a great exfoliater, they help get rid of stretch marks and smooth out your skin. Just mix a handful of coffee grounds with coconut or olive oil and scrub it over your problem areas when in the shower, wash it off and then you’ll instantly silky smooth skin.
Avocado: If you have an over ripe avocado sitting in your kitchen, don’t throw it out just mash it up and put it through your hair and on your face leave for 20 minutes then wash it off. The healthy oils and fats in the avocado will make your skin and hair super soft and healthy.
Milk: If your skin is feeling tired and dull splash some cold milk on it and leave to sit for 5 minutes, then wash off and your skin will feel instantly fresh and awake.
Garlic: Throw away that Clearasil, all you need is a clove of garlic to zap and unwanted zit. When you feel a pimple coming up just cut some garlic in half and dap it on the problem areas before bed then it should be gone by the morning.
Egg Whites: Egg whites are great for firming your skin and fighting the signs of aging. Just take some egg white and rub it over your face, leave to sit for 10-20 minutes then wash it off with warm water.
Apple Cider Vinegar or Apple Juice: You can use either of these as a toner to help balance the PH levels of your skin and restore its natural moisture. Just put some of the juice or vinegar on a cotton ball and whip it over your face then follow with your usual moisturiser.
Grapefruit: The hydroxyl acids in grapefruit acts as a natural exfoliate. If you have any rough patches on your skin like your elbows or feet just cut a grapefruit in half and sit the area of skin in the grapefruit for at least 5 minutes.
Green Tea: Green tea has antimicrobial properties that help fight the bacteria that cause acne. You can either use some cooled green tea as a face wash or toner. Or place a cold used tea bag on the problem areas on your face for 5-10 minutes.
