Every woman wants to look her best. The problem is that commercial beauty products can be incredibly expensive and can also contain ingredients that you do not want to be exposed to. One great way to solve this problem is to learn how to make homemade, natural beauty products at home that save you money but also keeping your hair, skin and nails strong, healthy and beautiful. Here are 7 examples of what kinds of treatments you can do in the comfort of your own home.
Baking Soda Facial Scrub
Many women are aware of the number of uses that baking soda has around the home. Fewer realize its potential for beauty treatment. An excellent facial scrub can be made simply by combining baking soda and water into a paste, spreading it onto your face like you would a mask, and letting it sit while you shower. Rinse it off after your shower and you will be amazed at how soft and clean your skin feels.
Apple Cider Vinegar Toner
Wetting a cotton ball with apple cider vinegar and simply applying it as a toner is an excellent way to achieve healthy-looking skin. Its vitamins and minerals give your skin the nutrients it needs and it also acts to tighten and tone, leaving the face younger-looking and healthy.
Baking Soda Dandruff Shampoo
A dry, flaking scalp can be a real beauty problem, especially in the summer heat. However, washing frequently with the harsh chemicals in many shampoos may just make the problem worse. One solution is to rub baking soda into wet hair in place of a shampoo treatment, making sure to work it into the scalp, then rinsing and conditioning like normal. This will quickly treat the dandruff.
Honey Facial Mask
Applying honey to your face as you would a regular mask, leaving it in place for approximately half an hour, then rinsing gently is rather sticky work. The pay-off, however, is soft, smooth, acne-free skin: the natural antimicrobial properties of honey help to kill off the bacteria that causes acne in the first place.
This versatile oil has many uses as a beauty treatment. It can serve as a once-weekly conditioning treatment when applied to the hair, but can also be applied to the face as a moisturizer and also to the legs as a shaving oil to keep the skin soft and smooth after a shave. In addition, it makes a great cuticle cream as well.
Not all beauty treatments are topical. If you feel like you need extra treatment for your skin through supplementation, try spirulina tablets. They are rich in Vitamin A which will help prevent acne, wrinkles and aging of the skin. You will notice that your hair and nails look better when you take this, too!
Black soap is made from all-natural ingredients. It is meant to soften, nourish and detoxify and will leave your skin feeling fresh, moisturized and cleansed. It also makes a great body soap and will not dry out the skin.
So the next time you want to indulge yourself in a beauty treatment, look no further than your cupboard. You are sure to have of these simple ingredients that will have your skin, hair and nails looking fabulous naturally.
