Yes, I am saying that you can can get the glowing skin or the healthy hair that you always desired right from your very own home! These 10 secret beauty tricks are easy and really do work! Just give them a try if you don’t believe me.
1.) Sugar scrub- Do you want soft, silky legs? You probably think that buying an expensive razor and your favorite scented shaving cream will do the trick- Wrong. Sure, a good razor will benefit you, but the key is to use a sugar scrub. You can buy sugar scrubs at the store, but believe you me, they are not cheap! That is why I make my own using the simple ingredients of: sugar, canola oil, and freshly squeezed orange juice. After you shave your legs once, rub them with sugar scrub and rinse. Repeat this on both legs- Yes, I mean after you rinse, shave and apply the scrub. The sugar scrub removes any dead skin that is on your legs and will leave them incredibly soft and silky!
2.) Do you have trouble sleeping or do are the natural circles under your eyes just making you look exhausted? Well, this remedy should be used twice a week and will definitely remove those ugly, dark eye circles. All you have to do is chop and crush a small spray of mint leaves. Once you have done that, place the leaves on your eye circles for 15-20 minutes and then rinse. If you do this, you won’t have those tired looking eyes anymore!
3.) Do you have a wedding coming up? Or a prom? A special event, but your smile is fairly dull and yellow? You can easily get those pearly whites you have been wanting by brushing with this mixture once a week! Combine a small amount of toothpaste, one teaspoon of baking soda, one teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide and half a teaspoon of water. Brush with this mixture once a week for 2 minutes and you will have a beautiful smile with dazzling, white teeth.
4.) Rice water toner- Sounds nuts right? Well, it’s not. Take a 1/2 cup of organic rice and pour it into a bowl. Next, add hot water- enough so that it is an inch above the rice. Stir until the water is cloudy. Then, simply take a cottonball, dip it in the water and apply to your face as you would a toner. You will see that it makes your skin softer, reduces redness and evens out your skin tone.
5.) Is your hair brittle and thin? Do you find yourself buying all sorts of hair products to make your hair thick and strong? Well, stop because I have the answer right here. The answer is almond oil. Yes, almond oil. Simply massage a small amount of it into your hair during your shower and it will leave your hair strong and think with a lovely shine.
