Time is one thing that most of us women don’t kid around with. Every minute counts. So it won’t come as a surprise if you say you don’t have enough time to go to a salon to keep your beauty in check.
So here are some basic DIY beauty hacks you can do in no time:
Green tea bags for puffiness:
Sleepless nights, endless days and a truckload of work and responsibilities mean that your eyebags have taken a huge toll. It might even stress you out that you don’t look the way you once did. Try keeping cold green tea bags under your eyes for five minutes. The caffeine in the tea powder would help your skin recover and tighten. You would look younger by years in a matter of days.
Lemon face toner:
Your face says a lot about you. So it is essential to take care of it. Use this simple lemon toner to get a deep cleansing of your skin. You don’t even have to make a mixture. Simply squeeze fresh lemon juice onto a cotton ball and rub all over your face. This is extremely healthy as it doesn’t contain any of the alcoholic ingredients used in toner products. In time, this remedy would even lighten the dark patches on your skin.
Coffee scrub for stretch marks:
Let’s face it. Stretch marks are a nuisance to almost all the women and can reduce your confidence. Use ground coffee and olive oil to make a paste. The paste would essentially have to stick to your skin for about 20 minutes. The caffeine in coffee helps with blood flow and circulation. It also removes dead cells and loose skin. Olive oil holds the benefits of cleansing and protecting your skin. It also penetrates the skin, to work on all the skin levels to effectively fade away stretch marks.
Oil and avocado hair mask:
It is essential as women to keep our hair looking beautiful, silky and smooth. Use 2 tablespoons of honey and an average sized avocado to make a dry hair mask. Apply it on your hair and leave it on for 20 minutes. The humectants in honey and the unsaturated oils in the avocado would result in giving you wonderfully moisturized hair.
Honey, cinnamon and coconut beauty face mask:
Dry skin can be a problem to any woman out there, especially where your face is concerned. Take one tablespoon of honey, half a tablespoon of cinnamon powder and coconut flakes to make this simple mixture. Slowly massage it onto your face and leave it on for a few minutes. The antioxidants in this mixture would help make your facial skin extremely soft and plump.
Brown sugar, honey and olive oil lip scrub:
Lips possess softer and more sensitive cells than most of the other parts in your body. So it is important to take proper care of them, so that they won’t be chapped and dry. Use brown sugar, honey and olive oil to make a scrub that would exfoliate your lips.
