Facial Scrubs and Masks
- Mix sugar and olive oil together. Using a toothbrush or finger, rub in little circular motions on your lips to exfoliate and get rid of the dead skin.
For acne-prone skin, apply egg whites to your face, avoiding the eye area, for 15 minutes. The egg helps to minimize pores and tighten skin.
For dull skin, mix strawberries and plain yogurt and apply to your face.
Facial Treatments and Cleansers
- To reduce eye puffiness, place sliced, cold cucumbers over your eyes for about 15 minutes. You can also use chilled black tea bags or chilled spoons. The cold temperature helps to alleviate swelling.
Combine cucumber juice and milk to make a natural facial cleanser.
For whiter teeth, cut a strawberry in half and rub over your teeth. Let sit for 5 minutes and brush teeth thoroughly to avoid damage from the acid in the strawberry juice. This should be done once a week at most.
Bath & Body
- Mix coffee grounds with egg whites and apply all over your body in the shower. The caffeine agents in the coffee grounds help to energize the skin and make you glow.
Mix coffee grounds into your shampoo for shiny, silky hair.
For clearer complexion and more vibrant skin, drink lemon mixed with lukewarm water. It helps to improve your skin's appearance.
