Have you checked your kitchen for beauty products lately? Yes, you heard me, there are plenty of homemade beauty products that can be made just from checking your fridge. Letís just call them kitchen beauty tips for now even though some of these things may just as well be found in the garden. Fruits and vegetables are especially useful when it comes to kitchen beauty tips. Fruit can be used to make face masks. Fruits and vegetables will moisturize your skin. Best thing of all, it feels great!
So letís dive into my best kitchen beauty tips that really work:
A kitchen tip for dry lips is to use cocoa butter or fresh cucumber and rub it into your lips several times a day. Cocoa butter and oil can be used for the entire body if your skin feels dry. It wonít get sticky either.
For hands rub some olive oil and dry thyme into the skin. This will help remove dead cells helps your hands get smooth.
Avocado is great for dry skin. Mash it and cover your face with it. Wait for 15 minutes. Another thing you can do to create your own face mask is to mix a mashed half banana and combine it with egg yolk and olive oil. Bananas are good for your skin since theyíre full of vitamins.
For oily skin, whip some egg white until it gets foamy. This will take away some of the oiliness and might work against acne as well. Apply to your forehead, nose and chin.
To smoothen the skin on your body, try adding some whipping cream, olive oil and fresh mashed strawberries to your bath water. The oil and the cream will make your skin smooth while the strawberries will freshen it up. You will only need about a half cup of cream and a tablespoon of olive oil.
Tea and especially green tea or chamomile tea is another great kitchen beauty tip. It works fine against swollen eyes. Either let two teabags cool and put them on your eyelids for about ten minutes. Or soak two small pieces of cloth with tea and do the same thing. Green tea can also be used for foot baths. Combine green tea, peppermint, bath salt and maybe some eucalyptus oil and voila! Youíve made your own foot bath product.
Too make tired facial skin look great again, try this kitchen face mask: Combining 2 tablespoons of yoghurt, 2 tablespoons of grated apple, 1 teaspoon of juice from a lemon and 2 teaspoons of potato flour. Stir thoroughly and apply to the face.
A lot of kitchen beauty tips sites suggest that you use honey in your face. All I can say is, be careful with that! If your skin is peeling due to eczema or sunburn, the honey will just make it worse because itís so sticky. So either mix it with a lot of other things or avoid completely if youíre not sure. Also, there are so many different types of honey! (Yes, for example greek honey is a lot thicker than most kinds of honey.) This is why I wonít recommend it.
For facial cleaning, apple cider vinegar is great and is said to work against acne too. To be on the safe side, dilute it with water.
Those were the kitchen beauty tips I could come up with for now. I will add to this section as soon as I come across more kitchen cures that I find useful.
