Trash the Needless Chemicals: 3 Essential DIY Beauty Fixes You Can Whip Up In Your Kitchen

1. Lip Scrub for dry and parched lips – Brown Sugar + Olive Oil and that’s it

In order to vaunt those bright lipstick colours it’s very important you have a fresh and smooth canvas to begin with. This remedy takes all of two minutes to make and all you have to do is take 1 tsp of each and mix it into a granulated paste. Scrub gently for about a minute and give yourself the pleasure of having a nourished and healthy pout.

2. Toner – Apple cider vinegar + Water

This may sound unappealing but the anti-bacterial properties of apple cider vinegar and its ability to remove dead skin cells makes it an excellent natural skin toner.

Mix one part apple cider vinegar with two parts water ( to dilute the acidity in the vinegar ) and dab on to face by dipping a cotton ball or pad into the solution.

3. Exfoliant – Baking soda + Water

After a long day in the outdoors with the skin being exposed to pollutants and excessive sun-light, baking soda has the magical capability to eliminate dead skin, oil or dirt from the face.

Mix in one table spoon of baking soda with a few drops of water to make it into a paste. Apply this concoction to your face in circular motions and rinse.
