I'll do just about anything in the name of beauty, especially when it comes to experimenting in my kitchen. Slathering mayo and eggs on my dry, frizzy hair in hopes that it would emerge gloriously smooth and shiny? Yup, did THAT, and it smelt horrible!
Whether you're in need of some brightening (lemon peels, anyone?), eyeball depuffing (bring on the cucumber!), or bump-soothing (eggs are wonderful in more than your morning omelet), why don't you have a look into your own pantry? It's there that I've discovered healthy, easy, cost-efficient solutions to some of my most pressing beauty concerns. Think lemons, oranges, bananas, honey, Greek yogurt, aloe vera juice...basically what I'm telling you is that your kitchen is filled to the brim with easy beauty recipes.
Throw yourself a DIY kitchen party (I'm about to with my fellow mbg editors) and you'll realize that pampering yourself really doesn't require leaving your home...
Lemons are filled with AHAs and BHAs, which remove dead skin cells and help clear up blackheads, acne, and discoloration, while honey is a natural antioxidant and antibacterial powerhouse.
Oatmeal is rich in skin-nourishing beta glucan, and fresh-from-the-fruit-squeezed orange and lemon as you now know are rich in vitamin C and skin-brightening powers. The triple whammy of honey turns this into a purifying antioxidant-rich scrub full of skin-loving vitamins!
Why It's Great:
All rainbow clays (think green, pink, red, white) have a high mineral content, and they help feed and absorb excess oils, dirt, and toxins from the skin. If you have dry skin, look for rose clay or white kaolin clay. For oilier skin, French green clay is the best.
Bananas contain a healthy dose of potassium, vitamin E, and natural oils, which will work together to smooth frizzy strands, while an extra dose of almond oil will fortify your hair in a jiffy.
