Are you trying to get rid of those bags under your eyes?

Or maybe you’re wanting tighter, firmer skin?

Well did you know that instead of spending tons of money on new beauty creams and make up tools-the secret can actually be in your kitchen?

Try some of these tips to get beautiful, healthy skin-the natural (and affordable!) way!!

Whiter teeth Want whiter teeth? Put away those whitening strips and try some good ol’ fashion strawberries instead. Just crush one strawberry and mix with 1/2  teaspoon of baking soda until it’s a paste. Then use a soft toothbrush (you may want to use a separate toothbrush since it may stain it) and brush your teeth as normal. Leave it on for 5 minutes and then rinse. Use floss to get rid of any seeds and you can safety do this once a week.

Exfoliate For softer hands, feet, knees and elbows why not mix together olive oil with some sugar or sea salt? The sugar or sea salt grains will exfoliate while the olive oil will leave your body parts feeling nice and moisturized.

Eye makeup remover Ran out? Mix 2 parts water with 1 part extra virgin olive oil, shake it up, and then apply to a cotton ball and swipe it across your eyes. This will easily remove your eye make up AND moisturize your lids as well. Just remember to shake it every time you have to reapply to make sure the oil and water mix well.

Body scrub Try mixing your favorite essential oils like peppermint, lavender or lemon with olive oil and epsom salt to make your entire body feel soft.

Face mask Need a face mask and you happen to have a bunch of tomatoes in the fridge? Then cut a tomato in half and rub it all ove your face, particularly on your t-zone if you have oily skin. Leave the juice on your face for at least 10 minutes and then rinse it off and watch as your face becomes less oily and your pores appear smaller!

Dark Circles Had a late night? Soak a cotton ball in cold soy milk and then hold over your eyes. Soy is an anti-inflammatory and so it will significantly reduce irritation and puffiness. Another trick is, keep your head elevated at night, so sleep with one extra pillow so fluid won’t gather under your eyes.

Dry hair If your hair has been feeling a little dry lately, try a natural deep conditioner. Massage warm olive oil through your hair and scalp and then cover your head under a plastic cap. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes and then wash out. You can do this before or after your shampoo or-you can even skip the shampoo all together since shampoo can be very drying and simply condition your hair.

Lighter hair Do you want lighter hair but you don’t want to buy any products from the store? Try using lemon on your hair instead. Mix 1 cup of lemon juice (or 4 lemons) with 1/4 cup of warm water. Put the mixture into a spray bottle and spray your hair until it’s damp. Then sit out in the sun for 45-an hour and wash out with a nice conditioner. This is great for lighter hair (like blondes, etc.). It may not work for those with darker hair (like brunette’s) but you can try it at your own risk!
