natural Beauty remedies

What is your beauty regimine? Mine is and always will be pretty low key. I am not one to wash my face every night and use a bunch of different products like face washes and exfoliators. I can barley remember to take off my makeup at night……..! I do however have to battle the same beauty issues as most women. Sometimes me teeth need a little whitening, my skin needs a little exfoliating and my hair needs a little damage repair. 😉 Over the years I have come across some pretty crazy claims made by cosmetic companies and marketers. The beauty tips I am about to  give you will not change your life or your face but they will help a little in the area you are wanting to fix. If they don’t work for you, can just put the ingredient back in your kitchen. 😉

This first beauty remedy I love, whiting your teeth with banana peels! So easy and so simple. I used to go out and spend lots of money on those bleach whitening trays. I don’t like the fact that they contain nasty chemicals that end up being swallowed…..GROSS! Now that I know better I will stick to baking soda and banana peels. First dry your teeth, then take a piece of banana peel and rub the inside skin on all of your teeth. Let it sit on your teeth for 10 minutes, then brush it off. For best results, repeat this 7-10 times. I definitely noticed that my teeth were whiter after just the first few times. 🙂

The second beauty remedy is for black heads. I hate the little blackheads that appear on my nose. Honey can help, it acts as a natural antibiotic that helps to pull out the dirt from your pores by clearing the blackheads! 🙂  It also hydrates and tightens the skin pores for a clearer complexion. Honey is also know to be great for nourishing and moisturizing your skin to get a natural shine. Just put some honey on your “problem” area of your face, let sit for 15 minutes, then wash off.

Last but not least, lets talk about dry damaged hair. I defiantly suffer form this problem, after lots of bleach, hot styling tools and chlorinated pools my hair definitely needs some extra TLC. You can go to any hair salon and spend a fortune on expensive hair masks and hair oils or you can go to your panty and grab the coconut oil. To apply the coconut oil, melt 3-5 tbs and then work through your hair form root to tip, combing thru evenly. Leave it on your hair overnight and wash it out in the morning with shampoo! Some benefits for using coconut oil on your hair are:  stimulating hair growth, preventing dandruff,  moisturizes dry hair, adds luster, shine and softness hair, prevents hair breakage and split ends, slows down hair loss. 🙂

I also have some natural beauty products that contain these ingredients in my bathroom.  I love my sugar and coconut body scrub. My green tea face mask is organic and contains raw honey and bee pollen. My coconut milk hair serum has coconut oil, coconut milk and egg whites to help stop hair breakage. I hope one or all of these natural beauty remedies works for you! Have a great weekend.
