Beauty tips and tricks: Raid the fridge and larder for home remedies
Great home-made face and body exfoliators are right at your fingertips
I started making my own beauty products because I was broke. I found that my skin improved and I actually started getting compliments about my skin, so I believe I must be doing something right.
A really good home-made face exfoliator:
1tsp turmeric powder
The yoghurt is soothing and the turmeric powder is detoxing and will clear out all those blocked pores.
A home-made body exfoliator:
2 handfuls sea salt
3tbs olive oil
Scrub all over problem areas then shower off. I also use this recipe as a hand exfoliator. Cheaper and more effective than any shop-bought scrub.
A cheap alternative to Bio Oil is Rescue Oil, which you can get in some discount stores. Put it around those pesky crow’s feet at night.
