Super beauty weapons in your home
THERE’S no need to spend big on expensive beauty products that claim to correct, smoothen and firm your skin. With a simple dig around your house, you can find ingredients perfect for every beauty problem you’re struggling with.
Use lemons for brighter skin:
Blemishes, uneven skin tone and age spots can be hard to get rid of. While there are products that can assist in brightening your skin, they can be pricey. Lemons are great for fading dark marks and evening out blemishes. Dab a little lemon juice on your problem areas every day and in a few weeks you will see improvements.
Use baby powder as a dry shampoo:
Dry shampoo is a must for every woman on the go as it instantly freshens up your hair. For a DIY option, sprinkle some baby powder onto your roots and the grease-prone areas of your hair. The baby powder soaks up excess grease, lifting the roots. Plus, your hair will smell amazing.
By now everyone’s heard about the many benefits of coconut oil. A lesserknown use of the miracle oil, called Oil Pulling, is an ancient practice for whitening your teeth. Swish a teaspoon of coconut oil around in your mouth, pull and spit continuously until all is out.
Use broken powders to highlight:
Beauty products often emphasise highlighting and shimmering everything from your cheeks to your body. If you have any broken powders, blushes, or eyeshadows add baby oil for a tinted body oil or a creamy, dewy cheek.
Honey and sugar helps to exfoliate:
Exfoliating gets rid of dead skin cells and leaves you with a beautiful glow. For a DIY exfoliant, mix sugar with a little honey and any type of oil ( coconut, olive, etc.) and use it to scrub off any dead cells.
Tea is always a good idea but it’s not only for drinking. Take a used tea bag and rest it on puffy eyes to de-
puff. Additionally, it’s great as an anti-redness remedy to soothe and calm the skin.
Use a tissue to get rid of static:
Static is caused when there’s not enough moisture in your hair and can make styling your locks super annoying. This can be solved by placing a tissue over your hair brush.

Perfumes are sometimes expensive and at times the scent fades throughout the day. Rub a little vaseline onto your pulse points before spraying to make your fragrance last longer.
