DIY Home Hair and Skin Treatments

Here are some of my favorite DIY (do-it-yourself) home hair and skin treatments. Make your own lotions and conditioners and deep-cleaning treatments, naturally, using products in your kitchen!

1) Honey + brown sugar = an exfoliating scrub
These organic ingredients will work together to tighten your pores and retain moisture in your skin.

2) Cinnamon oil = lip plumper
According to Cosmopolitan, cinnamon is the primary common ingredient in lip plumping products, and the pure oil can be used on its own for the same purpose.

3) Pepto Bismol = pimple prevention
Salicylic acid, which is used in acne treatments, is a primary ingredient in Pepto Bismol. Making a Pepto Bismol mask and letting it settle on the face for a while can improve acne.

4) Olive oil = skin moisturizer
Of course oil is a natural solution to dryness, but olive oil in particular contains vitamins A and E which can help to repair damaged skin.

5) Ripe avocado + egg yolk + 1 teaspoon olive oil = dry hair care
Avocado and olive oil contain vitamins beneficial to hair health and growth, while egg yolks contain lecithin and protein, which also strengthen and moisturize the scalp. Stir well and leave in hair for 30 minutes.

6) Coffee grounds + body lotion = cellulite
Applying this combination stimulates circulation and the caffeine in coffee tightens the skin. Leave on problem areas for 30 minutes.
