Natural skin care products are often even more effective than the chemicals packed store bought ones. So let’s take a look at some very useful beauty tips that might help you find out how you can use natural ingredients that are hiding in your kitchen.

1. Brighten skin with turmeric

You can choose to use natural products on your skin, and they are a lot more cost effective and much kinder to your skin than store bought treatments are. Turmeric, for example, is a great antiseptic that will reduce scars and blemishes and lighten the tone of your skin. To use this age old natural skin treatment, mix some turmeric powder into a fine paste with some fresh pineapple juice. Apply the paste to your face and leave it on until it has dried, and it will fight infection, reduce inflammation, and fade any marks or scars you might have.

2. Tone your skin with cucumber

Cucumber is one of the most simple, yet amazing homemade beauty treatments, it has astringent and hydrating properties, all in one neat natural product. You can improve the overall appearance of your skin by simply rubbing your face with thickly cut slices of cucumber. It will rehydrate the skin, remove some of the dead skin cells and leave your skin feeling fresh and looking great.

3. Use teabags to get rid of puffy eyes

When you’ve had a late night, then teabags are the fastest away to reduce puffiness around the eyes and lighten dark circles. Save the teabags when you next have a cup of green tea and chill them in fridge. The caffeine and tannin in teabags act to tighten the skin around the eyes and reduce swelling. Just hold the cooled down teabags over your eyes for ten minutes and your eyes will look wide awake and fresh again.

4. Use olive oil to remove makeup

Olive oil is another one of great homemade beauty treatments, it is just great for removing makeup and it does your skin the world of good too.

5. Try an avocado face mask

The healthy fats in avocado make an ideal skin treatment and celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian are said be regular users of homemade avocado face masks. Mash up the flesh of an avocado and then apply a thin layer all over your face and leave it on for fifteen minutes.
