There are so many flaws that women want to fix on their bodies today. I don’t find shame in that at all; the one downfall though is the harmful chemicals it takes to erase those flaws. In this post, I will go through some natural remedies that can solve the same problems but with natural ingredients. I have tried some of these and plan on trying all of them, so far, I am just as satisfied as if I were buying a three hundred dollar cream or paying for a one hundred dollar treatment. Let me tell you about these exciting methods to try!
I personally have never tried this but I think they may be on to something with the caffeine in the remedy. Mix half a cup of caffeinated coffee beans and olive oil. All you have to do is put it on your legs on the area you want to treat and then leave it on for a little while. You repeat it about two or three times a week and do it for a few weeks. It may take a few months and you should try to exercise along with it to keep your legs tight but there is a good chance it reduce some cellulite, worth a try.
All you need for this is egg whites. You have to beat them until stiff but then you just apply it under the eyes. Then you let it dry and then and then rinse it off. This would be great for maybe an early morning or if you aren’t getting enough rest.
I know all girls examine their teeth before they have to go to something important. Big dates, important interviews or a wedding or party, sometimes they are not up to par. You can use this remedy for fast teeth whitening and it’s cheap. Just mix mashed strawberry into baking soda and apply it to your teeth. Let it sit on there for a few minutes and then rinse and brush. Instantly whiter teeth, this one is a life saver!
Acne Scars Gone
I have used this one before and it works miracles, literally. Some of you may have bad acne scars left over as a reminder of your teenage breakouts, I can definitely relate. I had never used anything that lightened or clear up the acne scars but this does the trick. The remedy is a cooled down mixture of white, hot tea and apple cider vinegar. All you do is apply it to your face and then let it sit for a half hour. After you rinse it off, you can immediately see the difference. I think it helps restore your pH because it is a perfectly, balanced, pH solution with the vinegar as an acid and the tea as a base.
This remedy is great for the cold, dry, winter months. Mix avocado with honey and let it sit for a few minutes and then wash your face with whatever face wash you use. I have never had smoother skin than after I tried this remedy. I loved it because sometimes moistures can leave your face heavy and greasy, this just soaked right into my skin, I love it!
Gladly, I have not gotten to this stage of my life yet, but it is a great remedy to know for when I do. For all you ladies that have earned your age spots, listen to this little trick. Mix onion juice and apple cider vinegar and apply it to your face, let it sit and then rinse and wash. To get best results do it every day for a few months. It is that simple; this is a great one for men too, especially if they feel uncomfortable about buying age creams and treatments from stores.
Fine Lines and Crows Feet
This one is great, I am already starting to get some lines on my face, so maybe I can eliminate them early, we will see. This one only uses one ingredient so it is not expensive at all. The good thing is that most of the stuff in these remedies are usually already in the kitchen. Take the juice from white grapes and apply where ever the unwanted lines are and then let it sit and then rinse. You have to do it a couple times a week until you get the results that you want.
I have definitely seen how expensive wrinkle creams can get. If you are really worried about wrinkles but can’t afford a cream, try this. I haven’t tried it but it would definitely be worth a try. The preparation for this remedy is a tad weird, soak almonds in milk overnight and then grind or chop the almonds finely and mix that with the milk that it set in to make a paste. Add some honey and apply the paste and let it sit, then rinse it off and do it two to three times a week.
A Sugar Exfoliate
I love exfoliating my skin, there is nothing better and it just reforms your face back to normal. It gets rid of all the dead skin, grease and dirt. This particular one that I like to use is packed with other goodies that revitalize your skin too. You mix white sugar, brown sugar, coconut oil and strawberries. Rub on to face and then rinse off, it get rids of so many impurities, it is truly amazing. The great thing about this is that it is not bad for your face so you can use it almost as much as you would like.
This trick is a great one to have if you need it. Minimizing the pores can almost change the whole appearance of your skin. You can do wonders just by combining egg whites and corn starch; it sounds gross but trust in me it works! Apply to your face and then let it sit for a while. After you rinse it, you will be amazed in the difference. You may want to try it over a sink; it can get a little messy.
Healthy Scalp, Beautiful Hair
I know most girls are obsessed with their hair, I know I am! I get really disappointed in some of the hair products out there. They all just seem to weigh my hair down and don’t give me the shine or the bounce that I want. I am going to tell you a couple different things to try. One thing is egg whites; mix them with some olive oil and a little bit of water. After that massage all over hair and let it sit and then rinse it. I just did this the other day and after my hair dried and I could see the difference, it was unbelievable. Another great one is apple cider vinegar; just put some on your scalp after you shampoo your hair and then rinse it out. If you keep your scalp healthy and vitalized it really will make a world of difference, your hair will be shinier and it will have great body. Another option if you really want to go extreme is washing your hair with no shampoo, I will tell you about the process in a second.
I am actually in the process of starting to do this with my own hair but it takes awhile. I would try to wait for a six month period where you don’t have much going on because it can make your hair a little crazy at first when it is trying to get used to the change of not using shampoo. For shampoo you use baking soda and for conditioner you use vinegar. It sounds weird but it does eliminate all the bad things that products leave in your hair. Also, it doesn’t dry your hair out or weigh it down. It is amazing all around!
I urge all of you girls to at least try a couple of these amazing tips. For all you men out there that are a little adventurous, feel free to try them too! There are many reasons why these remedies are better than buying products but I will leave you with three to think about. One it is less expensive, why spend hundreds of dollars on products when you could grab something out your pantry and get the same results? Secondly, it is better for the environment, all the toxins in the things we buy are affecting us and the environment.
By using natural things, we aren’t emitting any harmful chemicals into the air, land or water. Lastly, it is so much better for you. I can’t even explain to you the amount of difference you will notice. Using these natural remedies we can not only beautify ourselves but also make our bodies healthier. Just give these a try, you won’t be disappointed!
