Economical Beauty: Beauty Products From Your Own Kitchen!



Stop looking for the right exfoliants, conditioners and moisturizers in the mall. Go frugal with this list of household beauty products. Who knows? Your favorite beauty product might just be around the corner of your pantry.



1.     Egg yolks as hair gloss

For shiny hair, crack an egg and separate the yolk. Add an ounce of olive oil into the yolk and mix. After shampooing, apply the egg-olive oil mixture to your hair and comb it for an even distribution. Wait for 10 minutes to let the product work its magic. Condition your hair then rinse.



2.     Shortening as moisturizer

Apply shortening in a thin layer on your face as moisturizer. You can also apply it on your heels, elbows, under your eyes and lips for that soft, supple effect. Just a daub of the product will do you good.


3.     Coffee as hair coloring

Instead of using commercial hair dyes, use coffee to bring back the black. Soak or pour it on your newly shampooed hair. Leave it on for 15 minutes then, as usual, rinse. With this, you wouldn’t need to worry what chemicals would sip in through your scalp because there are none!


4.     Avocado as moisturizing and anti-aging mask

Mix mashed avocado, the oil from a vitamin E soft gel, a tablespoon of honey and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper to create homemade anti-aging mask. 

Avocado alone will make a good home-based moisturizing mask. Leave it on for 15 minutes and feel the immediate results.


5.     Baking soda as toothpaste, firming mask and facial scrub

We already told you about this product and it has brought wonders.

For home-based toothpaste, mix a quarter-cup of baking soda, 5 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide and some mint extract for taste.

To make a firming mask, beat an egg and sprinkle a tablespoon of baking soda. Apply mixture on face and let it dry for 10 minutes. Wash it off with warm water then a splash of cold water to close the pores.



Clean your pores by mixing a tablespoon of baking soda and raw sugar. Gently rub the concoction on your face prioritizing the t-zone. Leave it for 1-2 minutes then rinse.
