Homemade Beauty Treatments

I've read this homemade beauty treatment from a magazine. I find it helpful especially that nowadays beauty products are expensive and can be draining on our budget. So why not give a try in this so simple homemade beauty treatments. :)

1. You can prepare your own facial toner by combining eight ounces of mineral water with two drops essential oil, like peppermint or lavender. Refrigerate your concoction for an invigorating skin boost.

2. If you need remedy for your dry hair, mix a teaspoon of almond oil with one mashed ripe banana. Massage it on to dry or damp hair. Leave on for 20 minutes before rinsing off thoroughly.

3. If you have problems with oily hair, mix one part of aloe vera gel with an equal amount of shampoo. Add a teaspoon of lemon juice before shampooing on to your hair.

4. For pearly white, squeaky clean teeth, use a mixture of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide as your toothpaste once a week. This is effective in removing stains and plaque.
