Want your hair to smell as nice as it does when you leave the salon? Spray some perfume on your hairbrush before brushing your hair. Your hair will smell nice throughout the day.
#14 Pearly-white Teeth
Strawberries and baking soda can do wonders for your teeth. Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 1 teaspoon of crushed strawberries and use it twice a month to get pearly whites.
#13 Blemish-free complexion
To achieve a clear complexion, black masks are used in salons. Well, here’s how you can make your own version at home. Grind and mix 2 tablespoons of activated charcoal with 1.5 tablespoons of gelatin dissolved in warm water. Heat the mixture in your microwave oven until it gets a jelly-like consistency. Apply on your face for 30 minutes and voila, even-toned skin!
To ease the redness from a sunburn, simply mix a solution of baking soda with water and mix until it forms a thin paste, then spread it on your face for 10-15 minutes. Its alkaline properties will help soothe your skin and its antiseptic properties will help stop the itch.
#11 Even-toned Armpits
Grate some potatoes and apply to your armpits as a compress for half an hour. This will lighten the skin in the armpits.
#10 Stronger Nails
To strengthen nails, mix coconut oil and honey in equal proportions and add a few drops of lavender oil. Apply regularly on your nails. Preserve this in an empty nail polish bottle.
#9 Anti-cellulite wrap
To get rid of cellulite from your belly, sides, hips, and arms, mix 2 tablespoons of ground ginger with 5 tablespoons of cosmetic clay and 10 tablespoons of warm water. Apply on the affected areas, wrap with plastic wrap and leave for an hour. Follow up with a warm shower. Use once a week for best results.
In an empty, washed mascara bottle, add some aloe vera juice, castor oil, and Vitamin E. Apply the mixture with a mascara brush before going to bed every day for one month to get noticeable results.
#7 Grease-free Hair
To tackle the grease in your hair, add 2-3 tablespoons of sea salt or table salt to your shampoo for an oil-free scalp and roots.
#6 Under-eye circles
Mix used coffee grounds in a 1:1 ratio with coconut oil and massage for 15 minutes under your eyes. 3-4 times a week will get good results.
#5 Smooth Legs and Arms
Make your own wax at home by mixing one-quarter cup lemon juice with 2 cups of sugar and warm the mixture in ¼ glass of water. When the mixture turns golden, remove from heat and let cool. Apply on arms and legs against hair growth. With the use of pieces of rough cloth like denim, remove the wax sharply to reveal fresh, clear skin free from ingrown hair.
Removing blackheads from your nose and chin couldn’t get any easier. Just mix 1 teaspoon of warm water, 1 tablespoon flour and 1 teaspoon of honey. Use a cotton pad or a piece of cloth to apply to the affected areas. Leave for 10-15 minutes to get a blackhead-free face.

To get baby-soft heels, make a foot soak with 2 cups warm water, 1/2 cup baking soda, and 1 cup vinegar. Soak your feet for 15-20 minutes, then dry with a towel and apply moisturizing cream.

Make your own freshening facial spray by mixing aloe gel with purified water in a 1:3 ratio. Put this mixture in a spray bottle and mist some on your face whenever necessary.
