I love DIY beauty treatments. They’re inexpensive, and you most likely have the ingredients at home. What more could you ask for? Now that spring is officially here, it’s time to refresh your hair and skin with life-changing beauty fixes. If you want to add a little bliss to your life, try these five beauty hacks:
For white teeth, try charcoal:
Okay, so you might not have this laying around your house. But, it can be found online or at a store. You’ll need one capsule of activated charcoal when brushing your teeth. Add some with toothpaste on a toothbrush and brush normally. You’ll notice a difference in a few days.
For stretch marks, try coffee grounds:
Coffee scrubs are a great way to remove unwanted stretch marks. Especially for spring, you want to show off your legs with confidence. All you need is leftover coffee grounds and olive oil. Apply on any areas with stretch marks. Repeat this twice a week for effective results.
For blackheads, try gelatin:
This is the first time I’ve heard of this trick. It mimics a DIY version of Biore strips. Mix 1 tbsp Knox Unflavored Gelatin with 2 tbsp of milk in a plastic cup. Microwave mixture for 10 to 15 seconds and apply to face immediately. This will remove impurities on your skin.
For a smooth shave, try Vaseline:
If you want your skin to feel extra smooth for spring, apply a healthy amount on your legs before shaving. This will open your pores while shaving, so you won’t have razor bumps or irritation. It’ll also sink into your skin and moisturize for a better shave.
For shiny hair, try coconut oil:
This is my favorite beauty hack. I apply coconut oil raw to my hair and leave it in for 20 minutes. After, I’ll shampoo my hair as normal and apply a dime-sized amount of conditioner to my hair. My hair looks flawless every time. I try to do this once a month for best results.
