Don’t think that you have to spend a fortune to have a great skincare routine. There’s plenty of natural options that I’m sure you probably have sitting in your cupboards already. Here’s just a few that I know of or that have been told to me by reader’s as their secret solution!
1. Coconut Oil – Makeup Remover
Probably better than any other type of makeup remover you’ll ever try. Coconut oil is an amazing thing. Use it to cook, to soothe sunburnt skin or to take off your killer eyeliner. With amazing moisturising properties it’s the perfect option for the sensitive eye area.
2. Bi-Carb Soda – Exfoliator
Jacque told me about this one! Apparently a tablespoon of bi-carb soda works a treat as an exfoliator. Think Dermalogica’s micro-exfoliant with a fraction of the price tag.
3. Sugar, Honey & Olive Oil – Body & Lip Scrub
Take 2 tablespoons of honey, 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 cups of sugar. You’ve got yourself enough body scrub for forever! (May not actually last forever, but it’s a heck of a lot of scrub!)
4. Mylanta – Primer
This little secret was shared with me by the brilliant Briellen. For anyone with an oilier skin type, she swears by Mylanta as the perfect skin primer. Simply take a small amount and apply it to the skin after moisturising before applying your foundation. The antacid will fight the oil and apparently your foundation will not move!
