We get it: you’re a poor college student who doesn’t have a lot of money to spend on expensive beauty products. Trust us, we know how it is. But there truly is no need to stress because some of the best skincare secrets can be found right in your fridge and pantry, you just need to know how to use them.
Not only is digging into your cooking supplies quick and easy, what you’ll find in the grocery store is way better for your beauty routine than chemical-laden, overly done products. Just check out our guide below for our six favorite beauty hacks that are good enough to eat.
Apple Cider Vinegar: Not only is ACV amazing for your metabolism if you mix a couple teaspoons with an 8 oz. glass of water, it can make hair look radiant by removing product buildup. Simply rinse your hair with a cup of the stuff once a week before washing, and your locks will be noticeably more bouncy and light.
Coconut Oil: We already told you about the magic of coconut oil, but here’s a little reminder in case you needed one. Not only is it our favorite body moisturizer, it can also work wonders for hair. Don’t be afraid to use liberally!
Raw Honey: Winter skin got you down? Instead of spending loads of cash on a mask, make your own. Raw honey hasn’t been pasteurized, so it’s packed with antioxidants that will make your skin happy and moisturized. Spread it on your face and let it sit for 15 minutes.
Green Tea: Run out of your favorite toner? No problem, just brew some green tea, add a spritz of lemon, pour into a spray bottle and store in the fridge.
Potato: No time or money for a pedicure? Grab a raw potato, slice in half and dip it in sea salt. Use it to scrub off that nasty dead skin and calluses from your feet.
Milk: If your skin is ultra dry, milk makes a great cleanser once in awhile. Just splash it on your face, rinse and go.
