4. Fresh Herbs
Fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme have some surprising benefits. Add some to your homemade beauty products today!
Avoiding sugar is good for your insides, but you might want to keep a bag of sugar in your pantry for whipping up beneficial homemade beauty products!
Too much salt is also a dietary no-no, but don’t toss that shaker! Salt is a great addition to your DIY beauty routine!
Like lemons, grapefruit’s acidity is great for achieving healthy, glowing skin.
Tomatoes are packed with skincare benefits. You can use tomatoes to create face scrubs and a cooling toner.
9. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil makes a nice, creamy base for all sorts of DIY beauty recipes, and it smells yummy to boot.
