The simpler the beauty recipe, the more likely we are to take the time to use it. We’ve rounded up the 10 of our best one-ingredient natural beauty tips for your skin and hair.
1. Apple Cider Vinegar Face Mask
Using raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar and a cotton swab, this ingredient can be a peel to treat sun spots and pigmentation. Just leave it on for 5 minutes, then rinse with warm water and you’ve just given yourself an exfoliating treatment.
2. Avocado Wrinkle Treatment
The inside of the avocado skin that sits closest to the skin’s edge is full of rich nutrients and is the perfect choice for an anti-wrinkle eye treatment. Just mash it and apply to the orbital rim for 10-15 minutes. This ingredient can also work double duty as a scalp mask as well!
3. Rose Water Toner
Rose water is a great toner for dry skin. Just add it to a spray bottle and you’ve got the most convenient way to neutralize the skin before you apply moisturizer.
4. Sea Salt Scalp Scrub
Adding a little bit of sea salt and gently rubbing it into your scalp can absorb excess oil and help add some volume to your hair.
5. Milk Exfoliator
Massaging plain whole milk into your skin is an exfoliating treatment that can help slough off dead skin cells and reveal fresh, new cells at the surface.
6. Coconut Oil Make-Up Remover
Try this as an easy and inexpensive eye makeup remover. All you’ll need is a cotton ball and some coconut oil. It will not only remove eye makeup, but will also coat and strengthen lashes.
7. Champagne Hair Rinse
Not your typical beauty ingredient, but a glass of champagne poured all over your hair from roots to ends will boost shine.
8. Honey Cellulite Massage
Honey is the sole ingredient for this anti-cellulite treatment. Just two teaspoons on your problem areas and use dry hands to drag the honey back and forth repeatedly. This 5-10 minute massage with increasing pressure will help force circulation to the area, bringing nutrients and oxygen with it.
9. Epsom Salt Sore Muscle Bath
Add a cup of Epsom salt to a warm bath to relieve sore muscles, soften skin and help detoxify the body.
10. Aloe Vera Sun Burn Soother
Fresh aloe vera gel can ease the discomfort and pain caused by sunburns.
