Replace Your Beauty Routine With Natural Alternatives

Have you noticed that the list of ingredients on your shampoo and beauty care products seems to not only be growing longer and longer but now includes words and names which you are sure were completely made up?

If you have, then you aren’t alone. More and more people are starting to move away from these products to natural alternatives. However, there isn’t any real way to know if your product is coming from natural ingredients unless you make it yourself.

Which is something you just can’t do? Right?

Below are some great ways to use the items in your kitchen to replace your beauty regime.

For Those With Oily Hair

When it comes to hair types, oily hair is often considered to be the worst. Largely because the more oily your hair becomes, the more limp and lifeless it looks.

Instead of using harsh chemicals to rid your hair of excess oil, look to your kitchen pantry.

What you will need:

  • A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 7-8 ounces of water

Mix the two together until you reach a consistency which you can wash through your hair and you have just created a great way to remove excess oil from your hair each night which doesn’t include chemicals.

Of course, once you have washed out the oil in your hair it’s important that you wash your hair with clean water to rinse out any residue and odor.

A Facial

How can you say no to a facial? It has to be one of the most relaxing experiences you can have. It’s also a great way to start your night as you head out on the town to show off your recent purchase from the Groupon Coupons page for Vera Bradley.

However, it often also comes with a range of chemicals all designed to peel away imperfections in your skin.

And while they may do a good job, they can often do a harmful job, too.

What you will need:

Mix the items together until you reach a paste which you can easily apply to your skin. Then, take a spoon and smother it all over your face and neck. Now for the best part – relax!

Sit or lay down while the mixture does its job for about 10 minutes before washing it all off with clean water, resisting the urge to eat it as you do. Once this is done, be sure to dry your skin completely before applying any additional lotions you choose to use.

Dry Hair

While the first tip was oily hair, this tip is here to help those with dry hair. While it can seem like the opposite of a problem, dry hair is often unmanageable and packing in volume.

If you are tired of always wearing a hat to keep your hair under control, the answer could be awaiting you in your pantry.

What you will need:

That’s it. That’s all you need. Pour a small amount into the palm of your hands, rub your hands together briefly, and then touch your hair and roots with your fingers and palm, making sure to avoid concentrating on one area of your hair. Additionally, be sure to avoid your scalp as this can lead to clogged pores and potential problems with your scalp.

After about 10 minutes, give your hair a rinse to wash away anything which your hair didn’t absorb and you will be left with much more manageable hair.

Just because you want to look your best doesn’t mean that you have to rely on chemicals to help you fulfill the task.
