10 Homemade Beauty Tricks
â€œBeauty Is Dutyâ€
Few women are born blessed with all the beauty while some put in lots of efforts to become as beautiful as they desire, but there is one thing with which you all will certainly agree, that to maintain beauty you need to care for it and maintain it like it is your duty or else the beauty shall gradually be gone, leaving behind dull, aged you.
Women spend oodles of money to care for their beauty especially when it comes to skincare, while few products work but the maximum products sold for maintain beauty are nothing more than chemical laden beauty gimmicks.
I am really tired of hitting on every new product with a hope and then being left with the same old story, no change or should I say no miracle, like how many brands advertise.
How about some homemade beauty tips??? Rather we should day homemade beauty tricks, since these homemade DIYs are really nice, effective and are personalized tricks which need not huge bucks investment. Many cosmetic brands have time and again tricked us, so let us show them our tricks that are cheap, free from chemicals and really work.

Aloe Vera Cleanser
This cleanser can be used by all skins, but this will benefit dry skins the most. To make aloe vera cleanser you need to take aloe vera gel, rose water and olive oil in the ratios of 3:3:5 respectively, a quantity of 30ml, 30ml and 50ml would be great. Blend all the ingredients together and add in 4 drops of rose essential oil and 2 drops of grapefruit extract. Store it in a small bottle and refrigerate. Shake before use, as the ingredients may separate. Massage into your face and remove with water.
Honey Lip Scrub

Cucumber Honey Toner
This toner not only hydrates the skin but also reduces puffiness. Take one medium sized cucumber and 2 tsp of honey. Peel and cut up cucumber, then puree the pieces in a blender. Set a lined sieve with cheesecloth over a glass bowl or measuring cup. Pour the cucumber puree through the sieve and let it stand for 15 minutes for the juices to drip into the bowl. Pour the clear juice into a clean bottle and add honey. Shake the bottle and saturate a cotton pad with the lotion to use this toner. Sweep over face, neck and chest morning and night, and let it air dry this will take around 3 to 4 minutes. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Coffee And Sugar Body Scrub
Exfoliate your skin with a luxurious, DIY body scrub; Â For this you will need to stir together brown sugar crystals, ground coffee, and olive oil. Massage over your body before showering or bathing to scrub away dead skin cells and to reveal a gorgeous, radiant glow.

Grind all the ingredients together and make a smooth, fine powder. Pour into a clean, airtight container or re-sealable plastic bag. To use, pour 1/2 cup into your bath as you fill the tub for a soothing bath treat.

Green Tea Toner

Spray toner directly on clean, just-washed skin and pat it in (or apply it with a clean cotton ball).
Skin Firming Clay Mask
To refine pores, calm and protect skin try this DIY skin firming mask. Take 1 tbsp filtered water, prepared green tea (for anti-aging benefits) or milk (for sensitive/dry skin), 2 tbsp fine clay powder. Add water, green tea, or milk to a small bowl. Gradually add fine clay powder to the liquid, stir continuously to prevent clumps and form a smooth paste. You can add more water to get desired consistency. Apply a thick layer of the paste to clean, dry skin, avoiding the eyes and lips. Relax and be still for 10 to 12 minutes while the mask dries (so the clay doesn’t crack and fall off). Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Follow with a natural toner and a light moisturizer to soften and nourish skin throughout the day.
