There are a thousand and one natural alternatives to the chemical packed beauty products that you use. And the good news is that you can make them yourself and at a fraction of the cost.

Underlisted are three natural recipes that you can make yourself:

Face Mask:

Are you prone to acne breakouts? This mixture will give you a gentle but effective face mask to help prevent acne.

  • 1 teaspoon lemon
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Add lemon juice, honey and baking soda to a small bowl. Mix well and apply over the face and neck. Avoid the area near your eyes (lemon juice and honey will both sting). After 15 minutes, remove the mask with warm water, then with cold water.

Lip Scrub

We seldom pay attention to our lips. Many people hide their chapped lips under heavy coats of vaseline or lipsticks. This mixture will leave your lips feeling soft and supple.

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon organic honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon lukewarm water

Start by mixing the coconut oil and honey. Add the brown sugar and the lukewarm water to this mixture. Rub the mixture on your lips in a circular motion for two to three minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water.

Hair Mask

  • 1 to 2 overripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Blend the bananas very smoothly, until there are absolutely no chunks or teeny banana pieces.

Add the honey and coconut and olive oil to your delicious mixture and blend again. Slather the smoothie into your hair, and let it settle and sink into your scalp for at least five minutes.

Thoroughly rinse the mixture out with warm water. Afterwards, take your time to comb through your hair. You want to make sure you have removed any pieces you may not have blended thoroughly. Do a final rinse.
