Indulging in high-end brightening creams, sweet-smelling scrubs, and luxurious moisturizers is draining on your wallet and your medicine cabinet. Enjoy a mini spa experience for a few minutes while you brighten, smooth, and polish up your roughest spots, head to a cabinet you’ve already stocked with beauty essentials—we mean your kitchen cabinet. Put a few together and you’ve made yourself a little DIY skin magic.
BAKING SODA AND HONEY CLEANSER
Combine one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of baking soda in your palm. Rub them together with a few drops of water and then massage gently in circular motions on your face. Let sit for a minute then rinse thoroughly with warm water.
BROWN SUGAR SCRUB
Combine two parts milk with one part brown sugar and a few drops of pure vanilla extract (if you have it—if not, omit) in a bowl. In your shower or tub, gently scrub in tiny circles from head to toe. Rinse and bathe normally. For an extra boost of moisture and good-for-you nutrients, add an egg yolk too.
Let us know which one worked best for you!
