1. Got Zits?

Go and grab that lemon that life just threw at you!

According to Self magazine, “Citric acid, a naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acid, works like an astringent, clearing oil” from the skin. Take a tiny bowl and squeeze some lemon juice into it. Add a teaspoonful of water to dilute slightly. Grab a cotton ball and apply to oily or problem areas. Rinse after 15 minutes with warm water.

2. Olive oil as eye makeup remover.

If you’re like me and you’re using waterproof eyeliner and mascara, you’re going to want to take it off before bedtime. Olive oil on a tissue is a great way to save money and also doesn’t hurt your pretty eyes. No need to buy eye makeup remover anymore. Rinse face with water afterwards.

3. Sugar and Olive Oil

Miix equal parts of sugar and olive oil and stir in a small container. Seal the container afterwards for additional uses. It’s a great st home remedy that helps to exfoliate and moisturizer cuticles, lips, knees, elbows, and feet. I love this one and save money by not having to purchase those pricey sugar scrubs!

4. Pam cooking spray as nail polish quick dry

It takes the place of the aerosol quick drying product that they use at salons to dry the nails. It works just as well. (yep, I tried it and it really DOES work!)

5. UV Damage Face Mask: restore you sun damaged skin without destroying your budget with pricey spa facials. According to Fitness magazine, this at home facial works wonders for over exposed skin
