We have tried these homemade beauty remedies and they actually worked

You have seen homemade beauty remedies on Pinterest and various social media. You have heard people testify them.

Yet, you have never tried them yourself.

Fret not, here are some homemade beauty remedies tried and tested by KajoMag:

1. Coconut oil as hair mask

Massage your scalp with coconut oil before going to bed. Rinse out with shampoo the next morning.

Continue this routine for weeks and you will notice that your hair will become less frizzy.

Coconut oil helps to moisturise and smoothen hair.

2. Butter as lip conditioner

If you have chapped lips, this is the most simple and cheapest homemade beauty product for you.

Before going to bed, apply a thin layer of butter on your lips. (Yes, you read right.) Even margarine will do.

Be prepared to wake up with soft and luscious lips.

Besides butter, coconut oil is also good for dry and cracked lips. Apply it on your lips several times a day.

3. Homemade nose pore strip

All you need is one egg white and a paper towel.

Dip the paper towel into the egg white and place it on your nose. Then wait for it to dry.

The best part of this homemade beauty product is that it is affordable and it works.

The disadvantages of using this? You have to bear with the smell of egg while waiting for it to dry. Plus, it takes longer than your usual store-bought nose pore strip. But think of the savings!

Use white egg to make your own homemade nose pore strip.

4. Apple cider vinegar facial toner

First of all, this homemade beauty product is not suitable for everybody, especially those with sensitive skin.

However, for some, apple cider vinegar works wonders as a facial toner.

You can find many different ratios of apple cider vinegar to water mixtures online.

If you are not sure which ratio works best with you, start with one part apple cider vinegar to four parts water first.

Then slowly adjust the ratio according to your preference.

Apply the toner to your cleansed face with a cotton pad, avoiding the eye area.

After several weeks, your face should feel smoother and tighter.

5. Foot scrub

The basic formula for homemade scrub is one cup of white or brown sugar and a quarter cup of olive, almond or coconut oil.

Simply try to mix and match your own ingredients with your preferred essential oil.

We have tried mixing one cup of white sugar and a quarter cup coconut oil with a few drops of lavender essential oil.

Our verdict: the smell of coconut may overpower the lavender but it scrubs away dead skin just fine.

Other concoctions you can try are brown sugar, olive oil and orange essential oil or white sugar, olive oil and peppermint essential oils.
