There are times when I’m unsatisfied with a beauty product (ahem, see my last post) and seek more natural  - and sometimes, edible – alternatives. I know many of you feel the same way, which is why I’ve compiled a list of my favorite DIY beauty hacks to share with you. I have tried all of these beauty tips and every single one works. Enjoy! And don’t forget to let me to know if these tips work for you. Feel free to share your DIY tips in the comments or tweet me @stylecontext.

SKINCARE:    

1. Pore Refining Face Mask:  1 egg white + 1 tbsp honey

Directions: to tighten pores, mix together 1 egg white with 1 tbsp honey. Lather on clean face and keep on for 20 minutes. Rinse with cool water.

HAIR CARE: 

2. Pre-shampoo Moisturizing Mask:  1 tbsp olive oil + 1 egg + 1 tsp honey

Directions: lather mask through wet hair and cover with shower cap. Leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with shampoo. Eggs provide hair with protein, an essential component for strengthening strands, and olive oil and honey provide moisture and shine.

BODY: 

3. Leg Exfoliator: 1/2 cup olive oil + 3 tbsp lemon juice + 1 1/4 cup sugar

Directions: mix ingredients. Lather on legs before shaving.

4. Wax Remover:  baby oil + aloe vera

Directions: apply baby oil to wax residue. Follow up with aloe vera to decrease redness.

5. Moisturizer: coconut oil

FACE: 

6. Reduce Under Eye Circles: cucumber + green tea (cool)

Directions: soak 2 thin slices of cucumber in cold green tea. Leave on eyes for 10-15 minutes. As an antioxidant, green tea helps protect eyes from aging.

7. Eyebrow Growth: castor oil

Directions: apply a dime-sized amount of castor oil to areas you want to promote hair growth. P.S.: Want Cara Delevingne’s eyebrows? See my how-to post.
