There are thousands of beauty products manufactured every day. However, the best skin care product for you might already be hiding in your kitchen pantry. Some of these items can be good for your tummy as well as your skin.
Women regularly spend thousands of dollars on beauty products that are tested on animals and processed with chemicals. Luckily, you can use items in your own kitchen so you can save more cash and still have an effective skin-care routine. Swap out those expensive creams and serums for these awesome beauty hacks.
Collect Coffee Grounds For An Energizing Body Scrub
We already know that coffee can give you an instant perk every morning. But don’t throw out the coffee grounds just yet. You can still use it as a body scrub to slough off dead skin. In addition to that, caffeine can reportedly lessen the appearance of stretch marks. Mix it up with coconut oil to create a wonderful body scrub.
Swap Out Your Makeup Remover With Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is probably the best item both for food and beauty. You can slather it all over yourself as it makes a great moisturizer. It’s also really effective at gently removing makeup without leaving your skin dry.
Soothe Irritated Skin With Greek Yogurt
The lactic acid in Greek yogurt makes it an excellent exfoliant that reduces wrinkles and fine lines. It can also soothe sunburn and is an awesome natural face mask.

Avocados aren’t just good for healthy snacking. Combine avocado with honey and rolled oats to make a moisturizing face mask.
