Here is a list of beauty products right out of your kitchen cupboard. 

Cooking oil

It sounds corny but cooking oil works wonders for your skin and hair.  Natural & organic oils tend to contain antioxidants, restore skin’s elasticity, rich in fatty acids which are key in maintaining or obtaining maximum skin health, eliminate skin infections and improve skin conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea, soothe the skin and delays ageing process. Use olive, rosehip and sweet almond if you’ve very dry skin.  Rapeseed, avocado, sunflower and coconut oils are good for dandruff and mild scalp irritations.

Use: gently massage the oil into your skin for 5 minutes and use a warm face towel to steam your face and to get rid of the excess oil. Don’t forget to close your pores by using cold water


Angelina Jolie & Jennifer Love Hewitt like to heal their blemishes by applying a dab of toothpaste to the pimple overnight. The toothpaste helps to dry and heal the skin quickly, so that often time, by morning the blemish is almost gone. Beware it leaves a dark mark on your skin. I use toothpaste now and then to banish those nasty painful pimples that won’t go away and it works. Some toothpaste contains silica which fights against the breakout of the kind of inflammation that leads to spots. If your toothpaste contains fluoride which is an irritant, leave it on for no more than 5-10 minutes.

Lemon Juice

People apply lemon juice as an astringent and toner – it’s full of antioxidants and can be used to exfoliate and brighten the skin. The natural citric acid can also tighten pores. 

Use: wash your face, get fresh lemon and peel it like you’d peel an orange. Remove a segment, break and crush it and wipe the liquid onto your skin it may sting, don’t worry about the stinging, no matter how much it stings; it doesn’t damage your skin. Lemon juice is damage-less pain, a safely ignorable pain. Let the lemon juice dry Leave the juice there for the whole day, or overnight. (There shouldn’t be any visible difference! It’s a non-sugary liquid, unlike orange juice). If you have a very inflamed skin, then you should do this twice a day. Once in the morning, and once before sleep. Make sure you wash your skin before each time you put it on! If it’s not so bad, then once a day is OK.


Honey is an ingredient used in many nourishing body and facial products. Honey has antibacterial as well as antiseptic effect so it can help reduce pimples. Honey can also be use on hair to give it a health shine.
