Caused by dry skin that traps the hair, ingrowns are pain to have and a bigger pain to get rid of. But this easy-to-make treatment
will help remove the hairs and prevent future ones from growing. The key: tea tree oil. This ingredient can minimize common
side effects of shaving and waxing such as bumpiness and burning, which will keep ingrowns at bay.

Suffering from dry winter (or year-long) skin? Then we suggest trying this DIY milk bath. Though the ingredients—milks and
oatmeal— may resemble your typical morning meal, they are miracle workers when it comes to treating dry skin. Milk's lactic
acid removes dead skin cells, making skin smooth and supple, while the oatmeal acts as an anti-inflammatory ingredient that
relieves dryness. So give it a try and if you don't like it, use the remaining ingredients for tomorrow's breakfast!

Reduce puffiness and refresh eyes with this easy, DIY eye nourisher. Made from items found in your pantry, this treatment
will bring the life back into your baby blues (or greens, browns, hazels). The cucumber takes care of the puffiness, while
the honey attracts and retains moisture, which keeps your skin hydrated, glowing and wrinkle-free.

Get rid of chapped lips with this two-ingredient, homemade lip scrub. Sugar, the main ingredient, provides gentle exfoliation.
This removes dead skin and encourages cell renewal, which increases luminosity and circulation (aka smooth lips). Honey, the
other ingredients, acts as a moisturizer to prevent future dryness. As an added bonus, you can easily use this treatment to
sweeten your tea!

Trying to make the blowout last a little longer? Running late with no time to shower? For moments like these, whip up some

hair smell amazing.

We’re supposed to wash our make up brushes, but let’s face it—they’re often neglected for months on end, which makes them
a breeding ground for bacteria (could that be the cause of your breakouts?). Luckily, this cheap cleaner is easy to make and
even easier to use. Whip it once a month to give your brushes this cleaning they deserve.

Measure 2 tbsp. of coconut oil into a microwave-safe dish and zap for a few seconds until it is liquid. Mix with two cups
of water and a couple squirts of face wash. You can add more water if you feel the need to. Personally, I add 2 cups, then
if they dry out, I add a little more.
Soak the paper towels in the solution. I chose Viva because they’re absorbent. DO NOT use a cheap paper towel or they will completely fall apart. You can also cut the paper towels in half with a knife if you’d like to or buy the towels that are perforated into smaller sheets.
