 Want to have that "spa experience" without spending a ton of money? 
Then head to your kitchen and try these fun and organic beauty tips.

Items You Will Need:
Real Mayonnaise, Bananas, Honey, Baking Soda, Cucumbers, Lemons

How to Make Your Own Deep Conditioner
You will need:

Yes, mayonnaise. My mother swears by it. It's very simple actually, all you do is work the mayonnaise into your hair and wrap a plastic grocery store bag over it. Leave it on for 30 minutes and then make sure to wash out fully. The mayonnaise will act as a deep conditioner that you will not have to do as often. Trust me- you will look silly, but it is worth it.

How To Make Your Own Face Mask
You will need:
1 small Banana
1 tablespoon of Honey

Smash up a banana and mix will 1 tablespoon of honey. Rub the mixture over your face to create a face mask. Leave on for 30 minutes and Voilà- a natural anti-wrinkle face mask!

How To Refresh Your Eyes
What you will need:
1 Cucumber

If you are doing your own spa treatment, you can't forget the cucumbers! Cucumbers help with puffiness so slice one up and put over your eyes. Save the rest for a salad!

How To Tone Your Skin

Lemons are a natural toner. Squirt on your face after your banana face mask. Lemons can also be used to help lighten age spots.

How To Whiten Your Teeth
1 teaspoon of baking soda, pinch of salt, teaspoon of water

Mix the baking soda, water and a pinch of salt to create a paste. Brush over your teeth to help brighten them up a bit. Baking soda can be harsh on teeth if done too often, so only do it once of a month or so.

There you go! An easy and refreshing spa from your kitchen! If you have other ideas, leave a comment!

  1. Those are some great tips. I've been on a tighter budget these days and could really use some cheaper beauty care methods. More and more I'm finding out great uses for lemons. I always knew they were good for the skin when eaten, but I didn't know they were good for the skin on the outside too!

  2. The lemons are new to me, as are bananas and honey! Thanks for the reminder that one can use natural ingredients in other ways, too!
