Beauty tips using home and food ingredients #1

Ladies ! !

I had this idea in my head for some time now and I just hope that all like it! I want to share tips and tricks using home ingredients ie ( baking soda, lemons, tea bags ect. ) for day to day beauty.So I'm starting with the first one off with Lemons, not just for helping you get over being sick or sore throats. So here are tips and recipes for beauty stuff you can achieve by using trusty lemons.** Reminder if you don't feel comfortable just washing the dirt off the lemons you can go the organic rout. ♥ KT 

Tip : If your lemons are giving you enough juice or the feel a little to solid, pop them into the microwave for a few minutes. That will help you roll them and get most out of the lemons. 

Home made chemical peel - All you need is about 8 crushed-up uncoated aspirins and about a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice. Mix the two together until you have a smooth paste, then apply in a thin layer on your acne-prone areas. Leave the mask on for about 10 minutes, then rinse away with warm water. Pat to dry. You’ll notice a little tingling and maybe even a little redness from the salicylic acid (the aspirin), but it’ll fade in just a few minutes. Hello clear, healthy-looking skin!

Exfoliate dull skin - In a blender, pulse about ½ cup of uncooked natural oats, then bit by bit, add lemon juice to make a smooth, thick paste. Apply to your face, and allow to dry. Rinse with cool water, then pat gently to dry. Wow, your skin looks terrific!

Itchy scelp -  Mix few tablespoons of lemon juice with little warm olive oil. Gently massage oil your scalp. Keep it 15 minute in your head, then wash with shampoo. 

Cold lemon water - Adding lemon juice or sliced lemons into water. You can also use this in many combinations with  cucumber and mint as well. 

For when your feeling sick or soar throats - If you get sick of drinking tea when your sick. Try this simple lemon water with honey. I like to smash the lemon first on the bottom of the cup before adding the hot water.  Use raw or liquid honey for sweetness stir till combines in cup, this is a simple way to sooth those sore throats. 

Well I hope you like this trial post of this please let me know what you think 
thanks Katie.
