BEAUTY HACKS From the Kitchen

09/12/2021

The kitchen isn’t limited to just cooking food. Here’s your reminder that fresh ingredients from the fridge—and pantry—are actually winning concoctions for beauty treatments that you can do at home. So the next time you have an extra half of an avocado (post your morning toast), why not mash it into a hydrating hair mask? Also on our list, a skin-tightening mask made with egg whites (which is said to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines).

We love a good skincare hack where you can find all of the items in your home—an all-natural way to reset your skin with minimal, everyday ingredients.

Head over to your kitchen this weekend and follow these step-by-step instructions on how to have a beauty-focused self-care day that’s budget-friendly. Ready, set, DIY.
