1. Minimize Tan Lines
Mix turmeric with milk and spread the mixture over your tan lines. The turmeric helps give you an even complexion.
2. Soothe Chafed Thighs
- corn starch
- coconut oil
- empty deodorant stick
Mix corn starch with coconut oil and pour the mixture into an empty deodorant stick. Allow the mixture to harden and then use the stick to soothe your chafed thighs.
3. Treat Brassy Hair
- basil leaves
Boil a few basil leaves in hot water for about 10 minutes and then add the water to a bowl. Add shampoo, mix everything together, and spread it over your hair. The basil helps remove brassy tones.
4. Natural Self-Tanner
- black tea bags
Let the tea bags steep in hot water for 3 minutes. Add lotion to a bowl and squeeze out the tea bag over the bowl. Now apply your natural self-tanning lotion to your skin. After about 30 days, you'll notice your skin getting more and more tanned.
5. Remove Peeling Skin
Add celery and mint to a blender, spread the ointment over the area where your skin is peeling, and rinse off the paste.
6. Lighten Dark Knees
- peanut butter
- lemon juice
Mix all the ingredients and rub the mixture into your knees to lighten dark spots.
7. Revitalize Dry Hair
