Summer is the best time to relax, unwind and LOOK GORGEOUS (even while on quarantine!)
With so much time on your hands with this lockdown, you will be able to focus on getting pretty WITHOUT SPENDING so much, thanks to mom’s well-stocked kitchen!
Gather these SIMPLE INGREDIENTS for smooth skin, glossy hair, and refreshed eyes – or check out our store-bought picks that work the same magic.
Give your tresses an extra shine boost by using a mixture of vinegar and water. Vinegar helps clear scalp of gunky buildup from hairstyling products while promoting circulation and coating cuticles with shine.
- Mix a tablespoon of white or apple cider vinegar with one cup of water.
- After shampooing, massage the mixture onto the scalp.
- Leave for one minute, then rinse with cool water.
There you go, shiny hair!
Or if mixing is a bother to you, you can try Yves Rocher Eclat Radiance Rinsing Vinegar.
Smooth Skin All Over
Get rid of bumps and flakes by exfoliating in the shower. Here’s how:
- Mix a handful of salt (or sugar if you don’t want a too-rough scrub) with a few drops of olive oil.
- Rub on damp skin in a circular motion.
The salt and oil scrub helps remove dead skin cells gently and reveals rosy, smooth skin.

Radiant and Glowing Skin
Citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons contain fruit acids that effectively lighten dark spots and help exfoliate and smoothen skin.
Slice the fruit in half and apply it on dark and rough spots like your elbows, knees or ankles. Leave on for a few minutes and rinse.
