Beauty Home Remedies
Psst! Some of the best kept beauty secrets are found in the fridge. Here are a few of our favorite beauty home remedies that you can whip up in a pinch.

Great for acne prone skin, milk of magnesia can be applied straight from the bottle to the T-zone. It soaks up excess oil and sooth breakouts and redness. Let it dry for about 5 to 10 minutes and rinse with warm water, or dab a small amount on a cotton ball and sleep in it for an overnight treatment. Keep it in the fridge for a cooling treat.

Sensitive skin types will benefit from a bit of Pepto Bismol, which soothes the skin just like it soothes the stomach. Apply it to your face with a cotton pad and let it dry, then rinse with cool water to feel calm and refreshed.

For soothed, moisturized skin that feels supple and cool to the touch, apply whole egg mayonnaise on your face, straight from the jar. Let it sit for 20 minutes and rinse with cold water. Mayonnaise also works as hair conditioner, although the smell tends to cling to the hair (never use it before a date).

Not just for salads and spaghetti sauce! To tighten and brighten oily skin, mash up a ripe tomato and leave it on your face for 15 to 20 minutes and rinse with warm water.

A ripe banana and some honey is all you need to firm up your face. Mash up the fruit and mix honey until the combination becomes a soft pulp, then apply it all over the face. You can also put this make-it-yourself mask on your breasts to make them feel perkier before a big night out in a revealing dress.

I like all of these ideas! @makeup_addict, is the aspirin mask just crushed up aspirin and water? I'm interested in knowing more. This comment has been removed.

I just tried something last night that I totally need to add to this list: Kitty litter face mask!!! Ahahaha sounds gross...BUT all it is is just bentonite clay!! It's the same stuff that they use at salons/spas! You need to get the fragrance free version tho...or else the fragrance would be pretty bad to put on your face. This comment has been removed.
