Just ran out of your miracle eye cream? No need to panic. Most of your urgent skincare needs can be whipped up in your very own kitchen! Here are some simple DIY recipes for quick and cheap beauty fixes that won’t have you rushing to the mall.
The Dilemma: Under-Eye Bags
The Fix 1: Take an antihistamine, like Claritin (if you have it). Dunk two cotton balls in cold soy milk, squeeze, and hold one over each eye.
The Fix 2: Place a chilled teaspoon under each eye.
The Dilemma: Roughness
The Fix: Mix 1/4 cup Brown sugar and 1/4 cup milk together and rub onto your skin like body wash. Rinse off in the shower.
The Dilemma: Redness
The Fix: Mix 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt with 2 tablespoons of honey. Rub onto your skin, letting it soak for 5-10 minutes before rinsing.
The Dilemma: Enlarged pores
The Fix: Mix equal parts green tea and water. Take a beauty pad or cotton swab and sweep over face like a toner.
