Women have been interested in numerous ways of staying young and beautiful and enhancing their looks since time immemorial.

Here are a few tips that would help enhancing your beauty the natural way, with guaranteed positive feedback from your mom and grandmother!
Skincare – Use coconut oil to massage your body (preferable at night) to give it a shiny, soft contour. Enhance the massage with scented oils such as lavender or rosemary to add fragrance and extra softness
Scars – Use lemon peel to get rid of scars. Rub a lemon peel over the scar generously and repeat for a few days/weeks. You will be surprised at how fast the scar fades away
Blackheads – Add a bit of oatmeal and honey together and form a paste along with an egg white. Apply this on your blackheads by gently rubbing it over the affected skin and leave for 10-15 minutes. It will loosen your blackheads and make it easier to remove
Split Ends (Hair) – Beat an egg yolk and mix it with some honey and olive oil and massage on hair, wrap in a warm towel and leave for 30 minutes before rinsing
An alternative to shampoo – Use baking soda instead, it will absorb oil and loosen dry skin. It’s also a great remedy for dandruff
Softer Hands – Dip your hands in fresh milk for 5-10 minutes on a regular basis. Your hands will feel softer and will eventually lose all of the wrinkles and calluses from hard work
Eye Soother – Use a mix of cucumber and potato juice in chilled state. Dip it in cotton and place over your eyes and relax for 10-15 minutes. Wash off and apply some coconut or baby oil. It is a great eye soother as well as a stress reliever. Coconut oil also helps to get rid of dark circles over time
Lips – Lemon juice is a great remedy for dark lips. Use it on a regular basis and experience wonderful results
Try these home remedies yourself, improvise where needed and change where necessary to suit your skin tones/contour. You will be amazed at how effective some of these age old beauty secrets are.
