Looking beautiful is any lady’s desire, but there seem to be issues you can’t take care of yourself.

To counter that, Bright Side gathered several secrets that will save you a lot of time and money, while making you look gorgeous.

15. For beautiful hair

If you have greasy hair, simple cooking salt or, even better, sea salt is what you need. Add 2-3 tbsp to your favorite shampoo, and the roots of your hair will stay clean for longer.

14. For thick eyebrows and lashes

Don’t throw out your old mascara bottle. Wash it, and use it to mix together some castor oil, vitamin E, and aloe vera juice. A mascara brush is perfect for applying the mix to your eyebrows and lashes. Do it every night for a month before going to bed.

13. For circles under the eyes

If you like coffee, don’t dispose of spent coffee grounds — they can help keep your eyes fresh. Mix them in a 1:1 solution with coconut oil, and apply to the skin under your eyes for 15 minutes. Apply this mask 3-4 times a week.

12. For a healthy body

It’s possible to make an anti-cellulite wrap even at home. Mix 2 tbsp of ground ginger, 5 tbsp of cosmetic clay, and 10 tbsp of warm water together. Apply the mix to the problem areas (belly, sides, hips, arms), and wrap them with plastic wrap. Leave it all like this for an hour, then unwrap yourself and take a warm shower. Do this once a week.

11. For smooth legs

Sugaring is considered one of the best depilation methods. It’s less painful, doesn’t irritate the skin, and disposes of ingrown or bristle-like hairs. Mix 1/4 of a glass of lemon juice, 2 glasses of sugar, and 1/4 of a glass of water together. Heat the mix on a low heat until it’s golden, cool it down, and apply it to your legs against the hair growth. Then sharply remove the paste.

10. For beautiful and strong nails

A 1:1 mix of coconut oil and honey with a few drops of lavender oil is perfect for strengthening the nails. To make it more convenient, pour it into a used nail polish bottle.

9. For blackheads on your face

If you’re tired of having blackheads on your nose or chin, make a simple mask: mix 1 tsp of warm water, 1 tbsp of flour, and 1 tsp of honey together. Dip a cotton pad or a piece of cloth into this mix, and apply it to the problem zone. Remove after 10-15 minutes.

8. For gorgeous armpits

You can lighten the skin of your armpits with the help of compresses made of raw ground potatoes. Leave them there for half an hour.
