Natural Body Recipes
Eye Make-up Remover: Mix one tablespoon of castor oil with one tablespoon olive oil, jojoba oil, or coconut oil. Wipe the mixture on with a tissue, wait a minute or so, then wipe.
Facial Scrub: Put uncooked oatmeal through the blender, but stop before it is a powder. Wet your face and hands with warm water, massage the oatmeal over your wet skin, then rinse with cool water.
Facial Mask: Add two tablespoons of honey to half a cup of uncooked oatmeal, and apply this to your face. Rinse off after a half hour.
Nail Whitener: Dip your fingers into a small dish of hydrogen peroxide. Rinse your fingers afterwards.
Facial Cleanser: Add 1-1/2 teaspoons of lemon juice to 1/2 cup of yogurt (plain); and add 1 tablespoon of jojoba, coconut oil or olive oil. Mix well before using, and rinse well afterwards.
Age Spot Lightener #1: Dab areas with undiluted Natural Apple Cider Vinegar and leave on overnight. You can add a bandage to keep the area moist longer.
Age Spot Lightener #2: Mix Natural Apple Cider Vinegar with an equal amount of lemon juice and apply. Don't rinse it off.
Pimple Remover #1: Dab white toothpaste (not gel) or Milk of Magnesia directly onto pimple before bedtime, giving it time to dry. Keep on overnight. A pimple that is just an itch or pain under the skin will go away. A new pimple will shrink and may even be gone by morning. (See more in the "Pimples" section on our home remedies site.)
Pimple Remover #2: Wash and rinse your face before bedtime. Onto damp skin, dab a mixture of one part Natural Apple Cider Vinegar and three parts water with a cotton ball. Don't rinse this off. Your skin will be super soft, and much clearer by morning. A forehead full of very small blemish bumps should be all clear in one or two days. (See more on Acne on our home remedies site.)

Deodorant #3: A tablespoon of baking soda mixed with a teaspoon of cornstarch. Put on damp skin.
