This nourishing conditioner is easy and super inexpensive to make. Combine 5 Tbsp plain or vanilla yogurt with an egg white. Beat the egg white and then gradually add the yogurt until blended.

Unscented Lip Gloss and Cinnamon Lip Plumper

Unscented Lip Gloss and Cinnamon Lip Plumper

You don't have to wish your lips looked bigger with this fast fix. Just add eight drops of pure cinnamon essential oil to sheer, unscented lip gloss. The cinnamon increases blood flow to your lips and makes them look plumper. Please note to never apply the oil directly to your lips as it will burn them.

Rubber Bands Fix a French Manicure Fast

Rubber Bands Fix a French Manicure Fast

If your new French manicure already has a little peeling or missing polish, don't panic. Take a small rubber band and wrap it around your finger so that it covers the half of the nail you wish to keep clean. Touch up or repaint the top other section, then remove the rubber band, and voila!

Baby Powder Your Lashes

Baby Powder Your Lashes

If you love long, full lashes but hate the hassle of fake eyelashes, just grab some baby powder and a cotton swab. Apply a coat of mascara, then dip the cotton swab into a little baby powder and run it gently across your eyelashes. Apply a second coat of mascara to get it to stick and achieve gorgeous lashes with minimal effort.

Apple Cider Vinegar Astringent

Apple Cider Vinegar Astringent

Forget about spending big bucks on store-bought facial astringents. Dab some apple cider vinegar into a cotton ball and sweep it over your face. Its natural cleansing properties will help prevent acne and may help clear up existing pimples. You can also rinse your hair with it after shampooing to remove build-up.

Double Duty Makeup

Double Duty Makeup

If you're out of eyeshadow but have plenty of blush, use a neutral or light tone in place of eyeshadow. When your eyeliner tube is empty, just dip a thin makeup brush into your mascara tube and achieve the same look as liquid eyeliner. Foundation that's a shade too light can double as concealer; just dab some onto a makeup sponge and blend.

Strawberry and Baking Soda Teeth Whitener

Strawberry and Baking Soda Teeth Whitener

Make an all-natural teeth whitener for a lot less with a medium or large strawberry and a teaspoon of baking soda. Mash the strawberry up and mix it with the baking soda. Dip your toothbrush in and brush your teeth. Let the mixture sit on your teeth for five minutes, then brush with toothpaste and rinse. Use this once a week.

Conditioner for Shaving Legs

Conditioner for Shaving Legs

Shaving dry legs leads to razor burn and an increased risk of cuts. For those times when you're out of shaving gel, use hair conditioner. It keeps your legs smooth and protects them from the blades like a shaving gel but still allows for a closer shave.

Polka Dot Polish

Polka Dot Polish

Nail art is all the rage, especially polka dots on fingernails. The easiest way to get this look yourself is to paint your base coat and then place the end of an adhesive bandage with holes on each nail. Dab a bit of another color polish over each hole, allow it to dry, and then carefully peel the bandages off to reveal easy small polka dots with minimal hassle.

Petroleum Jelly for Super Soft Feet

Petroleum Jelly for Super Soft Feet

Your feet can get dry and cracked no matter what season it is. To prevent this dryness and help heal the cracking, apply a thick coat of petroleum jelly to the bottom of your feet before bedtime. Cover your feet with clean, white cotton socks and leave them on overnight. In the morning, your feet will be soft and feel infinitely better.

Lighten with Lemon

Lighten with Lemon

Lemons are an excellent way to lighten your hair and get rid of skin discolorations. Mix equal parts lemon juice and water in a spray bottle, then spritz it on your hair before you go into the sun. To lighten age spots, dab some lemon juice onto the spots with a cotton swab once a day three times a week. Lemon juice takes longer than commercial products, so be patient for results.
