Clear skin with Apple Cider Vinegar :
Washing your face daily with Apple Cider Vinegar can help to remove oil, dirt, and other debris. The best way to get your skin as clean as a whistle is to use a face wash or cleanser.

When used as a facial cleanser, apple cider vinegar is an effective way to cleanse the skin of bacteria and debris. To create an all-natural apple cider vinegar face wash from scratch, mix the following:
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • Use apple cider vinegar to gently cleanse instead of harsh soaps or chemicals
The role of toner in skin care is to cleanse and tighten the skin to help protect it from bacteria and other impurities. Apple cider vinegar is an astringent, which can function as a toner when applied to the skin. Mix
  • 1 part apple cider vinegar
  • 2 parts purified water
After using a face wash to cleanse the skin, this mixture can be applied to the face with a cotton pad or ball. You can also use a spray bottle to spritz the mixture evenly onto the skin.

If your skin is sensitive to certain skin care products, this mixture can be further diluted before use.

Listerine is another product that is easily available in most households. Being an antiseptic product in itself, it is so much more than merely a mouthwash. One can use Listerine for multiple purposes including:

Curing Toenail Fungus: You can kill the fungus by soaking your feet in a bath of Listerine. Mix a little Listerine with warm water, and soak for 20 minutes. Your fungus should clear up in no time

Aftershave: If you are out of aftershave, try Listerine. Rest assured it will leave you feeling fresh and smelling clean.

Protect Piercings: Got new body piercings? these are more likely than older ones to become infected, especially around the belly button. You can dab some Listerine around the pierced area to help prevent it from becoming infected.

Cure The Itch: Believe it or not, Listerine can clear up an itch fast. If you suffer from allergies , dab some on a cotton ball and apply it to the affected area and see the magic.

Dandruff Issues: Bid adieu to dandruff. Massage the mouthwash into your scalp, then rinse it out with your usual shampoo and u will see how it removes your dandruff as it is also an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.

Back-Up Deodorant: If you run out of deodorant, don’t worry. You’re not out of luck just yet. Rub a little Listerine on your armpit to stop the smell and feel fresh .

Stop The Spread of Lice: Did you know that Listerine can help to prevent lice from spreading? Soak your hair in the mouthwash then cover it with a shower cap for about 2 hours. Following which, wash and rinse your hair like you usually do.

Facial Cleanser: Do you know that Listerine has powerful antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties? This makes it is a great product to use for fighting acne bacteria. Listerine can help to kill acne-causing bacteria. 

Soak a cotton ball in the mouthwash and dab it onto the skin. You should notice a difference within a couple of days.

Kills Bad Bacteria: Bacteria can grow in the folds of our skin, like in our armpits. To kill of this bacteria, soak a cotton ball in Listerine and dab it onto the skin.

ENO FORMULA - Eno can be used to prepare a home remedy or formula, to enhance beauty. All you need is a pouch of Eno, one tablespoon of honey and one tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix all three of them in this order on your palm, and apply it on your face. You’ll be astonished to see the results.

How does it work? The citric acid in lemon juice and carbonate in Eno combine to produce nascent oxygen, which freshens and brightens the skin. Also, there’s an effect similar to what one experiences after undergoing a bleach. The mixture removes the dirt and dead skin, which results in the skin appearing fairer than what it normally appears to be. However, don’t expect the results to last very long. They are temporary, as anyone who has done a bleach would know. Do use it, and let us know about your experience.

Baking soda formula - Baking soda is widely for its varied properties outside the kitchen. One such unique use of the ingredient is in Teeth Whitening with Baking soda and Water

The most basic method is mixing baking soda and water. Using a small cup or bowl, mix a few drops of water with a half a teaspoon of baking soda to craft a paste. Once you have a paste, apply it to your teeth using a toothbrush or your fingers. Leave on for approximately two minutes and rinse with water. (You can also try adding a little amount of baking soda to your toothpaste. Or, you may purchase a ready-made toothpaste that contains baking soda as an ingredient.)
