Girls, we spend an absolute fortune buying face masks, body scrubs and hair treatments that promise to make us younger, healthier and better looking.

But how many of these actually work?

Very few, is, I suspect, the answer to that question.

In fact experts agree that a lot of the beauty products we buy are little more than simple moisturiser and some clever marketing.

In addition, store bought lotions and potions are packed with chemicals and hormones that might, ultimately, damage our health, so why not get back to basics and sample a few tried and tested beauty solutions you can put together in your own home?2

1. Exfoliating Face Mask

There are a million-and-one recipes out there for home made face packs and some of them arenโ€™t all that great.

Iโ€™ve found one of the better concoctions for you ladies to try out yourselves;

this exfoliating mask with oatmeal, cucumber and avocado is certainly a winner.3

The avo is packed with Vitamin E, the cucumber is a natural anti-inflammatory and the will gently buff away dead skins cells when you take the mask off.

2. Kiwi Cleanser

This home-made facial cleanser is great for oily skin and its tasty ingredients make it almost good enough to eat!

Youโ€™ll need one peeled kiwi fruit, a couple of tablespoons of natural yoghurt, a tablespoon of honey and a drop of orange essential oil.

Mix these all together until they look thick and creamy, apply to damp skin, wash and rinse.

Kiwi is chock-a-block with invigorating Vitamin C and acts as a natural detergent, gently breaking down oiliness on the skinโ€™s surface.

3. Berry Hand and Foot Exfoliant

This fruity foot and hand treatment scrubs off dead and dry skin cells, smells delicious and will leave your skin feeling fabulously soft.2

To make it youโ€™ll need about 10 strawberries or a handful of raspberries, a glug of olive oil and another handful of coarse sea salt or yellow sugar.2

Puree the strawberries in a blender, mix this up with other ingredients and massage over your hands and feet.

Berries are a great natural source of antioxidants which fight skin-dulling free radicals and theyโ€™re also super high in Vitamin C.
