Beauty magazines will feature $25 face creams and list them as affordable. For many of us, we get the struggle, and there are more affordable products out there. The good news, you don’t have to go far to find just what your skin needs for pampering.

In fact, even beauticians sought for staple household items such as yogurt, baking soda, lemons, and more. In many cases, they’re just what you need to soften rough patches, eliminate acne, and whiten the teeth! When you want a natural alternative, we suggest trying the following items that are easily found in your pantry.

Baking Soda



Get rid of sunburn. While Aloe Vera sets the stage in relieving the pain, opt for baking soda instead. Run a cold bath and pour a quarter-cup of it in the tub. Feel its soothing sensation for a couple of minutes.

Yes, a firming mask. Use a tablespoon of baking soda along with one beaten egg for a firming mask. You’ll want to brush the mixture on the face until it’s completely dry. The process will take about 10 minutes and then gently remove it with warm water. The use of eggs provides the skin essential vitamins like A, D, and E. At the same time, baking soda will kill the bacteria and tightens the skin.

Great as a moisturizer. You can have avocado and eat it too, but don’t trash the peel just yet! Rub this on the skin and leave its residue for about 25 minutes. This serves as a natural moisturizer.

Defy aging the right way. According to Scott-Vincent Borba, you can mash avocado and oil from a vitamin E gel, with a sprinkle of cayenne and honey. This kind of mask is thick and should be applied to the face and neck. Leave it on for about 30 minutes and rinse.


A fantastic scrub. Use a quarter cup of grapefruit, half-cup of cornmeal and half-cup of yogurt. Leave this in the fridge for about an hour until it cools and then use the combination as a face scrub.

Hydration made easy. Avocado has a great reputation with the skin. Pair this with yogurt and you’ll be defying aging from left to right. Use a quarter cup of honey, half of an avocado, and half-cup avocado. Apply with sponge for about 20 minutes and rinse with cool water.

So now you see that you don’t have to shell out hundreds of dollars to receive the same benefits! Try a natural way to treat your skin at an affordable price tag.
