Easy Beauty Products Already in your Kitchen!

1. Coffee Grinds
Your favorite morning perk can also help ward off cellulite. Rub grounds on your thighs, or wherever those pesky marks show up and wrap with plastic wrap for  30 minutes. The grinds will reduce cellulite marks within a few days.

2. Avocado
This yummy fruit is great for a face mask, but also for repairing damaged and fried hair. For a DIY deep conditioning treatment, cut it up into small pieces and mash together with a few tablespoons of olive oil. Wash your hair as you normally would and apply the avocado mask in your hair, working it through with  a comb. Let sit for ten minutes and rinse.

3. Tomato Juice
We've all seen the Brady Bunch episode where tomato juice saves the day when one of the Brady boys are attacked by a skunk, but did you know it also gets rid of that weird, greenish hue your hair gets from too much pool time in the summer? Especially for lighter hair colors, chlorine can wreck havoc on your hue when exposed to the elements too often. To keep your strands shiny, apply the juice straight from the can and work through with a comb. Let sit for 15 minutes before rinsing out.
