Let’s talk about some beauty home remedies!
Well, we all have tried a few of these beauty home remedies at one point. Be it rubbing ice cubes on face to reduce puffiness or applying some nourishing natural ingredients on hair.

Beauty Home Remedy #1 Turmeric Face pack for acne and acne scars
When it comes to natural ingredients for skin, Turmeric is my fav, followed by other ingredients that suit my oily skin. I tend to break out on and off, I usually get acne on my chin and around the jaw lines. So on times when I quickly want to calm my acne prone skin, I opt for this easy DIY Turmeric face pack which I mix with other natural ingredients I can easily find at home, such as; curd, lemon, honey and rose water.

#2 Castor oil for hair growth
Castor oil is known for its rich omega-6 essential fatty acids and ricinoleic. These essential nutrients play a significant role in increasing hair growth and improving the hair quality. I always count on castor oil when I want to grow my hair faster. There are times I would cut my bangs so short and regret for weeks until it grows out a bit or I get a little used to it. Since castor oil has a thick consistency, it’s always suggested to use it with other carrier oils such as coconut oil or olive oil. FIND OUT HOW I USE CASTOR OIL FOR HAIR GROWTH HERE
#3 Rosemary essential oil for hair growth
Essential oils are expensive and highly concentrated. You will have to use them in very little amounts, mostly adding it with other carrier oil.
Rosemary Essential Oil For Hair Growth Recipe:
- 2 tsp of coconut oil (You can get it here)
- 2 tsp of castor oil (You can get it here)
- 4- 5 drops of Rosemary essential oil (You can get it here)
- In a pan gently heat the base oils for a few seconds. DO NOT OVERHEAT.

#4 Baking soda for blackheads
While I don’t suggest using baking soda on your face on a regular basis, but If you are running out of facial scrub and thinking about how to remove blackheads at home instantly using natural ingredients then give this a try.
To make this Natural Face scrub you’ll need:
- 1 tbsp baking soda
- Half a lemon
* If you have dry or sensitive skin, replace lemon with honey.
Use it to remove blackheads on the nose or areas such as around the chin where you usually get blackheads and white heads. Be very gentle. Wash your face with lukewarm water, followed by rose water to close the pores. KNOW MORE
