Don’t miss to discover our grandmothers’ simple and effective beauty secret!
When we don’t have the time or the products to do our regular beauty routine, it’s very tempting to turn to our old grandmother’s recipes. Simple to make, these recipes often only require a few natural ingredients from our kitchen.
And far from being just legends, some of them are very effective. Discover these little beauty tips that have been passed down from generation to generation, to our great delight!
Recipes for the skin
There is no shortage of grandmothers’ beauty secrets for caring for the skin or making it more beautiful.
Pimples have appeared? Infuse cloves in hot water for 10 minutes, then apply the preparation to the blemishes on your face with a cotton ball. Repeat several times for greater effectiveness.
In case of sunburn, you’ll have to find your emergency remedy in your refrigerator: a yogurt applied to the burn for about 20 minutes will soothe it considerably.
Finally, if you are looking for a grandmother’s recipe for the skin to use regularly, you should know that it is possible to make a face mask with liquid organic honey, which you will apply for 10 minutes before rinsing. Thanks to its fructose, glucose, vitamins, and trace elements, it allows the skin to hydrate and regenerates.
Tips for taking care of your eyes
You don’t always have to arm yourself with elaborate products to take care of your eyes. If you wake up with dark circles, you can find comfort in potatoes, for example. There’s no need to cook it, just peel it raw, mash part of it with a fork, and apply the mixture to your dark circles for about 15 minutes.
The dark circles should diminish significantly, or at least lose their dark tint.
If you’ve just had tea for breakfast, don’t throw your tea bag away! You can also use it to make your pockets disappear. However, be sure to chill it in the freezer before putting it on your eyes for a few minutes, otherwise, you may not notice any real effect.
Some recipes for a perfect smile
Grandmothers’ books are full of tips and tricks for a perfect smile. Did you know, for example, that honey can replace lip balm?
A mixture of a teaspoon of honey and a few drops of sweet almond applied regularly to the lips can make them softer and more beautiful than ever!
But for a perfect smile, we must also take care of our teeth. Here again, an ancient trick can help us regain their natural whiteness:
Add baking soda to your toothpaste when brushing for two weeks. It will polish the enamel and remove coffee and tea stains with its abrasive action, all without breaking the bank.
Recipes for nails and hair
The egg mask is a classic that most girls try at least once in their lives to repair their damaged hair! And for good reason, the recipe is very simple:
Mix two egg yolks with two teaspoons of organic olive oil and apply the mixture to the lengths of damp hair. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly, and your hair will be shinier. It is also possible to add honey and even a few drops of rum!
As for the nails, lemon is the miracle ingredient to strengthen them and make them more beautiful. The technique? Rub a slice daily on each of your nails without rinsing them. That will have for effect to bleach them…
An easy way to remove hair
This is perhaps one of the most famous and effective grandmother recipes. If you’re short of wax for your hair removal, make your own with a kind of homemade caramel:
Boil 4 tablespoons of sugar, one tablespoon of lemon juice, and two tablespoons of water, then once it’s cooled, use the mixture as hot wax, spreading it well in the direction of the hair.
The recipe is easy to make and economical but does not spare us the usual cold sweat when pulling out the hair.
