I’m about to show you some DIY beauty recipes that are so simple that they call for only one ingredient each!

We’re talkin’ time-savin’, money-savin’, super-fun-to-make, mega-effective, vegan, and cruelty-free recipes that are going to leave your skin looking absolutely bee-you-tee-ful!

Head on into your kitchen for some of the following basics, and give these beauty boosters a whirl:

  • Banana (for acne-prone skin)—Mash one overripe banana and spread it onto your face. After 15 to 30 minutes, rinse it off with warm water.
  • Apple cider vinegar (for acne-prone skin)—Dilute apple cider vinegar with two parts water and use a cotton ball to apply it to your face as a toner.
  • Avocado (for dry skin)—Mash an avocado and leave it on your skin for 10 minutes.
  • Olive oil (for dry skin)—Dab some olive oil on your lips or leave it on your face overnight.
  • Baking soda (for all skin types)—Use baking soda as an exfoliant for your face by adding it to your regular cleanser.

What’s your favorite simple DIY beauty secret?

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
