Indulging in high-end brightening creams, sweet-smelling scrubs, and luxurious moisturizers is draining on your wallet and your medicine cabinet. Many of your everyday culinary staples pack serious natural anti-aging power. Put a few together and you’ve made yourself a little DIY skin magic—with no weird chemicals, pushy sales associates, or heavy price tags in sight. In addition to being cheap, anything you make at home (unless you are a chemist). Between saving money on the products you use every day and learning enough recipes to host a DIY party, the possibilities are endless. From sunscreen to under eye cream, we’ve pulled together our 5 DIY beauty products.
