There’s nothing we love more than when celebs share the inside scoop from their dermatologist, nutritionist, makeup artist or hair stylist! Because let’s face it, celebs have access to some of the best, most sought-after specialists in the world! But, what’s even better is when they reveal that their go-to beauty elixir isn’t the $200 face serum sitting on their shelf, it’s actually something they found in their kitchen. So, we’re rounding up six of the easiest beauty hacks that you can do at home to enhance your natural beauty.
Priyanka Chopra’s Lip Scrub
Priyanka loves to talk about the natural beauty hacks her mother and grandmother taught her, and she says in India, people prefer holistic remedies to pharmaceuticals. And we totally get why, because after trying her hack out, we’re obsessed. Her go-to lip remedy is a super-easy, hydrating all-natural scrub. The recipe: Mix a pinch of sea salt, a couple of drops of pure glycerin (nature’s super hydrator), and a few drops of rose water, and you’ll have the most divine lip scrub, which will leave your pout super smooth, hydrated, and kissably soft.
Kourtney Kardashian and Miranda Kerr’s Hair Mask
Miranda Kerr and Kourtney Kardashian are fans of this clarifying hair mask hack and we’re super excited to try it out ourselves, as we’re huge fans of both apple cider vinegar and coconut oil. Their hydrating hair recipe contains coconut oil to hydrate and nourish your hair while the apple cider vinegar will add shine. The recipe: Mix 2 tablespoons of coconut oil with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and then once you’ve shampooed your hair, massage it into your ends and scalp and let it soak for 3-5 minutes. Then rinse and continue with conditioner. Prepare for super soft, nourished and cleansed locks.
Lupita Nyong’o’s makeup remover
The Oscar winner told Redbook that to combat her dry skin, she uses avocado to remove her makeup, as she believes it helps her skin retain moisture. And she’s totally right, avocado is full of beauty-boosting vitamins and antioxidants that will replenish the skin. Although, we only recommend using it at night, as it may be a little heavy on your skin during the day.
Cate Blanchett and Julia Roberts’ super hydrator
Another celeb favorite for beautiful skin is olive oil, yup you read that correctly! Although you’re probably more used to using this on your salads it’s actually amazing for your skin, as it’s super hydrating and packed full of good-for-skin omegas and fatty acids that nourish the skin. Julia likes to simply use olive oil as a hand oil, but Cate Blanchett gets a little more creative and makes a homemade body scrub using olive oil, grapefruit juice, and sea salt.
Adriana Lima’s Hair Mask
If we’re being honest, Adriana Lima could tell us to put anything on our hair, and we would try it – the woman is basically an Amazonian goddess. She says that to keep her locks silky smooth, she makes a weekly avocado hair mask. The recipe: Mix one smashed avocado with a little conditioner and leave it on your hair for 30 to 45 minutes.
Shay Mitchell’s Long-Lasting Lip Stain
This has to be one of the most natural hacks we’ve heard of, and we’re into it. It kinda reminds us of when we were little girls and we used to use cherries as a lip stain (which totally works by the way). But Shay’s hack is probably way more effective due to the stronger pigments in beetroots: For a rosy lip tint, Shay told Insider that she cuts up small cubes of beetroot and rubs them onto her lips for color that lasts all day long – we’re totally trying that!
