Think twice before forking out on beauty oils when some excellent natural substitutes can be found at home in your pantry.
That’s right, olive oil, coconut oil and avocado oil all boast excellent benefits for your skin and hair - and the best part is, they will set you back less than $5.
Here’s how to use them.
From your hair and your hands, olive oil has many uses. Warm it and apply to your hair and scalp before washing. As for your nails, massage into your cuticles for softer hands. The oil can also be mixed with sugar and used as a lip scrub.
Similar to olive oil, coconut oil can be used a hair mask. It’s also an excellent substitute for makeup remover, as well as an all-over body moisturiser.
Avocado oil is just as versatile as coconut and olive oil. Apply it to your eyes as a treatment for dark circles, use it as a hair treatment or a facial moisturiser.
