Baking Soda and Lemon to Remove Nail Discoloration

Method: Place baking soda in a small bowl. Squeeze lemon juice into bowl and mix into an exfoliating paste.

Verdict: It works! The acidic and antimicrobial properties of lemons, when combined with the abrasive properties of baking soda, can lighten your nails and leave them looking younger and healthier. The exfoliating power of the paste on the rest of your hands is just an added bonus!

Apple Cider Vinegar to Treat Oily Hair

Method: Dilute vinegar by mixing one tablespoon into one cup of water. Apply it to hair and then rinse.

Verdict: It works! Apple cider vinegar balances pH, which will keep hair from drying out. Removing oil without drying the scalp is a key way to keep your tresses healthy.


Cucumber to Moisturize Dry Lips

Method: Take one slice of cucumber and apply directly to lips.

Verdict: It works! Cucumber is 96% water so it restores moisture in lips on its own. As the winter season approaches, keeping cucumber in your fridge will be a great way to prepare for chapped lips.
