Fantastic piece, and a great reminder of the extent to which simple, affordable "gifts" from Nature do the same things (often better) than the (often synthetic) stuff we pay so much money for! I would add egg whites to this list. Lightly beat them and apply to the face, leave on for 5 minutes, then rinse off, to temporarily reduce the size of pores. A handy trick before a big date or a photo shoot!

A good reminder about coconut oil. I ran out of my store-bought and homemade makeup removers and have awkwardly been using vit. E oil this week. Not great. Coconut is so much better!

Wow! What a plethora of ideas...I usually don't use too many beauty aids, however, these ideas are simple and easy. Thanks for posting!

Kristen, what fun ideas - repurposing my used tea bags (as opposed to wasting new!) is so obvious, but I never thought about it until now. Thanks! Would green tea work as well as the black or chamomile you mentioned?

This is a GREEN-tastic article! I have had a build up on my hair that I was going to go to the salon and pay to have a "professional removal"...instead I went to my kitchen. Kristin, it worked and my hair is ultra soft. Thank you for your tips...I will watch out for more articles with your name on them!!

I never would have thought of beet or cherry juice as a cheek/lipstain, this is great!

Such great wisdom and advice. Wow, I did not know that you could use beet juice as a stain this way. That's a beautiful thing. Love this article! More please!

LOVE this article- awesome tips and ideas, I must try the coffee ground scrub tonight! Can I use regular coffee like maxwell house and can I use it str8 from the can or do I have to soak it inwater first?

@Tasha I like your resourcefulness. The reason we suggest black or chamomile is due to their higher caffeine content. Green has a lower caffeine content than black or chamomile but should work the same way, only to a lesser degree. If you give it a try, let us know how it goes!

We need more advice like this and more professionals like Ms. Arnett to help us change the way we manage the smallest aspects of our lives in a natural and healthy way. It's not just what we put IN our bodies but ON our bodies. When doctors and health practitioners advise avoidance of certain products...why aren't we paying attention and utilizing the same information in our day to day lives....and finding natural SIMPLE affordable almost OBVIOUS solutions. THANK YOU Whole Foods for this article!!!
