Its so easy to make your own natural beauty products. heres a recipe! Share your own if you have any! MANGO MUD MASK: Ingredients: 1/4 medium mango (peeled and seeded) 2 tablespoons finely powdered oats 2 tablespoons finely powdered almonds 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream (best for driest skin; use whole milk if your skin is not so dry) Blending Procedure: 1. Combine all ingredients together in a small food processor and process for about 1 minute until smooth and creamy. 2. Add a bit of distilled water or hydrosol if mixture is too thick to spread on the skin; add some more finely powdered oats if it is too runny. 3. To use, pat gently over clean face and neck skin and relax for about 15 minutes. Rinse well and follow with toner and moisturizer of choice. You can also enjoy the lightly exfoliating action of the oats and almonds by massaging Mango Mud Mask lightly over your face and neck as a soothing cleanser!

Ok here's a simple one of my own - that i still can find time for :) use a pinch of baking powder on your toothpaste,once a week for a wonderful white smile. My friends actually asked me after a couple of weeks of using this what I was doing to have such white teeth, so it really works! You can use the baking soda on its own too, I just combine it with my toothpaste to avoid the nasty taste.
