Only God knows (or maybe even He doesn't!) all the trouble that we ladies go through in the pursuit of flawless, radiantly beautiful skin. Spas, facials, massages, cleanups, manicures and pedicures, the list is never-ending.

We, at BeBeautiful, strongly believe that your kitchen is the one-stop shop for all your skin related concerns.
We’ve curated a list of 6 hacks that could quite literally change the way you live your life and the way you treat your skin!
- #1 Tea Bags for the under eyes!

- #5 Coconut Oil as Make-up Remover!
- #6 Honey for Dry Skin!
#1 Tea Bags for the under eyes!
Power packed with caffeine and antioxidants, tea bags are a natural remedy for all your eye-related concerns, such as puffy under eyes, dark circles and redness, amongst many others. Place used green tea bags on your eyelids or on the puffy under eyes for about 5 to 10 minutes and watch as they work their magic! For added effect, chill the tea bags in the fridge before putting them on your eyes!
#2 Lemon For Skin Pigmentations!
If you have skin pigmentation or discolouration problems, this hack is definitely the one for you. Lemon is known to be extremely effective against skin pigmentation, especially on account of its antibacterial properties. Filled to the brim with vitamin C, lemon juice acts as an excellent skin bleaching agent that fades away your skin pigmentation and gives you even toned skin!
#3 Exfoliate with Sugar!
If you didn’t already know, sugar is an exceptional exfoliating scrub. It has fine granules that dive right into your pores and cleanse them. Scrubbing with sugar removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells without causing any pain. For even better results, mix sugar with Vaseline and get the perfect lip scrub.
#4 Yogurt Mask for Sunburns!
Zinc is one of those crucial ingredients in yoghurt that makes it a soothing agent for the skin. Applying yoghurt onto your sunburns and rashes can help ease the discomfort. In the event of sunburn, there is nothing better than applying a yoghurt mask, as it reduces inflammation and redness, and balances the amount of natural oils present in your skin.
#5 Coconut Oil as Make-up Remover!
Coconut oil isn’t just a brilliant moisturiser or massage oil, it’s an excellent makeup remover as well. When it comes to removing your makeup efficiently, coconut oil surpasses all others in the job. Massage your entire face in circular motions for about 5 minutes with the coconut oil. Cover your eyes, eyebrows and lips as well. Next, with a wet cloth, gently wipe off the coconut oil from your face. You’ll witness the makeup coming off like a dream
#6 Honey for Dry Skin!
Honey is one of the best hydrating agents for your skin and hair. Its antibacterial properties keep your skin healthy and protected. If you have dry skin issues or you want to instantly boost your skin’s moisture levels, try using a honey mask. Honey is extremely hydrating and does wonders for your skin’s moisture retention capabilities
