Easy DIY Teeth Whitener

 This is a simple and affordable way to whiten your teeth. I have heard of other DIY teeth whitening formulas, but this is the one I use. I just don't think rubbing strawberries on my teeth or a banana peel would work very well. Let me know if you have tried any others methods and received good results!

You will need:

1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Hydrogen Peroxide (skip this part if you have sensitive teeth)
1/2 tsp. Water (if needed)

Mix the ingredients until blended into a paste. If needed add the water to help make the mix slightly runny. Dip your toothbrush in the mixture and brush your teeth for 2-3 minutes. Rinse when finished, and use regular toothpaste if desired.

Do this once a week until you get the desired shade your looking for. Then perform only once every 1-2 months.

All Natural Face Scrub

This face scrub is so easy to make, you only need 3 ingredients, and it is all natural! It exfoliates and moisturizes the skin at the same time. Plus, the olive oil has tons of antioxidants that help with elasticity and provide radiant skin. This is similar to the oil cleansing method (where you use oil as a cleanser), except this is an exfoliator/cleanser combo.

What you need:
1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
1 Tsp. Olive Oil
Generous Squeeze of Honey

I multiplied the recipe and used 5 Tbsp. Brown Sugar and 5 Tsp. Olive Oil so I could have extra and keep it in a small jar for later.

Mix these ingredients together in a bowl.
Wash any dirt or makeup off of your face and then apply the scrub. Rub in circles as you apply. When done, rinse off with warm water.
