4. Toothpaste as Acne Treatment
Acne is one of the most common beauty problems for many people around the world. You might be skeptical, toothpaste for treating pimples? Yes, it is actually one of the most effective ways to get rid of acne and also readily available at home. To get rid of those pimples all you have to do is apply a slight amount of toothpaste on your pimple and leave it there overnight. The clotting property of toothpaste reduces redness and swelling. It also prevents bacteria from spreading to other skin pores. Tip: Make sure that your toothpaste has triclosan and hydrogen peroxide.
5. Coconut Oil as a Shaving Cream
Coconut oil is a multi-tasking product. Not only is it inexpensive but it is also all natural. Coconut oil is another easily readily available natural ingredient available at our homes.

If it has solidified, just rub some between your hands and melt it. Use a sharp razor to get a close shave. The oil moisturizes the skin, helping the razor to glide over easily. Tip: Don’t forget to rinse the blade between strokes.
