Have you ever wondered how many chemicals you expose your skin to on an everyday basis? We are often puzzled why our 'beauty' products are not as effective as they claim to be. It's time you switch to their natural substitutes. We're not saying they would do immediate magic to your skin, but you can definitely reduce the harmful effects of using chemicals on your skin. Here's a list of 5 such substitutes that are already there in your kitchen and will change your beauty habits forever!

1. Lemon Juice

We swear by this deodorizing method because the citric acid in lemon kills bacteria and controls body odour. Just cut a slice and gently rub!

2. Coffee Grounds

Grounded coffee beans exfoliate your skin, acting as a natural facial scrub. Add some water and gently rub your skin with it.

3. Green Tea

Prepare the regular green tea sans the sugar. Dip a cotton ball in it and dab it on your skin. It tightens your skin just like a toner!

4. Coconut Oil

Gently spread coconut oil all over your face including eye lids and lashes and in circular motion on the cheeks. Let it stand for 4-5 minutes, wipe it off using a cotton ball and voila!

5. Baking Soda

Say no to all the chemical toothpastes that claim to whiten your teeth. Just apply a tiny amount of baking soda on your toothbrush and clean your teeth with it. Repeat the process not more than twice a week.
