1. Yogurt Face Mask
For a refreshing face mask, combine one cup of yogurt with one-half cup of honey and mix in one cup of blended cucumber. Leave this mixture on your face for 15 minutes, then remove. Tip: Even if the yogurt is a few days past the expiration, it is still okay to use.
2. Recycled Blush
Refill an old compact with a mixture of cinnamon and powdered white sugar (add as much or as little as you want to create the right shade). Then add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to bond the powders and create an organic blush that looks -- and smells -- fabulous.
3. Pumpkin Foot Scrub
Soften rough, dry feet by combining one-quarter cup cooked or canned pumpkin puree, one-quarter cup brown sugar, one tablespoon of almond oil (or olive oil or jojoba oil), one tablespoon ground coffee beans and the juice from one-half of a lemon. Mix all of the ingredients in a big bowl and then scrub your feet well. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Bonus: Leftovers can be used in the shower on other body parts!
4. Sunflower Shaving Cream
Make your own shaving cream with just sunflower oil and glycerin soap. Here's how: In a double boiler, melt one-quarter cup of unscented glycerin soap and then stir in one-half teaspoon of sunflower oil. Move the mixture into a mug as soon as the glycerin chunks are melted (this formula will set quickly). When you want to shave, simply add water to the soap until a lather builds and use it the same way you would regular shaving cream.
