Six Dr. Oz Natural Remedies

Dr. Oz Natural Remedies

I love it when I catch the natural remedies segment of the Dr. Oz Show.  If you are a sucker for anti-aging, anti cellulite beauty products, you definitely want to read this article for home remedies that won’t drain your bank account.  I have tried 5 of the 6 myself, with better results than any expensive miracle product I have fallen prey to in the past!

1. Red Wine Facial for Sagging, Blotchy Skin

Red wine contains resveratrol, an antioxidant. Honey reduces blemishes and redness, while yogurt moisturizes.

1 cup yogurt

2 tbsp honey

4-5 tbsp red wine

Directions: Combine yogurt, honey and red wine. Apply to face and let dry. Rinse clean with warm water.

2.  Toothpaste to Zap a Zit

Toothpaste dries and absorbs oil, thereby healing zits.  Be careful about which toothpaste you choose; bleaching varieties have hydrogen peroxide that burn the skin. Red pastes or ones with cinnamon can cause irritation as well.

Directions: Apply a generous amount of toothpaste onto your pimple. Let dry and then rise with warm water.

3.  Expresso Mask for Tighter Skin

Honey hydrates the skin.  Caffeine improves circulation and creates a taut, supple look.

Directions: Combine equal amounts of dry expresso and honey. Mix together and apply to your face for 10-15 minutes.

4.   Aspirin and Lemon Juice for Flawless Skin

Aspirin contains salicylic acid, which acts as a chemical peel to reduce acne and lesions. Lemon juice contains vitamin C, with acts as an antioxidant to nourish your skin if and combat damage from sun exposure. It also acts as an exfoliant because of its acidity.

Directions: Take 6-12 non-coated aspirin and crush them up into a powder. Combine with fresh, real lemon juice. Let it dissolve into more of a paste for about 5-10 minutes. Lightly apply to blemish. Remove with a cotton ball dipped in a solution of baking soda and water.

5.  Coffee Grinds Scrub for Cellulite

Caffeine enhances fat metabolism, particularly just beneath the skin. It’s easily absorbed when applied directly on the skin. It’s also a diuretic, so it gets some of the fluid out of the fat beneath your skin so that cellulite is less visible. Olive oil is a moisturizer and an emollient, which softens the skin. The brown sugar works as an exfoliant. Although this is not permanent cellulite fix, it’s a great temporary solution.

Directions: Combine 1/2 cup coffee grinds with 1/4 cup brown sugar. Place olive oil over areas of cellulite and then rub the rub mix into skin in a circular motion. Scrub for 5 minutes to exfoliate.

6.  Chapped Lips Home Remedy

The sugar helps to remove dead skin that accumulates from chapping.  The baking soda helps the mixture to lather. To make this a perfect treatment, you need to bring moisture back to the lips. Try adding some olive oil to the mixture!

Directions: Mix 1 tablespoon of sugar, a tablespoon of baking soda and a tablespoon of water together. Dip a tooth brush into the mix and brush your lips. Rinse off with water for a smooth and exfoliated lip.
