My boss knows about my passion to make my own natural cosmetics from food waste. So she asked me if I want to share my ideas how to manage sustenance squander. Let me show you, how you can make your own homemade beauty products from food waste.

1.- Coffee Scrub… mind blowing peeling for your skin

Almost all households have ground coffee every day. Do not throw it away, but use it for a peeling, either pure or mixed with oil. Coffee helps to reduce cellulite. The caffeine increases blood circulation and in turn, smoothens the appearance of cellulite. Studies have proved that, caffeine is also capable of breaking down the fat accumulation beneath the skin, which can otherwise lead to cellulite formation.

When used as a body exfoliator, coffee improves collagen production in the skin.
To then moisturize my skin, I like to use my aloe vera gel, which is immediately absorbed by the open skin pores. This maintains the natural elasticity of the skin and keeps it smooth.

2.- Cucumber peels against dark circles and puffiness……

The high water rate in that sustenance squander hydrates the skin splendidly. The evergreen cucumber cuts utilized on eyelids help eye tiredness and have a solid impact against dark circles and puffiness. Appreciate the calming properties. You achieve the same effect with these Charcoal Hydrogel Eye Patches, which remove puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, reduce dark spots and rejuvenate the skin

3.- Used tea bags out of the fridge

To combat dark circles as best as possible, you should cool used tea bags in the freezer for about 20 minutes before placing them on your closed eyelids.

If I want to pamper myself, I also use these anti-aging eye gel patches, infused with pure 24K gold

4.- Cracked heels become tender as butter with honey

What do you do with the rest of the honey in the jar? Mix it well with hot water and a packet of yeast and soak your feet for half an hour. Then the cornea can be easily removed with a pumice stone. Dry everything well afterwards and you will see how this treatment against cracked heels will help you.

I like to rub my feet with argan oil afterwards so that they stay nice and soft.

5.- Banana peel cures pimples and whitens teeth

We all know that bananas are very healthy and delicious, surprisingly, there are many different things that you can do with the peel of a banana. I have listed 4 clever tips for you!

  1. To heal pimples and spots in the face massage banana peel onto the problem area for a few minutes every evening. The banana peel absorbs dirt from the skin and spreads antioxidants. After a week you should see a clear difference.
  2. This method also works for scars. Massage the banana peel onto the scar tissue and let it withdraw overnight. After a while the scar becomes less visible. The same affect happens with Aloe Vera gel.
  3. Banana peel also reduces bags and tired eyes, if you make it into a face mask by mixing it with an egg yolk. Apply this mixture to the face and let it sit for 5 minutes, then rinse well.
  4. Did you know that you can also use a banana peel to whiten your teeth? To whiten your teeth naturally, brush your teeth as you usually would, and then rub your teeth with the inside of the banana peel for two minutes per day. It works because the peel contains salicylic acid, which is a natural astringent; citric acid, which is a gentle bleaching agent; and a combination of manganese, magnesium, and potassium, all of which safely remove stains without damaging the enamel on your teeth.

6.- What does grey hair have to do with potato peels?

This surprising home remedy can restore your hair to its natural shade, and you don’t need to worry about damage from harsh dyes or chemicals.

The chemicals in mainstream dyes can often make hair feel brittle and damaged, especially if you dye your hair often. So how do you restore your natural hair color in a way that’s good for your hair?

Well, it turns out potato skins might be the answer. Potatoes have starches that act as natural colorants. For this reason, potato skins have been used as alternative dye for fabrics since fabrics were invented. This is how you can get started with restoring your natural color.

Add the skins of 6 potatoes to your pot with four cups of water. The skins should be boiled for 25 minutes and then left to sit for 15 minutes. Use a strainer to empty the liquid into a clean bowl and then throw out the scraps of the peels. Add a drop or two of essential oil to the juice and let it cool.

Massage the liquid for at least 5 minutes deep into your scalp before you rinse it with clear water.

You might not see a significant difference right away. The method isn’t like hair dye. Dyes will change the color of your hair dramatically, but they use harmful chemicals to do it. This is especially true of dyes that contain bleach.

To get the best results, you’ll need to make this part of your weekly routine. You can use your potato juice once a week or even more often, especially if you have a significant amount of grey hair. The more grey hair you have, the more gradual the change back to your natural color will be.

This mixture is a thousand times healthier than a traditional dye job. Repeated treatments with potato juice won’t have any ill effects on your hair, while repeated dye treatments will.

7.- Treat yellow nails with lemon juice or tea tree oil

If you have yellowed nails, this may have been caused by smoking, nail polish discoloration, or a fungal infection. It is difficult to treat and remove. Tea tree oil, however, is a natural fungicide with antimicrobial and antiseptic properties, while lemon juice or lemon essential oil contains citric acid, which helps to brighten the nails back to their original shine.

8.- Long eyelashes

Long, thick eyelashes – the dream of almost every woman! The use of castor oil is very popular. Simply apply to the upper lash line with a cotton swab. With regular use, you can quickly notice a small difference.

If you want to be on the safe side, apply a good eyelash serum every day before going to bed. After about 4 weeks you can look forward to much longer and thicker eyelashes.

9.- Orange peels as a remedy for oily skin

Did you know that you can also get amazing benefits for your skin from the peel of an orange?

Having oily skin can be a problem as it can contribute to acne and pimples as well as blackheads. Using an orange peel paste can help tackle this problem. The nutrients found in orange peel can help nourish your skin and reduce excess oil as well as remove dead skin cells.


  1. Take a few orange peels and let them dry in the sun for a day.
  2. When the peels are dry, grind them into a fine powder.
  3. Mix the powder with egg whites and add a couple of drops of lemon juice to the mixture.
  4. Apply the paste to your face and leave on for 15 minutes.
  5. Rinse the paste off with cold water.
  6. Use this paste once per week. If you use it regularly per week, you will soon see improvements to your skin.

10.- Advantages of tomatoes for skin as an anti-aging supplement

Tomato helps to anti-aging the skin, reduces blackheads and pimples and removes the black skin cells. Tomato juice is also good as acne treatment and the balancing of your skin.

Tomatoes reduce oiliness and keep the skin cleaner and tighter.

Just cut the tomato in half and rub all over the skin, letting the juice saturate into the pores. Leave on for 15 minutes and wash your face.

When traveling or in a hurry I like to use these lift effect pearls to keep my skin elastic and firm.

Tomatoes decrease the effects of sunburn, as they are loaded with Vitamin C and A. Mix tomato juice with some buttermilk and apply this mixture to the skin. Even if you have

sunburn rashes, it will smooth the skin, reduce heat on the skin’s surface and also even out the redness caused by sunburn.
