Asparagus2 of 11
By Petra Guglielmetti for Woman's Day
One of spa owner Shobha Tummala's favorite recipes for dry skin: Purée some raw asparagus with milk; then mix in an equal amount of avocado and honey. Apply to a clean face, leave on for 15 minutes and rinse.
Potatoes3 of 11
Raw potatoes make for an excellent skin-brightening scrub, says Tummala. Her trick is to mix equal parts grated raw potato and loose tea with 1/3 as much olive oil and slowly massage it onto your face, using light circular motions.
Bananas4 of 11
“Bananas are very soothing and moisturizing to the skin, so they make a great homemade mask,” says New York City makeup artist Kimara Ahnert.

Coconut Milk5 of 11
Coconut milk is very effective for hydrating dull, dry hair, says Dr. Ranella Hirsch. She suggests mixing half a can with a mashed-up medium-size avocado, combing the blend through dry hair, and leaving it on for 20 minutes before washing it out.
Tea Bags6 of 11
Got puffy bags under your eyes? “Brew some tea using two bags; then let them cool and place them under your lids,” says Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, MD, PhD. “The natural caffeine helps shrink blood vessels to visibly diminish puffiness."
Oatmeal7 of 11
“Oatmeal contains beta-glucans, which are very skin-soothing, and it also has a tightening effect when you apply it as a mask," says Jeannette Graf, MD.

Kosher Salt8 of 11
To give hair that textured look it has after a day at the beach, try this trick from stylist Ryan Nickulas: Fill a spray bottle with about 3 ounces water and add 3 teaspoons kosher salt and a couple squirts of any hair gel; then shake and spray.
Brown Sugar9 of 11
Hollywood spa owner Ole Henriksen still loves how brown sugar’s fine granules leave skin feeling warm, soothed and soft. Try his favorite make-at-home shower scrub: Mix about 2 ounces brown sugar and 2 ounces oil and massage the scrub into your body.
Coffee10 of 11
Don’t toss those grounds after you brew your next pot of coffee, says Meredith Fish, founder and CEO of Brownberry sunless tanner. Use them to exfoliate skin before you apply self-tanner. Mix about 3 Tbsp of the grounds with 1 Tbsp salt, and scrub.
Oranges11 of 11
“After you shower, lightly squeeze some orange juice onto each part of your body and massage it in,” says facialist Ole Henricksen; this exfoliates the skin thanks to natural alpha hydroxy acids.
