11 DIY Latina Beauty Products for Your Skin and Hair

Every woman has someone in their life who has a quick do it yourself remedy for just about any skin or hair woe. Maybe you’re skeptical that these DIY recipes aren’t as effective as the stuff you can buy on store shelves. But give them a try and you might just be surprised. Latina women have long been using a variety of homemade remedies to fight everything from acne to wild and crazy hair. If you’ve avoided giving them a try for all these years, let the do it yourselfer in your life show you how it’s done. Or, just go ahead and try any of these DIY products and see the results for yourself.

1. Coconut Oil

You’ve probably heard a lot about coconut oil lately. It’s really having a moment as a spectacular beauty product, especially for skin. Even Sofia Vergara’s dermatologist raves about using coconut oil as a moisturizer. It’s as easy as applying just a dab all over your body.

Here’s why it works. Coconut oil is loaded with several kinds of fatty acids, which create a barrier on your skin, trapping moisture in and blocking inflammation and other things that can make your skin dry and unhealthy. You can find coconut oil at just about any supermarket and it’s a super affordable way to treat all kinds of skin woes, including tightness, itching and eczema.

2. Sugar and Oil

This remedy works well with virtually any kind of oil, including canola, olive or coconut oil. When you combine the oil with sugar, you have an easy DIY scrub that you can use to exfoliate your entire body. Simply combine equal parts oil and white granulated sugar and you’re ready to go.

To use, gently massage the mixture into your skin while you’re in the shower. The oil moisturizes while the sugar sloughs off dead skin cells and reveals the younger fresher skin underneath. Just be careful – the oil can get slippery and you don’t want to fall down.

3. Cola

Latinas have long used cola, specifically Coca-Cola to bring shine to their dark hair. This is something that many celebs and professional hairdressers swear by and it can work for your hair too. The acidity in the cola helps close up your hair cuticle, which boosts shine and makes your hair look healthier.

One caution with this trick – cola can be very sticky so be sure to rinse well when you’re done. Cola is inexpensive and easy to find, which makes this one of the best beauty tricks for your dark hair.

4. Avocado

You know avocado is good for the inside of your body, but it’s also good for the outside. When you apply mashed avocado to your cuticles, it infuses them with healthy oils that keep then soft and supple so you don’t have to deal with dry, cracked skin that hurts and bleeds.

Of course, eating avocado is also great for your skin and hair. It contains vitamin E, which helps keep your body nourished and moisturized. Avocado oil is also a great choice for direct application to your skin or as part of a healthy diet.

5. Honey

Maybe you’ve never considered putting honey in your hair before, but you really should. Why? It’s a natural moisturizer that restores dry, limp hair and restores bounce and shine to your tresses.

Using unprocessed honey also provides your hair with important enzymes that prevent dandruff and hydrate your scalp, something that helps keep your hair looking and feeling healthy and refreshed. As a side note, honey is also effective for treating acne and keeping your skin looking its best too.

6. Mayonnaise

If you’re battling with dry, dull hair, mayonnaise is the way to go. The fats in the mayo will moisturize your hair and the eggs will add much needed protein to your hair so it’s healthy and strong. You won’t want to leave the mayo on your hair, but it should sit for awhile for the best results.

Credit: Instagram@agregatorcook

To use, massage mayo through your hair and let it soak in for 15 to 20 minutes. If your hair is already really thin or limp, mayo might make it worse so be sure you try it out before committing to the routine.

7. Sand

It might sound strange, but many Latina women who live near the ocean swear by using sand as an exfoliant. It helps remove dead skin cells and is said to help control and erase cellulite, ensuring that you’re ready for a day at the beach anytime.

Obviously, if you don’t live near the sea, it’s hard to get a hold of sand. If that’s the case, try the above mentioned sugar and oil mixture, which offers similar benefits and is easier to come by if you’re landlocked.

8. Red Grapes

Turns out red grapes are great for more than just making wine. They’re packed with antioxidants and vitamins that restore skin and keep it looking fresh and radiant. And it’s as easy as mashing up some grapes.

Simply make a paste with smashed red grapes, being sure to reserve as much of the skins as possible. Apply to your face like a mask and leave it for 10 minutes. Then rinse with warm water and you’re good to go.

9. Olive Oil

Much like coconut oil, olive oil has mega moisturizing properties. Use it on rough patches on your skin and to rehydrate parched skin all over your body. Since olive oil is so easy to find, this is a tip that will serve you well anytime of the year.

Another great way to use olive oil is to smooth flyaway hairs and add moisture to dry tresses. Just a dab rubbed between your hands should be enough to do the trick.

10. Baby Oil

Many Latina women swear that baby oil is a miracle, especially when it heats up in the summertime. You can add a few drops to your body lotion for an extra dash of moisture and to add a healthy and radiant sheen to your body under the summer sun.

This is by far one of the best beauty tips out there because baby oil is so inexpensive and so easy to find and use. You’ll never find something as wonderful as baby oil when you put together your beauty routine.
