The latest trend in beauty products is to use natural ingredients to reap the benefits of fruits, plants, and minerals. Unfortunately, many of these products mix natural ingredients with chemicals and preservatives. Why not try making some of these treatments yourself? Everything from shampoo to lotion to deodorant can be made using simple recipes with ingredients you can find in your kitchen. You'll save money, avoid adding pollutants to the environment, and look great! Here are so fun ideas we've found around the web.

Avocado and Carrot Cream Mask
1 of 10
The vitamin E and beta-carotene in this moisturizing mask helps to improve the tone and texture of skin. The recipe is simple and a great use of those over-ripe avocados you may have in the fridge. You'll need:

1 mashed avocado
1 cooked, mashed carrot
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons of honey

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth. Spread the mixture evenly over your face and neck and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse completely with cool water.
