12 DIY Amazing Natural Beauty Remedies

1: Cellulite Be Gone Solution: Home Remedy

Why it works? Baking soda is found in most toothpastes and whiteners, so its no surprise that it acts as a powerful tooth whitener, but did you know strawberries will enhance the whitening effect? Strawberries contain an enzyme called Malic acid. This organic acid acts like an astringent by removing surface stain of the teeth.
