Gorgeous Miranda Kerr swears by coconut oil. She uses it as hair conditioner, mixes it with a little sea salt to make a moisturizing body scrub and trusts it as an effective makeup remover. Amanda Seyfried agrees and says that coconut oil is great for keeping her legs looking smooth as silk. Mandy Moore is another celebrity who say coconut oil has it all – this time as a daily moisturizer.

Ice and Cucumber
Have you ever woken up in the morning with a puffy face? Kate Moss has!
She recommends a basin full of ice water with cucumber slices and says she literally ‘submerges’ her face in it. Gwyneth Paltrow is also a big fan of dunking her face in the ice-cold water to come out looking fabulous.
Lemon Juice and Water
Nobody can deny that Scarlett Johansson always looks superb. Her secret? The star uses lemon juice and water instead of expensive store-bought toner! How much do you pay for toner? How much does a lemon cost? Food for thought.
Almond Oil and Apple Cider Vinegar
For all over moisturizing, Emma Roberts swear by almond oil applied directly after showering when the pores are open. Happy to share her secrets, she says that Apple Cider Vinegar on a wad of cotton wool is fantastic for clearing away product buildup on the skin.
Oil of Olay
As beauty products go, this is among the most affordable international brands. Would you believe that Brittany Snow and Selena Gomez both say it’s the ultimate moisturizer for them? Who needs Estee Lauder? Not these acclaimed beauties.
Blake Lively has noticed, as many of us do, that the ends of our hair are always drier than the roots. So before shampooing, she applies mayonnaise to the ends, helping to prevent over-dry tips after shampooing. Zoe Saldana goes the whole hog and uses it as a hair conditioner.
Catherine Zeta-Jones is known for her magnificent hair. Her low-cost answer for glossy locks? A beer rinse after shampooing.
Cellulite creams cost an arm and a leg, and even though you’d never suspect it, Halle Berry also suffers from an orange-peel skin. By mixing coffee grounds with her regular scrub, she says she beats the bane of every woman’s life with ease!
Are you surprised? It’s one of Tyra Banks’ recommended beauty products. She uses it on all her laugh lines, keeps her lips soft with Vaseline, and makes sure her knees and elbows don’t get dry and flaky by giving them a liberal dressing with this super-cheap product. And where does she buy it? Target is one of her favorite outlets!
Marilyn Monroe was also a fan of Vaseline – she used it as a cleanser and Rachel Bilson follows suit. Jennifer Aniston seconds Tyra on the anti-ageing effects of Vaseline and says it’s better than any night cream.
Lauren Conrad has the answer to puffy eyes in the morning. She keeps a potato in the fridge and uses thin slices to soothe her eye area. 15 to 20 minutes is all it takes.
Sex and Drinking Water
Both don’t cost you, and both are great for your looks according to Cameron Diaz. Who’d argue with Cameron? Certainly not us!
Join the ranks of celebrities that swear yoga is the secret to radiant good looks and a great figure. Sara Jessica Parker is just one of the big names that say it’s the key to natural beauty.
It doesn’t cost anything to put on your sports clothes and get some strenuous exercise. Both Halle Berry and Rihanna say that exercise is their number one beauty secret, and for Rihanna, it’s swimming that does the trick.
Keep It Clean
