One of the three ways that toxic chemicals enter our bodies is absorption through the skin. This applies to products like bleach, ammonia and other obvious cleaning products. However, it applies to beauty products too. Some beauty products are even more harmful than some cleaning products.

So what do you do? You can purchase natural beauty products both at the low-end of the cost spectrum and the high-end.

It's fun however, to experiment with making natural beauty products at home with simple ingredients that are already at your fingertips. Here are 4 natural beauty recipes you can make at home:

1. Vegetable Mask Combine a mashed carrot, mashed avocado, beaten egg with a few tablespoons of honey. This mask will improve skin tone and texture and provide skin with vitamins. Leave on for 15 minutes and then rinse with cool water.

2. Skin Toner Grated cucumber or diluted lemon juice makes a great toner to tighten skin and close the pores.

3. Hair Conditioner Mix egg yolk with a tablespoon of castor oil and apply it to the hair. Leave in for about 10 minutes then rinse.

4. Skin cream Combine 1 cup of olive oil with natural sea salt and massage into your hands and feet. Leave on for a few minutes then rinse with warm water.
