As a kid, you walk into grandma’s house and soon enough she’s stuffing you to the brim with baked goods and some oddball shade of red lipstick kisses.

Soon enough, she’s rattling off all these beauty remedies she swears by, but admit it – you were already tuning her out. Well, you may want to listen in next time! Turns out, grandma’s classic and unusual DIY beauty recipes are worthwhile and effective as ever!

Here are some of the best:

Olive oil for healthy nails

Moisturized hands and nails are a must, but sometimes you can’t afford the price of a manicure at the salon. Dipping your nails in an olive oil bath at least once a day will not only give you soft cuticles but will improve nail strength within the first few uses.

Agua Maravilla for blemishes

If you’ve never heard of agua maravilla, you might also know it as witch hazel. An age-old remedy for acne and irritated skin that you may have already used once or twice before. It can also be used to soothe a bug bite!

Avocado for cuticles

Avocado is not only a healthy fat to incorporate into your everyday diet, but it can also be useful for unruly cuticles. The oil of an avocado is likely easier to apply than actual avocado, but either option is used.
