Get over the 2:30 hump and power through the rest of your day with this energizing spritz. Pour one cup of piping hot water over five-to-six mint leaves and let it cool to room temperature. Add in 3 teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, then two drops of orange essential oil and stir. Pop into your fridge for 20 minutes then pour into a spray bottle; spritz on skin throughout the day. Mint and lemon create a natural cooling effect while the orange scent boosts your mood.

Need to take the edge off red, sun-exposed skin? Skip goopy cold creams and try this soothing trick. Remove the seeds from two cucumbers, chop, then blend for one minute. Scoop your blended cukes into a piece of cheesecloth and squeeze juice into a bowl. Add 1/2 cup of aloe vera juice into the liquid and stir. Pour the mixture 3/4 of the way into Dixie cups and freeze for one hour. Peel the rims off the cups so the ice is exposed, then rub on sunburned skin and sayaaah.

Don't be a victim of shoulder snow. Instead, grate the inside of one coconut and mix with 1/3 cup water to create a milky consistency. Warm it in your microwave for 15 seconds, and then squeeze in the juice of one lemon. Soak the squeezed lemon wedge in the mixture and rub it on your scalp. Leave on for fifteen minutes; shampoo. Lemon's acidity breaks down flaky buildup while coconut's fatty acids soothe, nourish and moisturize. Repeat twice a week until you pass the little black dress test.

Got a little heavy-handed with your bronzer? Avoid this next time by creating your own shade. Pour 1/2 cup cinnamon powder, 1/4 cup cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons of baby powder into a sieve and sift into a mixing bowl. Add 4-5 drops of coconut oil and mix. To customize your shade, blend with your favorite body lotion. Then, rub onto your arms, legs and decollete. Insta-glow!

Pomegranates and its seeds are packed with an army of anti-aging oxidants making them great for you inside and out. Crush eight to ten seeds in a bowl until they are super fine and smooth (gritty seeds can scratch your skin). Add 3 teaspoons of water, 1 tablespoon of organic honey (a natural antibacterial) and a squeeze of orange juice. Apply it to your skin and rub gently to buff away dull dry skin.

Whitening strips can nix coffee stains on the fly but this sweet solution is great for sensitive teeth (and it tastes so much better). Crush up one strawberry, spoon the pulp onto your toothbrush and brush for two minutes. Follow up with a quick rinse to remove any residue. Malic acid in the fruit acts as a natural astringent to help whiten teeth.

What every woman wants: hair so shiny it makes people wear shades. Here's how to make it happen. Smash two or three bananas (they're packed with strengthening ingredients like potassium that repair damage) in a bowl until they reach a creamy texture. Drizzle in 1/3 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar and mix. Apply the mask to dry hair and let it soak in for 15 minutes before shampooing. Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids in olive oil inject moisture into hair while apple cider vinegar removes buildup. The result: Your BFF using your coif as a mirror.

A good body scrub is clutch for glowing skin during spaghetti strap season. All you need are three ingredients to whip up a batch that'll last all summer long. Pour one cup sea salt into a mason jar. Add 1/4 cup all natural argan oil (if it's difficult to find, you can use olive oil instead) and mix until all the salt is evenly coated in the oil. Drop in a palmful of chamomile, a natural sore muscle soother, and massage the scrub onto wet skin in circular motions to help slough rough spots and amp up blood circulation.
