Priyanka Chopra — Sea Salt and Rose Water Lip Scrub

Priyanka Chopra is full of DIY beauty hacks, but one we're definitely going to try is her sea salt and rose water lip scrub. The "Quantico" star revealed her natural beauty hack in a video for Vogue, in which she revealed that she mixes a pinch of sea salt, a few drops of pure glycerine, and some rose water to create a lip scrub that will instantly leave your pout "plumper, pinker, and smoother." To brighten the color, Chopra also recommends adding a few drops of lemon juice.

Adriana Lima — Avocado Hair Mask

If you're lusting over Adriana Lima's hair, the secret is in the avocado aisle. The Victoria's Secret model revealed to Into the Gloss that once a week, she mashes an avocado and mixes it with her conditioner to create a DIY hair mask that she leaves in for about 30 to 45 minutes. After she washes out the concoction, Lima is left with glossy, runway-ready hair.

"In Brazil, we'd take our conditioner or hair mask and mix it with avocado and put that in our hair for a treatment," Lima said. "It leaves your hair super shiny. I'm not joking! And avocado doesn't have a strong scent, so you won't smell funny. I promise."

Kourtney Kardashian
Kourtney Kardashian — Apple Cider Vinegar and Coconut Oil Mouthwash

To detox her mouth, Kourtney Kardashian forgoes store-bought mouthwash and makes her own out of coconut oil and apple cider vinegar. First, she takes a spoonful of coconut oil and swishes it around her mouth for a few minutes before spitting it out. "The oil naturally pulls toxins from your mouth, which will help cut down on plaque and cavities," she wrote on a post on her website titled "Detox Your Mouth!"

Next, she takes a spoonful apple cider vinegar, which she mixes with water, and uses that as her daily mouthwash. Since apple cider vinegar contains natural antibacterial qualities, the reality star swears by her concoction as a toxin-free alternative to your drugstore's Listerine. "Since ACV is naturally antibacterial, it will kill bacteria in your mouth," she wrote.

Shay Mitchell
Shay Mitchell — Beets Lipstick

Shay Mitchell is a lover of makeup, but when she wants to let her skin breathe and not get fully glammed, she has a clever hack for an all-natural lipstick that you can find in your salad. In an interview with INSIDER, the actress revealed that she cuts up beets (raw or roasted) and swatches them on her lips for a natural rosy-pink lip tint that will last all day.

"I actually do like to cut up beets," she said. "I'll rub them on my lips if I want to have a natural rosy tint for the whole day, because it does really last," she says. "So, yeah, you're almost tinting your lips using a raw beet."

Leighton Meester — Mango and Shea Butter Lotion

Instead of spending money on store-bought lotion, Leighton Meester creates her own with a slew of natural ingredients. To keep her skin moisturized, the actress mixes together shea butter, mango butter, cocoa butter, almond oil, coconut, and some essential oils. The ingredients are not only delicious to have on-hand, but they're also super-hydrating and nourishing for the skin.

"I actually make my own [lotion.] It’s shea butter, mango butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, almond oil, essential oils and all kind of stuff. Then you mix it, it smells good," Meester told People. "You slip and slide everywhere."

Kristen Bell — Brown Sugar and Olive Oil Body Scrub

For a good natural body scrub, Kristen Bell heads to her kitchen, where she mixes a bowl of brown sugar, olive oil, and honey. She applies the scrub in the shower to polish off dead skin and moisturize and clean her body.

“I also love making little scrubs to keep in the shower," Bell told Us Weekly. "I’ll mix brown sugar, honey, and a little bit of olive oil and scrub my body with it.“

Cate Blanchett — Grapefruit and Sea Salt Body Scrub

If you're looking for a body scrub that will brighten and polish your skin, Cate Blanchett has the recipe for you. The actress combines either olive oil or macadamia oil with grapefruit juice and sea salt for a natural body scrub that, she promises, will make your skin "zing."

“Olive and macadamia oils are really good for your complexion. Put one of them on in the shower, and they make your skin zing,” Blanchett told InStyle. “I incorporate them into a homemade scrub with grapefruit juice and sea salt—a beauty trick taught to me by a friend of mine.”

Helena Christensen
Helena Christensen — Coffee Body Scrub and Papaya Peel

Considering she's one of the '90s iconic supermodels, we trust Helena Christensen with beauty advice. The model opened up to Well + Good about the natural beauty hacks she swears by, such as using coffee grounds as a natural body scrub in the shower and fresh papaya as a body peel. The coffee contains acid and antioxidants, which counteract inflammation, while papaya enzymes act as a natural exfoliant.

“It’s not weird to me, but some might think it’s peculiar that I use coffee grinds on my body,” Christensen said.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen — Coconut and Almond Oil Conditioner

If you want to know the secret to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's ever-glossy hair, look no further. In an interview with The Edit, the twins' hairstylist, Mark Townsend, revealed that the actresses-turned-fashion designers swear by a DIY hair conditioner made out of coconut oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E. Townsend recommends applying the hair mask one to two times a week and leaving it in for an hour before washing it out and stepping out of the shower with luscious, silky-smooth hair.

“I recently made up a conditioner for the girls and told them to put it in their hair before swimming and while in the sun; it was coconut oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E. All things I picked up at the health food store!” Townsend said. “When they got back, they both asked me for more, and I could feel a huge difference in their hair. They use it a couple times a week and leave it in for up to an hour.”

Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson — Apple Cider Vinegar Toner

Toner is a step that a lot of beauty lovers skip in their skin-care routine, but with Scarlett Johansson's hack, the step just became so much more doable and affordable. In an interview with Elle U.K., Johansson revealed that she uses apple cider vinegar to maintain her pH balance and heal breakouts. The only thing she says you have to get over is the smell.

"A while back, I started researching natural skin care," she said. "It's a nice way to treat your skin if you don't want to use all those harsh chemicals that a dermatologist would recommend. If your skin is problematic or you're having a lot of breakouts, it's really healing. It's a little bit stinky, but if you're not sleeping over at your boyfriend's, it's really effective!"
