Celebrity beauty advice typically falls into one of three categories. Sometimes, it’s borderline-basic stuff, like drink more water and slather coconut oil on anything and everything. Other times, it’s a simple product recommendation. But every once in awhile, it’s a tip or hack that we’ve never heard before, like rubbing an oil concoction all over our body to eliminate bloat.

We’re partial to the latter because more often than not, it’s the kind of advice that doesn’t require us to empty our bank account or do a ton of research. Instead, all we need are a few ingredients from our kitchen and a mixing bowl. So if you’ve got a little time and skin that needs some TLC, here are a couple of A-list approved beauty recipes to try out.

In July 2018, the reality star-turned-actress told Byrdie her go-to recipe for beating bloat is a cup of custom tea.

“It includes fresh mint (I have a small mint plant in my kitchen so I have a constant stock of mint at all times), lots of fresh shaved ginger, lemon, and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Sometimes I’ll add a bit of honey,” she said.

In June 2018, the supermodel told Byrdie she prefers to keep her eyelashes moisturized and hair edges hydrated with an all-natural oil mix.

I do a mix of castor oil, coconut oil, lavender oil, and put it on a brush and apply it to my eyelashes and my hair edges for extra moisture,” Smalls said. “Since I’m constantly putting so much makeup on my face, I try to do this every day.”

“This mask is SO easy to make with kitchen ingredients you already have!," she said. In a small bowl, whisk one egg white until frothy, then squeeze in half a lemon and whisk again. “Apply mixture evenly to face,” instructs the video, then “rinse after 30 minutes.”

In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, the actress revealed she likes mixing baking soda with her go-to moisturizer whenever she needs to scrub away dirt and grime.

"You shouldn't do this too often, but if you really need a quick fix, mix a tiny bit of baking soda into your moisturiser and then you mush it all in and wash it off. So if you haven't got a lot around, it's great. I don't do it very often at all, maybe once a month?," she said.

In a guest column for Total Beauty, the TV and film actress shared her go-to for body exfoliation: a yummy brown sugar body scrub.

"I love to make my own body scrubs. Not only is it cost-effective, it also allows me to have complete control over the ingredients. I know they're natural -- and good enough to eat," she said. Here's the recipe:

1 cup organic brown sugar
1/2 cup local honey
1/2 cup organic coconut oil

Mix everything together and pop into a mason jar for storage.
