7. Green Tea- Use tea bags as a toner or to place on eyes for a soothing effect. Drink at least 2 cups of organic decaffeinated green tea a day.
8. Aloe- You can buy a aloe plant and cut and peel out the gel and use it as moisturizer. You can also add it to juice for a detoxifier

Stay tuned there's more to come. Most of these products can be found at The Vitamin Shoppe, Whole Foods, Sephora, Ulta, CVS and Walgreens.
