Horsetail for stronger nails, cinnamon to plump lips and honey for beating acne

From vampire facials to £500 space dust face creams, there's no shortage of weird and wonderful lotions and potions promising to boost your beauty regime.
But did you know that a simple - and cheap - herb or spice from your kitchen cupboard may be just as effective as an expensive cosmetic?
From slicing an orange and using it as a facial toner to slathering strawberries on your face to beat age spots, FEMAIL has rounded up the ten best all-natural beauty tricks that can be found in your kitchen.
3. Honey: The goopy substance is renowned for its moisturising, antiseptic and skin-conditioning properties. Because honey is a natural antibacterial, antifungal and antiseptic substance, it has a whole host of skin-boosting benefits. Thanks to the hydrogen peroxide it contains, it is incredibly healing so can be slathered onto skin as a mask to treat infected acne spots and lighten skin.
8. Horsetail: Horsetail is packed with a whole host of great minerals and nutrients, including manganese, calcium and iron. Well-known for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, it can be combined with olive oil and rubbed onto nails to boost growth and reduce white spots.
9. Cinnamon: Want a plump pout to rival Angelina Jolie's but don't want to use anything too potent? Cinnamon, which is known for its antioxidant effects, can be rubbed onto lips with a dab of Vaseline and when washed off, it will leave lips tingly and plumped.
