As fun as it is to peruse the drugstore aisles and test new skin and hair care products, sometimes it’s nice to know what’s going on your skin and eventually into your body. That’s why all-natural beauty products are such a hit among health-conscious celebrities such as Kourtney Kardashian, Shay Mitchell and Adriana Lima.

But aside from their toxin-free qualities, all-natural DIY beauty products — from lip scrubs and body lotions to hair masks — are a great way of using leftover fruits, vegetables and other healthy but maybe not that tasty ingredients and transforming them into nourishing skin and hair care products. To prove the power of an avocado hair mask or a brown sugar body scrub, we rounded up 10 all-natural celebrity-approved beauty hacks to whip up in your kitchen. Get cooking ahead.

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. Chopra revealed her natural beauty hack in a video for Vogue in which she revealed 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.

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."

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. Apple cider vinegar contains natural antibacterial qualities, and she 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 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, one you can find in your salad. In an interview with Insider, the actor revealed her all-natural lip-tint hack. "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."

Instead of spending money on store-bought lotion, Leighton Meester creates her own with a slew of natural ingredients that are not only delicious to have on hand, but 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."

If you're looking for a body scrub that will brighten and polish your skin, Cate Blanchett has the recipe for you. “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.”

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.

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 actors-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.”

Toner is a step 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!"
