DIY beauty recipes

Pampering yourself with body scrub or face mask is a great way to take care of your skin. No extra funds for luxurious masks or facial products?  There are many facial products that suit all pockets, however, it is also fun to make your own. Did you know that you probably have enough ingredients in your kitchen to make your homemade facial products? Coffee, tea, oil, salt, yoghurt among others can be your best ally to stay young and beautiful.

Charcoal Mask

We usually associate coal with uncleanliness, but with the new Charcoal Mask which has gone viral on Facebook and YouTube, many of us are convinced that it’s heaven-sent for the skin. You can buy these masks in any beauty shop… but why not make your own? All you need is 2 capsules of activated charcoal, half teaspoon of bentonite clay and a cup of water. Mix the elements and apply the mask on your face for 15 minutes. Once you washed it off, be ready to switch off the lights as your face will glow!

Yoghurt Mask

Give a new shine to the dull skin on your face by using that tasty yoghurt from your fridge. It is really simple to make! The ingredients you will need are fresh rose petals, organic rosewater, yoghurt and honey. Crush the petal roses in a bowl, and add some rosewater, yoghurt and honey to the combination. You just have to apply this blend on your face for 10 minutes. Then, rinse it off and enjoy a fresh face.

Coffee body scrub

It’s the perfect timing for a body scrub as it’s the time of the year to get in your swimsuits. Don’t worry about going out to buy the ideal scrub, as the perfect ingredients are already in your kitchen! Just grab some grinded coffee beans, coconut oil and a cup of citrus or lemon juice.  Dip all of these in a jar, and let the mixture rest for 15 minutes. Apply this nice smelling mixture on your body, and slowly exfoliate in a circular motion. Be coffee-licious for a few minutes, then get ready to mess up your shower! But once all the mixture has been washed off, you will be really pleased with your soft, fresh and smooth skin.

Vanilla Lip Scrub

Do your lips feel dry and flaky? Try out a lip scrub made of sugar, vanilla and coconut oil which will give your lips a new life! Take two tablespoons of brown sugar, white sugar and melted coconut oil, and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract. Store them in a small jar, and apply it to your lips all day long. But don’t eat the whole jar! You can be sure to have the perfect pink lips.

Natural Make up Remover

Coming back from a party and seeing that your make-up remover is over can be a crisis! But that’s no longer a hassle if you have extra virgin oil or coconut oil on your kitchen racks. To take off your make-up, all you need is to apply some extra virgin oil or coconut oil on your face using a cotton pad. You will be amazed how quickly and easily all the make-up will be wiped.
