DIY Natural Beauty Recipes

Sometimes our skin and hair need a little extra attention. If you don’t have the time or money to purchase an expensive salon product or most importantly, if you would like to go strictly organic, making your own DIY Natural Beauty Recipe might be the best option.

Here are five of our favorite DIY recipes that could save your life!

Caviar Mask

Caviar is an acquired taste and is always served during the most glamorous occasions but it also has beauty benefits too!  Caviar is rich in antioxidants, omega-3, omega-6, protein and offers several anti-aging benefits. Because of these properties, Caviar also helps with the production of collagen and is known to minimize inflammation. To make your own caviar mask, you will need:

  • 1oz of black caviar
  • 2 teaspoons of plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of grape seed oil
  • 3 drops of bergamot oil

Mix all of the ingredients and gently apply over the face and neck. Allow to sit for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a damp washcloth.

 

Peppermint Massage Oil
Peppermint essential oil can help with almost everything. It’s known for easing nausea and headaches.  It’s also a great stress reliever when it comes to mental exhaustion, depression and daily stressors.
To make your own peppermint massage oil, you will need:
  • 1/2 cup of grape seed oil
  • 9 drops of peppermint essential oil
  • 3 drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil

Mix all of the ingredients and place into a small apothecary jar to store in your nightstand. This oil is excellent to massage into the temple during stressful moments and headaches. It’s also a great way to pamper and relax your significant other.

Strawberry Lip Scrub
This recipe is a sweet-smelling and tasting lip exfoliant that will soften and hydrate lips any time of the year by removing dead skin cells.
To make your own strawberry lip scrub, you will need:
1 1/2 teaspoon of strawberry-flavored gelatin
1 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of granulated sugar
1 small plastic container with lid
Gently mix the ingredients in a small bowl. Massage the scrub over lips in a gentle, circular motion. Remove with warm water and pat dry.
Damaged Hair Treatment

To treat your own damaged hair, you will need:

1 egg yolk
2 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey

If you have long hair, be sure to double the recipe above. Whisk ingredients together.  Apply the mask evenly throughout damp hair one inch past the roots and all the way to the ends.  Tie up hair in a loose top bun. Then, cover hair with a shower cap and let sit for 30 minutes. Wash hair with shampoo and conditioner and style as usual.

 

Homemade Toner for Acne Prone Skin

Clear skin

Acne is a pain isn’t it?  Especially adult acne but it happens. Make sure you’re eating a healthy/organic diet, drink lots of water and keep your make up brushes clean.  Another simple tip is to treat your skin when it’s acting up.

To make your own acne curing toner, you will need:

  • 1/2 cup green tea
  • 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • spray bottle or jar with lid

Mix ingredients together. After cleansing skin, apply your home made toner with a cotton ball on skin.  Store this toner in the refrigerator–it should keep for about two weeks!
