3 super quick DIY beauty treatments you can make in your kitchen
What better way to spend an evening than indulging in some me-time and prepping your skin for the rest of the week?
And don't worry, you don't even have to fork out on expensive beauty treatments, instead, try whipping these up in kitchen.
The best bit about making your own skincare is that not only will it save you money, it also means that what you are putting on your skin is completely natural and non-toxic.
Pinterest is choc-a-block with recipes for diy beauty treatments, but to start you off, these three are just brilliant – and really easy to make:
Brown sugar body scrub: Mix a cup of brown sugar with a good quality cold pressed oil (eg olive, almond or macadamia) into a paste, then add six drops of sweet orange essential oil. Apply in the shower – while skin is warm – using large circular movements towards the heart. Rinse off to reveal hydrated and heavenly-smelling skin.
Lemon and Greek yogurt face mask: Lemon is brilliant for making your skin more radiant and get rid of drak spots, and the probiotics in yogurt can help clear up acne. Simply mix freshly squeezed lemon juice into some yogurt and apply to your clean face. Leave until it hardens, then wipe off with a soft cloth.
Gentle hydrating exfoliator: Mix two tablespoons of almond meal with one tablespoon of Manuka honey. Apply to face in small circular motion then rinse off with warm water.
