These great at-home treatments will leave you feeling refreshed, plus you can probably find many of the ingredients lying around your pantry right now!
Stay tuned for some super-easy DIY beauty treatments with great benefits!
Chapped lips are the bane of everyone’s existence. Well, that may be a bit over dramatic, but they are both uncomfortable and unsightly. If you are a lover of lipstick (who isn’t?), especially those with matte, drying formulas, a lip scrub is a great idea.
You can easily use these scrubs to buff away dryness. Try using a toothbrush or your fingers to apply, then massage into your lips and leave it on for about 10 minutes. Then rinse off for instantly fresher lips!
The Sugar Lip Scrub
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp honey
Did you know that honey has both soothing and moisturizing properties? It is also a natural antibacterial ingredient. Sugar is a natural exfoliant. Be sure to use brown sugar over regular sugar as it is less processed and provides a softer exfoliation.
The Coffee Lip Scrub
1tsp coffee grounds
½ tsp honey
½ tsp olive oil
Did you know that coffee grounds have natural exfoliating properties as well? Remember that the next time you are about to toss them! If you are a coffee lover or someone who enjoys the scent of coffee, this one's for you! This will give you an automatic “pick-me up” when you apply it in the morning.
Our hair works hard for us! It puts up with heat, chemicals, and styling tools. If your hair is feeling a bit dull lately, try a hair mask! These DIY hair masks will nourish your hair and scalp in just 20-30 minutes.
½ cup of pumpkin puree
¼ cup of coconut oil
You might associate pumpkin with your pumpkin spice latte or a delicious pie on Thanksgiving, but it actually has nourishing ingredients that will give your hair a boost of moisture. Coconut oil helps to strengthen your hair against breakage and the dreaded split ends.
¼ cup of plain yogurt
½ cup of sweet potatoes
3 tbsp of honey
This mask might also remind you of Thanksgiving, it uses the richness of sweet potatoes to nourish your hair. Did you know that sweet potatoes are high in Vitamin A? This promotes hair growth and elasticity. Why yogurt? It’s not just good in your smoothie, it’s acidic properties help remove build up on your scalp.
