This year I have decided to start doing things a little differently. Starting with my face, I have been wanting to try organic products now for a while, and particularly making them myself but just didn’t really know where to begin, so naturally I turned to Pinterest! I found 3 amazing diy beauty products that you will find in your kitchen that i want to share with you today.
There are so many things you can do and try that it just seemed so overwhelming so I decided to just start with these three things and go from there.
Here are the DIY’s I am doing:
1. Mint Leaves for Pimples
No matter who you are, young or old you are bound to get a pimple at some point in your life. At the time I was researching Pinterest I had a lovely one right on my chin! Great!
The mint leaves will dry up the acne and help clean up your pores. Since I already had mint leaves in ice cubes in my freezer (I keep them on hand for smoothies) I figured I would just apply the cube to my pimple.
It worked great! I couldn’t believe it; the zit had reduced significantly in size by the next day, barley noticeable at all!
2. Banana for Soothing Face Mask
This one is so easy I couldn’t believe it! Just take a Banana, mash it up and smear it all over your face. Leave it on for about half an hour. It will start to harden and you will feel a nice calming cooling sensation that is rather quite relaxing. Then wash off the mask with warm water. Your skin will feel so amazingly soft. I love it!
3. Coconut Oil for Face Cream
The amount of uses for Coconut oil is insane! I think this is one of my favorites now. If you are like me you will have a big tub of Coconut oil in your pantry, so give it a try. You will thank me. Just rub it on like you would your ordinary night lotion, depending on how oily or dry your skin is will determine how much you will need.
I have also decided to start replacing my facial soap and eye makeup remover with Coconut oil as well.
To wash your face with Coconut oil just use about ½ tsp. and rub it between your fingers, massage it gently into you skin and wash off with warm water.
For eye make-up remover, yes, water-proof make-up as well, coat your lashes and eyelids and gently massage for a few seconds or apply with a cotton pad. Simply wash off with warm water.
I can’t believe how much money I have been spending of products when I could have just gone in my pantry and basically made this delicious recipe of nutritious goodies for my face! It’s amazing; I can’t wait to try more…
Next blog will be my DIY hair experiment…stay tuned! Till next time
