3 DIY Treats For Happy Skin!

Hii beautifuls!

Okay, so we all have our bad skin days. Flaky lips, greasy faces, you know what I’m talking about. Gross, icky stuff that most of us have to deal with.

Soo, I wanted to share three feel-good skin yummies…that you can whip up with ingredients straight from your kitchen!

First is a lovely honey lip-scrub to cure your flakey lips:

HONEY LIP SCRUB

Supplies: 

Organic honey

Granulated sugar 

Small container

Mixing tool

 Directions: 

Okay, so this is a very, very easy recipe. Add the two ingredients into a small container, and combine then with your mixing tool (I used a chopstick). After it turns into a paste-like consistency, it’s finished! You have a super-sweet lip scrub that gets the job done.

Also..it lasts for almost ever. Even kept at room temperature!

Second is a oatmeal-yogurt hydrating mask to soften your skin.

OATS ‘N YOGURT MASK:

Supplies: 

Quaker Oats (preferably rolled oats)

Organic honey

Organic plain yogurt

Bowl

Large mixing spoon

Directions: 

Mix your honey and plain yogurt in the bowl, and then add the oats. It’s okay to estimate how much of each ingredient you want…you don’t have to be super precise.

This mask has a lot of amazing benefits. Oats are a natural exfoliator that is also very soothing, honey is great for acne, sun damage, and is full of antioxidants, and yogurt contains enzymes and lactic acid to hydrate and sooth the skin.

You can put this mask on a sunburn, use it as a scrub, or use it as a cleanser. Whatever suits you.

Last but not least is a delicious cucumber toner to be a great refresher.

CUCUMBER TONER:

Supplies:

1-2 organic cucumbers

Witch hazel or rose water

Grater

Colander 

Bowl

Sterilized glass jar or bottle 

Directions: 

First off, grate your cleaned cucumber into a colander set directly over a bowl. Once grated, squeeze the grated cucumber to collect the juice. Measure the amount of juice you have, and add an equal amount of witch hazel/rose water to finish off your toner.

As soon as your finished, pour it in the bottle and store it in your fridge. (In my opinion, it’s best used when chilled!)

It keeps for up to ten days, and is really a treat for your skin. Cucumber is a natural soother, and contains a bunch of antioxidants for beautiful skin.

Anyway, that’s all for skin treats!

Special thanks to beautybanter.com, thechalkboardmag.com, and Michelle Phan for inspiring me to make these concoctions. ;}

I’m going to go and sit on the couch, eat a Snickers and watch Dumbo or something. ❤

ILY.
