Spring is known for a lot of things – warmer days, blooming flowers, cute pastel colors. But spring also brings ingredients that are perfect for making your own DIY skincare and beauty products. We’ve compiled four of our favorite DIY skincare and beauty treatments that are cheap, easy and effective. So grab your girls for a spontaneous girl’s night and give these a try!
Mayonnaise-Baby Oil Dry Skin Treatment
2 tablespoons real mayonnaise
1 teaspoon baby oil
Combine both ingredients.
Smooth onto face, neck, rough elbows and knees or anywhere else you feel might benefit from it. Leave for 20 minutes.
Rinse off thoroughly with tepid water
Honey-Avocado Invigorating and Revitalizing Hair Treatment (www.dailygreen.com)
1 medium avocado — peeled and stoned
2 tablespoons honey
Mash together the ingredients in a small bowl.
Massage into hair.
Leave for 20-30 minutes.
Wash hair as usual.
Carrot Butter Milk Squash (www.totalbeauty.com)
For oily skin types, spring is when nature brings the rabbits' BFF and your skin's cure -- the vitamin A laden carrot.
2 tablespoons of fresh carrot juice
2 tablespoons powdered buttermilk
Mix the juice and buttermilk until you get a smooth paste.
Then, spread the mixture over your clean skin and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove by rinsing with lukewarm water and gently pat your face dry with a fluffy towel.
Green Tea Face Scrub
We have posted this video before, but we can't get enough of this scrub. Give it a try!
Our previous blog on the DIY Oatmeal Honey Face Mask got such great feedback from our readers, that we want to continue to share with you fun skin care routines you can do at home in between facials at Silk Touch.
We searched the web, asked our friends and clients for the best DIY skin care treatments and we are happy to share with you the two winners – Green Tea Facial Scrub and At-Home Pore Strips! Even better – we were able to find Youtube tutorials for each of them, that way you can learn to make them even easier!
Green Tea Facial Scrub
DIY Pore Strips
While these are great “in-between” treatments, theycould never replace the benefits you see by getting a professional facial or chemical peel.
