diy brown sugar foot scrub

Mix 1 cup of brown sugar with enough coconut or almond oil, making sure the mixture is not too runny, and add a little lemon juice to create a paste. You can also add a little cinnamon or vanilla fragrance for a yummy smell. Soak your feet and then massage the mixture gently into your feet for a few minutes. Rinse and apply a nice foot cream. The brown sugar acts as an exfoliant and the coconut oil is a great moisturizing agent and can help heal and repair dry skin. Almond oil is an emollient and can help soften and restore moisture to the skin.

diy coffee facial

Use your used coffee grounds and mix it with whole milk to form a paste – if it is too runny add more grounds. You can also mix the grounds with yogurt if you don’t have any whole milk. Add a little cocoa powder to make it smell tasty. Gently massage the mixture into your face (avoiding your eyes and lips) and allow it to sit for about 20 min. The coffee is a great source of anti-oxidants and also constricts blood cells and helps reduce redness. The coffee can act as a firming agent or your skin, and the caffeine can reduce puffiness around the eye area (be careful not to get any in your eye).

cucumber eye compress

Cucumbers are full of water and when sliced up, cold, and placed over your eyes, they can help to relieve any puffiness, swelling, or dark circles, and can help brighten the skin. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and if needed, replace with a fresh, cold cucumber for a little longer.

milk and honey hair mask

Place a teaspoon of honey into a glass of milk (whole milk preferably). Apply to your scalp and pull through your hair. Leave on for an hour and rinse with shampoo; avoid clarifying shampoos. The milk acts as a moisturizing agent and the honey is a humectant so it holds the moisture in!

    Hello there! This article could not be written any better!
    Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept preaching about this. I’ll forward this article to him. Pretty sure he’s going
    to have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

    The Neutrogena Home Microdermabrasion system does not come with a cleanser, so you will need to cleanse the skin thoroughly with your own product.
    If applied correctly though, the diamond tip Nu – Brilliance actually does do an incredible job of removing the unwanted dead skin from your
    own total body. Extra precaution needs to be taken around the eyes
    and nose to avoid the possibility of damage from the crystals.

  13. It’s remarkable to pay a visit this site and reading the views of all mates concerning this article,
    while I am also zealous of getting know-how.

    as well as from our argument made at this place.
