DIY Beauty: Kitchen Beauty Secrets

You do not have to go out and spend a fortune to get a unique DIY beauty, spa treatment. You can make some pretty nifty facial masks and skin treatments from simple, everyday items you have in your kitchen. Not only is it cheaper for you to make your own products but more natural as well. If you make it you know everything you put in it, which means no surprise ingredient your skin will pay for later. Below are just a couple of different facial mask and skin treatments you can make yourself, I like to cal them my kitchen beauty secrets.

Egg Facial

Not only are eggs good for your body but your skin as well. You can use either the egg white or yolk for this facial, which one you choose is based on your skin type. If your face is oily use the egg yolk to help dry up some of the excess oil. If it is dry use the egg white to help hydrate and replenish your face, both the egg white and yolk are also very helpful at removing black and white heads.

What You Will Need

1.2 Eggs

2.1 Bowl


I know so many ingredients right notice my sarcasm.


Instructions

1.Take your egg and separate the yolk from the egg white, which ever one you're using place in your bowl discard the other.

2.Beat your egg white or yolk (Remember egg white dry skin, yolk oily skin) until it is well blended.

3.Rub the egg everywhere on your face but your eyes and mouth.

4.Let it dry, which usually takes ten to 15 minutes, try not to talk to much while the egg is drying on your face. This will keep the egg from flaking and falling off your face.

5.Once the egg is completely dry wash it off your face with plain old warm water nothing else and enjoy how soft your face feels.

Coffee Body Scrub

Coffee is awesome, not only can you cook with it or drink it but you can use it as a body scrub as well. The grainy texture mixed with the super antioxidant benefits of coffee make it a perfect way to help put some pep in your step when used in the morning. Not only does this scrub help make your skin soft it adds a slight color to it as well.


What You Will Need

1.2 Cups of dry coffee grounds

2.Shower



Instructions

1.The first thing you will need to do is to dampen your body in the shower. Step out and stand on a towel grab your coffee grounds and rub them on your body in a circular motion.

2.Then step back in your tub and shower as usual, I know this treatment can be rather messy but wait until you see the effects this has on your skin.

Lemon Face Brightner

I like to call lemons mother nature's little wonder fruit, the health benefits this super fruit has on both the inside and outside of your body is quite amazing. Lemon juice has an anti-aging effect on your skin if used in the right amounts. Lemons have virtually erased most of the sun spots I used to have on my face, now please keep in mind while lemons are natural people would sensitive skin should probably skip this treatment.


What You Will Need

1.The juice of two fresh squeezed lemons

2.2 Cotton balls


Instructions

1.Take one of your cotton balls and place it in your lemon juice until thoroughly saturated.

2.Apply the juice to a clean face in a circular motion avoiding your eyes and mouth.

I've always found natural, homemade beauty treatments work better than most commercial ones. Would you believe I haven't tried lemon juice, coffee grounds or eggs?? These ingredients are so simple and easily accessible, I have to give it a try! Thanks so much.

I love using lemon juice as a beauty treatment. I have never heard of the one using coffee. It is quite interesting. I'm thinking it would be great for evening out my skin tone. Sure, it might be a little bit messy, but sometimes we have to suffer a little for beauty. Right?
