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. It is both cheaper and safer to use something you create yourself. The fact that you control how much ingredients and the type of ingredients you use makes it a great option for people with sensitive skin. Below are just a couple of different facial mask and skin treatments you can make yourself, I like to call them my kitchen beauty secrets, and they will have your skin smooth and ready for all those beautiful, special occasion dresses.
Eggs are a very good source of protein which can be very beneficial for both the inside and outside of our bodies. 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 and help clear up any breakouts you may have. 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 as well.
What You Will Need
3. 1 Fork or spoon
I know so many ingredients right, notice the hint of sarcasm.
1.Take your eggs and separate the yolk from the egg white, which ever one you're using place that into 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, it takes less than two to three minutes to do this.
3.Rub the egg everywhere on your face avoiding your eyes and mouth, eggs are a natural alternative but will still sting if you get it in your eyes.
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 coffee has makes it a great exfoliate. Coffee is also full of antioxidants, which has been proven to turn back the hands of time. The benefits of coffee make it a perfect additive to add into your daily skincare regimen. Not only does this scrub help make your skin soft ,it also adds a slight color to your skin as well.
What You Will Need
1.2 Cups of dry coffee grounds
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 with sensitive skin should probably skip this treatment due to the acidity lemons tend to have.
What You Will Need
1.The juice of two fresh squeezed lemons
2. 2 Cotton balls
1.Take one of your cotton balls and place it in your lemon juice until thoroughly saturated, this usually takes less than a minute.
2.Apply the juice to a clean washed face in a circular motion avoiding your eyes and mouth.
