DIY Beauty

So, I am a big fan of DIY Beauty Recipes! Here are a few of my favorites! Enjoy!

Oatmeal Yogurt Mask (For All Skin Types)
1 tablespoon oatmeal, finely ground
1 tablespoon plain yogurt
a few drops of honey
Add the yogurt to the oatmeal in a small bowl and mix together. Warm a few drop of honey. To do this, warm a spoon under hot water for a minute, then add a few drops of honey to the spoon. Stir the honey into the yogurt and oatmeal mixture. Apply the mask to face. Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse off with several splashes of warm water.

Banana Mask for Oily Skin

1 banana, preferably ripe (you can keep ripe bananas in the freezer. Let it thaw before using)
1 tbsp honey
an orange or a lemon

Mix the banana and honey together in a bowl. Add a few drops of juice from an orange or a lemon. Apply to face for 15 minutes, then rinse.

Classic Eye De-Puffer

2 chamomile tea bags or 2 slices cucumber

Make a cup of tea for you and a friend. Remove tea bags and place in refrigerator until chilled. Place cool tea bags on closed eyes for 10 minutes. Or put cucumber slices in fridge until chilled and place over closed eyes for 10 minutes.
Face Scrub (Brightening)

1/2 lemon, cut in half.
Bowl of sugar

Dip lemon into sugar, and gently exfoliate your face!
