homemade beauty products

I have been getting a lot of queries regarding homemade beauty products, so here is an entire piece with recipes that you can use.

My favourite ingredient is honey because regardless of your skin tone and type thus most of my home made solutions have honey or yogurt as an ingredient.

Organic rice can be used for a cleansing toner it actually is an ancient Asian recipe which removes oil and impurities.

Add half a cup of rice to a bowl and cover with water – just about an inch on top. Stir until it turns cloudy. Pour the rice water into a container and use a cotton pad to wipe all over your skin.

Cinnamon makes your lips look plumper and fuller because it naturally brings blood to the surface of your skin.

Smooth Vaseline over lips, pat a small amount of ground cinnamon on them and gently rub then wipe it off and apply your lipstick or lip balm.homemade beauty products

Apple cider vinegar is an excellent toner it helps with acne-prone skin and is used a lot in the natural haired community because of its PH balancing properties.

Dab a teeny bit on blemishes at night or mix with equal parts of distilled water for more sensitive faces.

The egg yolk contains moisturising fats and is a great way to rejuvenate and hydrate dry hair, and it keeps your roots nourished as well as making hair healthier.

Mix one or two egg yolks until foamy, and add a few drops of essential oils if you like. Smooth through hair after showering, cover with a warm towel, and leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse with cool water and shampoo.

Spread the remaining white egg over your face and leave for ten minutes until it dries and stiffens for a nourishing face mask.

Homemade yogurt face masks absolutely divine and totally healthy, just add teaspoon of homemade yogurt to any of the following combinations

It is also a cheap and easy remedy to alleviate tired eyes, reduce puffiness and dark circles. Just place a couple of slices over your eyes and relax for 15 minutes.

Another great mask is a teaspoon of turmeric, a teaspoon of brown sugar and olive oil (if you have dry skin) or yogurt, put on your face at night for fifteen minutes then rinse off.

A rule of thumb is to only put on your face what you would eat, because everything you slather on does go into your bloodstream.
