5 Homemade Products for Beautiful Skin & Healthy Hair
Recently, we've been on a serious DIY beauty kick. We’ve tried and tested quite a few recipes and this week we’d like to share with you 5 of our best DIY beauty discoveries. Because making masks and scrub with all-natural ingredients is fun. Let’s have fun together!
Homemade Facial Steam
Apart from being incredibly relaxing for both your body and your mind, herbal steam facials benefit your skin and allow you to achieve radiant complexion naturally. The steam boosts circulation improving the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the skin, which gives you an instant glow-boost. Steam facials help to decongest skin and unclog pores, reducing the risk of unwanted breakouts. Last but not least, it’s an affordable way to have an at-home spa.

DIY Turmeric Honey Probiotic Face Mask
This mask is a true miracle worker! Not only does it leave your skin glowing with health, but it also helps reduce blemishes, pigmentation and fine lines.
Rich in potent antioxidants and bio-actives with anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric protects skin cells from oxidative stress, preventing premature ageing. The mild exfoliating properties of yoghurt boost cell turnover to reveal smoother and more radiant skin surface. The high doses of vitamins and minerals in honey, nourish and strengthen the skin, improving its overall tone and appearance.

Homemade Peppermint Foot Scrub
With summer approaching, it’s time to pay attention to our feet. Since our feet will be “on display” throughout the whole summer season it’s essential to make sure they are nourished and hydrated. If you don’t have time to go to the salon for a pedicure, why not try giving yourself one at home?
A homemade feet scrub + a rich, thick cream applied every evening before bed, can do wonders for the skin on your feet. You’ll immediately feel the difference.

DIY Pink Grapefruit Lip Balm
Lips need hydration, nourishment and protection all year round (regardless of the season), and we believe that every woman should have one in her makeup bag. Lip balms are relatively easy to make and there are plenty of DIY recipes on the internet to choose from. This recipe, however, is among the best ones we’ve tried. We can’t miss sharing it with you!
PS: This balm is addictive! * (you’ve been warned) *
The scent of grapefruit is so energizing and refreshing – we simply can’t get enough of it!

Nourishing Rosemary Hair Serum
After trying many commercially available lotions and potions that promise to revive your locks and reverse the damage caused by excess heat styling, dyes and sun-exposure, we always go back to the good old natural oils. Natural oils nourish, sooth and balance the scalp, whilst strengthening the hair and restoring its vitality. Adding essential oils to the mix increases the effectiveness of the treatment by improving microcirculation (when applied to the scalp) and gives the whole ritual of taking care of your hair a hint of a spa experience.
