Homemade Honey-Sugar Lip Scrub
You lips, just like the skin on your face, need some “scrubbing” every once in a while. Especially when those windy, dry months come and your skin cells start shedding like crazy.
Many companies offer lip scrubs, but trust me – they are not worth investing in. Making your own lip scrub, at home, with 3 ingredients only, is easier than you think! And you don’t have to be DIY beauty guru to do it in your own kitchen.
When you exfoliate your lips, you smooth out their surface, which allows you to achieve flawless application with your favorite lipstick or lip gloss.
Exfoliation stimulates blood flow, hence brings more nutrients to the skin, enhancing the natural color of your lips, while making them look plumper.

Jojoba Oil & Rose Water Homemade Cleanser
Cleansing your face before going to bed, regardless of whether you wear makeup or not, is a must. Skipping cleansing is sure to “reward you with” clogged pores, dull complexion and unhealthy looking skin.
Quite often, we buy cleansing products that turn out to be too harsh and leave our skin dehydrated and stripped of its natural oils. Using harsh cleansers leads to premature ageing, formation of dry patches and increased sebum production. Stressed out skin is not happy skin and is has its ways of showing it to us.
If you think that facial cleansers are the type of product that you can’t make at home, ask Pinterest. There are many great recipes on the net for different skin types and different skin concerns – they are easy to follow, do not require expensive, hard-to-find ingredient and are all-natural!

DIY Coconut Oil-Honey Face Mask
Indulging on a nourishing facial mask every once in a while is not just a pampering ritual. Facial masks rejuvenate the skin, restore its softness and glow and improve its overall appearance. And because we love-love-love coconut oil, our favorite DIY facial mask contains… well, you guessed it – pure, 100% organic coconut oil!

DIY Anti-Aging Facial Serum
Many women think that serums are just another useless addition to their beauty routine that is not worth spending money on. While it is true that applying serum is not a must, it’s definitely beneficial. Since serums are more concentrated than moisturizer, they deliver more nutrients and this way help the skin achieve balance on its own.
Since serums are quite expensive, many of us do not feel like splurging on them. For those of you, who want healthy, youthful skin, but want to save money – why not try DIY?

Herb-Infused Body Oil
Regardless of whether you prefer lotion, butter or oil, moisturizing your body is just as important as moisturizing your face. The reason we love body oils is because when you make them at home you can infuse them with virtually anything – essential oils, herbs, plant extracts. Body oils soak into the skin very fast and leave it silky smooth and baby-soft.

DIY Argan Oil Body Scrub
Coffee is not just the warm drink that wakes you up in the morning but also the DIY beauty gurus most loved ingredient. It’s packed with potent antioxidants, it smells ah-ma-zing and can withdraw toxins out of the skin. And when combined with Argan oil… mmm!
Even though it’s super simple to make, this homemade body scrub feels like luxurious home-spa ritual. It will leave your skin refreshed and toned and will boost the formation of new healthy cells. Did I mention it reduces the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite? I think I’ve managed to convince you to try it...

Hydrating All-Natural Facial Mist
I love facial mist! No, actually, I adore them! (by the way, this one is my favorite >> La Mav Rose Hydrating Mist)
Not only they hydrate and soothe the skin, but they work as makeup softening spray, which makes them idea for touch-ups during the day. With just a few spritzes my skin starts glowing. The best thing about facial mists is that they are super easy to “formulate” (and you don’t have to be a chemist!). If you love the smell of roses and the feeling of refreshed skin, this recipe is for you!

Non-Toxic Homemade Sunscreen
Speaking of beautiful skin, we cannot go without mentioning the importance of sun protection. Excess exposure to UV rays is the leading cause of premature aging, associated with the appearance of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. However, since most commercially available sunscreens contain ingredients with questionable safety, we decided to turn to nature and see what it has to offer. If you don’t want to take the risk of using products that may harm your health, there is a natural alternative that works just as good! Try it!
