Happy Valentines Day!
In celebration of valentines, I wanted to give you one of my favorite DIY self care recipes. One of the things I love doing is making homemade beauty remedies. I think it started when my kids were really young. When you don’t have time to get a facial or do anything of that sort, I try to figure out my own way to have time for myself.
Here are some tried and true reciepes that work.
A refreshing and brightening mask:
- Coco powder
- Greek yogurt
Mix Coco powder, 1.5 teaspoons, greek yogurt 2 heaping tablespoons, honey, 1 tablespoon, and lemon, 1/2 teaspoon. Warm in microwave for 10 seconds, paint on your face and neck and décolleté with a soft makeup brush. Leave on for 20 minutes to wake your skin up and feel refreshed! These components also brightens dark spots on your skin!
For your lips:
- Brown sugar
- hyaluronic acid
Mix brown sugar, 1 teaspoon,and honey, 1 teaspoon in a bowl. Apply mixture to a warm washcloth and gently scrub your lips followed by hyaluronic acid, I use Fillerina, + a lip balm for night time makes for soft lips when you wake up!
If you ever try any of these, let me know!
