Super Easy DIY Beautifying Treatments
I admit I absolutely love being pampered & enjoying professionally done fancy facials & beauty treatments. (I mean...WHO doesn't lol?) But, girls, let's face it sometimes..no matter what the reason..we just can't enjoy such luxuries as "often" as we'd like! But what if I told you that you could get the same beauty results with stuff that you have in your kitchen cabinets right now? Sounds too good to be true right? Well, I researched several beauty expert "at-home skincare" recommendations & wanted to share them with you lovely ladies. :)
Anti-aging guru Dr. Josie L. Tenore is all about the easy & effective egg white facial. Simply whip up 2 egg whites until frothy, apply to the face & let it sit for 15 minutes for a rejuvenating, anti-aging, anti-wrinkle mask.
Get feet nice & smooth with Benardett K. Jno-Finn’s simple foot exfoliator. The founder of Senica Naturals suggests creating a footbath with your used coffee grinds. Not only will you get a great scrub, but the coffee acts as a natural deodorizer. & it will prevent your feet from falling asleep!
Emilie Davidson Hoyt, founder of Lather.com, recommends an easy way to reveal fresh, clear skin. Simply combine 1 cup fresh pineapple, 1/2 cup fresh papaya, 1/2 cup fresh orange, and 1/2 teaspoon honey. Purée in blender. Leave on skin 5-10 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. The gentle fruit peel contains natural enzymes & alpha-hydroxy acids that help to remove dead skin cells.
On the road without your body scrub or exfoliator? Traveling business guru & mom Carol Margolis is on the case with an easy exfoliant. Add white or raw sugar to the lotion provided by the hotel. Rub the mixture on your body just before showering to remove flaky skin.
Hope these easy DIY suggestions help you girls out! Let me know if you have any other homemade treatments you like to use yourself...I'd love to try them out too :) Have a great day!
