I know we get flooded with beauty tips on a daily basis, but it’s a little different when the beauty tips come from an revered doctor who was deemed one of the most influential people and Doctor of the Year! Dr. Mehmet Oz provides us with valuable info on all sorts of health topics and since this guy seems to know what he’s talking about, I thought I’d round up 9 of the many brilliant beauty tips courtesy of Dr. Oz!
1. DIY Facelift
One of the beauty tips that I had to share with you is the DIY facelift! There are 3 different concoctions to make; a smoothing exfoliator, a tightening toner and a plumping moisturizer facial mask, but they all contain 4 ingredients or less. Why go out and pay for these products when you can make your own!
Step 1: Smoothing Exfoliator
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Mix together the brown sugar and olive oil to create a paste. Apply to face and massage for a few minutes. Rinse off with warm water. The brown sugar will smooth out skin while the olive oil moisturizes.
Step 2: Tightening Toner
1 cup rose water
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp witch hazel
5 drops almond essential oil
Combine the ingredients together and mix well. Dab the mixture your face with a cotton ball and wait for it to dry. Both the witch hazel and rosewater are astringents, which tighten and shrink pores. The almond oil has antioxidants that help skin with building new cells.
Step 3: Plumping Moisturizing Facial Mask
2 tbsp of your favorite moisturizer
1 egg white
2 pinches turmeric
1 tsp Manuka honey
Mix the moisturizer, egg white, turmeric and honey together to make a paste. Apply to the face evenly, avoiding the eyes, and leave the mask on for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water. The egg white tightens, while the turmeric and honey stimulates the skin and plumps it up, helping to build collagen to create a smoother look.
