Not only are these treatments easy, economical and fun to do, you can also customize them to suit your certain skin type, make them all bacon scented, or give them away as gifts! Try one or all of these 7 homemade treatments at home to ease yourself out of those winter blues and put some fun in your nights in! All of the ingredients below can be purchased at health food stores or online.
1. Lip Balm
I have what some would call a lip balm addiction, I can't seem to go without it and I can never get enough. This is one of the easiest DIY beauty treatments to make and there are many ways to do it. The simplest way is to get some beeswax, coconut oil, fragrance oil (optional), and sweet almond oil together, melt it on a double boiler, and pour into a container -- and voila!
You no longer have to try and book an appointment at a super swanky, hoity-toity spa to get a microdermabrasion beauty treatment. You can simply walk into your kitchen cupboard and grab that box of baking soda to gently exfoliate your skin and mimic the same effects as microdermabrasion. Simply mix some baking soda and warm water together, and use as you would a cleanser.
3. Face Mask
Face masks are some of the most popular DIY beauty treatments, so don't walk out of the kitchen yet! Grab some yogurt, it's okay if it's a few days past its expiration date, mix with honey (raw honey is best as it has antibacterial properties), and apply all over your face for a soothing and refreshing facial mask. Try to refrain from eating it after you're done with the mask!
