We all know that in 2017 there are a million and one skin treatments on the shelf and/or aestheticians ready to help us with skin care but sometimes I just want to treat my skin in the privacy of my own home while pouring a glass of wine and watching my favorite movie. I’m no dermatologist but I love me a good DIY so here are 10 easy to find ingredients to add to your skin care ritual at home.
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Aloe Vera
- Almond Oil
- Castor Oil
- Coconut Oil
- Raw Honey
- Sea Salt
- Tea Tree Oil
Many of these can be used by themselves as a cleanser, toner or moisturizer! You can also turn it up a notch and try a sea salt and honey facial scrub, a facial cleanser consisting of castor oil mixed with coconut oil and/or almond oil, or you can even use lemon as a spot treatment and/or toner. I’m going to share one of my favorites below. What are one of your DIY skin care favorites? Write us and tell us what you try and your results after all sharing is caring lol 🙂
Take 1 fully ripe fresh avocado, remove the skin and the seed, and mash it up in a bowl until its smooth and creamy in texture. Add 1 tablespoon of honey and stir the mixture until it turns into a uniform paste. Apply it to your skin evenly and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse your face with lukewarm water and pat dry your face with a soft towel. ALL DONE!
As my 7 year old daughter would say “easy peasy lemon squeezy” lol!
