Keep reading for our best tips on effective DIY beauty solutions.

Face Masks

Facial masks are an ideal way to pamper and nourish your skin. Here are a few recipes tailored specifically for different skin types:

  • Oily Skin: To treat oily skin, combine 1.5 Tbsp bentonite clay powder, 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp honey, and 1 drop of essential oil of your choice. Apply this combination to your face 15-20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.
  • Dry Skin: To revitalize dry skin, combine ½ mashed avocado with 1 Tbsp each of honey and plain yogurt. Apply to your face for 10-15 minutes before removing it with a warm washcloth.
  • Acne-Prone Skin: Combine 1 Tbsp oats with 1 Tbsp natural yogurt and a few drops of honey. Apply to your skin for 10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.

Hair Masks

Just like our skin, our hair requires nourishment and repair. Here are some easy recipes tailored for different hair types:

  • Dry Hair:To give dry hair some much-needed love, combine 2 Tbsp honey with 4 Tbsp coconut oil and 1 mashed avocado. Apply this treatment directly to your scalp. Leave this mixture for 15-20 minutes before washing it out with shampoo.
  • Oily Hair: To remedy oily roots, mix a few drops of lemon juice and tea tree essential oil with 3 Tbsp aloe vera gel. Apply this mixture directly to your scalp, leaving it for 20 minutes before washing it off with shampoo.
  • Dandruff-Prone Hair: To address dandruff-prone hair, combine 8-10 drops of tea tree oil with 1-2 Tbsp unrefined coconut oil. Apply this mixture to the scalp, massaging well. Leave on for 30-60 minutes before washing off with shampoo.

Lip Scrub

Making a DIY lip scrub is an easy way to exfoliate your lips and eliminate dry skin. For this one, combine 1 Tbsp sugar, a pinch of cinnamon powder, 1 tsp olive oil, and ½ Tbsp honey. Apply this paste to your lips for 1-2 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.

Body Scrub

Exfoliating and rejuvenating your skin are critical components of overall wellness. This easy recipe calls for 1 cup coconut oil, 2 cups raw or granulated sugar, 1 Tbsp vanilla extract, ½ tsp cinnamon, ¼ tsp ginger, ¼ nutmeg, and ⅛ tsp clove. Mix all ingredients together, then gently massage this paste onto your body using circular strokes before rinsing off with warm water.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening services can be expensive. Here’s an effective and inexpensive natural solution for whitening toothpaste: Mix equal parts peppermint oil, coconut oil, spearmint essential oil, baking soda, and cinnamon bark oil. Brush for 2-3 minutes before rinsing your mouth with water. Repeat twice daily.
