I love spending time in the kitchen to prepare my meals. But what I love more is to discover what DIY beauty recipe I can make from kitchen ingredients. It’s no surprise that there are a lot of these ingredients that are supposedly going to be thrown away, but why throw them when you can still use them for something else?
Exfoliate with Coffee
If someone in the household drinks coffee, then you’re in luck. Especially if they brew their own. Collect the used ground coffee and save them in a tightly closed jar with a little bit of water, not completely dried up. When you have enough, you can start making your body exfoliator.
Aside from the coffee grounds (1/2 cup) you would also need:
- Sugar (1/2 cup)
- Coconut Oil (1/4 cup)
- Ground Cinnamon (1 teaspoon)
Just mix them all together and voila! This DIY beauty recipe will surely get you to save money, instead of buying those expensive body scrubs. You can start exfoliating with your homemade coconut and coffee body scrub.
Get Calm with Yogurt
Yogurt is one of my favorite snacks. Not only is it full of proteins, but it also makes you less hungry and fight belly fat. Aside from all of these, yogurt can also do wonders to your face.
All you need to do is to mix full-fat plain or Greek yogurt with honey and lather it on your face and neck. Let it stay there for about 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water after. The overall effect is a calmer and moisturized skin. Make sure to buy enough yogurt for your DIY beauty recipe aka face mask and to still have some left to eat!
Clean it with Olive oil
Aside from being one of the healthiest ingredients on the planet, Olive oil can also be used as a make-up remover. All you need to do is to mix Olive oil and filtered water and you now have a hydrating makeup remover. How easy is that?
There are other lots of DIY beauty recipe that you can do. Watch this video as a former model explains what she does to get her unwashed but glossy and full of volume hair.
Have fun experimenting! These are just guidelines on what you can do and if you think some ingredients have way better effects, then substitute it. Just be sure to test its effects on your skin first before you apply it all over, you can never be too sure what you’re allergic to.
