DIY Face Scrub

Over the past few weeks I’ve been using this face-scrub to wash my face once or twice a week and let me just say that, I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on my skin complexion. I’ve also been noticing how my makeup applies more smoothly and looks way more natural and it also has an even texture and finish.

I have read a lot and lots of home-made recipes over the past years, and one day I was home getting a “at-home-spa-day” and wondered around the kitchen and found the most basic and right on hand ingredients, so without more further ado, let’s jump into the ingredients and it’s benefits!

What you’ll need:

  • Olive oil
  • Sugar
  • Face Soap
  • Mixing bowl

Olive Oil: Rich in vitamins, minerals and natural fatty acids. It’s also convenient for a sensitive skin. Is also a powerful ingredient of anti-aging skin care products; rich in antioxidants, it prevents skin aging, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, it also nourishes, rejuvenates and protects the skin, rich in vitamin E and A, olive oil helps prolong youth, hydrates the skin, maintains its elasticity and softness. Also, olive oil helps skin cells to regenerate.

Granulated Sugar: Sugar’s small particles make an excellent topical exfoliant, and are used in a number of body scrubs to exfoliate dead surface skin cells and reveal the glowing, healthy-looking skin underneath; sugar is also a natural humectant; sugar helps encouraging the cell turnover and generating fresher, younger-looking skin.

Unscented Soap:  Prevents irritation ans allergies, it also help to cleanse and remove impurities from the skin. PicMonkey Collage

1. Gather all of the ingredients, an empty bowl, and place a towel underneath of them to create a designated area for you to make the DIY mess-free.

2. Pour some liquid soap into the bowl, about two quarter sizes.

3. Pour the sugar into the bowl until it covers the soap.

4.Pour some olive oil, until you cover the sugar don’t make it over flow, remember it has to have a thick consistency .

5. Mix your little concoction of healthy ingredients

6. Stop when you reach this kind of consistency; Make sure to not over mix, otherwise you’ll start dissolving the sugar and it will defeat it’s purpose as an exfoliant.PicMonkey Collage2

Once you’ve created the perfect consistency, damp your face with warm water and let the scrubbing begin. I usually stop until the sugar it’s dissolved witch really doesn’t take more than 5 minutes tops.

Rinse with warm water and proceed to wash your face with a regular gentle cleanser to get rid of the sugar residue on your face and after rinse with cold water to close up your pores and avoid any creation of dark circles.

I’ll leave you guys here pictures of the application process  and after result! :). Don’t forget to let me know if you tried it and what are your thoughts on this DIY. Also, let me know if you like this kind of blog and tell us what would you like to see next!. Until next time..

DIY Hair Masks for Dry & Damaged Hair

Damaged hair!?? We’ve all been there… Have you been felling that your hair is a little rough, and at the ends is looking all brittle?!? Maybe you’ve been using a lot of heat on your hair, or you’ve been getting your hair colored very often?.. but anyhow, at the end of the day your hair feels damaged and dry, after all of the things you put your hair through.

 To repair all of the damage, and have an amazing hair that looks and feels good to the touch, here are 2 DIY masks that you can try at home, and improve your hair health. These are our Holy Grail Hair Mash, and you’ll love them as much as we do.

Let’s Start..

Coconut Oil Hair Mask

 Coconut oil, not only smells wonderful and delicious, but is also a lightweight moisturizer for your hair, so it leaves you hair not only smelling amazing, but feeling great and does not weight the hair down, this are the main reasons why we love, Coconut Oil.<3

 What You’ll Need: 

  • 1 Cup of Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Cup of Olive Oil

What to do with the ingredients!? (AKA Directions)

  1. Combine the Olive Oil and the Coconut Oil in a bowl and mix it well
  2. Apply the mixture to your hair, concentrating at the ends of the hair
  3. Create a Top Knot, and cover it with a shower cap.. Here comes the tricky part when you wear a hair mask you usually leave it for about 20 to 30 min, but our little tip and twist is that you need to leave the mask for the whole entire night and rinse it out at morning, so you can achieve the best results you can
  4. Rinse it out in the shower.
  5. Shampoo the roots of the hair and then condition as usual, or you could wash your hair before doing the mask, and just rinse out and skip shampoo for more moisture. 


Milk And Honey Mask

This is a really simple and easy mask but yet really powerful with it’s moisturizer properties, because by using Milk, we expect to have a hair that it’s waaaay more softer to the touch and The Honey has a lot of moisturizing properties, this is why it’s very important in a homemade hair mask, especially if you have dry dull hair. The function is that it has restorative properties that adds moisture to lifeless dry hair, making it glowing and really lustrous.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 Glass of Milk
  • 2 Tbsp of Honey (Not Agave or anything like it)

What To Do?:

  1. Mix the ingredients in a big glass, until they are really well blended. (put them on a blender if it’s necessary)
  2. Massage it into your hair from root to tip and leave it on for 10 to 15 min
  3. Rinse with warm water and shampoo as usual
  4. Make sure to not get any bees on your hair (Juuuuuuuust kidding, Or maybe not (= !  )
