4 DIY beauty tips you should try at home!

As you already know I love beauty and everything about it! I love trying new products and trends, but this time I want to try some DIY beauty products! I’ll share with you 4 of my favorite beauty products that I made at home! 

Do you know the power of Turmeric? DIY face mask and teeth whitener! 

DIY turmeric beauty treatments

Turmeric is actually a quite powerful spice or plant. It has been proven to have many health benefits, such as preventing heart disease, Alzheimer’s and even cancer. So many people are taking turmeric capsules or drinking turmeric tea.

However, it also has some benefits when used for beauty treatments, so I have made a few DIY products with little spice! It’s all-natural, I like that! If you want a few more natural beauty tips you can find some here

The first thing you can try is to make a DIY natural teeth whitener! Who doesn’t want bright white teeth? Just remember, that if you already have white teeth, it might not help as much! However, I definitely think it’s worth a try!

All you need is 1tbs. of turmeric powder, 2 tbsp. of coconut oil, and then a little peppermint oil (which you can leave out, it’s more for the taste and aroma). Mix it together and brush your teeth with it daily. Let it sit for about 3-5 minutes and then rinse! You should do it a minimum a week for results, but keep on going for as long as needed! 

You can also use turmeric in a DIY face mask! That was new to me! However, the turmeric should help make your skin brighter and radiant and good for acne, pigmentation and bags under the eyes! So I’ve added a new face mask to my favorites!

Mix 2 tbsp. turmeric powder, 1 tbsp. rice flour, 2 tbsp. yogurt and ½ tbsp. honey to a paste. Apply a thin layer to your face and neck and let sit for 20 minutes and wash off. Do it 2-3 times a week if you really have problems with your skin! 

Beauty treatments for your lips – try a scrub and a mask!

I have actually never heard about any beauty treatments for the lips! They are kinda forgotten in most beauty routines! The only thing I do once in a while is to scrub my lips with my toothbrush! However, take a look and see how easy it is to make a DIY lip scrub! 

Mix 1 tbsp. honey, 1 tbsp. coconut oil or 1 tsp. brown sugar and then apply to your lips in a circular motion. Keep on going for around 1-2 mins. Don’t worry if it gets into your mouth. It’s completely edible and actually tastes quite nice! Wipe it off with a tissue and voila! Fine lips for you!

This little mixture can last in the fridge for up to 2 weeks! It’s good to use before a matte lipstick – really keeps the color in place! I have tried it before using my all-time favorite Superstay Matte Ink from Maybelline, and I do see a difference!

The last thing I want to mention this time is a DIY lip mask! It’s super easy to make and only needs 2 ingredients! Crushed pineapple and honey! Crush some pineapple and soak a cotton pad in it. Remember to use one that can cover your lips! Spread honey on your lips and then apply the pineapple mask to cover your lips. Leave it for 3-5 minutes and you will have defined and soft lips!
