My favorite Beauty D.I.Y.s ... the recap.

If you have been a long time reader you know how much I live for beauty D.I.Y.S.

The more I can understand what I am putting on my body and skin the better. I have literally been a guinea pig for this blog. My parents always laugh and say my word you seriously will try anything (as I a walk around with turmeric on my face and brightly yellow stained turmeric teeth). As I have said before i LIVE for a good natural beauty alternative and when it actually delivers on some good results I rejoice like I have won the lotto. 

There has been many and I mean many disappointments but omg the good one's have really changed the beauty game for me.

One thing I always get compliments about is my skin but as we all know it takes a generous amount of effort to get the right regime going. Which is why I love a beauty d.i.y. it can be custom made to your skin, hair and body needs. My current skincare regime involves face dry brushing, a d.i.y. skin toner, grape seed oil,a anti marks drugstore cream and the occasional face mask its simple and works for me. As you can tell its pretty much 80% natural for me right now. I am currently craving something more powerful for my ever increasing wrinkles but for now that's what I have found to work. 

Without seriously going on a wrinkle infused ramble here are some of my favorite beauty d.i.y.s.

Vitamin C serum:
Whenever I start seeing my freckles ( yes people I have freckles) darkening or my skin just looking super uneven I pull out the big guns and this right here is the big gun. Its super easy to make and works like a charm on marks . Get the recipe here.

Dry hair mask:
This mask is all natural and delivers, the only thing I will add in is lavender essential oils.

Grape seed oil: 
You guys have heard me raving about grape seed oil all 2017. I am obsessed, its great for hair growth, anti aging and so much more.

Activated charcoal:
This to date is one of my go to masks if I have been out and about, it totally detoxes the skin.

Dry brushing:
This actually might not be a beauty d.i.y. but in my mind I think it is, dry brushing is amazing for cell renewal and not to mention cellulite treatment. Learn more about dry brushing and exfoliation here.

My favorite blemish buster ever:
I have tried many blemish busters and a week after using it the pimple is still prominent. Lemon however dries it up like a charm. Beware  of the sting though!

Now I have a beauty d.i.y. request of you,
 do you have a beauty d.i.y. which is great for wrinkles?

  16. I always love trying beauty DIY's. But most of the time, they just make my skin red and itchy. The only ones I found to work for me is using baking soda as an initial rinse to control dandruff, cornstarch as dry shampoo to absorb oil, apple cider vinegar to control the itchiness of my scalp and control frizz, and honey and sugar body scrub. The face masks I have tried, most of them make my face itchy and red. :( But I am interested in the activated charcoal mask. I might give it a try! Thanks for sharing! :)
