Best DIY Skincare Recipes

All the chemicals, artificial colors, and toxic ingredients found in most beauty brands on the market will do more harm than good on the long run, so when it comes to skin and hair care, I’ve always preferred organic products with 100% natural ingredients that are both safe and effective.

However, I’ve noticed that the more natural ingredients a product has, the more expensive it is, and honestly, I’m not for spending big bucks on products I can easily make myself with two or three things found in the kitchen. That said, I’m sharing four DIY recipes for face, body, hair, and lips I swear by. They're all super easy to make and show instant results. And now that winter roughness is weeks away, it's the perfect time to treat our body right.

This mask restores and strengthens hair, and helps prevent breakage and split ends.

LIP SCRUB

This scrub is ideal for dry, patchy lips.

Ingredients:
