FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: My DIY Beauty Recipes and Hacks in the Kitchen
Whew, now that's what I call a stormy Friday! I could be on house arrest the whole day because our area gets flooded ever so easily; I pray that the rain will subside later so I can proceed with my end of the week errands for work. I also hope you're all safe and dry, wherever you are!
Our FMF for today is from Jennifer:
Hi Ms. M!
Since I'm a full time mom, most of the time I'm in the kitchen, cooking. I'm just wondering if you can share with us some beauty hacks that we can find in our own kitchen?
Lovely question! I haven't had the time to experiment in my kitchen and come up with new beauty discoveries due to work - I actually miss it and I do hope to get the time soon (Hey! Maybe this storm is a blessing!).
Going back to your question, I've blogged about my personal beauty hacks and DIY recipes before and I'm just compiling it here; for the recipes, these are personal, but I don't claim ownership to these; who knows? Someone must have done these already, but I made and discovered these from scratch. Here they are!
- If your feet are tired, weary, and particularly dry and cracking, time for a hydrating foot scrub.
FROM YOUR KITCHEN: Muscovado sugar, Olive oil, and rolled oats
FROM YOUR DRESSER: Gel/Petroleum Jelly
- If you ran out of body scrub, you want to repurpose old body butters, or you want an energizing boost from your body scrub, try my Coffee Scrub recipe; it's non- sticky and won't attract ants!
FROM YOUR KITCHEN: Ground coffee
FROM YOUR DRESSER: Old body butter/emollient lotion
- If you have dry lips, you need a lip scrub and you need to exfoliate at least twice a week for better lipstick payoff. Check out my affordable, accessible DIY recipe.
FROM YOUR KITCHEN: Sugar and Honey
FROM YOUR DRESSER: Petroleum Jelly
- This is a fave and timeless beauty hack of mine; save yourself from purchasing expensive anti-bacterial brush shampoos and go for Joy Dishwashing Liquid instead; it has antibacterial properties and at the same time, breaks down hardened foundation effectively. Totally a brush saver!
That's all! Care to share your beauty hacks and DIY recipes?
