Winter can be rough on our moods (especially when the snow just won’t stop falling!) but it can also be tough on our skin and hair. If your body needs a little TLC, save some money and try out some of these DIY beauty recipes:
The biting cold in winter can do a number on your lips. Give your chapped lips a treat with a little lip scrub. You’ll need agave nectar (or honey), coconut oil and brown sugar.
To take care of dry feet, add your favorite olive oil or coconut oil to a cup of granulated sugar. Then add a few drops of peppermint essential oil to the mixture and you’re good to go.
This face mask will simultaneously moisturize your skin, fight wrinkles, combat acne, and exfoliate. Just grab a ripe avocado, a banana, some olive oil and a little orange or lemon juice to get started.
All you need to make this is water, aloe vera and your favorite essential oil. The leave-in conditioner will moisturize as well as tame and defrizz your hair.
For tired feet, mix together 1 cup sea salt, 1 cup Epsom salt, 1 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup dried lavender. Pour this mixture in a tub with enough bearable hot water to submerge your feet into. Then relax and let your feet soak for about 20 minutes.
