Liquid Gold Mask With Honey + Turmeric

This mask is perfect for imperfect skin. I couldn’t help naming this mask Liquid Gold because it looks just like that when you blend honey and turmeric together. It’s quite amazing and I was looking forward to photographing it so you can see it for yourself. Besides this mask looking pretty, it works pretty good for your face reducing blemishes and acne. Even though turmeric can stain and washes off

Coconut Oil Pulling & Why You Should Do It

What is coconut oil pulling?

This detoxifying method is not new, like most things that become a trend in the U.S., but oil pulling has been used traditionally for centuries by many cultures in different regions of the

Baking Soda + Coconut Oil Scrub

Baking soda is one of those simple inexpensive multitasking items in your kitchen where you don’t expect it to do as many things as it does. It can help you look and feel your best from head to toe, from teeth whitening to treating body odor. However, I’m going to focus on using this in a Baking Soda + Coconut Oil Scrub.

Three-Ingredient Coffee Soap Bar

Coffee lovers can partake in a variety of methods to utilize their favorite coffee into beverages, food, beauty regimens, and also body coffee soaps. Coffee on the skin does wonders as it’s loaded with antioxidants and it’s known to tighten the skin as an anti-cellulite. Therefore, making a three-ingredient coffee soap bar is a brilliant idea for skin-tightening properties.

The Perfect Whipped Shea Body Butter

Being able to make my own body butter has been a wonderful thing for me. It’s convenient, only includes non-toxic ingredients, and feels luscious on my skin. I’ve made whipped shea body butter a couple times before but it never came out quite so, whipped. The texture was more like a balm (which is not bad either) and it ended up grainy so it felt like little rocks were in it,

Best Morning Lemon Sugar Scrub

Have you tried this? I have, and now I’m obsessed (along with the red clay mask). Lemon sugar scrub is so dope for the mornings. For anytime really, but to start off fresh in the A.M. is best. During my DIY beauty experience, I’ve surprisingly have been satisfied with the results and I’m always happy to share the recipes I like the most. So let’s get to these lemons.

Acne Fighting Cocoa Coffee Mask

First, let me make it known that I was blown away by the results of this chocolate coffee face mask. Not only is it powerful for fighting away acne, but by far has made my face feel the smoothest immediately after most masks I’ve tried. Both coffee and cocoa are excellent blood circulators so my face felt revitalized and tingly after scrubbing and rinsing it off. Everything in this mask

Drying Ingredients To Avoid In Lip Balms [Infographic]

Do you find yourself re-applying lip balm several times throughout the day only to find them dry again? For years, I used to proudly claim my addiction to lip balm as if it was something cute to confess. What was not cute were my lips quickly drying up and furthermore, appearing dark spots! When my parts of my lips started turning black, that’s when I knew I needed to research

Detoxifying Red Clay Mask

New mask alert! I love clay masks because it is soothing to the skin and it reminds me of spa quality facials. Red clay masks are not only detoxifying, but will have your face feeling soft and smooth. Oil is pulled out of clogged pores and dead skin is removed. What more do you need? Well I’ll break it to you, there is more! Red clay is excellent for sensitive
