I used to use an oatmeal mask but I hardly have time anymore these days. I put a small amount of oatmeal in my hand, wet it and scrunched until it became a sort of paste and then spread it on my face. When it was dry I wiped off the solid bits with a towel so it didn’t clog the drain and then washed my face with some basil water (which acted as a toner. You could also use green tea, but use it sparingly- you can become immune to it). The oatmeal mask was really simple, but it made my face really soft and glowy, though sometimes the oatmeal got stuck in my hair.

Oatmeal is amazing for your skin, as BleakandWet mentioned above.

I tried an amazing hair mask last week that is awesome for your hair! All you need is one avocado, mashed, a tablespoon of honey, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons yogurt (or mayo but yogurt smells a lot better and if you buy the greek yogurt it has a lot of protien which is great for your hair) and one egg yolk. Mix together until smooth and then slop on your hair (better if your hair is wet so it absorbs the nutirents better but I did mine dry) and leave on for as long as you like, massaging your scalp every so often. I just covered my head with a plastic bag and then after a couple hours I rinsed it out and shampooed my hair with a gentle shampoo and conditioner. :)

I use honey and sugar to exfoliate my skin. Honey is very moisturizing and also helps to soften your lips

this isn’t a beauty recipe, but mixing equal (small) parts unflavored gelatin powder + milk (weird, right?) and microwaving it for like 10 seconds makes a decent DIY pore strip.

I always use just plain honey, does miracles for my skin.
Others I’ve tried are egg whites, they are really good too, just not for my type of skin cause mine is very dry..

I always make my own bath salts and body scrubs. Here is one recipe Link:[Bath Salts]

For a good body scrub, use fine table salt and enough oil to make a paste.

What kind of skin do you have? I might have more advice if I know what kind of problem you are trying to fix.

olive oil is amazing, it makes your skin so soft…for a face scrub, mix olive oil + sugar , or honey + sugar and rub it on your skin. :)
