It is amazing how this product can be used for beauty products.
Vaseline's great, as is Aquaphor.

Let's revive this thread and get some DIY/at-home beauty recipes going! I made a wonderful peppermint lip scrub for the holidays...

^ I'll have to get reacquainted with Vaseline it seems! I never knew it was so versatile. Also Erin do you have the recipe for your peppermint lip scrub? Sounds lovely!

I made a delightful body scrub on the weekend that left my skin incredibly soft and smelling divine. It makes quite a lot of scrub that you can leave in a jar in the fridge, then scoop out your desired amount with a dry wooden spoon in the shower so you don't get any water and germs in the mixture. Apparently it lasts for a few weeks, you just need to stir it well before each use as the mixture separates quite easily. It's super easy to make:

1 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of coconut oil (I used the organic extra virgin kind)
2 tablespoons of honey (organic is preferable, but any kind will do)

Enjoy!

Ah, I was just coming to revive this thread and mention the sugar + honey combo.. I'm obsessed, don't know how I never tried this before.. and even though it isn't my favorite smell, I like how the smell of sugar stays for a while. I love doing this after coming from a 6 km run, then finish off with a cold shower. All three procedures keep me the rest of the day slapping my cheeks .. baby levels of soft.

Going to add coconut oil as soon as I can for the full summer 'experience'.

You guys should check this chick out. Her videos are fantastic and informative.

I haven't tried any of her DIYs, but I know my mom has done some of them (she learned about them through some natural remedy book instead of youtube) and has fantastic skin, imo.

Coconut Oil, all day every day. I'm slightly obsessed with being moisturized 100% of the time and I used to use baby oil but if it wasn't in the winter i felt like it would just sit on my skin. Now that it's warmer I picked up a jar of coconut oil from whole foods and i've been using it right after the shower on my body while my skin is still wet and it soaks in right away and doesn't leave a greasy feeling or a smell at all. I highly recommend it. I might use it as a hair mask soon because i've heard some people do that or use it on their face but I'm too scared to use it on my face because I'm very prone to breakouts so I try to tread lightly with any questionable skin products.

I hope this thread doesnt exist, sometimes onwe doesnt need to buy a $300 beauty cream, nature provides more than enough options.

Here is one I tried which has amazing results it leaves your skin glowing

Mix youghurt, honey and oats then apply to your face as a mask for 15mins and wash it off then do ur usual routine.

The other one I knw of a coffee scrub

  1. Coffee
  2. Extra virgin olive oil
  3. a small drop Peppermint essential oil (optional) or lemon
mix them then apply and scrub and rinse

Ooooh I'd be interested in what other people use, I love mixing natural ingredients and making masks, scrubs and so on.

I sometimes get some natural gel from an Aloe Vera plant and just splatter it on my face until the goo is dry then wipe it off.

I do the oil cleansing method every night from crunchy Betty http://www.crunchybetty.com/nitty-gr...eansing-method

It's a mixture of half castor oil and half sweet almond oil. You can literally feel the blocked pores fall out. It makes your skin look great.

I also do the classic hot water with lemon in the morning to make my skin clear

Babushka's Beauty Secrets by Raisa Ruder, Susan Campos and Mona Shafer Edwards is such a gorgeous and amazing book. If you are interested in DIY recipes you have to buy it. I don't think you're gonna regret it.

This is my today's recipe:
Grate raw potato, squeeze the juice and apply the juice under your eyes for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can also place thin slices of potato on your eyes (with them closed) every night before you retire. This is one of the most popular and time-tested home remedies for dark circles.
