My Favorite DIY Skin Care Ideas To Try At Home

Yogurt & Honey Face Pack

What You’ll Need:

  • Yogurt
  • Honey

How To:

For a quick and effective DIY face pack, combine yogurt and honey to create a nourishing paste. It is recommended to use high-quality yogurt, such as raw, organic, plain, and highly cultured yogurt, as it contains enzymes and lactic acid that offer benefits beyond mere hydration. 

However, if sourcing such yogurt proves difficult, you can still find organic, plain, cultured yogurt at most health food stores. This simple yet powerful pack will leave your skin feeling refreshed and revitalized.

Aloe Vera Gel, Honey & Chia Powder Face Pack

What You’ll Need:

  • Aloe Vera Gel
  • Honey
  • Chia Powder

How To:

Another fantastic combination for a DIY face pack includes aloe vera gel, honey, and chia powder, with the optional addition of rose essential oil. Unlike many other essential oils, rose essential oil is non-astringent and readily available. To maintain moisture, it is recommended to occasionally mist this particular pack with plain spring water or pure rose water while leaving it on your skin for 20 to 60 minutes. 

By following this regimen, you can effectively hydrate, soothe, and rejuvenate your skin. It’s important not to mist the first pack, as doing so can compromise the active enzymes and diminish the exfoliating properties provided by lactic acid.

Chocolate Lava Cake Body Scrub

What You’ll Need:

  • Salt and/or Sugar
  • Cacao Powder
  • Honey
  • Coconut Oil

How To:

Allow me to introduce my all-time favorite body scrub: the Chocolate Lava Cake Body Scrub. When prepared correctly, it provides a sensation reminiscent of being inside a decadent dessert. For optimal results, apply the scrub to warm, steamed skin after your shower or bath, avoiding the face due to its abrasive nature. Take a deep breath and relish the delightful aroma that resembles a chocolate treat.

The recipe I’m sharing utilizes organic, food-grade ingredients that are commonly found in our kitchens. In contrast, most commercially-made scrubs only include a few organic ingredients as a marketing ploy. What sets this body scrub apart is the ability to customize its thickness according to your preferences. Whether you prefer a thick or light consistency, this scrub can be easily tailored to your liking. The best part? It’s nearly impossible to mess up—just start combining salt and/or sugar, cacao powder, honey, and coconut oil and mix into a paste. It should last for up to a week in the refrigerator.
