DIY skincare recipe for coffee scrubs
There is a multitude of "base ingredients" that are recommended for DIY scrubs. From sugar, salt, oats, grains, and coffee, each of them carries its own benefits.
Every coffee enthusiast will be happy to know that fresh ground coffee contains antioxidants, and so do used grounds as well. Opt for your preferred coffee grounds and mix them with coconut oil. Consider it as your homemade antioxidant coffee body scrub that exfoliates the skin while letting the coconut oil work its moisturizing magic.
Additionally, you can add vanilla and cinnamon to get a super pleasant warming effect and reap the benefits of the amazing scent they offer. After you've prepared the mix, pour it into a jar and use it 1-2 times per week depending on your skin type.
Crushed avocado DIY face mask for soothing
Avocado delivers antioxidants to protect your complexion against environmental damage while restoring our much-needed facial moisture. Avocados are jam-packed with healthy fatty acids and vitamins, which makes them the perfect addition to our DIY skincare recipes.
Crush the avocado until you no longer see any lumps. Then, go ahead and mix it with 1 teaspoon of yogurt. The lactic acid in yogurt helps to kills bacteria that can sometimes cause acne breakouts as well. Add a few drops of olive oil and coconut oil (or shea butter) to the mix and apply it on your face. This recipe is perfect for the cold-weather season when our skin desperately needs hydration.
Smoothing honey & coconut lip scrub
If there's one thing that greatly suffers during fall and winter is our lips. Luckily, there is a quick DIY skincare recipe that can work miracles on dry, chapped lips.
We've already mentioned the skin-soothing benefits of coconut oil. You can think of raw honey as its ally. It helps balance the bacteria, smooths, moisturizes, and reduces the pain that is caused due to cracked skin.
Mix 1 teaspoon coconut oil, 1 teaspoon raw honey, 2 tablespoons raw sugar, and a few drops of lemon juice in a small bowl. Scoop the mixture with a new toothbrush and start applying it to your lips in a circular motion.
DIY skincare recipe with Aloe for fall
We all know by now that Aloe is a skin-saving ingredient for sunburns. However, it also carries a slew of anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and moisturizing properties. Aloe face masks offer that soft, ultra-hydrated feeling we all covet so much along with a healthy glow. These masks can calm irritated skin and plump our complexion even during the cold-weather season.
Mix 1/2 tablespoon of almond milk with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar until the sugar dissolves. Add 4 tablespoons of aloe vera juice or gel. Then, gently apply the mixture to your face and relax.
Remember, easy DIY skincare recipes for fall that nourish, hydrate, and soothe the skin, also work as a base for applying your trusted cruelty free beauty products evenly.
When it comes to effortless makeup application, weekly exfoliation and daily moisturization is the key to having a smooth “canvas” that every formula can adhere to. Browse our virtual shelves at Calizade Beauty to find the best cruelty-free, inclusive beauty formulas for all your future looks.
