Quick and Easy Homemade Beauty Products

Aloe Vera Lip Gloss Recipe

1 tsp. Aloe Vera gel

1/2 tsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. petroleum jelly
Directions

Combine the ingredients in a small glass bowl until well mixed. Heat for about 2 minutes in the microwave. Stir and pour into a small container. Let cool completely before use.

Relaxing Facial Recipe

1 beaten egg (unclogs pores)

1 carrot (cooked and mashed)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 avocado (peeled and mashed)
3 tbsp honey
Directions

Combine the egg, mashed carrot, cream, avocado and honey in a bowl. Make sure the carrots are cooled down before you add them, or they will start to cook the egg. Stir everything together with a fork until they are well combined. Of course you could also throw everything in the blender and combine it that way.

Spread the mixture all over your face, being careful not to get it in your eyes or mouth. Leave it on for about 10 minutes, then rinse the mask off with plenty of warm water.

Hair Mask

  • 1/2 cup of ripe avocado
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 banana (I prefer it not to be too ripe)
  • 1 egg yolk

Directions:

Massage it in to your hair and especially your scalp. Cover it with a shower cap. You can also use a gallon size baggie in a pinch. Wait 45 minutes to an hour then rinse it off thoroughly and shampoo as usual.

 

Acne Clearing Mask

Mash together 1/4 cup fresh strawberries with 1/4 cup sour cream or yogurt, spread on clean skin, let sit for 15 minutes, and then rinse well. Strawberries are a natural source of salicylic acid (the same stuff found in acne products).
