Last Friday I shared some amazing kitchen cupboard beauty with you all that hopefully had you reaching for the fridge rather than the spendy John Lewis counters. Who knew that a good old avocado could be just as good on your skin as it is in your tummy and a far more environmentally friendly alternative too!
Following on from the basics I’ve got a few lovely recipes for you to use (courtesy of my mum!). These are all still really simple so give them a try.
Sea Salt Foot Soak
This is an absolutely gorgeous foot soak to revive tired tootsies and make them super soft.
1 cup epsom salt
1 cup sea salt
1 cup baking soda
15-20 drops peppermint essential oil
This scrub is so gentle on your skin but leaves it feeling all glowy.
1 tspn ground almonds
1 tspn fine oats
1 tspn olive oil/avocado oil
1 pinch salt
1/2 tspn cider vinegar
Banana Face Mask
Banana is anti bacterial which makes it great for acne and blemishes.
1 tspn milk
Pinch of nutmeg
1 tspn oatmeal powder (optional)
Fine Hair Mask
This is ideal for reviving fine, limp hair and adding volume to your do.
1/2 cup flat beer
1 tsp sunflower oil
Honey & Coconut Hair Repair
If you’ve been overdoing the styling or getting the blow dryer out a bit too often then this one’s for you.
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp honey
