An All Natural Beauty Day At Home

So I’m one of those people who are really big into the whole ‘home remedy’ thing, especially when it comes to my beauty regiment. As I sit here with honey on my face and mayo on my hair, I figured now would be a good time to share some of these things with you. Here is what I do on my ‘all natural beauty days,’ and by the way, you can use all of these things on your little girls to. My daughter and I have been doing these treatments together since she was two, and she just loves them!

Step One: Your Hair

To make your hair soft, shiny, and manageable, just take some of the mayo in your fridge. Use 1/4 cup for really short hair, 1/2 cup for average hair, and 3/4 of a cup for long hair. Dampen your hair, and add the mayo. Massage it into your scalp and hair, wrap a towel  around your head or place on a shower cap, and leave it there for at least half an hour. I usually shoot for a full hour so that I know all of the nutrients in the mayo have absorbed into my hair properly. You can leave it on as long as you like though, so you don’t have to worry if you get busy and can’t get it out for two hours. It won’t hurt your hair!

Step Two: Your Face

There are two things you can do. One, is buy an all natural clay or mud mask. Two is use honey. I use honey because I just so happen to suffer from acne, and honey is awesome at getting rid of breakouts because it contains natural anti-bacterial properties. A clay or mud mask will make your face very soft. Just apply either one to your face and leave it. They will firm up on your face, which you will certainly feel, and then you can use an exfoliating sponge or a warm wash cloth to remove them from your face. The exfoliating sponge is great if you have dried out skin, and the warm wash cloth is great for oily skin types.

Step Three: Your Eyes

If you have bags under your eyes or blood shot eyes, then just place raw, cold cucumber slices over your eyes. Lay back and relax to some music or heck, even shoot for some meditation time. Whatever you decide to do, just make sure you leave the cucumber slices on for at least five to ten minutes, and you will immediately notice your eyes are refreshed.

Step Four: Your Lips

To exfoliate your lips and make  them look softer and fuller, just wet your finger and dip it into some sugar, or use a tooth brush dipped in sugar, and rub it in circular motions on your lips. This will get rid of any dead skin. Seal in moisture with some good  old fashioned chap stick, and you are ready to go!

There you go, folks, those are the super easy steps to an all natural beauty day at home. Forget about the way it makes you look- a day like this once a week (or every other week, as I end up doing because I’m so busy) is fantastic. You can even do  a lot of work at the same time or just relax. Whatever the case, you’ll feel awesome, refreshed, and beautiful. Have fun 🙂
