3 Quick & Cheap Beauty DIYs I Swear By
Hey my loves! So as you guys probably know, I’ve been obsessed with using natural ingredients for my DIY beauty hacks since I was a teenager. I love the fact that these are so quick and easy, super effective, and you don’t have to go out and buy anything. So, I wanted to share a few incredibly quick and easy recipes with ingredients you’re bound to already have in your kitchen cabinet.
Hydrating Honey Lip Mask
One of my favorite ways to keep my lips soft and supple is a honey mask. It’s super easy, just slather your lips in honey every night before you go to bed, and just leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes before removing it. Honey is a humectant and is super moisturizing, soothing and healing, plus the sweetness makes it the best mask! I always do this during Ramadan when my lips get dehydrated or when I travel to cool climates and my lips are chapped.
Gentle Resurfacing Yogurt and Turmeric Face Mask
I’m absolutely crazy about yogurt, and I often just use it just by itself! This yogurt face mask works wonders as an anti-aging, skin-softening face mask as the natural lactic acid dissolves dead skin, tightens pores, and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Combined with skin-nourishing honey, which is soothing and antibacterial, and turmeric that has amazing antioxidant properties, this mask will give you glowing, healthy-looking skin!
1 tablespoon of plain organic yogurt
1 teaspoon of raw organic honey
1 teaspoon of turmeric
Mix the ingredients in a bowl, then slather it on your face with your fingers (or a brush) and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Finally, rinse with lukewarm water and follow with your favorite serum and moisturizer. Be careful not to get the turmeric mask on your clothes as it stains easily.

Green Tea Eye Mask for Dark Circles
Green tea is packed with caffeine, which can help to shrink the blood vessels in your under-eye area, reducing inflammation in the veins and skin. The caffeine and EGCG in the tea will also restrict the blood capillaries, improving the appearance of dark circles and reducing swelling in puffy eyes. You can simply place green tea bags (brewed and then chilled in the fridge) under your eyes, but I find the method of mixing brewed green tea leaves with a little Vaseline (or honey) to be really effective and easy. Let either the tea bags or the mixture sit underneath your eyes for up to 20 minutes, then rinse the skin and apply your fave eye cream.
