Expert-Approved DIY Beauty Treatments to Get You Through This Summer

Right now, we’re all stuck at home in quarantine (unless you are an essential worker - in which case, thank you for being you!). But if you aren’t leaving the house, why not capitalize on this abundance of free time by experimenting with a round of DIY beauty treatments? With the simple, natural ingredients you probably already have in your home, there are many concoctions waiting to be stirred up - especially if you’ve got items that need to be used up! Most of these tutorials use basic household staples, while others are slightly more niche. Here is a list of expert-approved DIY beauty treatments that will turn your home into a luxury spa, and have you leaving quarantine with extra glowy skin.

Brightening Turmeric Face Mask

Here’s What You Need:

1 teaspoon turmeric powder

1 1/2 tablespoon of organic honey

1 tablespoon milk or yogurt 

Mix these ingredients together in a small bowl and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Wash off with warm water to reveal glowing skin! Watch out to make sure you don’t get turmeric on your clothing - the brightly colored yellow spice may stain. This formula helps make your skin brighter and more radiant, fights acne, hyperpigmentation and dark circles. Talk about a win-win situation!

Exfoliating Sugar Lip Scrub

Here’s What You Need:

1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil

Mix ingredients together in a small bowl and scoop out into the container of your choice. Simple but effective, this exfoliating lip scrub will have your lips feeling baby soft. Make sure your lips are clean of makeup before you start, and gently exfoliate lips with the scrub using circular motions. Don’t forget to wear a lip balm afterwards to lock in extra moisture to your lips!

Hydrating Honey Avocado Mask

Here’s What You Need:

1 ripe avocado

2 tablespoons honey

Mash avocado in a bowl and add honey. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse off with cool water - excess mask can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-5 days. If you’re looking for a hydrating and anti-aging treatment for your dehydrated summer skin, this is for you! Honey helps keep in hydration while its antibacterial properties and antioxidants make it an essential ingredient for those with drier skin. When combined with avocado, it maximizes moisture and slows down skin aging. Who doesn’t love the sound of that?

Calming Oatmeal Face Mask

Here’s What You Need:

3 teaspoons oats

1 teaspoon warm milk of your choice

1 teaspoon rose water

1 teaspoon plain yogurt 

Blend the oats in a blender with the slightly warmed milk and stir until the mixture forms a thick paste. Mix in the rose water and yogurt, and leave on the skin for 15 to 30 minutes. Rinse well with lukewarm water. This oatmeal face mask is perfect for calming down your skin after it’s been in the sun all day - It’s also a common ingredient in products that soothe dry skin, including conditions such as sunburns, insect bites, and even eczema.
