DIY Beauty Treatments

Apr 25, 2013

It's time to change up your beauty routine and go au naturale with DIY beauty treatments! No one wants to put yucky chemicals on their face and what could be more natural than making it yourself with ingredients from your kitchen? From an avocado hair mask to a scrumptious smelling brown sugar body scrub, mixing your way to a totally organic beauty routine is easier than you think!

Brown Sugar Body Scrub

Make a scrumptious smelling body scrub with just three ingredients! All you need is coconut oil, brown sugar and lemon. Warm up 1/2 cup of virgin coconut oil in the microwave. Add 1/2 cup of brown sugar and squeeze in the juice of half a lemon - then mix it all together. The coconut oil will moisturize your skin while the brown sugar exfoliates any dead skin cells. So easy!

Natural Face Mask

Moisturizing Oatmeal and Banana Mask - Mash 1/4 of a ripe banana with two tablespoons of instant oats, 1 teaspoon almond or soy milk and a pinch of ground cinnamon or nutmeg. Mash it all together to form a paste and apply onto your face. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse with water.

Shiny Hair Avocado Mask

If your hair is in need of a deep conditioning treatment, look no further than the ingredients in your kitchen pantry. Whisk 1 egg yolk, 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and 1 teaspoon of honey in a small bowl. Use a fork and mash in half of a ripe avocado. Apply to your hair and let soak for 15 minutes. Rinse it out, shampoo and then rinse again. Voila - shiny soft hair!

Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Conditioner

You don't need to buy expensive clarifying shampoo to restore shine to your hair. Simply apply apple cider vinegar to your hair after your shampoo! It clears away any build-up from hair products. To revive your hair, mix 1 part apple cider vinegar and 1 part water - put in an empty spray bottle and spritz your hair with it post-shampoo. Massage it into your scalp. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse with water. No need to apply conditioner- your hair will feel smooth and soft.

I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
