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.

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
