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.

Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family

Both of my brothers have autism. I am 12 and a girl. I also have a 3 y/o sister. It always seems like my parents pay more attention to them then me. I don't want to tell them about it because they will think I'm being selfish. But i can't do ANYTHING fun. My little brother is allergic to half the ingredients in most candies, so I can never go trick-or-treating. And I have not had eggs since I was 3. I always have to do everything by myself. How do I deal with this?
