DIY: beach beauty products

Healthy and homemade

3 natural tips you will love

Who doesn’t love a quiet beach escape? We do, but we also know that sometimes the sun and the sand can be a little unfriendly to our hair and skin, making us wear a lot of moisturizers and after-sun lotions to stay fresh. These three natural homemade beauty recipes are perfect for these occasions: you can prepare them at home using ingredients you already have in the kitchen.

-1 tsp of lemon juice

-1 tsp of olive oil

To use: 

All you have to do is blend all ingredients together until a smooth paste is formed. Use the scrub to massage in circles around your heels and toes, then rinse with water. Sugar scrubs are one of our favorite beauty recipes: we love how they smell, and how moisturizing they are to our skin. Tip: as the food scrub contains lemmon, it’s better to be applied during the night.
