DIY: All-natural facial serum

Hello everyone!

It's been a while since my last DIY beauty recipe, so today I want to share with you the recipe for my favourite all-natural facial serum.  


For those who don't know what facial serums are;  facial serums are lightweight moisturisers that contain a concentrated amount of nourishing ingredients.  So lets get started!  This is a very simple DIY, all you need are four ingredients.  Here's my recipe:

Ingredients:
  • 4 tbsp aloe vera gel - Soothes skin from irritation and inflammation.
  • 2 tbsp castor oil - Great skin moisturiser, delays the signs of ageing and reduces acne.
  • 2 tbsp vegetable glycerin - Keeps skin young and hydrated.
  • 2/4 drops of tea tree oil - Treats and prevents acne.

Method:

In a small glass pump bottle, combine all the ingredients.  Mix well until the ingredients are well amalgamated. 

How to use:

Cleanse your face as usual, then apply two or three pumps of serum in place of your moisturiser.  I use it every night instead of my night cream and I love how my skin looks and feels in the morning


This serum works really well with my sensitive, acne prone skin.  Because of its ingredients, it is also great for ageing and dry skin.  In other word, this all-natural serum can be beneficial to all skin types

Are facial serums part of your beauty routine?  Let me know in the comment section below and if you make this DIY recipe, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Spring cleaning

Hello everyone!
Today is the first day of SPRING and it's officially spring cleaning season!
Spring cleaning is the practice of thoroughly cleaning a house in the springtime.  However, you don’t have to stop with cleaning your house; your skin care regimen needs some spring cleaning too.


1.  Spring cleaning is a great opportunity to clean out old beauty products.  Old products can harbour bacteria and lose their effectiveness.
Check the dates on your products and toss the following:
  • Anything past the expiration date
  • Products that have changed consistency, colour, or smell
  • Mascara tubes older than three months
  • Dry products
  • Old make-up brushes and sponges
  • Anything with an SPF older than one year 
2.  Spring is a good time for deep exfoliation.  Here are three DIY exfoliation recipes that will leave your skin ready for dresses and sandals:
3.  Adjust your skin care routine to reflect the season.
  • Higher temperatures result in oilier skin.  It’s important to use a lighter moisturiser during spring and summer.
  • Use a lighter foundation and lighter, brighter make-up colours.
  • Sunscreen is important all year, but it is essential in the spring and summer. 
I hope you find this helpful.  If you have more beauty tips for transitioning from winter to spring, leave them in the comment section.  

Happy first day of spring!
