Beauty Recipes...

Hiya. Here are a few beauty recipes I've tried and some I found and and am really interested in trying out. You can create all of them with everyday household products.

Dry Skin Face Mask
Apply a thin layer of plain yoghurt on your face and leave for around 15-30 minutes then remove with warm water and a clean face cloth, this is supposed to get rid of any dry or flaky skin.
Hair Softener + Frizz Tamer
A girl I know from school tried this and her hair was super soft you just put a small amount of olive oil on your hair then rinse thoroughly for a silky smooth finish.
Spot Treatment
Put a small amount of toothpaste on a spot, this will reduce redness making the spot easier to cover up.
Dry Shampoo
Tap talc powder into your roots of your hair and it will give your hair a fresher and cleaner look when you don't have time to wash your hair however I would only recommend this to blondes because of the fact that it can leave noticeable patchy marks which are not obvious on lighter hair.
Acne Treatment Mask
Simply whisk an egg and put it on your face then leave for about 5-10 minutes to set, this will dry out any pimples.
Eye Primer
Put together equal amounts of your everyday liquid foundation and moisturiser mix well so they both combine. It will brighten any eye shadow you are using and the colour of the primer will blend well with your other make-up.
Hair Build Up Remover
When washing your hair mix baking soda with your shampoo this simply removes any build up.
Hair Lightener
Brew chamomile tea as usual and pour it into a spray bottle then spray all over your hair and go out into the sun this will supposedly slightly lighten your hair without damaging it.

If you've tried or going try any of these let me know the results also if you have any other beauty DIY tips leave them in the comments.
