I LOVE to travel … the problem with travel is, my skin ALWAYS breaks out! Flying, the change of climate, plane food and dehydration all contribute so after i’ve travelled i always like to give my skin some extra love and attention.

These easy DIY beauty treatments are natural, inexpensive and some even delicious!

Rub-a-dub-scrubs!

These DIY face & body scrubs smell delicious and leave your skin glowing, fresh, hydrated & silky smooth. I keep my scrubs in a mason jar in the shower and use them a few times a week to give my body a good exfoliation.

Magic Masks!

DIY face masks are relatively inexpensive and use ingredients that most people all ready have in their kitchen. Mix up your masks by hand or give them a quick whaz in the blender, make a nice cup of herbal tea or a delicious smoothie then kick up your feet, relax and unwind while you read your favourite blog pages! (wink, wink, nudge, nudge …)

If you loved these simple DIY beauty recipes try making these easy switches with your regular beauty products at home to cut out the chemicals and opt for a more natural and inexpensive beauty routine.

  • Switch your body moisturizer for organic coconut oil – coconut oil is super hydrating and smells delicious.
  • Make-up removers have all kinds of nasties hidden inside. For a natural alternative try coconut oil.
  • Rather than purchasing your favourite fragrance, try using essential oils instead. The best bit is you can combine your different oils to create your own personal scent.
  • Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is a great facial toner and is great for blemishes.
  • Makeup – ladies if you are a dedicated makeup user and the thought of stepping outside without your face on sends you into a sheer panic, then i suggest you try using a mineral makeup instead. Mineral makeup is gentler on the skin containing less binders, parabens and other harmful ingredients. They also contain minerals that are beneficial to the skin, allowing it to breathe naturally without clogging pores. Make sure that the mineral bases you are choosing are fragrance and preservative free.
