With another lockdown kicking in, we are provided with yet another opportunity to take care of ourselves mentally, emotionally, and physically. Therefore, what better time than this is best for making DIY home beauty treatments, huh?
We are way past the stage of making Dalgona coffees and weird haircut fiascos. Now is the time to focus on our faces and rejuvenate with some of the easiest beauty treatments which won’t take much time.
8 Best beauty treatments for face
- Treat your lips
Sugar and honey are the age-old ingredients used to make the natural bold lipstick that you could have only imagined in your dreams. Be that as it may, it is necessary to keep your lips hydrated and smooth before you apply the sugar and honey paste.
To smooth out those lips, you can mix one tablespoon of brown sugar with one tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl. Mix them extremely well before you get a paste of thick consistency. Next, apply the mixture to your lips and massage it well. After a minute or two of scrubbing, you can wash those lips with warm water and pat them dry.
Once you know that your lips are better than before, you can apply the sugar and honey lipstick.
- Bid adieus to those panda eyes
Turmeric is one of the best ancient foods which promotes the overall growth and development of your body. This especially works best for your eyes and removing those unwanted dark circles.
Just take one tablespoon of turmeric and mix it with one tablespoon of buttermilk and apply the mixture to your dark circles. You will see the results within no time.
Apart from turmeric, tea bags have also gained a lot of traction especially when it comes to removing all the puffiness under your eyes.
- Brighten your smile
The more you smile, the more confident and pleasant you look. However, if your teeth are not brushed white, you might not feel as confident and chances are, you will become extremely conscious about your teeth.
Therefore, to turn your teeth pearly white, you can use some baking soda and strawberries. Just mix both of them in equal amounts and apply the paste before you sleep at night. And since we are talking about maintaining the health of our teeth and turning them white, it is necessary to cut back on your coffee and chocolates.
- Facial steam
Steaming your face is one of the most effective ways to rejuvenate the quality of your skin and brighten up your face instantly. Pour some water into your vessel and start heating it on the stove. Once the water starts boiling, you can take a towel and wrap it around your head and shoulders. Bend your head towards the sink and enjoy the warm steam treating your face. You can stay in this position for approximately 10 to 15 minutes and pat it dry.
- Beautify your hands
COVID-19 is going to probably stay in for a long haul in our lives no matter what. This means that we will have to constantly wash our hands, sanitize them innumerable times in a day and wear gloves. In all these processes, one easily forgets to moisturize and nurture one hand. Consequently, all you have is dry and flaky hands, devoid of all the moisture and nourishment.
So, to give those hands the hydration and nourishment it needs, you can use Patchology’s self-warming gloves which provide you with Vitamin E, that is, extremely soothing and warming for your hands. Apart from that, you can also use Korean Innisfree’s solution which soothes your hand with its herbal extracts.
- Time to get those strands moisturized
When it comes to moisturizing your hair, there is nothing better than the perfect mixture of cold yogurt, egg, and honey. Or at least that’s what Priyanka Chopra Jonas said. Just mix these three ingredients well until you get a paste of fine consistency.
Then apply it from the roots of your hair to the tips. Leave the mixture on your hair for approximately half an hour and wash it with lukewarm water and a mild shampoo.
Another natural ingredient that works equally well on your hair and helps in moisturizing them is jojoba oil. You need not add any other ingredient to it as the oil is self-sufficient and has incredible benefits on your hair.
Just apply the oil to your hair and massage it for a significant period. You can apply the oil before you sleep at night and wash it in the morning with a mild shampoo.
Jojoba oil helps you in treating dandruff, a dry scalp, rejuvenate your brittle hair and escalate the growth of your hair.
- Gua Shua
One of the best ways to sculpt and tone your face is with the help of a gua shua. Gua shua finds its roots of origin in the ancient Chinese techniques which help you in reducing the wrinkles on your face, toning them, lifting those facial muscles, and contouring them. This helps in giving you a young and rejuvenated look.
Before using the gua shua on your face, you can first apply a serum to it. Use the gua shua in the upward direction towards your hairline.
- Get a glow up after a peel
Peeling is one of the most useful techniques to get an instant glow upon your face. A peel helps in the exfoliation of your face, which in turn, reduces the wrinkles, helps in fading the acne scars, and even helps in the reduction of pores.
One of the most effective peels that you can use is Dermalogica’s pumpkin enzyme which also contains a lactic acid formula. This combination helps you to get an instant glow up just within 3 minutes.
These are some of the home beauty treatments that are easy to do and render effective results. Perhaps, this is the best time for you to utilize your free time and take care of the overall health of your body.
