Pumpkin Coconut Almond Face Mask

DSC_1071-620x775

 

This face mask looks amazing, I mean love anything containing pumpkin (the same goes for almonds and coconuts so..) so when I saw this at “The Kitchy Kitchen” it pretty much made my day (thank you Diana for sending me her blog). Let’s hope it’s as amazing as I think it is

Ingredients

1/4 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup whole milk

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 tablespoons almonds (grind in food processor until powdery)

Mix all ingredients together to form a paste and apply to skin using fingers.  Leave on for 30 minutes and then wash off.  (You can also change the coarseness of the almonds to make this more of a scrub.)

2 Ways To Make Your Lips Pinker: Free People

Pink_Lips1

One is to rub lemon juice onto your lips before bedtime to bring out their natural color. After you have applied the lemon juice wait for them to dry and then moisturize them. Do this just once a week as lemon juice can dry your lips out.

The second is beetroot juice. By rubbing beetroot juice on your lips before going to bed you start to create a natural lip stain effect. You can either buy a jar of beetroots and place a small sponge inside to soak up the juice or cut a piece of beetroot and rub it on your lips — but this can be a little messy. Do this for 5 minutes and wash your hands afterwards. D0 this about three times a week and see if you can tell the difference!

Avocado & Oil Hair mask

On my evening tryingtoavoidtheworkthatishouldbedoing internet time I found this hair beauty tip.. sounds great!!

“I have a hair mask trick! It’s not an exact science, but here’s my method: I take one super ripe avocado; halve, peel and de-seed it and put it in a bowl. I mash it with my hands but you could probably use a tool of some sort. Then add about ¼ cup of olive oil (really just enough to thin the avocado paste out a bit — it should be like a paste, not soup). Then I mix in 2 eggs. Once thoroughly mixed I apply generously all over my hair — I focus on the roots because that’s where I need it most, but some people might feel like the tips is where they want to concentrate the mixture. Next wrap your hair in plastic wrap and let sit! I usually do about 20 minutes, then get in the shower and stand and let the heat give the mask a final kick. Then I take the plastic wrap off and rinse! I shampoo after because I just had food in my hair, but I’ve heard some people don’t. It’s a personal choice. That once every 6 weeks is how my hair has gone from brown to red to brown to blonde to black and doesn’t look totally fried!”
