Skincare doesn’t have to be complicated. There are a number of everyday items you have in your household that you use to whip together simple, DIY beauty treatments. Hey, why not get your friends together for a girl’s night so you can pamper each other?

We have put together a few recipes for you below:

  • Rosewater and coconut milk are the perfect concoction for a relaxing bath! A few drops of Rosewater and half a cup of coconut milk will leave you feeling luxurious! Why not make it even better with a few candles, a good book and a cup of herbal tea?
  • Brown sugar and olive oil mixed together provide you with a gentle body scrub that isn’t harsh on the skin. The ration consistency will depend on your personal preferences
  • Suffering from dry skin? This moisturising facemask will provide your face with some much need moisture. Simply mix ½ a cup of oatmeal, juice from an orange, 3 tablespoons of greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey and 2 tablespoons of dried orange peel.
