DIY Beauty: round up of my favorites recipes

DIY Beauty Recipes DIY Beauty: round up of my favorites recipes

I haven’t been able to post any new DIY beauty recipes because I have no time to try anything at all. There are just so much happening these two months that I have to shelf my DIY projects to next year. However, I do have quite a good archive of recipes here to keep you busy. To start with, you might want to try some of my personal favorites listed below:

Okay, after being totally frustrated that Klorane had pulled out my favorite dry shampoo from the shelves, I decided to improve my DIY dry shampoo formula. So I headed to the supermarket to get a pack of arrowroot powder. I seriously cannot remember how I got to know about this powder and I wasn’t even sure if it’ll work. But being desperate, I decided to throw caution to the wind. But knowing that the Victorians used to sprinkle arrowroot ­powder on their hair to help absorb grease definitely brought me some comfort.

This is THE most delicious homemade face masks I’ve whipped up ever! If you like chocolate, and you particularly like Hershey’s chocolate, let me warn you: this is very addictive to your senses! Seriously, I had to exercise severe restraint every time I made this as I really wanted so much to just slurped up the concoction. Even though I couldn’t put it in my mouth, the mere scent of this is just DIVINE! And let me tell you – this doesn’t just send my spirits soaring, it actually does make my skin glow too! No wonder Dr. Oz recommended this to be used on the fifth day of Christmas!

Okay, hands up those of you who are into using the konjac sponge. I see some hands…and my is up too. All right, before some of you get too excited, we’re not going to discuss about konjac sponge today. Rather, I’m going to share with you my DIY konjac jelly face mask. I figured out that since the sponges are made with food grade konjac powder, then I suppose I’m not too far off if I use the konjac jelly powder in my DIY recipe. Afterall, the konjac sponge do smell exactly like the konjac jelly powder I have here.
