As long as you’re going green with recycling, why not take it a step further and replace your beauty supplies with all-natural products that you can make yourself? Using these recipes from Simply Sabuni Cares that include everyday ingredients like yogurt, pumpkin and cinnamon, you can create your own spa at home and glam yourself into a more beautiful, natural you!
1. Yogurt Face Mask
For a refreshing face mask, combine one cup of yogurt one-half cup of honey and mix in one cup of blended cucumber. Leave this mixture on your face for 15 minutes, then remove. Tip: Even if the yogurt is a few days past the expiration, it is still okay to use.
2. Recycled Blush
Refill an old compact with a mixture of cinnamon and powdered white sugar (add as much or as little as you want to create the right shade). Then add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to bond the powders and create an organic blush that looks — and smells — fabulous.
3. Pumpkin Foot Scrub
Soften rough, dry feet by combining one-quarter cup cooked or canned pumpkin puree, one-quarter cup brown sugar, one tablespoon of almond oil (olive oil or jojoba oil), one tablespoon ground coffee beans and the juice from one-half of a lemon. Mix all of the ingredients in a big bowl and then scrub your feet well. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Bonus: Leftovers can be used in the shower on other body parts!
