Cheap Summer Beauty!

Okay so in honor of the warm weather and the fact that we all love to wear shorts and swimsuits when it gets warmer I am posting some cheap at home beauty treatments I found to take care of our hair and skin so that we can all look great! :)

Pomegranate Body Scrub
1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsp oil
1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil (opt)
In a small bowl combine sugar and pomegranate seeds and crush both with a spoon. Add oil and mix. The pomegranate will naturally scent the scrub but if you want additional scent add a couple drops of essential oil. Massage gently onto damp skin. There should be enough for a full body scrub.

Yogurt Face Mask
1 cup yogurt
1 tbl turmeric powder
Cleanse face and remove all makeup combine yogurt and turmeric. Brush an even coating on face neck and chest using a clean makeup brush or paint brush. Leave on for five to ten minutes then rinse off and follow with moisturizer.

Citrus Hand Scrub
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sunflower oil
a few drops of your favorite perfume or essential oil for scent
1/2 a lemon or lime
In a small bowl, mix the sugar, sunflower oil, and essntial oil.
Squeeze the lemon or lime juice into the mixture right before you're ready to use. Rub mixture onto hands and feet, then rinse. Follow with moisturizer.

Avacado Hair Mask
Half an avocado, mashed
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup sweet almond oil
Combine all the ingredients and mix well into a paste. Brush on wet hair paying special attention to the ends and let it sit a minimum of 30 minutes while you relax. Rinse out.

Honey Bath
1 cup sweet almond, olive, or sesame oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup liquid soap
1 tbl vanilla extract
Place oil into a bowl then carefully stir in remaining ingredients until fully blended store in a clean plastic bottle and shake before using. Add to running tap water.

Well that's it! I hope you all enjoy!
