DIY Self-Care at Home

by Lexi Smith |

This week we want to focus on self-care that you can do from the comfort of your own home! Even though the gym and estheticians are closed right now, that doesn’t mean you still can’t focus on self-care. A lot of us are still working from home, us included, so we’re gonna show you how to still look your best on your video conference calls with products you can find around your house.


It is easy and fun to DIY, do it yourself, masks!


Face Masks


Calming Face Mask

Combine the following ingredients:

½ hot, but not boiling water

⅓ cup oats

After three minutes mix in the following ingredients:

2 tablespoons plain yogurt

2 tablespoons honey


Apply the mask to your face for 10 to 15 minutes, then wash off.


This super tasty mask has rich probiotics within yogurt to soothe, while the oats help with anti-inflammatory, and the honey tightens your skin.


Hydrating Face Mask

Combine the following ingredients:

½ an avocado

2 tablespoons yogurt

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 tablespoon honey


Apply the mask to your face for 10 to 15 minutes, then wash off.


All of the ingredients within this mask hydrate and plump the skin. The omega fatty acids within the avocado help the skin to seal cracks, locking in hydration. Coconut also has great skin-loving fatty acids, specifically lots of lauric acid. Honey is a humectant, meaning that it draws moisture from the air to deeply hydrate the skin. The yogurt is a wonderful base for this mask that plumps the skin. 


Acne Clarifying Face Mask

Combine the following ingredients:

1 tablespoon of baking soda

1 teaspoon of honey

½ of a ripe banana 

½ teaspoon turmeric


Apply the mask to your face for 10 minutes, then wash off.


The baking soda within the mask exfoliates while absorbing excess oil on the skin, then honey restores moisture to the exfoliated skin by drawing moisture from the air to deep hydration. The turmeric fights acne-causing bacteria, while lastly, the banana brightens the skin by stimulating cell turnover.


Hair Masks


Hydrating Hair Mask

Combine the following ingredients:

1 teaspoon of honey

1 egg

1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar 


The recipe can be adjusted for your length of hair.


Apply the mask to your hair for 20 to 30 minutes, then wash out.


This super easy mask adds hydration to the hair thanks to the honey in the mask while leaving it shiny and not weighed down.


Flaky Scalp Hair Mask

Combine the following ingredients:

2 tablespoons coconut oil

4 teaspoons sugar

2 drops of tea tree oil

5 drops of your favorite essential oil, we recommend peppermint for promoting circulation of the scalp


The recipe can be adjusted for your length of hair.


Massage this mask into your scalp in the shower for 1 to 3 three minutes. After, let the mask sit on your scalp for the rest of your shower, before rinsing it out.


This mask is sure to leave your scalp refreshed and flake-free, with all-natural ingredients that you can customize! Sugar does a great job of breaking down glycolic acid, dissolving dead skin cells, while the rich fatty acids in the coconut oil have anti-inflammatory benefits. And finally, the tea tree oil fights off antifungal, antimicrobial, and antibacterial.


Bridal Hair Mask

Combine the following ingredients:

½ a ripe avocado

1 egg yolk

½ of a banana

1 tablespoon olive oil


The recipe can be adjusted for your length of hair.


For the best results, apply this mask to your hair for 20 to 30 minutes once a week for 1 to 2 months, before your wedding, or just for the most beautiful hair of your life!


This beautiful mask has rich fatty acids from the avocado to nourish and strengthen the hair while also giving it shine. The phytosterols and vitamin E, within the avocado, absorb into the hair and scalp stimulating growth and protecting against damaged dry hair. The egg yolk also helps to stimulate hair growth while eliminating dandruff. Magnesium in the banana fights against hair loss, while the olive oil strengths and nourishes the scalp, and its roots.
