6 Easy Do-It-Yourself Skin Care Solutions

Moisturizing Body Scrub

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of honey.

Add sugar, olive oil, and honey into a container (in that order so that the honey slides easily off the spoon). Mix well. Use on the face and body.

Note: Don’t refrigerate. Also, the sugar has a habit of settling to the bottom of the container, just mix it up before each use.

Pedicure-Ready Toenails In 10 Minutes

Cover your feet in lotion past the point where you can rub it in, put them in plastic grocery bags, then tie the bags up tightly around your ankles. Again with the natural body heat, and after ten minutes you’ll have soft, pedicure-ready toenails, cuticles, and callouses. You don’t need a big pack of tools, just a nail-clipper, popsicle stick for pushing back cuticles, and a cheap ole pumice stone.

Hair Conditioner For Soft Shaving

If you run out of shaving cream: instead of using soap in its place, use hair conditioner. It makes your legs super soft and isn’t as irritating as soap!

Aspirin Mask

Take a tablet of UNCOATED aspirin. Place the tablet on a plate, and add a few drops of water to create a fairly thick, grainy paste. Not too much, it shouldn’t be watery. Just enough water to dissolve the aspirin. Smooth all over the face and wash off ten minutes later.

Word of caution though, test it out on a small patch of skin, like your inner wrist, for possible reactions. It’s basically a salicylic acid mask, reduces inflammation. If you have bad acne or have otherwise irritated your skin, it’s perfect to bring down inflammation quickly.

You can add a dollop of honey to counterbalance the drying aspect. It’s also supposed to bring blood to the surface of your skin. Some people suggested this method as a spot treatment for piercing scars.

Piercing Cleaner

Salt water should be all you need to clean a piercing that is healing well. Don’t use Peroxide, all it does is strip away the bad bacteria AND the good bacteria and you end up with an over-cleaned, dry piercing that will take longer to heal.


Use aquaphor as lipgloss – its the best lipgloss ever tried 🙂
