DIY Lip Balm Recipe

Hello lovelies! As you are all aware its another end of year holidays season, which means we are in for some harsh weather conditions that our beautiful skin don't particularly like. Harmattan (if you are in Africa) and winter (in other parts of the world) can be very drying for our skin, hair and lips.

If you are a faithful reader of my blog then you know i'm a DIYer when it comes to most of my skincare products from masks, scrubs, soaps, body butters, oils etc.

I discovered the recipe for this DIY lip balm HERE, I tried it and loved it so much i decided to share it with you lovelies. So here goes!

Skincare for the Eye Area


That’s right, today we’re talking about eyes…

The skin around the eyes is the most delicate area of skin on your face, possibly the most delicate area of skin anywhere on your body. One way to reduce the appearance of these bruise-like marks around the eye is to not rub your eyes, and just generally be a bit more gentle with them.

Simple Homemade Anti-Aging Facials

We all want to age gracefully and hold on to our youthful skin for as long as we can. Wrinkles, crow’s feet, fine lines, laugh lines and dark spots are some of the biggest nightmares of every woman. Most women above the age of 30 thirty spend lots of money on clinical procedures and anti ageing creams to regain their youthful skin.


However, do you know that there are many home remedies to fight all signs of ageing without spending a fortune and without any side effects. Read further to know about the homemade anti-ageing tips for young and glowing skin.


1. Egg Mask:

Egg is a powerhouse of all the anti-ageing elements like omega3 fatty acid, proteins, zinc and the egg yolk contains a special anti-ageing compound called the “biotin”. Biotin helps in the fat production in the body and repairs the damaged skin, thus keeping the wrinkles away. Egg is known to tighten the skin and is known to be a great anti aging tip.

Homemade Remedies for Blackheads

If you have oily skin, then you are most likely to have clogged pores which causes enlarged pores and blackheads on your nose as well as other oil-prone areas of the face. Below are some homemade natural remedies for reducing large pores, oily skin, and blackheads. You can use these homemade face masks that you can make from natural ingredients that are usually found in the kitchen.

5 Best Homemade Face Mask to Remove Blackheads

Homemade facial masks are one of the best natural treatment methods to get rid of blackheads, large pores, and oily skin on face naturally and fast. These facial masks also help firm your skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve your skin texture. Give your skin a regular home facial with a face mask to absorb excess oil and deep clean the skin.

Baking Soda Mask
If you are prone to blackheads, a baking soda mask is one of the best masks for blackhead removal. Baking soda remedy is also an effective way to get rid of oily skin, acne, and large pores. Make a thick paste of baking soda and water or honey for extra moisture. Rinse your face thoroughly with warm water. Apply the paste on your wet face with the fingers. Move the paste over small areas of skin in a circular pattern, concentrating on the areas where you get most blackheads - the forehead, the nose, the chin, etc. Rinse well with warm water to remove the pack from the face. Baking soda clears the skin from impurities such as dead skin and clogged pores. Apply this facial mask 2 to 3 times a week of effective result.

DIY Eyeshadow Primer



As you might already know, I like using simple stuff around me to create beauty portions. I make my own scrubs, masks, body butter etc. You can then imagine my excitement when I discovered a DIY Eyeshadow Primer recipe on pinterest...It was an eureka! moment. Lol

I tried the original recipe which called for Vaseline, but i didn't really like the idea of Vaseline on my lid so i swapped the Vaseline for Shea Butter and it worked great. So lets get started.

Things you will need:
-A liquid concealer or foundation. I used Mary Kay Medium Coverage Foundation.
-A unscented/fragrance-free body lotion
- Vaseline or Chapstick. I used Organic Shea Butter.
-Corn Starch (If you are in Nigeria; Ogi)
-Q-Tips or any small item to mix the ingredients together.
-A small container to put it in. I used an old eye contact case.
