Make Your Own Body Scrubs
Three-Ingredient Coffee Sugar Scrub

• 1 part coffee grounds • 1 part coconut oil • 1 part brown sugar

Combine all ingredients in a bowl to form a gritty paste. Smooth over your skin in the shower when you need an invigorating, all-over exfoliation. The caffeine in the coffee has a natural plumping and tightening effect. Store excess in an airtight container.

Green Tea Sugar Scrub

• 1 cup granulated sugar • 1/8 cup grapeseed oil • 1/8 cup brewed green tea, cooled • 1 bag green tea, not brewed

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, making sure to add the brewed tea slowly until your mixture is the consistency of wet sand. Open the unused tea bag and add the contents to the mixture to add a delicious scent and texture to your scrub. Store in an airtight container.

Face Masks You Can Whip Up Right in Your Kitchen

Oil-Reducing Cucumber Face Mask

• 1/2 cucumber • 2 tablespoons ground oatmeal • 2 teaspoons lemon juice • 1 tablespoon honey

Cut the cucumber into cubes and combine with the rest of the ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Apply to a clean, dry face and let it sit for 15 minutes. When you rinse, scrub in circular motions to reap the exfoliating benefits of the oatmeal.

Soothing Pumpkin Face Mask

• 1/4 cup pumpkin puree • 1 egg • 1 tablespoon honey • 1 tablespoon milk

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and apply to the face with a mask brush -- a clean paintbrush also works. Leave on for 20 minutes or until mask starts to crack. Wash off with warm water. Chock-full of skin savers like vitamin A (for smoothing wrinkles) and vitamin C (for lightening dark spots), the pumpkin will leave your skin glowy and refreshed.

Homemade Hair Masks

Moisturizing Hair Mask

• 2 teaspoons olive oil • 1 large egg, room temperature • 2 teaspoons coconut oil • 1 teaspoon honey

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mixing until ingredients are well incorporated. Massage mixture into dry hair. For more intense hydration, put on a shower cap and let the mask sit for 30 minutes. Follow with shampoo and conditioner.

Scalp-Clarifying Clay Hair Mask

• 1/2 cup bentonite clay (find it for cheap on Amazon) • 1 tablespoon coconut oil • 1 tablespoon castor oil • 1 tablespoon sweet almond oil • 6 tablespoons apple cider vinegar • 3 tablespoons water

Start by adding clay to a clean bowl. Mix in the oils, followed by the apple cider vinegar and let the mixture sit for 15 minutes. (This will cause a foamy reaction.) Finally, add the water and blend the ingredients to a yogurt-like consistency. Apply to hair and let sit for 30 minutes before washing and conditioning.
