Oat and rose petal clay mask

Rose has been used for centuries in skin care. Rose petals contain carotene, B group vitamins and vitamin K. The petals of this beautiful flower are not only soothing, but also contain a good amount of vitamin C. Ascorbic acid of this plant will smooth, tone and moisturise dry, sensitive skin. Bacteria die within five minutes when contacted with fresh rose petals which makes rose a perfect medicine for fighting skin diseases. Fresh rose petals will help cure wounds and burns; they can also help in healing allergic itchy skin. Oatmeal is well known for its softening properties. Ground oatmeal in this mask will gently exfoliate and smooth your skin. If your skin is combination, prone to breakouts, clogs, dryness, flakes and/or redness, ground oatmeal mixed with honey is a great remedy. It will leave your skin soft and healthy. My favourite clay combination is red & white clay or red & rhassoul. I make a clay mask once a week and every time I look forward to its silky feel on my skin. Sometimes I get those horrible under the …

Tea tree oil face wash

A few weekends ago my friend and I had a little Spa Saturday at my place. After a lovely walk along the beach in Brighton, we travelled home to have a good night sleep and wake up to a little  homemade beauty routine. While my friend was enjoying her Sunday morning with a cup of coffee I was pleasantly busy  brewing and cooking little treats in the kitchen. I made a simple, yet extremely effective face wash with tea tree oil. It’s great in many ways, removes all the dirt, freshens and revives your skin, keeps it clean and clear. It contains lots of oil and therefore removes makeup very well.  Aloe vera gel will feel smooth and cool on your face and a faint scent of  tea tree essential oil not only protects your face skin from bacteria, but calms and soothes it down. 20ml of aloe vera gel 10ml of your favorite oil 30 drops of  tea tree essential oil Whisk the aloe vera and the oil in a bowl until a white gel is produced. Add …

Home spa day

I was just wondering… do you have a spa day at home? Do you honestly stick to your routine? It’s really interesting what kind of beauty procedures people do to maintain radiant and clear skin, sleek and shiny hair… I keep thinking is it enough to just choose one day and try to keep up with the regime?  Isn’t it great to wake up on a Saturday morning and immerse ourselves into a natural, orange and vanilla scented beauty routine! I start my spa day with 2 cups of water (just like every day) to clear my body from all the build up. I then look into the fridge and cupboards to see what do I have in my kitchen I could use…  I like making different hair masks every week, different sugar/salt body scrubs (I noticed that lately I have been using mainly salty ones) and I always stick to my clay face masks. I am telling you, clay face masks are so miraculous and effective, clearing, gently exfoliating, nourishing and powerful, that I just can’t get enough of them! Let’s start with a Homemade hair mask. When I was little, my mum …
