With the polar vortex nearly in full effect, our skin seems to be suffering the most. The cold, harsh wind takes a toll on our skin, so it’s up to us to remedy the damage. I found this great Lulu*s tutorial that provides some easy and fun DIY at-home treatments to give a full spa day effect. Check out these simple recipes, try them out, and let me know which ones are your favorites!


1. Brown Sugar Scrub for Chapped Lips
-1 tbsp Brown Sugar (try Domino Light Brown Sugar)
-1 tbsp Olive Oil (try Filippo Berio Olive Oil)
-1/2 tsp Honey (try Honey Gardens Honey Raw Organic Liquid)
Mix the brown sugar with the olive oil. Once fully mixed, add in the 1/2 tsp of honey. Apply a pea size amount to lips in circular motion. And voila! Super soft lips!

2. Oatmeal and Honey Facial for Dry and Dull Skin
-1 cup Dry Oats (try Quaker Old Fashioned Oats)
-1/2 cup Warm Water (filter you water with a Brita Water Filters)
-1/4 cup Honey
Mix 1 cup of dry oats with 1/2 cup warm water in blender. Blend until oats are ground thinly and pour into bowl. Mix in honey and apply to your face, leaving on about 10-15 minutes!

3. Peppermint Body Scrub for a Relaxing Shower
-2 cup Raw Sugar
-1/2 cup Grapeseed Oil (try Sadaf Pure Grapeseed Oil)
-1 tsp Peppermint Essential Oil (try Heritage Peppermint Essential Oil)
Mix all ingredients in bowl and place in a dry mason jar. To use the scrub, mix small amount in your wet hand and massage onto body. Rinse and pat dry.

4. Pumpkin Facial for Smooth Skin
-2 tsp Pumpkin Puree (if you can’t get a real pumpkin try Libbys 100% Pure Pumpkin)
-1/2 tsp Honey
-1/2 tsp Organic Milk (Almond Milk is a great substitute!) (try Silk Almond Milk)
For Puree: Cut pumpkin into slices or cubes , discarding seeds and strings in trash. Steam pumpkin for about 15 minutes, or until soft enough for a fork to smoothly go in. Blend in blender or food processor until smooth, but not watery. Mix ingredients together in a bowl, and apply to clean dry face. Let dry for about 20 minutes, then rinse.

5. Avocado Hair Mask for Dry Hair
-1 Avocado
-2 tbsp Honey
-1 tbsp Olive Oil
Blend one ripe avocado with olive oil and honey. Apply thoroughly from root to end and cover with a shower cap for about 30 minutes, depending on the texture and dryness of your hair. Rinse with cool water.

Turn on a chick flick, light some candles, and treat yourself to an at home-spa day! I know I’ll be trying out some of these recipes this weekend while hiding from the snowy weather. Be sure to let me know which treatments are your favorites!
