5 DIY Beauty Treatments

It’s no secret that most of us would do just about anything to get our hands on the latest and greatest in beauty. Whether it’s a new glow in the dark hair trend (more on that later), or a new innovative filler that promises to make you look twenty years younger, sometimes you don’t need to look any further than your kitchen cabinet. I stopped by WGN Morning News to chat about some of the coolest and most effective products that all include one primary ingredient: Honey. Yes, you read that correctly. Honey simultaneously combats bacteria and seals in moisture, so it’s a BOSS for hair, skin and body care.

5 DIY Beauty Treatments.

5 DIY Beauty Treatments.


Deep Conditioning Hair Mask

½ of an avocado
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of honey

Because we all need to deep condition from time to time, especially if you live in frigid temps like me. I’ve learned that it’s best mash the avocado first before you add the other ingredients so that it blends smoothly. Apply to the hair from root to tip and leave on for about 20 minutes. Shampoo, condition and style as desired.

Anti-Blemish Face Mask

2 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 teaspoon of nutmeg
2 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon of lemon
Who doesn’t want a super smooth complexion? Mix together this cocktail, and leave on for about 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and moisturize as you normally would.

Split End Hair Treatment:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 large egg
2 tablespoon coconut oil

DISCLOSURE: There is no real way to combat split ends. Real talk, you just need to go to the salon and get a haircut. BUT! To control your frizzy ends, combine these ingredients (preferably whisk) together and apply mid length to the ends of the hair and leave on for at least 45 minutes. Protein found in eggs is a great source of strength and shine for the hair. Sounds gross, but I’ve heard plenty of success stories.

Foaming Bath Soap

1 cup almond oil, extract or Jojoba Oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup liquid hand soap
2 tablespoons vanilla extract

Perfect for people who suffer from allergies, skin sensitivities, or for those who just want to show off in front of their friends. I like the Jojoba Oil because of the way it smells, but the almond oil works just as well. Mix ‘em together, and you can use the soap right away, or save for later.

Dry Skin Face Mask

1/2 cup of oatmeal
1/2 cup of milk
1 tablespoon of honey

I prefer to call it the breakfast face mask. It’s your standard oatmeal, honey and milk heaven in a bowl for your face. It’s perfect for people who have sensitive skin, eczema, or who are allergic to perfumes and dyes in over the counter products. Simply cook the oatmeal in the microwave or over the stovetop, and then add your milk and honey. Leave on for about 30 minutes then rinse. Moisturize and continue with your regular routine!
