Danielle has created 2 tips to help you get creative and make your own pampering products to enjoy yourself at home or give as a Christmas Gift!
So here is Danielle’s first Christmas beauty tip... Chocolate & Honey Homemade Face Mask Chocolate is rich in vitamins, nourishes your skin, antioxidant, it helps to protect skin from free radicals and help signs of aging. Flavanols (in chocolate) decrease the harmful effects of UV rays on the skin while enhancing elasticity and hydration. Honey is antibacterial, antiseptic and is also a humectant this means it keeps the skin moisture locked into the skin without making it oily! You will need: - Cocoa powder - Honey - Jar/container - A spoon/ mixing tool You could even add your favourite Christmas spice for example cinnamon... Whip up together in a jar, if the paste is too thick add more honey Leave on for 15-20 mins Perfect to enjoy as a little home festive pamper session or to give as a gift!
Danielle’s Festive Pamper Tip #2
Brown Sugar & Honey Body Scrub
Brown sugar's granulated particles exfoliate your skin, clearing away dry and dead skin cells. This helps create a smoother skin and lends a youthful glow. Brown sugar also has anti-bacterial properties and glycolic acid that keeps your skin radiant and healthy.
Honey is a humectant which helps your skin absorb and retain moisture which keeps it from drying out. Honey is packed with natural antioxidants and anti-microbial properties which help protect, repair and prevent skin damage. Honey is also quite calming to the skin.
You will need:
- Honey - Brown sugar - Jar/ container - A spoon/ something to mix with
You could even add vanilla extract to make it extra special
1. Place the brown sugar and honey in a small bowl and mix together well. Store in a jar with an air tight lid. 2. Keep at room temperature. 3. TO USE: Wash well. Apply a small amount of scrub to wet skin and massage gently in a circular motion. Avoid eye area (if using on the facial area). Rinse (face, body) well and pat dry.
Whip up together in a jar and that’s it! Another homemade gift or a sneaky treat for you! Love The Pamper Lounge Family X
