DIY Mint Facial Beauty Products
The mint in my terrace herb garden has been growing like crazy lately, as this herb is known to do. Even if you have a black thumb and very little outdoor or planting space, if you would like to start growing your own herbs, mint is a great place to start. It grows quickly and in a variety of environments (full sun or partial sun and can withstand a variety of temperatures). It also can be incorporated into a variety of food dishes and is amazingly easy to use for DIY beauty products. Mint is refreshing and cool for your skin, which is perfect during this time of year, and helps with skin irritations and blemishes.
Three of my favorite DIY beauty products with mint are above: mint blemish remover, mint lip scrub and a mint facial mask. Simply combine the ingredients listed in the photographs above and you are set. Each keeps well in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks. Also, I like to keep the chopped mint leaves in the products to retain their minty freshness, however, you can also use a sieve to keep the larger chopped leaves out before incorporating the ingredients. And don’t forget to keep these in mind next time you need an extra special handmade gift for a friend or family member!

For all my baker friends out there - before you add the sugar put a little egg whites on your face. Baking and beauty!
Whipped egg whites applied to washed and dried skin are a fantastic quick fix to clear read spots and firm up your face in minutes. Simply separate a couple of whites from the yokes of free range, whip up them up and smooth over your face. Leave for 20m minutes and then gently wash off with warm water.
