When winter is wreaking havoc on your skin, head straight to the kitchen and whip up some money saving remedies for the entire family! Here are a few of my favorite DIY home remedies that are tested and approved by my 3 little city girls!
Honey & Olive Oil Face and Neck Mask:
Try mixing one heaping tablespoon of honey, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon into a small ziplock bag. Mix it around until perfectly blended. Leave it on your face and neck for about 30 minutes and wipe off with a warm wash towel!
Coconut Oil and Olive Oil Face Mask:
Mix a tablespoon of olive oil with a tablespoon of organic coconut oil. I prefer to use and store my mixture in a sandwich bag in case I make too much, I can store the rest for the following day.
Apply a thin layer on to your freshly washed face and neck evenly before bed and leave it on until the morning. Simply wash it off in a warm shower or use a warm wash towel to wipe any excess oil off.
Dry Feet and Cracked Heels:
Apple cider vinegar and Listerine can work magic! Soak your feet in a solution of 1 cup of Listerine, 1 cup of apple cider vinegar, and 2 cups of warm water for 10 to 15 minutes and scrub off that dead skin!
In a house full of girls everything winter comes in 3! We all suffer from dry scalp! Here’s one of my favorite home remedies!
Mix 1/2 cup of water with 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar.
massage your mixture onto your scalp and leave in for about 10 minutes. I recently started using an organic tea tree oil shampoo brand and see a difference!
