DIY Milk Foot Soak

Who has super soft feet right now? I do! Would you like moisturized, super soft feet too.

Pour 1-2 cups of milk and 1-2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil into your bathtub or a large bowl. Add enough hot water to completely cover your feet.

Soak your feet in the mixture for 20-30 minutes. Be sure to enjoy this time. Put on an episode of your favorite television show, read a book or magazine, listen to music or read a blog. Or, treat yourself a little more. Combine this DIY Face Mask using banana, lemon juice and honey or this DIY Oatmeal Face Mask; brighten your nails; or try this DIY Hair Mask.

After you have finished soaking your feet and you have dried them completely finish with your favorite moisturizer. I like to hold in the moisture with this DIY toe-less sock.

I hope you enjoy this DIY Foot Soak. If you try it, please feel free to leave a comment below letting me know how you liked it. I would also love to hear what your favorite foot soak is! Is it a DIY? I’m always looking for new DIY projects to try!

DIY Oatmeal Face Mask

If you’re looking for a way to exfoliate your skin while absorbing excess oils, look no further than your kitchen, or at the very least, the closest grocery store.

This mask calls for two ingredients – lemon juice and plain instant oatmeal.

In a bowl, combine 1 cup of instant oatmeal with just enough lemon juice to form a paste. Using your fingers, apply the mixture to your face, massaging lightly to exfoliate. Once you have applied the oatmeal face mask, sit back and allow it to dry completely, then rinse well with warm water.OATMEAL FACE MASK 1

The first time I tried this mask I applied a very thick layer to my face and it took forever to dry – a thin layer is all you need.

I am always looking for new DIY face masks to try. If you have any suggestions please leave it as a comment or send me an e-mail. If you have a tutorial on your blog that you would like me to use the post will include a link to your blog.

DIY: Banana and Avocado Hair Mask

IMG_8375

Are you looking to put an avocado and a banana to good use? I was, and I crossed my fingers as I mixed the two together that this would work. I could have sworn that months ago I had saved the information, either on my computer or in my journal, for a similar hair mask. Unable to find it, I assumed it would be fine as I have definitely seen both of these ingredients used in other hair masks before.

This is as simple as combining a banana and an avocado together in a bowl and mashing. I cut both into smaller pieces before I began mashing. It wasn’t difficult, but next time I think I’ll use my Magic Bullet.

Before I began, I took a shower and washed my hair. I used a towel to squeeze excess water out but it was still quite damp. Immediately before applying the hair mask, I used a comb to get any tangles out, and I draped a towel over my shoulders/around my neck, then using my fingers, I combed the mixture through my hair.

The last time I used a conditioning hair mask I left it on for 20 minutes, so I did the same with this. After 20 very relaxing minutes, after all, there’s not much you can do with banana and avocado in your hair, I rinsed my hair in the shower and dried as usual.

Success! My hair is super soft, and it smells amazing!
