Natural Recipe Experiments

A lot of you know I’ve been experimenting with natural recipes for home beauty, and I’ve been having a blast while I’m at it! Thanks to extensive online research as well as a book a friend of mine gave filled with natural recipes for beauty, I’ve managed to change a large part of my beauty regime. And honestly, I have to admit the natural stuff works better and had longer lasting effects. For instance, a few months back I decided to seriously take care of my nails and try to get them to grow longer. Thus began my natural experiments. Now my nails are so shiny that a lot of people think I wear clear nail polish (which I don’t) and are longer than some people’s fake nails! My nails are definitely a source of pride.

But I’ve taken my natural experimenting further. When I’m home, I wash my face with a quick mask made of turmeric, yoghurt, and lemon juice every other day, which does wonders for my acne. And once a week, I do a mask of water and baking soda, which itches but pretty much kills every pimple I have.

I still had yet to experiment with an exfoliator, especially because baking soda and water exfoliates really well just on its own. But while I’m here, in England, I don’t have baking soda. I tried to come up with an exfoliator that didn’t force me to buy extra ingredients at the store. So after a bit of research, I came up with my own recipe, although it’s rather well known:

1 tbs milk

1 tbs honey

2 tbs salt

I used it on my face last night, and I’d have to say I am highly pleased. I mean, my face felt so smooth not just last night, but this morning, also! And my “travel blemishes”, as I call the acne I get whenever I travel, are dried up. Sweet. Definitely recommend this to anyone. Works way better than any store-bought exfoliator I’ve used.

    Hi! I’m glad you’ve found the wonderful world of homemade skin care 🙂 My blog,, is all about making your own products so maybe you’ll find some tips there.
    I just wanted to ask what you’re doing with your nails? I take extremely bad care of my nails and I really should start doing something about that… Any tips?
