Have you been cooking all afternoon, and still have some ingredients left? Or do you feel like turning your house into a spa without spending too much? In this article, we’ll explain how you can give yourself a pampering moment with things everyone has at home or with a few leftovers. At the same time it is a great way to reduce wast! Because honestly, we are more tempted to throw away our leftovers rather than using it to create something new such as a face mask or body scrub
Today’s plan? Make plans, cancel plans and putting on a face mask.
Your skin is 90% of your selfie
Do you have a lot of blackheads, and are you tired of buying all kinds of new products over and over again? With this simple mask, you can remove your black spots in no time. All you need is an egg and tissues (even toilet paper is suitable for this).
Separate the yolk from the egg white, and beat the egg white up lightly, add a teaspoon of lemon juice if necessary. After that, you apply the substance on a cleansed face with the help of a brush. When your face is fully covered, you put one layer of tissues on top. Repeat these two steps and let it soak for half an hour. You will notice that it starts pulling, and the tissue has hardened a bit. Rinse your face with lukewarm water.
And there you go. You will have a radiantly soft face with fewer blackheads. After the mask, don’t forget to moisturize your face, and be careful when using the lemon juice, as not every skin type will react well to it.
Gorgeous hair is the best revenge
Now you’re undoubtedly wondering what you have to do with the remaining egg yolk. Well, we will use it to make a hair mask to take care of our dry locks. Mix the egg yolk with a tablespoon of olive oil and apply the mixture to towel-dried hair. If you have extremely dry tips, be sure to prioritize them.
After twenty minutes, it’s time to rinse it with cool water and to wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner. Leave it to dry as usual, and you will have soft, moisturized hair. If you have any leftovers, you can always keep it in the fridge for a week if it’s in an airtight jar.
It’s coffee time!
The coffee fans among us know for sure that we dump a lot of coffee grit in the trash. And that is a massive sin since we can make a lovely coffee scrub out of it. For this, you can use the used coffee grit or just the ground coffee in the cupboard. Before you make this scrub, you have to remember that you have to use it immediately as you can’t keep it for long.
To start, you mix two tablespoons of coffee grit, two tablespoons of sugar with a tablespoon of olive oil. You can adjust the quantity to your liking. After the substance is ready, give it a good scrub on your body. The sugar and oil in the mixture ensure that your skin is smooth and clean, while the caffeine in the coffee is said to have a beneficial effect on cellulite.
For the face, you can also use this preparation, but we recommend to use coffee grit instead of ground coffee, as this is softer for the face.
Long hair, don’t care
With this substance, you can grow your hair in no time. All you need is rice (any kind is suitable) and water. You boil the rice like indicated on the package. When your rice is ready, pour it off, but collect the water in a bowl.
Leave the water to ferment for a while. When it has cooled down and has a milky white color, it is ready to use. Wash your hair as usual and finish by pouring the rice water over your hair. Make sure you spread everything out well and massage your scalp well.
After a few minutes, rinse it out. The particular smell of the rice water disappears as soon as your hair is dry. Use this mixture once or twice a week to stimulate hair growth and make your hair stronger, softer, and brighter.
