DIY Tumeric Brightening mask

Tumeric, the golden spice of life, is a natural ingredient that is used for more than just cooking. It can be used as an all-natural skincare ingredient that can be applied topically to brighten your face for glowing skin. Tumeric has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-aging properties, and it can also reduce the visibility of acne scars. This makes it a great ingredient to use as a face mask.

My mom and grandma have been using tumeric for as long as I can remember, not just for cooking, but as a face mask. Many people have their own versions of this diy mask, but this is the way that I have always learned to use it.

 

Products Used:
Tumeric
Milk
Fresh Lemon Juice
Chickpea Flower
Honey (optional)

Directions:

  • mix all the ingredients together until you get a paste. The mixture should have a texture similar to pancake batter.
  • with a brush apply all over face and let sit till it hardens. I usally leave it for about thirty minutes.
  • rinse off with a warm, wet wash cloth
  • moisturize face

– Make sure you are wearing an old shirt that you don’t really care about because tumeric can stain your clothing.

Favorite Bubble Bath!

Happy Friday Loves!!

It’s been raining a lot here this week and for me rainy days are perfect for a girls night and relaxing after a busy week of school. My favorite way to relax is by taking bubble bath. I only got this a few months ago, and Wow!! this is the best bubble bath ever! The Lavender Foaming Bath from L’Occitaine is probably one of the the best products I have used, and it’s perfect for a little girl time and a night in, and it smells amazing! The lavender scent is heavenly, and not too strong, and when you get out of the bath the scent lingers on your skin and its very soothing and relaxing. The packaging is one of my favorite things about this. I love that it comes in a brushed-aluminium bottle. I so simple and classy that it reminds me of France and of the metal bottles that were used in the past to hold fragrances.

The only downside to this product is that it is a little on the pricy side, and sells for $36 for about 170z. But for me personally I think that this bath is worth the price. A little goes a long way, and it leaves your skin feeling clean and fragrant. If your looking for a great new bath product I would recommend this one! Just pour a little bit under some running hot water, and let the scent relax and stimulate your mind and transport you to the rugged hills of Provence.

ps: this is just my personal opinion of this product, this product is not for everyone, and I advise to try it out to see if this product is for you.

 

Braided Crown Helpful hints!

After months and months at attempting a braided crown I finally got it. This was my first time actually getting this and I was so excited I wanted to share it with all of you!! and some tricks I learned along the way to help make achieving this braid a little easier.

ps: I am not a braiding expert, I just have really curly/wavy frizzy hair and I don’t like to use hot tools all the time and I find braiding an easy cute alternative to heat styling.

  • Doing a dutch braid you braid under instead of over (french braid). This makes for a more defined braid and your braid will be on top.
  • Where ever you place your hands while braiding is where your braid will go, so try and keep your hands as close to your hair line as possible to get a crown effect.
  • If you have layered hair I would suggest braiding when your hair is a little damp, to help you catch any looses ends so your braid is cleaner and less messy like mine was. Or use some kind of hair wax to add a little texture to your dry hair and prevent less flyways, and hold everything in place.
  • This hairstyle works best on hair that is two or three days old, and not freshly washed hair. Clean hair is harder to work with and less malleable.
  • Spray your hair with a little bit of dry shampoo (I use Dove) and a little bit of hairspray to keep the frizz a little bit under control.
  • While braiding keep your braid pretty tight, you can loosen it up after your done braiding by pancaking your braid (spreading out the ends to fluff your braid and make it look fuller)
  • Take your time and be patient, you might have to redo your braid a few times till you get the technique right. And make sure you alternate your hands when you braid in the back of your head.
  • Watch various videos on youtube. Each tutorial has a different technique and it will help you find the best way to braid for you.

I hope that you find some of these tips helpful when you are trying your braided crown!!
