These days where we are stuck at home working or lounging around, we are in much-needed self-care activities to get us going through the week.  Considering this, we gathered some DIY beauty routines from experts and celebrities that can help us unwind and feel recharged. With all this staying at home thing going on it’s very important that we make sure we are taking care of our bodies and minds by exercising and taking time to relax throughout this period. 

Now, for me, there’s nothing more satisfying than mixing and making my own beauty treatments. The feeling of creating your own concoctions is very relaxing and for some reason, I think I’m also helping the planet during the process. Here, we will share with you some of our favorite beauty treatments that you can make mostly from things you have in your house. So, let’s dig in.

Since the beginning of social distancing, the trips to the salon have been adjusted. These weekly or monthly visits haven’t been possible and we’ve needed to get creative at home. The most common at-home beauty buys and routines so far have been root touch-ups and hair masks. Rather than ordering some hair treatments online, you can give these hair mask recipes a try. They will make your strands more hydrated and soft with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.


Celebrities such as Priyanka Chopra have used it for years and swear by it. With only plain full-fat yogurt, one egg, and a teaspoon of honey mixed in a bowl you can start to create a very simple, yet effective basic hair mask. If the yogurt has a lot of cultures it can be extremely pH balancing and the honey acts as an antiseptic and has anti-inflammatory properties. 

If you are in a much-needed exfoliation of the scalp you can add brown sugar to this basic mix, and will be able to get rid of dead skin cells.  If you need to give your hair a moisturizing boost you can add some coconut oil. If your scalp is inflamed you can add aloe to calm the irritation. After mixing the ingredients according to your needs apply them to the hair, leave it for 30 minutes, rinse and watch your hair shine.

The best way to make that lipstick look perfect is when you moisturize and treat your lips on a weekly basis. Hydration is key when you want to achieve that perfect look, but scrubbing shouldn't fall short. One of the most basic and effective at-home lip scrubs is a mixture of equal parts of honey, coconut oil, and organic raw sugar. By combining these ingredients you can achieve smooth lips every time. 

Coconut oil has insane moisturizing properties, omega fatty acids, and anti-bacterial benefits. You can also add honey to combat dry chapped lips and to give a soothing feeling. It’s important that when using this treatment you don’t rub it too hard on the lips, as it can hurt your lips. Bonus points for this one are that it is completely safe to use and if some of it gets into your mouth you will enjoy it.

As you can see most of the ingredients you already have in your kitchen. Make sure to patch test them on the side of your neck before to make sure you don’t react to the mixture. Try these masks once a week and make sure to be relaxed and leave any distractions aside so you can enjoy the time with yourself. Also, drink plenty of water on a daily basis. Hydration is key to any beauty routine. 

These treatments are inexpensive and with just a couple of minutes and some ingredients that you already have, you can create your own at-some-spa. During these difficult times, it’s important that we take care of our bodies and our minds so we can be ready for when all of this is over and we can continue with our previous routines and keep glowing.
