At-home treatments

By Milly Nolan

Simple beauty treatments made with household ingredients, on MiNDFOOD.

SALT OR SUGAR SCRUB

Great for removing dead skin cells and brightening the complexion.

Mix 1 cup of salt or brown sugar with ½ cup of oil such as almond, grape seed or rice bran.

You can also add drops of essential oils depending on what mood you are trying to achieve – whether you want to relax or be revitalised, for example.

Once combined, apply to dry skin using circular motions. Leave the scrub on for 15-20 minutes and wash off with warm water.

FACE MASK

Great for hydration.

Mash ½ soft avocado with ¼ cup manuka honey. Apply to skin for 15-20 minutes then rinse with a cool face cloth.
