Create your own beauty recipes

The right ingredients of your beauty recipes
In gastronomy, a "kitchen background" is necessary to make most recipes at short notice. Regarding your beauty mixtures, here are the main ingredients you need:
Your shopping list
Extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil
Fruits: strawberries, bananas, lemon
Dairy products: fromage blanc, crème fraîche
Coarse salt and sugar
These recipes do not contain preservatives, do not prepare them in advance.

Body care of your beauty recipes
Firm breasts
Massage your chest daily with an ice cube, placed in a thin cloth.
Beautiful hands
A simple recipe for dry hands. Prepare a puree with a ripe banana and a knob of butter. Crumble your hands, leave for a few minutes, rinse and dry.
Soft feet
It's simple and does not require any preparation. Massage your feet with olive oil.
A smooth body
Prepare your scrub with a teaspoon of coarse sea salt, 5 tablespoons of olive oil and 6 drops of lavender essential oil. Massage your body (making circular movements) with this mixture then rinse. For hands, prepare a softer texture with powdered sugar and lemon juice.

The care of face of your beauty recipes
Against wrinkles
Mix a tablespoon of avocado oil with 2 tablespoons of cottage cheese. Apply this mask on your face and leave on for 15 minutes. Remove the excess with a cotton pad and rinse with warm water.
Against the skin that pulls
Nothing better than this nourishing mask made with a (ripe) avocado mixed with two tablespoons of olive oil. Apply to your face and leave on for 10 minutes.
Clear skin
To make a cleaning mask: mix a tablespoon of lightened white cheese with a little lemon juice. Add just enough powdered tea so that the product has the right consistency to be applied.

Another recipe, more greedy and more seasonal, made with: 5 ripe strawberries, a tablespoon of crème fraîche, a teaspoon of olive oil and clay. Leave 20 minutes on the face.

Nothing like a "gentle" exfoliant. Gently massage your face with a sugar-based formula and lukewarm water. Rinse and smile. Do not forget to hydrate then.

Hair care of your beauty recipes
A shiny hair
It's very simple, a few drops of lemon in the rinsing water.
For strong hair
Mix an egg yolk with a tablespoon of burdock root oil. Apply to slightly moistened hair and massage the scalp. Leave on for 20 to 60 minutes and rinse thoroughly with warm water before gentle shampooing.
